Hi all, small update of something I was debating with myself before release but after release I got a few requests to change how items were selected, so I have changed that in this version to (hopefully) be easier to set up recipes. Existing recipes will need to be updated for the new format though. Also fixed a bug so that recipes no longer require toast SE's if using toast manager.

Version 1.0.1:
- Made it easier to select items/armors/weapons for crafting recipes
- Fixed crash if recipe had no toast SE but Toast Manager was imported

I love it, it easy to use, practical, it have everything that more than one needs for their RPG Game.

It works perfect with Visustella Plugins.

You can have multiples scenes, one for Alchemy, other for Smith, other for Cooking, having or not the profession plugin of Casper, only on profession definition inside the plugin parameter when you are making the recipe, there you put the name of the "type scene" like Smith, Cooking, or anything else.

It have also plugin commands for making this easy, if you want to put this menu inside the visustella menu, in the main menu core, inside of command window list, there you found the common event, turning on true in the option JS: Enable. Make a Common event with the plugin command of this crafting plugin to show the recipe type (by a profesion or all) and there you have the menu in the visustella menu.

It's a great and awesome plugin.

Thanks for the great plugin. Especially for the possibility of fail products and success products. I hadn't thought of that yet and it now opens up completely new possibilities. A little question: is it possible to use only the bar for the progress display without the percentage display?

I discovered some small thing (maybe I forgot something - then I´m sorry for posting)
Craft.png
I set up 2 swords for crafting. (Dont mind the icon, description and things like that - its only for testing). The second sword (D) needs two swords (E) to craft. If I first make sword (E) twice, I can switch to sword (D) and craft it too, but the color stays gray. It would be nice if the color changes to white as soon as the requirements are met. (The color changes of course when you close the menu and open it again).

@Zaven thanks for bringing this to my attention, I have made the list window always refresh after craft to fix the issue. I also added the option to show/hide the progress percentage text as requested.

Version 1.0.2:
- Added option to hide the percentage text on the progress window
- Made the recipe list refresh after every craft

Would it be possible to include the use of gold in the plugin? That would be great if you wanted to implement crafting into the game as a shop.

@Zaven I will look into adding gold as an ingredient/product. It is possible of course, but probably not something I can implement quickly.

I have one more request if you don't mind? Would it be possible to show the currently available number behind the ingredients, as in the picture? And thanks again for your great plugins. I really love them.

@Zaven Thanks for the suggestions, I agree those would be cool features and I have added them to my to-do list tracker. I will implement them when I have some time, I have been a bit busy lately with making demos for my plugins (and of course working on new plugins).

@Logica Glad you find it useful, thanks for the support :kaothx:

@Zaven Pinging you to let you know that I have updated this plugin today for one of your requested features (showing how many items the player currently has for ingredients). I am still going to be adding gold for crafting as a feature but didn't have time to get that in today.

Update 1.0.3:
- Added option to show the current supply of ingredients in craft window

I have also added a demo for this plugin in case anyone was confused on how to use it. You can play the demo in-browser or download it and open it in editor to see how things were done on the plugin's main page on my website: https://www.caspergaming.com/plugins/cgmz/crafting/

Thank you for the update and for letting me know. That's great. About the gold: It would still be a great feature and I'll be sure to use it when it becomes available later. But right now it works just fine with tools that you just have to buy beforehand.

It's me again with a suggestion. I don't know if it's even that easy as it affects both the crafting and the professions plugin. But it would be nice if you could see during the crafting process how many exp are missing until the next professions level. (something like in the attached picture). Of course, that would only make sense for those who use both plugins.

@Zaven Thanks for the suggestion, I don't think it would be too difficult to add, but to me in the image it looks a bit weird since it looks like you have 9/50 exp to go until you hit the level requirement, it might be confusing there. I could add another line for experience to next level.

Yes, the picture was only meant to be an example of what I mean. English is not my main language and I have to use google translate a lot. (Reading is easy, but writing - not really). Hence the picture. It doesn't have to look like the picture. An extra line for the experience up to the next level sounds really good.

I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
Took the kids to a corn maze. They gave us a map and had lights at certain points in the maze. Not overwhelming... or underwhelming... just... whelming.
Okay, vacuuming fruit flies out of the air is surprisingly effective.
Finally finished my menu redesign after like a month of coding! I hate designing menus... Good news though - I thought of a complete redesign for it now, so yay...
Still no scam calls all day... also I got a quick gig designing a mascot drawing for a small business, so I might actually make some green of my own after all. That would be a perfect job for me, since I love art and digital design.
