View Full Version : Easy and practical Idea about Menus

Hello fellow DDO'ers,

I would like to propose a better organization in the menus, specifically the "Feats" Tab in the character menu. I come across times when I want to find new feats (from character level up) and it gets hard simply because they're organised alphabetically and I don't know its name by heart, I think it would be of everyone's benefit if there was an option allowing to display Feats (And other tabs) in other forms of organization such as:

Feats

By Group:

- Natural Feats: The ones you get automatically independently of your class (Auto Attack; Trip; Sunder)
- Racial Feats: The passive feats you get from your class (Weapon proficiencies for example)
- Class Feats: The ones you get automatically for your class (Bard Songs as an example)
- Chosen Feats: The ones you choose (Whether in your path or costumized) when you reach Feat milestones
~ Toggling Feats
~ Metamagic Feats
~ All others

Here's something I thought of:

Enhancements:

By group:

- Racial Enhancements
- Class Enhancements
- Spell-related Enhancements
- Skill-related Enhancements
- Feat-related Enhancements

Spells:
- By school

Adventure Compendium:
- By Paying Type
~F2P
~P2P

Map:
- Could have a listing of local NPC's (They would be targeted on click)

-------

All of these organization types would be added to both the Character window and the Trainer's window
They would be an OPTION, they would not be a change, just a simple option for those who would like it, so for those who prefer the current organization styles, you could still use them

I like this, though perhaps with some better names and a little bit of refinement.

Would love to see this, would also like to not have to see every wiz/sorc damage/crit enhancement whenever I uncheck "Show unavailable" on my pure barbarian.

I likes it, your idea!:D

Also what sirdanile said. About the enhancement list including stuff from a class you're not even playing atm when you "show unavailable". Summin oughtta be done about that too.

I have mentally digested this idea in about 0.6 seconds, and found it to be good.

Make it so.

Well, I suppose that kind of post adds a little bit more than a '^this' post, right?

That is an excellent idea and I would think it also does not take much resources to implement. I would think they would not make such categories for F2P, VIP/Premium in the compendium though: people need to see what they don't have and crave it. ^^ (Of course that is how I think Turbine would think, not my personal view)
