BIGFriv submitted a new resource:

How to add Field Effects to your game - A tutorial of how to create Field Effects, like Pokémon Reborn has.

Have you ever wanted to have Field Effects in your game?
It's personaly, one of my favorite mechanics of any fangame, so I'll teach you too how to do it too.

What are Field Effects?
If you have played Gen 6 or Gen 7, then you probably know about Terrains (Electric Terrain, Psychic Terrain ...)
Field Effects, are in a way, the exact same thing, but they are present from the very start of the battle, and are map based.
Because of this, it can be used to make fights more interesting...

Oh my God! One day i tried to copy like Terrains works in Reborn but i dont got it :/ Thank you!

But, well, i just want to add to change the backgrounds when pokemon use Terrains moves (Electric, Grassy, Psychic, Misty) or abilities (Surges by Alolan Guardian)
I have to do all? Im confuse, sorry.

The last part i stoped was:
Code:
    if isConst?(type,PBTypes,:ELECTRIC)
for i in 0...4
if @battle.battlers[i].effects[PBEffects::MudSport] && !@battle.battlers[i].fainted?
damagemult=(damagemult*0.33).round
break
end
end
if @battle.field.effects[PBEffects::MudSportField]>0
damagemult=(damagemult*0.33).round
end
end
#Field Effects Same-Type Boost
case $fieldeffectsbg when 0 # Electric Terrain if @battle.field.effects[PBEffects::ElectricTerrain]>0 && !attacker.isAirborne?(attacker.hasMoldBreaker) && isConst?(type,PBTypes,:ELECTRIC) damagemult=(damagemult*1.5).round end when 1 # Misty Terrain if @battle.field.effects[PBEffects::MistyTerrain]>0 && !opponent.isAirborne?(attacker.hasMoldBreaker) && isConst?(type,PBTypes,:DRAGON) damagemult=(damagemult*0.5).round end when 2 # Grassy Terrain if @battle.field.effects[PBEffects::GrassyTerrain]>0 && !attacker.isAirborne?(attacker.hasMoldBreaker) && isConst?(type,PBTypes,:GRASS) damagemult=(damagemult*1.5).round end when 3 # Psychic Terrain if @battle.field.effects[PBEffects::PsychicTerrain]>0 && !attacker.isAirborne?(attacker.hasMoldBreaker) && isConst?(type,PBTypes,:PSYCHIC) damagemult=(damagemult*1.5).round end end In PokeBattle_Move (Step 2) Thank you!!! <3 #### BIGFriv ##### Mr. Bigglesworth Member Oh my God!

Thank you!!! <3

Hmm for what you want to do you kinda of just need step 1 I believe.
It's kinda late right now. But ill try to do what you need later.
In my own game I transformed Electric Terrain into an Electric field anf that took a while (its something I was going to talk about in the next tutorial update).
But Ill try to see how to do what you want tomorrow!

@battle.pbChangeBGSprite

Use ctrl+shift+f to find in drought or a similar ability and paste the code changing it a bit and adding the above code

Here I have created an ability SNOWCALL to imitate the field effect created by BIGFriv in the tutorial

Btw is it just me or even if you don't have the field active the effects take place

hey, thanks for doing this! there's a lot of moving parts to field effects depending on what other custom effects one wants to add and such, so i've never made a proper tutorial, but this is a really nice start.

could you add "Blind Guardian" to the credits list though please? he was the one who first made a way to change the background on the fly, and played a big role in getting this system off the ground.
cheers!

I know this is like a whole year later, but I added those to the script if you're still interested.
Check the last section.

I'm trying to addap it to v18, but there are sintaxis and codes i can't find or can't figure which is the new code.

For example, i can't find the part of the code containing def pbBackDrop.

I've been talking with Friv recently and he's been adapting it for v18. Said he should be able to make it plug and play soon too.

Like Mashi said above, I am currently working on updating it to v18, and also making it as plug and play as possible.
So far most things are working fairly well!
But dont expect it anytime super soon.
My job is taking too much of my time nowadays

Hi BIGFriv! I am new to Relic and also to scripting, so my knowledge is minimum. I was looking forward this script for my game and I really thank you and everyone who did collab to create it.
I, of course, am running V18.1 and installed it today. Without editing, I pasted the script and ran the game, just to check for an error before I started to edit it. I entered a wild battle battle and after the BGM for the battle played, and the animation ran, I got an error, straightforward.

The scripts were installed in the order you suggested: First graphics then battle, both above main.

If you know anything or I skipped something important I will be very grateful!
