I'm making a game as a hobby and have no intention of using it commercially, so with that being said I do not at all want to pay a stupidly hefty £30 for Yanfly's plugins.
With that out of the way, how would I go about locking the party leader? Not locking out formation entirely, but only locking the party leader so he cannot be replaced by someone else as party lead.

you'll need a plugin, but there should be other plugins than yanfly's who do the same.

just make a request in plugin requests, and someone will provide links (I don't have them atm)

RPG Maker always seems to have something good, and then almost immediately have something holding it back. Good lord is this frustrating having to dig through dead websites and threads to find a plugin that might work for a feature that ultimately should've been there to begin with.

Andar didn't ask you to dig through dead websites and threads to find what you're looking for though; all you need to do is post in plugin requests asking for the same thing. If you're not even willing to do that, I don't know what to tell you.

not for every type of game.

the more options you pile on a base engine, the more difficult it becomes to turn it into different specialisations. That is why the default engine contains only basic features and allows the developer to use plugins to add other features.

...it is. Your copy of MV came with a plugin in dlc\KadokawaPlugins called FixedBattleMembers that does exactly what you asked.
It would've taken you fewer keystrokes to type into Google "RPG Maker MV lock party member" and the first result is a thread with that answer...

Funnily enough, that's exactly what I did but only got results pertaining to VX Ace, your cocky nonchalance is appreciated nonetheless. I will use this.

You can be snarky about my response, but it was in response to your unproductive complaints. I'm glad you can do what you want, and hope it helps you maintain more of an even temper.

Just finished and uploaded the delivery truck base/sprite sheet. I've been steadily replacing the default assets with early modern alternatives. The air-ship for a biplane, horse-drawn wagon for a delivery truck, and next a sailboat for a steam-powered passenger liner (think of the SS Olympic and RMS Titanic).
I caught a shiny magikarp on pokemonGO today AND finally saw Detective Pikachu and it was so cute and I'm still so hype AHHHHH!!!
one of the coolest things I've learned from the forums is the ability to give yourself a hitbox. I have a move you can do on the fields. shoulder tackle. thanks to the forums, that tackle triggers self A switches on some events. NPC's and the environment now react to the tackle. awesome.
I really liked how this one turned out! :kaopride:

Character (Yes, this is a character): Nibiru the Primal Being from Yugioh.
Dragon Quest style enemy selection plugin work in progress:

It's a simple targeting system from the NES era. Select an enemy group; single-target skills will target the first enemy in that group.
