inventory add script command is used to create a single new item and place it into the inventory for an entity. The new item will be combined into existing stacks in the calling entity's inventory if possible which may result in the original item being destroyed. If the calling inventory did not have an inventory created with
inventory create, if the item does not fit into the inventory or if it is not an item that can be put into inventories then it is dropped in front of the player instead.
This command is equivalent to
inventory addmulti <script> 1 except that this command does not (re)set the maximum count to 9999 and count (price for gold coins) to 1 after the
initend events have executed.
To add an existing item instead of creating a new one use
To add an item to the player inventory use
inventory playeradd or
inventory playeraddmulti instead.
To spawn items in the world instead of inside an inventory use
spawn item and to equip them as a weapon use
This command only creates item entities - to create entities of other types use
spawn npc or
inventory add <script>
Context: Any Entity
||Script path (without file extension) of the entity to add, relative to
The entity class script is loaded from
If the filename component of the script path starts with
gold_coin gold coin then the item will be treated as a gold coin which means that it will be added to the player's purse when the player interacts with it or when it would be added to the player inventory. Gold coins also somewhat act like stacks but use the price in place of the count and have the icon automatically selected based on the price.
If the script path contains the string
movable then the item cannot be added to inventories and is dropped in front of the player instead whenever it would be.
The initial mesh of the item will be
graph/obj3d/interactive/items/<script>.teo with the cooked mesh loaded from
game/graph/obj3d/interactive/items/<script>.ftl. Either the raw mesh, cooked mesh or entity class script file must exist or the item will not be created.
The initial icon of the item will be
graph/obj3d/interactive/items<script>[icon] if it exists or
graph/interface/misc/default[icon] otherwise. The icon size determines how many slots the item takes up in inventories except for movable items (which have no icon) and gold coins (where the icon depends on the price).
ℹ️ In version before Arx Libertatis 1.3 the icon file at the default path must also exist or the item will not be created, even for gold coins, movable items or items that change the icon in the
The ID of the created entity can be retrieved via the
^last_spawned system variable. It will be made up of the filename component of the script path (the entity class) followed by
_ and a previously unused four-digit instance number - meaning one that does not have an instance directory in the game resources under the script path and does not have an existing entity in the current area or save file.
This also means that it is not possible to create entities with instance scripts using this command (or any other script command).
If the created entity is destroyed before this command returns (because it was fully merged into an exiting stack or because the init events destroyed it) then then
^last_spawned will be
none. If the init events spawn additional items then
^last_spawned will contain the ID of the last spawned item.
The created item will be sent the
initend events (in that order) before being combined into stacks or added to the inventory.
