Show "learned" COR dice as green on the AHFollow

In the magic section of the AH, one of the features I've always enjoyed is being on any job and having my learned spells show as green. And if I'm on a specific job and there's a spell I don't know that the job is at the required level to learn, it shows up as yellow. This has allowed me to keep up to date on spells as Abyssea has thrown them at my many level 90 jobs.

For some reason, however, this doesn't apply to COR dice. I have to actually open up my JA menu and look at them. It doesn't help that the Phantom Roll name doesn't necessarily match the dice name either, so if I'm not quite sure what something is, I have to look it up. (That hindered me more leveling COR than it has now that I've hit 90.)

The lack of colors is probably since they are considered JAs and not spells, but it's still be incredibly useful to have an exception to "learned dice" made on the AH for those job abilities, since it's clear the automated "learned spell" system isn't working.

Automaton attachments would be nice, too.

Fyn beat me to that point, too.

I know I don't have all the auto parts, and part of me's kinda held back because I don't, but for the moment I'd basically have to manually compare to some wiki lists or some such.

I have pretty much every attachment that isn't expensive as ****. So if I see a 7-digit price tag on an attachment on the AH, chances are I don't have it.

That's how I've been determining what I have and what I don't. >_>

The core mechanics of JAs and spells are essentially the same, so there should be no reason to not add them. Especially since they are under the scrolls category.

Those are stackable though. And not listed under the scrolls category.

Attachments are equipment-equivalents, rather then scrolls, and they are turned into something like key items under the automaton menu. That's why I think they never added the green coloring to owned attachments. It's too different from spells and therefor never added it.

Not that I would mind if SE actually added the color coding.

We know it's different, but to imply it's impossible because of that is kinda silly.

It's silly to imply that I implied that it's impossible. It's possible, beyond a doubt.

It's a very, very minor cosmetic issue, that possibly requires an overly big effort to change, or a dev would most likely have done it already.
