The first Bonus Pack was pretty comprehensive, even including some things not used in the actual hold. However, there are still a few things that were excluded. For starters, some architects might want to use the RCS in their holds. Or perhaps they want some textless versions of the chapter overlays that they can put their own chapter names on. Or even something as simple as the "Do not feed Gentryii" scrolls.

I very much appreciate the idea of giving the "source code", so to speak, of the scroll animation, chapter overlays, and ESPECIALLY the RCS. Be it a free addendum to the pre-existing CEP or an entirely new thing, I'd LOVE to see this!

I'd be fine with this script code (distinct from the graphical assets) being shared for general use. It was fun to put together and explore the various ways to display things, and I'd love to see more of this in user-made holds.

I agree, the image overlay functionality in DRODscript is pretty fun to mess around with. There are a lot of neat things you can do with it. It had been used a few times in user made holds in nifty ways. The one that stands out the most to me is "Trek to 'No Air'". The hold is worth checking out for the great animations done with image overlay. Here's an example below from an LP that ThemsAllTook did:
EDIT: Can't seem to get the clip to embed. Here's a direct link

I'll also put in a shameless plug for my most recent hold, "...she'll carry a really big sword"

It starts out with an image overlay cut scene that turned out pretty okay I thought. I'm definitely looking to do more with these in the future.
