REDFE is an FE8 (U) hack featuring a lot of red haired characters. Sounds familiar? Yeah, this is inspired by Midori.
Originally, this idea started out as some people throwing around idea's after playing Midori. We looked at different colors like red, purple, yellow, etc.
Purple did look interesting, but eventually I decided to start up REDFE as a bit of a learning exercise, since I've been watching FE hacking for a while, but I'd never really commited to learning.
A lot of these modern tools are real easy to learn and I've gotten a ton of support. After I got given my first mug from Tyty, I felt like "hmm, maybe I should actually do this." So I'm here now.
So far, it looks like we'll have:
- A new set of characters. It has Subaki, Dorcas and Radd, so you'll see the red heads you like. Unless you like Skrimir. Maybe. Roy and Eliwood are your main lords.
- Writing altered to accommodate our different cast. The plot still follows the general strokes of FE8, but Lyon isn't our old friend.
- Newish maps and events. I'm not a great mapper, but I can work events well enough. This is a bit more than a reskin, hopefully.
- FEU's skill system is featured in this. That's an impressive piece of ASM and I intend to put it to use.
- A level of difficulty higher than FE8. I doubt I'll change enemy growths that much, but I definitely intend for them to get better weapons.
This ain't coming out for a while and even a public demo is months off. I'm currently up to C3/4, wasn't planning on releasing a demo until C8 was done.
Thanks to Tyty, @Blueyguy, @Blade, Zmr for their help with mugs, everyone who worked on the skill system and the FEU discord for helping me learning how to work EA.
