As a newcomer to FE Hacking, I wanted to create a little project for myself in order to familiarize myself with FEBuilder. I had a simple idea of “Can I replace every playable unit in FE6 with a character from FE7”, and after 2 months worth of work, I now present the FE6/7 character swap hack!
Anyways, this is neat! I like how you’ve worked in a few friendly NPCs to make up the difference between FE7 and FE6’s recruitable party sizes.
I can’t decide whether or not to recommend replacing older!Eliwood with Elbert… on the one hand, it’s the logical thing to do there with the character replacement scheme. On the other hand, Eliwood and his father Eliwood but from twenty years in the future is very funny
I thought doing it by recruitment order would be much more interesting than trying to match characters based on strengths. Making simple changes like replacing Shanna with Florina just made it feel too much like a reskin.
I understand, and I think that’s good reasoning! It changes up the experience more when there are tangible modifications to what classes and such you have available as of which parts of the game, as opposed to just replacing each character with whichever FE7 character is most similar to them.
Hannah becomes basically unusable after her flux breaks, so if you can I’d recommend adding flux to one of the earlier shops. Since otherwise have to wait till after chapter 12 to get to a shop with flux
