What does it do?
Allows regions to sink players and events in. If player sinks in completely – game over screen or common event can be executed.


How to use?
Set up tags Map Note.
Full setup looks like this:
<quicksand: [iD]>
SinkSpeed: [FLOAT]
SlowDown: [FLOAT]
MaxSlowDown: [FLOAT]
MaxSink: [INT]
SinkReached: [Common Event ID/0/-1]
Dash: [true/false]
CutOff: [true/false]
What each of those do:
<quicksand: [iD]> – start of region data, [iD] is for which region will it apply
</quicksand> – end of region data
SinkSpeed: [FLOAT] – How fast characters sink in
SlowDown: [FLOAT] – How slower characters move per sink in
MaxSlowDown: [FLOAT] – Slowest characters can move E.g. 0.5
MaxSink: [INT] – Lowest possible sinking point (E.g. 30)
SinkReached: [Common Event ID/0/-1] – What happens after player sinks in. 0 – nothing, -1 – Game Over, >0 calls Common Event of that ID.
Dash: [true/false] – Is player allowed to Dash while in this region
CutOff: [true/false] – Cut off part of sprite depending on sink in?
Is it possible to set multiple regions on same map? Yes.
Can I make events unsinkable? Yes.
Just add <Unsinkable> to Event’s note field.

  1. Hi Mr Trivel,

    I’m slowly making my way through creating what I hope will be a commercial game, which will probably make absolutely no sales, but I’m still giving it a go anyway.

    I would like to use your plugin in my game. I would give full credits in the game credits section.

    Please let me know if it would be ok.

    I’m not going to finish the game for the next 12 months so there is no major hurry in responding.

    Thanks in advance
