This plugin adds some new hard-coded features to RPG Maker MZ's functions. The following is a list of them.
Options Menu Scene
The whole scene is revamped due to all the new additions provided by the Options Core plugin. While basic functions will still work, do not expect everything to integrate into it seamlessly.
There are some extra features found if other VisuStella MZ plugins are found present in the Plugin Manager list. Most of these enable new options for the Options Core to utilize as the code for them to work is found in the newer plugins.
Each of these plugins have options that become available when installed together with the Options Core plugin.
The following are the options that have been added to the Options Menu. This is the default "General" category that appears with the plugin parameters. These can be added and/or removed. If a new option has been added through an update, then there's a likelihood of it not appearing due to the plugin parameters not being updated with them.
