I just had to create 85 contracts in just two hours and felt that the Drag-and-drop feature would make the process of filling out contracts comfortable.
The ability to add multiple materials has already been heard on the forum so I’ll skip that and drag-and-drop I don’t remember. Here’s how I see this feature.
- You choose the type of contract.
- You open the cargo settings (you see the fields for one material as now)
- Drag and drop the material you want to add and a horizontal format line appears as in the example below.
| 0 || BSE | x
| | is a yellow field you can fill in.
0 - number of materials
x - the possibility to delete one line
- You drag another material and its one horizontal line appears below the existing one.
- At the very bottom will be a yellow line with the shipping address.
Each item should have one line, so you don’t have to make an endless list of fields to fill if you have a lot of materials. A limit of 10 materials in the contract will be enough. Thanks.
Great idea. Love it. This may be the technical limitation for multiple items in a shipment order or other LM order though. We haven’t gotten those, and there may be some technical reason? Why that hasn’t been done yet. Would make life a lot easier though.
+1 is if there is a “fulfill all” button that atttempts to fulfill all components of it. Cause hitting fulfill 10 times and waiting for the confirmation every time would get old.
Of course, I am well aware that the implementation requires a lot of developer man-hours and do not expect this even in the next patch. This is more of a note for the future and a more detailed description of gameplay which may help for other updates.
It was worth adding that this is relevant to buy/sell on personal contracts. Even with my active play, I haven’t noticed much need for this in shipping or LM.
Just the title alone I know this would be a great feature.
And a price parser.
When it asks for the price, let me enter it as @xxxx (i.e. @385). Then it multiplies the number with the amount and enters it.
That way I do not have to have a calculator open besides my contracts.
