Both random encounters and on-screen encounters are pretty limited in what they're able to do in RPG Maker MZ. This plugin expands their functionality with some unique effects added through this plugin.

Both types of encounters can benefit from having more control over the occurrence of Preemptive and Surprise Attacks. These can be enforced through Plugin Commands and set up in a queue.

On-screen encounters can utilize alert functions that will cause events to chase the player (or flee from them) once the player steps within their visible detection range.

On-screen encounters can also utilize new functions added for use with the Conditional Branch to determine which direction the player has approached the on-screen encounter event from.

Random encounters can utilize repel and lure effects to nullify any random encounters for a certain amount of steps or to increase their rate of occurrence.

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

  • Take control of battle advantage. Enforce preemptive attacks, surprise attacks, neither, or chance it.
  • Battle advantages can be set up in a queue for more interesting gameplay.
  • Events can be given alert functionality to chase the player if the player steps within their vision range.
  • Use Terrain Tags and Regions to set up tiles that will block detection range through line of sight usage.
  • Events can trigger themselves upon touching followers instead of just players.
  • Events can lock themselves in the direction they're facing when interacted with to make it easier to apply side attack and back attack effects.
  • Random encounters can be bypassed through repel effects.
  • Increase the rate of random encounters with lure effects.
