Actor cloning
Version: 1.0
Author: dricc
Date: May 18, 2011

Version History


  • <Version 1.0> 18.05.2011 - Original Release

Based on a suggestion on this forum , i have created a script to allow the cloning of actors . It's not a difficult one , just a work on the classes game_actor and game_actors .

It is quite easy to use , you made one actor called
Code: [Select]
"soldier<model=1>"
And you can add 3 of these in your party like this :


In the "recruiting" event , use the "Modify party : Add member" as usual
But before , you have to put the beginning level in a variable (32 in my demo) or the default level of the actor will be used (1 in most cases) .
Yes , it means that a variable must be reserved for the script .

(optional) The script can suggest a name for the clone .
The list of these names can be changed in the script . And you can have many lists .
put in the actor name :
Code: [Select]
"soldier<model>"
if you don't want the script to suggest . In this case , the clone will have "soldier" for name .

(optional) : The script can ask the player to rename the actor added and display the status screen :

(i think it should be "him/her" instead of "him" ... You will find easily where to change this , i think )

Demo 1.0 :
http://www.mediafire.com/?vz90uuvw2s32g69

NOTE : it is compatible with most of the "large party" or "reserve party" scripts .
It seems to be compatible with GTBS also (i made a quick test only) .

ADD-ON : "hue" or how to clone and recolor !
A "hue" is what you see when you are changing the picture of a monster . I made this available for actors , so the clones can now be unique .
If i say "add-on" , it's because it is another script and you delete it if you don't want to have this (especially to avoid incompatibility issues) .

Have a look :
Spoiler for:

Is it Ralph or Hulk ? :)

1.1 version with this add-on :
http://www.mediafire.com/?r7cq71e972bwi93

Future version
I have some ideas :
- actor firing : it is not possible : you cannot use "modify party : remove actor"
- random equipement : But is it really useful ?
- Evolutions : the characset/faceset and class can change .
If you have more ...

Wow, this looks great! I've been waiting for you to post this.
However, I'm not a fan of loose windows (i.e. in the second screenshot), but that's my own obsessive compulsive-ness, nothing for you to worry about.
Besides, if I were to use this in a game, I would edit the windows' positioning to suit my needs.
Perhaps those two windows would look better on the left side of the screen, because the top one blocks out a bit of the equipment display?

Or 'them' and that would cover both (or any other if you wanted) genders in once.

Definitely nice for games with potentially infinite characters like a tactical style game.
(Why do I always feel like it's the end of the world and I'm the last man standing?)

Hey , that's a good idea . Yes , i can make something more customizable .

@LoganForrests : I agree that for 4 hero teams ... i doesn't have a great interest :) But it works fine in GTBS . And the GTBS works more with classes than actors , so no problems for the GTBS setup .

Well, I look forward to seeing a revised edition (i.e. text changed, windows moved...), but I'd gladly translate it and do those things if you'll let me. I'd also add in some more customization.
I know some French, it shouldn't be that hard for me to translate what little errors and French is there. Would you let me do that?

Yes , you can translate if you want .

There is a solution to make it easily . try to copy from an empty project (save them first) :
Skills.rvdata
States.rvdata
Armors.rvdata
Items.rvdata
Weapons.rvdata
System.rvdata
And it should be OK because i have also started from an empty project .

There is not a lot of text in my script : just the "join" text . The status screen is full sandard , the menu also .

I didn't use our demo to retrieve this script (got it from my request) so I may have messed up but this is my error:

as soon as I try to load the game

I will try it using your demo and I'll let you know if it works

Just a quick question for RPGMakerVX52,
Why do you post before you try everything to let people know what you're going to do when you can just, like, do it?

My demo is fully functionnal , of course :)
Tell me what is the line 130 in your version ...

I made a 1.1 demo . the new functionality can be used to recolor the cloned actors . If you look at the first picture , you will see that the 3 warriors looks like twins . Now , they can be randomly colored.

I can't believe I haven't seen this before. It's a really great script!

This would work exceptionally well with Jameswhite89's enemy capture tutorial, that makes enemies into allies (yet it seemed unavoidable that you could only have one of each enemy). That's where this script comes in handy.

Thanks for creating it, dricc. :]
