Crafting interface enhancement SUGGESTION.
Hello.
Trying to craft some things I noticed some things in the crafting interface would be really useful. I will explain what those things are.

1-The boxes with the required ingredients say that you have that item with a green mark, or the red X if you don¡t have that item. What it does not say is the quantity of that ingredient in your inventory, so if you have 1 steel ingot and you require 3 ingots to mae someting, the crafting interface will tell you you have everything, but in reallity you don't, you can have only one ingot and the interface will mark in green the 3 steel ingots slots for required ingredients but when you click on craft, it'll say you don't have the craftablesª

2- You shoul be able to sort items by required level, materials type of items like weapons, armour, shield, breastplates, feet, pants etc.

3- Not only that. I find that being able to search an item by writint it would be really faster if you now what you are looking for and there are a lot of items to craft.

So at least the most importat thing is that the interface should make you know how many materials of one type you have, like if you have 1 gold ingot, it should say "1" in some place for a recipe.

This has been buggy for a long time. I know that GLG was slowly improving the crafting interface with small changes with each update, but that was before Clockwork Empires. Note that if you toggle the filters, those recipes that don't have sufficient numbers of a particular ingredient will disappear. But if you don't play with them, by default, it often will include, as you say, recipes for which you have the correct type of ingredients, but not sufficent numbers.

I Totally agree with you here, but again, not sure that it will happen any time soon.

A text search would be useful, yes.

As I said, the devs are currently focused on "Clockwork Empires", but if you want, you can check the suggestions section of the GLG forums. They ARE working on an update, but my guess is that it won't be a big one (probably primarily tweaks and bug fixes at this point, at least for the near future). http://community.gaslampgames.com/forums/suggestions.5/

Some time after CE is released, we may see a bigger update (I hope).
