Howdy! So I'm very new, I bought the game when it came out but only recently really started experimenting.


My main question for now is; How would you best go about making an visually upgradable base. I plan to make some sort of home camp/base that my players can return to. And throughout the course of the game you will be able to upgrade NPC's and buildings. Obviously the shops and such are easy. But what I'd like to know is how you would go about upgrading the map itself.


Example: Player upgrades base to lvl 2, which adds a new building to the area. Would you change the map entirely by creating a copy with the new addition and just copy over all the npcs so they all still work? Would that create load issues?


Thanks for the support in advanced.

I'm not familiar with the MV plugin scene but somebody might have made something specifically for that kind of stuff. Otherwise I'd recommend doing it using events. You could load the building pieces into a characterset, arrange them on your map as transparent events, and have them show their graphic/become impassable when a certain switch was activated. A bit complicated, but it would work and save you a crazy amount of maps. I've done it a few times in Ace, just playing around, and it's not too hard to implement.

Thanks for the response.


I was thinking of trying that actually. Copying NPC's and and such over and over is bound to leave room for errors anyway. I'll try that and see how it works out for me! Thank you very much!

I haven’t worked on my game in a while. Tomorrow might be the day.
*squeals* :kaoblush:


I've been experimenting with improved memory management again, which allowed me to include items to increase player path length. These are both 44 grid spaces long, and stable. :LZSexcite:
I FINALLY DID IT! 5 years making my very first game and I just officially released it on STEAM..... OMG..... I can say I finished a game! The feelings!!!!!
Stream will be live shortly! I am going to be playing some Among Us! Feel free to drop by!

tv program always get the ratings (it's the reason why drama series has 1000+ episode),also full and nonsense of censorship (weird blur, a scene getting cut because the unconvenient viewer,but it unconvenient to me either. you never see what the original is)

i know the reason is to take cover the viewer from the negative thing,but i just laughing and mocking of them that they're always suck :guffaw:
