Apply common events to specified regions! Simply by stepping on a tile marked by that region will trigger a specific common event!

WARNING: Keep in mind that if you apply this in areas with step encounters, it will not cause the encounter countdown value to go down. This is how RPG Maker MV handles it. The same way if you were to lay out your map with touch-events that trigger common events, the encounter countdown value would not go down either. To get around this, within the common event used, place a script call with $gamePlayer.updateEncounterCount().

Introduction and Instructions

Please wait while you are redirected...or Click Here if you do not want to wait.

There are 255 Regions you can mark on your map. You can set it so that when players step on those specific Regions, a Common Event will play each time they step on it. To do so, bind a Common Event’s ID to the Region number in this plugin’s parameters. It will make it so that any tile with that very specific Region ID to trigger an on-Player Touch event using the Common Event ID that you have marked for it.

Keep in mind that if any common event occurs during a touch input, it will clear the touch input as intended by the game engine.


You can use this notetag inside of your maps.

Map Notetags:
<Region x Event: y>
If the player steps onto a tile marked by Region x, it will run the common event y. This will override the default settings marked in the editor specifically for that map.

Happy RPG Making!
