It's kind of sad how happy this makes me.

I don't use the replicator all that often, but I agree this was a nice move. Was really annoying having to scroll past all that useless food to get to the commodities.

Nice that they did this, if anybody was still buying it out of the replicator.

There is a magical answer for cheap commodities: its called "Public Service" channel.
Just ask for a Tuffli/Cell ship invite and voila, you have discount commodities. Without food anywhere in the list. Or just get yourself one of the above mentioned ships .

Personally, I dislike this change. I'm gonna need a lot of food soon: starbase T2 bartender. But that's just me. I can see the value of this change.

If the time to get an invite to a cell/tufflei or going to the fleet embassy was worth the savings i would do it but its not worth the time doing those things unless i am going to donate 600+ expensive commodoties. The savings on the rep seriously isnt worth it to me, 1 fleet alert and the loot paid for the rep commodoties.

Need some commodoties for a doff asignment and taking the time to find cheap commodoties is wasted time. So yeah moving the commodoties to the top is a good change.

For Fed i just exit sol and there is a ship right there ahead of you (not to mention another off to the right that moves) thats a bit cheaper than the tuffli discount anyways. Never quite figured out what to do with my Klingons. I hate trying to find the ships in other sectors as they move.

I just wish they'd add a "buy stack" button. You know, just one button that will buy a full stack of 20/250/whatever of whatever it is you're buying. There's plenty of room on the interface, and it'd make it a whole lot easier to stock up for fleet projects. 1 click (using ctrl) to buy 250 items, instead of 3 clicks, 3 slider drags, and 3 more clicks?

Now if only they'd fix the DOff window so it stays on the assignment when you use the replicator...

"Oh look, that mission I need is under my Tac officer. Hmm, I need X meds, Y provisions, and Z stem bolts."

*opens replicator*

"Wait, how many stem bolts did I need?"

*looks at DOff window, which has reverted back to "Dilithium Mining in an Unstable Cluster" and facepalms*
