Would you like to provide some visual indication that a state has been added or removed?
By default, when a state is added, there isn’t really any visual indication beyond a little icon in your party menu, or a little icon over the enemy’s head.
If you’re using the side-view battle system, you could potentially add some side-view overlays to show the state.
However, what happens if you have neither overlays nor icons? And there’s no message that says “State was added” or “stated was removed”?
This plugin gives you the tools to play some animations when your state changes!
Plugin: download here (right-click, save as)
Download ths plugin and place it in the “plugins” folder in your project’s “js” folder. Then open your Plugin Manager (F10), double-click an empty row, and select the HIME_StateChangeAnimations plugin.
Once it is in your list of plugins, turn the plugin on.
To have an animation play on the battler that has a new state added, note-tag states with
<state add animation: ID />
Where the ID is the id of the animation to play.
To have an animation play on the battler that has a state removed, note-tag states with
<state remove animation: ID />
A single state can have both add and remove animations.
