Arty's Follower Vehicles v1.1
by Artyrambles

Introduction
This plugin allows you to define vehicle graphics for your followers! Whenever your player uses a vehicle, your followers will now also use their own - or "disappear", or use a default vehicle graphic you set up.

Features
- define actor vehicle graphics through notetags
- make actors without graphics "disappear" or give them a default vehicle
- optional alternative images when the player is moving/standing

How to Use
It's really easy to set up - just define a "blank" image in the plugin parameters, and then give your actors simple notetags. (You can find an example blank graphic here. Just save that and use it.)

The notetags are the following:
<vehicleNameAlt:filename> <vehicleIndexAlt:index>

Just replace "filename" with the name of a graphic in your "img/characters" folder, without quotation marks and without the file extension. Replace "index" with a number according to the sprite's index. Here's an illustration of which sprite has which index on a standard spritesheet:

There's a few settings in the plugin parameters to customize how you want it to work. For example, you can disable "blank" graphics to make the followers without a notetag remain the same.

You can also enable "alt" graphics that will allow you to add alternative graphics to your follower vehicle. These alternative graphics will be displayed whenever the player is moving, and the "normal" graphics will be displayed when the player is standing still.

Plugin Download
Grab it here on my github!

Terms of Use
Free to use for commercial and non-commercial games. Please credit "Arty".

Support
I am open to suggestions how to improve this plugin. If it's within the realm of the possible (for me) I can implement changes.
If you find a bug, please let me know.
If your game crashes, please try starting a new game (aka don't load an existing save). If it still crashes, please press F8 (or F12) to open the dev console and post a screenshot of the log.

Author's Notes
Right now, this plugin only allows you to define one normal and one alt graphic for your followers, so it doesn't take into account different player vehicles. I might add this functionality in the future!
Also please note that I was using VictorSaint's Custom Vehicles plugin to get the screenshot at the very top of the thread. It allows you to create your own vehicles (for example, a horse). I can recommend it, but it's not required!
