LunaTechs MV/MZ Plugins & ToolsThis is the official LunaTechs plugin and tools thread. You can expect to find links to a variety of our plugins and tools that we'll be creating for both MV and MZ using our custom tooling. You can expect updates from us every Wednesday regarding new plugins and tools that we're working on for the RPGMakerMV and MZ community.
We're a group of plugin developers that have come together to create better plugins that work across both MV and MZ for developers. We love the community and because of that, one of our missions is to provide the community with a large selection of free MIT Open Source plugins as a majority of our contribution back to the community. We're taking the approach of being both a user and a plugin developer as we use these plugins to create our own games.
This is just the tip of the iceberg and we have much more to show later.
Luna surveyor is a debug tool that allows you to perform a variety of tasks in RPGMakerMV/MZ all through a simple UI.

Luna Text Speed Control
This plugin allows you to set up your own text speeds within the message window, along with setting defaults and allowing or disallowing forward skipping of the text when the mouse button or ok input is triggered within the message window.
Luna Unique Items

Luna Experience Share
This plugin allows you to modify how experience is shared amongst your reserved party members. By default RPGMakerMV/MZ only allows you to share all of the experience or none of the experience. With this plugin, you can change the rate to be whatever you want it to be for reserved members.
Luna Press Start
This plugin adds a small press start or any text you desire to the title screen, before opening up to the title menu. Similar to old school games and some new games to this day. The map mode variation adds press start when you enter the map if you decide to skill or not use the original MV/MZ title screen.
This plugin adds a new license option to the title screen which leads to a new scene for displaying any license information for your game from a text file. It will scroll through all the license information from the text file and display it on screen.
A list of separator plugins for sectioning off your plugins within the PluginManager list by their usefulness. We have different versions to suit your tastes.

Luna Minimal Map Inventory (Beta)
This plugin was made for a game jam and is currently tailored just for our game, but
will be updated later.
This plugin allows you to use up to 8 items from the map on your party leader.
It also prevents you from opening the game menu while the menu is open.

related to certain items in your game. Any item marked with the notetag <LNCFile> will have their
raw text showcased in the scene.
Luna Menu Disable
This plugin completely disables the menu from using on the map scene. This also removes the menu button in the top right corner from MZ.
This plugin allows for multiple splash screens to appear before your game goes to the title screen.
This one supports splash screens on a timer and also ones that you can click to advance to the
next screen. Each Splash is faded in.

LunaTea is a project developed in the Haxe programming language that we use personally for creating many of our cross-platform plugins. It is the base that we use to create the documentation for LunaLite(Typescript documentation for RPGMakerMV/MZ); it is also what we use to create LunaSense(IntelliSense for RPGMakerMV/MZ). This allows us to write plugins that target both platforms with a large set of features such as:
- Full access to the Haxe Standard Library
- Easily add your contact information through the attribution text
- Change your build process for each and every plugin you create
- Type inference and code completion while creating your plugins
- Compile-time checks to prevent null errors in your code
- Dead Code Elimination
- Add Prepend JS libraries to your code as part of a plugin
- Create plugins in parts via separate Haxe files
- No longer deal with the monolithic plugin file
- Generate build dates for your plugins
- Enhancements for classes and basic types through static extensions and abstracts
- Bundle Documentation With Code
- File watching; copies files to the game's js directory
- Automatic formatting of the file on save
- Backward compatible with MV through conditional compilation
- and much more!
