Ever found yourself over encumbered with materials that you saved just for smithing? Hate making trips to where you've stashed them; or having to flick in and out of menus to ask the smith if your could buy some? And then finding that they've run out...

What if you could select the item that you want to smith, and have the menu detect what you're missing, and bring up a confirmation window to buy all the necessary items. Then having the selection of "yes" to add them to your inventory (removing the gold of course), refreshing the smithing window (as you may have noticed, adding materials with console commands in the smithing menu will not make them use-able until something else has been created, or the menu exited) and then leaving you back at the smithing screen with your item selected and ready to smith.

I think this would be a great way to essentially add a "shopping cart" quick function for the necessary materials for anything you want to smith. And it would be fine if it ran from the merchant's chest, rather than an infinite supply. Although that might be a good optional patch too.

I've just thought this would be a great thing to have for trying out modded armour before deciding on it (and returning to a previous save), as I got sick of entering console commands, or having a crap-load of materials on hand to smith everything I'd added to the game.
