Battle End & Loot Dialogues

The battle end settings define how battle gains are displayed and distributed at the end of a battle.

The battle end settings can be found in Battles > Battle End.

Base Settings #

The base settings define how Experience and Normal status value rewards are distributed and the default battle gains collection.

Experience Rewards #

Define how Experience type status value rewards will be distributed among the player group.

Optionally, experience can be only given to the combatant who killed the enemy. Otherwise, all battle group members or the whole player group (i.e. including combatants that didn’t participate in battle) can receive experience.

The experience can either be split by the number of combatants or be given to each combatant without splitting.

E.g.: a battle rewards the player with 100 experience.

Splitting it among 4 members would give 25 to each combatant.

Not splitting it gives each combatant 100 experience.

Dead combatants (e.g. killed during the battle) can optionally also receive experience.

Normal Status Value Rewards #

Define how Normal type status value rewards will be distributed among the player group.

Normal rewards can be given to the battle group or whole player group. Like experience rewards, normal rewards can also be split by the number of combatants and optionally given to dead combatants.

Battle Gains Collection #

Select if battle gains (loot, experience) are collected immediately after an enemy has been defeated or at the end of the battle.

Most of the settings are only available when collecting immediately – otherwise this setup is made in the Collect Battle Gains node used to collect the battle gains.

When collecting immediately, items and currency can also be dropped into the game world.

Battle systems can override the default battle gains collection.

Item Box #

When collecting immediately, loot (items, equipment, currencies, etc.) can optionally be stored in an item box instead of the player’s inventory.

The item box is defined by a Box ID, which can be used by Item Collector components in Box to access the item box.

Loot Dialogues #

Loot dialogues are used to display the battle gains the player receives – i.e. loot (items, equipment, currencies, etc.), Experience and Normal type status value rewards as well as combatant and level up information.

You can set up different loot dialogues for different battle outcomes:

  • victory
  • escape
  • defeat
  • leave arena (when enabled by the used battle system, used when the moving a defined distance away from the battle)
  • immediate collection

You can create custom loot dialogue implementations by deriving from the BaseLootDialogueSettings class.

Loot dialogues can be displayed when using a Collect Battle Gains node in schematics, the battle gains are collected immediately (when an enemy was killed) or when leaving Real Time Area Battles (enabled in the real time battle system’s setup).

Simple #

Displays a series of dialogues showing the battle’s loot and player combatant changes and level ups.

Loot Dialogue Settings #

Define which dialogues will be displayed.

Battle Gain Notification #

Shows a dialogue containing the battle gains (loot, status value rewards).

The content is added via text codes, each text code is replaced by a it’s own defined text. The individual texts (e.g. for currencies, items and experience) also use text codes to add their own content (e.g. adding the name and quantity of the currency or item).

Combatant Gain Notification #

Shows a dialogue for each combatant containing the Experience and Normal status value rewards the combatant received.

The content is added via text codes, each text code is replaced by a it’s own defined text. The individual texts (e.g. experience/normal status value rewards) also use text codes to add their own content (e.g. adding the name and value of the status value). You can optionally use a HUD as a template to add more information to the dialogue.

The combatant gains can optionally be combined with the level up notification to a single dialogue.

Level Up Notification #

Shows a dialogue for each combatant that has a level up containing the level up information.

The information is defined by the level up texts setting (see below).

Layout Screen #

Displays the battle’s loot in individual UI boxes and player combatant changes/level ups all at the same time using UI layouts to arrange them.

Learn more about UI layouts in the Makinom documentation.

Loot Dialogue Settings #

Define which dialogues will be displayed.

Outcome Notification #

Displays a battle outcome message alongside the loot and combatant gains. Can also include UI backgrounds.

E.g. use this to show a victory message or add a background to the overall loot dialogue.

Loot Notification #

Define if and how loot (items, currencies, etc.) will be displayed.

A dialogue is displayed for each individual loot. You can optionally define a separate setup for currencies.

Add content information about the loot using text codes (e.g. <name> for the loot’s name) and add a HUD as a template to add additional content information (e.g. shortcut UI, see this documentation for details).

The individual loot dialogues are arranged on screen using UI layouts.

Combatant Notification #

Shows a dialogue for each combatant containing the Experience and Normal status value rewards the combatant received.

The content is added via text codes, each text code is replaced by a it’s own defined text. The individual texts (e.g. experience/normal status value rewards) also use text codes to add their own content (e.g. adding the name and value of the status value). You can optionally use a HUD as a template to add more information to the dialogue.

The combatant gains can optionally be combined with the level up notification to a single dialogue.

Custom Loot Notification #

Define if and how custom loot will be displayed. The dialogue setup is the same as for other loot (Loot Notification settings).

Custom loot can be displayed based on variable conditions and have quantity stored in global int variables. You can define content information and portraits for the custom loot.

The custom loot has to be added in the custom loot notification settings. Please note that custom loot is only displayed and doesn’t change anything.

Level Up Notification #

Shows a dialogue for each combatant that has a level up containing the level up information.

The information is defined by the level up texts setting (see below).

Level Up Texts #

Define the content that’ll be displayed by level up dialogues. Multiple level ups can optionally be combined to a single dialogue.

Total Level Up Content #

The level up text that’ll be displayed for a level up.

Use text codes to add the individual parts (level up, status value, ability learn, etc.) to the text.

You can use a HUD as a template to add additional information to the dialogue.

Level Up Text #

Use text codes to add content information about the combatant and the new level.

Class Level Up Text #

Group Ability Learn Text #

Use text codes to add content information about the combatant and ability. Uses the combatant who has the ability learn setup (e.g. from ability development).
