Speaking of FE, there is a village visit event as a characteristic element.
Because player have to visit the village earlier than thieves, we rush the player and invite mistakes.
In addition, we will add new ways of playing, such as going ahead with the unit where the sky can fly, strengthening the distribution of military force to protect the village.
It is common for the difficulty of the map to change only by factors such as whether there is a village or not, and whether thieves are in the initial position.
However, making a village visit event is very difficult.
You can not make it unless you set various things.
I think that it is one of the beginner's frustration points.
I will explain as easily as possible here.
Without a village, We can not visit the village.
Let's start by adding a village to the map of prologue.
It is installed with FEbuilderGBA's built-in Map Editor, but since FEBuilder supports map data in mar / map / tmx format, you can create it with the dedicated Map Editor software.
That is because we have not made village events yet. We have added the tiles to show that it is a village, but events will let us determine what happens when certain conditions are met. In this case, when a unit presses Visit, it should show the Visit dialogue.
Next, We will make village events.
Close the second window and return to the main screen of FEBuilderGBA.
Exit the emulator and let's return to FEBuilderGBA.
In FEBuilderGBA, please go back to the window of the main menu which is the first screen.
FEBuilderGBA opens many windows, but pressing the PAUSE / BREAK key is convenient to return to the main menu with a single touch.
MEMO: Village Visit / Village Destruction uses two map objects.
This time I alloced extra.
Capacity is a loss of several 10 bytes, but priority is given to easiness of understanding.
MEMO: If the number (NumUpDown) and the pull-down do not match, the number takes precedence.
This is the rule of FEBuilderGBA general.
Be sure to confirm that the number (NumUpDown) item is the desired number.
|Generation type||6||06=Visit Village|
|Coordinate||X=6||Coordinate of Village Center|
|Event type||20||20=Village Center|
If you do not set the flag condition, it will be put in the village again and again.
In the FE GBA Trilogy, flags after 0x9 are often used for events such as village visits.
In the map, you can use flags up to 0x28 as you like.
Some flags have special meanings depending on the flags.
For details, see the item “フラグ”.
For the event, enter the Event address to execute.
For this time, enter 1 for dummy.
Actually, the Village Center is irrelevant to the village visit.
It is used indirectly for the village destruction event.
If you do not designate the Village Center, it will behave strangely as not being ruined by the village destruction event.
Conversely, it is unnecessary in the map where thieves do not cause village destruction events.
However, in the FE GBA Trilogy, it is always set, so it follows it.
In that case, putting 1 as a dummy also follows the setting in FE GBA Trilogy.
For coordinates, enter the coordinates of the Village Center.
Since it is an event of Village Center, I designate Village Center.
If you mistake the coordinates, the behavior at the village destruction event will go wrong.
Type, set the type of event.
In FE 8, Village Center event is number 20.(The number changes according to the FE series.)
|Generation type||6||06=Visit Village|
|Flag condition||9||Specify the same flag as the Village Center.|
|Event||0||I will set it later|
|Coordinate||X=6||Coordinate of village entrance|
For coordinates, please specify the coordinates of the village entrance.
Type, Please specify 10=Home.
By the way, even if you double-click the command you want to select, it will have the same behavior as clicking on the “Select Command” button.
|Background||2||It is an image that the houses of the village are lining up.|
|TEXT||92A||String of the visit event in Chapter 2.|
(These are those of FE8J. It is different in FE8U.)
|character||FFFF||the unit that I visited the village|
The event worked correctly, but the village does not become closed village.
However, since we set the flag condition: 9, nothing happens even if we go to the village again.
Although there is no harm, it is not good-looking so let's be Closed village.
Why is not it a closed village?
That's because we have not set Tile Changes.
Next let's set Tile Changes.
The village event was completed perfect so far.
However, as it is a big deal, let's create a village destruction event by thieves.
To make a village destruction event, we have to make Ruins with Tile Changes.
Well, just like before, press the “Resize” button to adjust the position.
In “Position”, select “X = 5, Y = 2”.
This is the coordinates of the upper left of the village.
The size of Ruins is 3 * 3, but now it is 1 * 1 size, so increase “size”.
In “Size”, select “R=2 B=2”.
Increase 2 squares in the right and down direction.
After entering the number, please push the “Change” button.
With this, Ruins' Tile Changes has been completed.
However, there are no thief in prologue.
So add a thief to the prologue's enemy.
Once you return to the main menu.
Double click on an enemy unit, you can go to the setting screen of that unit group.
|Secondary AI||5||05=Attack village and treasure, then move to escape point Thief|
|Pre-arrangement coordinates||X=8 Y=4||Place it near the village|
|Post-placement coordinates||0||It is not set this time|
The most important thing is secondary AI.
Please set it correctly.
However, as space is secured, it means that wasted space has been secured.
Even if it says waste, there are not 100 bytes.
If it is not set correctly, it will not be Ruins.
If you are not making Ruins with Tile Changes.
When the coordinates of Tile Changes are misaligned.
When Village Center is not specified with Map Object of Event Condition.
If the coordinates are incorrect, it will not work properly.
This is because Escape Point is not set.
He do not know where him should leave, and there are no villages to destroy any more, so he do not know what to do and he is standing.
Next, let's create Escape Point and leave the thieves.
(Escape Point does not share with enemies and ally.The default is the enemy's only Escape Point.
The ally Escape Point is switched with pulldown on the upper side.)
|Escape coordinates||X=14 , Y=8||Forest on the right side of the map|
|Extinguishing method||1||01=2 steps right|
That concludes the explanation of village visit, village destruction, and Escape Event.
Setting is troublesome, but as you can make it, you can create a more interesting map.
Please do your best trying to make it.
In addition to Closed village, Ruins, Tile Changes is used for Empty Chest, Door, Cracked Walls, and so on.
It is also possible to generate specific Tile Changes with event script.
Please do various things, play.
