Good suggestion with the display picture command. I can achieve the same results with it but unfortunately, in my case I am using Irina's Visual Novel Busts Plugin that has an issue with layer order when paired up with the Show Picture commands. I also extensively Galv's layer graphics as a separate "Background Picture" folder (for organizational purposes )as well because my Picture folder is now at 500+ images and it's getting hard to navigate what I need whenever I need a specific background image for a scene in an event.
Hmm, I see. There is an option for setting the coordinates of the layer using a Variable. You could in theory change two variables to player map x,y and then multiply the variable by 48, and adjust manually from there. I tried it for a few minutes, but ultimately seems like it might be more of a hassle than I thought, and likely not the ideal solution.

It might be easier to see if someone can edit the Bust plugin you're using... basically you need the bust to show above pictures but below the message window? I'm not familiar with that plugin, but there should be some sort of way to change the Z layer it's drawing the busts to. Alternatively, see if any plugins exist that change the Picture Z coordinates (not sure if this exists yet). Good luck!

I've updated the description of feature request to make it more clear.

Heya! Can anyone who is experienced with Galv Layer Graphic plugin answer some questions? :)

After the previous plugin (upp_parallaxPro) caused issues with saving the game, I switched to Galv Layer Graphic. I have figured out the basics, but I do wonder if I can do more.

First off, I can't make it work with plugin command. The map that I have created won't show up with a plugin command. It only works if I use Map Notes. I followed the instruction on Help, but it doesn't work.

It is possible to have more than one parallax map? Like an over and under layer. With the previous plugin, I was able to use an over and under, so my characters can walk beneath tree leaves without looking like they are stepping over it.

Any help would be appreciated. :D

Check the plugin instructions again, make sure to read it all. You need to refresh layers if adding layers on the same map. And yes you can have as many layers as you need on any z level you need them on.
I recommend downloading the demo to see examples.

I tried to open the demo, but when I did, it says "Unable to read file Actors.json

Open the demo in your RPG Maker MV via 'Game.rpgproject', don't open the html file in a browser.

Thanks for the help. I managed to get your plugin to work how I wanted it. :)

Thank you very much for this plugin and the demo which makes it pretty easy to use.

However there are two questions left for me: What exactly does "char" do for static sprite layers? Does it make the layer move along if a certain object moves?

And is there any way to apply a layer graphic only to a certain object? E.g. show a shadow only above the player but make it invisible for the rest of the map? I am thinking of sth. very similar like your "SHADOW DARKEN"-plugin but not tile based and instead based on real graphics.

The 'char' setting lets you center the static layer on an event or player. In the demo, the red semicircle on the event is an example of that.

I found that when your plug-in encounters horizontal and vertical circulation of the map, it will have problems. When you go to a fixed position, the foreground map will be refreshed
