Is there syntax or a plugin already in existence that can be used to make your battlers glow when under the effects of a state? If it's built-in and I missed it, perfectly willing to kick myself.

I've looked at Yanfly's VisualStateEffects, and it looks great for being able to put an animation on the character if under a state. I'm using that for my playtesting right now, but for when the game is complete, these will be far too elaborate. Here's a screenshot from another game that illustrates what I'm going for.

To be clear, I'm not adamant about it being a glow. My ultimate goal is a subtle, constant visual clue to indicate that an enemy battlers has a particular state. These states will be assigned to enemy battlers at the onset of combat and influence what skills a player will want to use against them.

Thoughts?

The only thing I'm aware of are plugins like Yanfly's that place the status icon over top affected monsters. Probably battle or status core.

@Loydiee - While the states I'm referring to aren't a result of skills being used, the concept is still the same. Basically, enemies have certain starting states in combat, and I use RMMV states to reflect those conditions...

@Frogboy - Thanks. I was looking at that, and that's what I'll end up doing if I can't find a way to make a glow, but I think it creates visual clutter I'm not careful with it.

@padr81 - Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately I'm only dealing with enemies; not the parties. I'll still check out the video and see if there's something I can glean from it.
