Required Plugins

The following plugins are required in order to use this plugin.

Place the following plugins above this plugin located in the Plugin Manager.

Yanfly Engine Plugins

This plugin is a part of the Yanfly Engine Plugins library.


This plugin requires YEP_BattleEngineCore. Make sure this plugin is located
under YEP_BattleEngineCore in the plugin list.

For Turn-Based Battle Systems like DTB (Default Turn Battle), letting the
player see the turn order visually can add a whole lot more depth to the
battle system. This plugin will add a display of icons showing the turn
order of the player's party and the enemy party within a corner of the
screen (modifiable).

NOTE! This plugin does NOT work with tick-based Battle Systems like ATB or
CTB! It is specifically made to work only with turn-based battle systems.



RPG Maker MV'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.


Insert the following notetags to give your actors and enemies unique turn
order icons.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Actor and Enemy Notetags:

  <Turn Order Icon: x>
  - This sets the icon used for the actor/enemy to be x.

  <Turn Order Border Color: x>
  - This sets the border color used for the actor/enemy to text color x.

  <Turn Order Background Color: x>
  - This sets the background color used for the actor/enemy to text color x.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Actor Only Notetags:

  <Class x Turn Order Icon: y>
  - This sets it so that if the actor is a specific class, the actor will
  get a specific icon used for the Turn Order Display. If the actor is class
  x, it will receive icon y.

  <Hero Turn Order Icon: x>
  <Warrior Turn Order Icon: x>
  <Mage Turn Order Icon: x>
  <Priest Turn Order Icon: x>
  - If you prefer to use names instead of class ID's, you can use the above
  notetag format. If the actor is the named class, it will receive icon x.
  If you have multiple classes with the same name, priority will be given to
  the class with the highest ID.
