I read/watched somewhere, that you can make a multiple currency bag using just events. I don't remember where I found this, and would like to use it again.

 

If anyone can help with this problem, I would really appreciate it.

What do you mean by currency bag?

An item, that will store gold?

 

Using an item, variable and some eventing should be enough to make it work I believe.


I believe I can :fly:.

Scripting stuff in VX Ace? Ever wanted to put script calls during playing? Perhaps RK5 Debug Console will help!

Yes. An item that can store gold, and other currencies. I think the item, variable, and eventing will work, I just don't remember how to do it so it does what I want.

Hmm.. It really depends on what functionalities you're planning to add.

 

Also I'm assuming, that MV's default stuff is similar to Ace's.

For example you could make an item, that in the description would be showing a variable. / Showing a variable in menus would also be doable, though that would require some small edits in scripts.

You could change the variable during the game.

For example, after battles adding party gold to the variable and removing party gold would do the thing. Before shopping, put a quick transfer from variable to party gold, to give the illusion, that the gold is counted from that bag. After shopping, transfer it back to the variable.

You could make multiple items with different variables, to store gems or other currencies. You could easily operate them through events.

Then putting a merchant that would be like this

"Hey there, I have a special item for you only for 40 gems!"

Then all you'd have to do is to put choice and conditional branch to check that variable...

 

Wouldn't that work?

Thank you for your reply, though I did find the video (finally).

 

Just so anyone knows, this is the link that I found to make a multiple currencies bag with just events:

>Sees OP's username.

I wonder if you have ulterior motives to search for that method... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

Anyway, new things are learned everyday. Gotta check that video soon!
