With the recent "Vanguard" release we have also introduced the new Multibuy feature. Multibuy allows you to buy several things at once (if available). The clever part is that Multibuy has been integrated into the Fitting browser and Industry UI, so that you can now easily buy whole fitting sets or materials for blueprints.

Read more about this feature and its potential in CCP karkur's latest dev blog Multibuy All the Things.

As an avid market guy - THANK YOU.

One suggestion though, the window itself doesn't look that big....can you make it a tad bigger by adding one more bit of information to it?

Please add an average mean price over the past year for each item or a low/high price for the past year. This data is already available in the market graph section. It would just be nice to see it next to multi-buy orders as to help mitigate the possibility of scamming/convenience buying misjudgment.

Your push in this article was to let people know that with convenience there comes a price...I would just like to see that mitigated a little bit more. Seeing as window GUI real-estate isn't a problem here, and all it would take is some programming to slip those numbers in there, I don't see this as a huge request, but it would give people in new eden a much better understanding of price trends and the "REAL" price of a product.

e.g. CN Shield Extender - price was a year ago much lower, than average price now...Why? This yearly price comparison would at least notify the buyer to it. Keeping in mind that even Amarr, Dodix, and Jita can be scammed with low volume items. This is the same logic I believe drove you to move most items to the MARKET window themselves years ago instead of only allowing them on contracts. To help fight scamming and to watch the real price of an item more realistically. My two cents.

Thanks

I'm a big fan of not having to rightclick, so can you please think of some way to turn those right clicks into the proper buttons they should be?

My nitpick of the day.

These are the kind of improvements to the game I like to see. Thank you for giving us this convenience.

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.

Support better localization for the Japanese Community.

First, we were told to "Shoot all the things."
After many years, we learned we could "Sell all the things."
Finally, we can "Buy all the things!"
The circle of Things is complete!

I would LOVE to be able to multi-buy from the clipboard

Skip the lines that start with a #
For all the remaining lines, if the line consists of a item name and a number add it to my multi-buy.

Can't wait to use it (on RL travel right now), as I'm not stocking ships and fits in advance but buying everything when needed, 90% re-buy the ship/fit I just lost.

Curious how difficult it was to implement ...

Just tried the multi-buy, and it is effing awesome Big smile, such a time saver!

One request: Can you add a feature that allows you to sort the items in the multi-buy window? (at least alphabetically)
