Add '%DBMarket' Column to Shopping Scan Results
My idea is to add a "%DBMarket" column to shopping scan results. Currently, the % column shows the percentage of a users maximum auction price as stipulated in the Shopping Operation. However, I think that there should be separate columns for this information.
My suggestion is to rename the current '%' column to '%MaxPrice', and add an additional column called '%DBMarket'. Users like myself can toggle the columns they are interested in seeing on or off, and sort by the one that is most useful to them.
Regarding why this is being suggested: it is very helpful to see what percentage of DBMarket the current buyout price of materials is at. This can currently be accomplished by setting the Maximum Auction Price to DBMarket. However, often times due to shifting markets I need to buy materials that are over DBMarket. To offset this, I must leave all my 'Show Acutions Above Max Price' set to 'Yes'. For users like myself who have many shopping scans, our results can be very large.
However, there are some items that I know I will never buy over a certain amount. For example, most materials I will not buy over 150% DBMarket. But if I set the Maximum Auction Price to 150% DBMarket, the % column now displays the percentage based on 150% DBMarket. In these cases, it would be helpful for me to still see what the percentage of DBMarket is.
I think renaming the current '%' column to '%MaxPrice' will make it clearer to users what this column shows. And adding an additional %DBMarket column will give users more data that will be helpful when deciding what to buy.
I've also had similar thoughts about this topic, though I feel it would be more versatile to simply create an option to choose which price source(s) are shown in the shopping/gathering scan table. This way you could quickly compare current prices to any/all sources that are applicable to you at once, removing the need to tinker with strings/settings and re-scanning in order to see different "valuation perspectives", so to speak.
