MZ Visual Novel Choices

FEATURES
This plugin allows you to display the ‘Show Choices’ selection in a more visual novel style layout and using a graphic for the background and hover state.

MZ Step Effects

FEATURES
This plugin allows you to setup step effects for the player and step effects for events.
‘Step effects’ are settings that are assigned to a terrain tag or to a region id. These settings are run each time a character steps on a tile with terrain tag or region id that has a step effect assigned for it. Each step effect can do one or more of the following:
– Spawn an event at the character’s location (Galv’s Event Spawner plugin required)
– Run a specified common event
– Play a sound effect
– Run script code

This could be used on maps that might require widespread functionality that would normally require lots of events or parallel process (such as large maps that you would like player transfers on all edges). I’m sure there are other creative uses you will find for this functionality.

MV Image Cache

FEATURES
A simple image pre-loading plugin that enables to to specify images from folders within /img/ folder to pre-load (pre-cache) when the game is loading or to use a script call to cache images during game before they are needed.
This can be useful as RPG Maker MV loads images into memory as soon as they are needed during gameplay but sometimes this can cause issues such as images flashing blank for a moment, lag, or sometimes not loading at all.

MV Shadow Darken

FEATURES
A basic plugin that allows you to specify regions that will be in shadow. These regions will make the player and events fade darker and lighter as they move from shadow to light (similar to Suikoden 2 for those who have played that).
This plugin may not be compatible with other plugins that also change the blend color of map events. Shadows will have to be placed manually, it does not automatically place shadows either.

MV Screen Zoom

FEATURES
This plugin allows you to zoom the screen to a certain x,y pixel location, scale and taking a certain duration to do it. Only map and map sprites will be affected by the zoom – window message and other scenes will not. The zoomed screen can be moved around by calling the script again with different x,y position or scale.

NOTE: This is a SCREEN zoom plugin, it only changes the camera zoom of the screen. It doesn’t scroll the map or allow you to see more of the map than the screen size permits normally. So for example, if you zoom out smaller than default 100% scale there will be black around the map.

MV Weapon Proficiency

FEATURES
Actors have a weapon proficiency for each weapon type. This weapon proficiency can raise the hit chance, crit chance or have an effect on damage with a change to the damage formula for physical attack skills while they are wielding a weapon of that weapon type.

Weapon proficiency for the currently wielded weapon can be increased by attacking in combat or manually via script command. Each class can have different maximum proficiency for each weapon type. An animation can play during battle when an actor’s weapon proficiency skill increases.

Players can see their weapon proficiency in the default status menu or in Yanfly’s status menu if either of these are set in the plugin settings.

MV Screen Buttons

FEATURES
Add buttons to the screen on specified or all maps that can be set to emulate button presses, run script code or run a common event (press and hold or triggered). Create or remove any number of buttons during the game.
Includes a setting to disable map mouse-click movement if you wish to use buttons for arrow keys (example in demo).
Can enable/disable buttons during game or have buttons disappear or stay during events such as ‘Show Text’ dialogue.

Keyboard can not control these buttons, they are for mouse or touch activation only.

MV Tools

FEATURES
This plugin creates a tool system, where the player can cycle between items that are designated as tools and press a button to use the tool that is selected on the screen.
The basis behind this plugin is to allow players to event what happens when a tool is used, giving the player script calls to use to assist them with tool functionality. Each tool activates a common event to control this.
This plugin requires database and eventing knowledge.

MV Simple Crops

FEATURES
This plugin allows the player to plant and grow crops in designated plots by selecting seeds from their inventory. It’s labelled as simple crops because the gameplay is simple, not because it’s simple to set up. You’ll need to use eventing and database item knowledge to control how it works.
When paired with my MV Tools plugin, you can set up tools to control planting/watering and other manipulation of the crops (also with eventing).

MV Quest Log

FEATURES
Another quest log plugin! Just to give you guys more options.
Create quests with objectives and display each as complete or failed as the quest goes on. Quest details are stored in a .txt file within your project.
Sort quests into categories that can be expanded/hidden by the player as desired.
Use script calls to check results of quests and objectives to potentially save on switches/variables.
Player can track a quest, making it appear in the quest log when no other quest is selected to quickly reference it during game.
Quest update notification can be done manually or automatically if using Galv’s Timed Message Popups (included in demo as example).

MV Fishing Mini Game

FEATURES
This plugin adds a new fishing mini game to your project similar to that of Breath of Fire 2’s. This plugin is not plug-and-play and requires setting up. It may be difficult for new users.

– Customise a range of fish attributes to change how they behave such as bait they eat, speed, difficulty to reel in (and more)
– Customise each fishing spot’s backgrounds and music
– Add specific fish or objects or randomize them for each fishing spot. Use eventing to add quest items to catch from the water.
The demo contains examples of some things you can do.

How to Use
– Copy the “GALV_Fishing.js” file into your project’s /js/plugins/ folder.
– Activate plugin using the ‘Plugin Manager’
– Create a new folder: /img/fishing/
– Read the help file and examine the demo to learn how it works

You’ll notice that the RTP doesn’t come with many useful fishing icons (to use for rods and baits), and there’s not a whole lot of fish for you to use included in the demo – you’ll need to source or make your own resources to use.
The demo fish were created by Matt Beer.

MV Extra Agility Turn

FEATURES
Much like Breath of Fire 3, Battlers with a high AGI parameter can get extra turns between normal battle turns. This is based on a % amount higher a battler is than the average agility of the opposing team. These extra turns do not advance states/poison/regen etc.

This is not compatible with battle systems that modify turns (such as ATB or immediate action systems).

MV Manual Level Up

FEATURES
This plugin changes how level ups work in your project. Instead of levelling up normally when a character reaches the required exp for next level, the player will instead be required to manually level them up from a new scene that can be accessed via the status screen or script call.

The manual level up screen displays skills and parameters that will be acquired as well as a number of points the player can spend to boost chosen parameters. Each parameter can have one point placed in it which will increase it by a designated amount (which can vary for different classes).
