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 managed to fix my car at last... :biggrin:

I'm proud of what I have achieved with my project. Don't mind with the Spanish, Ill add more languages.
Our garage has been so full since moving we haven't been able to get our car in. Storm night before last (no hail), storms forecast for last night & today. I convinced hubby we should clean out the garage and we managed to get it done and get the car in. Hail last night! Just in time!
