Now that RPG Maker MZ is out there, there are probably people out there that might have wished for a different style for the character sets. Don’t get me wrong, the chibis are cute and enable people to have a good workflow when creating them, but especially for games with more serious undertones, people could want something with different proportions. Today we have two artists to be featured and some additional honorable mentions!
In this week’s Resource Highlight, we’re jumping into the world of plugins! Sometimes you just want MZ to do something different than its default, and that’s where plugins come into play. From easily letting your players know what they found in a chest to creating battle action sequences that would put suplexing a train to shame, Visustella’s plugins give you a great place to start building the game of your dreams.
With the release of MZ we’ve seen a resurgence of plugin creators making codes to take our games to the next level, so today let’s take a closer look at one of them! Caethyril’s MZ Plugin thread contains a bunch of incredible plugins that bring all new effects to your development process, from making adding new battle encounter messages simple to building a whole clickable menu out of pictures and common events
For this week’s Resource Highlight, we’ll be looking at someone who’s done a little bit of everything. Materials by Haydeos! is a great thread to explore if you're looking for a little inspiration for battles and maps! If you own MV then you can use his great edits to take your game to the next level.
