This is a small effect plugin that is heavily influenced by the blue magic systems in final fantasies 8 and 9, where your heroes learned new abilities by eating the enemies, rather than being hit by those skills like in other iterations.

This plugin allows a dev to tag specific skills as 'consume' skills. When an enemy is defeated by a skill with this tag, the actor will learn a skill from it (as noted from tags on the enemy).

In version 1.02 I have made it so that killing the enemy with the skill is optional, and you can now have a chance of failing to learn a skill from an enemy.

This is a fairly simple plugin, and has few configurable properties. The text shown in the battle log for when a skill is learned, already known, or when an enemy has no skill to learn is configurable.

Notetags:

<Consume Skill>

  • Placed on skills only
  • When an enemy is defeated by a skill with this tag, their blue magic skill is learned by the actor who dealt the finishing blow.

<Consumed Skill: x y%>

  • Placed on enemies only
  • When the enemy is killed by a consume skill, this is the skill id that is learned by the actor who dealt the finishing blow.
  • If the y% value is not included in the tag, this will always succeed, otherwise a random number check is performed against y% to determine if a skill could be learned.

One of three configurable messages is shown in the battle log when an enemy is defeated by a consume skill:

  • A new skill is learned by the actor
  • The actor already know the skill from this enemy
  • The enemy had no skill to learn in this way

In all of these messages, several escape characters can be used to customize the message:

  • %u is a stand-in for the user
  • %t is a stand-in for the enemy
  • %s is a stand-in for the skill name
