Sorting: Have a Checkmark for Gender

Recommended Posts

Right now there's checkmarks for:

Reverse Sort

Place Eggs and Unfrozen Hatchlings on top

 

I sort by breed, and I can't stand that it sorts by only age within the breed. I'd rather have the option to sort by sex/gender within the breed, especially with the breeds where the male and female are different. I'm having to custom sort right now which is a pain honestly, since new additions just stay on top until I move them instead of automatically sort.

 

Either default for sex/gender and then age within the breed, or give a checkmark option please?

 

It's perhaps the issue that TJ doesn't want to use the term Sort by sex (since that's more accurate) but Sort by gender might be okay?

I'd love this.

 

I sort mine so that any dragons with dimorphism are distinct by male/female and I use custom manual sort to get them where I want them.  It'd be nice to have a filter like the eggs/hatchlings on top

I also like the idea of this, but what gender would come first in the sorting?

It seems to me that, in the absence of more elaborate search functions/filters, this could make it at least a bit easier to find a specific dragon on your scroll or just check if you have something. It would be very useful, for example, when I need to decide if I should influence an egg to be female or male and want to know how many CBs of each gender I already have. So while I can do without this option, I think I'd use it if it was available. I know one can always create groups to find things faster, but... well, these are not mutually exclusive alternatives.

 

And ladies first for once! 😸 We already have the encyclopedia that shows only males on the main page, in lineages males are on top and on the view page father is listed first, etc.

F. Alphabetical, you know ! (I run across this with my database a lot and actually it annoys me at times - but...)

I was thinking female first as well, but I just wanted to see other opponions first

I'd prefer male then female since that's how i sort my scroll (and if it was female first i wouldn't use it anyway, but I'm sure the reverse is true for others!), but I think it wouldn't be too hard to offer both options, you know?  That way people can sort by gender however they prefer.

I support this suggestion. It would be especially helpful with the pink dragons when it comes time to influence.

Support.

 

It would be more consistent if males sorted first. They appear on top in lineages, the Encyclopedia seems to show male sprites by default, etc.

 

It's not a huge deal to me either way, but it would make more sense from a UX perspective to sort the males first.

I'd prefer males on top, for consistency, but just to be able to sort by sex would be good.

What I've done is made 2 groups--one with all my males and one with all my females and they're labeled "BSA: Influence--[gender]".  Then, when I need to influence, I just go to the correct group and sort by available for BSA.  You could try that sort of thing in the meantime/if nothing comes of this suggestion!

I have a BSA group which is sorted by my scroll default, which is sorted by gender (manually, by me.) It does work. And as I have a manual sort anyway, no HUGE extra work.

Oh indeed! This would be nice. I guess the purpose of the "sort by gender" checkbox would be to make sorting easier, so why not leave the choice to the player.

 

(By the way, some encyclopedia entries show the female sprite first so it isn't that consistent even now.)

 

One thing that came to my mind is this suggestion that I managed to find:

 

I don't know, but maybe it would be an even bigger improvement if these ideas could be combined somehow? Like, if you could select, for example, to primarily sort your dragons by breed, then gender (with two options, females first or males first). Or vice versa: first by gender, then by breed.

Yes - that works in Excel - where my database is. I'm sure it's within TJ's capabilities !
