Now that there area number of new scopes added to the game, some serving similar roles to others just with different names, I think a scope style feature would help in reducing UI clutter and simplifying scope selection. What I mean is, instead of listing all available scopes, listing the different zooms (1x, 1.5x, 2x, and 4x). Then, when selecting a zoom, list available types of optics in that range in a separate window or interface. That way, it also leaves room to add more varieties of scopes in the future without taking more space in the UI.
No, I understand what he meant. He wants there to literally be only options for "1x, 2x, etc etc" under scope selection. Then when you choose one of those it will then give you options... Doing it that way would keep the scopes list from taking up an entire page in the menu. Not a bad idea...but perhaps only necessary for 1x, and 4x
