Overview

This script allows you to define skill groups based on skill type IDs.

For example, "Black Magic" might consist of "fire", "ice", and "lightning".

Some people might be able to use "black magic", whereas others can only use fire.

Rather than displaying 3 separate commands for each type of magic, you can use a skill type category to specify that all fire, ice, and lightning magic should be grouped under "Black Magic"

Features

  • Displays different lists of skills under the same list
  • Supports recursively defined relationships
  • Assign multiple skill type IDs to a single skill
  • Provides finer management over your skills

Screenshots

Skill group containing fire, ice, and lightning



Individual groups for each skill type



Usage

Define a set of skill types in your database (terms --> skill types)

In the configuration at the top of the script, just write which skill type contains what other skill types.



Code:
Stype_Table = {
   2 => [3, 4, 5],
   8 => [6, 7]
 }
The first entry means that skill type 2 contains skill types 3, 4, and 5. In the screenshots above, "Magic" was skill type 2, and fire/ice/lightning are 3/4/5.

To assign multiple skill type ID's to a single skill, tag the skill with



Code:
<stype: 1,2,3,4>
For whichever skill type IDs you want.

Notes

When I say recursively defined relationships, I mean like



Code:
1 => [2,3]
2 => [4]
3 => [5]
This means that if you can use 1, then you can automatically use 2, 3, 4, and 5 as well because they are all part of the same tree.

The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
Gamedev for relaxing? yes or no?
I've been having a rough couple of months and as such let down some friends of mine in the RPG Maker community. I still need time to get back to my normal self, but it's nice to be back, to read articles, and to design again (albeit at a slow pace). Hope to give updates on Kid Crescent soon.
Friendly reminder that you don't have to be able to do absolutely everything. It's okay to scale back features or assets if things are too much - especially if you're the only one working on the game! And you can always add things in later. <3
My new cutscene system makes it so much easier to add parallel stuff happening in the background, I can easily fill the whole screen with action.
