Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to RPGmaker MV, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to do my own day/night cycles. I know there are plugins and scripts but I haven't figured out how to implement them, and I'm pretty confident that I can do tthe logic behind the transitions as I've done it in Gamemaker (with lots of help). I need help with the following:

I want to make a common event that controls the tint shifting for each time of day, but I want to be able to throw an event on each map that controls this. So when you walk inside a house the suns not shining or the house is dark etc.

I've created the common event that controls the tint shifting, I just need to know how to apply it with events and switches etc. The more specific the better for me, as I'm still a huge noob. Thanks in advance!

The I suggest you take some time of working on your game to learn the engine, because that will massively speed up your later work.

Please follow the link to the "starting point" in my signature and work through the tutorials mentioned there, especially the "Cariables Guide" game.

or use this link if you want to event it.

But what Andar said, learn the software and do the inbuilt tutorial if your a new to learn all or most basics.
besides that, learn how to create maps and event through watching video's as well before even dealing with
plugins itself.

Your logic is almost complete. The common event would handle the tinting, and would be called on each map. Have an event set to parallel process on each map, set a variable to a certain value (you could use 1 for indoors and 2 for outdoors etc.), then call the tinting common event. Use erase event at the end so that the event stops processing but will run again upon map-entry.

The common event would check the value of the variable and tint accordingly.

But really, do what Andar said. Get familiar with RPG Maker and in no time you can event your own systems.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to keep at it and it should come together.

Ok.. coding what should be a simple "everyone is petrified and therefore dead, now go to game over screen" shouldn't involve needing to become Dr. J and dunking from the free throw line(my way of saying "jumping through hoops").
Hmmmm... how many xrays til I get super powers?
..of the major old school series that began in the 80s- early 90s, I still haven't beaten 'a' Zelda game. Mario 64 was the first Mario I've beaten. I don't know if I should give that honor to Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds(I currently own both). Well technically I've haven't beaten a Sonic either (Game Genie doesn't count =P).

Time to add the "headshot" concept into the game so that people may actually aim at the heads when shooting zombies and get massive damage and armor-pen bonus as rewards. :kaojoy:
(The red area is just for visually debug purposes right now. But, it's possible that I will add something that displays the weak spots of enemies in the future.)
Worked on a cutscene skip domino effect using Maker Systems' script as the basis. Basically if I have a batch of cutscenes in a row on different maps, now when you skip one cutscene it will skip the entire set. No more spamming X to skip a scene every new map.

Oh and it will work regardless of where you do it from in the set. Convenient!
