Introduction
Show the player they can make an action on something they are lookin' at.




Features
Enables you to display an icon above the event the player is facing. This icon has a floating up and down movement and is determined using a tag inside a comment anywhere on an event’s active page. The idea for this is to be used to indicate to the player what the action key will do before they press it.


How to Use
- Copy the "GALV_ActionIndicatorsMZ.js" file into your project's /js/plugins/ folder.
- Activate plugin using the 'Plugin Manager'.
- Read the 'HELP' documentation (also found in plugin manager) for more details and try the demo if you don't understand.

Free to use in any RPG Maker MZ project including commercial. Please credit "Galv".

Love the plugin!
But it is possible to extend the range?
For events like Inn shopkeepers that are behind a table?

Counters are a good point, didn't think of that. I will add to my to-do list.

this is nice plugin...

beside icon can it also use image instead...
so when we near the npc... we can also pop out not just icon but image...
for example when closing to npc... image which is [photoshopped button with "Trade" text] could pop out...

or it could be another plugin instead... :D.
if it will be another plugin... please add offset x and y value too...

Actually there already is counter functionality. If your tileset has the counter tile set as a 'Counter', the plugin already detects that.

Is it possible to get an x offset as well? I have some irregularly shaped events but by default there is only y offset available :)

EDIT: figured out you can already set an x offset in an event's notetag eg <actionIcon: 2500, -24|24> will have icon 2500, -24 X offset and +24 Y offset. Yay!
