For those of you who are familiar with Diablo 3s paragon level system... I want to set something like this up for my game. I have a few ideas of how to go about it but I want to see if anyone has some feedback.

So basically when a character hits lvl 50... I want them to max lvl. At this point they will no longer gain traditional levels. However, they will gain paragon levels, which will give them incremental stat increases with a much greater exp cost.

Anyone have any approaches or plugins that would be useful.

From what I remember, the paragon system was almost like a "stat distribution system", wasn't it? I imagine a quick google search would yield a multitude of results of that kind.
However, you could also just adjust all the stat gains post level 50 to be more... well, whatever you think it should be, and instead alter it so that at level 50, it suddenly requires a huge amount more to level.

To accomplish that, you could leverage Hime's Exp Tables.
The stat gains would have to be manually handled by you via the editor, though.

I have spent a lot of time working on this. Hime's Exp Tables didn't really work for me. I tried to use Yanfly's subclass plugin with their class change plugin. This seems to get me close as I can use the subclass as a paragon level system.

I'm a bit snagged with having unlimited levels on my subclass. I also am using the stat allocate plugin, but I'm having difficulty setting it up so that I gain the allocatable points when I want to. I have been trying to use job points too but those aren't really attached to experience.

Let me be super clear about exactly how I want it to work and maybe that will help me get some good suggestions:

1) Level up to 50, unlock paragon levels
2) Every paragon level gain gives an actor +1 stat that is allocatable
3) Paragon levels need to basically be unlimited but just scale to the point where the gain is super slow at a certain point.

One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
anyone know of a place I can promote my game? sorta like game awards but for indie devs, like a place where I can drop a trailer and like stir up some hype

That moment when you came up with a very good game title, but when you searched it, it has already been used... T.T
