Hello! I was wondering: is there a mechanic that would allow the player to edit the map in real time? I'll elaborate:
In the little game I am making for fun, you can terraform the world around you. I was picturing it like this (sorry for the messiness):

Hopefully that makes sense?? Thank you for any help, and I hope you have a good day!

In case of RPG2003 1.12 on Steam, there is a feature in Maniac Patch that adds a new eventcommand (マップの書き換え / Rewrite Map) to change the tiles on map at XY-position of player-object while the game is running. So that could be a good way to do this.

Still, you would have to save all the changes that are made e.g. into variables and re-apply them every time when the map is visited again by the player, because such data can't be saved by itself.
Good luck!~

A woman gave me her number without me even asking for it. Then she left because she had other patients to see.
oh, hey, I forgot about all this!

my old project got abandoned after I started working too much on stuff I'd already worked on - plus, starting to hate the story I wrote for it. Then, well, a lot of serious life **** went down. I ended up moving across the country, cutting off some people, etc. - **** was rough.

So, uh, I guess I'm back for now? Funny how things work.
I'm glad I'm sticking to my guns on having fighting game mechanics in my game, from what I've read, it's not for everyone. but for the most part, I've made it so you don't have to use them motion inputs for attacks if you don't want to.
And my project's just entered the Lunar New Year Sale 2022... Let's see if it reaches it's goal of $ 7,77.
Ohmygoodness I played Dicey Dungeons for the first time last night. Gave me SO MANY IDEAS for how to fix Heidi.
