HI, i hope i posted this in the right place

I need help with making an npc follow another npc, is it possible? I tried looking it up but i only get information on how to make an npc follow the player or make the player follow an npc but that's not what i'm looking for since i know how to do that. I don't mean during a common event, i mean like a pet dog npc following it's owner npc around in a town and i can run around and talk to them and stuff. sorry if the info is not clear, am not good at explaining.

Thanks in advance!

you need to have one controlling event for both the NPC and the dog.
that event needs to give the move commands to both - and since it knows what command it gave the NPC it can give the fitting command to the dog.

Sorry i didn't explain good enough >.< I can set a move path for them both but i want the owner to be set to random movement and have the dog follow, kinda like the 'move toward player' option but following the owner instead. If it's not possible i will do as you said

If you don't mind using plugins, try Yanfly's Move Route Core, there's a command MOVE TO: EVENT x. The plugin does much more than that so it will probably be quite useful anyway.

Oh, sorry, I really need to look at which part of the forum I am in. Have you tried a pathfinding method combined with getting the NPC guy's coordinates?

edit: Just tried it myself and it works fine, you don't even have to get the NPC's coordinates using this script.
Put this script call inside the dog's custom movement route: PathFinder.dyn_find(dogID, $game_map.events[npcID])
dogID being the number of the dog event, npcID the number of the NPC event
