Crafting in KR has not improved

    Ok, I committed myself to fill some barbed kit large BODs using the KR client only.

    It's been at least six months since I attempted any significant crafting in KR.

    I'm thoroughly dismayed that the crafting interface hasn't improved and it's still buggy. Every time I chose a specific item to craft the gump jumped over to the right side of my screen. Every time.

    I still can't believe the devs haven't added at least some minor distinctions between the different gumps in KR. The bland brown and gold and translucent background is just downright not pleasant on the eyes.

    I filled four different LBODs and had to search through my BOD books for the smalls. The BOD book filter menu freaking sucks. You have to scroll down to each option and when you click on one not only does it not have any kind of permanent indicator as to which option is chosen, but the menu resets itself back to the top. You have to scroll down again to choose the next filter option. How hard could it be to make the dang gump similar to the one in 2d?

    Then of course there's the backpack itself. Absolutely not one bit of improvement there in many months. It's still impossible to drop anything and have it end up where you want it. I had to constantly pick up and redrop items to get then into a useable position. BODs getting stacked upon one another was a constant problem. I accidentally picked up my salvage bag when dbl clicking on it and it ended up under my rune books which I then had to move them all to get to the salvage bag.

    All in all the whole process sucked. It took much much longer to fill the BODs in KR than it would have in 2d.

    Devs if you are putting so much effort into improving crafting and you want us to use KR then you need to make some serious changes and improvements to the crafting menus and interface in KR because right now it's terrible.

    I thought crafting wasn't too bad in KR. I have my backpack setup as a grid view so everything has its own square, easy access. I have my backpack in the upper left, the BOD open below it and the crafting window on the right side. I burned thru about 40 BODs over the weekend and it went ALOT quicker with the ability to specify how many of the items to create. Click the bod, scroll thru the grid backpack and select the items. lather, rinse, repeat.

    The only complaint I really have about the crafting gump is when you choose to make a specific # of items. The GUI sometimes jumps and you lose the mouse position if you dont click the number right AND it would switch down to making maximum amount. Needing to click the button to make the items twice is also an annoyance but over all I thought the process was pretty painless.

    I haven't tried it in awhile either. I'll give it a go when I get home tonight.

    not sure if there is an easier way to do things regarding the bod books... in my case I usually run the 2d client, I already got all the bods I wanted to work on out of my books and THEN decided, oh hey lets give the KR client a shot.

    EDIT: Ignore all of this, I just found the same longer thread over in the KR forums.
