Introduction
This is the main thread for all of OcRam RMMZ -plugins!

Terms of Use: Click here

* = Free for commercial use also!

core.png
*OcRam_Core
is required by all other OcRam (MZ) -plugins. Purpose of this plugin is to keep code base minimal, optimize memory - and CPU usage.

time_system.png
OcRam_Time_System will add highly customizable Time System to your RMMZ -projects. Includes map/menu clocks, dynamic seasons, months, weekdays and much more!

weather_system.png
OcRam_Weather_System
will add highly customizable Weather System to your RMMZ -projects. Includes weather pools, enchanced RMMZ weathers integration to Time System (not required) and much more!

movement.png
[NEW] OcRam_Movement
will enable diagonal and pseudo-pixel movement for you RMMZ -project! Supports all default input devices: gamepad, mouse/touch and keyboard!

lights.png
OcRam_Lights
will add light layer to your RMMZ -projects. Light sources comes with all possible colors (and can even rotate colors) and several types (flickering, pulsating, fire, normal, strobo, flash light etc...) ...Oh and events can have multiple light sources!

audio.png
OcRam_Audio
will give possibility to play several BGS at the same time. Events may emmit also DYNAMIC sounds with desired radius and other parameters! Create example rivers, camp fires, beach etc... It's nice to hear the closer you are the louder you hear (also possibility to AUTO PAN!)

layers.png
OcRam_Layers
display ultra fast parallax layers or dynamic scrolling/looping tiled layers (even in title/battle for fog, sandstorm etc... effects). This plugin also offers plugin commands to show, move, tint, rotate and erase pictures!

passages.png
OcRam_Passages
this is must have if your game has several floor levels (bridges, cliffs etc..) and want to easily create in-depth effect. Easily prevent event interacting between different floor levels but it is also possible allow interacting for desired events at any level. Even AUTOTILES can be drawn above player!

labels.png
OcRam_Labels
show labels above characters. Just write <label:My event> to event note field. Labels can have also proximity sensor to show label when player is close enough! Proximity labels of course require more computing (but it is very well optimized).

parallels.png
*OcRam_Parallels
is your plugin if some events need to be called (refreshed) on scene start (after other scenes like menu/battle) OR when a variable/switch has been changed. OPTIMIZATION is way to go!

Hey there!

I have two questions about the lights Plugin.

1. Is it always needed to tint the map to see the lights or how does this work
2. Is there an option to set a light source for a event and then block the shine of the light for specific region IDs (for example having a normal lamp lighted but it should not shine to much so its "out of the map".)

Thank you for the message,

I will investigate real-time shadows and additive lights after I have released my demo -project. So it might take awhile.

Are you sure it's not event/player light? Because in my project I can turn off terrain lights.
the origin light source is a event light.
But underneath the terrain is switched off so i thought this cancels the event light for this terrain.

Can u check how i did it?

1599230112728.png
This is the event ive done


And this is how i setup the rest
1599230153839.png set the terrain ID to 2

Then deactivate the terrain id 2 with this command
1599230217025.png


but the result is still showing the light

and the first question i had can u please also give me an info to this?
1. Is it always needed to tint the map to see the lights or how does this work


Thanks a lot i really thank you for this awesome work, if i can get it done as i want it to be, i will give u some money for this! Thanks

Terrain lights have nothing to do with event and/or other light sources. Terrain lights are ment to light up for example entire river etc...

If you wish to turn off light just put self switch A which leads to empty event page.

Below is example from up coming demo -project.

ok i thought i could use it like "Hey on this terrain is NO light".
That way i could say that the light source is only showing in one direction.

Is this a straight port of you mz version, meaning can I use your mv demo as a guide?

Thank you for the message,

It is about 85% same, but made some adjustments for MZ - Especially plugin commands are totally incompatible.

Also OcRam_Audio -plugin notation has been changed from <aex...> to <audio...>

But other than those it should be all ok :)

For now yes "Light layer BG" command is required for any light source to show up.

I will investigate additive lights (those won't require any light layer) after I have finished my MZ demo. But that might take a while.

Hey OcRam,

first of all I love your lights plugin!
but it seems your Core Plugin doesn't like the Quest Plugin from VisuMZ don't know whats wrong =(
its not throwing any errors or so...tested it with only these two plugins in a new project.
when I enable your core plugin it just kinda disables all my Quest categories and I cant see the quests it kinda greys them out...weird.

is there any chance you could check and see whats wrong? would really appreciate it
would love to use both plugins =/
cheers

Edit: made 2 screens first one is without core plugin second is with core enabled..

Thank you for the message,

Seems like this Quest Journal is paywalled plugin (can't download it to test / fix it).

And another thing is that Visu -plugins are obfuscated so can't promise compatibility with them. But I will do what I can. At the moment my plugins works with basic Visu plugins which are free to download (with their default parameters).

Possible bug, the weather sound effects do not play (rain/storm/blizzard) only the thunder plays apparently. tried it in my current project and blank one, same thing.

I really get the feeling I should be doing regular YouTube videos whenever I make something cool in my game, instead of waiting for massive changes. But not going to lie... I always feel like it's never quite enough to merit an update, until it's a drastic change. :kaoswt:
