So I looked around and decided…

shops are VERY important, and everyone should know an easy way to make them

Games that need shops

there are many games that need shops in order for the game to feel complete, here is a short bullet list of some games that include them:

  • RPG game
  • a simulator game
  • a story game
  • tycoon game
  • fighting game

Now lets make the shop, for the shop you’ll need:

  • sentry
  • Market stand
  • button
  • Popup
  • Vending machine

Key:
green, underlined words mean in device dictionary
Bold words mean its important
Italicized word means semi-important


Start the shop by placing a sentry and a market stall to make a shop

Then, you’ll need to place a Button , then, place a popup and wire them together to:

button pressed --> open popup

Now, you can make any dialogue to the popup by pressing the popup and typing in the text boxes to make a little guy talking to you to buy some stuff!

Then go to the call of actions in the popup and click the first call to action:

once clicked, type in “buy ____” the blank can be anything you want the shop to sell

then, once you do that you need to place a vending machine and wire the popup to the vending machine

popup --> 1st call to action clicked --> attempt to buy ---> vending machine

now put in the vending machine whatever is the first item you want to sell

for this first item shop I want to give 5 cash for 1 blueberry (this can be anything but im just using this as an example)

So now you have a first item to sell, you should right now have a button in the shop market you made, (the button should be invisible so that people don’t see it) and once the button is pressed you will be greeted by a popup that says the first item that you can buy, ex. pic below:

then you can add more items by placing more popups with the vending machines

if second action to call clicked --> open popup

and continue doing this for every item you have in this shop

And there you have it, you can now make a working little shop!

please let me know if you have any questions

Do you want to buy a blueberry lol
Nice guide, for the vending machines, you can also use checkers and Item granters

Yeah, it’s not a visible shop so the appearance setting doesn’t really matter and it’s more memory-efficient to use Checkers and Item Granters.

well, I was trying to make an easy way for beginners and stuff but yeah that would technically work better

@Aubec7 (The_Unexpected_Gim) how would I make an option, “no” where it exits the popup?

you can only have two call to actions

You can have a “next” cta to fit three or more options though.

I don’t want a next, just an end.

@Aubec7, @Haiasi, please help.

Can @name please help me?

Clicking a CTA automatically closes the popup

what’s a cta?

Call-To-Action.

??? what?

The buttons on a popup.


okay… thanks…

yes, it closes automatically no matter what cta you click
