Good morning!


I have a request for a plugin I've long since looked for and considered a nice modern "quality of life" improvement for RPGs. That is, the game's difficulty and random encounter rate can be changed at any time with an option in the menu. 


One game that had this feature was Bravely Default. By going to the menu in that game, you could change the difficulty at any time and also set the encounter rate as being "normal, 2x, 1/2, and none". Right now, I can change the Encounter Rate by making States that give half encounter and no encounter, but I can't double it, and worse, going to a save point (which recovers all HP and MP and heals all status effects) removes it. 


What I'm looking for:


Difficulty option.


-Easy: 1/2 HP, 1/2 stats, 1/2 EXP


-Medium: database


-Hard: 2x HP, 2x stats, 2x EXP 


EXP slider:


-Normal


-1/2 Encounter Rate


-2x Encounter Rate


-None


Ideally, both of these things could be changed by an option in the options menu. Or a HUD element in the corner. Or, simply, by a switch. The switch would actually be more ideal because then I can tie an enemy's attacks to a common switch as well.


Let me know if you have any questions, or any way I can help.


Thanks in advance. :)

Quick and dirty encounter rate % option.


Script


I'll do the difficulty later on, so you might want to wait until then. Note that I will make a more generalized version of this plugin for the release section later on.
