    hi everybody.

    1.18 droped and it is amazing.
    I really love the auction house but there is 1 big thing i freaking hate.

    How prices are displayed.

    As you can see in the auction house the prices are in emeralds. So lets say i want to sell a warp for 15 stacks of le it wil cost like 4720820 emeralds (i know this is a random number). So every time i want to check the price of a item i need to use my calculator and i hate it. Things whould be way better and easier if you just set it to eb or le

    For example if its more than 64 emeralds, just let it say Eb, if its more than 4096 emeralds let it say le and if its like 5087 emeralds let it say 1 le 1 eb and 27 em, i think this is way easier

    Now we have the problem with setting a price cuz you can’t say 15le 38 eb and 45 em in chat.

    There for make a somthing like this https://imgur.com/a/gQP1Uf0 (sorry for using link) the banners in the pic would become arrows and if you left click you add +1 or ofc -1 and right click you +10 or -10 for le you could also make a +64 click or something so you can set it 2 stacks real easy

    A other way to do this is just to click on the emerald block (select it) and than just type in chat how much eb you want for it.
    Let say you want to sell a item for 56 blocks
    You just select EB and than type in chat how much. In this case we whould type 56

    maby this will take more time to set a price (not sure) but it makes it way easier to read the price of a item.


    let me know what you guys think i tried to make this thread simple but understandable i know my English
    is shit so if i need to change stuff pleas let me know

    Great thread, i think everyone is going to agree with you on this, but I would say instead of having banners, you should be able to set the price of each thing in the chat. For example, you could click the LE and type 40, then click the EB and type 3, then click the emerald and type 3.

    For displaying the price on the item, it shouldn't be that much of a hassle anyway.

    private String formatPrice(Item item) {
    String str = "";
    int num = item.getPrice();

    if (num> 64*64) {
    str += "LE: " + num / (64 * 64);
    num %= 64*64;
    str += "\nEB: " + num / 64;
    num %= 64;
    str += "\nE: " + num;
    }
    else if (num > 64) {
    str += "EB: " + num / 64;
    num %= 64;
    str += "\nE: " + num;
    }
    else {
    str += "E: " + num;
    }
    return str;
    }
    EX:
    5000 item price would equate to an output of...
    LE: 1
    EB: 14
    E: 8

    That's a poorly-formatted representation of what the logic would essentially be. They probably have a currency symbol doo-hickey somewhere but overall being able to display something like this shouldn't be a hassle at all, other than figuring out a way to make it all on one line.

    Which actually, now that I think about it, is probably what they were going for. They wanted to show the Highest Buyer and Lowest Seller and 2w Average in as little many lines as possible.

    I think what they could do is perhaps make the book that displays this data clickable (if it isn't already; I'd have to check) and show a chest gui that lets you hover over the three distinct books, one for each of the data they want to show (Highest Buyer, Lowest Seller, and 2w Average), but instead of just a bunch of emerald counts, it'll show these specific values. It's a pain in the rear but compared to what he have now it's better than that IMO.

    I mean, I can almost guarantee there's a reason as to why it wasn't implemented that way. If it was easy, I'm sure it would've been put in. If it was something that was thought to be better for the game, I'm sure it would've been put in. I'm not saying it's a bad idea at all, I think it'd be great. It would certainly be beneficial to everyone. But thinking of how easy it sounds, especially since Merchants around the map display prices as such already, there's most likely a reason for it not being in the Marketplace. Hopefully in the future if people are still wanting this kind of change, it can be done

    That's true. They probably know people would rather see prices in terms of LE and EB. That's why I'm pretty sure they just wanted to simply fit it on one line.
