This plugin is a part of the Yanfly Engine Plugins library.
This plugin requires YEP_ItemCore. Make sure this plugin is located under YEP_ItemCore in the plugin list. In RPG Maker MV, there exists only four categories seen in the item menu: Items, Weapons, Armors, and Key Items. Adding extra categories wouldn't be possible without plugins. This plugin, through the help of Item Core, will allow you to add in many more categories in addition to many premade ones that are automatically added based on weapon types, armor types, equipment types, item usage, and more! This is a collaboration plugin by Sylvester and Yanfly to ensure compatibility with the Yanfly Engine Plugins library.
To change the item categories that appear in the item menu, go to the plugin parameters and alter the list. Separate each category with a comma (,). Each category must be spelled correctly using the following formats: ----------------------- -------------------------------------------------- Plugin Parameter Syntax Description ----------------------- -------------------------------------------------- Items Lists only Regular Item types AllItems All items in the items database with Key Items RegularItems Lists only Regular Item types KeyItems Lists only Key Item types HiddenItemA Lists only Hidden Item A types HiddenItemB Lists only Hidden Item B types Consumable Lists only consumable items Nonconsumable Lists only nonconsumeable items AlwaysUsable Lists only always usable items BattleUsable Lists only battle usable items FieldUsable Lists only field usable items NeverUsable Lists only never usable items Weapons Lists all weapons WType:x Lists weapons of type x (replace x with ID) Armors Lists all armors AType:x Lists armors of armor type x (replace x with ID) EType:x Lists items of equip type x (replace x with ID) Category:x Lists items of category x (replace x with text) An example of a list that would display something like: Items Key Items Dagger Sword Bodygear Accessory Herbs Would look like this for the plugin parameters: Items, KeyItems, WType:1, WType2, AType1, AType2, Category:Herbs The categories go in the order they're listed so plan them out accordingly.
RPG Maker MV's editor is unable to allow for custom traits/properties that a game dev may wish to associate with a database object, event, map, etc. Notetags are used to work around such limitations by allowing the game dev to tag certain traits/properties using specific Notetags declared by the related plugin.
Here is a list of Notetag(s) that you may use.
To add custom categories to items, use the following notetag: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Item, Weapon, and Armor Notetags: <Menu Category: x> <Menu Category: x, x, x> - Replace 'x' with the category name you wish to give the item. Insert multiples of this tag to insert more categories. These categories will be used in combination with the Category:x plugin parameter syntax keyword. For Example: <Menu Category: Herbs> Would require this syntax keyword in the plugin parameters: Category:Herbs If you use the version of the notetag with multiple categories, it would work something like this: <Menu Category: Herbs, Potions, Elixirs> Plugin Parameter: Category:Herbs, Category:Potions, Category:Elixirs **Note** The notetag does not apply for any of the pre-made categories. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
