This plugin adds script commands you can use in ‘Move Routes’ that enable you to do extra things during autonomous and forced movement such as:
– jump forward x spaces
– jump to an event or x,y position
– step toward/away from event or x,y
– turn toward/away from event or x,y
– turn on/off self switches
– fade opacity in/out
– move random only on chosen regions
– wait a random amount of time
– repeat commands a number of times
– play balloons/animations
– set graphic to a particular frame

I came looking for this, but thought it would be too good to be true! Thanks!
Looks like it’s missing one of the functions: set_char that lets you choose what specific pose the character will be in. Am I overlooking that?
You’re right – I will add that one in later. Thanks for pointing it out :)
Both links send me to an OOPS page. Are the downloads down?
The file hosting I use might have been temporarily having issues. Try again as it works fine with my tests.
Can this have an event move diagonally towards a player? I have some floating eyeballs that currently “Move Lower Right” and then “Move towards Player” and it looks and feels really gimpy.
I’ve just glanced over the features and didn’t see any way to do that, but if someone could clarify I’d be really grateful.
There’s no move diagonal toward options – I will add it to my to do list
Updated to version 1.1 – Added ability to set a character to a certain frame of a characterset.
I have not added moving diagonal toward as I don’t believe RPG Maker MV does has code to check if even/player collide with things on the diagonal. I will look into that some time later
Thank you for sharing your great scripts with us.
Hopefully you find some time to look into the moving diagonal towards player feature. I would love to see my events act/move just like the player does.
So I tried to use this on an event I was working on, where I use another plug in so I can set movement routes for one of my followers insted of the player, but when I use the script command this.step_toward(i); it’s always the player who does the movement, doesn’t matter if the other plug in is working correctly ;-;
and also when I use “this.step_toward(3);” it only does one step, and I was wondering if there was some way of using a command so that the event or character or follower could just move random times (as much as necessary) towards the event I want it, and only stops when it has arrived at it, because that would be everything I need for the system i’m wanting to stablish on my game! Thx
1. The follower plugin sounds like it’s not compatible with this one. Unfortunately I don’t have the time or support to look into compatibility.
2. You could work out a way to use the step_toward function via eventing. You could put it on repeat x number of times perhaps – as it shouldn’t keep moving once it runs into that event.
this.jump_to(x,y) function works perfectly with TYR_Followercontrol plugin! Now I can make my followers jump to exact spot. Thank you for this awesome script I think you are the most talented scripter in MV community. BTW step function doesn’t work guys.
I’m definitely not the most skilled, but thanks. :P
What do you mean step function doesn’t work?
Oh I just meant the step function don’t work with TYR_Followercontrol plugin.
Hello. Sorry for my bad English.
I would need a plugin for RpgMkr MV that allows me to change (permanently) the graphic to a specific event page, maybe that also allows you to select the Z axis priority (below, above, in the middle) of the sprite, the speed and frequency …. all with some script command.
It is realizzable?
To change something permanently you would use a switch or self switch. This plugin won’t do that or any sprite changes, sorry.
Yes, I know that you can make permanent a graphic with a switch but that’s not what I need.
I need to be able to permanently set at a later date (after the creation of the event) the sprite of each page.
I have an event without a graphic indicating the place of a possible enemy in my batlle system events, I must be able to set the graphics of each event page in order to view a particular encountered monster.
On Rpgmker Ace had a script that did exactly what I need, but on MV I can not find anything like it.
If you could help me that would be great …
The script on Ace was this:
def page_graphic(page, graphic, index = 0)
@event.pages[page].graphic.character_name = graphic
@event.pages[page].graphic.character_index = index
def page_priority(page, priority)
@event.pages[page].priority_type = priority
def page_move(page, speed, freq, type = nil)
@event.pages[page].move_speed = speed
@event.pages[page].move_frequency = freq
@event.pages[page].move_type = type if type
def page_graphic(ev, page, graphic, index = 0)
$game_map.events[ev].page_graphic(page, graphic, index)
def page_priority(ev, page, priority)
def page_move(page, speed, freq, type = nil)
$game_map.events[ev].page_move(page, speed, freq, type)
This plugin does not do that, sorry. I recommend asking in a script request forum.
I forgot, the commands to the script are these:
– “Page_graphic (0,” Actor2 “, 1)” to set the page, respectively, the graphics and the index of pg
– “Page_priority (0,0,0)” to set ID, page and z axis priorities
hey, i found a way to make event spawning at player using this script, but i have to use a jump, which is quite sluggish, any suggestions that won’t have the wait of a jump, say, just an instant movement to the event. Not sure how possible that is. :0
Please see my response to your other messages about this on event spawner page.
I’m trying to use this script to have the player move away from a given event, however the event is duplicated randomly by another plugin, so the event ID is always unknown.
What ‘i’ would I use to call ‘this event’, just like how the ingame editor has a ‘this event’ option.
Thanks for your time.
I guess you’d have to store the id of the event you spawned in a variable and then use the variable in the step_away function. I recommend asking in a forum ways you can do that :)
Just had an idea, having a move towards event function. Homing missiles, anyone?
What should I do in order to make an event move toward another event and stop when they get to it? As it is I have the move route set to repeat, but once the event gets to the other event, the movement freezes as the event is just continuously moving toward the other event (and it’s set to wait for completion) Also, thanks for the script!
Check the ignore if cannot move checkbox and only repeat it as much as movement might be required
Hello. Sorry for my bad English.
When I use this plugin with Galv’s Event Spawner.
It doesn’t work ‘script call’ on move route at spawned events.
Just only move route script call. nothing else.
Can I fix this problem?
Oh. just forget it Galv. It’s not plugins problem. I think it collision with other plugins maybe. sorry~
i also have an issue using this with with Galv’s Event Spawner: When i spawn an event who have a move route extra, it stays at the place it was spawned. Something i can do to make both scripts work together ? Thanks
They should work together – please provide screenshots of your event setup.
– I am using this Script call =
and works perfect for me!
– Is there a way to also refer to Map ID inside this Script?
Something like $ gamemap(4).this.character(5).set_frame(“Pic_House”,1,3,4);
– (Because i want to use this Script Inside to a common event ..)
$gameMap.mapId() should do it
– Thanx for the FAST reply! :D
– I tried –> $gameMap.mapId(9).this.character(2).set_frame(“$Wheat1”,1,3,4);
– But it’s not working (Doing nothing)
Oh, I didn’t understand what you were trying to do, sorry. $gameMap.mapId() returns the map id number only. You can use that anywhere you could put the map id number. If you run the common event call from the event’s commands, inside the common event you should just be able to use move route ‘this event’ as normal
Ok I will try to fit this Info in my “Project-Issue”
Thanx Galv – It was an honour talking with you – I am watching you (Around rpg maker MV) Many many Years! Great Skills!
