Unique Containers

This mini-mod assigns unique icons to all containers in the game. Containers include standard and mod-added bags of holding, gem bags, scroll cases, potion cases and ammo belts. The tweak allows you to identify containers at a glance by colour and use them for a particular type of storage. Or it just makes your character's accessories colour-coordinated :P. Optionally, you can assign unique names (based on the colour) to the containers to differentiate them further.

The mod will also fix various issues with stores and containers in both the unmodded (and Fixpacked) games, as well as with mods. Some of those mods include BP, CtB, NEJ2, RoT, SOS and UB. Most significantly, it fixes some issues with Lost Items v2, including containers with duplicate stores attached and other mod usability issues pointed out by Bursk and SixOfSpades. You don't need to have any of these mods installed to use the main feature though.

Ultimately, this mod will be included in a larger tweak mod but is released as a patch or mini-mod in the interim.

Installation: Extract to your game directory, double-click on setup-contain.exe and follow the prompts. Option 1 gives you unique names and icons for containers, option 2 gives new icons only and option 3 just fixes container and store bugs in the vanilla game and with mods.

Compatibility: This mod is compatible with (Easy)Tutu, BGT and BG2 with any combination of mods. However, you should install this after any mods that add containers, including BG2 Tweaks and BGT Tweaks.
