Author's Notes
This is a very basic plugin that I created to get used to plugin creation in RPG Maker MV. I am open to any suggestions or feature requests you may have if you find it useful.

@Lene Also, is this a completed plugin or do you have plans to continue it's development? If it is complete I will move it to plugin releases.

I was planning of adding to it, but I am not sure what features I should add to it. I was hoping for requests

Would it be possible to have this only appear the first time a map is entered?
As sort of an introduction to a new area.

Also how about the option to display for a specified amount of time?

These are good ideas, I will work on both. For the second thing, would it make more sense to let the description and map name be synced? Or would separate times be desired?

I would think synced would be better looking, just my opinion though.

I have updated the script to allow for setting the length of time the map name/description displays.

Version 1.2 is out, now allowing you to hide the description if a map has been visited by the player.
Plugin commands to mark a map as seen/unseen or clear the list of visited maps have also been added
