Using Transfer Points
This event allows you to transfer your character from one map to another.
In order to demonstrate how this event works, we’ll use a map from my own personal project: “Quatre". “Quatre" (which means “four" in French) is essentially a game to learn the Japanese Kanji which I have been working on for a couple of years.
Let’s have a look at two maps.
This is the first map of the game which also happens to be the apartment of the main character (at the very bottom).
This is the second map of the game. This is the corridor right outside the main character’s apartment.
We’ll focus on the first map for now.
As you can see, I’ve already established the starting point and added quite a few events here and there.
At this point in time, I need to add a transfer point which will take me from the apartment to the corridor outside.
In order to do this, I will go at the bottom of my map, at the entrance of the apartment in “Event mode" (press F6).
As usual, press ENTER to add an Event in that square.
Before going any further, make sure to change the “trigger" to player touch as you want the transfer to happen as soon as the player occupies this square.
Once this is done, in the “Event Commands" window, click on tab #2 and then click on “transfer player".
A new window will show up:
Go ahead and click on the little box (red square). This will allow you to choose your destination.
Now all you have to do is select the map you would like to transfer to as well as the exact location on that map, like so:
Once you’re done, keep clicking OK until you’re back at the main mapping screen.
Before testing our new transfer point, let’s do something else.
Notice how the entrance is two squares large but at the moment only one square will transfer the player. There’s a really quick way to copy this event to the other square without having to repeat the previous process (which is time consuming).
Make sure the square on the right is selected (the one with the Event) and press CTRL+C (this will copy the event). Select the square next to it and press CTRL+V, this will paste the event like so:
Ok, now that the transfer points are set, all you have to do is to move your character over that tile and they will automatically go from one map to another. Try it out with your own game.
Congratulations, you’ve done your first transfer.
