Hey!

I need a plugin that is able to swap formation of battlers only,

this works:

$gameParty.swapOrder($gameActors.actor(1).index(), $gameActors.actor(3).index())

However this has the side effect of making the sprite you walk around as, also that character.

I need formation to only swap the actors in battle, not when in overworld.

that is not as easy as you think, because by default there is no place to store that info differently.
and your description is missing vital info as to enable writing that plugin.

1) what pattleplugins are you using? Because a lot of the more complex battlesystems add data to the battlers, and messing with that datastructure without knowing the other plugins needing it can break your battlesystem unless you're using only default battles.

2) should the battleformation be stored for the next battle, or is that a temporary effect that can be reset between battles?

I'm using YEP_Battleplugincore.

It should be a permanent change once the party member is added to the group. The main reason I need this is that battlers higher in formation number are layered over the previous two.

If there is a plugin to make battler 3 appear behind battler 2 and 1 then that would also be fine

that is usually called the Z-coordinate or Z-order.
and a plugin to give each battler its own coordinates (XYZ) on the battlescreen should be much easier to do than to change battler order, especially since a changed battle formation might not automatically change the Z-order of the display - most people think "order of faces on the bottom" when talking about battle formation, not position of the battlergraphic on the battlescreen...

So would this be possible? Is t here a plugin or script?

I know that yanfly's plugins have some options to change XY coordinates, but I don't use them and don't know if they also can change Z and which one of the battleplugins contains those options.

The ones for MV should allow you to change the home coordinate's Z value.

What ones? Plugins? Are there links to these plugins?

Yanfly's Battle Core (or possibly side view battle) should have home coordinate parameters for party members, and I think you can edit the Z as well as the X and Y.

Its only X and Y not Z in battle core unless I'm missing it

After doing some digging I came across people talking about

Sasuke KANNAZUKI's plugin SVActorPosition.js . Without actually directly linking the plugin itself. As if it was some mythical beast. But the plugin works great and I found it over at this Link

The sites in Japanese and forces you to register for an account but that is the only way I was able to find this mythical creature
