This plugin creates a Charge Turn Battle (CTB) system using RPG Maker MZ's TPB as a base. CTB functions by calculating the speed of every battler and balancing them relative to one another. When it's a battler's turn, the battler will either choose an action to perform immediately or charge it for later depending if the skill requires charging.

This is a battle system where agility plays an important factor in the progress of battle where higher agility values give battlers more advantage and additional turns over lower agility values, which give battlers less advantage and less turns.

A turn order display will appear to compensate for the removal of gauges. The turn order display will show a preview of what the turn order could possibly be like. This turn order display is variable and can be changed due to player and enemy influence by using different action speeds, effects provided by this plugin that alter the turn order, and more!

NOTE To use this battle system, you will need the updated version of VisuStella's Core Engine. Go into its Plugin Parameters and change the "Battle System" plugin parameter to "ctb".

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

  • Full control over the TPB integrated mechanics converted for CTB such as speed, calculations, etc.
  • No more waiting for gauges to show up! In fact, you won't even see the TPB gauge in-game.
  • A turn order display that previews a potential lineup for how the participating battlers in battle will play out.
  • Notetags that give skills and items access to manipulating a battler's CTB speed.
  • Notetags that give skills and items access to directly manipulate a target batter's position on the Turn Order display.
  • These mechanics are separate from ATB and TPB itself, so you can still use either battle system without affecting both of them.
  • Through the Core Engine, you can switch in and out of CTB for a different battle system.
