So I´m having trouble on how to change the boat graphic to the character graphic.


This is the scenary. I want to put the character on the boat and when the boat reached that event that it's selected, a cutscene happens.

I have created an event to transfer the player to the map I want. The only problem is that what it shows is the boat and not the player. This is how it looks:

So how should I do it so the player shows instead of the boat? Because a boat on a boat just looks weird xD

have the player exit the boat by event command directly before transfering.


However, the get on/off vehicle command only works if the player has something to get off to, so the boat needs to be facing land for that to work.


I suggest using a fadeout, transfer the boat to a place where the player can leave, exit and then transfer the player to that map before fading in on that map only.


It's a bit tricky in this sequence as you'll need to split commands - if you have problems, post what you have as screenshots after trying.

I have done this. It's in portuguese so I'll have to translate. I have defined the player movement route to transparent on, then get out of the vehicle and then transparent off.

Now the player shows but it can't move and the boat still appears bellow, like this:


I have the region restriction so that the player can move on those tiles...

I'm kinda new to rpg maker so I still don't know how to do some stuff like split commands.

I've done exactly this, leaving a Boat on the ocean to join the Deck of a Mapped Ship. Here's the transfer to the Deck, when sailing somewhere on the Ocean Map...

◆Play SE:Move1 (90, 100, 0)
◆Control Variables:#0017 Dumm_Region = Map ID
◆Control Variables:#0018 Dumm_X = Map X of Player
◆Control Variables:#0019 Dumm_Y = Map Y of Player
◆Control Variables:#0019 Dumm_Y += 1
◆Transfer Player:Ship_Deck (9,9) (Direction: Up)
◆Get on/off Vehicle
◆Set Vehicle Location:Ship, {Dumm_Region} ({Dumm_X},{Dumm_Y})



... and here's the return to the Boat on the Ocean Map...

◆Text:None, Window, Bottom
:    :Do you wish to return to sailing..?
◆Show Choices:Yes, No (Window, Right, #1, #2)
:When Yes 
  ◆Play SE:Move1 (90, 100, 0)
  ◆Control Variables:#0018 Dumm_X -= 1
  ◆Transfer Player:{Dumm_Region} ({Dumm_X},{Dumm_Y}) (Direction: Right)
  ◆Get on/off Vehicle
  ◆
:When No 
  ◆
:End



The 'Y+=1' when saving the Boat position is to place the Boat in a position where the Hero can step onto it. The return X-=1 does this, too.


Here'a video of the result...








Any good to you..?

The first step worked, he can now go on the ship without any problems. Thanks! :D


What isn't working is when I want to return to the boat on the sea. The player doesn't need to choose to navigate the ship in my case, because it's a cutscene and after they are done talking the scene should automatically transfer to the boat on the sea.


I have done this. I have defined that control variable, the transfer and the get in/get out of the vehicle.

This is what it looks like:

The map disappeared and now it shows a diferent ship and when I enter it the zeppelin appears on the same spot as the boat...very confusing :/

@RoseStark...


Look closer; you'll see that it's 'Dumm_X -=1' (minus equals 1...).


Check the Sender Event, to be sure that you've faithfully recorded that Map ID and the X/Y coordinates correctly. It looks as if the X/Y are correct, except for the 'X-=1' part; are you sure that the Map ID was correctly stored..? The 'Ship' Map has not, in fact, 'disappeared', it's just that the Hero has been transferred elsewhere. Check the value (using 'F9'...) of Dumm_Region to be sure that it corresponds to the Map ID you wish to return to.


To be continued..?

I ended up fixing it another way. I couldn't transfer the player to the right map...I still have a lot to learn about control variables.


Anyways, thanks for the help! :)

Why the heck do I keep comparing my games to ones made by huge companies? I'd love them to have that level of polish but I'm simply not good enough.
Hell of a day at the London Games Market! :D
