In RPG Maker MZ, tilesets are used for mapping purposes. Tileset A is used for drawing land while Tilesets B through E are used to add doodads. But in RPG Maker MZ, doodads added by Tilesets B through E are locked to the grid and add a rather unnatural feel to it. This plugin will allow you to break free of the grid and add doodads unbound by the grid. Doodads can come in all forms, from large to small, static and animated, you name it!

There are two plugins for Grid-Free Doodads. One is the system, which has all of the data contained for how doodads are handled in-game. The other is the in-game editor, which allows you to add, remove, and edit doodads during Playtest mode. These are separate so that when you deploy the game and want just the doodad data to remain without the in-game editor, you can leave the editor out. Or in the event there's ever an external editor, you can use that instead.

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

  • Gain the ability to add doodads onto the map through outside of the grid.
  • Or lock them to the grid if that's what you want.
  • Add doodads from specified image sources, from the icon sheet, or from the map's current tileset, too.
  • Doodads can be animated, too.
  • Apply a variety of settings to your doodads, ranging from blend modes, to scaling, to hue changes, tone shifts, blur effects, and more!
