Hello there!

This is kind of a weird question but I'll try my best to explain what I'm looking for.

I was wondering if there was a parallax mapping plugin or series of plugins that could change the sprite's appearance when in contact with a specific layer. Like a blend or a shader effect or something.

I attached an animated example below. Just click the gif to see what I mean. Any help would be lovely, and any suggestions too.

You don't actually need a plugin to do this. You can simply make the squares the house occupies as region 1 (or whatever region you want), then change the player's graphic if they're on that region. And change it back if they aren't.

Thank you for the quick reply!

This kind of works, but it's grid / square based and I think it would be really inaccurate with oddly shaped tiles, like the roof of the house, for example.

I make something like that, you like to have similair like this?

if so, it can be annoying, especially the shapes of it.
I got no Idea how to make it simplier to use yet, but it still works nicely.

while this was only a text, I do it differently and nicer for this, like a transparant overlay.

I just can't walk to the store for lunch without walking past people smoking. It not only smells bad, it's probably poisoning me. I'm afraid I'll eventually have to be hospitalized. I can't take another path because there's too much traffic and drivers in the plaza are reckless sometimes. I almost got run over once, even after looking both ways.
