Ships should be in alphabetical order in craft screen

Recommended Posts

Ships should be in alphabetical order in the ship crafting menu with the choice to put them in ascending or descending order depending on the letter it begins with.

 

Agas should be at the top then Bucs with Vics further down the list.

comment is too short to decipher

the best would be to have a sorting choice. By alphabetical order, by rank, by shipyard level necessary to craft them. Filters could be useful too, warships, trading ships.

@Gregory Rainsborough is talking about the ship crafting menu. The suggestion is to organize the ship names alphabetically from top to bottom. Currently the names are random and not intuitive when looking for a specific ship to craft.

This is something that has bothered me for awhile but never said anything in hopes that the new UI will fix this issue.

Assign color and number to each rate, this way we will be able to quickly distinguish ships for each category. No need to sort by alphabet. Rate colors is the most efficient way to sort ships. By looking at the color player will automatically know where it belongs. Having a simple 'colored' square with rate number next to ship name is the way to go--> VICTORY [ 1 ]. 

1st rates - Color 1 00000000

LOCEAN [ 1 ]

SANTISIMA [ 1 ]

VICTORY [ 1 ]

2nd rates - Color 2 00000000

PAVEL [ 2 ]

BUCENTAURE [ 2 ]

3rd rates - Color 3 00000000

BELLONA [ 3 ]

WASA [ 3 ]

4th rates - Color 4 00000000

5th rates - Color 5 00000000

6th Rates - Color 6 00000000

Everything needs the ability to sort by different means.  The warehouse is currently terrible, when you select sort it does so by category and thats about it, nothing alphabetic.  Ship crafting, I'd suggest by alphabet and then add different methods such as rate etc.  With the new UI colours etc could also be incorporated for the different items, ship rates, books, modules etc as well.

Since we now have the whole RNG crafting ship color thing, I’d say sorting by color would confuse some.

Well that sucks because it could work wonders.

UI changes coming so be patient

This is the time to make our suggestions, for years UI suggestions may have been put on the shelf and are likely so numerous...  Lets bring them back up so they are fresh...

Well all these screens should listed in a table format with all relevant properties for easy sorting by any column you choose, alphabetical or any other.  Make the lists presentable and fully sortable, new UI notwithstanding.  ;)
