Description of the Feature:
For plugin parameter that should represent icon indexes I'd like to suggest adding a new type @type icon or @type iconIndex that should basically convert back to a number.
If this is already possible and I just didn't find the right @type for this, please tell me! Would also be nice in MV, but I put it into the MZ suggestions as it is the newest Maker. Also "@type balloon" would be nice aswell and may has some use cases, but I keep my suggestion to "@type icon" as icons are more common within plugin parameters.

Mockups:
Instead of this:

I'd like it to pop up the icon select window.

Why is this feature good?
This feature saves time, because you do not need to do the following steps:
- Go back into the database
- Open any tab that has icons
- Open the icon selection
- Select the icon you want

- Remember the number
- Go back into the plugin manager
- Enter the number

I'd use it.

Just like how they let you select an animation in the skill tab instead of a drop down.

Visual is so much better.

I wanted this too. They already have ones for animations and states, so why not icons?

Yea, there is already a right-click option ("Insert Icon Index" in MZ, "Iconset Viewer" in MV) to insert an icon index into a parameter field, but it'd be nice to have a dedicated type for ease of use~

@caethyril Oh, thanks for telling me! I've never thought about right clicking in the parameters. That already saves me so much time. I just have to remember, that it seems to only work in the text tab, not the number tab.

But now knowing that, I am pretty sure, that this topic will be rejected, as it basically already works.

2021? I still wonder if people still doing MV than MZ more
Seeing a lot more active Ace topics recently, is it making a comeback? :o

As soon as I'm able to get out of bed I'm probably gonna go so hyper from being too cooped up, and burn myself out into another awful flare. lol
It makes me feel proud whenever an RM game does well. Even though I had nothing to do with it.
