Dialog Based Asset System

About

Dialog Based Asset System (DBAS) is a GPLv3 licensed branch from public domain code Dialog based Inventory. The basis of this code was written by Helral and has been modified for consistent import and usage across all maps.

Information Mining

  • The library reads the items Button (Face) for the icon to use in the inventory.
  • The library reads the items Button Tooltip for the tooltip to use in the inventory.
  • The library reads the items size from the item class it has (1x1, 1x2, 5x5). for example: 1x1Misc = a 1 by 1 slot item. 2x3Armor = a 2 by 3 slot item.
  • The library reads the items Level for the level requirement for equipping an item.

Requirements

  • The unit that uses the inventory must have a SC2 inventory to be able to use items, equipment bonuses.
  • The unit must have restricted slots for equipment that match the restriction of the equipment panel.
