I've been waiting for days and days for someone to actually make a parallax script with several features but can't wait any longer so I've made my own version. If you're familiar with my old script Ultimate Overlay from RMVX and VXAce well I dont need to explain anymore. But for those who are new to RPG Making. Here's a brief introduction for you...
Ultimate Overlay Plugin will allow you to add custom images (more layers) into your map that will scroll with the map so it sticks like its really in the map. This is already accessible through the parallax feature if you add ! in the first of the image's filename in the parallax folder. but that limits you to have the overlay one. the one that goes over the character. so Here's Ultimate Overlay comes handy.
Parallax Layer (New)
Character Layer (Default)
Tileset Layer (Default)
Parallax Layer (Default)
Light Layer is the highest layer and used for creating Light Effects such as Sunlight Rays, or Street Lights, or any Source of Light.
Fog Layer is used for creating a Fog Effect in much that is moving automatically by settings. Used for Mists, Desert Sandstorms, Clouds etc.
Shadow Layer used for displaying Shadow layer.
Parallax Layer (New) is used for adding an image in the map that will be OVER the character. You can also use this Layer to create shadows for your tiles
Character Layer is the layer of your characters, events and npc. etc.
Ground Layer like Parallax Layer (new) it is used for creating custom images but UNDER your characters.
Tileset Layer (Default) is the layer your tilesets are set on.(Unless they are set as * in priority it will show higher than Ground Layer))
Parallax Layer (Default) is the lowest layer and can only be seen if There's no Tileset Layer above it.
and Here's a Sample Fog File: (save in parallaxes folder by default)
- Use the Notetags in the map ONLY IF you're going to use images based on its mapID to automatically display specific layers.
- You don't need to add Notetags if you're going to use the Plugin Command.
- The Plugin Command is a Powerful tool. You can use this option anytime to change overlay images in any given situation, with or without notetags.
- All in all, There's 2 ways of displaying overlays.
1. Thru Notetags. (Automatically Displays notetagged overlay with the mapID as filename)
2. Thru Parallel Processed Event Plugin Command. You need to specify the filename.
It's your choice and they're situational. ^_^ Enjoy Mapping.
If you have any questions or suggestion to be added in the plugin feel free to post and ask. I'm happy to help.

1. You can use the Parallax (New) Layer to create your own shadow images for the map. It helps great than having an autoshadow on MV.
2. You can set <fogOpacity> from 0 to 255, 0 Being invisible and 255 being more visible. Not adding this tag will set to default 255.
3. You can use decimal places in <xMove> and <yMove>
4. <xMoveositiveNumber> moves the fog to the right <xMove:NegativeNumber> to the left <yMoveositiveNumber> down and <yMove:NegativeNumber> up.
5. You can use the ground layer for making flowers, photoshopped roads and pathways.
6. You can use Multilayer Fogs for setting up an animated scrolling water just set it up to 255 Opacity and -1 Depth so it will be displayed below the tilemap and let it scroll the way you want it
If you will report an error or a bug or you're just having a problem with displaying layers. please make sure to do the following while doing so.
-Attach Images of Error Code, Console Error Texts etc.
-Screenshots of Plugin Parameter Settings, List of your Plugins in order.
-If Necessary, Provide the layer image you want to display
-Elaborate the problem to avoid repetitive questions.
Q: My Overlay is not Displaying, Am I missing something?
A: Check your Map Notetags if you indicated the right tags, if not try creating an event and use parallel processing using this plugin command: "Overlay layertype filename" (more info in the help file) Also check if you have your switches on for it to be displayed. If you can't display a light layer, make sure you're using light colors for your light layer as it is displayed in additive blend (dark colors will be removed).
Q: Can we have an animated overlays?
A: No, you can't, though you can try using plugin command to call different images of layer but i doubt it will run smooth.
Q: Can I display multiple fogs in 1 map?
A: Yes you can by using the plugin command "addfog" (refer to help file) also make sure you put wait 1 frame each plugin command to give it time to call each one at a time.
Q: How do I create the image of layers on my Map?
A: Get an Image Editor Program with layering features to design. Try using Orange Mapshot or something similar for capturing the whole map as a skeleton base for your parallaxing.
