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!~

Finds notes for an old side project... Oh, that's right, the two tracks that sounded really cool and gave inspiration for the big bad in that game... Spends day working on cutscene from old notes, looks okay, now lets slot in the first track... um... I did have those tracks??? It was a year or so ago but I did buy them didn't I?
