Hmm... The demo's working great but I keep getting a

"ReferenceError"

"Map is not defined"

When I try to start another game with the script (While also copying one of your events over to the new game exactly)

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I'm not sure the effect of both scripts together is good, but you can have clouds and fog outside from kaus script

and darkness inside dungeons from my script.

If you want both scripts to work together, this is how you can fix it..

- Make sure Terrax Lighting script is loaded before Kau's overlay (put it above Kau's in the plugin manager)

- Take an text editor and add one line to Kau's script in the first routine you find.

Spriteset_Map.prototype.createLowerLayer = function() {
    Spriteset_Base.prototype.createLowerLayer.call(this);
    map = $dataMap;
    this.createParallax();
    this.createTilemap();
    if(map.meta.ground || map.meta.all) this.createGroundMap();
    this.createCharacters();
    if(map.meta.par || map.meta.all) this.createParMap();
    if(map.meta.fogName) this.createFogMap();
    if(map.meta.light || map.meta.all) this.createLightMap();
    this.createShadow();
    this.createDestination();
    this.createLightmask();              // <----- ADD THIS LINE
    this.createWeather();
};

That's all there is to it.

Finally a Lightning plugin! Thank you so much Terrax! I've been testing it on my project and works well without problems, and it's pretty easy to use.

However I got a few questions/suggestions...

1. Is it possible to change the Player radius in-game?

2. The "black layer" that covers all, can be not-so-black?

Oh man, so simple and without any use of images! There's only 2 errors/typos I found. A typo with "Your done, it's that simple." instead of "You're done, it's that simple." and that #000000 is actually the hex code for black instead of white (which is #FFFFFF).

So if you use #000000 there won't be an effect on the event. These are just small things to clean up in the help files!  :)

Other than that, I really like this script and the overlapping light effect; It looks really good!

Nice work on this Terrax!

1. Yes, ill make a script for it

2. I tried, but it gives some weird effects to the masking.. sorry, it won't work

Update 1.0.1 is out, fixed some typo's and included a script to alter the radius with a plugin command.

(Light radius 100 changes the radius from the default to 100)

So fast Terrax, thanks! 

Anyway, if you set the radius to something like 700 does a nice effect like the one I wanted to get.

So this MIT licence means it can't be used in a commercial game without it becoming free?

*edit* Never mind, I believe I've found my answer.

Hi Terrax. For some reason I just can't get the plugin to work. When I use the demo it's just fine, the lighting works just as intended. If I recreate exactly the same thing in my maps nothing changes. I have the Kaus's mapping plugin and did as you suggested by adding the line of code and placing your lighting plug in above Kaus's to have it compatible. Maybe I'm missing something simple or just not doing it correctly? I'll keep trying to find what I'm missing here. Sorry to bother, thanks if you have any insight :]

Edit: The ring of vision around the character appears, so that's working. It's dark around them and I can adjust that. But the torches aren't lighting up like in the demo.

does this allow the creation of dark scenes with subtle lighting? not just pitch black with certain areas lit?

So as long as I credit you and have a link to that Wiki page I can use this in a commercial game down the road?

For the effect of suble lighting you can set the player radius to extremly high (700 or higher depending on your resolution) or you can place an item with high radius and darkgrey light, it will cover the intire map and create a more suble effect.

@wrigty12 hi! thanks for showing interest in my work. Sadly the tablet I'm using broke, so I wasn't able to create anything for weeks. Got a new one with display, I'm still not used to it though, so I'm still practicing, doing basic drawings again. Also I'm in my last year of college. Thesis, projects and other activities takes most of my time ;_;.
I'll get back to it whenever I get a free time.
Any artists here planning on participating in the Inktober art prompts this October?
It's right around the corner.
It's rpg maker related so I'll post it here, I worked on a little free rpg maker zine and this was my piece. Play Grimm's Hollow if you haven't already, I liked it a lot. (i don't remember if posting a link to a product even if free is allowed via profile posts, so if anyone knows lemme know)

Suddenly arrived to work and got the pink slip on a contract O_O wait, did i forget something??? (sobbing in corner rn)
