Hey everyone, we do have plans to label schematics to make it clear whether or not it is already known by your character, but don't have a timeline as to when this change will take place. It's definitely something we want to add to make schematics easier to assess!
I think that's a great idea, but was wondering if they might take it one step further. I don't know about everyone else, but when I start up a few crafter alt I like to hit the GTN and peruse schematics - how about giving the schematics an actual item level, at least for listing purposes? I'd like to know if certain items are level 50 or level 11 without having to examine each one under microscope scrutiny.
Being able to use the X to Y level range listing would then also be handy in this particular category and make it a lot easier than weeding through 130+ pages of schematics looking for something new. It wouldn't hurt if schematics that produced orange gear were also highlighted as such, instead of sharing the same old generic blue of standard prototype goods. It should be doable, augments all start of green, the color of the item they produce as well.
