[plugin] Inventory Aid

  • Inventory Aid Plugin

    Inventory Aid” is a plugin for Construct 2 designed to help with the creation of typical game inventories, the likes of which can be most prominently found in RPGs and related genres. Usually those inventories are grid-based, holding items in each cell.

    While this plugin was designed to be easy to use, a basic understanding of Construct 2 is definitely required beforehand. Still I would probably recommend “Inventory Aid” the most to those considering themselves slightly advanced users already holding a license.

    Thanks for checking out the plugin. Any feedback is welcome as always!

  • This seems like a really helpful plugin. I'm sure many people will get some great use out of this.

  • Thanks to everyone who supported this plugin so far!

    I know I'm way behind schedule, nevertheless here is finally the first small update.

    New in version 0.72:

    • Added property "Resize sprites" which determines whether or not to resize bound sprites to the cell width and height of the item.
    • Added a frame parameter to the "Bind object to item"-action which lets you set the initial frame of a bound sprite.
    • Fixed the "On created"-condition not triggering for bound item objects.
    • Fixed an issue with "Subtract item at" where the bound count object wasn't actually impacted.

    Special shout-out goes to Pete Nolan! Thank you for your feedback!

  • Here is a tiny but useful update.

    New in version 0.73:

    • Added an animation parameter to the "Bind object to item"-action which lets you set the animation of a bound sprite.
  • Why not put it on the Scirra store? It's a win/win!

    That's also where I manage all my premium plugins and resources for Construct.

    (You had to know you were gonna get this question =D )

    Outside of that. Man, this looks like it can save a lot of headaches! Or at the very least at a lot of time...

    I hope a 'take all' button and 'use item' ends up as easy as it seems.

    And that the included save system isn't too difficult to dive into, that's a critical feature!

    I am considering this option, but only once the plugin has reached version 1.0. At the moment it's sort of an "early access" kind of deal.

    I should probably cover some of the things you mention in a new plugin video.

  • I should probably cover some of the things you mention in a new plugin video.

    That'd be awesome! Your first two plugin videos seemed really helpful.

    Those things were the first things that came to mind of what I want with any inventory system.

    I'm planning on picking up the plugin soon.

  • Another update is available now.

  • The new update introduces pools, which are essentially lists of items that can be used to generate randomized loot from pre-defined groups.

    New in version 0.81:
