Kai Monkey's Character Creation with Races
Version 3.0




INTRO
Welcome, all, to the third version of Kaimonkey's Character Creation with Races! Now MORE powerful than ever before. Although the script is still plug-in-and-play, a number of feature have been added which, if the user puts in a little extra time, can add a huge amount of depth to a game. GONE are the days where the player is forced to use just one party the game maker though up! Now the player can create the perfect party for him or her, every time they play your game!

Features
Base:

  • Allow Players to select from a selection of Races, Classes and Appearances.
  • Limit the Classes available depending on the Race chosen: Dwarves can't cast magic you say? No problem!
  • "Gender" system sets a variable depending on Appearance chosen, allowing the game to react to the player's choice of Gender (Or anything else the Appearance dictates in your game
  • Easy Config that allows you to tell your players the story of your world from the very start

New in Version 3:

  • A description box gives the player vital information needed to make informed decisions
  • The script can be called multiple time on different actors, for the first time allowing the player to design their entire party
  • Define an alternate set of options for character creation in your game: If you want to, at some point throughout the game, to allow the player to customize an actor being added to the party. You may have, for example, one set of options the 'Friendly Bandit' who joins the player near the start of the game, a different set for the 'Demigod Ally' who joins right before the final battle, and a different set still for the optional 'Mages Apprentice' which the player is rewarded for completing all the quests in the Mages Guild

Script:

Additional Option set:

Basic Config
The config is quite simple, and most of it is explained in the Script's config section itself. If you have any problems setting up this script for your game, just post here and I will
do my best to help you.

Starting Character Creation
When you want to call the script, do the following

1)Ensure that any character you want to call the script on has no name and an "empty" appearance
2)When you want to call the character creation scene (Often, at the very start of the game)
a)Create and event, and use the Advanced -> Script action and type



CharCreationManager.setActorID(1)SceneManager.call(Scene_CharacterCreation)


(Note, if you wish to call the script on a character who isn't the first actor in the database, change the "1" to the number of that actor)
b)Add a Timing -> Wait (one second)
c)run the Process Name Input event action, on that actor
d (Optional)Then using an conditional branch run any other effects you only want to effect certain races, by checking the Variable defined in the main config (By default 25).
e (Optional)Then using an conditional branch run any other effects you only want to effect certain genders or appearances, by checking the Variable defined in the main config (By default 26).

f) if the event is an Autorun event, erase the event, so it does not repeatedly call the character creation scene
Example:

Advanced Config
Multiple Character Creation Options

Spoiler




You may want to define an alternate set of options for character creation in your game: If you want to, at some point throughout the game, to allow the player to customize an actor being added to the party. You may have, for example, one set of options the 'Friendly Bandit' who joins the player near the start of the game, a different set for the 'Demigod Ally' who joins right before the final battle, and a different set still for the optional 'Mages Apprentice' which the player is rewarded for completing all the quests in the Mages Guild.

To do this you should copy in the Additional Option set script along side the main script, and follow the config described within the script. You can have as many different option sets as you like.

When you call the character creation scene, instead use the script:



CharCreationManager.setActorID(2)CharCreationManager.setOptions( MagesGuildOptions.new)SceneManager.call(Scene_CharacterCreation)


Where "MagesGuildOptions" is replaced with the name of you options set, and "2" is replaced with ID of the character you want to be customized



Customizing Class Descriptions

Spoiler




By default, the script tries to guess what a class is like by looking at its best stat, most common Skill Type and the first/last skill it learns. It uses this to try and create a description of the class for the player.
If you wish to override this, got to each class and put the following code in it's notes section:



<desc Use strength and training to defeat your foes />


Where the "Use Strength and Training to defeat your foes" is replaced with the description you want for your class. Note that descriptions longer than 4 or 5 lines will not fit in the box



Terms of Use:


Free to use for non-commercial projects, however you should PM about licensing for commercial projects.


Finally
"I hope that the Config section is easy to understand, and that this script does everything you want it to! If not, simply post here and I will do the best I can you help! -- Kaimonkey"

Licence... Now that'd require foreplanning wouldn't it...

Basically you can use it in anyway you like, just Credit Kai Monkey/KaiSalmonkey/Kai Salmon and ideally email me any project you use it for.

If anyone wants to use it commercially, (Although I doubt I'd ever be that lucky) try and get me a free copy :p

Also I've edited the script above to be the latest version. I don't know if it was already up to date. But it is now

EDIT: Okay, so now all three options are unlimited :)

I think this script is fantastic, works really well!

I was just wondering, is there anyway to make it so when I have dialogue that the player's character is involved in, it will show their portrait based on their race/gender, etc?

Cheers.

Yes, thank you very much for the update. :) Everything is working smoothly, and after getting a little tip on variables from the .net site, this is the perfect character creation script. Credit will be given, as well as an inside look of the project when I get to that "let's bundle this into a demo" point. :p

Wow! This is beautiful dude, I loved the script!

I have a little question though, can I use the script to create more than 1 character? I mean, I want to create the main character and something like a pawn, a second character that will help you... (Dragon's Dogma influence haha) Is this possible?

You don't need one.It's basically Plug N' Play.

All you need to do is Edit the script in the config section a bit for your liking.

There is enough comments/description for you to learn what to do in the script itself.

Demos are only for Lazy people to be honest.

Hi,

I hope someone still there, because I have some issues with the script. How can you have more than 3 races ? Each time I tried, I have always this :

undefined method for        (the line 259 of the script) add_command($data_classes.name, :class,true)

 

Excuse my English, I speak french, thanks in advance

 

EDIT : I Used graphics who didn't exist, and now it's work perfectly ! So, thanks for the script !!

Hey everyone, I'm new to Ace, trying to get a handle on things. I haven't been able to get this script working, at all.

I have tried to follow the instructions to the letter, but they aren't super friendly for a total novice like myself. The script doesn't ever seem to fire, just the second page with the name event.

Is this the recommended method for getting a good character creation system into the game, or is there a better / newer one?

Thanks!

So, uh, has anyone tried buying any resources from KokoroReflections? Because I've been looking for a 'buy' button on the site for like 10 minutes now and can't find one.
Any also thought it's too cringy to put the word "and you" in your credit as a special thanks?
Cause that's what I thought...
