    Hey guys,

    I just bought the game and installed it. But I don't know how to add plugins to my project. Because when I try to create my own map, the elements I can use are very limited.

    In the e-mail I got after purchasing the game, they gave me several files to download so that I can get more elements to use in the game. But I don't know how to add them to my projects.

    Can you explain me please?

    Thank you very much.

    You have to add the assets in your project's folder. To quickly access your project files, in the RPG Maker Software there's a bar at the top with things like File, Edit, Mode, etc. Select Game -> Open Folder. Then from here it's just a matter of pasting the assets in the correct folders.

    open your project folder -> js -> plugins and put them inside this folder
    than in the editor, go to plugin data base -> and put the plugin from the drop menu.

    (this answer can also be found on this forum and on youtube.)
    make sure to do the inbuild tutorial and whats some tutorials online so you got a big
    basic how to do everything.

    from there, you need to extend your ability for creating your game.

    those are extra you probably can use in your game or not, you can save them or use them, but thats up to you.

    no, only javascript plugins go into the plugin folder.
    the rest are resources, not plugins, and are added through the resource manager

    Resource Manager is one of the in-program options when you open RPG Maker MV. All of your basic questions afterwards can be answered by watching tutorials on YouTube. SRDude and Echo607 have a lot of good tutorials.
