FE8 Hack: The Sun God's Wrath (V3.3 release 12/9/2018 - Two new chapters)

Recommended Posts

It's less drive and more obsession? Right now I don't have many other things I'd rather do than hack so I have free time, but otherwise I think I'm spending too much time hacking. This is part of the reason why I stopped working on Sun God's Challenge, because I felt I was spending too much time working on it rather than on other personal hobbies of mine. I'm still having fun working on my hacks, but I'm just not good at time management when it comes to how I juggle my own personal activites.

The maps of yours I decided to use were just what I had in mind though so I'm glad they're out there. I've really tried to include every public assest I can in making this hack so that even if this ends up not being good, people might be able to look at the ideas and things put into it and go "Oh, this is neat, I can use this for my hack too!"

that sounds fine with me, to be fair with your last hack you had some fine ideas, just really rushed.

unlike alot of idea guys tho you actually get stuff out on the field.

Huh, that's sort of what drove me to do my LP. I may end the summer only halfway through, it's looking like. Anyway, it seems like you really have something here. I like that you're using some canon Fire Emblem lore as well as introducing your own.

Oh man, this reminds me of when I tried to have Beyond Dreams as a ROM hack. Before I knew it, ideas were coming left and right and it kept being less and less plausible. Now it's a full-size game that will probably stay in my mind for years since I'm no good at coding right now.

Chapter 7 is done. For the next couple of chapters, I have all the events done, so it's just a matter of writing the text. However, I'll be very busy this week so updates won't be very fast.

Chapter 7 is a survive mission. In it, the enemies specialize in using rarer weapons than the ones you've encountered so far, but nothing to over the top like an army of killer axe weilding bandits.

Unlike in FE5, scrolls in this hack only give a total bonus of +20 to overall growth and almost always also cause a stat to be lowered. The only exception is the Ulir scroll since it only boosts luck.

Also, all the supports are done(well formatting at least), so when a patch is released and you look at unit supports, you'll get an idea of who you have left to recruit!

Holy shit, is that Roy?!

Also, in screenshot #4 (bottom left), Wyverns shouldn't have an apostrophe.

No, Elliot is Roy.

I'll fix the bottom typo.

Are those a Brigand and Ravager I see?

Yes. With reclassing I did my best to make all unpromoted classes playable. I think the only ones that aren't are male Archer and male thief. For promoted classes, all of them should be playable.

It took awhile, but chapter 8 is pretty much done. Just have to do a few touchups here and there.

Chapter 8 is a boss kill mission. Uhhh... can't think of much else to say? I started using LordGlenn's public weapon icon repository so now the tomes look much better.

So do you think you will release this when you finish it, or when you get far enough that you are happy with it.

Edit: and it should be a Mandrake, not get back at Mandrake

Mandrake is another character, so it makes sense.

And I also agree with dondon's sentiments regarding Ringworm. There's got to be a better name for it!

As for another name for Ringworm, I suggest some kind snake name, modern or mythological, as a replacement. Ringworm just doesn't roll off the tongue, though, being a poison tome, it's not meant to be the prettiest thing ever.

good god you work fast, chapter 8 already?!

Well I've certainly slowed down in pace since this chapter took me two weeks to make (though I did take a week off) and I had a bunch of material for it already made. I'm still really behind on supports(only one character has all of them done and I'm still working on the second) and unit palettes.

you named a dark magic spell after a fungal infection

The spell used the evil eye animation and poisoned foes, so due to the ring like nature of the animation it was the first thing that came to mind. The next thing would be Rinka because of the metroid enemy though.

So do you think you will release this when you finish it, or when you get far enough that you are happy with it.

Edit: and it should be a Mandrake, not get back at Mandrake

I would like to release something for FEE3 this year. The ideal goal is that it goes up to chapter 17 or 18(don't remember which I said before, probably 18). Worst case it goes to chapter 13 which is the end of part 2, the previous chapters being the end of part 3.

Also as Eclipse said, Mandrake is a character, specifically one from Corrupt Theocracy.

Since it's a poison tome, how about something like Blight or Contagion?

The names dondon suggested felt too intense for a D rank spell and I do like these a bit more. I might go with Blight since Contagion just makes me think of the swarm animation. Ouroboros would be a good snake name if the spell was a higher rank.

Chapter 9 is "done" and by "done" I mean all the events and text should be working, but it hasn't been balanced yet so I'm not sure how hard or easy it is. Chapter 9 is an escort mission. In it, you must escort someone to speak with one group of characters, followed by another group of characters. It's also the first FOW mission.

For the time being, I'm going to probably just hack my way through chapters to test events and such since it saves me time and it's easier to edit events rather than switch back and forth between working on text. Only four more chapters to go for the minimum FEE3 chapter requirement patch, though I still have to do all the supports for the inbetween characters in the meantime. I don't think I'll be able to reach my original goal of finishing by August but one chapter a week progress isn't bad? This chapter had the events go by very fast, but for some odd reason I ended up writing a lot of text for them. I'm hoping future chapters have less text, but for now I feel like this chapter ended up being a bit long.

This is looking very nice, especially the Bow General! Is the Iron Ballista there a placeholder, or will Ballistas be weapons Bow users can carry around? I say that you shouldn't work too hard on balancing chapters, but rather getting your story solid before you balance things.

Only generals will be able to use Ballista and make use of that animation when using them. I think there are only two different Ballista weapons. Also, due to class constraints, Generals use all four physical weapons for their class.

yo that animation from Gabe knight is so sick lmao

Yeah it's a great animation.

Speaking of animations, there were all the new ones just added recently in the new animation thread. I'd love to include them but I'm not sure how to fit them in, so I guess there will be no dragoons or griffon riders etc. in this hack for the time being ;_;

So glad to see this is still in progress, I played an earlier version many, many moons ago, and really loved it, the story is really promising, and I think it may be the best FE8 hack to be made, so i'll be really looking up for further progress :D
