Item System for RPG

So, I am planning to make single players RPG, with a itemsystem that is not that complicated. I got 2 possible ways, you can tell me which you would prefer, too:

Style 1: Limiting certain type of items (such as Weapons or Armor) to maximum of, lets say 2. If I wanted to make it so that you can only have maximum of 2 weapon-type items in your inventory, and maximum of 2 armor-type items in your inventory. How could I trigger such?

Style 2: Using dummy items that you can equip, and then they would show up in multiboard. Should be same way as other one, maximum of 2 weapon-type items and 2 armor-type items, and inventory would be reserved for quest items, consumables and junk.

i would like the second option.

how would you go about doing that though?
it happens to be a question i just asked moments ago.
ive seen systems that use multiboard inventories but i never understood how they worked.

Personally I like the first one.

To trigger it, make a each type of item a different item type (i.e. Weapons = Purchasable, Armor = Artifacts, etc.) and use a trigger like this:
Trigger:
  • Weapon Limit
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Acquires an item
    • Conditions
      • (Item-class of (Item being manipulated)) Equal to Purchasable
    • Actions
      • For each (Integer A) from 1 to 6, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            • If - Conditions
              • And - All (Conditions) are true
                • Conditions
                  • (Item-class of (Item carried by (Hero manipulating item) in slot (Integer A))) Equal to Purchasable
                  • Carried_Weapons[(Player number of (Owner of (Hero manipulating item)))] Equal to 2
            • Then - Actions
              • Item - Remove (Item being manipulated)
              • Set Message_Player = (Owner of (Hero manipulating item))
              • Quest - Display to (All players matching ((Matching player) Equal to (Owner of (Hero manipulating item)))) the Quest Update message: You cannot have more than 2 weapons!
            • Else - Actions
              • Set Carried_Weapons[(Player number of (Owner of (Hero manipulating item)))] = (Carried_Weapons[(Player number of (Owner of (Hero manipulating item)))] + 1)

    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    @tom_mai78101 I must be blind. If I go on my profile I don't see any area to edit the signature; If I go to account details (settings) I don't see any signature area either.

    You can get there if you click the bell icon (alerts) and choose preferences from the bottom, signature will be in the menu on the left there https://www.thehelper.net/account/preferences

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
