I'm going to revive an old project of mine, and I'd like to know which version of RPG Maker would be best to use, based on what types of scripts are already available.
The main thing I want is a journal/quest log that already does, or can be adapted to, advance time in the game world. Events will or will not happen based on what the player has done before triggering the time advancement (the advancements would be tied to quests in the main storyline).
I also want an attribute system similar to Fallout, in that the stats are mostly unchanging, and possibly have skills that rise with use. I can deal with the standard attributes in the system, but if it's easy enough to add a few more that'll also work for monsters, I'd like some expansion. I've done all this before, sloppily, but right now I'm just trying to figure out which version will handle these better, and which one has more stuff put out by the awesome community that'll help me.
