Battle Formation
By Lecode

Introduction

Well, JosehSeraph requested an advanced battle formation plugin here and I found the idea interesting.

So I gladly accepted it. It's still in WIP (obviously) and since I'm working on it on my free time, it'll take some time.

Released.

Current features

- Battle Formation Menu

- Bonus for each actor and for the whole party depending of the selected formation

About the configuration

Well, it's the tricky part. I'm currently using a json file in the /data folder to read

all the data about each formations but it's not really user friendly.

So perhaps i'll make an UI but it's time consuming and i'm not so motivated to do so.

Planned features

You tell me ?

Haha. Perhaps it's a good idea but I'm not sure if I understand what you're talking about.

you are not sure what's a battle grid? 

take in example game like emeridia dungeon

and for sure valkerie profile or cross edge

you have a "grid" and the character move on it ....

I am not sure how to explain this in english

battle formation can be dependant of battle grid

and this not a TBS who are like fire emblem

it's a Sideview battle grid where you can change the actor and inputing skill range ect

inputing the actor to have a battle formation option will force all the sprite to change their position in a specific position o nthe grid it's also easier to use battle formation with grid

I was hoping someone would make exactly this. I'd be cool if this was released as is with no UI for setting up the grid itself initially because it's not entirely NECESSARY, just helpful for people who aren't used to JSON.

@nio: I see, I understand now. I like the idea. And it's fun.

@kuoushi: Yeah I think i'll release for now that version, and perhaps I'll release another version for the battle grid.

I absolutly love this idea, the configuration in the json file isn´t that hard either, or?

In previous RPG Makers we had no shiny configuration menu ;D

Or am I missunderstanding something?

This looks great. I dont mind working with json as long as adding formation is easy.

It would be great, as an addition, to be able to learn new formations in game with items or events.

Looking forward to this plugin, more for now someone could teach me how to change the position of the actors in the battle , placing them around the screen without any buff .

Thanks everybody.

Normally I'll release it this weekend.

I absolutly love this idea, the configuration in the json file isn´t that hard either, or?
Yup, it's not that hard. We just need to follow a special syntax. For example put a comma in the right place.

It would be great, as an addition, to be able to learn new formations in game with items or events.
Yes. You can lock / unlock / hide / unhide formations as you wish.

If you can make bonus leader.. :p
So beside party bonus from formation
The member will get bonus from who lead the party :3
Yeah, like on Summoners War Sky Arena :p

Sure i'll add this feature.

more for now someone could teach me how to change the position of the actors in the battle , placing them around the screen without any buff .
I'll make a proper tutorial when i'll release it !

If you do add in the formation change mid battle (please do itttttt), do you have intentions of making it consume the whole parties turn, or not? Preferable not if possible.

Just a little suggestion.
