Author: Cutievirus
Version 0.6.1

A 3D rendering plugin for RPG Maker MV.

Wall tiles (A3 and A4) are transformed into 3D walls, allowing you to easily create 3D maps.
Regions and terrain tags can also be used to control the height of tiles.

The airship will collide with walls if it isn't flying high enough. However you can change how high it flies using plugin commands.

Plugin also supports 3D lighting as well as plugin commands to control the lighting and flashlights. Plugin does not support dynamic shadows, they don't work well with transparent textures in three.js.

You can control the camera distance, pitch, and yaw, and change between perspective and orthographic modes.
You can make 3D dungeon crawlers as well as isometric games if you want. You can even mix multiple styles into the same game, for example have the overworld be 3rd person or isometric, and the dungeons be 1st person dungeon crawlers.
See the screenshots below to see how it looks.

Download on Github

To install the plugin in a new or existing project, download plugin.zip and extract the files into your project directory.
Included in the zip folder are mv3d.js, and the required image files.
For the premium features, the premium plugin must also be installed.

Todo:
  • ✔ Load 3D models (premium)
  • Bug squishing
  • Improve performance
  • Control camera with mouse / touch
If you want to use this plugin commercially, I please either become a patron or purchase the plugin on itch.io.

In the past I've asked people to credit me using my forum username Dread_Nyanak, however going forward I would prefer if you credit me using the name of my website "Cutievirus".

The official website for mv3d will be located at mv3d.cutievirus.com, however it's still a work in progress.

Amazing! Imagine coupling that with my MMORPG Maker MV plugin! New possibilities!

I just tried to use this, and nothing happens. As in, still 2D. Really wish there was a better explanation on how this is supposed to be set up to used because it is clear this isn't plug and play, which the way you explain setting it up makes it seem like it is supposed to be plug and play.

Cool script, bugs I've noticed from simple plug and play is that it isn't currently compatible with graphical scripts (MogHunter emotion faces which uses pixiv and character creation type scripts.)

This is possibly due to the fact that the script tries to render a 2D image as a 3D whereas the other scripts process it as 2D.

Also, there are some weird stuff that happens when you try to add a ladder to a wall tile.

Otherwise, this script is really good.

That dungeon crawling image looks amazing. It seems like a super mode 7 xD

Could you open up the console with F12 to see if there's any errors?
You just need to put the MV3D folder in your project directory and load three.js and MV3D.js as plugins and it should work. (three.js needs to be loaded first)

Yeah, it won't work with a lot of graphical plugins. The 2D map isn't rendered at all, so anything that changes how the map and characters are rendered won't work with this.
Anything that changes the gui and menus should work fine though.

@Dread_Nyanak This is all the console gives. Completely blank project by the way.

@JtheDuelist the "=>" token is an arrow function, which was added in Javascript ES2015. If your MV doesn't recognize it, you must be using an old version of MV.
When there's a syntax error, the script won't load at all which is why you don't see any difference.

@Aloe Guvner I've always stuck with 1.5.2 because all the stability issues 1.6.0 brought scared me off of ever updating beyond v1.5.2. Also, if I update, other older plugins I use may break as well... So it is a "darned if I do, darned if I don't" situation. If I do update, I have to go and update ALL of my WIP projects, which there is almost 12 or 13 of, which is going to be another pain in the rear to do.

It's of course your choice whether to upgrade MV or not. If you're in the middle of a project, the general thinking would definitely be to *not* upgrade. However if you're installing a script like this, that is a massive change to how your game is structured so you're probably not in the middle of a project.

1.6.1 fixed all of the editor issues that happened in 1.6.0. The change in the core code is very minimal. Every person who reported that their "plugins broke" after upgrading turned out that they didn't upgrade correctly. Not guaranteeing anything of course, but the fears are wildly overstated due to user error.

You always have the option to transpile the modern Javascript into old Javascript if you don't want to upgrade, and if the author allows you to. Though that tutorial is over a year old and I've been meaning to update it!

Just added some plugin commands to pan the camera and also change the camera target.

@pasunna
Can you show me what issues you're experiencing? The default settings are pretty similar to what I used in the screenshots.

There are a few graphical issues in the plugin still, like some weird gaps between meshes even though the faces share the same vertices.
Also the textures look a bit rough when viewed at a sharp angle. This is mostly noticeable when the camera is in motion.

@Dread_Nyanak We need the demo to test it, bcs the help file isn't very easy to read, and recreate things.

Worked pretty well on my side. Just had some bugs with some events not being recreated on map change but it might come from a compatibility issue with another plugin (I have not tried it on a "clean project"). Amazing work!

Yeah, I'm still working on the demo project. I'll try to have it up within the next couple days, as soon as I get it in a presentable state.

Making a blue-magic-heavy game is very fun but there's a lot of extra hassle as well. Balancing skills for both enemy and player usage isn't easy.
BTW everyone on staff who made the forum jump, thank-you! This time I am not panicked and lost all rounds.
I'm not searching for bugs, just pleasant surprises, for now on ^^
Been a while since I've been here, whoops. My computer's been acting really stupid so I wasn't able to work on my projects, but the good news is I've got a new one, meaning I can get back to work. And I've got a nice idea in mind, I'll just need to find some good scripts for the Aesthetic.
Have a random update.
