Now all we need is a more 'dynamic' style of followers where they don't follow you like a perfect catapillar.
(Something similar to the Definitive version of Dragon Quest XI or Persona 3~5)

Where the followers have a bit of distance from the leader and are formed usually in a triangle shape behind the leader when not moving/idle.

This is amazing! <3 ^_^ Would also be cool to have them be like those Skyrim mods, where followers will do their own thing when idle, walking around, sitting on chairs etc. xD :D <3 But yes, this is such a great start for follower improvements! :D

Feels more natural, maybe it's possible to make the follower wait for the player to move further in the future.
That's something i'd like to have seen on MV instead a couple of years ago.
Good job, buddy.

Thanks all! I appreciate the suggestions. Perhaps in the future we may be working on them.

You overestimate our skills!!!

This looks nice. I especially like the way the followers turn to face the leader even though they're not moving, rather than just standing facing the same way all the time.

@Gabe When you use the mouse to make the player run, the followers separate from the player. This doesn't happen when you dash with keyboard controls.

However, when you move back to the followers after using the mouse to dash, it's back to normal.

Are you using any diagonal movement plugin? By default everything works correctly, even when moving by touch.

I see. I'm using VisuStella's EventsMoveCore with the 8 Directional movement plugin parameter enabled.

I have another plugin "Yami_8DirEx" from the DLC folder that also enables that and same problem. So I believe it's only a problem with 8 Directional movement enabled from about any plugin, if I use the keyboard or touchscreen to dash.

Right. This is already a known issue. I'll work on fixing it as soon as possible.

I swear I had already posted in this thread..

This plugin is amazing, I love it.

The tweaks that people already mentioned & the ability to lose ur players a little easier is def something that could be expanded on but I will totally be using this in my game

Yesterday I made my first step towards eating more healthily.
I saw candy on discount and did not buy it.

I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
Took the kids to a corn maze. They gave us a map and had lights at certain points in the maze. Not overwhelming... or underwhelming... just... whelming.
