This was cleared a while back but I got badly hung up before pushing it through, I do apologize for that. This patch does everything the alternate version did but doesn't get rid of looking around the map with Start, so we have obsoleted said alternate. I've modified your description accordingly, please let me or another moderator know if you'd like it changed.
This patch works great! A very basic but very appreciated quality-of-life feature. I'd honestly recommend it for any hack that has any overworld events at all, i.e. most of them.
