How to create multiple instances of a type ‚Äč

To create more than one instance of a certain type, use the BuildMany(int count) method of the ItemBuilder class. This method returns a collection of new objects of the specified type, each with different values for the unique configurations.

c#
// creates n instances of the given type:
var potions = new ItemBuilder<Potion>().BuildMany(5);
Assert.That(potions, Has.Count.EqualTo(5));
Assert.That(potions, Is.Unique);

// works with custom builders as well:
var bluePotions = new BluePotionBuilder().BuildMany(50);
Assert.That(bluePotions, Has.Count.EqualTo(50));
Assert.That(bluePotions, Is.Unique);
// creates n instances of the given type:
var potions = new ItemBuilder<Potion>().BuildMany(5);
Assert.That(potions, Has.Count.EqualTo(5));
Assert.That(potions, Is.Unique);

// works with custom builders as well:
var bluePotions = new BluePotionBuilder().BuildMany(50);
Assert.That(bluePotions, Has.Count.EqualTo(50));
Assert.That(bluePotions, Is.Unique);
