FF6 - Brave New World

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

What started out with my initial desire to properly case everyone’s names turned into a rather innocent discussion between a co-worker of mine and I about ways to improve/fix the original game, which in turn (somehow) became this.

FF6 - Brave New World is a fairly complete overhaul of Final Fantasy VI, featuring…

  • Character-based esper restrictions & new stat boosts that promote greater diversity and allow for customized development.
  • Esper leveling system that disassociates esper bonuses from traditional levels.
  • New and reworked formulas which rescue everything that isn’t magic or magic evasion from the dump-stat heap.
  • Rebalanced equipment, items, spells, and skills that aim to remove dead weight and give players more (and better) choices.
  • A complete overhaul of enemies from their stats to their behavior to better challenge veteran players and newcomers alike.
  • Tons of bugfixes, as well as remedies to many of the game’s more annoying aspects (such as rage hunting taking a lifetime).
  • A new script that restores much of what was lost in translation and builds on existing plotlines and characterization.
  • And much, much more, detailed in the Readme (particularly section 4).

One thing BNW is not is a difficulty mod. While it is harder than vanilla FF6, we wanted to keep it accessible to newcomers while at the same time giving veterans a new experience. Hopefully, we succeeded.

Curious about what other people are saying about BNW? Like the mod and want to let us know? Hate it and want to tell us how much we suck? Completely indifferent and just bored? Feel free to drop by what’s become the official forum for discussing BNW:

Definitely a Difficulty Mod

Reviewed By: Phaxuji on 15 May 2019

I downloaded this hack with the assumption that the included description was honest. “Not a difficulty mod” … okay. Sounds good.

Except that it was completely untrue.

It’s fine if you wanna hack a game. Do whatever you want to it. Make it as hard or as easy as you want. Just don’t mislead people who download your hack.

And that’s why I can’t recommend this. Even if someone created the best hack of all time, if it were misrepresented to people, I wouldn’t recommend it. If the author of the hack had just been forthright and said “Hey everyone, this hack’s a bit more difficult than the vanilla version.”, I probably would’ve given a “Yes” recommendation instead. After all, I can tell a lot of work went into this. But I can’t get over feeling duped and lied to.

As far as the hack itself, let’s be clear: not everyone uses save states. Some of us prefer to play a game on real hardware. A lot of people that play and enjoy this hack do so with the use of save states (as is evident from the other reviews and forums that discuss this hack). With save states, this hack might be great. I don’t know - I played long enough to realize this WAS a difficulty mod and quit after a couple more hours into it.

So as a warning to everyone who might play this hack thinking it’s not difficult - it’s not true. It is difficult. Just be prepared.
