I’m developing Virtual Grid Combat Engine (VGCE), a plugin for RPG Maker MV. Ideally the party and enemies are placed in grids to allow more strategic combat by enabling attacks such as sweeping a row or blasting a column of enemies. The party in 2×2 grid at the bottom. Enemies are placed in grids ideally 3×3 for difficulty balance. More grids mean more enemies may appear at once if so desired, but may raise the game’s difficulty.
So far, I have placed the party members in a grid, as shown below.
The code for inserting mana symbols is [ mana]cost[/mana]. Put the entire cost inside. Hybrid halves and Phyrexian mana should be separated by a slash ‘/’, in any order. Use 2 for monocolor hybrid and P for Phyrexian. Put a semicolon between the numbers if there are two consecutively, but want them to show up separately.
These are the valid letters, numbers, and hybrids that can be used within the mana tags:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
b c e g h i p q r s t u w x y z
w/u u/w u/b b/u b/r r/b r/g g/r w/b b/w u/r r/u b/g g/b r/w w/r g/u u/g
2/w w/2 2/u u/2 2/b b/2 2/r r/2 2/g g/2
p/w w/p p/u u/p p/b b/p p/r r/p p/g g/p
The coding for making card links and deck lists is completed. This page will teach you how to use them in your posts. Besides typing the shortcodes, you can also use the corresponding buttons on the toolbar when creating or editing your post.
Since this is a blog, I shall blog about the process of the creation of a WordPress plugin that provides basic utilities for Magic: the Gathering blogs (such as the one you’re reading now). This plugin I shall dub “MTG Utilities”. There are a few MTG plugins out there and together they seem to work fine. But I want a single plugin that provides what I need and it should be somewhat customizable and flexible. The main code will be ported from my mod I made for Simple Machines forums.
