Is there any good Zoom MZ plugin?

What I need is a plugin that let me set a default zoom that follows the player around and is blocked by map borders so that the black bars don't show.

Something like MBS_MapZoom from MV, but for MZ:

I'm searching for one all day but it doesn't seem to exist.

There are two that I'm aware of:

1 - On the DLC folder of MZ there is one.
steamapps\common\RPG Maker MZ\dlc\BasicResources\plugins\launch\ScreenZoom.js
2 - One that I did, but is basic stuff.

Thanks for the reply!

I tested both of them out but unfortunately none does what I need.

I was able to zoom with script calls in a parallel event (not really ideal for performance, but it is what it is), but I still need a way for the camera to be limited to the map size.

Maybe there is a way to do this with conditions or with a script?

Just to clarify, what MBS_MapZoom did was this: the camera always followed the player, but when it hit the borders of the map, it stopped in that position and didn't let any black space on the borders

That's what I'm looking for

Hey, my Tile-Based Scaling might be what you are looking for. I guess you would want to set the type of scaling to "Fixed to Zoom". You can use plugin commands to change the scaling through gameplay.

The plugin can be found on my generator at https://sirlegna.itch.io/sir-legnas-plugin-generator

If you have any questions or concerns, I am always around

Hey, thank you so much! This was exactly what I was looking for!
I just have one problem whit it, the menus seem to scale and distort as well. Is there a way I can fix it?

So, been working on sorting out a way to fix that.
Sadly, all my attempts have failed at scaling the map independently without distort of the on-touch destination icon.

Basically, the player press a tile, and a totally different tile is selected instead.

I'll be following for updates on this, hope you can find a solution soon!

Maybe this will sound kinda dumb, I have no idea how plugins like this work, but maybe look at other people's codes to see how they solve this?

I think the MBS_MapZoom I referenced earlier did the same thing as your plugin and the menus worked just fine, but I don't know if you'll find anything useful since it was an MV plugin and I have no idea how different the codes are for MZ.

I am working hard on it. I got a working prototype now. There are just these bugs that need to get fixed.
1. Need to auto-refresh scaling when you change the window size (old code does this)
2. Need to rescale the battle so it doesn't change in size
3. Need to rescale pictures so they don't change in size
