So i want the troops of a map to change depending on the weather. For example, during clear weather, a Slime and Feralball appear as enemies. But when the weather changes to rain, Frogfaces appear instead of Feralballs, and when the weather is snow, Snowmanglers appear instead of Frogfaces or Feralballs.

Is there any plugin that changes the troops on a map depending on the weather? Preferably with a notetag like <snowTroop:x>, <stormTroop:x>, <rainTroop:x>, and <clearTroop:x>,with the x being the troop id.

(btw, on a map with a rainTroop notetag, the troop specified only appears during rain, clearTroop is only for clear weather, and so on)

Depending on how you have your enemy encounters set up, you may not need a plugin for this.

If you're using a plugin to provide random weather effects, you could see if there is anyway to link a switch to the various weather effects. Then use the switches to address the enemy troops if you're using visible enemy encounters.

There are potentially a lot of ways to do this depending on how you get the weather effects and how you handle encounters.

Galv has a random encounter condition plugin here. So if you have a way to link your weather to switches or variables, it could work for you.

HIme has a plugin that lets you link events/common events to random encounters here.

So like I mentioned, this will probably have a lot to do with how your weather effects are handled in your game.

I'd prefer an easier and faster way to do it, though.

Well if you're looking for an easy and fast way to do this... How do you handle weather effects in your game?

Are you looking for someone to write a brand new plugin to do what you want?

Are you looking for help on how to make plugins you're already using work together to do what you want?

edit: I ask because I can't think of any plugins that handle both weather and enemy encounters within the same plugin.

So basically, the way i handle weather is any time a player enters the world map, a hidden variable chooses if the map will be normal, rain (rain weather, with different monsters), or night (tinted screen, also with other monsters). The tint and weather will only last for that map, and disappear when the player leaves the map.

Well, other than my previous suggestion to use Galv’s plugin that lets you link encounters to variables, I’m out of ideas. Sorry

And back. Trying to work online with no internet for 1.5 days was...interesting. I felt like a character in a old Sierra game trying to find internet due to all the hoops I had to jump through just to get online for work.
grief... if MV didn't have certain plugins already, I think I'd upgrade to MZ. seeing like 10 MV plugins in 1 MZ one is hilariously convenient lol.
Have you already checkes out my mapping tutorial on the blog? I would love to hear your feedback and things you'd like to see in the future!

one of character for my upcoming game idk how to design o_O

Designing patches that can 'augmented' to clothing based armor. Such good fun. A bit time consuming due to the need to create image displays, but the patches are limited so it's not too tiring.
Note: lol, posting this made me find a couple mistakes.
