Containers

Chests, Desks and other places to lose your belongings

Containers are a featured first introduced in version 0.6.1

Containers allow to store and retrieve items. They come with a UI skin that allows to independently create a skin that fits the type of container.

(Container component with 5 Potions and 1 Sword as initial values)

It is important to note that a Container takes advantage of the Save & Load system that comes with Game Creator and automatically keeps track of the items added and removed, even between play sessions.

Containers are very useful for creating chests that are scattered around the world, which include valuable items and equipment.

But they can also be used in a more abstract way, allowing to use them as a a container to where dump the current Inventory items when switching between different playable characters (who have different inventories).

Containers can either be interacted through the Container UI or using the Container Actions.
