Hello, I am attempting to make a game with puzzles only.

One such idea I had is the ability to move boxes a certain distance.

Problem is I don't know how to give the player the ability to move an event on their own. (I want them to press Z to pick up the box, and the press Z to place it back down, without conflicting with objects already in place)

Here is some screenshots to display the idea:

WorldTreeEvent1.jpg
Here we have the box the player has the ability to move (only boxes!)


WorldTreeEvent2.jpg
Here the player can move the box up to 7 spaces and place the box down.
I also wanted to create an animation for the arrow like in tactical games that show where the friendly unit can move.


I see there are some event move commands in place, yet still unclear how to utilize this in game. Give me the resources to figure it out or some suggestions on what to do from here would be much appreciated.

I'm not sure how best to have the character pick up something and put it down elsewhere, but the simplest solution to create is the "push block" type puzzles.

Just one command in an event does it. You found the event's "set motion path" bit, so just set that to "move away from player" for 1 tile with a "button press" to activate it.

I know this works in MZ but not sure about MV. It should work though.

How you choose to test for it's location is up to you since there are many ways to do that.

Mog Hunter's plugin - MOG_PickupThrow.js could do it:

Was hoping to have something a little more advanced than this. But, I suppose this should be a better starting point.

Thanks for the suggestion. I can't seem to get this to work though.

..of the major old school series that began in the 80s- early 90s, I still haven't beaten 'a' Zelda game. Mario 64 was the first Mario I've beaten. I don't know if I should give that honor to Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds(I currently own both). Well technically I've haven't beaten a Sonic either (Game Genie doesn't count =P).

Time to add the "headshot" concept into the game so that people may actually aim at the heads when shooting zombies and get massive damage and armor-pen bonus as rewards. :kaojoy:
(The red area is just for visually debug purposes right now. But, it's possible that I will add something that displays the weak spots of enemies in the future.)
Worked on a cutscene skip domino effect using Maker Systems' script as the basis. Basically if I have a batch of cutscenes in a row on different maps, now when you skip one cutscene it will skip the entire set. No more spamming X to skip a scene every new map.

Oh and it will work regardless of where you do it from in the set. Convenient!
seems absolutely WILD to me now all the hundreds of hours of work I used to do in 2k(3) over a decade ago with a resolution of 320x240. that seems so insanely TINY now, seemed so normal at the time!
