Hey, guys!
I'm not sure if there's already a simple plugin for this or even a manual way to do in-game but, I'm basically looking for just a small text pop-up option? A way to make it so when a character is near a door, a chest, any item, there's a text that just says "Check" or "open" while in front of it. Text that does not interfere but allows the player to see that they are able to press a button to do something. Something very similar to the Tales of series or Dragon Quest, basically any other RPG Series.
I have access to VisuStella's Gab Window for MZ and some other plugins but I'm not sure if any other popular ones would be used for a feature this small? I don't want an interrupting text window but, I'm just wondering what are some of the ways (plug-ins included) that could help me attain this feature?

Long story short: basically just an action button window...you get close to an event and there's a pop-up, text, etc. that reminds you can press a button and activate. Something very simple and common.

Thank you!

This might be what you want. It does icons, but icons can have words in them:

1st iteration on castle interior in Tiled.
I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
Gamedev for relaxing? yes or no?
