Bug Description

In the new amazing interactive ware help, there could be one more enhancement:

The similar wares, that have a sorting (e.g. all weapons and armour, ration/snack/meal) could be shown in the right order. In my opinion, the most intuitive order would be to show the smallest one (e.g. ration) above, thereunder the second-smallest (e.g. snack) etc. and the biggest item (e.g. meal) at the bottom. This would be a good display especially because also the enhanced buildings are shown in a vertical order with the smallest above.

The order should be determined by the using of the wares. For example, an Atlantean soldier who is trained in a Dungeon is trained to attack level 1 with a steel trident, to attack level 2 with a double trident, to attack level 3 with a heavy double trident (information is in the conf-file of the building dungeon).

Such an ordering is implemented ingame and defined in the tribe conf file; this one could be used for clever ordering.

Such an ordering for wares isn't possible at the moment, because we do not read the conf files directly anymore. The currently used binary 'wl_map_object_info' creates json files which do not give any of the mentioned information. E.g it is not possible to have a category of a ware: If it is a ware for military (spear, trident, armor, ...), food (bread, meal, beer, wine, ...), buildings (log, stone, ...).

So to fix this we need more analyzes in wl_map_object_info and store more information in the created json files.

I am not sure if this is worth the work, since such information is available in the game help now.
