A Shop Like Thing

In this page you can see different techniques of creating a shop.

Example implementations

There's a discussion thread that started in 2019 (Wesnoth 1.14).

The Colosseum add-on's shop

The add-on Colosseum has a shop that's intended to be usable by other add-ons. Basic usage is given in the readme file in the add-on.

Simple

Use this macro to place a moveto event in your scenario that defines a magic-items shop. Argument is a StandardLocationFilter.

Used macros:

#define CREATE_SIMPLE_SHOP FILTER
   [event]
       name=moveto
       first_time_only=no
       [filter]
           # this is not a macro. It is a argument token, 
           # which will be substituted with argument value
           {FILTER}
       [/filter]
       [store_gold]
           side=$side_number
           variable=css_gold
           # it is bad idea to use simple variable names like "gold" inside macro
           # because you can overwrite values of variables,
           # which was defined outside of this macro and was supposed to be used for
           # anything else. To prevent any side effects, preceed macro-specific variables
           #  with abbreviation of macro name
       [/store_gold]
       # this is easiest way to create menu in the game.
       # you just define each value and player sees them anytime he trigger this event

Feature suggestions

Allow multiple choices in single dialog

Instead of exiting after the player buys one item, a better shop allows the player to buy more than one. This can be done with an infinite loop, which exits when the player chooses the "exit" option. For example, the Colosseum's implementation:

   [while]
       [variable]
           name=finished
           boolean_equals=no
       [/variable]
       [do]
           # ...
               [option]
                   label= _ "Done"
                   [command]
                       {VARIABLE finished yes}
                   [/command]
               [/option]
           # ...
       [/do]
   [/while]

Optionally enter the shop

Instead of using moveto events, you can use set_menu_item to allow the player to decide whether they want to enter the shop, by adding an "Enter Shop" option to the right-click menu.
