I've seen a few footstep plugins when searching, but none of them appear to have a very common feature I've seen in other engines/games.

In my experience, a very common feature is to be able to specify several sounds for each terrain type, then to also have the game randomly choose a pitch variation between a min and max each time it plays a step. That way, if you have 3 sounds, and 20% pitch variation for each of them, you can walk 100 steps and it you don't notice a pattern.

Does anyone know if any of the MV plugins do this?-

See TheoAllen’s plug-in, linked in his post here: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/footsteps-se-when-walking.98822/

I haven’t used it, but a quick look suggests it supports terrain regions and that you can use a plug-in command to change the sound, including pitch. Combined with simply generating a random number and then using conditional to check that random number and assign a new pitch, would this do what you want?

could also use yanfly region common events, then within the common event, roll a variable and a series of conditional branches checking for results of the variable's random value, which can then play the sound effect desired, but with a different pitch for each result

Thanks for the suggestion; unfortunately that's RB for VX; I need a version for MV as stated in the thread tag.

Sorry! Completely missed that!
Thanks for being polite about it.

Perhaps Zerothedarklord’s suggestion of Yanfly’s plug-in is what you need then? I haven’t used that either though

I kind of want make a map that's just giant version of the player that's they're running around on. Either by stringing together multiple maps or just by shrinking the player sprite for those maps. Actually that might make a fun reveal... The player's on a normal looking map, but then as realization dawns on them it zooms out to show a much larger map that's a giant version of the player. :LZSexcite:
Do you like to practice level design? I do hahahaha! It's not from a specific game, it's just some tests...Fase 1.png
I really need a better indicator of where you can jump up and down though I feel... otherwise I like how this turned out for the first part of the first dungeon of the game.
@Shaz needs to make a website for his plugins. (it can be done easily for free with google sites.) I can't find a database of them anywhere!
