Introduction

NewGamePlus Preview1.png

New Game+ is a great way to provide replay value for your game. It lets the player re-experience the game in a different way with either carried over items, to carried over party members, to carried over skills, switches, and variables even. There exists many options to change how New Game+ will work for your game.

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Select which switches, variables, actor data, party data, and system data is carried over into a New Game+.
  • Use notetags to prevent specific items, weapons, armors, or actors from carrying over their data.
  • Two different ways of starting a New Game+.
  • One way is by saving a New Game+ save file and loading upon it.
  • The second way is by immediately using the current game's save data and starting a New Game+ with it.
  • Run a dedicated Common Event after a New Game+ has started.

Requirements

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.


Tier 3

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.


Instructions

NewGamePlus Preview1.png

So how do you start a New Game+? There are two ways to do it:

---

Method 1: Save File with New Game+

Use the Plugin Command from this plugin for "Save: New Game+" from the map scene. The save menu will open and prompt the player where to make a save file for the New Game+ file to be at.

When the player loads up that file, a new game will start instead with all of the carry over effects listed in the Plugin Parameters.

---

Method 2: Transition into New Game+

Use the Plugin Command from this plugin for "Transition: New Game+" from the map scene. The game will immediately fade out and start a new game with all of the carry over effects listed in the Plugin Parameters.

This is useful for the games who have decided to make one save file games.

---

Extra Features

There are some extra features found if other VisuStella MZ plugins are found present in the Plugin Manager list.

---

Class Change System VisuStella MZ

Skill Learn System VisuStella MZ

This plugin allows the functionality of carrying over AP, CP, JP, SP if you so wish. You can change the settings in this plugin's Plugin Parameters.

Notetags

RPG Maker MZ's editor is unable to allow for custom traits/properties that a game dev may wish to associate with a database object, event, map, etc. Notetags are used to work around such limitations by allowing the game dev to tag certain traits/properties using specific Notetags declared by the related plugin.

Here is a list of Notetag(s) that you may use.


The following are notetags that have been added through this plugin. These notetags will not work with your game if this plugin is OFF or not present.

New Game+-Related Notetags

  New Game+. If this is used on an actor, the actor will be in its default
  state as if a new game started.
