Like a way to make healing skills bypass substitute? My tank keeps stealing heals from weak characters and it's very rude. Items can still get through.

Was curious about this so I googled Substitute healing issue and got a few threads for MV but the solution might still be the same given how similar MV and MZ are.

Here's an example thread but they all say to change Healing skills Hit Type to "Certain Hit" which should bypass substitute.

Your healing/beneficial spells should be Certain Hit, anyway, unless you want things like magic evasion to apply to them (some few games do, but you should only do it intentionally, understanding the mechanics).

Thanks guys! I searched for 'substitute blocks heal' but that didn't give me anything. I had them set to magic. Can close!

Google is much more effective than the forum search tool (or pretty much any forum's search, it's not dissing this particular site).

If you Google "RPG Maker MV substitute heal" you'll find 3 or 4 threads here about it. I hope that's helpful next time you're stuck for something!

I tried Google I swear, just didn't know how to word it. Sometimes different brains help

I used the same wording you quoted in your post, with the addition of RPG Maker :guffaw:

But it's all good, I'm not criticizing you for making the thread, just pointing out that search engines work better than the forum search tool, which many people don't realize.

Doing clean-up on tall-ified sprites, filling in pixel by pixel where the stretching warped the image, feels incredibly tedious but also highly rewarding when one zooms out and the sprite looks even better than before.
I found this app on the playstore and I'm loving it, it's very good for organizing project ideas
hmm one of those days where there's a lot to work on with my game... annnnnd I have no idea what I wanna do. most of it tho, involves drawing lol. either enemies or NPCs.
I'm going back to the default RTP, in the interest of getting it done. FSM is lovely but slow to work with and has tall doors. And switching to tall sprites would mean a lot of franking, and also the horses will be small.
I think I developed a stalker trauma (stalkerfobia?) because of my previous work publishing games on Steam. :(
