    Should I include a dating sim in my game?

    Okay, so context! I've seen some game ideas that utilize a dating and romance system, and I'm wondering if that would be a good idea! Kinda like how in Miitopia, your party members being best buddies gives them new abilities. I was thinking that the characters say different stuff when on breaks...

    Rock-paper-scissors inspired battles. Your thoughts?

    After a long while away from game making, I decided to check my old drafts and choose one to work on again. I've reworked the characters and story quite a bit, but I've realized that my battle system was kinda all over the place. I'm not good with complicated game mechanics (especially if...

    How to make a "leadership" level with no plugins_ Help

    Hello all, I'm new to the forums and I'm hoping someone here might help me figure this out. I'm trying to make the "luck" parameter for a character into a "leadership" parameter. I will use this parameter in my game to either allow or not allow a player to recruit NPC's based on the level of...

    Damage Reacting to State Stacking

    Hello, I'm back again with another unusual and very specific request. I'm looking for assistance with a battle mechanic. This time, I'm looking to make an attack have increased damage or cause multiple values of damage for each stack of a particular state. Ideally, I'd prefer the multiple...

  7. Earning money and passive income mechanic

    Hey guys, I'm hoping for some input on a mechanic I'd like to introduce in my RMMV game. A lot of things in my game such as upgrading skills, buying crafting recipes, upgrading items or weapons etc, all require spending gold. And a lot of gold at that. However, I don't simply want to just...

    How-To Question: Yanfly Engine, Opportunity Attacks

    Hi... I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, since it's not exactly a problem/issue that I'm having, but I couldn't find a good place to ask how-to questions... Sorry if I missed something and there is a dedicated place for it. In my game, I use... the majority of the Yanfly...

    Ideas and Mechanics for an Underwater Level

    Hello guys! I got to make a confession, I'm not that good at making levels/dungeons from the ground up, I usually take inspiration from an Song, an Enemy, kinda "Yeah, that song works perfectly in ______ level" or "Oh, that enemy would look amazing in a _______ dungeon" Well, that's today's...

  12. Absolute Values for Exp/Levels

    Hi folks. I used to dabble a lot with old versions of RPG Maker back in the day, making a few things for myself but this is the first time I am getting serious. I've been working a lot on art but am setting that aside to start building the skeleton of the systems I want to be using. It's been...

    Dungeons and Dragons flavored combat mechanics/spells?

    Hello there, since i started using a tactical battle system on my project (courtesy of Lecode!) I began experimenting a bit with different approachs to the system. First i tried something like fire emblem, but now im interested in trying out something similar to Baldur's gate or Icewind dale...

    Environmental Battle Mechanics

    I've been thinking about how rare it is for RPGs to have environments that actually affect combat. The difference between a frozen tundra and an active volcano doesn't really exist outside of the enemies you encounter, they're basically just backdrops for the battle. There will be plenty of ways...

    I'd Like to start out by saying this is planned as a puzzle mechanic. I have be scratching my head over how to do this, but I will do my best to describe the idea. Essentially, I am looking to have 2 separate parties of 1 character each. There is no level system and stats will be the same...

    Looking for some feedback...

    I've been working extensively on my own project and I feel it's coming along nicely. The game has a mixture of interactive key items/tools, choices that matter, and custom sprite animations/characterization. There are no random battles and currency is decently scarce. But I do have a few ideas...

    Help to balance weapons

    I would like to know what steps you all have taken to balance out the weapons portion of your game. For example, I don't like the idea of having 15 different swords that all get stronger from town to town. I like the idea of having a set amount of weapons, all of them different and useful in...

    Thoughts on this pseudo-class system.

    Going into this project, my primary goal was to make a combat system that was simple in execution - yet deep and complex in mechanics and customization. Allow me to deliberate. Imagine a combat system if you will that utilizes no elements, rather focusing purely on physical and magical damage...

    Visual novel&RPG Hybrids discussion

    Im curious to know the opinion of the community regarding the mechanics of this niche genre, almost exclusive to japan sadly. Personally i really loved games like Eiyuu senki (World conquest) In case you have never played one of these, it usually plays out like a regular JRPG (sometimes with...

One year and two days ago, I got RMMV. So far I have:

» Gotten Ideas™ from VXA’s music.
» Made a test project to teach myself the basics.
» Successfully done up a no-combat outline for Ideas™.
» Entered the Boss Battle Build Bout.
» Burned out for over seven months after trying the One Map Challenge.
» Found my groove again about a month ago.

And it feels good to be back on track again.
Let there be light!
