Flying Battlers
Authors: game_guy
Version: 1.11
Type: Adds Realism
Key Term: Battle Add-on



Introduction

Script was created completely from inspiration.

Flying Enemies adds some realism to your game. It basically gives the appearance and feel that enemies are floating off the ground. Only weapons with the "flying" element can attack enemies that aren't on the ground. e.g. a gun or a bow. A guy with a sword couldn't very well jump 20 feet and kill something could they? (maybe, it is just a game)


Features


  • Flying Enemies

  • Any battler can fly now with states

  • Specific Spells and Weapons can hurt

  • Floating animation for enemies

#
# Features:
# -Flying Enemies
# -Flying Actors for like a "Float" effect
# -Specific Spells and Weapons can hurt
# -Floating animation for enemies
#
# Instructions:
# -Go to the config, set the following data there. To make a weapon hit a flying

#  skills, except some skills get exceptions. Read Notes.
#
# Notes:
# -Only weapons marked with the Flying_Element can hit a flying enemy.
# -Skills with a higher INT F then ATK F will hit a flying enemy since these

# -Skills with a higher ATK F will need to be marked with the Flying Element in
#  order to hit a flying enemy.
#
# Compatibility:
# -Not tested with SDK.
# -Not tested with any custom battle systems.

Instructions

In the script. In fact there is even a small notes section you should read. In fact, here are the notes visually explained.

Skills with a higher INT F then ATK F are considered "Magic" skills. So therefore skills like these will hit flying enemies regardless if they have the Flying element or not. Any skill that does not meet this condition must have the Flying element in order to attack Flying enemies. However, all weapons

Note how fire does not have the flying element, it can still hit flying enemies since in a sense its magic and you don't need to be next to the enemy
Spoiler: ShowHide

This is a skill used by a hunter with his bow. In a sense it should be able to hit flying enemies, but since its not "magic" it needs to have the flying element.
Spoiler: ShowHide


Any weapon you want to hit flying enemies with must have the Flying element.


Compatibility

  • Not tested with SDK.

  • Not tested with any custom battle systems.

  • Attacking flying enemies (and missing) will most likely work throughout all custom battle systems.

  • Animating enemy up and down may or may not work in any custom battle system.

Interesting. I think I'm going to remake Flame of Life Season 2 and add this in here.

I really like XP better then VX. Here's another reason :(
I made a signature!

Vexus

Sorry for the necropost but would it be hard to edit this script so that the "fly" effect could be given by a status effect too?

I got a cbs which has the sort of floating feature by adding a flying status effect and I would like it to be optional as I have some monsters that stay on the ground but got a skill fly that adds the status effect.

Thanks.

Honestly, I don't know why I didn't do that in the first place. Took two minutes to edit it in, actors and enemies can now "fly" or "float". To make an actor float, all they need to do is have a "Flying" state. Same goes for enemies. They can be flying by default or they can be inflicted with a flying state. Note I didn't test this so there might be an error but I'm pretty sure its right.

Vexus

Thanks that was fast :)

It seems to work.

Thanks again.

i keep getting this error:

line 113:NoMethodError
indefined method '+' for nil:NilClass

dunno what is causing it,I have not touched anything in the script.

Couple of things I noticed:
1. The array that is suppose to configure which enemies are flying also applied to actors (fixed it)
2. When updating the battle sprites, sometimes @battler was nil. This was most likely caused by parties not of size 4. Class Spriteset_Battle, for some stupid reason, likes to think there are 4 actor sprites to update (fixed it)
