Going along with the rest of my other UI revamps, this proposal addresses the in-game shopper catalog system.

Currently, the vend catalog is only accessible with a consumable item. Although I understand the need to create more zeny sinks, this is not a good way to go about doing it (especially with player-made features like Ragial existing). Therefore, I propose changing that so that the feature is accessible from the game's UI instead, similarly to how one accesses their inventory (with a hotkey and/or command). Since the vend catalog parses through vends on a map, the feature would be more practical as a UI feature since all players would have to do is move to different maps to view all available vends.

For the window itself, I simply made it cohesive with the rest of my UI design since the overall function of it doesn't really need to be changed. Although it could made MUCH better if the navigation system was linked to the window so players could double-click on the shop and navigate their way to the shop.

EDIT: Changed colors around to look more appealing according to iRO RaidCall feedback.

It probably still wouldn't ween me off of Ragial, but it'd be better than what it is now at least. That being said, if it includes that navigation bit I might be more inclined to use it. :T

It's better for those whose computers can't handle opening a browser and RO at the same time.

Not everyone can afford to buy a new computer every so often.

a machine that can't even keep one browser window open while simultaneously running a 15 year old game would likely be older than some of the current playerbase. this isn't every so often at this point, this is like decade+ between purchases. it's time for a new pc ><

The day kRO changes the vend catalog to be a UI feature instead of a consumable item is the day I wear a hot pink t-shirt and sing "Barbie Girl" in public.

To be fair, I think I'd like this option better when I'm playing in full-screen, so there could be a few reasons. Yes, alt-tabbing is a hassle. Especially when I forget the coordinates of the shop xD

Or they could use the link feature of the navigation system more.
