Wholesalers’ warehouses have shelves with signs of their contents.
By clicking on ALT, we obtain the unit price of each product on each shelf.
Player warehouses have much more limited information, and that’s a real problem.
First, unlike wholesalers, there is no sign indicating what is on a shelf.
In addition, deliveries from import-export companies are placed on the shelves according to the space available.
With 60 slots available per shelf, some of them can hold many different types of products.
The ALT key will not be of any use here because it only shows the number of occupied slots. No information on the nature of the products or the quantity of each box.
Personally, I decided to have one warehouse per product family: food, clothing, etc.
Because it’s the only way I’ve found so far not to go crazy.
But at first, it’s not possible, because having several warehouses means human and financial resources that we don’t yet have.
Try to find in a warehouse of 20 shelves where donuts, cupcakes, coffee, women’s clothes, gifts, papers, etc. are stored.
It would be useful to make the ALT key more practical by displaying the number of boxes and their contents on each shelf (ex: 20 donuts, 17 cupcakes, 13 gifts, etc.).
Another feature could be very valuable: allowing the player to decide for each shelf the type of products that can be stored there. Thus, we can have shelves reserved for donuts, coffee, modern men’s clothing, gifts, etc.
I’m having the same issues and thoughts about shelves (either warehouses or stores ones).
I’d love to have the option to dedicate shelves to specific products, either in warehouses or stores.
I’m currently playing my first playthrough, with only one warehouse, and one thing I find difficult, is that every item is listed on a single list in the warehouse’s stock overview, which can sometimes be confusing, especially when checking items that need to be ordered (and we can’t sort the list).
I’d really love to have items sorted and displayed in different sheets (ala Excel) : we’d have the “Food” sheet, the “Gifts” sheet, etc … and so on.
I’d like this too especially since sometimes I mistakenly buy furniture so I end up putting it in the trunk of my car rather than the warehouse for this reason. I wouldn’t be able to find it in all the jumble but I would if it was all labeled nice and neatly. Then I could put all the extra furniture in a shelf to be used later in another business rather than hope I remember I have it in the trunk/boot of my car.
