Make logistic requests easy to find.

Post by MrBadDragon »

It would be handy to be able to have a toggle to allow you to sort logistic requests much like your inventory is sorted.

Alternatively when you hover over a logistic request the inventory items light up. Can this functionality be inverted so that when you hover over an item in your inventory, the corresponding logistic request lights up.

Plus one for this suggestion! The option to have the requests list sort or autosort the same way the inventory does would solve this and make the interfaces consistent.

Now that there are an unlimited number of logistic request slots in the character, it's very easy to lose track of where (or when) you added a particular item. The icons are more difficult to scan visually because of the text drawn on top of them. It's also confusing because we are used to finding items in the auto-sorted inventory, but the requests panel can have just as many items but they are in a totally different order.

The search box does indeed apply to both inventory and logistics panels. But if that's the solution, there's even less reason to leave the requests in a manually defined order (either chaotic or OCD arranged).
