So I wanted to have a feature where you could only add/remove party members at home base however the problem is when I do this it reverts them back to their default settings and to Lv.1 and resets their equipment when I add them back later, plus I have to set numerous events to switch specific party members out and replace them with others, the game is supposed to have numerous characters so you can mix-n-match parties to what you need for certain points of the game, but I wanted to have a single event that lets you switch between any of the characters with one event rather than several

when readding the party member... make sure initialize checkbox if OFF (not ticked) since if you tick it will reset the member to what you set in database.

This did help solve one issue, tho now I have to figure out how to have a single list of characters to switch in and out, you know almost like an equip menu but for playable and it can only be done at home base

make the home base a map with one event for each actor.
If the actor is in the party (that is what the condition on the event pages means) it will be an empty bed and triggering the event will ask if you want to leave that actor at base.
If the actor is not in the party, the event will show the actor sprite and triggering it will ask if you want to add the actor to the party.
depending on your game you might need a third page of an unused bed that triggers nothing if you have to find the actor in the game before it becomes available in the homebase.

it can be a bit tricky for a new user if you have problems with page order and event conditions, but that is one of the (in my opinion) better ways to handle party management compared to a simply party screen.

new mechanic in battle where you can mentally erase enemies when you deplete all their MP instead HP. this gives you a special item of their "memory". it's pretty to do in battle so far.
Apparently MZ lets you preview move routes in the move route editor without having to start up test game. That could save a lot of time during development compared to MV, especially for a long game that uses a lot of event movement for cutscenes.
