This plugin allows developers to create skills that summon Actors into the
player’s party using various parameters.

=======================================================================
Setting up Summoning Skill
=======================================================================

In order to make a Skill become a Summon Skill, use the following notetag:

<Summon>
Actor ID: x
<End Summon>

Simply set “x” to the Actor ID you wish to be summoned.

=======================================================================
Summoning Properties
=======================================================================

Various properties can be added to the Summoning Skills. They can be
customized within the Summon notetags:

<Summon>
Actor ID: 2
Level: 10
Turns: 2
<End Summon>

Here is a list of all the properties available:

Level

Determines the level of the summoned Actor. This can be a number or
JavaScript code that uses the “actor” variable to reference the user.

Turns

Determines the number of turns the summon will last. Set to -1 to make
the summon last until the end of the battle or death.

Animation

Determines the animation used for when the summon is summoned.

Exit Animation

Determines the exit animation used for when the summon leaves.

X

Determines the X position of the summon. Can use JavaScript code.
If using JavaScript code, “index” refers to the summon’s index within the
party and “master” refers to the sprite of the summoner.*

Y

Determines the Y position of the summon. Can use JavaScript code.
If using JavaScript code, “index” refers to the summon’s index within the
party and “master” refers to the sprite of the summoner.

=======================================================================
Position Examples
=======================================================================

If one wants to position the summoned Actor relative to the summoner,
the following code could be used:

<Summon>
Actor ID: 2
X: master._mainX – 120
Y: master._mainY
<End Summon>

This would position the summon 120 pixels to the left of the summoner.

    Hello,
    this is awesome, exactly what I need for my summoner class. Just one question, is it possible to limit the amount of summons? Say, depending on the level? If the player is level 1-9, they can summon one actor, if they are 10-19, they can summon 2 and so on?

    Is there a way you can dismiss a summon whenever you want, so you switch out various summons with ease rather than them dying or having a few turns on the field?

          There’s no error in my project when using Yanfly’s Animated SV Enemies.
          I had the error at one of SRD plugins… Between BattleGUICore and BattleStatusCustomizer(Part 1 & Part 2), I don’t remember ^^”

      I encountered an error on line 2773 of YEP_X_AnimatedSVEnemies.js.

      it’s just some bad (old es3 style) null checking. if you swap line 2 below for that line it will work just fine… now if its null/undefined/””/0 it will skip the this section.

      “`
      Sprite_Animation.prototype.updateSvePosition = function() {
      if (this._target.parent._battler && this._target.parent._battler.isEnemy() && typeof this._target.parent._mainSprite != ‘undefined’){
      if (this._animation.position !== 3) {
      if (this._animation.position === 0) {
      this.y += this._target.parent._mainSprite.height – this._target.parent.texture.height;
      } else if (this._animation.position === 1) {
      this.y += (this._target.parent._mainSprite.height – this._target.parent.texture.height) / 2;
      }
      }
      }
      };
      “`

      in the case of our summons plugin, this value is null rather than undefined.

      I simply swapped `if(typeof this._target.parent._battler != ‘undefined’ …` for `if(this._target.parent._battler …`

        Thanks for providing this. However, It seems like when using this code, other functionality of the Animated SV Enemies YanFly plugin becomes disabled. For instance, making enemy actors “breathe” does not work, and calling side view battlers no longer works either. Were you able to find a fix for these other issues? I appreciate you providing the above fix, but I wanted to check if you were able to get these other issues fixed as well, or how you handled them.

    Whenever i use this with your BattleStatusCustomizer the summoned actor is outside the screen and sometimes it covers the skills/items menù

      It also make the game summoned actor literaly broke, as it isn’t animated anymore, it doesn’t show the skills, and also it makes the game crash when the summoned actor turn comes

    look … if i have only one player in the group, summon, when used, involves the amount of space that i have free.
    example: if there is room for 3 more players. it involves 3 summon
    of the same involved.
    how to solve this?
    I want to involve just one.

      Did you ever find out the solution to this? I have the same problem as well. I had to update my project files and the plugin still works perfectly with the exception that it’s summoning in 3 of each thing I summon. If I summon a dog, I get 3 dogs all in the same location.

      If I set maximum summons to 1 then I only get 1 dog. So it’s definitely just executing something 3 times for some reason. I wonder if there’s a way to make a summoned unit unique, so that there can only be 1 of that summon on the battlefield at a time. That’d be an easy fix I think.

      It was a plugin conflict with SRD Timed Attack Core. I turned off the timed attacks and it summons the right amount.

    Hello everyone.

    Can anyone, if possible at all, tell me how to set the summonning’s level to the summonner’s one? (I mean, if Harold at lvl 60 summons SummoningTest_01, what do I have to do to set SummonningTest_01’s level to Harold’s by default)

    Hello! Is it possible to use this plugin in some way so that the summon’s skills affect the summoner’s MP/HP/TP rather than it’s own? Or would I have to use different plugins in conjunction with this one?

    Hello !
    I have a little problem with the plugin, in fact, I filled the notetag of the skill with the right terms like the video (I made a copy and pasted of the plugin help)
    Everything works, the invocation appears well on the battle screen, but the problem is that it does not appear in the list of characters playable in battle, impossible to control it, it does not appear in the list.
    And even if you add automatic combat in the character, it never attacks, it just appears on the screen but you can’t control it, or move it by itself…
    I don’t get any plugin conflict error message…
    Anyone have an idea ?
    Thanks in advance !

    why when you cast your summon as the same lv of your caster(Level: actor.level) its hp/mp is the default lv1??

    does anyone know how to cast the summon with its HP/MP full??

    Reply

      Nevermind, this plugin just do its job if you have no intent on leveling your summon and keep it at lv1 cause its stats(HP, ATK, etc) will be at that level even if you change the lv you want it to have when summoned…

      What can also be done is make various actors to represent one character with different stats each and when you feel like your summon is too weak in a part of your game and want to power it up you just change the summoning skill and actor ID for a stronger version of itself

      A prefereable plugin for a levelable summon than this one is Seki_Summon by Sekunri
