Shopping Lists.

I often come across a situation where I am fitting a ship and notice I am missing x number of modules, so I tend to jot this down on a bit of paper and the next time I am over at the local Hub I get the items I am missing, this happens a lot when I am building something as well, recently with crafting some ships, there were things I was missing wrote them down, at the same time I was also fitting some ships and was missing bits for them as well so also wrote those down, at the end of the day I had a hefty list of scribbled down module names and quantities and it hit me, This is so stupid and should be something the game can do.

So the suggestion is simple, on all ship fitting windows next to the Buy All button I would like to see a button for Add to shopping List/Cart.

This could also be on a right click menu, I could right click on an item in my Hanger, a Ship , or items on the market browser which might not be available at the moment, and select Add to Shopping List/Cart

The the next time I get to a Hub I could open the market and click a button "Buy Shopping Cart/List" and it would go through stored list and buy all the things.

The above itself would be brilliant I think, but it could be taken a little further by giving us a little list manager so we could have a list for ship fittings, a list for industry or little custom lists for various things like "Satchels list of stuff to get for his pal" etc..

Would this be hard to implement ?

I use the Ingame Notepad (in "accessoires") for such things. Just open it, drag-and-drop the module into it, it will automatically Link the item. Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaa, there's my shopping list Smile

If you are in Jita next time, just rightclick the module in it and click "view market details".

Yeah tried that it works but not as well as having an automated in game feature that buys everything on the list in the same way the buy all button does on ship fittings.

Wow....if only we had a fitting window that could save dozens of fits for ships and autobuy and autofit the modules required.

If only.

I know, you might not want to waste a few million on extra modules....Oh man if only the autobuy had an ability to look at the items before buying them all and allow you to sort the quantity and such.

Move along, these aren't the droids you're looking for.

...

the quick bar is literally this. I feel more and more people are not looking to see if what they want is already in the game

Drag and drop to the market quick-bar, instant access to the items on your list and it handles folders etc so multiple lists aren't a problem.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
