    I've been hunting about in the import/export tab in RPG Maker VX Ace, and I'm having trouble finding the weather effects (rain, snow, etc.).

    I'd like to export it so that I can make my own effects in GIMP and import them back in. So here's what I'm wondering: Where can I access the weather effects?

    Are they exportable at all? Are they some file that's part of VX Ace itself? Where can I find them? Hopefully this won't involve scripting, otherwise I'm in the wrong forum.

    The default weather effects are actually generated via script and do not draw from given images.

    To use one from an image, you will need a script.

    No, they're not exportable.


    CCOA did a script for XP for different types of weather - was basically a particle generator type of thing. But even that built the images by drawing pixels in appropriate colours, rather than using an image.


    I've never had a use for it, so I don't know if it was ever ported to Ace or if there's something similar in Ace. It might be a starting point if you can script.

    Generated from a script? I'd never have guessed! Looks like it's time for me to hit the script editor. Thanks for you guys's help!
