    What *exactly* does Luck do?

    The engine only says "it controls thinks like status effects". Does anyone actually know, definitively, what Luck stat does in VX Ace? This would better help me utilize it in-game properly.
  2. Luck Stat Clarification

    Hey all. I'm trying to make luck in my game the primary way to increase status effect chance on your abilities, but I'm not sure exactly what the formula "Math.max(1.0 + (user.luk - target.luk) * 0.001, 0.0)" is doing. I know that it means every 100 points of difference between your luck and...

    How to make LUK effect in battle more relevant?

    Hi everybody. When I was working on my project I couldn't avoid to notice of all states, Luck is probable the most expendable parameter. You could just change the luck effect in script editor (I'm using VX Ace) and it'd have no effect at all in the game. Of course, that doesn't mean the stat...
  5. Questions about the combat mechanics

    How does Luck affect the probability of a status effect triggering? How does the game recognize a positive status effect or a negative one? How does Agility determine combat order? Is it in order of highest to lowest or is there a random number thrown in somewhere? Lastly, I receive no...
  6. Question regarding luck and effects.

    Hopefully I'm writing this in the right place... So I am currently looking to change the effect of luck in my game, as I am sure many people have done before. My game uses low number power creep, in that statistical values are pretty small, so having a single point in strength causes a...

    Ignoring Luk (Luck) on positive states!

    Hey everyone,  I have been messing around with the "Luck" (LuK) parameter, and apparently, having a high amount of luck also nullifies the probability of positive states, such as hp regen. Especially if you use custom evaluation codes, such as yanflys lunatic state effects, luck has not...

    What does this Crit formula do?

    Formula: rate = (user.cri + (user.luk/100)) * (1 - target.cev - (target.luk/100)); I'm using Yanfly's Critical Control script to edit the rate of crits. I've added (user/target.luk / 100) to the equation. In the scenario that the enemy has 100 luk and the right side of the equation becomes...

    How do you get a random chance event?

    So, I want to get a random chance event. I'm making an item called Mystery Box that you can obtain or buy from a Merchant. The problem is there's no RANDOM CHANCE stuff. There no pre-made plugins, and without that there is no Mystery boxes. So how? I mean something like, 1 in three...

    Hi, I'd like to make a "Wheel of Fortune" kind of skill, but I have no idea how to make the script/common event or where to put it/how to call it. To be more specific, I want to know how to make a skill that can do at least one of these: A - cause damage based on a random element B -...

  13. Question if a few thinks can be do through events + other

    Hello I like to play around with events, the thing is I don't know if I can do some stuff using events, maybe I did not realize that option x exist or how I need to do it for it to work. I really on events because at least I do understand them unless scrips were I don't understand anything...
  14. Question if a few thinks can be do through events + other

    Hello, I want to do some stuff in my game and want to know if I can do them by using events without the use of scrips. If I can do them only through scrips please tell me and I will search on my own for it ( I'm using Yanfly's scrips). 1. Is and event that permanently change someones...
  15. Custom Hit/Avoid and Crit Formula

    I'm currently working on an entirely revamped system for the stats in my game, but I have exactly 0 programming experience with Javascript. Basically what I'm trying to do is create a system where every stat point is of equal value to any other stat point. So a point in attack is equally...

    "Default" Parameter Effects? (Agility, Luck, Others(?))

    Hey everyone, I remember in VX Ace's manual it laid out the "default" hard-coded effects of Agility and Luck in determining initiative and ailment chance - but I can't find that info in the MV manual. Am I just missing it? Is it the same as VX? Is there a way to check? I change the base...

    Hello, I have a doubt, is there a way to remove the effect the luck state has when applying a state, exactly in which part of the script can I find this in the default scripts (assuming I can find it in those)? In case you're asking yourself why do I want to change that, well, I'm using Yanfly...

    [SOLVED] Change Luck's Effect

    Howdy! I just started working on a game through RPG Maker VX Ace, and I noticed that Luck (LUK) determines the change that you are affected by a state or not? I was wondering if I could change that? I want Luck to determine whether you can hit, crit and dodge. If anyone could help me change...
