So I've begun the process of migrating my (relatively unknown I suspect!) plugin library over to MZ, and figured I'd start with this one.

This plugin lets you customize how MP appears for each individual actor class via note tags:




List of things it can do, all on a per-actor-class basis:
  • Change the colors of the MP gauge
  • Change the colors and label of the MP cost displayed for skills
  • Modify how RecoverAll behaves in relation to HP and MP
  • Add HP and MP recovery (or loss) after battle
  • Allow MP to be recovered when taking damage, filterable by type
  • Allow MP to be recovered when dealing damage, filterable by type
  • Displays MP, TP, and HP (plugin required) costs properly together when both are part of a skill's cost
  • Hide MP regen
You can find this plugin in my RMMZ library here

I've been waiting for this :MV3:

If you port your tagstats I'll scream... out of sheer excitement.

Thank you for all the work @Aesica , your plugins are always pure 100% unadulterated QUALITY.

The MV version of AES_BattleCore seems to work in MZ right out of the box, minus the ApplyZoneEffects plugin command. There's a bit of cleanup I'd like to do before putting out a "proper" MZ version, but you should be able to use most of its features (including tag stats) right now. :)

Wonderful plugin, it works like a charm, thank you very much!
Do you intend to create a similar plugin for TP? :)

Just implemented this in my game. It is excellent thank you.

At the moment no, but mainly because TP's less flexible without tweaking more things that may cause conflicts with other plugins.

Well this is nice to have. Question though. Is it possible to make is so that the MP bar works like an HP buffer until it reaches zero? (think starcraft protoss shields)

Not with this plugin, no. If there's any other plugins floating around that allow for a "convert mp into a shield" state, it should work with it though.

Thanks for the plugin. I noticed that it looks like the "After battle recovery" is triggering twice. It seems to do 1 pulse on victory, and then a second pulse when the party returns to the map screen.

Is it possible to set different icons for Max MP (as per the VisuStella core plugin) that differs by actor/class?

I'm not sure, but I don't think so. If there's some way in the VS plugins to set conditional checks for displaying the icon and you're comfortable with a little javascript, you could always create a custom note tag, such as <Custom MP Icon: 12345>, then check for that note tag with something like:

whateverTheirIconVariableIs = +user.currentClass().meta["Custom MP Icon"] || 0;

Replace "0" with whatever you want the default MP icon to be and whateverTheirCustomIconVariableIs with, well what the name implies. It'd be in one of their JS: asdf plugin parameters, but I'm not sure which.

That's the best I can do given the obfuscated nature of the VS plugins. Sorry.

Spooktober Spooktacular Game Jam Winners announcements start now! Live on stream! See who won!
so, I've begun the process of restructuring my game's base setup entirely after feeling disheartened with progress and talking to a friend. I think I'm headed in the right direction now.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I'm so excited! I've been exploring MZ a little, and I just downloaded Effekseer to make new animations. I have experience in 3D animation software, so I'll be pretty good at the whole "particle" thing. My first game on MZ will be Fantasy Force--starring a griffin, a dragon, and a pegasus fighting against the Dragon of Darkness.
