[dev1251] Additional Market Features

* This feature, planned for patch 1.20, is still in development, and therefore subject to change.

  • New market features will be introduced in patch 1.20.
    • Players will now be able to purchase items directly from the Item Search window.
      Steps:
      1. Search for an item, and then select one of the retainers selling that item.
      2. Enter the desired amount and select Accept to purchase the items.
        Purchasing items directly from the Item Search window will incur a 5% surcharge. This surcharge will never exceed 4,000 gil.
    • Transaction History
      This feature will allow players to view their last twenty transactions.
      * Transaction History will be reset by maintenance.
    • Future Expansion of Market Features
      1. Viewing Details of Searched Items
        Verifying item quality (whether HQ or NQ) and details regarding materia-crafted items through the Item Search is not currently possible, but we plan to alleviate this some time after patch 1.20b.
      2. Searching by Item Name
        This specific feature is not yet available, but current plans are to have it ready for patch 1.21.
