Concept

Practically, the easiest way to have a space-based inventory system would be as follows:

  • The entire inventory will be composed of smaller inventory slots

  • Move item when the item has been selected

  • Check to see if any invalid moves occur (two items overlapping, an item partially off the screen, etc...)

  • Restore X-Position/Y-Position of selected object if any invalid moves occur
