So I can't find an open source repo of this software. That would be useful for anyone wishing to make a derived piece of software. I'd recommend a CDDL or BSD license. The GPL is yucky.

Pokemon Essentials, of course. RPG Maker isn't even free.

Every single line of code that makes up Essentials is readily accessible in the Script Editor (F11). Some of the original scripts that come from RMXP are mixed in there too (I don't know exactly which ones), and I don't know about the legality of copying those.

I don't know anything about licensing, and I don't know what kind of license the Essentials scripts could use. At the moment we're just going on the "please give credit if used/derived from" idea.
