It is time for you to make your own shops.

In this tutorial, you will also learn how to make the shops sell the items you want, and block the rest. Let's put a normal shop, then a secret shop.

Normal shop

Go into your prefabs tab, and find the shop_keeper_radiant.vmap entity. Place it where you want in your map. The huge yellow area around it defines where the heroes will be able to buy items around the shop.

Select it, and set the Shop Type to "Home".

Secret shop

Again, go into your prefabs tab, and select a shop. Let's pick shop_tower.vmap, and place it into the map. Select it, and change its Shop Type to "Secret".

Now that this is done, we need to tell the game what's in our shops, because we aren't making a default Dota 2 map.

Editing the shops

First, we need a text file, at the right place. Here is the path it should go:

ShopFile.jpg

As usual, replace "zergling_madness" with the name of your addon.
Now, let's edit it. Empty, it looks like this:

Code:
"dota_shops"
{
    "consumables"
    {
           
    }

    "attributes"
    {


    }

    "weapons_armor"
    {
   
    }
       
    "misc"
    {
               
    }

    // Level 1 - Green Recipes
    "basics"
    {           
    }

    // Level 2 - Blue Recipes
    "support"
    {   
    }
           
    "magics"       
    {
    }
   
    // Level 3 - Purple Recipes
    "defense"
    {           
    }
       
    "weapons"
    {       
    }
   
    // Level 4 - Orange / Orb / Artifacts           
    "artifacts"
    {   
    }

    "sideshop1"
    {
    }

    "sideshop2"
    {
    }

    "secretshop"
    {                       

    }
}

And then, you add items in each category until you're satisfied with what the shop is selling. This is an example shop from the Valve example map, holdout:

Code:
"dota_shops"
{
    "consumables"
    {
        "item"        "item_greater_clarity"
        "item"        "item_flask2"
        "item"        "item_greater_salve"
        "item"        "item_tpscroll"
        "item"        "item_ward_observer"
        "item"        "item_bottle"
    }

    "attributes"

You simply list the items you want in each category. Not complicated, huh?

Marking items as non-purchasable

Unfortunately, even if an item isn't featured in one of your shop, it might still be purchasable if the user searches for it in shop tab. Therefore, something has to be done to prevent this. This is done via the npc_abilities_override.txt file. Here is where it should be located:

npc_abilities_override.jpg

where zergling_madness is the name of your addon. The next step is to list the items we want removed from our shop. In the following list, every item in the default game except blink dagger and item recipes (which are useless anyway) have been made impossible to purchase in the map:

Code:
// Dota Abilities Override File

    "Version"        "1"
    //Courier
    "item_courier"
    {
        "ItemPurchasable"                "0"

Furthermore, they shouldn't even show up if the user searches for them in the shop tab.

Additional detail for secret shop items

Custom items intended to be sold from the secret shop need an additional setting. Under your custom item in npc_items_custom.txt, those 2 lines need to be added:

Code:
"ItemQuality"                    "secret_shop"
"SecretShop"                    "1"
Otherwise, the item will go directly into your stash on purchase.

    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

  • Varine Varine:
    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
