Hi all, just wondering if there are databases out there that has been prepopulated, free or for sale? E.g A downloadable MZ project with more classes, weapons, enemies, items, skills and states all pre-populated. Just asking. RMVXA had a lot more enemies and weapons by default.

If you do a search, there have been threads listing projects that are unencrypted so you can open them in the editor.

You wouldn't want to just copy directly from their databases, but you can certainly see how they're made.

I think part of the reason there aren't more is because all of that should be pretty specific to your game. Why would a player want to play games from different people that all have the same enemies, weapons and skills? There's enough stigma about RPG Maker games being released using default content :stickytongue:

A lot of the database "comment section" is used for plugin atributes (like item max quantity, skill cooldowns) stuff that is not native to the unmodded maker engine so importing pre existing databases could have the issue of a full notetag field for stuff you dont even have the plugin for, confusing even more new users :kaoswt:

the database was reduced from what was there in Ace because many users deleted extra entries as a first step.

however if you had checked your program directory, you would have found a second set of database files there that contain a database similar to the old ones.
Just copy the files from new_data_fantasyEN into a new project (NOT into the new data folder)

Hi Andar, I don't seem to have that folder in my program directory. Mine is Steam version. Is that the reason?

I get it, but what I really wanted was more templates + samples that we can tweak rather than create everything from scratch from ground up. e.g VXAce weapons sounded a lot cooler rather than just Iron->Mythirl->Dragon.

So I managed to scare my chief. Between shifts I had an appointment with my psychiatrist, so prior to it I'd told him "If I ain't coming today, they've kept me there.". Then as I was asleep, my phone died. So I overslept and through the entire time I was unreachable.
I spent so much time toiling in VX Ace frankensteining scripts together only for MV to come along and just... have everything.

The overworld tool system in particular I thought was gonna take me a million years to recreate, but nope. Thanks Moghunter.
Going to go live way earlier than usual tonight, pretty much in 20 minutes, purely because I'm bored. :LZSlol:

So... I'm gonna be a parent... XD
