Show the name of the item being used for replicator fuel

A few times over my years of playing this game, I've accidentally used the wrong item as replicator fuel, because it looked similar to something else. Seeing the name of the item in the quantity selection dialog would be helpful.

    This.....
  • helpful indeed.
  • I agree and it would be very helpful when clearing out excess inventory by converting it to rep rations
  • Exactly

    I've seen this request mentioned in other threads. It's a good idea. Maybe giving this idea its own thread will help. FYI, you can already tap the item in the quantity selection box to see the name. It took me a while to find that out.

    If there's multiples, you can tap the item in the quantity selection box, but if there is only one, then you have to jump through some painful hoops to find the name. It would be nicer to have the name automatically displayed.

    Question for the room: Should anything with a quantity of 1 pop up the quantity selection box? It is currently streamlined with a single tap. Would it be better to un-streamline the process so we can read the name. Personally, I can't think of a single time where I thought to myself, "Boy, it sure is nice that I can just tap this item once to get that big 0.02% increase in my replicator bar."

  • Prime Lorca, that would allow you to check what your where using, and it should not be hard to make everything show up there.

    I hate to judge the difficulty since I don't know much about coding, but it is my hope that it's not too difficult. Maybe just removing some lines of programming that streamline the process. But... ya never know.

  • I am a coder, and can say with some confidence that it shouldn't be a big change.

    I would love to see this. It would make me a lot more comfortable using crew specific items replicating.

    @Prime Lorca [10FH], making all quantities, including one, bring that up is one option. Another would be to make a long press (right click on PC) bring up the item context menu, but that may create issues on mobile.

    Not to hijack, but an extension of this would be to also allow the icons on the "used to make" section trappable/clickable so I can chase down if an item is of any use to any current crew. There's no way I know of to see the crafting tree in-game unless you have crew needing that equipment.
  • Please!
  • Yes, please! I would love to be able to tell what item I'm spending to replicate.
