Ox Inventory

Ox Inventory

A slot-based inventory with item metadata for "item uniqueness".


If you are replacing a built-in framework inventory there will be compatibility errors.
If you are unwilling or incapable of resolving incompatibilities, do not install this resource.


We strongly recommend referring to Guides for setting up Git, Node.js, and pnpm.

Install all resource dependencies

Download a release (opens in a new tab) or build the source code.

git clone https://github.com/overextended/ox_inventory.git
cd ox_inventory/web
pnpm i
pnpm build

Install optional dependencies

These resources aren't required but provide additional functionality.

Resource start order

It's important for your resources to start in a logical order to prevent errors from missing dependencies.

start oxmysql   # this should be one of the first resources
start ox_lib
start framework # the name of your framework (i.e. ox_core, es_extended, qb-core)
start ox_target
start ox_inventory


Resource configuration is handled using convars (opens in a new tab).

### Shared

# Note: qtarget is deprecated, a future update may drop support (ox_target only, or gated features)
setr inventory:target false

Framework incompatibilities

  • Any frameworks with their own built-in inventory, item, or weapon systems are expected to have compatibility issues.
  • Money as an item may conflict with banking/account systems.

Refer to issue #1297 (opens in a new tab) for known compatibility issues.

Using an unsupported framework

If your framework does not have official support you'll have to implement it yourself.
If you're replacing an existing/built-in inventory system this may be complicated, but is a fairly simple task otherwise.

This setup is highly opinionated and rigid, so it's up to your own ability as a developer to make it work.

Setup a bridge submodule

You'll want to set the target framework first - this could be the name, an acronym, or just "custom".

setr inventory:framework "custom"

Copy the ox directory from the bridge (opens in a new tab) directory and give it the name you used above.

The bare minimum functions and event handlers are added here, but you'll need to change them to match your framework; we can't provide any help here. You can refer to the other framework bridges if you need inspiration.

Setup database references

Take a look at the mysql (opens in a new tab) module. You'll need to reference your player/vehicle tables and id columns.

elseif shared.framework == 'custom' then
    playerTable = 'characters' -- table storing player / character data
    playerColumn = 'charid'    -- primary key for identifying the character (i.e. identifier, citizenid, id)
    vehicleTable = 'vehicles'  -- table storing owned vehicle data
    vehicleColumn = 'id'       -- primary key for identifying the vehicle (i.e. plate, vin, id)


  • You will need a compatible version of ESX Legacy (opens in a new tab) (1.6.0 or higher).
  • You can convert player inventories with convertinventory esx.
  • All items in the database will be migrated to the internal item data.
    • Always restart the resource when items are migrated!


Support for QBCore is extremely limited, highly incompatible, and unlikely to improve.
  • You can use any "version" of qb-core that supports QBCore.Functions.AddPlayerMethod.
  • You can convert player and vehicle inventories with convertinventory qb.
  • All QB.Shared.Items will be migrated to the internal item data.
    • Always restart the resource when items are migrated!

Qbox Project

Qbox is a fork of QBCore developed by former team members and contributors to QBCore.

  • Improved security and performance of qb resources.
  • Integrated support for ox_inventory, with improved compatibility.
  • Support for ox_lib and ox_target.
