Looked over the new search feature and I have only 2 issues. First and foremost why the hell are you using this necro thread for feedback (as if I have to ask). Apart from that in the old search I can turn on "simple view" under "sort by" and get a far more useful display that doesn't have to load up a bunch of icons that I don't care about. Please add this feature to the new search, preferably somewhere more intelligent than in the "sort by" options.

A question, the blog mentioned a contract copying mechanism. Is this not implemented yet or am I just not finding it?

Overall this looks decent.

Just set max price to 1 isk for that
Edit: Nevermind, they ****ed it up so that you can only set limits in million isk units. WTF, guys?

Not liking the new beta contract system. As one guy said earlier in the thread you want simple information presented, no need to pretty it up! Also the new contract system has a delay on global searches, you click search for contracts from all regions and takes about 20-30 seconds to refresh with new contracts? The old system was more responsive! It shows you contracts as they are posted in every region. Why fix the old system when it wasn't broken in the first place?

Lets give an example:

Old system:

Click get contracts from all regions sorted by when they were issued. Get a 'to the second' report of the global contracts. Click get contracts again get a new list of contracts.

New system:

Click search get a list of all contracts from all regions. Click search again to see new contracts and they don't appear? Click on get contracts from the old system and there are about 5 new contracts issued. Click on search on the beta system and it hasn't updated with the new contracts issued in the last minute or so? Is this intended to put less stress on the contract system? It's as if you get a set of global contracts sent to the client which is only updated once every 30 seconds to a minute! I want up to date contract searches that refresh as they are created, don't need delay! What's the deal with this ccp?

Oh I love the new contracts engine, it's fairly fast and comfortable to use. I would suggest to enable user to choose large or small icons so that more contracts (literaly - lines referencing contracts) fit in the same window size.

Thanks for a good feature!

Wondering, what about the rest of the NeoCom? Rolling Eyes

Posted - 2011.01.28 14:20:00 - [220]

The new search gives much much more options for contractors.. and thats avesome but i found few mising things.

1. How to search only auctions? I was using it a lot in old system and its impossible to do that now. (mayby add another l33t option for that)
2. Could you please fix grid in '[Want to Buy]' windows.. You should be able to rigth click on items there and have usual menu with 'Show Info, View markets details, Find in contratcs' etc.. as in sell window grid..
3. Wildcards... that would be awesome..
4. More l33t options like multi search like 'Raven,Capacitor Control Circuit'
5. Sorting by price (in hidden simple view, im not sure how its working in normal one) is sorting auctions by starting bid not actual prices (It show correct price)
6. Sorting orders and all other settings are not saved
7. In simple wiev its impossible to see difference between auction and Item Exchange

Great work. The new contract set up is easier to use. Even for dinosaurs who prefer pen and paper. If I can use it anyone can.

Posted - 2011.01.28 15:29:00 - [222]

I would like to reiterate the request to be able to search for only blueprint (original) as opposed to blueprint (copy)

Otherwise so far so good

a little more pretty, and this is missing:

- export + save a search query as a link
- ability to define a search query including "AND" for several items / item names (e.g. 2 items having the same attributes, but search by name does not work well, say you want contracts for centus and corpus large reppers but not core reppers)
- if you have a single item in contract list shown, add "create/setup contract" to the context menu for that contract, so could e.g. set up a buy contract easily
- make drag and drop work to add "requested items from buyer" (drop a contract there / drop items there), so no more need to type

bug: when setting sort by price + ascending, only contracts with positive prices are sorted, not "want to buy" contracts

Posted - 2011.01.28 17:09:00 - [226]

Search by description is an absolute must.

Hope you will implement it, during the next update.

"search by description" - care to elaborate the use of that? what am i missing?

more ideas:
- add column "quantity" and fill it if a specific item is searched, will reduce scams considerably
- add search filter "system sec status", so e.g. low/null can be excluded

I really like the new contracts search. But I'd like it to remember the things I've selected for the earch options, and when searching all regions, you need to be able to sort by jumps.

Ok, so far looks good and I'm loving it, here's a few things I've noticed that I think aren't working as intended:

*When Listing by price WTB orders with highest pay are listed on the bottom, thats probably because of the negative sign

*When you type in the item type, the list for selecting exactly which item you meant comes up when you hit the search button, not when you switch focus from the field in the old contracts.

I thought there was also a bug with the price filter but then I realized it's in Millions, so ooops, my bad :)

Awesome, just add the sub menus:

Item category

Item group

And it will be perfect imo.

When moving to the next page after having got to the bottom of a page it would be nice if it automatically moved to show the top of the new page and not the bottom.

It'd be nice if you could search for BPO's without having to sort through all the BPC's.

I like the general layout. its easily navacable.

It would nice to have a quantity column for ex:[Want to Buy/sell] x1, x2, or x3 so its eaiser to find adaquate quantities rather than having sift through 20 contracts to find one asking for or selling more than one primarly in PLEX, but would be good for just about everything being contracted.

it would also be nice to be able sort a primary column and a secondary column. So you can set primary as Name and group all similar items togather then sort by price to get high to low on different items, maybe even be able to search a group of items, like shields rather than just a specific shield by name.

when sorting by price, negative amounts are not sorted properly.

gist x-type x-large shield booster, 800million want to buy is in the middle of list, rather than at bottom where I would have expected the highest offer to be.

Posted - 2011.01.29 04:09:00 - [236]

I like the changes... Makes trying to find stuff so much easier... thanks. Many times I just check contracts to see how much stuff is selling for when I sell to friends etc, so being able to find things quicker is a big help.

It's about time.

I guess the only thing missing is some kind of autocomplete implementation for the search term. To re-use code you already have, copy/paste from the autolink code.

edit: Rightclicking a contract assigned to me should have a Location sub-menu (like when you right click a market purchase in your wallet), so I can set dest without having to actually open up the contract.

very very good. New set up is great.

Horrible. Why? Because 98% of the contracts are scams. I simply cant be arsed to sift through hundreds of fake contracts made by alts. What a joke, back to the drawning board.

There is an update bug in the global search engine for the beta contract system. If you click search ordered date issued it gives you a snapshot off all the contracts issued at that point in time. If you then click again about 30 seconds later the list hasn't been updated with all the new contracts? If you look on the old system there have been about 10 or more contracts issued in the 30 second window. Will this bug be fixed?
