Could you guys possibly make side-quests in the game. Most of the side-quests are in disc 1 in the original and the FFVII pirate only goes to the materia tree and then ends with the so-called "Final Battle". You would have to edit the Shinra Mansion where Vincent is and if you can find a way to make Wutai on the map. Don't worry about finding Yuffie in the forest. Thats just too much to ask.
Unfortunately, that's far beyond my ability. I do know how to edit the game's events for the most part, but I couldn't figure out what tells the game that an event occurs on which map. And I couldn't figure out how to change the pointers to the events. So making new events would be impossible for me. If someone can figure out how to do that and add new space in the event banks, I would be happy to make the events. Also, another map would have to be created for the Shinra Mansion Basement.
Plus, more space would be needed for the dialogue. I'm sure that another bank can be created in the space the Chinese characters currently occupy. But I don't know how to make it.
And to add Vincent, more space would have to be made for his battle sprite, stats, and weapons (Unless Barret's weapons can be used for Vincent to save some time and space.) Space would also need to be made for his mugshot, which shouldn't be too hard. And to add him in to some of the game's events, which shouldn't be too hard either.
And for finding Yuffie, rather than meeting her in a random battle, I could just place a teleport tile on the world map in the forest and add the scene where she joins the party. But just like Vincent, additions need to be made in order to add her into the game.
Wutai is on the map, and it does lead to somewhere, but that place is not a fully functioning town.
I'm sure it's all possible, but much of it is beyond my ability.
I kind of think it's more than that by this point, unless you consider music, and a new battle system(If someone replies to the want ad if I remember right) a "graphic hack"
I would call it an overhaul. I mean, the game has been translated and changes were made to the gameplay, graphics, levels, and sound. Basically, everything about the game has been changed in some way.
Junon Harbor is done:
This map is actually longer, but I cut some of it out since it's just more of the harbor with some more boxes.
