Greetings, I’ve been working on this project for the past couple of weeks. It started when I wanted to replay FE6 on Hard Mode but was tired of the searing eye pain from the FE6/FE7 High Contrast.
It kinda grew from simply adding the darker outline on portraits to adding new/updated Battle Animations, to repalleting characters, then to recoloring tilesets themselves.
Well, I’ve gotten to the point of releasing a UPS for other people to try and see how they like it and help bug squash. The scope of the project is to recolor to be closer to Artwork / FE Heroes, while maintaining less bright colors, and unify nitpicks between FE6/FE7. (Like Marcus’s Orange and Purple Armor). I don’t plan to add new classes outside of purely visual. Think a upgraded Brigand for Berserker for Gonz so he can still scream-crit or Narcian being a Wyvern Knight instead of Lord.
I did make minor balance changes when I first started the project I haven’t reverted. (All Items values up to FE8 Standards, Armored Knights move 5 spaces, Wade & Lot’s Growths) anything outside of this scope belongs to the Masterpiece MoD will be.
I’m currently playing through it slowly on Hard Mode so as I get to what needs to be fixed I will.

Translation Patch Base: FE6 Localization 1.0
Almost every Tileset has been recolored & unsaturated / yellowed. This took about half of the total time getting it right. There is still some bugs, like Castle Tiles in Chapter 7, Scaenan Plain's Castle is unpalletted, and the Bridge in Chapter 13 looks off.
Marcus now has his FE7 Orange Armor, and his hair is more purpleish grey, than stark white. Lance and Allen have different colors for their hair and armor to stand out. Sue's Portrait was vastly updated to be more akin to her Heroes incarnation. Bor's Armor was changed from that Gawdy (imo) More Yellow-Than-Gold to look more Bronze Saul & Elen robes are now more virgin-white than slightly stained off-white Chad's Hair Color is more pronounced and more Chad-Like without the unmoving Wedge Karel and Fir's Hair was Darkened to match their more raven hair color from FEH Deke's Hair now stands out from his Armor. More Natural Flesh tone pronounces his scars more. Lot & Garret are more tanned. Lot was changed to add more of a difference from Wade. Astore & Igrene are much more tanned as well. Something Something Desert. Barte's Shirt Color is now back to Blue from FE7, but tempted to go back to Teal. Lugh's Robes are now a lot closer to FEH's Color design than Neon Yellow-Than-Gold Lilina's Hair was darkened to match Hector's more. Shanna's Hair was Darkened, but I feel too darkened. May Change. Zeiss's Armor was Colored to Match typical Enemy Wyvern Riders/Lords Color Milady is just a red mess, Not happy enough with it, want to Change. Noah and Treck's Armor are now more Uniformed in Color, with hair darkened. Jerrot's Armor is more Silver than White now. Echidna's Armor is now a darker teal to match artwork. Narcian colors are more bolder than orginial Zephiel's Armor is now darker to match FEH Idun's hair is now much whiter, and her Heterochromia is now much more pronounced. Merlinus has 2 portaits, one with Yellower Skin, I need to fix to his more natural flesh tone. Eliwood's Hair is now darker than Roy's due to Age. Guinivere is now really blonde. Hector is now rocking his dark navy armor with red cloak. Hair darkened for age. Sophia, Gale, Wendy, Minor Enemies, and NPCs are not recolored yet. Most Playable Character's are recolored properly, if they're not mentioned, they most likely didn't have much tweaks done and just lower contrast color.
90% of Enemies replatted to use a less vibrant red and more uniformed colors. Special Pallets for Bosses are not done, but I want to include later.

Weapons revalued to FE8 Values. (Thought it would be fun to do, but might undo) (This has actually made Hardmode Harder as the glut of Fighters at the start of the game are beyond deadly and more accurate) Majority Weapon Icons are my own, but I'm not happy with. Binding Blade, Durandal, Armads, Mulagir by SacredStones Armored Knights move 5 Spaces. Was done in the name of fun, but can easily revert. Wade & Lot's Growth & Bases Changed. Wade is just Garcia from FE8, and Lot is akin to Dorcas from FE7. - Might revert to stay pure. Rapier & Anti Horse Weapons now work on Nomads, Troopers, Troubadors, and Valkeries. (Was a bug fix imo)
Brunnaya's Battle Anim is probably messed up as it's using Redbean's Archsage Lilina Roy reverts to Old Animations for Binding Blade I really want to change Wolt's and Bor's Neon Hair. But nothing will make Bor's look better... Hugh & Lugh's Battle Pallet hasn't been updated yet. I want to use Redbean's Fir Myrmidon Sprite but it hasn't been scripted yet, but I might do it later. I'm not happy with my Weapon Icons, and I want to redo tomes. Might work on that more. Current FEBuilder cannot patch Character Backgrounds easily (that I know of yet), but I have a screen I would like to use.
If anyone wants to use the portraits I will be linking them in another thread, or feel free to take them in FEBuilder after patching a Rom.
If anyone wants to contribute feel free!
