What I mean is like can I add buttons to the eventing system? The database? Or is it like it was in VXA with only things like note tagging.

I mostly program in C/C++ and I am unsure what this term means. I would definitely put time into JavaScript if it meant I could add things to the engine it self. If not could someone give me an explanation of this meaning? Thank you.

You seem to be confusing the engine and the editor itself.

The game engine consists of all files in the "js" and "js/libs" folders of your game and you are free to edit them (although i would advise to use plugins for this). The editor itself creates the files in the "data" folder (and "js/plugins.js"), which contain your database, maps, etc and you're not allowed to change it.

In previous makers, we could not access the Sprite class, the Tileset class, the Window class, etc. So while we could customize how the game looked and felt, there were limits.


In MV, all of those classes are open to us to see and change as we wish. We can change ANYTHING about the games we make.


However, this is changing the GAMES, not the EDITOR. The code of the editor has never been available to us to change, and that still stands for MV.


It sure would be nice to be able to add our own event command buttons, our own quick events, our own extra parameters in the database tabs.

Ok thank you for clearing things up for me! When I hear the word plugin and no hidden classes I think adding to the Editor and source code, idk why but it just clicked that way in my head.

I definitely vote for an editor plugin system though :)

Hot chocolate and music make studying and note-taking much easier :kaoluv:
