Hey. I'm Jaime.

I'm in a strange place in my life. Well, with what's going on in the world, I think many of us can say the same, but for me the reasons are not exactly what you might think. I was always a shy bookworm type; so much so, that I never really formed social connections in school at all, and also never got employment experience because I was afraid taking an internship would ruin my perfect grades. I figured I'd wait until I was done with school and then let my academic success see me to a good job. It almost worked out that way, too, but a family loss sent everything crashing down. Now I'm a drop-out with no work experience or prospects, living comfortably (but worriedly) off the sizable life insurance beneficiary payout until I can make the necessary lifestyle changes and psychological recovery to support a job.

In the meantime, I try to focus on hobbies that help me foster my marketable skill set. Which is to say, I try to focus on hobbyist programming. I have RPG Maker MV, and I've been learning how to write plugins for it. I hope to create and share some useful plugins here. I've already submitted my first plugin, which, at the time of writing, is awaiting approval. I'm considering buying RPG Maker MZ and learning its system as well; I was under the impression that it was only a minor upgrade from MV, but I heard something from a reputable acquaintance that suggests I may have been mistaken. I also sometimes sprite, but I'm not all that good at it. I don't really make games, though that may change once I've put together a powerful enough system of plugins to work comfortably (though Yanfly has already done most of the work for me in that respect).

Hello there, Jaime! Glad to see another scripter around!

Since you like both programming and a bit of graphics, well, consider studying game design. You can't do a very compelx game on your own, but you can have an efficient skill set to develop original ideas and concepts.

[...] I'm considering buying RPG Maker MZ and learning its system as well; I was under the impression that it was only a minor upgrade from MV, but I heard something from a reputable acquaintance that suggests I may have been mistaken.
Code wise it's basically the same with some very minor modifications. MZ code is a lil' better and have some stuff that you won't find on MV, but nothing revolutionary.

If something, I considered porting MV code to MZ and vice versa. But it's not that challenging nor a lot of fun. IMHO you will be fine no matter which one you pick.

Well, be welcome! It's not like I'm always around, but I drop by sometimes. I see you around.

Cheers, pal!

Welcome to the forums! Sorry you're going through the school of hard knocks right now though.

As for MZ, it may feel like just a nice MV upgrade (+ animations change) to novice users like myself. However, it sounds like there's a lot more "under the hood". It runs smoother and I heard that it has a much better UI flow for those who do scripting. Note you'll lose some plug-in compatibility but what's available is growing.

I have MZ in two of my favorite features are:
- Having your events listed in the left pain
- Layers are back!

I wish you the best in everything. :)

I did an experiment to try to solve the art style problem between RTP and 3D models.
But, it feels this grimdark world is going to end even faster. :kaoswt2:
