Creates a profession system for your game. Discover/learn professions, gain experience, and level up. Profession data can be used for things like restricting the player from harvesting resources if their level is not high enough, or many other uses.

  • Create professions for your player to level up
  • Use either an experience curve or hard-code experience for each level
  • Hide professions until the player learns them

How do you do fishing, crafting? is the level shared by party or separated by actor?

You would set up a profession for fishing/crafting/etc and then when the player does something related to that profession, you'd use the plugin commands to add exp/levels for those professions you have set up.

Professions are party wide, not separate for each actor.

@dabaili If you are using version 1.0.1 then there is a plugin command called "Get Profession Level" and it will ask you for the profession name and the variable you want to store the level in.

Hi all, I updated this plugin to also allow you to show a toast window when the profession is first discovered (previously toast functionality was limited to level ups only).

Version 1.0.2:
- Added option to display a toast window on discovery of profession

I have also added a demo for this plugin today in case anyone was confused on how to use it. The demo is playable in browser or able to be downloaded from the plugin's main page on my website: https://www.caspergaming.com/plugins/cgmz/professions/

Wow, casper667 that is amazing. Now the game developers can make the game like harvest moon where you are focusing on surviving and living off the land. Thank you.
Like this if you are confused of what I said.

Hi all, I released an update to this plugin today. This update requires CGMZ Core v1.5.0+.

Version 1.1.0:
- Added temporary buffs (or debuffs) when using items or plugin command
- Added ability to use text codes in profession descriptions
- Added ability to use custom icon image in place of big icon in display window
- Added option to change label text color
- Added option to use transparent windows
- Added option to use a custom scene background image
- Added plugin command to change description
- New professions are now loaded automatically in saved games without needing to use reinitialize plugin command

Side note with this update: unfortunately due to how the description used to be stored in previous versions, the new way of displaying the description with text codes may have weird spacing issues especially where new lines used to be previously. For saved games, you can use the "Set Description" plugin command to fix descriptions that are affected by this. New games should not have any spacing issue with descriptions.

Wonder how heavy of lifting it would be required to make this separate per actor and attach battle skill uses to it? Trying to find something along the lines of Fire User Profession use fire 1 magic 10 times to level it up, Level it up to lv5 and learn Fire 2, lv7 gives bonus to fire damage, lv25 critical chance boost etc etc. Using it as the background core of my job/class system instead of rigid classes. Combined with learn skills from equipment and AP I can more or less get it to work as long as I can get this to do that and for all of it to play nice together.

@deityshadow Thank you for suggestion, it is something others have requested before as well (though not the battle skills part). This plugin was not initially built with per-actor professions in mind so it will require a significant amount of work to get it how I want it to work, but it is on my to do list, probably not something to expect soon though.

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
