Hey this is the coolest script I have ever seen! Good job Blizzard this is sick. I was toying around with the demo testing this script and I caught an error. It happens on the item creation when I go to extras/variance and hit back (ESC). Here is the error: "Script ' (*) Creation System' line 2202: NoMethodError occurred.

undefined method 'set stats' for #<RPG::Item:0x3396358>". I hope you can fix this and I definitaly am using this in my game as special rewards and such for hard quests.

HOLY ****, THIS IS INCREDIBLE! :o :o :o :o :o

I- This thing lets you make a completely new item!!! This is amazing! I get lightheaded just thinking about it! It's an item generator! How sweet is this? Awesome! :D

Someone should make a skill version of this that would be soooo, sweet!

@diablosbud: I know, Zeriab already reported that. I also forgot to add that you can define the armor type under "Extras" in the armor screen. I might put a skill plugin up somewhere later or actually integrate it into this script. Now you can all go and copy Morrowind and Oblivion with their creation systems. :3

@shdwlink1993: I know. :P I took a day off last weekend (the one 7 days ago) to finally finish this script. It took a day and it was only the last 20%, maybe 30% of the script. This script took a lot of time to make. No wonder it has more than 2000 lines of code, that's almost as much as my CMS.

All i all, I love it, Easier for me to no worry about making 100x of weapons for each characters =p

Blizzard

As I already said, Zeriab reported that bug to me. I didn't fix it before I put up this version because I didn't add the armor type selection as well, but wanted to put it up ASAP.

What's this?
You ask for bug reports and when you get them you complain?
Instead you should fix them and be nice :x

That being said thanks for sharing this nice system <3

Jahjah, dont drop the bomb please.. :(

Anyways this is a good script. I'll play with it later :P

No, no, no! I'm not complaining, I'm just asking for patience until I have time to fix this. :)

EDIT: Ok, I was writing yesterday a part of my diploma thesis and at one moment I needed a serious break. So I took off half an hour to relax with RMXP scripts and fixed the bugs in this one. xD I updated it to 1.0b. It should work fine now.

What am I doing wrong? For some reason, when I make weapons, they end up with 0 attack. What stat of the crafting items influences the attack stat of the weapon made?

Or did I not do something correctly with the script's database?

None of the ingredients within the demo have an attack modifier. By what I mean attack modifier I mean a Physical Attack. You would need an item that modifies the P.ATK or P.DEF in order to have something added on. I don't know specifically how to edit that in items, as the only area I can find P.ATK would be within weapons...This is the dumbest solution ever, forgive me.

EDIT: Now I'm wondering here. I tried every parameter and stat for items, and now you would have to go for weapons if it were to work (In other words, I can't find anything that influences Attack OR P.DEF). I would use my forged weapons if only they had attack (I enabled Recursive Use, FYI). Now I'm curious, can you enable weapons and armors to be forged back into something stronger? I only see items in the script. I'm sure it can be added, just that you would need to tread through very dark alleys...

What's osu!? It's a rhythm game. Thought I should have a signature with a working rank. ;P It's now clickable!

Hmm... I can't find out how to use weapons for creation materials.

I used the script in my little game, and made my own ingredients.

Likewise.

I would assume the following code would find from which array to use:
  def self.cs_materials(item)
    return item.quality if RECURSIVE_USE && item.id >= 1000
    id = item.id
    factor = case id

But simply replacing item with "weapon" or "weapons" is failure. There probably are more database array configuration codes than just this one. Either that, or I'm using the wrong term.

I actually haven't enabled weapons and armors to be used as materials. O_o Are you sure that nothing can affect ATK and PDEF? If yes, I'll fix that soon, maybe even today.

I haven't checked with the PDEF, for I have not tried making armor. I was just tinkering around with the weapon creation. I'll try it out now, but due to me having to uninstall Ubuntu , a Linux build, and format my second HDD, It may take a while for my 256 RAM comp to process firefox, RMXP, and fdisk.

tldr: Comp r slo.

EDIT: Nope. Set all item stats to 100, and all that was affected was the cost.

Starrodkirby86

Blizz's creation system is derived from very simple factors. Basically, whatever stats that can be used will be used for the final weapon. So if you use an item that increases the strength parameter for example, then your masterpiece will have that strength up. So 5 Strength Seeds would be 25 Strength towards your weapon. Unfortunately, strength does not determine the overall strength of your weapon so it ends up as a failure anyway. Items that heal or whatnot do nothing. The only affect is the cost raises. Items that are used as elements and whatnot will be the element/effect for the weapon unless it is conflicted or the item in the script is not considered an elemental changer.

Just stating the obvious, thanks Blizz. :)

(When I say weapon I also mean armor/item)

I like this, but I hate how ANY item can be used and ANY weapon, or item can be made, I thought you can add something like giving a weapon or equipment an element, or upgrading the equipment..

Meh.. this is nice either way, this gave me an idea for a game that will never be released..
