Ever wanted to have a continuous stream of battles without the victory sequence appearing until the very end? The Chain Battles plugin will allow RPG Maker MZ to do just that. As the player's party progresses forward, they maintain their states, buffs, and debuffs. The such effects will keep their stacks and turns. Chain Battles will make creating a marathon of battles a possibility.
Features include all (but not limited to) the following:
This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.
Required Plugin List
This plugin requires the above listed plugins to be installed inside your game's Plugin Manager list in order to work. You cannot start your game with this plugin enabled without the listed plugins.
This plugin is a Tier 3 plugin. Place it under other plugins of lower tier value on your Plugin Manager list (ie: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
This is to ensure that your plugins will have the best compatibility with the rest of the VisuStella MZ Plugin library.
Chain Battle Carry Over
The following section will explain what happens whenever chain battles occur and describe exactly what is carried over.
HP, MP, and TP
HP and MP, by default, are static across battles and will not reset themselves at the start of each chained battle.
TP, however, will depend. If TP is preserved, then the TP values will be maintained as chain battles progress. If TP is not preserved, then, by default, the battler will gain a random amount of TP at the start of each chained battle.
When chaining into the next battle, the turn count will be preserved and then increased by 1. This means if you end the first battle at Turn 10, then you will start the second battle at Turn 11. This applies to TPB battle systems as well.
Troop Event Page Span
If a troop event page's span is set to "battle", it will be reset at the start of each chain battle. This means even if you are utilizing the same conditions as before for the same page, the same page's span will be reset.
You can setup certain Common Events to run upon achieving Victory but before the battle ends or moves onto the next chain. These are achieved through the new Plugin Commands added through this plugin. If multiple Common Events are queued, then all of them will run before the next victory phase.
If enemies revive in the middle of the Common Event queue, the queue is paused and resumed after the enemies are defeated once again.
There are some extra features found if other VisuStella MZ plugins are found present in the Plugin Manager list.
This plugin offers bonus reward multipliers for the Class Change System's CP and JP resource points earned from battle.
This plugin offers bonus reward multipliers for the Skill Learn System's AP and SP resource points earned from battle.
