  2. Damage formula based on equipped armor

    Hi. I would like to make an ability where the damage is increased if the user has no armor equipped. The damage formula is as follows: if has no armor equipped, the damage would be 110 + a.atk * 2 - b.def * 2. If the user is using an armor, that damage formula would be 55 + a.atk * 2 - b. def *...

    Thoughts on idea to obtain skills/ abilities

    I wanted to get some feedback on a possible game mechanic I'm thinking about implementing... So basically you learn new skills and gain new abilities by speaking to NPCs that have mastered that specific art thoughout the game... The main skills will be a sort of checkpoint before the player can...

    [MV] Ability that buffs 1 ally to debuff the user

    I wish to create an ability that buffs an ally's phys. defense, but debuffs the user's defense as a consequence. (A kind of transfer, but it'd be better to have the freedom to choose which stats to buff and debuff) The game doesn't seem to give me this option. I took a look at YEP's Skill Core...

    PC assigns new abilities buffs from multiple choice

    Hey guys, Sorry if this is a simple thing but I am super new to RPG Maker so any help is greatly appreciated. I'm working on a concept in my game where as players level up the wi receive a non activatable ability but something which will give them a passive buff. I THINK if I fumble around a...

    [Solved] Damage Skill That Also Heals

    Just like the title says. If I wanted to create a skill that did damage to enemies, I know how to do that, of course. But if I wanted to create a skill that damaged enemies and healed all allies for a percentage of their health, how would I do this? Thank you~ ~ Dragon

    [Solved] Critical Health Damage Skill

    *one last time* And lastly, there is an attack called "Last Stand" that I would like to be able to implement that deals high damage when in a critical state of health. Though whether I would like this to be passive or not is yet undetermined. Thank you so much, again, and I hope to get these...

    [Solved] Magic Depleting Heavy Attacks

    *copies & pastes again* Two more that are very similar to each other, are high damage attacks that I would like to have expend all magic points to use. Like how in FF XII using a quickening or summon depletes all of your magic as well. I may end up needing to create level tiers for these...

    [Solved~!] Passive Leech Health Skill

    *copies & pastes information* Another skill is something called "Soul Eater" and what I hope to do for this one that I have no idea how to accomplish, is for the user to heal 50% of their health on kill of an enemy. But in truth, I would like to figure out how to make this a passive ability...

    [Solved (More or Less)] Skill That Deals Recoil Damage

    As per recommendation, I have decided to make separate threads for each skill type. *decides to copy & paste* I have a skill a character uses called "Leap of Faith" that is a 50% success rate that deals double damage. That is as far as I have gotten, however, because what I want for it is to...

  13. Changing forms/class during battle.

    Hi everyone, straight to the point I want my main character to be able to activate an ability (only during battle) which allows them to change their form into another character (essentially change actor or change class). I was wondering how to do this, but also how to have the actor change back...

    RMMV A Dungeon Crawler with Monster Catching

    Hello! As the title states, I'm interested in making a dungeon crawler with monster catching. I will describe it as directed in the forum guideline and post a small proof of concept demo. Game Mechanics: The player will fill out a team of monsters and traverse various dungeons to proceed...
  15. How to make a 50/50 ability.

    In the game that I am trying to make, I am attempting to make it so that one of the characters has a starting move called "exuberant strike", which has a fifty percent chance to do two times the amount of damage that a regular strike would, but also has a fifty percent chance to stun the user...

    Spell overpower ability

    Is there a way to allow players to overpower spells, e.g. if a fireball spell costs 25 mana, that is its minimum cost as using any less will cause the spell to fail, but when the player is about to cast the spell they are given an option how much mana they want to use, so if instead of 25 mana...

    Skipping a turn in combat.

    How does one inflict a condiction on one of their own characters AND deal damage to an enemy with the same ability in the same turn? From what I can see, it's only possible to inflict a condition on your enemy (and your enemy only) as you're attacking them or inflict a condition on yourself but...
  20. Cover ability, substitute flag, using a states instead of HP?

    So a common question I see from people is about how to make substitute work on allies at any HP, instead of just low HP. I was wondering the same thing for a while, until I found a great solution which I've been using. I found someone had posted that if you install this in your materials section...

I've just finished organizing music files from a music Humble Bundle I purchased a while ago (putting in specific themed playlists, deleting from playlists, deciding which games they'll be used for. etc.). I'm feeling pretty confident that the sound design for my games will be up to high standards. Sound design seems to be relatively under-discussed as a topic in game development imo.
So I just got back from SeaWorld and I'm back to working on my game. I'm stuck on Shadowstar, mainly due to needing two more princesses... I have all the canon and toy princesses, plus Sunset Shimmer just for kicks. I decided not to include Cadence since this isn't in that era. But... I'm going to have to design two OCs now.
I'm completely missing on this site :kaodes: How's everybody doing lately?
I'm looking at/working through a simple game tutorial. Town, dungeon, boss; town, dungeon, boss; etc. (Thanks, Yanfly!) I'm itching to make something complex but experience (and past disappointment!) tell me to go slow and learn.
