Hi.
I'll explain.
I created an event that simulates a bank account.
Now I just want every 7 days with a common event, which I will set on Sunday, to add a percentage value to the account variable, for example 5%.
Something like: if it's Sunday: add 5% on variable 14.
I guess I need a script, but I've never used one.

no, control variable and mathematical knowledge is all you need.

adding 5% is mathematically the same as multiplying by 1.05, and that can be done by control variable

I think you can calculate %-values with the variable operations the RMMV already has:

x = account value
x *= 5 <-- 5%
x /= 100
account value += x

I've decided "Attack on Equestria" should be released first... hence this new ARG channel! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClKiUI8xOVx9dsF4kRXUmxw
Check it out, and subscribe! The ARG will lead up to the video game. It's not a creepy game, but I just thought it should follow ARG standards.
For anyone interested in my project M - i finally made a gamethread about it :D

Yay. I turned 39 today. Another year older, another year closer to the grave.
I'm sure the latest post/thread in the sidebar used to have 5 posts. Was it always been like this?

Made it to the 10th video doing this! :kaocry:
