Exchange Shops

Exchange Shops -

Flying Lab Software has posted a dev journal which takes a look at the recently implemented Exchange shops.

I’m Anna Murchison, one of the Technical Content Designers in the content department at Flying Lab. I like to think of myself as the department’s Swiss Army knife—one day I might be working on upcoming mission content, and the next I’ll be working on hooking up animations to NPCs in towns. One of my bigger tasks this milestone was implementing a new interface for those times when you want to trade in one or more items in exchange for one or more other items. It’s called the “Exchange Shop.”

The Exchange Shop is a new and simpler way to handle those ever-popular turn-in missions. Turning in Pennants or Marks of Victory used to involve looking through many different missions and keeping track of what mission offered which kind of reward. For example, you might have five Commendations for Courage, but the only way to find out what you might get in exchange for those commendations entailed accepting a mission, which could cause problems if your mission list was full and was a little laborious—a “shopping” experience that was certainly less than ideal. But with the new Exchange Shops, finding items that you really want will be more transparent, and much less of a chore.
