    I do think that the current way recopies are displayed is a bit confusing. If there a lot of smaller components to a larger piece it not only gets cluttered but definitely confusing for newer players who do not know which each individual piece builds into a bigger item (mek for example has a lot of smaller pieces, so someone, in theory who has no idea what pieces build into what, can have say the armor and the ring of regen but no completed pieces yet.) But that may just be an issue with newer players, and not really that much of an issue. IDK but I like the idea at least.
    I am well aware it could be a little too big for certain people. BUT as stated, it can be opened/closed using a button, So if you don't like it, then don't use it. It just would make it more of a quest to farm for your item.

    I love the small black box over the inventory. It is such a nice feature, I use it as much as I can when farming for very high-cost Core items or Luxuries that are according to the game situation.
    However, when you put items like Orchid or Linken's Sphere in that little black box, it gets cluthered easily.

    What I suggest is to be able to switch between 2 modes for the quick black box :
    • The current format (small, compressed, doesn't pop out of the Shop button's height)

    OR
    • A new, bigger format which would allow to show double the height of the default black box.


    Those 2 modes can then be switched back and forth using the minus (-) button as shown:


    Alternatively, it may also look as such if the minus button is too out of place :



    Now, for how the item recipes will look like, it'll be able to show the same kind of recipe tree as the one within the Shop window's bigger black box, but in a more compressed way.
    Plus, it could show the amount of gold the item costs, and when there's a recipe within a recipe, the items from that sub-recipe would be stacked under it as shown :



    It'll allow a certain compression within that bar, while still showing the amount of gold required for it. And that's the goal of this suggestion.

    Be advised I will only reply to constructive criticisms within this thread, but that means all criticism, even the negative ones.
