Cancel does not seem to close the scene when selected. No other issues with it so far!

Could you add a level interger shown somewhere in the pet withdrawal scene

What do you mean by "interger"
You can see the level of the actor that has been deposited if you select details after selecting the actor you want to withdraw. This image is after you select which actor to withdraw, before selecting withdraw a second time:

I couldn't figure out the best way to show the details so I made a separate window for it.

I have two suggestions to improve your Monster Storage box:
1. Add a "party lock" function. The way it would work is that a note tag could be used for actors that are not supposed to go into the storage box and always stay in the party.

2. Add a delete function where an actor can be permanently removed from the party.

Good suggestions fire, I am sure I can update it with those options.

This is the only Monster box storage plugin I could find and it seems to still work with my most up to date version of MV.

This is indeed a plugin with a lot of potential!

If you do decide to pick it up again, here are a few suggestions to make it even better:
  • Open up the variables so you can change them from the plugin menu. Window widths/heights, how many rows are displayed, the text used (Withdraw, Deposit, Details, etc.)
  • Make the detail box always visible and have it display the info of the currently selected character. That way you don't have to memorize what characters look like. It also makes it easier for Pokemon style games, which could have characters that look the same.
  • A plugin command that allows you to add characters from an event. Could be useful for when you have a full party and want to send a newly acquired party member to this storage box (think Pokemon PC storage boxes).

Not sure if I'm allowed to post on threads this old but I was wondering if anyone would know how to manually add characters to the deposit box through events? Like after battle instead of going straight into the party they go into the box instead. I think the original creator has dropped this plugin but I'm hopeful someone might now how to manually script something like that?

I tried a script call in game
if($gameParty.members().length > 1){
$gameSystem.depositedActors.push($gameParty.members()[this._actorWindow.index()]._actorId)
$gameParty.removeActor($gameParty.members()[this._actorWindow.index()]._actorId);

but it comes up with nothing but an error. I know nothing about scripting but I feel like this line in particular might be a key way to pull off "depositing" and actor via events?

Either way hopefully someone comes up with something because this plugin really has a lot of potential.

I tried it out. Let the characters go directly to the storage box. You can use the script code $gameSystem.depositedActors.push(X);
X is the number of the role in the database. This plugin is really great, but unfortunately it is not perfect. I really hope someone can improve it.

Ah that seemed to work perfectly! Thanks so much for the help and yeah I wish someone or the creator would give this plugin another look.

I'm not sure if this plugin will ever be updated, which is a shame because it's exactly what I need for my game ;_;
I'll ask around and see if I can get something similar to work with.

It's (almost) perfect plugin. Just wish there was an ability to restrict certain actors from being put into the box. Is there anything else like it?

Actually, I'm using Hime's PartyMember plugin to lock the actors I don't want moved manually, the only downside is Hime's plugin requires it to have been on from the start of the save file creation, so you'd have to start over any already saved files. https://himeworks.com/2016/02/party-manager-mv/

Anyone know if there is a way to make it so that the player can't leave the storage menu with more than X number of Actors withdrawn?
