RELEASED Bk3k's Inventory 1.20

More space, more tabs, better organization, happy hoarding.

    I like this mod, and have been using it ever since I found it. Thanks!

    Pros:
    • The extra space is great; it avoids problems associated with picking up odds and ends that clutter inventory before returning to my main storage warehouse.
    • The re-grouping/tabbing; it's nice to find the tree saplings with the seeds, a logical and easy to find spot.
    Cons:
    • The amount of screen real-estate covered up by the GUI is a bit of a problem when trying to take something out of inventory and place it in the world. And putting things in the hot-bar to close the inventory first is a step backwards rather than an improvement over vanilla Starbound. I've got other stuff in the hot-bar.
    • Thrown weapons such as spears, boomerangs, bombs and darts don't seem to be grouping into weapons. Just noticed a Sep-3 update that mentions weapons categories, so I've downloaded that as it might have addressed this.
    I've noticed there's a bunch of basically unused space beneath the inventory screen...

    That might work if you are still using a monitor with a 4:three resolution, but that's too tall for 16:9 without shrinking the size of the UI itself. Besides, where are the new tabs and the pet stats going to go?

    Do you have a screen shot of that?
    16/9 = 1.778 x pixels / y pixel, so something like 1366 x 768 resolution

    I'm not planning to change the layout of the mod itself, but at some point I was planning to put out an alternate UI patch for it so people have choices.

    p.s. I'm fine with throwables going into the default tab and not the weapons tab. I'd have to clean my "weapons" out far too often if that got changed.

    I was thinking about this And actually thought you could implement new tabs very easily--there's lots of real estate underneath all of the inventory boxes that could just be expanded by ~20 pixels (or however tall a tab is) and then you've got plenty of room! I'd want even further separation--split saplings/seeds, lights/containers, furniture/lights. Put EPPs and..uh..EPP plugins/armor/vanity, split food/prepared food.

    And if you could implement a search filter for the player's inventory, that'd be amazing..though I remember seeing someone say that wasn't possible--but I have no idea if that's true or not.

    When I tried to throw a script on the interface, it seemed to be ignored. I even intentionally put a syntax error in there to provoke a log response... nothing. I just ignores it.

    The thing about throwing weapons is they share a category ("throwableItem") with a lot of stuff that isn't a weapon. Separating what is and what isn't a weapon involves lots of item patches both vanilla and for all the mods I'm currently covering... no thanks LOL. Plus I kinda prefer to keep the armory tab as things that aren't disposable and I didn't want to take EVERYTHING out of the main tab.

    Originally I had thought about having a vehicle tab but decided that there where just not enough vehicles(even including mods) to really justify them having their own tab. That decisions was reached before the player modular mechs where a thing and I kinda wish I had added that tab.

    The thing about adding tabs now is it would force the people currently using this mod to AGAIN start a new character for the same technical reason they had to originally (starbound not simply creating default null data for missing tabs). That might even be tolerable for the forum where people can read what's in an update before installing it thus deciding to update or not... but the people using my mod on the workshop would just get screwed and most wouldn't know why because the updating of subscribed mods simply happens. So I wouldn't do that.

    Unless Starbound gives modders their own equivalent to the versioning system. If they'd let me modify player data (and that needs to happen before actually loading it)... I could EASILY convert older characters just like the versioning system does for vanilla characters, universes, etc. In turn I could add more tabs without wrecking older characters. Alternatively Starbound could sanitize/default missing data rather than simply crashing. That would also be acceptable.

    Ah yeah, I forgot about that step. That would be a problem. Maintaining multiple branches isn't fun either. I may just fork your mod locally and do it for myself.

    The alternate UI I was planning didn't turn out exactly as planned, but here you are.

    Thanks bunches, looks great!

    Here's what it looks like at 1280x800 x2 scale, with 1 x UI scaling

    Plenty of room to place stuff down in the world.

    That's very cool. To note, if running one of the Frakkin mods, either Races or Universe, it makes your .JSON file unusual in a way that make_versioned_json.exe does not like. If you get the error "Error! Caught exception (JsonParsingException) Error parsing json: unexpected character parsing word at 135:24" or something similar, go to the line it states (for me it is line 135) and you'll see it lists the buffs that FrackinRaces applies. They have a duration of "inf". The compiler does not like "inf" so change the occurrences of "inf" to "999999" in the ephemeralEffects section there and save the file, then the conversion should work fine.

    Do not worry, 999999 is plenty of time for the Frakkin mods to change the buff duration back to inf so everything should work fine from there on out. I hope.

    ok so i am a serious pack rat.... any chance of making the inventory a little bigger.... say maybe 12 x 20 or even 10 x 18? i really would love the extra space, either way awesome as it is

    Have you tried Smart Tubes?
    You can off-load all that extra stuff and it gets sorted into whatever containers you decide.

    I've had a few requests for an even larger version and am considering it. A few things about that -

    I can't expand the main mod (and wouldn't) because that would mess with current users - rendering their characters unusable. On top of the GUI being too big for some already. I also don't want to fork my own mod because that's a pain to maintain. So I'd necessarily do something similar to what I'm doing with the inventory reskin mod I made for this. I'd load after and apply patches on top of it.

    The current mod is 15 x 8 - or 8 x 15 if using the reskin. I'd expand probably by making it 15 x (something larger than 8).

    cool, i am using the reskin as it is now.... though i would have to start a new character, totally worth it though, lol

    I found bug... Quest - take item and give it to -XXX- - quest failed ( -script not see this item in inventory

    I've never experienced this. I've done different quests of that nature with this mod installed (I no longer play without it) and never had that issue. This particular mod doesn't have any scripts anyhow, so the bug doesn't really belong to me.

    And it seems odd anyhow, because there are no functions that look into specific bags. The player inventory is seen as a whole as far as anything else is concerned - beyond a versioning script (which isn't something modders get to use anyhow) and the player interface itself.

    No I really don't think this would be related to this mod, but I could see how you might assume so. Thanks for the report in any case.

    I don't know if it's already been suggested or not. (pretty sure someone might have by now)
    But a search box would be a wonderful addition! Just something that would greyout items that don't match, as you type in a string. And also maybe a "deposit all" icon for those of us who know we want to dump all our current tab into the inventory we have open at the time.

    Looks like a compatibility patch will have to be made for Frackin' Universe's new Research currency. Will take a look at making one once I get some sleep.
