Hi!

In my project, actors get most of the skills from gears. And it has 2 skill types, light and dark. I want to make some skills that depend on the skill type of the actor, the effect of the skill changes. Is this possible?

For example:
[Actor 1] with light type skill equipped a robe with [Skill A]. [Actor 1] uses [Skill A] in battle, [Skill A] heal the party.
[Actor 2] with dark type skill equipped a robe with [Skill A]. [Actor 2] uses [Skill A] in battle, [Skill A] damage an enemy.

Thanks for your time.

Simply make two skills with the same name but different skill types and different effects.

you can't change a skill effect that way by default, and even using a plugin it would only cause your development to become a mess.
on the other hand the player will never be able to see that it's two different skills if you're carefull with the naming and the messages.

If your Actor only has access to the Light or Dark types but not both, do Andars suggestion. Skills will only show on the actor if he has access to the skill type of that skill (given via Traits/Effects), so if your equipment gives 2 skills but one is Light type while other is Dark type, the actor will only see the skill of the type that he has.

This should work. I'm just too reliant on being transparent to the player, this always makes my ideas to hit a wall. Thank you both!

I just successfully tested changing music by region, and changing it between continents on the world map after getting on/off the airship. I had to override the default audio transitions with eventing to make it change smoothly but it worked.
