A downloadable template
Do you struggle to event complex systems for your RPG Maker MZ games?
Do you wish that you could just copy and paste a system into your game, and then customize it yourself?
Eventing in RPG Maker MZ can be difficult for a lot of beginners, and sometimes even veteran RMers struggle to visualize solutions to their problems.
But now you can just copy and paste from a template, with Cookie Cutter MZ! Simply open the template project and copy over the relevant files, or you can even use the project as a base to start your own game!
It's as easy as reading the instructions below which will tell you what files you will need to copy into your own game, and then hitting play!
COOKIE CUTTER MZ - CALENDAR SYSTEM
This Calendar System can be used to tie into the existing Cookie Cutter MZ - Day/Night System template, or it can be intergrated into your own time system. Progressing to the next day is as easy as changing a variable!
This system will display four different seasons, each with 28 days. The player can hover over each day to view information about it, such as events. This works with both keyboard and mouse!
