Gabe MZ - Fog Effects (v2.0.1)

How to use?

The first step are setup the Plugin Parameters.

The Plugin Parameters:

The Fog Settings Parameter:

This is the Fog Settings parameter interface:

Click on a empty line to create a new effect. When you do this a new window with settings options will open.

Now just configure a new fog effect as you wish.

Adding a Fog Effect to the map:

After that, you can add the fog effects you’re created to the map using a specific Note Tag in the Map Notes or using the provided Plugin Commands.

When adding a fog effects through the Map Notes, it will be perpetually linked to that map. You can, through the Plugin Commands, temporarily erase all fog effects from the map, but when moving from one map to the other the effect will be returned.

Adding a fog effects through the Plugin Commands makes it temporary, when the player moves between maps it will be discarded.

There are circumstances for each case, choose the one that best suits you for use. Both modes can also be combined and used simultaneously.

The Fog Effects Layers:

The fog effects are added to the map through a layer system. Whenever you add a new fog effect you will need to define a layer for it. The higher the layer id, the higher the priority of the fog effect over the others. If you define a fog effect to take over an already occupied layer, the previous effect will be deleted so that the new one takes its place.

The Map Note Tag:

<addFog layer: id>      // This tag links the defined fog effect to the defined layer on the map.
                        //    layer: The layer id
                        //    id: The fog effect id

Usage Examples:

<addFog 0: 1>           // This tag adds the fog effects of ID 1 at layer 0.

<addFog 4: 3>           // This tag adds the fog effects of ID 3 at layer 4.

<addFog 2: 7>           // This tag adds the fog effects of ID 7 at layer 2.

The Plugin Commands:

These are all existing settings and options. Just remember that the fog images must be in the folder img/fogs/.
