Friends i have seen that in a few rpg games like the one i downloaded from here called Homework-Salesman that in front of an event there is an animation letting you know to visit that object to trigger the event. My question is how do i implement that indicator. See image below and look at the refridgerator and the hutch beside it that there are little white shining sprites letting me know to visit those 2 objects to trigger something. That is what i want to do.

it's probably the event's own sprite set to those sparks.
after the event is done, activate the event's self-switches, and enable a secondary page, without the sparks.

Simplest way is to give the event a sprite of those sparkles and have it activate stepping animation to animate that sprite. Because the furniture is part of the map anyway, there is no need for it to be part of the event itself.

If the event is not part of the map you'll need a bit more work with show animation on it, and to repeat that it'll need a bit of event code inside.

I wonder if color LUTs is possible for RPG Maker. It would be game changer and can replace the not so good looking tint screen
new mechanic in battle where you can mentally erase enemies when you deplete all their MP instead HP. this gives you a special item of their "memory". it's pretty to do in battle so far.
Apparently MZ lets you preview move routes in the move route editor without having to start up test game. That could save a lot of time during development compared to MV, especially for a long game that uses a lot of event movement for cutscenes.
