hello! i asked a few of my smart rpg maker friends for help with this first but none of them seemed to be able to help, so i figured id post something here as a last ditch effort. ive been trying to make some skills for my game, but i cant seem to get them to do what i want them to. i know they can work in rpg maker 2k3, because ive seen them in other games, but for whatever reason i cant reverse engineer them. so, heres what im trying to do

- have a skill that deals double the user's attack, but deals recoil damage (im not sure how much i want the recoil to do, but any amount will work for me at this point lol)

- have a skill that deals damage to an enemy, and adds half the damage done to the user's hp

another one i really wanted to do was to have a skill that takes hp from one party member and transfers it to another, but im not sure if that one is possible.

ok quick update i JUST found the absorb checkmark box in the menus, its been sitting right in front of me this whole time lmao

You have no idea how much time I spent last night trying to get a Santa hat to fit on my avatar's head. Failure. Head's too small.
I realized recently since my game is still a turn based game, that something like the card game Yomi is a lot closer to what I should try to aim for combat wise. Should also help for those who don't really play fighting games to make things a bit easier to understand. ugh the struggles of trying to show love for my 2 favorite genres in 1 go lol.
Did a bit of work on the chemistry tiles I want.

Hey There!


My next plugin will be: "Dynamic Temperature Stats"

Now you might be wondering... What does it do?

Well, it's a fascinating plugin that adds a body temperature mechanic to characters.

Holy crap, it's cold. Our heat went out this morning and the repair guy won't get the part needed to fix it at least until tomorrow. Had to be now of all times, when we have stuff to do all week and it's the coldest night of November so far.
