    Weapons as "Incomparables".

    So, I have been working on my game for about a month now, and one of the ideas I had in mind since the beginning was to provide better character customization and realism at the same time. The way I have decided to do this was through "weapons as incomparables". What I mean by this, is that...

    Variable HP Costs to Increase Skill effectiveness.

    Recently for the Dark Knight class I was working on, I was trying to ebb out a way to make it so the Dark Knight's abilities can be enhanced by spending an amount of HP not set in stone, but rather, variable based on the player's input. Example; Skill: Soul Eater "A skill that uses some...

    Balancing Lich/Undead States

    I thought it would be cool if it was possible to equip a skill (via Yanfly's plugins + Tricks & Tips) that turns the character undead.  So far I can make the character undead (so healing damages them), and I also have the same state grant immunity to dark damage while causing a weakness to holy...

    Plugin Based Mechanics

    So I'm not sure where this goes as I just joined the forums. As a preface, I was gifted RPG Maker MV by a friend when it was on sale a couple of weeks ago and have been playing around with it since. I've downloaded a few plug ins and want to make a mechanic based around one of them. The plugin...

  11. 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...

    Job System Theory, Design, and Mechanics

    Job systems  - wherein the characters have the ability to assume a number of different class roles throughout the game, and frequently can learn abilities that they can use while in other classes.  Final Fantasy provides some of the quintessential examples, but similar systems appear in many...

    Skill Tree Theory and Design: Size, Leveled Skills, Balance, etc.

    Skill / talent trees are a way of granting the player choice in developing their character, particularly within the confines of a fixed class.  Yet balancing them is rather difficult.   How many skills does a good skill tree have?  Should skills be purchased with skill points from level ups...

    First Game Question

    So I know it's possible, but it's somewhat daunting as a first-time game-maker: how do you make an attack hit harder if the enemy has a low agility? I have a lumberjack class in my game, and created a skill called "Tree Feller" and when I imagine the skill being used for its "true intent" I...
