My intention is make a Image map and use in game, which the player will not be able to move freely.

Basically, the player can travel around the world map by fast travels, and stop in the cities (which will have a normal map).

LIKE THIS (Mount&Blade Warband Screnshot)

or this:



But I have some doubts that right now makes me impossible to create that map!
-How do I make player travel? (I wish something more complicated than a dialogue chat that teleports the player to the location!)
-How do I make random events during the travel?
-Its possible to use only the mouse on world map?
-My game will work with multiple companions that the player can recruit with time. But when the player goes to campaign map I wish to remove all sprites (or will be bugged or strange). Ok, but when the party goes to a city, how I can make the game know which character(sprite) was leading, and return the char sprite?

-Any suggestions are welcome.

If someone could help me, I would be very grateful! Thanks!

While this may not be what you are looking for, I've implemented a sort of interactive map in one of my games.

Basically, I am using a background render I created and restrict player movement by YEP region restrict. The arrows are activated by player touch and relocates player to designated places.

Random events could be done via dice rolls.

"How do I...?" (implementation) questions go in the Support forum for the engine you are using.

Nice map! But I'm thinking to give to player more freedom, and show some infos by the mouse movement or selection!

Like this:

This map represent all that I want hahah!

By the way, how I can use dice rolls system to make random events?

You are about to cross the boundaries (limitations) of RPG Maker engine here. You will need plugins that don't exist. You will need to pay/hire someone to do it.

Or choose a different engine, like Unity. Unity can easily duplicate what you are looking for.

Yes, I know that seems ambitious, but I dont expect crate the same, just a model to adapt to RMMV!

Take a look at TDDP_MouseSystemEx. It has been used to successfully implement point and click elements (and world maps) in the current project I'm working on. Set a background parallax, don't add any tiles, and place a bunch of events with no image where you want things to activate.

i managed it like cyanic said, with a parallax background and events for the locations, plus yanfly grid free doodads for some details. Also TDDP mouse system doesnt seem to be up to date, but there is Qtouch as an alternative.
I did something similar to eiyuu senki or sengoku rance (strategy rpg) with just eventing so a mount and blade kind of interactive world map is definitely doable.

Having randomized space below my maps is like cheating, every map instantly starts out interesting. See? I just started on this one, and boom interesting!. :LZSexcite:

Moderators, you must have so much patience to be able to deal with everything. I mod in a server of sorts and today we just got a message, which, despite it's helpful constructive criticism, basically stated that all of the mods were jerks and that was the only reason our server was unlikeable. So, thank you, for having patience. You are appreciated! :kaoluv:
Haired slime? Trying some different styles of art. Maybe I can make some resources with this new kind of painting.......
i love my game very much
Uh, I'm probably overthinking this, but I think that some of my music sounds kinda...bad?
The melodies are just sort of awkward, and don't flow.
I'm really not sure what to do. Why am I even worrying about this? I don't even have a battle system yet!
