Hello there, Romhacking community!
Lately I've been going over a lot of the game I love and played the hell out of them throughout the years.
While I still have many projects left to be done (mainly Zelda 1 & 2 Redux), I have ideas for other Redux projects which I am not sure might even happen, but I'd like to share the ideas in case someone adept enough decides to take these ideas into a fully fledged hack.
While the list is just a handful, this doesn't mean I might make them, but nevertheless here are some of the many ideas I have for other hacks:Ocarina of Time Redux:
Spoiler: Metroid (NES) Redux:Pokemon Crystal Redux:
(Based on Randomizer v5.1):
* Randomizer-based to have all the QoL from it (Toggle boots from DPad, Ocarina on DPad, bugfixes, faster text, bunny hood accelerates Young Link like in Majora's, etc.)
* Remove all code related to cutscene removal
* Remove Rando Title screen code
* Remove seed hash code from File Select screen
* Have all items in vanilla locations (Seed: S11YGOB8C3 / id=267188 / Settings: AJCYTKJSB2FMAA2WCGAAAAK2DUCA)
From BetterOoT instead:
* Add Ocarina to D-Pad down
* Port Bunny Hood code (for BetterOoT maybe?)https://github.com/TestRunnerSRL/OoT-Randomizer/blob/Dev/ASM/src/bunny_hood.asm
Spoiler: Pokemon Yellow ++/Redux:
* Use pokecrystal as base
* Redefine all Pokemon locations based on GSC and RBY for a full 251 Pokemon in one game experience
* Unique party sprites per-pokemon from the Wiki: https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal/wiki/Add-a-new-party-menu-icon
* QoL changes (Fairy type, physical/special split, etc.). Check pokecrystal wiki for more changes
* Running shoes
* Other changes based on Perfect Crystal
* Use pokecrystal as base. This way all of the Gen 2 features are used in Yellow Redux (better inventory, Pokedex, GameBoy Color palettes, etc.)
* Remake RBY assets in Crystal. Get rid of Johto altogether
* Merge locations for Pokemons from RBY for a full 151 pokemon in one game experience
* Unique sprites based on the best sprites from RBY converted to full colour assets for GBC/Crystal
* Follow Me script for Pikachu
* Pikachu reactions script
* Pikachu Surfing Mini-game script
* Implement Silph Scope behaviour for the Pokemon Tower from RBY into Crystal
* Unique party sprites per-Pokemon: https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal/wiki/Add-a-new-party-menu-icon
* Physical-special split, Fairy type, etc. Check pokecrystal wiki for more changes
Any ideas for a Majora's Mask Redux would be nice, I tried thinking of some but couldn't really come up with anything besides being able to use the Song of Double Time to jump to whatever hour or day you want, like in the 3D Remake.
Let me know what you guys think, or if you have other Redux ideas!
