Buying Multiple Crafting Supplies
I was taking one of my characters up in armor crafting ability yesterday and went from 0 to 75 points. Each work order requires 2 steel molds per piece or 16 molds if you craft all 8 pieces (I do - makes it go faster). If you are doing all 4 available work orders then the number required is 64 per run of 4 work orders. This in mind I usually get 128 at a time.
My problem is that in order to buy 128 steel molds I have to click the steel mold icon 128 times to do this. I've been a programmer (Fortran, Assy, C, C++, C#, Java and some 4GLs) since the late '70s and know that its not a big deal to add a box where the number could be added allowing me to buy 5 or 500 with the same effort.
Again, I don't mind have to do the work orders to learn it or having to buy the materials (I'll earn it back, especially in Tailoring). I just find having to repeatedly click several thousand times (literally) to buy the materials unnecessary. I do notice that we have the ability to 'Craft All' or specify a number of times to craft an item once we have the materials in hand - please add that feature to the purchase of the materials to do it.
