Upgraded Shop Scene



DetailedShop v1.0

by

Jeremy Cannady


Introduction
This script completely overrides the default scene shop to add more features and graphics.

Features
1. Adds shopkeeper graphics to the shop.
2. Adds background images to the shop.
3. Expands the parameter changes to show all parameters that will change when you equip the weapon/armor.

4. Adds icon select list instead of names.

5. Adds ability to scroll through actors to see what changes might occur. (Actors only appear if they can equip the item)

(please see the screen shots below for examples)


Screenshots

When you start the shop:



When you select buy or sell:

When you select weapon or armors (items is a more basic page):

When you decide to compare the actors:

Only the actors that can equip will show on list:



How to Use

To use this script place this script in your plugins folder and name it DetailedShop.js.

Then use the built in shop processing as normal.

What can go wrong (hey listen!): 

1. You have labeled the picture you want to use as the shop keeper wrong in either the plugin page or file.
1.Fix: Make them the same name.

2.You have chosen to use the default battblebacks but the screen is black.

2.Fix: You did not specify which battleback to use in your map page. Go add one.

3.You get some weird error when you select a certain armor or weapon or even item.

3.Fix: You need to fully fill out each item/weapon/armor creation page.

If you don't have an icon selected that's bad,

If you don't have an armor/weapon type chosen that's bad too.

The game will say exactly this: Oh I see you want to buy this weapon, I don't know what type of weapon this is because you didn't select the weapon type in the creation page.

I'm gonna crash now. Bye yall.

4.If anything else is wrong.

4.Fix: You done goofed son! Tell pappi about it.(send me message)please...

Would it be possible to add a feature to change the shopkeeper mid-game? I'd like to have different shop keepers for different types of stores.

@TheMagicMissle I totally meant that to be in this release I just forgot about it :( but thanks for reminding me! It will be a simple plugin command like changeShopKeeper and then just put the image name afterwards.

Can you add the option to skip the 2nd choice of (weapon/armor/item) and just show everything. I already separate my shops into weapon or armor shops and having this choice is pointless.

It looks absolutely beautiful, but you might want to think about making some modifications to improve usability and ease of obtaining information.  For example:

  • Seeing the items available are at least three clicks deep, and seeing how much ATK a weapon will provide for an actor is at least five clicks deep
  • There is no way (at least from your screens) to see the text list of items available at a shop; you would need to choose each item instead
  • Prices are not displayed with the item icons, and are in a somewhat obscure part of the screen even where they are displayed (also current Gold is not displayed until you're two clicks deep)
  • Menus that could be combined onto one screen are placed on separate screens within the shop, increasing the amount of unintuitive menu navigation
I want to be clear that this is not to criticize your hard work - you have a cool idea and a fantastic start here.  Just to suggest that you think about how players will use such a shop scene, and keep that in the forefront of your mind as you improve this nifty plugin.

I posted before I read about changing shopkeep image. I'll follow this thread and check for updates when you allow that option. Awesome job.

Edit: This doesn't seem to work with 1280x720 resolution. I adjust the Y coords for the image, but it cuts off like this....

Found a bug: When you first select an item to buy its default value is 1, if you press purchase you can purchase that item without needing the gold. This is a really awesome plugin though! :)

Edited to allow manual shopkeeper images, just put the plugin command :    changeShopPicture newname.png before you call the shop processing.

I will be looking at other issues but thought I would at least put this out there.

This is a great concept, and will be a very popular plugin once you iron out the bugs.  Keep at it :)

Just loaded it into my project. i like how it handles weapons and armors, but the item scene isn't working for me.

only one item is ever described even though i can select and purchase the other items. when i select the icons the description stays locked.

And also can the icon list scroll back and forth to allow more stock?

No sign of the shopkeeper for me regardless of what settings I have in the X and Y adjusts and it seems like this script will allow you to purchase items even if you don't have any gold.

I had 0G and managed to buy 9 magic waters one-by-one.

I really like this idea though, and it looks great.
