I just wasted 2 hours of my life for nothing, trying to find a shop that sells the stuff i’m looking for.
I went trough countless hubs and malls. Without success.
That can’t be the way trading is supposed to work in this game. It’s not fun, it’s not even a game, it’s just wasting huge amounts of time.
There are probably hundreds of thousends of shop stands in this universe scattered across 50 planets and 1.061.683.200 (1 BILLION) square blocks how are we ■■■■■■■ supposed to find the one we need? By pure chance? No thank you, my life is too short for that.
And it gets worse and worse the more the universe grows and the more items are added.
Why can’t we get something like this ingame?
My suggestion is not meant to be an auction house, you can’t directly buy or sell anything.
It is just a universe wide (or planet wide) overview, You still have to go there and pick the stuff up yourself.
I don’t mind traveling to shop stands to pick stuff. It’s actually exciting and satisfies the explorer needs. Trying to locate the shop that sells the stuff that you want, based on planet name and coordinates, it’s like a scavenger hunt and far more fun and exciting the running in circles through the same shop portals aimlessly.
The boundless trade website showed me a lot of nice builds and locations this way that I would have never visited otherwise.
It gives exposure to small shops. Without an overview like that you always revert back to the big shops/malls with the big portals.
Spending 2+ hours looking for stuff and comparing prices sounds like fun at first but is not viable for years to come.
Esp with stuff that only very few shops offer and Esp after using the boundless trade website for the past months it’s now impossible for me revert back to wasting time on epic proportions like that.
So unless we get an overview like this again I’m afraid that the boundless economy is dead to me and I have to revert to soloing everything. (Which I don’t really want, since it’s supposed to be an MMO.)
I just noticed that the image i posted says “regional market”, so maybe it doesn’t even have to be universe wide, maybe just planet wide or current planet + the ones visiable in the sky.
Heck, even render distance wide would be a huge help.
