02 Status Development

Table of Contents

In this tutorial we’ll set up the status development for our player and enemy combatants.

We’ll set up different archetypes in player and enemy variants:

  • Tank
  • Physical DPS (damage dealer)
  • Fast Physical DPS
  • Magical DPS
  • Weaponless DPS (player only)
  • Supporter (enemy only)
  • Mini Boss (enemy only)
  • Boss (enemy only)

The level range will be 1 to 50 (i.e. level 50 is the maximum) and we’ll use Percent Points for most of our status value distribution. Learn more about status development in this documentation.

Navigate to Status > Status Development, you’ll notice a Default setup without much setup – we’ll start by editing this one.

0: Tank #

A tank focuses on taking damage – i.e. high health and defence.

Development Settings #

  • Name
    Set to Tank.

Level Range #

The Level Range defines the minimum and maximum level of the status development, and by this the maximum level a combatant using it can reach. As mentioned above, our level range should be 1 to 50.

Click on the Edit Level Range button to change them.

  • Minimum Value
    Set to 1.
  • Maximum Value
    Set to 50.

Click on Ok to accept the changes.

Percent Points #

According to our status system planning (see the introduction), the development maximum for any none HP/MP value should be a value of 100. To make things easy, we’ll use 100 as the percent points at level 50, allowing us to just define the different status values with their maximum at the end.

Percent points are a great tool to quickly change status value distributions and test things out – they might not work for every status system, though. Remember, you can always switch to other status value definitions, e.g. using a curve to have exact control.

  • Use Curve
    Enable this setting.
    We’ll define the percent points using a status value curve dialogue.

Click on Edit Curve to open the curve dialogue.

  • Start Value (Min. Level)
    Set to 15.
    This’ll give a status value using 100 percent 15 at level 1.
  • End Value (Max. Level)
    Set to 100.
    This’ll give a status value using 100 percent 100 at level 50.
  • Interpolation
    Select Linear.

Click on Generate Curve to create the percent point curve.

Click on Confirm to accept the curve.

Value Development #

Now it’s time for the actual status development setup – i.e. the Normal and Experience type status values. For MaxHPMaxMP and EXP we’ll also define curves, but for the rest (ATKDEF, etc.) we’ll use percent points for distribution.

Click on Set Default to add all Normal and Experience type status values with a base setup.

Search for the Weapon Damage status value (should be Status Value 3) and remove it. Weapon damage of our player combatants is handled by their equipment. We’ll add it later for weaponless and enemy developments.

Status Value 0 (MaxHP) #

  • Development Type
    Select Curve.

Click on Edit Curve to open the curve dialogue.

  • Start Value (Min. Level)
    Set to 200.
  • End Value (Max. Level)
    Set to 9999.
  • Interpolation
    Select Quadratic > Quadratic In.
    This gives us a slower increase at the early levels.

Click on Generate Curve to create the curve. Due to the high maximum value, you’ll not see a curve – enable Bar Highest Value Display to use the curve’s highest value as maximum for the display instead.

Click on Confirm to accept the curve.

Status Value 1 (MaxMP) #

  • Development Type
    Select Curve.

Click on Edit Curve to open the curve dialogue.

  • Start Value (Min. Level)
    Set to 5.
  • End Value (Max. Level)
    Set to 150.
  • Interpolation
    Select Linear.

Click on Generate Curve to create the curve.

Click on Confirm to accept the curve.

Status Value 2 (EXP) #

  • Development Type
    Select Curve.

Click on Edit Curve to open the curve dialogue.

  • Start Value (Min. Level)
    Set to 0.
  • End Value (Max. Level)
    Set to 10000.
  • Interpolation
    Select Quadratic > Quadratic In.

Click on Generate Curve to create the curve.

Click on Confirm to accept the curve.

Status Value 3 (ATK) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 70.

Status Value 4 (DEF) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 70.

Status Value 5 (MATK) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 15.

Status Value 6 (MDEF) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 40.

Status Value 7 (AGI) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 60.

Status Value 8 (DEX) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 65.

Status Value 9 (LUK) #

  • Development Type
    Select Percent.
  • Percent Value
    Set to 20.

Setting up the rest of the status developments is faster, as we just need to copy and adjust MaxHP and MaxMP curves and the percent values.

A physical DPS focuses on dealing physical damage – i.e. high attack.

Copy the previous development (Tank) and change the following settings.

Development Settings #
