TL;DR
Mousing-over an item in your inventory will cause the logistic request slot the requests it to highlight and flash.

Why ?
The logistic request screen can get crowded as can your inventory. This suggestion would make it easy to find the logistic requests that are causing items to be in your inventory. This would make inventory management easier.
Thank You!
Thank you for your consideration of this idea. Also, thank you for making this game, it has brought so much joy to my life.

Highlight Logistic Filter Slot on hovering over item

Post by Schaeberlej »

TL;DR
When you hover over an item in your inventory the corresponding request slot get highlighted.

What ?
When you hover over the logistic Request ihe items in your inventory get highlighted.
It would be nice, if this works the other way too.
Or maby also, if you hace an item in your curser.
Why ?
When you have lots of request slots it can get quite messy.
Therefore it would help to see the Slot, where you requested the Item to change it around.

I like the idea of auto sorting logistics requests. Maybe they can be put in rows like the crafting menu.

Blinking logistics vice versa

Post by WildBraas »

What did you do?
With open user inventory I move cursor to existing item and want to change logistic query, but it not blinking as if I move cursor to logistics section.

What did you expect to happen instead? It might be obvious to you, but do it anyway!
While I move cursor to chracter inventory or quick-bar slot I expect blinking item in logistic grid

highlight items when hovering logistic requests

Post by nuhll »

Hi,

currently if you have a logistic request for X and "go over it" it highlights the item in your inventar, nice!

i would suggest:



1.) please also highlight the item in your inventar when you go over it in the build menue, easier to find what you need
2.) what about doing the opposite of what its currently doing, so when you go over the item, highlight the request...?

Blasphemous! :)

(Would be great. I feel alway like an idiot, when I try to add an item that is already added and I don’t see it.)


Edit:
Nearly identical idea:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=98008 Quality of Life Improvement to Character Logistic Panel

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=96352 Three Personal Logistics improvements - save/restore, move, and highlighting


And moved to
