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. This hack began before FE15 so the cast is mainly characters from before it.
- 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. A lot of work has been done over time to try and reduce pointless skill bloat while still allowing for interesting things like movement skills. (Also I totally did movement skills + canto first)
- 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 isn’t a hard mode hack though. Play on normal for a normal experience, play on hard for something harder than vanilla.
The most recent version of the patch can always be found in my discord but the last patch in the thread runs for 13 chapters.
