First off, I'm using MZ, not MV, but I can't find a board for that, so I'm hoping any solution for MV will work for MZ.

Basically, I have every enemy dropping one of 5 versions of a type of item, it drops every time, and is specific to the kind of enemy. But I also want to have a skill that will change that specific item to another of the possible versions, but only for that enemy in that battle. Is there a way to change a specific item drop into another of my choosing without a plugin? Or is there a plugin that can do what I want that I haven't found yet? Preferably free as this is a personal project and I'm hoping to not spend a dime on it.

If it's relevant, the item type in question will always be in the first slot in the drop list in the database. Theoretically I can do it by eventing with each troop, but I'd prefer to have the change attached to the skill, keeps everything neater that way.

Looks pretty robust, but offhand it doesn't look QUITE like what I'm wanting without some coding workaround. I'm somewhat passable at programming, but plugins that let you code stuff tend to get me in trouble since I'm learning both javascript and MZ's system at the same time. I think I might attempt to make a plugin to do what I'm wanting. Kinda wanted to dip my toes into plugin coding anyway, and this might help familiarize me with javascript AND MZ's code while I'm at it.

Thanks for the reply, though! I'll keep it in mind if my own attempts turn into too much of a headache.

It seems that I have to change the order with which I make the fantasy games on my bucket list, because the intended title is used as a story element in the first two games in the line, and somebody else might take the title for their own game because the term uses real words. I can't risk going over the apparent three year limit for registering trademark ahead of time.
I am interested in collaborations so if you like my art, hit up my messages! :wub

Making good progress with the second chapter. :)

Still work in progress.

(Real life, it is chronically the fourth chapter that I am making.)

They spent their whole life to build that wall and the empire, an empire that enslaves them." :kaoswt2: I'm just going to turn it into a modern-day sad tale.
