Is there a chance we could get some kind of search feature that finds similar item icons? I have to admit that the only likely purpose for this would be to make searching for lockstyle gear simpler, so I can't argue that it's anything crucial, but it would be cool if it's not much work.

Thinkin' changing the Legion section to Ambuscade/Legion or just giving Ambuscade it's own section might not be a bad idea, especially as people begin to branch out of using a single thread for all Ambuscade findings and strategies.

A semi-reliable way to do this would to be to view thumbnails of a desired item on bgwiki. for instance, here is the ayanmo corazza thumbnail link: https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/File:Ayanmo_Corazza_icon.png

it lists items with duplicate thumbnails:

Quote:
The following 3 files are duplicates of this file (more details):

File:Enif Corazza icon.png
File:Homam Corazza icon.png
File:Murzim Corazza icon.png

This wont work for +1 because whitebox.

The equipment search forum is pretty handy for some specifics, but there's a little oddity - it's possible to select certain skill types in a drop-down menu, like <weapon type> skill or <magic type> skill, and event the bard-specific ones, but there's no Blue Magic, Geomancy or Handbell skill in that menu - any plans to add those, or is the terminology to inconsistent to be able to add them properly?

Problem here, unfortunately, is that the icon database seems to apply a new copy to each item. For example; Judge's Helm and Darksteel Armet. While they look different, they use the same icon.

Judge's Helm

Darksteel Armet

Entirely silly and appendix-like, but it'd be nice if there was some no-bump option for replying in threads so that they don't constantly get brought up to the 'Latest Forum Topics' every time we want to make a witty one-liner about shout advertisements, or a snarky comment.

There are some things which just aren't worth bringing to anyone's attention except those who are already involved in the conversation.

I appreciate this is likely more work than it's worth.

Not sure if it was suggested or not but can there be an indicator for when a message is read in the inbox?

As far as I can tell, power search with multiple jobs selected only filters for items that can be worn by any job selected. Is there currently a way to search for gear that can be worn by all jobs selected? If not, could we get one?

Power search actually needs a pretty thorough overhaul. I'll stick this on the list of things to add to it.

The feature I always wanted for search is the ability to sort by Item ID. Just a controved example... If I search for burtgang and sort by ilvl desc, the top 4 (in this order) are 119, 119 II, 119 III, Level 75 -1.

An "Adoulin Era" checkbox would be nice too (which would be a simple itemID > [last_pre_adoulin_item's id]. iLVL doesn't work with accessories, of course.

I agree with Omnys, plus the "ilvl" flag, while very useful, doesn't work 100% because some items are incorrectly listed as ilevel 255 in the database instead of 119.

Item IDs aren't sorted in any particular order, so this won't work.

255 ilvl items should be easily fixed, those iLvl pieces are actually listed as 375 (119 + 256) in the dats. BGwiki already has them correct, although a min/max iLvl field might not be bad.

There's a post-import script that's supposed to fix that. I've just run it manually, so once the caches on items start expiring they should show correctly.
