This is a stand-alone plugin that puts use to stats like HRG/MRG/TRG on the map. I'll say this many times, but even though it does work without a HUD, I imagine that it would make the most sense to find a HUD that displays two or three of the stats: HP/MP/TP, or whatever you're using.

This enables HRG/MRG/TRG to function while on the map.
Additionally, due to the way I used it (and figured others may too), I setup TP to regenerate about 10x faster than HP/MP.

I did this to give the illusion that TP was like stamina or something, so it can be (is by default) configured to consume TP when dashing.

It is difficult to capture regeneration with imagery.

How to Use

Just take the plugin and throw it in your project like you would any other plugin.

It should just work.

There is a single setting: "useTPtoDash". Set it to "true"(default) to consume TP when dashing. Set it to "false" to disable that.

This is plug-n-play, there are no dependencies, nor demo needed to demonstrate this.


If I am a slacker and fail to keep it up to date on here, you can also find it on my pastebin.

@help This plugin adds the functionality of HP/MP/TP regeneration on the map.
Ideally, this system would be used in conjunction with an ABS of sorts,
as it was originally designed to hold hands with qABS, but it does work all
by itself, too.

MATH BREAKDOWN: actor's HRG = 50(%).
formula per tick = ((actor.hrg * 100) / 2) / 5;
((0.5 * 100) / 2) / 5
(50 / 2) / 5
25 / 5
5 per tick (1 tick = 30 frames = 0.5 seconds)

In short, the actor will regenerate 1/10 of whatever his HRG/MRG is, per tick.
I opted into making it flatHP instead of %maxHP since % would be pretty op.

NOTE: TRG's regeneration is updated 10x faster (1 tick = 3 frames = 0.05s)
Currently, it is being used as "stamina".
Try making a skill cost like, 15 TP or something and use it as a basic
attack limiter to prevent the player from swinging excessively.
If you don't like it, you can just turn it off, too.
For reference, it takes 15% TRG to cancel out TP depletion while dashing.

If you intend to use this, I highly recommend you make use of a couple other
plugins as well:

FAQPost question and answers to common question here in the following format:Q: How come I can't see anything happening?A: You'll probably need a on-the-map HUD. Additionally, you may need to add some base HRG/MRG/TRG to your characters.Credit and Thanks- I wrote this, J, or Jragyn, but J makes more sense based on how I setup stuff in the plugin.Author's NotesAs I mentioned before, this plugin works stand-alone, but is best used in tandem with a HUD or something... and probably an ABS of sorts.

I've never really submitted anything to these forums, so hopefully this is useful, not bug-ridden, and in proper format!
