VisualItemInv Animated.gif

This plugin changes the item list displayed in-game to become more visual and show bigger images, either as icons or pictures. The enlarged item, weapon, and armor images will show their item quantities next to them while a tooltip window appears above their selected cell to show the item's name.

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Changes the item inventory windows to become more visual.
  • Enlarged item images can be either icons or picture images.
  • Alter how large you want the images to appear with the Plugin Parameters.
  • Add different color backgrounds for different items.


This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.

Tier 4

This plugin is a Tier 4 plugin. Place it under other plugins of lower tier value on your Plugin Manager list (ie: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

This is to ensure that your plugins will have the best compatibility with the rest of the VisuStella MZ Plugin library.

Major Changes

This plugin adds some new hard-coded features to RPG Maker MZ's functions. The following is a list of them.


Window Columns and Spacing

It should come off as no surprise that these windows will have their usual column counts changed to adjust for the item images shown. The columns will be based on how many of the item icons can fit inside of the window.


Item Quantity Positioning

The item quantity will now be positioned to show in the lower right of any window cell with an enlarged icon. Due to this being a much smaller area than what is usually provided, some plugins may have incredibly squished appearances when it comes to displaying item quantity in some areas.

This needs to be adjusted in those plugins individually.


Items and Equips Core

VisualItemInv Equip.gif

For the Equip Menu, the remove item entry has been changed to show only the enlarged icon. This is to keep consistency with the rest of the plugin.



RPG Maker MZ'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.

The following are notetags that have been added through this plugin. These notetags will not work with your game if this plugin is OFF or not present.


Picture-Related Notetags

VisualItemInv Equip.gif


<Visual Item Picture: filename>
<Picture: filename>

- Used for: Item, Weapon, Armor Notetags
- Uses a picture from your project's /img/pictures/ folder instead of the
  item's icon inside the item windows instead.
- Replace 'filename' with the filename of the image.
  - Do not include the file extension.
- Scaling will not apply to the picture.
- Use the <Picture: filename> version for any other plugins that may be
  using this as an image outside of this plugin, too.
- The size used for the image will vary based on the icon size settings.


Background Colors-Related Notetags


<Visual Item BG Color 1: x>
<Visual Item BG Color 2: x>

- Used for: Item, Weapon, Armor Notetags
- Changes the background color(s) for the item to text color 'x'.
- Replace 'x' with a number from 0 to 31 to represent a text color.


<Visual Item BG Color 1: #rrggbb>
<Visual Item BG Color 2: #rrggbb>

- Used for: Item, Weapon, Armor Notetags
- Changes the background color(s) for the item to a hex color.
- Use #rrggbb for custom colors.
- You can find out what hex codes belong to which color from this website:
