    Here's my second plugin. It's a modified version of the one I'm using in Galdmaril. I hope some of you will have use for it.

    Plugin
    TWings_Forge v1.11

    Author
    TWings

    Introduction / Features
    This plugin is part of a Suikoden features plugins series and works similarly to the blacksmith system.
    For those not familiar with it, it's a feature designed to upgrade equiped weapons instead of simply buying new ones.

    So what does this plugins do ?
    It seals weapons (you can't unequip weapons anymore).
    It allows you to open a Forge Shop window menu where you can upgrade your equiped weapons.
    You are free to define as many weapons levels as you wish and you can restrict the maximum available level in your events.

    How to use
    This plugin is not plug&play (but it will automatically lock your actor's weapons) !
    You need to at least configure every actor weapons list (with existing actors and weapons ids).

    Demo
    There's a demo project available to download on my itch.io page showing a possible use of this plugin.

    FAQ
    You can use this page or drop on my Discord server for questions.

    Could you please do a minor edit to your post
    "proper credit" could mean different things to different people. Could you specify exactly what the credit should be e.g. Credit TWings.
    Thanks.

    When I started working on my main project. There was a lot of Suikoden features I wanted to have and very few available as far as I could find. Although this isn't one of those (there are already some close enough plugins out there to do that). So the plugins I'm currently releasing are all modified versions of those I created for myself so far.

    I didn't initially itend to release anything before my game, but there's still a lot of work for it to be done and I enjoy working on plugins sometimes. I'm still not sure how far I'm willing to go on releasing plugins before Galdmaril is ready. Until now, I've chosen the ones that were not to hard to adapt to run independantly for other projects.

    As far as Suikoden features goes, right now there's only one I have yet to make public : the Trade Shop. But this is way more advanced and will require quite some work to make it independant and "user friendly". So I don't know yet when I'll make it available.

    I'm not excluding the possibility of making new plugins for others at some point, so who knows there might be more coming later for Suikden fans. :LZSwink:

    I'm right there with Tea when it comes Suikoden stuff. HUUUUUGE fan! The Trade shop would be something I'm definitely interested in. Also, for the weapon upgrades, does the weapon actually change? Or does it just change the name. The reason I ask is because you have the potential to do something better than Suikoden, which is actually the changes of weapons in battle based on the weapon graphic.

    That's not something I considered, but it should work. The weapons levels are based on weapons you create in the database, so you could potentially go as far as switching weapon types/graphics as long as the actor can use that weapon. There's nothing preventing you from forging an axe from a sword. The only limitation I can think about is dual wielding; you can't just switch it on/off without some smart eventing.

    Can we define items to be consumed for weapon level ups, such as Ingots and Whetstones? Or is it strictly limited to Gold at this point? A combination of the two would be amazing :D

    So far, my plugin only uses the standard Gold.
    I'm not completely excluding a possible update with such advanced feature, but I don't have any plans for it anytime soon.

    If you're looking for customized items costs you could maybe try out this plugin instead.

    Update v1.10 available.
    You can now set an item cost instead of gold for any weapon level you wish.
