Map Drops

Author: Tsukihime

Overview

This script allows you to discard items from your inventory and onto the map.

You can then pick it up later.

Features

  • Drop an item onto the map, either manually or using script calls
  • Dropped items can disappear overtime (decay time)
  • Customize decay times for individual items and equips
  • Dropped items are displayed using their icons
  • Add map drops using script calls

Usage

Go to your item menu and press the A key (game "X") to drop an item.

Then see it on the map. The key is customizable in the configuration.

To add a map drop using script calls, use



Code:
add_map_drop('w23', amount)
add_map_drop('a12', amount)
add_map_drop('i1', amount)
Where the "w" means weapon, "a" means armor, and "i" means item. The number corresponds to the database ID of the selected item.

You can specify a specific x,y position on some map.

By default, the position is your player's current position, and the map ID is the current map's ID.



Code:
add_map_drop(string, amount, x, y, map_id)

add_map_drop('a3', 1, 4, 5, 2) #create item in map 2 at position (4,5)
add_map_drop('i1', 2, 3, 3)    #map_id is omitted
add_map_drop('w2', 1)          # x, y, and map_id omitted)
You can also use script calls to drop items from your inventory



Code:
drop_item(string, amount)
Items will be dropped where you're standing though.

You can set decay times for map drops.

If decay time is not 0, it will disappear after that many seconds.

You can choose whether dropped items will disappear or not.

To specify decay times for individual items or equips, tag them with



Code:
<drop-decay: n>
There are also some configuration options.

Notes

Does someone want to improve the script by providing a nice confirmation window as well as a number input when discarding?

Also, creating the chest opening animation is kind of tedious. Someone want to do that? It's basically printing out the page list for an existing chest event and then copying all of that in script.

This script provides a way to create drops, but you need to figure out how to make the script calls yourself in your battle system.

oddly enough, at this point... 3 major things have kept me from porting my project to MZ... animations, and that's mainly because they don't match the artstyle of my game. and two... I NEED a YED Sideview Battler like plugin and I have yet to see one. 3rd, I don't have the money for all the stuff I need plugin wise. and I already have it on MV... lol
Generally speaking, would there be interest in some form of tutorial regarding general project management? I see there are a lot of indie/self-taught devs around here, and looking back i feel like there was a lack of resources on how to properly manage a project that might take several years to finish
