■ Switch Line—Another Feature of Outline Editor that Visualizes Relationships between Event Triggers and Maps for Easy Management
As all users are familiar, an RPG game consists of many events, and many events often only appear when the player has performed a certain action. The conditions that the game checks and triggers the next event in a game is called a “Switch.”
As a project gets more ambitious, so too will the number of events, to make a compelling game. Naturally, this means Switches would also increase in order to control these events. In order to make the management operation more accessible, the “Switch Line”—another feature of the Outline Editor we introduced in April, is your new friend in RPG Maker Unite!
—Switch Line is similar to the Outline Editor we introduced in April—a feature that visually connects maps and switches for improved tracking!
—Switch numbers and the Event IDs they are related to are now easy to follow visually! Clicking on the Event ID also takes user to the Event Editor directly, allowing quick access!
—Setting Key Items as a Switch is also possible!
Switch Line is a very convenient feature that really helps make game progression control easy especially when a project gets more complex, filled with multiple switches and key items!
It is also great for those who wish to take a break in the development process, and greatly reduces the catch-up time when resuming!
■ Announcing the Release Date for the Official Tool PiXel ScaLer
We are thrilled to announce that PiXel ScaLer, the mini-tool that we mentioned before that could resize and past graphical assets into RPG Maker Unite specs, will be hosted in our RPG Maker Unite website and become available for download on June 30! Creators who cannot wait to convert assets for RPG Maker Unite should definitely give it a try!
■ Introducing the Last Two Default Characters
Today we are introducing the last two characters used in the Default Game!
Rosemary is a Paladin, acting as the Knight Commander of the Holy City and she is known for unmatched bravery in battle! Her iconic red-purple hair makes her a very recognizable presence in battle!
The seventh and last party member is Rengnar. A calm Cataphract (Heavy Cavalry) who is the leader of the Royal Knights!
