I am wanting to include a shop that limits the number of a particular rare item that can be bought, and have searched on Google from here to Timbuktu for a plugin that does this, but no dice. I saw several VX Ace scripts that did it, but I am using MV, not VX Ace. I also saw Tsukihime was making one for MV, but abandoned it, never to see the light of day. Can someone please make this necessity of a plugin for not just me, but for the community?

I've made a separate shop plugin that deals with stocks for my current project, but it's a bit different than what you're asking. Based on that, I have some idea on how to do it and I'm definitely planning to do this later for potential use in future projects. Yet that might take me some time as I'm prioritising the completion of my project.

@TWings How much different are we talking about?

Well, for starters it's a mess, since it's not meant to be used outside of my project yet. :kaoback:
Most of the paramaters are coded in the scripts, it would also not work without some specific settings on Yanfly's item categories plugin.
It doesn't make any change to the game usual shop, as it's a separate one meant to simulate a trade system (so stocks and prices fluctuations).
What you're looking for is "simpler" I believe. It could be done by adding some quantity data parameter (either with a user defined object, or note tag), and rewrite some parts of the shop system.

@TWings The price fluctuation thing sounds interesting- I could see it where said rare item may appear cheaper or more expensive after every battle at random.

Glad to see you're back! I was wondering what you've become! It's been a while since we spoke to each other!

I know this was months ago, but I don't completely understand the lunatic states program (how you set it up). I just want to apply a stone state (and death) to a character after x amount of time. Can you show me an example of how to set it up?
