Was wondering if it's possible (allowed?) to use character parts made for MV with MZ?

I'm at a part in my own project where a region I'm working on is intended to have a Japanese theme, with the people living there looking the part. MZ doesn't have any suitable clothes that I can find, but MV has three Japanese character generator expansions on Steam. Will MV parts work for MZ?

I don't care about if the battler sprites line up since I don't plan on any party members to be dressed up like those, just want the overworld sprites, which look like they would line up and work just fine

Allowed: Yes if you own both engines.
Possible: Pretty much... Only SV battlers will not be a perfect fit.

A couple of frames in the SV battlers have a slightly different pose, which means the clothing will not line up with the character.

Long time back thought I saw some kind of notice or statement from them saying that you couldn't use resources from one version with another, for copyright reasons. That could have been referring to audio files like music.

Maybe 3rd party assets, like DLC?

As far as I know, the terms of use state that you can use all assets that come with any RPG maker in any RPG maker. This also includes VN maker, but it does NOT include Unreal or Unity.

I might be wrong, but... I think I am not. :p If I am that would be a very bad thing... Since I've been telling people this for years. Hahaha.

Nah, I am pretty sure it is allowed to use graphics and music from MV in MZ, including the generator parts. If I am somehow wrong, an admin or moderator should correct me a.s.a.p. (and warn pretty much everyone else, because this is the advice we give on steam for years).

Just finished and uploaded the delivery truck base/sprite sheet. I've been steadily replacing the default assets with early modern alternatives. The air-ship for a biplane, horse-drawn wagon for a delivery truck, and next a sailboat for a steam-powered passenger liner (think of the SS Olympic and RMS Titanic).
I caught a shiny magikarp on pokemonGO today AND finally saw Detective Pikachu and it was so cute and I'm still so hype AHHHHH!!!
one of the coolest things I've learned from the forums is the ability to give yourself a hitbox. I have a move you can do on the fields. shoulder tackle. thanks to the forums, that tackle triggers self A switches on some events. NPC's and the environment now react to the tackle. awesome.
I really liked how this one turned out! :kaopride:

Dragon Quest style enemy selection plugin work in progress:

It's a simple targeting system from the NES era. Select an enemy group; single-target skills will target the first enemy in that group.
