[Suggestion] Make the distance for Trekker part of the Components

One of the issues for the current event is that the 8kms appears at the top of the screen for a Capsule without indicating the real value that the capsule will take. This will become more of a problem if 'rare' Capsules are sold in the store with a distance reduction factor.

So here's my suggestion for how to adjust the Capsule UI with a distance component.

    Alternatively, just change the distance on top dynamically when scrolling through the programs or show it on the bottom carousel.

    I think the distance displayed on the top is hard-coded in there as a string. It should also reflect whenever there's special events that reduce the distance required.

    Honestly, what is supposed to be conveyed with the 6 pods on the program screen? Why not have the icons from the carousel as the static images on the 6 pods. (Obviously lockers and media won't be used. You can then display the distance needed either as a pod or whenever.)

  • I assume it's so that they can have 6 components for a given program. But they may want programs like the Jarvis that will take multiple types from the same category, so they're staying open. If they accept a max of 5 different item types, then using one for showing the distance would be simple.
