Frog Health v1.0.0
RPG Maker MV gives you a lot of fine-grained control over your game, but it’s primarily geared towards the creation of the JRPGs. This means that certain aspects of some of the classic WRPGs that I grew up with, like Ultima and Dungeons & Dragons, aren’t supported by default. Well, I’d like to fix that!
Adventuring is dangerous business. Imagine your party climbing the tallest mountain in the world. The icy wind howls as you all attempt to stave off the cold. Nights are treacherous and not just because monsters are about. The temperature drops to an unmanageable degree. You must find shelter and build a fire in order to avoid freezing to death. You packed as much food and water as you could but reaching the top of the mountain is taking a lot longer than any of you expected. The monsters roaming this rarely traveled location are fierce and relentless. Exhaustion is setting in as sleep is hard to come by. Will you live to reach the peak? Will you have enough strength left to fight the White Dragon who lives at the top and guards an ancient artifact that you so desperately need to fulfill your quest?
This plugin requires FROG Core to be installed.
One element that used to be very common in classic WRPGs is extra parameters for health beyond the physical which is typically designated as HP or Life. These extra parameters are things that a real, living human being, or whatever race they may be, couldn’t survive or function without: Food, Water, Oxygen, Normal Body Temperature, their Mind/Psyche/Sanity and so on. Some games even divided a character’s overall HP into different body parts with varying side-effects attributed to low health in each. A busted leg would slow you down. A mangled arm would make it impossible to carry a shield. A serious head wound might knock you out for while.
That’s where FROG_Health comes into play. Instead of taking the easy route and just making some extra variables that you can manipulate, I've gone and done something a little crazy. I've added full-blown extra HP stats to RPG Maker MV that are completely customizable. Better yet, I've provided a way to set environmental conditions that change the way your custom Health HP operates. For instance, you can define an Oxygen HP stat for your actors which normally would rise every few steps and be full most of the time. Go underwater, though, and the plugin can set a Condition which will start depleting your Oxygen HP. You also have the ability to tie States to different levels of HP (normal or Health HP) so that if your character's Oxygen completely runs out, they die. Even better, you can create Skills and Items that apply to your new Health HP stats the same exact way they would apply to normal HP. Want to give an enemy a Choke attack or have your Wizard casting a suffocation spell? No problem. I've got you covered.

- Add as many extra HP stats to your game: Food, Water, Rest, Oxygen, Psyche, Body Temperature or whatever else you can think of.
- Automatically control how they function. You can set them up to increase, decrease or converge towards the middle at any rate you'd like based on steps taken.
- Create and set Conditions that make your players fight harsh weather and environments that change how the auto-control works. Extreme heat or cold can kill you. A stale bog can inflict disease. Terror can wrack you mind.
- Create Skills and Items that damage multiple forms of Health HP.
- Customize your actor's battle status window and enemy visual Health gauges.
- Customize the standard Status window to show each actor's Health HP.
- Configure Health HP to deplete normal HP, MP or a different Health HP if it falls into the negative.
How to Use
This plugin supports a ridiculous number of parameters and customizable options (even by my standards). You can find the full documentation by clicking the link for this plugin and viewing the Read Me file.
