    In my in-progress post apocalyptic game, there is currently around 110-120 food/drink items, around 50 medical items/drugs/alcohol, around 50 ammunition types (not including dud rounds, new ammo boxes, and old ammo boxes for all of these), and around 120 junk items for selling for a rough estimate. I haven't included my armor or weapon count because those are fairly incomplete.

    @RuneKingThor Mainly by caliber (which affects damage) and the amount of ammunition they hold, but since I'm using a DnD inspired system, also stuff like different attack bonuses, effects that can apply with DC checks, critical threat range, and bonus damage.

    @Solr As of right now, some spells will be hidden and gained via quests. Otherwise you will be able to buy them with job points as you gain levels and combat enemies.

    @Kes It shouldn't be too bad, not everyone can can get every spell. UI will be a pretty big deal to make sure menus aren't tedious.
    For those with up to 9 elements of magic; how do you structure your database. By element? Or by what is offensive vs supportive spells?

    I've never tried to plan out every skill in my game before I start creating stuff. Since the location in the database's list doesn't affect anything except the order they're listed in the skills page, it suffices for me to put them in the order they're learned.

    I do mine by element and then by the power of each spell as it increases in the list. Makes it neater in the long run for me, but also means you have to make all your skills either in advance or leave blank spaces in case you decide to add extra spells later on for that element. I chose to go ahead and create all my spells/attacks at the start.

    I guess I have no idea how to properly upload a custom font lmao. The menu fonts are too damn small.

    @Nenen I am using RMMV. I got some Yanfly plugins im wondering if I missed some code to change the size somewhere.

    Thats pretty impressive, but how different is each mechanically?

    Its a pretty wide variety of stats and effects... you have the general boring stuff where its just +attributes, but then you also have some more interesting effects like Melee attacks can hit up to +4 times, and it stacks for dual wielders. Magic Damage/Healing can hit up to +4 times for no extra MP cost. Pretty much if there is a way to change in in the database there is a Prefix for it :D

    I also have some stuff I had to make specific bits of code changes for in order for it to work like custom HP/MP regen values NOT associated with the databases HP Regen/MP Regen... chance to bypass enemy status effect immunities. For (most) effects there are 5 ranks to them, -100% effect and +25/50/75/100% effect. The -100% effect is the "broken" version of the effect, so an unlucky roll when loot is determined :p
    Man I am learning I am bad at naming armor lmao.

    Same. I had to resort to using a fantasy name generator (though I ended up using names from there for weapons and stuck with bronze / iron / whatever other material in armour names).

    It might be a little bit boring and tedious, but building that database of armor, items, weapons and skills are super important.

    Fair enough Froggo, it is something that comes with practice.

    Mapping is more tedious than databasing. In databasing, at least you should have a reason why you put a certain number in a database and why this or that database of the item exists.

    In mapping though, you put a transfer player event on a map. Then you do the same in the other map so both maps are interconnected. Do it on all maps. It's mindless and boring. I wish there was a function to simplify this process.

    I think you could just make a common event to take care of most of that.

    lmfao I feel that. I was tempted a couple of times last night. I am making a tactical RPG so smaller numbers feel better in my opinion. I have no idea how im going to test the level 50 cap yet.
    Ahuramazda
    Ahuramazda
    Oh... jeez. Tactical games are a lot harder to balance due to low numbers and just how much different they are compared to normal RPG style. I do not want to have the headache you are going for when the time does finally come for super-solid testing. All I will say is good luck!

    Yeah its sadly a big challenge... im probably just going to be stuck with making tiers of enemies to determine what brackets of levels you will fight them in.

You know your room is too tiny for how much stuff you have when it gives you literal insomnia. I just cleared a bunch of stuff out and man it feels good!
