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

Observation Log 1 on the planet of "RPGMAKERWEB": Local RMXP community seems to have very few survivors. Their script tech-level is in the early Stone Age(about the same as 66RPG in 2007).

May try to use the "I Come in Peace" protocol if encounter any hostiles.
Using hiddenone's QTE tutorial I've been able to setup a simple fishing system. Instead of just the pointer moving, the goal moves as well. Holding the action button scrolls the pointer and pressing the down arrow key hooks the fish. The speed of both is variable as well as the number of successful hooks needed for a catch.
When someone helps you solve a problem, it's good to report the thread so it can be closed, but it's also nice to go back and post in the thread to let them know their suggestion actually worked. And, you know, to say thanks for helping.
