Project of the Week: Sun God’s Wrath
Long ago in a distant forum, I, Blademaster with an exclamation mark, released an unspeakable evil. But an amazing forum home to the most elite of hackers, stepped forth to oppose. Shwing, Shwang, Slash! Before the final awesome hacking tool could be released, I released my hack on another forum, and for whatever reason didn’t do so here. For which I had no good excuse. Now as FEE3 2019 comes around, Blademaster without an exclamation mark seeks to finally release his hack on FEU, and never speak in the third person again.
As is already obvious, I’ve never been very good at making introductory topics. You can find some screen shots below:
Anyway, Sun God’s Wrath is an FE8 hack that I’ve been working on for too long for whatever reason. It’s the sequel to Corrupt Theocracy. I scrapped the original version, Sun God’s Challenge, and then started working on Sun God’s Wrath instead as the tools available in the hacking community just became so much more robust and powerful. It’s really amazing how far the community has come since all the way back in 2010 when I made Corrupt Theocracy, and even the little reskin hacks I tried to work on before then back when all we really had was nightmare and the very first version of the event assembler wasn’t even released yet IIRC.
In it’s current form, SGW is a hack that makes use of a lot of the more modern features available to the community these days that didn’t exist back then. It makes use of the skill system, the leadership star hack, gives units a con growth, and features some other small things that I hope people find enjoyable.
In regards to the story, it attempts to take what it can from CT and make something that I hope is at least passable. The story follows Astrea, a member of a mercenary organization called Propater, as she fights to restore the world that the sun god, Pyron, seems intent on altering in his ideal mold. You meet, work with, and fight against people from CT in this adventure, and make some new friends along the way. It’s best not to think too hard on it.
NOTE: Patch 4.1 does not contain some of the updates picture above, notably the strength/magic split, the movement growth, and capture. These are features that will be added to the final version of the hack.
The Version 4.1 patch is available for download here.
This is version 4.1 of this hack. It is 19 chapters long (prologue - chapter 18) and there are no gaiden chapters. Outside of bug fixes, the next major patch will be the last one, finishing up the hack and adding in supports. I don’t expect to release this patch until around December at the earliest as I don’t want to release the final patch during “Three Houses Season” so to say. Even after finishing all four routes, I want to finish the game on Maddening mode as well as some part of me hopes for a Jeralt/work together with everyone or Agarthan DLC route.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, READ THE README AND CREDITS!!!
Have fun and enjoy!
