RPGMaker: Map of Yanfly Plugin Dependencies

As part of learning RPGMaker MV, I have watched many YouTube videos to see how people do things. Driftwood Gaming is one of my go-to posters on this. Drifty explains well what he is doing and why, and presents many useful tricks that come from working with the tool, things that likely would not be included in a manual (if RPGMaker MV had a manual… I haven’t found an official one yet).

One of the major tools in Drifty’s arsenal, and in fact how I found him, are the Yanfly plugins. Yanfly built a large (more than a hundred plugins) library of useful tools and utilities expanding on the base capabilities of RPGMaker MV.

Sadly, Yanfly has retired from making RPGMaker plugins. The information below is, I believe, complete and current up to that point.

Some plugins build on others, and there is no explicit mechanism for resolving this in RPGMaker MV (i.e. you can’t mark Plugin B and depending on Plugin A, and RPGMaker MV will load them in the correct order). As with old school C compilers, you have to manually specify load order to make sure the libraries are loaded in the correct order.

The requirements are documented, but hard to follow. So, me being me, I drew a graph.

(Click image above for the full-size image.)

… and I could have saved myself typing a legend, since there one right there in the diagram that summarizes better than I did in text.

Happy RPG Making!
