So in RPG maker MZ the maximum map size is 256 by 256 and I am looking for a plugin that would allow two large maps (192 by 256) to be connected to form a map of 384 by 256...

While I don't know anything about making plugins, or about making the specific plugin you want. And correct me if I'm wrong, but technically it is possible to make maps larger than 256 x 256. While in the editor that's the maximum size, you can open up the maps .json file in the data folder, and change the numbers next to "height" and "width" to change the map's size, and they can exceed said limit.

and then you can edit the actual map in the editor just fine too. and the map should load perfectly fine as well, though particularly large maps could result in lag. As long as you don't press space/Right click + edit, to enter the map's "map properties" tab then the game shouldn't bring the width and height down either.

This disadvantage can't be understated, and is the main reason why only the most experienced users should edit the mapfile to make them larger.

because if you do this, not only will the map be reduced to the official map size limit, but everything outside that limit will be deleted, possibly destroying a lot of work.

You could simply make multiple maps that have transfer player events with no visual effect. You'd need to set them far enough away from the edge to provide a visual buffer for the game window.

This only doesn't work if you have events running around randomly on the map (would also look screwy if you have party followers on, although you might be able to mess with a followers plugin to transfer them separately so they don't spontaneously stack on you).

Example:

I've decided to try and be more social and less nervous about engaging. I'm always over thinking things - from now on when I'm worried or don't get something I'll just ask.
Sometimes a mechanic that is meant to add challenge is just annoying. Even the Final Fantasy games did not completely escape this pitfall of design. (FF8 draw system I'm looking at you - grrrr)
starting working on the sprites for one of my games major antagonists finally. here's the first frame of his chanting motion in battle.
Have spent too much time hammering out with a friend just how to make a reoccurring enemy that permanently learns skills you use against her.
I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.
