Prototype definitions » PrototypeBase » Prototype/ItemGroup

An item group. Item groups are shown above the list of craftable items in the player's inventory. The built-in groups are "logistics", "production", "intermediate-products" and "combat" but mods can define their own. Only 255 instances of this prototype may be defined.

Items are sorted into item groups by sorting them into a subgroup which then belongs to a item group.
