Hello! I am just starting out with RPG Maker MV.
I am trying to do the simplest of events, making a stationary NPC that has dialogue when interacted with.
But the NPC event graphic will not show up on the map.

I was under the impression that if there were no conditions the event should always be present?

is that screenshot from you starting a new game or from you loading a saved game?
a savegame contains the current map, and any changes to that map made after the savefile will only load if the player leaves the map and reenters, or if a new game is started.

second possibility is that you made the mistake and deployed into the same folder as your project is - that will redirect all future playtests to the old deployed version instead of the current data until you repair your project.

It's from the play test option during game creation.
I made a new project and the play tests are updating with the game now.
From what it sounds like, the second scenario was exactly my problem.

Thank you so much!

It's from the play test option during game creation.
the playtest gets you to the title screen, and on the titlescreen you have the option to either start a new game or to continue a saved game. That is what the first option is about - both are playtests.

the second scenario was exactly my problem.
if the second case (deployment into project directory) was the case, then you need to repair the project before it becomes usable again - that does not go away from itself, and for the future you should never deploy into your project directory.
