Hey everyone!  Due to a thread I saw, I figured I'd post this.

I was working on a project quite some time back that I never finished, so if you want to pick it up and work on it yourself, use the events as reference for your own project and/or just check it out and see what this is about, then go right ahead!

What this project includes is being able to customize the starting character by having the player choose their gender, sexual orientation, hair color and name.  This can help to make the player feel their choices influenced the gameplay!  How so?

In the project, after choosing a gender and sexual orientation, the character description will change appropriately, including whether you serve a Lord or Lady and how certain NPC's of your choosing will react to your character.  There is no scripting involved in the process of choosing and the only thing scripts help with is equipment, placing character description and various small things.  Everything is handled with one event, variables and a small collection of character images to show the choices made.

The event is commented and you can pretty much see what is going on.  If you're brand new to Ace and eventing is still something you're new to, this may be a bit over your head, but it can also help you to understand variables better and script calls.

I hope that this project can help you to have a simplistic, yet powerful and flexible character creation event in your game.  Enjoy!

That's quite a handy little tool. It's great that you've shared it! :D

Thanks.  I hope others can learn from it.  It really makes the gameplay a bit more customized and dynamic.  I kinda wished I had worked on it more.  I could have added way more customization, but ah well. lol

I don't see a delete button for the character naming?

Any chance you might write up something to go with it? I find it helpful if I have both written instructions and an example to follow.

I might try the mechanical bull at the fair on Friday... for one of the challenges, if you stay on for two minutes, you win $200. I might give that a try and see if I win--I'm pretty good at holding on to things.
Remaking a more streamlined version of my Remote Move map skill in MZ, just one switch and one variable to handle everything. If you seen the Move skill in Golden Sun before, moving far away items with your mind is pretty cool

I don't want to brag or anything but I was entertaining a woman the other night. I told her jokes while she bandaged my foot.
