For Turn-Based Battle Systems like DTB (Default Turn Battle), letting the player see the turn order visually can add a whole lot more depth to the battle system. This plugin will add a display of icons showing the turn order of the player’s party and the enemy party within a corner of the screen (modifiable).

NOTE! This plugin does NOT work with tick-based Battle Systems like ATB or CTB! It is specifically made to work only with turn-based battle systems.
