ncarty97: 1) engine speed. BG2 is just faster, which means it takes less time for you to explore an area, get from point A to point B, etc. (there may be a way to change this in the ini file for BG1, but I can't remember)

2) Containers - Scroll Cases, Gem Bags, Etc., there are just too many of those items you come across if you don't have the containers to store them

3) the Tab key. Given the vast number of barrels, chests, etc. that are just background and not actual containers, it's a real pain to hover over each one to find stuff. Love hitting tab and seeing everything I need to check into.

grogerson: I can't speak for item 1, but BG1 Tweaks has a Portable Containers component. They're bottomless, but they do have the problem of removing items one at a time. This can be a real pain for arrows, bolts and bullets. As for item 3, Tales of the Sword Coast enabled that very hot-key.
With the arrows and such in containers, you can double click on the items and it'll bring up a box asking you how many items you wanna take out of the stack.
@ ncarty97 - You're probable right about the tab key. I may have crossed wires with IWD. They added the tab key function with HoW.

@ Shadowsetzer - For vanilla BG1 a work-around had to be devised since portable containers were never attempted, and BG1 Tweaks is for vanilla BG1. Items in the container are not considered in the party (they've been sold), and only one item of a type can be removed at a time. Limits of the engine. It helps for inventory management and getting extra cash for selling things, but it can be a real chore if you have a lot of 'em.

Ah, alright. I thought we were talking about the BG2 engine. My mistake. :(

Yeah, I think you are right on that. I seem to remember it getting added into IWD as well.
