Anti-Player Stress plugin for RPG Maker MV
A downloadable tool
This is a RPG Maker MV plugin that will change various parts of your game to show that you care for your players' mental healths to make it less stressful for players to play through. Some changes are made for the purpose of reducing stress while other changes are made for aesthetic reasons to make the game look more pleasing on the eye.
Here is a list of everything that is changed:
Center the text in the title command window. This is because left-aligned text on that command window makes the screen look terrible when the title of your game is centered (assuming you are letting the game write out your game's title name). (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Default Options Settings: Players will almost always turn on Always Dash, Command Remember, and lower the volume settings for your game. Do it for them and reduce the amount of jump scares players get when they turn on your game for the first time ever and the music blows out their eardrums because it is at 100% volume. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Encounter Rate Minimum: Players are now given a minimum number of steps before a random encounter battle. The biggest complaint I've ever seen across so many RPG Maker games is the awful random encounter rate thanks to RPG Maker's horrible formula for it. This will fix the problem by putting in a calculation for a minimum number of steps instead of just a 1 to X value. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Escaping battles will always work. Not every player wants to deal with your game's battle system because of reasons. So if they want to escape a battle, let them escape the battle at a 100% success rate. There is no reason to punish a player because they find a facet of your game unenjoyable to play. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Hit Rate Stacking: stacks skill accuracy in favor of the player. If the player uses a non-attack physical skill, the accuracy will ignore the actor hit percentage value because it's left by default at 95%, which happens way too often due to the unbalanced accuracy calculation of RPG Maker MV. Skills will use the success rates dictated inside of the database and no other outside factors. Only regular attacks will still be affected by hit rates. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Leveling a character will fully recover their HP and MP. So many RPG's do this and whenever it happens, players feel great about it. What doesn't feel great is leveling up and seeing that you have more HP and MP to heal back because the game you're playing doesn't have such a system. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
Proper Error Display: Not all games are perfect. If your players discover a game crash, they will get a completely unhelpful one line message without this plugin. With this plugin and this option turned on, players can get you a detailed bug report on the exact parts of the code that need fixing. (You can change this in the plugin parameters)
You can turn off these features from the plugin parameters if you want.
