You must select the "Sell Item" action on these vendor offer purchase items to specify a sell price for the items. The Sell window will display the offer price as the default price.

Player Associations:

With the remote player association access devices you can perform all guild functions except creation and leadership transfer; you no longer have to be near the other player to do these functions. To sponsor someone, the player has to be online. To transfer leadership, you still have to be within 20 meters of each other

When examined, it will give information about your player association
When it is destroyed, the guild leader has the option to create a new one
Player association terminals no longer spawn in player association halls or the Mustafarian bunker
Player association leaders are able to set permissions on any member whether they are online or not
Added functionality for guild screen to destroy and allow new leaders to create one
Players can filter how you want to show your guild member names
By Permissions
By Titles
By Name (you input the name you are looking for
Added several new commands
-guildShowAlpha (shows member names in alphabetical order)
-guildShowTitle (shows all titles so you can search for member by title)
-guildShowPermission (shows all permissions so you can search by permissions)
-guildShowName (gives an input box to allow for searching through guild member names by what you type in)
-guildInfo (shows the guild info, same function that is on terminal)
-guildSponsor (allows you to sponsor someone, same functionality as on the terminal)
-guildChangeName (allows you to change the guild's name, same functionality as on terminal)
-guildDisband (allows you to disband the guild, same functionality as on terminal)
/guildShow will still display the list of filters you can use
Also added /guildShow to take arguments as an alternative to using the full slash command; for example, /guildShow alpha will show by alphabet
Player association UIs only allow one UI at a time; this is to fix potential errors with having multiple UIs out at once
New cartridges crafted by structure traders can be used to change your Player Associations Data-Screens. Cartridges are loaded by the player association leader via the radial menu while it is in their inventory
Changed Guild Manipulation windows to close if a new window is requested via the remote device or slash command. For example, if you are giving permission to member A and then decide you want to sponsor someone, you can just type /guildSponsor and the old permissions UI will close and the sponsor UI will open

looks like they're taking their time with this one! I'm glad though. I cannot wait to get a better pair of gloves (currently have the neat microsensory bossk awarded gloves), the crafted ones will be better. (I'm a Trandoshan, so this is GREAT!) also i'll be able to equip some boots.
