Hey all.

I've decided to (attempt to) make a hack/mod/whatever of Fire Red. The title as of now is "Pokemon Orange". It's completely tentative, and will undoubtedly be changed later. The details are hazy for now, but as soon as I get them weeded out, I'll post them here.

Here are the details I have as of now:

All the Leaders and Elites will have names that relate to their specialty type, just like in the real games.

Also, all the towns' names will be the names of elements of the periodic table that do not end in "-ium". Examples: Wolfram City, (I say wolfram, not tungsten) Xenon Town, Boron Village....

The Sevii Islands will be an archipelago, connected by bridges. They will be renamed to the Roden islands, and they will be renamed after rodents, namely the rat, marmot, beaver, squirrel, gopher, capybara, and cavy/guinea pig.

Gym 1: Leader is Lisa, uses Grass Types. (Comes from "lea".)
Gym 2: Leader is Regina, uses Normal Types. (Comes from "regular".)
Gym 3: Leader is Schuyler, uses Flying Types. (Comes from "sky".)
Gym 4: Leader is Marie, uses Water Types. (Comes from "marine".)
Gym 5: Leader is Felix, uses Ice Types. (Comes from "freeze".)
Gym 6: Leader is Dirk, uses Dark Types. (You can guess this one.)
Gym 7: Leader is Martin, uses Steel Types. (Comes from "metal".)
Gym 8: Leader is Taylor, uses Fire Types. (Comes from "flare".)

Ok, I'll reveal the elites.

Highlight to view spoiler.
#1: Faye, uses Ghost Types. (Comes from "fey", another word for fairy.)
#2: Omar, uses Electric Types. (Comes from "ohm")
#3: Raul, uses Fighting Types. (Comes from "brawl".)
#4: Brent, uses Ground Types. (Kinda comes from "brick".)
Champ: Caleb. No specialty, but uses a Suicune. That's all I'm telling you!


Check-list:

[X] Towns and Islands renamed
[] Gyms redesigned
[X] Gym Leaders recreated
[X] Elite 4 redesigned
[] Cities redesigned
[] Routes redesigned
[] Storyline created
[/] Pokedex recreated (unnecessary, gave it a half-X, aka a solidus)

Pictures:

Rough Draft of Gym 4 (made in Advance Map and Paint.net)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Updates:
I've turned Viridian into an icy crater. Blame Kyurem. I've also nearly demolished Pewter, it's just a tiny village now. Cinnabar was relocated to the end of Cerulean Cape. It just felt empty there.
The Power Plant has been converted into a dam, and the legendary birds will be moved to a secret area.
Also, Viridian City (Read: Xenon Crater) will be accessed from where Articuno once stood. Rock Tunnel will also now be a training area, much like Iron Island. It will still need Flash, though. Also, all 386 Pokemon will be available. The starters can be obtained from wild encounters, Hoenn and Johto Pokemon will run free in the Roden Islands, and those stupid event-only items will be obtained via non-event means.

I can't wait to see how this works out. I presume there'll be some pictures at some point, so we can all have a sneak peak? ;)

I like that idea for a gym. Its a great way to scoop up XP, are you making your own pokemon or using existing ones?

Thanks. And I'm probably going to use a combination, some old favourites of mine, and some new ones I made up.

And Sudowoodo will be changed to Grass/Rock. It bothers me.

Sorry about the lack of updates, guys. I've been hooked on XD strangely. Ah well, it can't be helped.

I'll try and get a working demo out soon. Maybe up to Pewter City, or as it's now called, Mercury Village?

Uhm, about that. Since I'm too lazy to create new Pokemon, I'm just going to use old ones, UNLESS I come up with an idea during the process. I just don't want to spend extra time getting nowhere.

To all those waiting:

I will start work again eventually, the project has not been cancelled. Expect an influx of updates and stuff over the summer; I've just had school and everything. I also forgot it existed during March Break, so yeah. Sorry.

BUMP!

Sorry for the long wait. I totally forgot about it, even though the icon for the file was right on my desktop. Well, now that it's summer, I should get a chance to work on it.

And Charizard, you need tools. They're available everywhere. I mainly use these tools:

AdvanceMap for editing map layouts and Wild Pokemon
AdvanceText for editing what NPCs say
P.E.T. for editing Trainer data
RSBall for editing battle sprites
Overworld Editor R.E. for editing overworld sprites
Paint.net for editing other art
Visual Boy Advance for playing the game

P.E.T. and RSBall are available from Elitemap in a pack, but I only use those two; the others I don't.

Charizard, some advice: If you're going to make a hack, use Fire Red as a base. It has an available INI file, so text editing is a breeze. A hex editor isn't required, regardless of what many people tell you. And if you get stuck on ideas, move on. There's no required order, although I recommend doing the simpler things first, as then you'll get more accomplished.

Also, don't worry about a storyline. An antagonist is not required. If you want a storyline, just think about your region. What is the geography? What main buildings are there? Are there any roadblocks? If you still get stuck, don't be afraid to look to past Pokemon games for inspiration.

Some final parting words of advice: It doesn't matter what anybody else thinks of your hack. As long as you like it, it's good.

Also, don't think that I've abandoned the project due to the lack of updates. I just got off school, so a slew of updates should be coming in the next two months.

See you all,

-FI

I've done Elite #4, Brent. He's an old man who likes ground Pokemon. I was thinking of making him Bertha's brother.

I've also done the layout of gym 8.

See? Updates!

i always enjoy playing a well put together hack, so good luck with it


oh and seeing you changing sudowoodo, may i suggest changing Gastly and evos to Ghost/Dark simply due to that they dont even learn a Posion type move by level-up

I don't know if this would classify as "well put-together", but I try.

Also, if I make Gastly Ghost/Dark, should I do the same for Haunter and Gengar?

what i mean by 'well put-together' is that its different to the original and stands out against other hacks but i will still be looking forward to try it out, is this your first attempt at a hack?

well it would be logical to do so, but its your choice if you actually do change it

Okay, maybe there won't be an influx of updates in the summer. I've been distracted by so many things, it's crazy. The project will get finished eventually, that is a promise.

Aaaand I'm back.

I have some horrible news: I got a new computer and forgot to put the files over. The project is, well, screwed. But I will get it up again. I suck at time management. Oh well. I've got NO progress now, but I will try to recreate what I had as best as I can. I'm currently working on gym badge redesigns (they won't be in the game, consider them "concept art"). I'll download the file I uploaded on Mediafire and work from there. I'm sorry that I have to break this news to you all, you've been really supportive, but, as I said before, the project WILL get done (eventually).

Again, sorry,
-FI
