I had some downtime today so made a quick PoC (very rough draft) of a Green Steel crafting planner utilizing the similar functionality of the Barter UI.
My thought behind this was that I already had all the data in place from my pre-existing crafting planner but more and more people are becoming used to the in-game barter UI that it might ease their learning curve to be able to leverage that familiar feel for planning out green steel.
Aside from the functionality / layout you'll see in my PoC link below, I'd also intend to add an "ingredients" tab (saved to DB with a passkey you'd create) where you could enter in what you have and then either filter it to show what you are currently able to make or to show you the ingredient deficit after you plan out the item you want to make.
Current functionality is limited to what I could quickly pound out today
- Filters should all work
- Bonus Effect Descriptions shown on Hover
- Back-end logic to filter as you select elements (but you can't currently select them)
Again, not much to it yet. Didn't want to invest any real time in it if people felt that there was no need for YACP (yet another crafting planner).
Here's the link for those who are interested. Feedback, comments, concerns and suggestions are all welcome.
