Hello! :kaohi:

Would someone be able to help me create an add-on for Galv's Magic Shards plugin?

What I'm hoping to achieve is to change the class of the equipped character based on what shards they equip. For example, if they equip 1 Fire Shard, they become a Fire Mage. If they swap the Fire Shard with an Ice Shard, they become an Ice Mage. If they then equip both at the same time, they now become a Frostburn Sage.

To be more specific, there's two notetags that I'd imagine would need to be made to allow for this:

The first being something along the lines of<shardelement: fire>
In which the "element" of the shard it set. That way, a Fire Shard, Blazing Shard, and Magma Shard could all count towards making the character a Fire Mage.

The other would presumably be for the actor itself, along the lines of <shardclass: 5, fire, fire, fire>
In which the actor would become class ID 5 when equipped with 3 "fire" shards. If the actor's shards don't meet the requirements from any of their notetags, they would just revert back to their initial class. In the case that the actor meets the requirements for several of these notetags at once, I think it would be easiest if they would take on the class from the lowest notetag that they qualify for.

As one last note, it would be really nice if, when hovering over shards to swap/add/remove in the magic shards scene, it would show how the character's stats would change upon the class change.

I hope I explained this well enough, but if there's anything you'd like me to explain in more detail, definitely let me know!

Thank you! :kaothx:

I haven't used or read the magic shards plugin, so I'm not sure to what extent the shards are treated as equipment; however, you could try adding this in, just to see if it does anything.

Hey, and thanks for the recommendation! :)

It definitely looks like a good start, although it seems that the plugin only supports single item-to-class changes without any other functionality that I could try and tweak to allow for the actor specific combinations I'm hoping to do. Unfortunately it also seems that Mellye doesn't seem to be around there days to possibly add the functionality. Thanks again, though.

Working on a case. Get all the evidence to prosecute some bad guys. :kaojoy:
But, the game development schedule delayed. :kaoswt2:
The moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished... I guess...
Now, hopefully, some certain people will not be stupid enough to leak my name on the reports.
just beat ff7 original for the first time since 2010. having played remake last year, I have a much better appreciation for the original oddly enough. I still like some of the character presentation in remake more, but the original's got a lot going for it.
Ever reach that moment in your life when your juggling a dozen or more projects that you know will never be made but don't have the heart to delete them? Ugh, I hate those moments...
:kaosigh: Why must you hurt me so?
my main character isn't the warrior of light or the chosen one, he's a self righteous, invasive try hard who gets ahead of himself and makes a critical error, resulting in a downward moral spiral that, eventually, leads him to truths that make him a better man, and im DAMN proud of that.
