Can you collect objects like coins in an RM game? Would that be a good feature? If so, please tell me about it. How would it work?

Hmmm...its pretty common feature, I think? You just place an event and make an...event with it. Like you have to collect 100 buckets in order to unlock the premium KFC Bucket Boss. You just place buckets all over the place and make an event where you touch them, and tey disappear after that and theyre added to your Bucket List...

I've moved this thread to MV Support. Thank you.



I assume you're asking people to tell you how to do it. It isn't clear if you just want a discussion of what form collection quests could take.

@Shaz No I am asking of what form collecting the items could take, not how to do it. Please return the topic to Game Mechanics.

There are tons of games that do this that you could look to for ideas.

Sometimes it's nothing but an achievement. Other times it leads to turning in the items for a unique weapon or something, or unlocking a party member or dungeon.

Is that what you're asking?

I did this in my last game. It was just for an end-game achievement. I placed 8 hidden gems around all of my maps and set a conditional branch with variables and a message indicating how many of the 8 you found.

You might want to check out the term 'Collectathon'
(here's a search https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?search/1498973/&q=collectathon&o=date )

or even specifically this Topic:

Definitely possible. I've played several RM games that had collectables. They usually end up giving you a reward if you collect them all or 90% of them. Then at the end right before the credits they tend to mention how many you have found, so you can do better next time/see how many you missed.

Something like DQ always did since III, I like collecting mini medals because the prize is quite worth like weapon that cant be found at store or special armor etc. also the collection was tier based, so u got your prize immediately when you reach some numbers.
