I wish to make a skill that spreads the next attack to all enemies.


How it will play out:


Turn 1: player uses spread (no damage done this turn)


Turn 2: player uses (skill) (skill hits all enemies, not increasing power of skill or mp cost)

I've moved this thread to MV Support (Game Mechanics Design is for discussing the design of mechanics, not for getting help implementing something). Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

Ideally, the Spread skill would set a state on the user for 2 turns (the first turn is the one on which you used Spread).  And then you'd have some fancy JavaScript plugin that would check for the Spread state and adjust the targets whenever you pick an attack.  I tried to make a plugin to do this but I'm a complete JS noob so it failed miserably.


A JS-free workaround would be to have a duplicate of each skill and make the duplicates apply to all enemies.  Have one skill type for the single-enemy attacks and one skill type for the multi-enemy attacks.  Then it would go like this:


Spread skill > sets the Spread state


Spread state > Adds the multi-enemy skill type and seals the single-enemy skill type


The only major downside (besides messiness) is that your actors would have to learn both copies of each skill at the same time, which would look goofy when you play it out.

ok hear me out here: if the only way my brain can describe things is like with colors is this normal? Like I've described a smell as "dark green and fuzzy" and a taste as "dark blue" like is this a normal thing that happens to people or am I just going insane?? o.0
I'm sitting here, programming, when suddenly, in the distance, I hear a deep booming shout, "Dovahkiin". In an instant, my mind and body is pulling me away, my fingers twitch and notepad++, almost by itself, turns off. The Steam starts to rise and a big green play button appers and I am teleported to Skyrim, because, I am, the Dragonborn! 200 hours played last three weeks, omg o_O
Shora Lighting Plugin version 1.5 are out! Wanna add more features to it, but just fixing the bugs is already a pain :kaocry: .

I wonder how one goes about picking a good font for a game. I find the default kinda lacking, but you gotta pick a font that's legible ya know.
