military equipment

make items disappear off the equipment screen when you assign them to your dwarfs. it is very annoying spending time finding which glove the dwarf didnt decide to pick up, especially when you have 20 pairs of gloves.

or perhaps just a visual tag on items that are currently equipped? such as the ones used for dump or forbidden items.

Tag which would also be visible in stocks menu? Sounds good.

well that is kinda what i meant. for k or t or in the z menu.

Add tag for item being "o"wned while we are at it :), id say military dwarf would have trouble equipping someone elses socks even if owner does not wear them...

Yes, a way to avoid double-assignments of things would be sooo useful.

Heck, wouldn't hurt to have it flag the slabs you're in the process of engraving and the spikes you're working on attaching, too, because you can do both of those things twice the way things are.

You should die horribly for this. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

We already have it in the stocks menu that tells you what things are picked up, I think it's blue.

As far as I know, the blue color in the stocks menu only shows what items are currently used in buildings and traps. Having the same color for items that are currently worn would be very useful and intuitive.
