Hirion - Swim (v1.3)
Introduction:
A swimming system for the party leader on the map. This does not work with followers yet. This works with Moghunter Chrono plugin as well, you won't be available to use any tools if swimming.

Features:
  • Easy to setup and uses terrain tags for swimming.
  • Enable/disable plugin ingame using a switch.
  • Custom graphics when swimming.
  • A "splash" animation will be played when entering water/going out. You should setup a custom animation for this.
  • A required item can be used in order to successfully swim.
  • If failing to swim, i.e required item is not equipped, you can set damage to the player.
  • Character effects. Example: Character will blink if taking damage from failing to swim.
Screenshots:


How to Use:
To use this plugin you need to setup a terrain tag for swimming and change swim graphics to your custom one. More details about each parameter is included in the plugin.
For easy access to water you should change the passability in the tileset to be passable.

Compatible:
Moghunter Chrono Engine: Put Hirion Swim plugin below this if installed.
Hirion Fall: A great combination if used with this plugin.

Plugin Download:
Hirion Core
Hirion Swim
This plugin will not work without the Core plugin. Please install this plugin below the core.

Updates
  • Added "Unable to find swim graphic" alert message if swim graphic is not set or found.
  • Added a plugin command to check if swimming.
  • Fixed support for latest RPG Maker MV update version 1.5.1. Blink effect was not working as intended.
  • Small update to add debug mode and cleaned up the code a bit.
  • Updated to work with RPG Maker 1.6+ versions.

Demo:
No.

No problem. I will probably continue updating it with new features. I am mainly thinking of adding so you can dive, like in Zelda. Very cool things can be done if so. :)

@Josue Castillo: Thank you!

I've updated this plugin to version 1.1 and the core plugin to 1.2. Please install those because if you are using RPG Maker MV version 1.5.1 it might not work as intended.

@Nicke Nice plugin.
But, can you add the feature so that, one can use notetags in Class/Actor eg: <Swim: yes> to enable certain type of Character swim (of course it should be in Leaders Position).
Like it can be Used in Monster type Games (for Water type monsters).

Second, can you add a optional system. so that Character animations are bit (40%~50% of sprites) chopped off from bottom while swiming, rather than using a separate sprite. Like what MV does by default for the Bush Tiles (chops off 10% of character sprites)

Whereas its just an idea, I know it may be difficult done then said.

Hi @Nicke. I have some trouble setting up your plugin. I have download Core and Swim and installed them (Swim below Core). Made sure the terrain tag is the same number as in the plugin. Made the tile passable. And yet, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Same, the plugin doesn't work at all. Set up the terrain tag, the switch and custom graphic, and nothing happens...

When looking at the console, it seems to be trouble with Hirion Core's version.

Hello, yeah I haven't had the time to look into why this is not working. I hope I will be able to sort out a fix as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenient.

Hey, so I haven't installed the plugin yet, or given it a try, but I'm wondering if this would work properly with SRD Character Creator EX. As the player would have their own custom character, I would think it would be more difficult to put a swimming sprite in, no? I'm not very good with programming, albeit it is something I'm going to have to teach myself soon.

n will be played when entering water/going out.
Have set it up as per required, but the terrain is still unmovable and the player doesn't swim around at all for some reason, any guides to set it up correctly ?

Would greatly be appreciated.
