The crafting menu has a few features that, when you notice and learn to use them, can be very handy. I think a lot of them could equally well be put to use in the construction menu.
- Put possible constructions on the top, things you can’t build right now at the bottom.
- List in reverse order by difficulty of primary skill.
I didn’t notice this at first, but it is super handy when crafting to train your skills. Also, puts the fanciest and neatest stuff up top. Might be best as a sort option rather than the only display mode, though.
- Add prefixes to 'F’ind dialog.
I didn’t use these when I first started playing, but now I find them indispensable for crafting. I’m sure that they would be similarly useful for the construction menu.
