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.

That awkward moment when you're talking about thinking about writing a limited shop stock plugin for MZ and then find out you already wrote one...last May. My memory is so bad.
When I open my project and I'm like, hell yeah.
Some drawings I made in Lapis, one day I intend to involve them in some RPG Maker project.
* maybe two wall frames
*or some sprite flower tiara, or maybe it inspires someone to do something.

Do you happen to have any of the two lockpicking minigames in RPG Maker MZ format?
I'd love to use them both in my game, and the only ones I've found are yours, but they are in MV format. Strange no one has made a single one for MZ yet. I am hoping you have - but just on the down-low.
