Right, since this is for v1.0 there can't really be any big changes from the original, but I don't think there's much to be changed anyhow. My idea is this: Am I the only one who was annoyed at sieving through the whole list of items trying to find the one I want to buy/sell? Also don't you want to know a little about what you are buying before you buy it?
Well, since there is already the screen for the X.Net I think this could be easily adapted, both in code and graphics wise to these ends. Basically if it looked very simular to the aforementioned screen then it would be a benifit for consistancy as well. What I was thinking of was having the space where the current sub sections of X.Net into subsections of equipment, e.g. Human Guns, Alien Guns, Explosives etc.
Then where the current X.Net entries are posted can be reused for exactly the same purpose, thus helping the player know what he is buying, save on code and even save on space since the whole background is reused :happybanana:
How does that sound?
Edit: Thinking about it quite a bit of stuff will need 2 be moved around, and I think that there should be a reduced size image with a reduced description so that the actual item listing takes up about 1/4 of the screen. So maybe I was a little ambitions thinking that a lot could be reused, but code wise I'd imagine that it wouldn't be that hard. Maybe the image isn't even really necessary just a short item stats part.
