1. Purple Themed Bubble Bath Background + Overlay:

Background

You’ll need to upload this into the backgrounds section. Name it INT. FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH

Credit: this background belongs to @FlowerGriefer so if you use remember to give credit to her. :purple_heart:

Overlay

The name of this overlay is FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH OL :bathtub: :sparkling_heart: :sparkles:

Note that this overlay needs to go at a higher layer than the characters (the bubbles would appear in front of their faces).

Credit: this overlay belong to @FlowerGriefer so if you use remember to give credit to her.

Ok, just to re-iterate, I named the background INT. FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH and the overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH OL and I have two characters-STAR (a girl) and HEART (a boy) in these scenes (sometimes just the girl, STAR)

NOW, TIME FOR THE SCENES:

Scene with STAR standing in the bath alone:

Code:

INT. FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH with FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH OL at layer 2

@zoom reset

@STAR stands screen center AND STAR faces right

@STAR moves to layer 1

STAR (talk_shrug)
I love bubbles.

Picture for Code:

Of course in this scene, she’s a little too high, so you’ll need to place her lower. I’ll show you how to do that in the next scene.

And yeah, I know it’s weird to take a bath with clothes on, but whatever ^^

Scene with STAR in the bath using spot placement:

Code for it:

INT. FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH with FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH OL at layer 2

@zoom reset

@STAR spot 1.280 159 -59 AND STAR faces right

@STAR moves to layer 1

STAR (talk_shrug)
I love bubbles.

Picture for this code:

She’s lower which is great, but it would be even better if we zoomed in. Next scene will show that ^^

Scene with STAR in the bath, zoomed in:

Code for it:

INT. FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH with FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLE BUBBLE BATH OL at layer 2

@STAR spot 1.280 159 -59 AND STAR faces right

@STAR moves to layer 1

STAR (talk_shrug)

Picture for Code:

And now for the last scene on having two people in a bath together (I already did so many scenes-well, it feels like so many) XD

Scene for two people in a bath:

Code for it:

@STAR spot 1.280 210 -52 AND STAR faces left AND HEART spot 1.280 113 -36 AND HEART faces right

@STAR moves to layer 2 AND HEART moves to layer 1

@HEART starts yawn_bored

Whew, that took some time, boy am I sweating! Does anyone else sweat when they code or is it just me? Lol… :lol: :lollipop:
Hope this helps you, and STAR really was the star of the show, wasn’t she? I’m sorry I just had to… :star: P.S Might have been a little repetitive haha but that’s alright , good luck on your story :smiling_imp: :metal2: :blob_hearts:

Thanks, xoxo :black_heart: :sparkling_heart:

What if you want the character to look like they are coming up from underneath the water (H2O)? Well, here’s a mini tutorial on how to! :icecream:

To begin, you can place your character below using this line of code:

@CHAR spot % X Y (these are symbols which HAVE to be replaced with numbers)

And then you can write:

@CHAR walks to spot % X Y in S AND CHAR does it while non_walking_animation

  • All on one line, % X Y, S have to be replaced with numbers. non_walking_animation can be replaced with a random, existing animation like idle (or of your choosing). You’d also replace CHAR’s script name to yours.

Legend:

  • % is the height/size of the char
  • X is left to right or right to left (higher numbers on the right and lower numbers on the left, like a graph)
  • Y is up-down or down-up (lower numbers at the bottom and higher numbers at the top, like a graph)
  • S is a number, in seconds (time can’t go backwards)

Change only the Y value (the third number in spot directing since that controls the CHAR vertically, whether they go up or down) :blob_hearts:
