Introduction

The Elements & Status Menu Core plugin gives you more control over in-game elemental rate calculations, providing Trait Sets to streamline assigning elements to actors and enemies, and updating the Status Menu to display all that information properly.

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

  • Element Rate control from target side and user side.
  • Elemental Absorption and Elemental Reflection added.
  • Assign items and skills to have multiple elements.
  • Elemental rates can be adjusted from additive and multiplicative notetags.
  • Forcing Elemental Rates and nullifying Elemental properties.
  • Trait Sets added to mass assign traits through the usage of notetags.
  • Trait Sets used to assign Elements, SubElements, Genders, Races, Natures, Alignments, Blessings, Curses, Zodiacs, and Variants.
  • Randomized Trait Sets with weights to make enemies more dynamic.
  • The ability to change traits midway through the game by Plugin Commands.
  • Updated Status Menu Layout to display all this new information.
  • Control over the information category tabs in the Status Menu.
  • Change up the actor's Biography midway through the game by Plugin Command.

Requirements

This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.


Tier 1

This plugin is a Tier 1 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.


Major Changes

This plugin adds some new hard-coded features to RPG Maker MZ's functions. The following is a list of them.

---

Element Damage Calculation

Elements.png

Elemental damage was calculated in one very specific way in RPG Maker MZ: getting the target's elemental resistance found across various database objects and applying the damage to that rate. This plugin extends that by giving more ways to extend the target's elemental damage rate as add in a facet which introduces the attacker's elemental bonus damage, too.

---

Multi-Elemental Calculation

By default in RPG Maker MZ, if there are multiple elements assigned to an action, then the element with the highest rate is taken. This plugin will give you, the game dev, the decision on how this is handled: the default maximum rate, a minimum rate, a multiplicative product, an additive sum, or an average of all the elemental rates calculated.

---

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.

Element-Related Notetags

The following are element-related notetags.

---

General Trait Set Settings

ElementStatusMenuCoreTraitSets.png

ElementsStatusMenuCoreParams04.png

Trait Sets are new properties added to RPG Maker MZ through this plugin. They're used to streamline the process of applying traits to actors and enemies through the database.

Instead of having to manually adjust the elemental rate of each enemy, you can now assign them to a Trait Set (through the Plugin Parameters) and then assign that Trait Set to an enemy or batch of enemies instead. This means that all enemies with <Element: Fire> would be weak and resistance to the same elements determined by the Elemental Fire Trait Set.

These Plugin Parameters adjust how Trait Sets are handled on a general scale within your game.

Trait Set Types

ElementsStatusMenuCoreVariants.png

ElementsStatusMenuCoreParams05.png

Trait Sets are new properties added to RPG Maker MZ through this plugin. They're used to streamline the process of applying traits to actors and enemies through the database.

Instead of having to manually adjust the elemental rate of each enemy, you can now assign them to a Trait Set (through the Plugin Parameters) and then assign that Trait Set to an enemy or batch of enemies instead. This means that all enemies with <Element: Fire> would be weak and resistance to the same elements determined by the Elemental Fire Trait Set.

There are 10 different types of Trait Set Types out there that you can assign to actors and enemies and they all work the same way, just under different categories.

Changelog

Version 1.05: October 4, 2020

  • Bug Fixes!
    • Main Menu Portraits are now forced to pre-load prior to entering the Status Menu scene to ensure images will properly appear. Fix made by Irina.


Version 1.04: September 20, 2020

  • Bug Fixes!
    • The "Column 1 and 2 Traits" plugin parameters for "General Trait Set" should now work. You will need to readjust them again. Fix by Arisu.
    • The "Elements" Status Menu Categories tab has its "JS: Draw Data" updated to display the percentages properly for Dealt Damage bonuses. This won't update normally as it's a part of the plugin parameters. You would need to do either a fresh install, copy from the sample project, or change the code bit yourself. To change to code bit, look for this:
     let dealtText = '%1%'.format(dealt);

and change it to:

     let dealtText = '%1%'.format(Math.round(dealt * 100));

Fix made by Irina.


Version 1.03: September 6, 2020

  • Documentation Update!
    • <Dealt Element id Flat: +x%> notetag gets a more indepth explanation.
