    Anyone else play the Nep-Nep games? Remember the Stella's Dungeon mini-event from Hyperdimension Neptunia 2 and 3? Where you can select a bunch of dungeons to run an NPC through while you do other stuff.

    Would such a thing be possible with rpg maker? I'd think it would be but I'm thinking it also wouldn't be a simple thing to create.

    For those who don't know what it is:

    The possibilities would be pretty endless. You could send party members to a mine to mine for resources, you could send them to a gym/dojo/mission/etc to gain levels/skills/items/whatever, or you could send the reserve party members out to do things.

    I'm going to start working on this, I have a really good feeling it's going to be a TON of work.

    I think the biggest challenge will be getting it to work in real time and get the RNG to work in real time

    I think it would only be as difficult as you make it; meaning, a simple system would be easy to create, whereas a more complex system would be tougher. Can it be failed? Will the NPC levels/equipment determine what and how much is gotten upon completion?

    You can use this plugin and just set a timer for whatever event the NPC will go "do." http://sumrndm.site/timer-upgrade/

    I think your question is in the wrong forum, but meh. ^^
    I have a similiar mechanic in my project where I needed a timer to do stuff using variables. The answer for my problem got solved thanks to this tut vid:

    After throwing in some conditional branches and stuff, the system should work like in your shown vid.
    So basically, it's really simple, but it can get complex (like mobius mentioned).
