  1. MV has a lot of Plugins (just as many Scripts as Ace, if not more). Heck, Yanfly's library of plugins easily outweighs his VX Ace collection of Ruby Scripts, and they offer far more versatile features & options. MV is the first & only RPG Maker engine to support HD resolution, while Ace is still limited to a 640x480 resolution. And who is 'They'? Who remade this using old SFC Graphics? Re-imagining isn't the same thing as a remake (similar to what's happening with the FF7 'Remake'). That phrase actually worries me, because there's another guy who is attempting to do a re-imagining with Ace & not only is his game butchering the classic but he's trying to add so much stuff to the game that he's having issues with scripts & I think he got seriously set back to the point of starting all over again, if he hasn't quit already. I haven't heard of any remake that uses the old NES graphics that I know of.
  2. You know, you're right, Brian. My spelling and* grammar can be a bit fucked up at times. It was never flawless, but having taken a six year break from creative writing to work six days a week to keep the lights on, it has suffered. Like anything else, if you don't use it, you lose it.

     

    In order for you to even try to understand, I'd need to give you my life story and I am not about to spill those details to the likes of you, Chief. I will give you the long and short of it, though.

     

    I have no shortage of mistakes made. No shortage of life lived. It's taken me a very, very long time to embrace my failures and find value in myself in a world that measures humam beings based on trivial bullshit.

     

    I have a grade 9 education. Four grade 10 credits. Go ahead, look down on me. You've already done so, and it happens to be something I'm intimately familiar with. You see, I got in alot of trouble as a yute (that means youth). I had things going on that were never addressed. Instead I became a hot potato kid. The slightest mis-step, and I was goneski! Shipped off to the next home, sometimes even the streets.

     

    So I got wise to the system I was trapped in. I left school and went to work anywhere I could. I was going to take care of my-damn-self, because no one else would...

     

    It's so easy to sit behind a screen and judge people, Bryan, but it's a shitty, ignorant practice that will only make you look like a heavyweight asshat.

     

    Best of luck with whatever it is you do, Buddy.

      That One NPC

      It's still very much a work in progress, but the plot I'm cooking up is heavily inspired by (but not aiming to directly emulate) FF7's life stream and living planet concepts. I also want to tie political themes in that are somewhat current. The scope of the protests in Hong Kong, and the immigration war in the States have inspired me as well.

       

      I'm thinking of a world much like our own. Many countries which are closed off from one another. Many species facing extinction due to human activity. Pollution ravaging the air, soil, and oceans. Humanity has disconnected from spirituality, burning their dead like household garbage instead of returning them to the planet. (I have a real world issue with burning dead. It's violent and unnatural. The process of decay exists for a reason imo.)

       

      One nation in particular will the native land of several main characters, and it will be in turmoil, under the leadership of a charismatic, racist politician. One character among them will have an uncanny understanding of the lost spirituality I spoke of. More or less the local doomsayer, and looked upon by many as little more than a lunatic.

       

      The selfish, materialistic lifestyle of humanity abroad is destroying society and nature. One thing I've been thinking about and trying to reconcile conceptually is making monsters able to go exinct if the player kills too many of them. Some monsters will be evil and malicious by nature that won't go exinct. The idea I'm playing with is that tje disconnect from spirituality has either angered their Goddess, or attracted a nefarious sort of energy that is amplifying all the bad aspects of life and humanity. This results in the malicious monsters showing up.

       

      For the exinct monsters, I've been thinking about a monster behavior/mood system for normal monsters. So sometimes a creature might be just roaming peacefully, other times you might find one that's hungry or hunting, and therefor on the attack. The player's actions in battle ccould change the creatures mood.

       

      I also want to put in a system that allows the player to help protect or restore populations. Maybe taking eggs to a conservation facility or something. Maybe it could be as easy as not killing them for awhile.

       

      It's all a work in progess as I said. The main focus starting out is the premise.

       

      For me it's all about how you set things up and guide the player through the narrative. If you throw things in their face, they might shut down on you. I think you've got to lead the player there over time.

      That kinda reminds me of some games, that take place in the future. The future is quite often shown as a world destroyed by humanity, whether due to a war or just human activity like you mentioned. Speaking of these things, I think I wouldn't be surprised if our future would end up like this. It's a shame how destructive humanity is.

       

      This does sound legit and interesting to be honest.

      Yeah, that's what I had in mind from some point of view earlier. Sounds like you know what you're doing.

       

      Well then, so it's pretty much now a matter of inspiration and motivation, that you have to do your best to not lose in the process. Good luck!

      I've always been more of an idea guy than a developer. That's been my challenge. My games usually outgrow my ability to develop them. I would rather put them on ice than butcher them. ^_^

  3. I'm actually a strong believer of the KISS concept. Simplistic is the better way for my game. Its literally a 'Grind-fest Gacha' game & games like that actually benefit from having shorter battles or otherwise players begin to lose their patience & burn out.
  4. I usually already incorporate these in my games, as each of the 8 initial elements has a negative status effect tied to it; Fire - Burn/Burning Ice - Freeze/Frozen (possible shatter-kill) Thunder/Lightning - Paralysis/Shock/Stun Water - Wet (resistance to fire & burn [removed by fire as well], weak to thunder/lightning/ice & paralysis/shock/stun/freeze/frozen) Earth - Petrify/Stone Wind - Confusion/Slow/AGL Debuff Holy/Light - Blind/Instant Death to Undead Dark/Darkness - Blind/Instant Death Its not. The editor is extremely limited, especially Battle Events. Besides, by nature, a check would have to be performed to see if damage was caused by a physical attack. The only real way to even check for that is through a script call, which isn't easily done in battle. Nothing short of a plugin which applies advanced effects to states & checks for actions in battle can accomplish this.
  5. I need a 'shatter-kill' effect for my Frozen state. Basically, when a target is frozen & is hit with a physical attack, there would be a random chance for that target to die instantly. I need a way to pull this off with a sound effect. I don't care if its done by plugin or damage formula.

    Booster Pack & Card Icons

    I've updated the icons so there's more now. A full set of 32 Booster Pack icons & some have a gradient added so now there's an actual Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum packs, Emerald/Jade, Sapphire/Cobalt & Ruby packs, and the Rainbow Pack has been updated to look better. The only thing I couldn't do was add a gradient effect for the cards themselves, but oh well!

    This can cause seizures!
  9. What I need is a plugin that allows for changing a character's Max Level within the game. Like for example, a character's default max level is set to 30, but can either complete a quest or use an item on that character (both could utilize a Plugin/Script Call) that would increase their max level by a specified amount. In some games this is referred to as 'Ascension'. However, I am using Yanfly's Core Engine (http://yanfly.moe/2015/10/09/yep-1-core-engine/) & it already has a parameter to control the max level so I would need this plugin to override the Core Engine's control of that function, if possible.

    Looking for SV Battlers of VX/Ace Actors for MV

    Doesn't look like she'll be finished anytime soon. And so far she's mostly made character & face sets instead of battlers. I can always resize the character & face sets from VX & Ace, but battlers don't naturally exist for them & those are the most important graphics I need right now.
  11. I'm looking for side-view battlers of VX/Ace Actors for MV, if they exist.

    Booster Pack & Card Icons

    I looked all over the internet for Booster Pack icons for a game I'm making involving cards but couldn't find any anywhere! So I had to make them myself. If you're making a game that uses cards & want some actual booster pack icons, here you go. Terms of Use: These are free to use, Commercial or not, and feel free to recolor & repost them as you wish (just don't claim that YOU made them yourself). Credit isn't required but is appreciated. The cards themselves are actually recolored card icons from VX Ace's iconset, while the booster packs themselves are made by me.
