What do the layers mean?


#1

example: @CHARACTER walks to spot X in zone 2 at layer 2
– something like that. ^^ what does the layer mean?


#2

(that code is incorrect, I think you mean @CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer #)

Anyways, layers are what places characters and overlays in front or behind one another. The higher the layer number, the more in front they will be. So a character at layer 5 will be in front of a character at layer 3.

To add layers, you can use the code I mentioned above or this code: @CHARACTER moves to layer #
Layer numbers are infinite, so you can have a character/overlay at layer 76 or at layer -55

#10

an overlay can be behind a character IF you layer it


#11

Here are the 2 ways to layer overlays. You just need to make sure the overlay layer is lower than the character layer if you want the overlay to be behind the character.
