    Hey everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. Today, I've got a pretty wide range of odds and ends to show and discuss. First off, I have a few new Wisp designs to share. Namely, four new variants for Ice Wisps! Additionally, continuing with the Hybrid-Wisp idea from my previous update, here's a look at a second design for the Water-Light hybrid. Next, we have the first draft of the world map! This map isn't final, and additional story-relevant locations will be added over time, as well as ocean mapping. And building off the previous point, we also have a new song prepared for one of the newly revealed location on the world map, the dangerous, lightning scorched range of Mt.Magnet! Finally, to wrap things up, is a first look at a few new character battle sprites. Specifically for Diana, and her father Captain Sham! As far as non-visual progress, mapping and Wisp overworld interactivity has been at the forefront of my focus as of late. Hopefully I'll have some new updates regarding both of those in my next post. Take care everyone!

    Hello, sorry that I've been pretty quiet lately. The past week or so has been very difficult on me. I lost someone very important to me, my childhood puppy, and have been really struggling since. Although it's been incredibly difficult, I'm hoping things will start to return to normal. Here's a look into a few things that were started before a few weeks ago, but are now being polished up. First off is a few new Wisp variants for the light and dark Wisps. Of note, the first of each element was made with a specific character pairing in mind, the light Wisp was given a more crystalline/mirror-like look for Merric, while the dark Wisp was given an imperial armored knight look for Tyra. Additionally, something that I haven't fully decided on yet was visually incorporating the Wisps into the battle scene a bit more, when calling them or unleashing skills tied to them. Not entirely sure if or to what degree this would be done, but it is a work in progress, to keep an eye out for! Lastly, is the first look at a concept that may or may not be used in some way. Quite a while back, I toyed with the idea of having some Wisps able to "fuse" in some capacity. At the time, the Wisps were using a simpler elemental-orb based design, and so for their Hybrid designs, I was literally just going to have a half-and-half of their two sprites. Now that Wisps have gotten much more fleshed out designs, their potential Hybrid designs would receive a more thought out design as well. Here's the first look at one of these potential Hybrid Wisp designs, being Earth/Dark, and based off of obsidian. Something interesting to note, is that their colors aren't just picked at random. The primary/secondary colors are the exact middle-point between the colors used on the Earth and Dark Wisps. I haven't entirely decided how (or if) Wisp fusions/hybrids will actually be used, but if they were, I would want to implement it as more than just a cosmetic change, with the fusions granting different skills and stat boosts based on the types of Wisp used in the fusion. I'm hoping for updates to be more frequent going forward, so be sure to keep an eye out. And as always, I'd love to hear any feedback you might have regarding the project so far, or if you have anything you would like to hear more about. Have a great day!

    Hey, just a little word of advice. You'll probably have a greater chance of having someone help out with this (as well as having the finished result better fitting what you're envisioning) with a reference image. Even just a quick sketch helps out tremendously!

    Hey everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. After being gone for a good portion of January, progress is moving along again. I'm thinking of making update posts every few weeks, to go over the biggest bits of progress that has been made. Most notably, the Nature and Earth Wisps have received a lot of love, and now each have their complete set of 8 fully designed! Let me know what you think of how they turned out. Hey, and thank you very much, I'm glad you like what you've seen so far! I checked out your project as well, and the Whispers are indeed very adorable. I can certainly see the comparison, even down to the name, haha! šŸ˜›

    Itchio Page: https://vis-mage.itch.io/mana-star For the past several years, I've been working on an RPG project that's been heavily inspired by the Golden Sun series. It isn't a fan game, containing a completely new cast/world/assets/etc, but has been very mechanically inspired by the series. After years of work and planning, Iā€™m excited to reveal my project, Mana Star! CREDITS:

    Hey, welcome back! It's a bit quiet around here these days, but there's still a handful of us that have been around for a while.
  9. Just a heads up, Humble Bundle recently put up a sale on several versions of RPG Maker. MV is $20, Ace is $10, and older versions are a couple dollars each. Even MZ is about 20 dollars off.

  10. Hello! Would someone be able to help me out with a compatibility error between Shiggy's Multicurrency Plugin (requested below), and Yanfly's Core Engine (and to some degree Yanfly's Shop Core)? The issue between them is a little odd. With just those two plugins in a project together, there isn't a visible issue, but if you also have Yanfly's Shop Core, then when you attempt to buy or sell an item, the screen that shows you current gold/spending gold/remaining gold instead shows NaN (Not a Number) for the values. The reason that I believe the issue is with Yanfly's Core Engine is because if I only have Shiggy's plugin and Yanfly's Shop Core, this issue does not occur. I hope I explained this all well enough. If you're not sure what I mean by something, definitely feel free to ask. Thank you!
  11. For anyone looking to pick up MV, VxAce, or any of the older engines, they're all on sale at Humble Bundle for 80-90% off:

      Just the engines? (I have the base engines already)

  12. Hello! :) Would someone be able to help me with setting up Triacontane's Submenu Commands plugin? Evenenwith google translate, I can't for the life of me figure out how I'm supposed to set things up. https://triacontane.blogspot.com/2017/04/blog-post.html?m=1#comment-form What I'm hoping to do is create a "parent" menu option named Journal. And when it is selected, a handful of "children" options such as Quest Log, Bestiary, and Help can be selected. At the moment though, I can't seem to get any menu commands I try to set up in the plugin configuration to show up on the menu at all. I'm guessing that I just haven't properly configured it, but after a few hours of trying, I haven't had any luck. Just as a note, I have been trying this in a fresh project, so no plugin incompatibilities to worry about. Thank you
  13. Out of curiosity, is there anyone around the forums that currently accepts (fairly complex) MV Plugin commissions?

      I can't think of anyone from the top of my head, but hopefully someone does.

    I've been working with Charles on many, many commissions over the course of the past two years, and all throughout, he has been very responsive, and has done consistently great work. I cannot recommend his service enough! šŸ˜Š
