Command: gui/create-item

Magically summon any item.

This tool provides a graphical interface for creating items of your choice. It walks you through the creation process with a series of prompts, asking you for the type of item, the material, the quality, and (if --multi is passed on the commandline) the quantity.

Be sure to select a unit before running this tool so the created item can have a valid “creator” assigned.

See also createitem or modtools/create-item for different interfaces for creating items.


gui/create-item [<options>]


gui/create-item --multi

Only provide options for creating items that normally exist in the game. Also include the prompt for quantity so you can create more than just one item at a time.

gui/create-item --unrestricted

Create one item made of anything in the game. For example, you can create a bar of vomit, if you please.



Also prompt for the quantity of items to create.

--unit <id>

Use the specified unit as the “creator” of the generated item instead of the selected unit.


Don’t restrict the material options to only those that are normally appropriate for the selected item type.


Instead of showing the item creation interface, start monitoring reactions for a modded reaction with a code of DFHACK_WISH. When a reaction with that code is completed, show the item creation gui. This allows you to mod in “wands of wishing” that can let your adventurer make wishes for items.
