I'm pretty new with RPG Maker MV, so I just wanted to know a free alternative to Yanfly's Grid-Free Doodads plugin for lighting stuff (I want to make light emissions). Since I'm a cheapskate. Please do help me, sincerely from a newbie.

there isn't anything with the exact same functionality, but you can get something similar with https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/parallax-utils.103910/

if you want just lighting in general, community lighting is free

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll give it a look and try it out to see if it works!

https://quxios.github.io/plugins/QMap is pretty much the improved version of Doodads except you have to use it's editor. It not only places images at any pixel coordinate, but also at any Z. Plus it allows for spritesheet animations, collision, a breathing effect, tinting, scaling and opacity. It even allows objects to be tied to switches/variables/JS.... And if that's not good enough, it's also a fantastic parallax plugin. :LZSexcite:

May I ask a question, will that mean this will be more complicated than the doodads plugin? But I would assume that it will be more rewarding once mastered? I'm just new with this whole shebang

Is it more complicated than Doodads? Honestly it depends on how far you go down the rabbit hole with the other QPlugins. QMap itself is actually pretty simple, though some of it's features are tied to QSprite and QMovement. As for it being more rewarding? There's a video in my signature that shows off the most recent maps I made with it. I'll let you decide if that's rewarding or not. :LZSwink:

I see, I shall try do some research and test this out as well, and I will reply to you once I somewhat get the gist of the plugin, thanks for the recommendation!

here's another RPG Maker remake idea: "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties". I'll salute to whomever does this
I won't finish it today, I only will have time to work on that next Saturday, what a shame... :(
I made something for @LittenDev [as he requested]
It's been a weird while. I've been so torn down that even playing video games has been something I avoided. But I shouldn't forget two things. One, I love RPG Maker for a reason. Two, only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time.
