Using MZ. I have a clock face as part of the tileset. I want to set a random time by using two Show Picture commands for the hour and minute hands and rotate those hands to that random time. This works well enough as long as the player stands in place. Obviously, I want the hands to be bound to the clock face and not follow the player around the screen. I've seen a few plugins for MV, most notably Bind Pictures to Map.js, but I don't see a ported version for MZ. I looked at the Visustella plugins. I read a resource spotlight for VisuStella which said "The Core Engine is where numerous minor tweaks and new quality of life adjustments to MZ reside. It includes bug fixes such as allowing party members who are set to auto-battle to use their skills as well as new features to let you bind pictures to a map’s scrolling instead of being bound to the screen." But, for the life of me, I can't find any such plug-in command. Can someone recommend a plugin that does this? Thank you.

I found this excerpt on the wiki page of the Core Engine:
"If a Parallax has a ! at the start of its filename, it is bound to the map scrolling. The same thing now happens with pictures. If a Picture has a ! at the start of its filename, it is bound to the map's scrolling as well. "

You. are. AWESOME! I thought I had hunted all over the wiki looking for some kind of directions. Works perfectly. Thank you so much.

Here's this for an idea I might do: A Touhou RPG set in the universe of the Hoi4 mod "The New Order: Last Days of Europe". Expect BurgSys Yukari, the Great Fairy Trial, and funni clock Flandre
The thing I don't like about VRMMORPG anime is that they're unrealistic. I mean, we know we have a lot of ping issues, latency, and desync. Would be funny if you shoot a player and they immediately teleport somewhere because "ha, your internet suck!".
I've decided to try and be more social and less nervous about engaging. I'm always over thinking things - from now on when I'm worried or don't get something I'll just ask.
Sometimes a mechanic that is meant to add challenge is just annoying. Even the Final Fantasy games did not completely escape this pitfall of design. (FF8 draw system I'm looking at you - grrrr)
starting working on the sprites for one of my games major antagonists finally. here's the first frame of his chanting motion in battle.
