Is it possible to make equipment also act as items that could be used in battle like in some final fantasy games?

Yes, but how you want it to work depends on whether or not you want to use plugins:

No-plugin approach: Equipped items allow the player to use a specific skill (added to their skill list). So the "Fire Rod" would give the player a skill called "Fire Rod" but it'd have to be selected from their skills/spells/whatever menu rather than the item menu.

Plugin approach: Not sure if a plugin exists for the vintage (FF1/FF4/FF6 approach--select item from equipped items, use for effect) but any plugin that replaces the basic attack and/or adds an effect (unleash) to basic attack can be used for something like this. This is the approach I'm using in my game just because I think it makes more sense than flipping to the item menu just to use your Fire Rod properly.

So Deltarune Chapter 2 is supposed to release today... if it's out already, has anyone played it? And I can't because I have a stinking Mac and not a Windows PC.
I forgot that forums have profile walls that you can post or comment on, guess I found a new platform to specifically rant about game-related deranged thought or problems that I have. Salut mes amis!
I couldn't help myself, so I edited the tiles a bit and made a birdhouse :LZSsmile: I hope I will finish the town today!Screenshot 2021-09-17 134349.png
How do I find the threads I have watched? It's been so long I've forgotten :kaoswt:
So far, this is how the wall tileset its looking in-editor. :kaoswt2:
