In the last video, we learned how to make the Stockpile ability. The ability will stack upon itself each time it’s used up to a max stack of 3. This time, we’re going to learn how to make the Swallow ability, where it consumes the Stockpile and heals the user’s HP based on how much was consumed.

Insert the following Lunatic Mode code into the Swallow skill’s notebox. Change the values to reflect your game’s settings.
<Damage Formula>
// Check if stockpile heal hasn't been calculated yet
if (!this._stockpileHeal) {
  // Default the user's stockpile to 1 stack
  a._stockpile = a._stockpile || 1;
  // Calculate the amount of HP to be healed based on the stockpile stat
  this._stockpileHeal = a.mhp * (a._stockpile * 0.25);
// Set the heal value to the calculated amount
value = this._stockpileHeal;
</Damage Formula>

<Custom Requirement>
// Default the user's stockpile to 0 stacks
user._stockpile = user._stockpile || 0;
// Check if the stockpile stack is 0
if (user._stockpile <= 0) {
  // Set it to false
  value = false;
</Custom Requirement>

<After Eval>
// Remove the stockpile state from the user after being used
