    Author's Notes

    This blends very well with my Weather Event System. Also, if you want your days to occur only on the world map to give the impression of days passing by while traveling longer distances [when clearly you're not], then just turn off the master switch for this system when you move off the World Map, otherwise it will continue in all your other maps. Also, you don't have to use the switches set for Dawn, Noon, Dusk, Night, those are there incase you wish to have certain actions occur during certain times of the day. [In the demo: 1 phase = 1 minute 20 seconds real time; Therefore 1 day = 5 minutes 20 seconds real time.]

    RMRK+ Format

    This script is RMRK+ Format.

    Looks good grafikal. I'll add it to the roster.

    EDIT::

    It does reserve though - if a person were to use the system, then they would have to either not be using switches 2-5 and variable 1 or they would have to go through the event system and change what variables/switches are used manually. I can't add it to the roster unless you go through and change those to reserved IDs. The common event does not have to be reserved though. Switch 1 - I'd permit it to be RMRK+ even if this is not reserved, but you should instruct the user that they will have to change the value there in the Common Event. It'd probably be better to reserve though.

    Don't mean to bring this back from the dead, but is it possible to change this system so it changes seasons as opposed to day/night? Or would that be too hard?

    just rename the variables (which doesn't matter since the names of variables are arbitrary anyways) ._.

    Alter the timer if you want to make each phase longer to appear more like a season than a day. If you want the tiles to change and what-not, you'd have to make each map 4 times, 1 for each season, then probably throw in a new variable checking to see what map you're on. Then depending on the season, you'd have to be auto teleported to the same map, but in a different season. However, that gets retarded pretty fast and messes with any active events that you might have going (certain ones depending on what you're doing), like quests. If you have an NPC in the summer that asks you to go get something, and you take forever to do it and come back in autumn, you'll have to wait 2 more season to complete it, which is dumb.

    So, uh... Just change the variable names and the timer length >.>

    Hahahaha...

    Anyway, I had this system in one of my games, but I couldn't figure out who to credit. Now I do know. Thanks. lol
