This is my Turn-Based System "Framework" - or rather, the "Manager". The Turn-Based genre is very broad and tough to narrow down. You could go for a system like Pokemon, Final Fantasy, or many others. I didn't want to pin down on one single one, so I built this, which will ideally help newer developers develop turn-based games.

Now, onto the best part. The thing that makes this a Framework is add-ons. I have one made that demonstrates how to make a simple Pokemon-esque system with this manager.

I will be working on new add-ons, but I wholeheartedly encourage any who want to to make their own add-ons and submit them to me (either via the hub forums or my email, cka12895[at]gmail.com)!

I also encourage feedback on this manager. Do you have ideas on what else could be added to the manager to help make turn-based games that wouldn't be too system-specific? Please suggest it!

I'm not quite sure I understand your question. This system allows you to be pretty flexible with how your battlegrounds are set up.

As a side note, my current project is going to have a turn based system in it, so I may revisit and revamp this system. I'll likely make a new hub though, so I don't break any games that people may be working on with this system.

Is it possible to add an action-platformer-based map engine to it, so that enemies and players are sent to a turn-based battleground?

Did a new update. Not very much changed, mainly a few small optimizations and glitch fixes.

Sorry about the update spams, I just had a few things I didn't catch. This last one was an issue with the selections not deleting properly when just doing del battle_hud.
