This plugin requires the Character Creator plugin!

This plugin allows Actors to have their sprites and images dynamically
change based on the Class, Weapon, or Armors that the Actor has equipped.

========================================================================
Class, Weapon, and Armor notetags
========================================================================

If you wish for a specific character creator piece to be used on an Actor
when they have a Class, Weapon, or Armor equipped, use the following
notetag in the Class’s, Weapon’s, or Armor’s notebox:

<Force [section] Piece: [file-name]>

For example, if you wished to use the “Clothing (5)” file from the
“Clothing” section, you would use the following notetag:

<Force Clothing Piece: Clothing (5)>

========================================================================
Forcing a Specific Hue
========================================================================

You can also set a specific hue to be used with the piece:

<Force [section] Piece: [file-name], [hue]>

For example:

<Force Clothing Piece: Clothing (5), 200>

    Hey There! Wonderful plugin but I’m having a weird issue, I’m getting an error that goes TypeError – “Cannot read property ‘_dc_pieces ‘ of undefined”. I’ve made sure to have everything updated, all images properly sorted, and the note tags set correctly yet I am still having this issue, and have no clue of how to continue. The notetags work correctly when set on classes, but don’t work when added onto weapons or armors. I would appreciate any help please.

        Got this error after using the Character Creator, and just trying to do the Dynamic Actors armor swap still didn’t change the armor from the equipping of items.

          Did you download the plugin again?
          I don’t see how you could possibly get this error with the way the code is set up now.

    Will this plugin require that the user makes a custom character? Will this only work with generator characters, or will like default Harold be able to change clothes by hiding his old clothes underneath?

    Hello after 2 weeks work in Visual Equipment! I finally give up, I don’t have the knowledge to repair that plugin alone. So now I’m adapting SumRndmDde Character Creator + Dynamic Actors and I can make this work for my game. The plugin won’t reed notetag from the Actors, so I made a different Class for every Actor :D. But now I’m stuck.
    I need a way to activate the actors composite graphics whiteout let the player go throw character creator.
