In some RPG’s, using skills over and over will result in some form of skill mastery, effectively increasing the damage output, decreasing the cost of said skills, and/or lowering the cooldown duration of the skills, too. This plugin lets you accomplish such by adding in a Skill Mastery Level mechanic.

The Skill Mastery Level mechanic works like such: when an actor or enemy uses a skill in battle, they gain mastery EXP. Once the mastery EXP reaches a certain threshhold, that skill’s mastery level will increase, giving it the desired mastery effects, of which can be increased damage, decreased skill costs, or decreased cooldown duration. Each of these aspects can be adjusted globally or individually from the formula used for the EXP required per level up to the damage increase, cost alteration, or cooldown durations.

Equipment Set Bonuses plugin for RPG Maker by Fallen Angel Olivia

Our talented plugin creator friend, Fallen Angel Olivia, releases another plugin: Equipment Set Bonuses!

This is a RPG Maker MV plugin that allows you to set equipment to be a part of various sets.

The art (sprite, face, battler) for an actor can also change based on the number of equipment sets worn.

This is a paid plugin that will be sold for $15. Since the plugin just launched, it will be 20% off for a week. Be sure to grab it!

In RPG Maker MV, events can only trigger when you are either standing next to them or on top of them. This plugin lets you bind their activation to different events onto regions, making them trigger if the player is standing on the designated region first before talking to them through the Action Button, Player Touch, Event Touch, Autorun, and/or Parallels giving them multitudes of ways to trigger events. All of these can be done by simply adding Comment Tags into an event’s page.

This is different from Region Events, which causes a Common Event to autorun once the player has stepped onto one of those regions. This plugin binds actual map events to regions instead.

Event Proximity Activate!!!

In RPG Maker MV, events can only activate when you are either standing next to them or on top of them. There is no activation proximity range that can be used to activate some events from afar. This plugin gives you multiple ways to activate certain events from a distance, through means of a square area around an event, a radius, row-centric, or column-centric. These new activation proximity ranges can be coupled with an event’s triggers: through the Action Button, Player Touch, Event Touch, Autorun, and Parallels giving multitudes of ways to activate events. And these can all be done by simply adding Comment Tags into an event page.

This plugin requires YEP_BattleAICore. Make sure this plugin is located under YEP_BattleAICore in the plugin list.

By default, if an actor has the auto battle trait, it will cycle through each one of its learned skills (whether or not it has access to the skill type doesn’t matter) and selects the hardest hitting skill of them all. This setup may work for some auto-battlers but not all of them. What this plugin does is it incorporates the A.I. Priority system from the YEP Library’s Battle A.I. Core for actor auto-battlers.

If you don’t have YEP_BattleAICore yet, please download it from here.

Plugin Optimization Updates for Passives

YEP.013

YEP.117 - Passive Aura Effects

Both Auto Passive States and Passive Aura Effects received optimization updates as of this update.

I’ve been receiving reports from a couple of game devs saying that if they have too many passive states on at a time (namely, 50+), the game gets lag spikes regularly. This happens especially if there are too many passive conditions present. It took quite a bit of work to get this matter replicated for me, but the problem should be fixed (or at least, reduced) for the time being.

Please go to each one of these plugins and download their new versions as well as updating them for your game(s). Your games should run faster now with less lag spikes caused from passives themselves!
