  1. So I discovered a way to make your total experience points into a power level type system where it would replace your attack power versus the enemies 'power level' I also found a way to increase hp when experience hits a certain point, eliminating stats and levels all together. Interesting but sadly not what I need on my current project.

    Hello! :)

    Nice to meet you, luckily there are a lot of free scripts/plugins for almost anything you could want!

    A Rat's Journey - Homeward

    It sure did help, this release actually includes all those fixes.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    I'd say it is likely that the artists are creating what they know, or are expanding on the rtp. It can be hard to make ethnic characters that are not offensive or just look like a ethnic colored white person. I've personally added in some more ethnic characters into my personal sprite sets, but it is a lot harder than using the 'standard' color that the game comes with.

    I submitted a thing. Would love some feedback if you have 15-20 minutes to spare.

      Even though I can't give the game a thorough, proper review (my current hardware just doesn't support it enough), I am impressed with the quality overall. I gave it a four-star rating based on that alone.

  7. I thought you would appreciate that in my current project there is a group called F.A.E. The Fairy Aquisition Experts. Which are kind of like a fairy Men in Black.

      I wonder what the nobles and royalty would pay with though? Gold and other precious metals aren't often valued much by that many fairies, though we do trade it with dwarves a fair bit. I could see the Seelie doing it for political favors, but the Seelie hate getting their hands dirty like that. The Unseelie might do it for slaves or something. Us solitary fairies though, we tend to trade though favors, magical items, interesting stories, or any number of more abstract things.

      They pay in favors, of course.

      Hehe, it does sound like a fun job. :3

    Hello Everyone!

    Always glad to meet another artist, too few around.
  9. My job has been sooooo slow the past two weeks. I cannot handle this level of boredom!

    Player Look directly at event Script Request

    Correct. Using a parallel process and common events that you can call with each event would make this work pretty well. I did something similar with a horror game I made when the event touches the player (or in case of event matches x and y locations) you take damage. This would work very similarly.

    Shiny Pixelart from the shining Shin

    Incorrect, that feather is the greatest thing I have ever seen. EVER.

    Games made with RM are 'automatically bad'

    Personally, I browse steam specifically for RPG Maker games, but I feel that I am a harsh judge, if I see RTP graphics up front I am turned off, if I see standard RTP classes and battle system I am stepping back, and if I see a generic storyline I ignore any other potential the game could have. This may just be a result of having been a part of the RM community since the PS1 game and RM2k, but I feel like if you are going to charge money for your game, you should be putting in the extra graphics, music, and story. Everyone has a story they want to tell and that makes RPG maker great, but just like any other easily accessible product, people are going to make 100 million clones of the same thing so they can make a quick buck. This happens in mobile games to an absurd degree, in movies and even in AAA games. This puts off potential players from a hidden gem because they assume, and usually rightly so, that it is the same garbage they have already been bombarded with. So yes, due to greed, this stigma is usually justified.

    Saeryen's Art!

    I honestly think the character has a potentially unique design, I'd love to see what colors you have in mind for him,

    pixel art Amy's Artwork

    I cannot get over your artwork, I like to dabble in pixel-based art myself, and you totally inspire me. I would honestly play any game you put out just for the artwork alone!
  15. Scripts are actually unique to each system as there is a different RGSS for each RPG Maker, but this is something that could be fairly easily accomplished with a global common event call, I don't own XP so I cannot make a tutorial for this, but I feel it would not be too difficult to accomplish.
