Auto inventory sorting coming for Phase 4

#1bleachhero11Posted 7/16/2013 6:40:19 PM
"Until now, we had planned for a sort/arrange process to take place on the server-side database which collects player information.

However, in phase 3 with the addition of the Armoury Chest, player inventories immediately increased to 400 slots, and we have had to revamp these processes that we had originally planned for.

While it will take a bit of work, we are now proceeding to switch the sort/arrange process to take place client-side. With this system in place, it should address the requests we have been receiving.

Below are the features that will be ready for phase 4:
Inventory: It will be possible to use a feature that automatically separates items into categories when obtaining items.
We will be making it easier to identify items that can be equipped and those that cannot by adding an "X" over the equipment icons.

The specs for the inventory item search feature have been completed; however, due to the fact that the person in charge of implementing this is the same for the above, it will be addressed after the sort-related features have been implemented. We appreciate your patience."

Yesssss. I was hoping they would put in a feature that would tell us what we can/cannot equip as to limit having to sort through ridiculous amounts of equipment as we continue to acquire more.

Good on them. Thanks for the post, TC.

My main issue here is what about the caster gear that is "equip-able by all classes". Under there rules it wont be X out and well still have a bunch of gear to sort through to find what were looking for.

Maybe they will implement certain filters? If the equipment's required level is above yours, it will obviously have an X over it, so that's taken care of. However, for the gear that you can equip due to meeting the required level, maybe they can have a sort function based off of its stats? Y'know, str/dex items are grouped together, int/mnd gear are grouped together and crafting gear is grouped together. *shrug*

I'd imagine making use of saving gear sets would probably make some of this a bit less of a hassle.

Awesome. I'm hoping the vanity slots are introduced and explained in detail soon. Hopefully there aren't any real limitations on it.
