# 1 Purchase Quantities
12-25-2013, 09:04 AM
There are certain items I buy that I would really like to see receive multiple quantity purchase options.

These include, but are not limited to;
* Fleet Duty Officer purchasing - If I want to buy 100 officers I have to click 'Purchase' 100 times, and 'Ok' 100 times. This is also very time consuming. We can stack 50 DOFF boxes in our inventory, why can't we buy them in mass quantities?
* GPL Conversion Unit - If I want to trade in 100 Andorian Sleigh Bells I have to do each transaction individually. Again, very time consuming. I also think the price/reward is a bit skewed here but that's another story!

These are the only two I can think of at this exact moment but I think this is a long overdue improvement. I don't want to get repetitive strain injuries!

To the OP,

I would have to agree with you?.but there are any more places where this should be done as well.

OP if you hold down Ctrl while clicking to purchase an item you don't get the confirmatory box, so you only have to click once which makes it slightly quicker (I tend to do this when mass purchasing fleet doffs for starbase projects and spamming the mouse button can make this fairly quick as long as you don't get a case of finger RSI from it ).

However I do agree a mass purchase option for these (and other starbase inputs like photon torpedo launchers) would be useful especially when you've got to input something like 250 of a particular item.

How about anything you need to buy in bulk for the fleet grind? Right now my fleet is grinding T5 starbase tactical. One project calls for 34 Mk VII photon torpedoes.

You legend. Holding CTRL saved me so much time when I had to buy 750 duty officers!

Try double click on an item. Then select 1-100.
