I'm mainly asking in hopes that someone else has already implemented this in their own game and can give me some pointers.

What I'm looking for is a set of plugins for RMMV that are compatible with one another (or can be made compatible with small adjustments) and provide the following functionality:
  1. Visual equipment for armor (weapons optional) on map sprites - battlers and downed sprites not needed, faces might be nice, but also not necessary. Preferably with an option to recolor equipment graphics (i.e. two different pieces of armor use the same sprite with different hues, so only one image file is needed for both of them) Alternatively: Multi-layered actor sprites where the graphic for each layer can be changed via script or plugin command.
  2. The ability to use character sprites with different numbers of frames (at least between 2 and 8). Ideally with an option/default setting to loop the animation starting from pattern index 0 all the way to the end (e.g. 0,1,2,3,4,0,1,2,3,4....) instead of the default 1,0,1,2.
  3. The ability to specify various animated poses for actors that work with both visual equipment and different frame numbers.
  4. Retaining the ability to deploy the game a) with encryption and b) for web (which rules out SRDude's character creator that only runs on NodeJs - which I only realized after spending ages making it somewhat compatible with Galv's character frames and adding more poses).
So far, I'm aware of TAA_CharacterPoses (frames and poses), Galv's Character Frames (frames), MBS Visual Equipment (VE), and Rexal's visual equipment plugin (VE, poses, recolorable, but not supported anymore(?)). All of them do part of what I want, but I haven't tested them for compatibility, and there are likely other ones as well. I'm fine with having to write my own patch for it, as long as I have somewhat of a base to work from; I'd just like to find the plugins that are most likely to work before I start coding and setting up my images.

Any help is appreciated!

Edit: I'm currently working with the Rexal and Galv plugins, and it looks like I might be getting somewhere with some edits to Galv's plugin... will have to do more testing.

A woman gave me her number without me even asking for it. Then she left because she had other patients to see.
oh, hey, I forgot about all this!

my old project got abandoned after I started working too much on stuff I'd already worked on - plus, starting to hate the story I wrote for it. Then, well, a lot of serious life **** went down. I ended up moving across the country, cutting off some people, etc. - **** was rough.

So, uh, I guess I'm back for now? Funny how things work.
I'm glad I'm sticking to my guns on having fighting game mechanics in my game, from what I've read, it's not for everyone. but for the most part, I've made it so you don't have to use them motion inputs for attacks if you don't want to.
And my project's just entered the Lunar New Year Sale 2022... Let's see if it reaches it's goal of $ 7,77.
Ohmygoodness I played Dicey Dungeons for the first time last night. Gave me SO MANY IDEAS for how to fix Heidi.
