Perfect timing, I was just wondering how inventories look scripting wise since i’m going to make my first inventory.

Just keep in mind that this isnt the best inventory system.

Really awesome of you to release this for usage. Looks pretty good! Definitely gonna have to take a look at the custom hot bar part since I’ve actually been working on something similar myself, but with view port frames. Keep it up!

I’m curious how you handle picking up object, I took a look and I couldn’t find the script doing it, you seem to be using ClickDetectors. Can you show what part does it?

local function update()
	wait(0.1)
	for _,v in pairs(game.Workspace.Items:GetChildren()) do
		if v:FindFirstChild("ClickDetector") then
			
				--Click function
				v.ClickDetector.MouseClick:Connect(function()
					if debounce == false then
						senditem:FireServer(v)
					debounce = true
					end
				end)
				
				--Maybe implement Item Hover (see sell price, weight etc)
		end
	end
	debounce = false
end

That’s line 28 in the main inventory script local.

You have a folder in workspace containing all clickable items with a clickdetector. Once a item gets added to that folder or removed, it’ll call that function and update it correctly.

So if you want to make a new pickable item, parent it to that folder with a clickdetector.

Ah I see, I also thought you were checking for clicks on the client, and sending a signal to the server telling it to remove the object.

Also wouldn’t it be more efficient if you ran the loop only once, connecting the parts that already exist, and when a new item is added meaning ChildAdded fired, make an event connection just for that event instead of all of the other events that already exist?

Yea I think that would improve performance a little.
Good point

This is really nice! Very clean GUI easy to modify. However, I noticed that consumables don’t have an option to be consumed? Maybe I missed it, but nice work!

That’s actually true.
I didn’t do that yet but you can probably find that out yourself!

Wow! This really looks great! This will be very helpful for developers with a needed inventory such as this one!

Keep up the good work! :+1:

Is there a certain reason why the inventory GUI won’t show up?
I can’t find out why it isn’t working.

If it’s not open for you, you might need to press I or M I believe to open / close it.
If thats not the correct button, go into the local script and find the lines for open/close

It’s great but I noticed it doesn’t save equipped items and I’d like to make only certain items stackable to my choosing. I still feel like I need pratice with datastores and some more scripting in general.

All UI is changeable and fully customizeable.
This thing should just give you the idea and functionality behind an inventory system, if you have a slight understanding of everything you should be able to change it to your liking with your own importet UI.

Is there any chance you will release your improved version of the inventory system?
The current one is amazing and it works well however if there are stackable items it would be even better.
