    I'm making a visual novel/dating sim in rpg maker. I know how it's done, thats not the problem. the problem is, i want the MC's face sprite to change depending if they pick male, female, neither and their race and class. is there any way with a plugin or otherwise that i can change the face sprite/sprites depending on which switches are flipped? Any help would be appreciated! thanks!

    depends on what exactly you want.

    there are basically two different approaches:
    1) every possible face is predefined and stored, the engine selects the face to be used depending on player input.
    In that case easily done, just tedious - you'll need a long list of conditional branches checking for the player selections and then use a different change actor graphics in each result.

    2) you want the player to construct the face from components like hair, nose, eyes and so on
    cannot be done without a plugin or script. And once you have such a plugin, it will be even more tedious to set it up with all the possible components.
