As mentioned previously on this forum, we're undertaking some work right now to better organize the "categories" we assign different items to in the Encyclopedia/Inventory/Auctions etc.
I wanted to give the developer community a bit of a headsup on these changes before we make them, so you know what to expect.
In short, one week from now, on Friday December 7th, we will be:
* Changing some category identifiers, and adding some new ones
* Changing the categories that some items are filed under.
* Merging the slightly different categories used in inventory vs. auctions, so that everything is consistent.
While I can't provide you with a full list of all the changes that will happen, the new list of categories will be:
Most of these should be self-explanatory. "basic_resource
" will be items that you can get directly from the world (cherries, allspice, sparkly etc) while "advanced_resource
" will be items which are made from other resources, and can themselves be used for other things (so, ingots, barnacle talc etc)
There will probably be other changes in future to the categories as we continue to expand the world, but we will try our best not to be too haphazard about them.
If you have any questions about these changes, please chime in here.
