KExpBooK ACE

Introduction

Yes, I know that this is a scriptlet but I thought that some of you might have been thinking about an easy way to make items become actual experience books that allow your heroes to earn some experience points. Well, here's my version of such a script.

All versions of my scriptlet will let you freeze or thaw an actor's experience gaining feature.
By default it is enabled. (@exp_frozen = nil)

You will need to use the following note tag: <exp 100>

Its value could be 100 or anything you game devs can come up with.

Ruby:
# * KExpBooK ACE
#   Scripter : Kyonides Arkanthes
#   v1.0.0 - 2022-01-02

# Let items become books filled with experience points by adding a simple
# note tag! * Offer only valid for Actors aka Heroes! *
# You can also freeze the experience gaining feature at any given time.
# Item Note Example: <exp 500>

# This scriptlet is free as in beer and speech!

# * Script Calls * #

# - Get a Party Member
# actor = $game_party.members[ActorIndex]
# - Get an Actor listed in the DB
# actor = $game_actors[ActorID]

# - Freeze or Thaw the Experience Gaining Feature
# actor.exp_frozen = true or false # Default: nil (here the same as false)

module KExp
  BOOKS_NOTE = /<exp (\d+)>/i
end

class Game_Battler
  alias :kyon_exp_book_gm_btlr_item_apply :item_apply
  alias :kyon_exp_book_gm_btlr_item_test :item_test
  def item_apply(user, item)
    if actor?
      item.note[KExp::BOOKS_NOTE]
      book_exp = $1.to_i
      gain_exp(book_exp) if book_exp > 0
    end
    kyon_exp_book_gm_btlr_item_apply(user, item)
  end

  def item_test(user, item)
    return !@exp_frozen if actor? and item.note[KExp::BOOKS_NOTE]
    kyon_exp_book_gm_btlr_item_test(user, item)
  end
end

class Game_Actor
  attr_accessor :exp_frozen
end

Terms & Conditions

The only thing you need to know about it is that it is free as in beer and speech! :wink:

Well, if anyone has a funny, simple, easy RM game they want me to playtest/review, I would love it.
Someone close to me straight up told me they didn't think my relationship with my girlfriend would last. No lead up, very bluntly. Like it's obvious or something. Trying not to let it get to my head, but it's hard.
The distraction would be a life saver.

My first foray into a plugin that I plan to release. Working on something for those who want to set up a Dragon Quest style battle HUD with minimal fuss. Includes the ability to round the battleback corners to fit your windowskin and, of course, front-view animations.

Do you ever wonder where the heck everyone is going at 9:00 at night? Like... guys, go home! Get some sleep! Me? Oh, I'm out to get pizza 'cause I decided supper time was 9:30 tonight.
Updated my map with new terrain, improved the water and added some fishes, also added a beautiful rainbow!
