Adding Content

Want to add some content to MAS? Here's a list of important .RPY files the game uses.

  • script-ch30.rpy: Main flow for MAS. This is where idle happens.
  • script-topics.rpy: All random and pool topics used by Monika are written here. You can add your own dialogue by checking the information below!
  • script-greetings.rpy: Add lines for Monika to greet you when loading the game.
  • script-farewells.rpy: Add lines for Monika to say to you when closing the game.
  • script-moods.rpy: Tell Monika that you're in a mood.
  • script-stories.rpy: Add stories for Monika to tell you.
  • script-compliments.rpy: Add compliments you can say to Monika.
  • script-apologies.rpy: Add things to apologize for.

If you wish to add more dialogue to the space room, navigate to script-topics.rpy and use this template.

Example new dialogue code block:

init 5 python:
            eventlabel="monika_example", # event label (MUST BE UNIQUE)
            category=["example", "topic"], # list of categories this topic belongs in (These are automatically capitalized)
            prompt="Example Topic", # button text
            random=True, # True if this topic should appear randomly
            pool=True # True if this topic should appear in "Ask a Question"

label monika_example:
    m 1a "This is an example topic."
    m 3d "I feel like this doesn't actually belong here..."
    m 2e "Why would somebody just add the example template directly into the mod?"
    m 5r "They really shouldn't be allowed to contribute to this repository anymore."

For full explanations and details on all the possible keywords for Event, check the documentation for Event located in definitions.rpy

For things more complicated than simple dialogue, consult the Ren'Py documentation available online.
