Hey guys. I wanted to change encounter troop types, by region ID, while on the world map. My world map does have random encounters.

In previous rpg makers we had scripts or plugins for region ID. Can we still call an event by region ID right now?

I imagine this would be useful to know for other’s games too.

thanks happy halloween

I use Geomancy and I set a Parallel process in each map to read the ubication of the character and keep it in a variable:

Then, in a common event I set what I need.

Maybe this can be useful for you, or anyone can give us another idea/pluggin.

That sounds excellent. You think there would be any slowdown on a big world map with a parallel process? I could make it change the encounters. Then it would constantly do it.

@BrentBAM Could your idea come up better for me?

I don't' know, but I did a common event as parallel process instead of an event in each map, and it seems to work good for me.
I think the problem is when there are too many parallels more than the size of the map. But I'm not an expert, so maybe anyone can help you better.

If the map is too large (100x100 or greater) many events in parallel can cause slowness.

I would like to better understand your need to try to resolve this through scripting.

With script I believe that the performance at the time of execution does not suffer slowness.

I would like to make it so that whenever I walk onto a Region ID, it calls a common event to occur.

So basically a region ID triggers an event.

In the case of the world map, as an example, I will have a region that triggers monster encounters, and other region for different monsters.

There was an MV plugin by Yanfly for Region Events. Basically, I was wondering if we were able to do the same thing in MZ.

The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
so like with the whole 'familiarity breeds contempt thingy', how are you supposed to tell if your title screen/battle music gets really tedious after a few dozen plays or if you're just personally hella sick of it?
