    Gameus' Quest System
    Authors: gameus
    Version: 1.0
    Introduction
    This is a (for the most part) basic quest system. Has a basic layout to help players keep track of all the different quests they might encounter. Also gives you plenty of commands and script calls to manage and keep track of said quests behind the scenes.

    Features
    • Simple UI to keep track of quests with some customization options
    • Friendly commands to track/complete/fail/reset/count/progress quests
    • Auto rewards upon quest completion (optional)
    • Quest categories (optional)
    • Full blown quest editor included

    Downloads

    NOTE: I removed the audio and graphics from the demo due to filesize. Extract the zip into a new project.
    Demo (Plugin and Editor Included)
    Editor
    GameusQuestSystem.Js

    Instructions
    Place the script in a file and save it in your 'plugins' folder. Name the file 'GameusQuestSystem.js'
    In order to use this plugin, you need to download the Quest Editor. Place it in your project's folder and run it at least once. Make sure you save or your game won't run.
    Make sure to read the plugin's help. It lists all the plugin commands and script calls.

    Known Bugs
    • Custom words not working
    • Issue with Yanfly's core plugin, making it load Test_Quests.json during a test battle
    • Cannot read property "cat" of null (No idea where this is coming from, but will look into it) (cat being category, nothing related to the cat quests at all)
    Planned Features
    Here's a list of planned features for future updates. There is no particular order or an ETA on any of these. They'll come when they come.
    • Implement Yanfly's gold icon for quest rewards
    • Allow an option to use background images instead of windows
    • More Colors, the option to color your quests and categories, and all the different parts of a quest
    • Font options, the ability to change the font and font size throughout
    • More icons for categories and sub categories
    Compatibility
    To use this with Yanfly's Main Menu plugin, set one of your menu options like so:

    Umm.... I wasn't going to use a quest log, but now I think I might have to. This is simply too cool. Thank you!

    Is the root log just the Documents/Games/[name of game]?

    Yes. 

     
    I'll put those now. 

    Not entirely sure yet. I really wanted to look into other tilemap options as I really don't like the mapping style from VX/Ace/MV.

    Nice! I wasn't even thinking about this but this looks so good I might have to put a quest system in my game now XD. Seriously though, thanks so much for making this, this is just awesome (and the quest editor reminds me of Mobius' for RMXP)

    I'll add a friendlier plugin command later but for now you can do this.

    $gameQuests.get(quest_id).desc = "New description here" 

    I'll look into it and try to squeeze it in the next update.


    If anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to share your ideas. I won't add/implement everything, but I wouldn't mind adding more things to this.


    EDIT: Dat hi res screenshot do

    I think it runs really well took me a bit of getting used to and angered me as I was wondering why I didn't have complete wrote accross my quest then realized I needed to have a completed image and edited the plug in part.

    For some reason I don't seem to have the ALL section in the top left. So will need to find out why.

    Where it says all can that switch left and right so it says: ALL, COMPLETED, FAILED, STORY,GATHERING. etc?

    Hey, gameus, I figured I would mention something. I started using your plug in (loving it btw, that seperate program you made is so organized and wonderful) and I noticed something. In the help file of your plug in, it says in order to start a quest, you write:

    Quest Add quest_id

    Activates a quest.

    Maybe I was just being dumb but I wrote:

    Quest Add quest_1

    which is incorrect. I then saw in your demo the correct format is:

    quest add 1

    So, idk, maybe I was just being dumb but thought I would mention that I found it a bit confusing, but after I figured it out, it's all working and it's a beautiful plug in so far and you did a really great job!

     I was thinking about making it so you'd cycle through all categories, but then I realized that there could be a lot of quest categories to go through. Someone, for example, could have a category for each city in their game, along with story, crafting, gathering, treasure hunting, etc.... If someone has 20+ categories in their game, it'd take awhile to cycle through all categories. That's why I had decided to go with All, Progress, Completed, Failed and then have sub-categories in the actual quest list window.


    As for why it's not showing the "All" window, if you zip up your "js" folder and send it to me, I can take a look at it.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I'll change the help right now so it's not confusing.

    No need to apologize, I'm just happy I can help in some way. I'm fiddling around with the plug in more and I have to say, it's very organized, easy to use, and just really well made all around. The work you put into this is very much appreciated!

    I will definitely be using this in my future MV project. The quest editor looks pretty dang sweet too. It's nice that you can set the rewards right in the editor. Great work!
