[FE8] Fire Emblem: Dust to Dust

Recommended Posts

[spoiler=Velvet]I would say you could give her access to all weapon types, but I feel like that would make her unbalanced. Unless of course there is a way to make it work



[spoiler=Episode 11]Shit escalated quickly. A few episodes ago they were fighting memes

Velvet should work like Xane from shadow dragon, maybe someone already did something like that. You can ask Arch, he has a FE1 remake in the work.

If you can't do the Xane thing, then just muck around with animations. Pick a weapon type most suited for what little we saw of her fighting style at the end of volume 2; kicking (fast, light, that probably equates to swords), or just go for whatever short range weapon you're most lacking in the party. Remember that animations don't actually have to represent weapon type in FE.

Therefore, how I'd do it would be have Velvet barrage a volley of kicks as a regular close range attack, and...

[spoiler=If you haven't seen Volume 3, Ep. 11 yet, you probably don't want to click here...]

...Have her summon and use spectral heavy weapons like Crescent Rose or Yatsuhashi's great big sword for her close range critical. Then for ranged animations, I'd have her make use of Coco's minigun or Penny's beam blades, though I'm not sure which would be best for criticals. Coco slaughtered lots of Grimm with that minigun, but Penny's blades brought down a dropship, and Velvet's spectral version slaughtered a Paladin. Or if you want a lighter ranged weapon, there's Yang's gun gauntlets or Weiss' Myrtenaster can fire sword beams.

There's plenty of options, but you don't have to go overboard. One spectal weapon per animation, two at most. No need to do something like this: http://dishwasher1910.deviantart.com/art/RWBY-Unlimited-Blade-Works-589200514

(Yes, that's perfectly SFW. Deviantart has some good, non-porn artists.)

On another track, calling it now: Weiss will be able to...

[spoiler=Again, not if you haven't got at least to the end of Winter's scenes in volume 3]...summon when/if she promotes!

Come on guys, if it's worth doing then it's worth doing right. I'm not going to settle for anything less than

the ability to perfectly copy your allies' weapons.

And I even have a pretty good idea of how to do it, though it's by far the most ambitious hack I've attempted.

So uh...yang's sprite...

I know NOTHING about programmin etc. but:

[spoiler=(Spoiler: volume 3 episode 11)]Is it possible to make something that generate a weapon randomly (from a pre-set pool) with 3 uses? (Like glass weapon in awakening)

Perhaps if Velvet is fielded in a chapter, at the end of the chapter, she will get a copy of one weapon of one ally that was fielded in that chapter, except with only a few uses? Also when equipped, they give a large stat bonus to certain stats, like SPD and SKL with Crescent Rose, etc.

what's crazy about this is that it balances itself however you might have to increase the uses to 5-6, Max weapon usage will be ~25 with the added problem of inventory space aswell... It also appears that it might even cost a turn to copy weapons.. always interesting to see new mechanics in FE fan games.

Are you planning for her to be able to equip basic weapons though? like iron sword and shit?

Initial concept:

Once I'm done the copied weapon will last 3 turns and cannot be traded, sold, dropped, given to storage etc.

Finale hype guys lets go

Copied weapons now have blue names and change back after 3 turns (4 Enemy phases). Also Velvet can equip any copied weapon without needing the required weapon level. Oh and I threw together a super unpolished Velvet mug for demonstration purposes.

Just gotta say, this looks really awesome. Great work.

Also, for Velvet's thing, are you gonna make it a camera, or just keep it as a book?

Inspired by the incredible feats of SquareRootOfPi, I give you:

HP bars!

The sense of achievement is almost enough to cancel out that Volume 3 Finale. Almost.

Woah, crazy.

Looking forward to this even more, haha. Probably my most anticipated FE hack if only because I'm a RWBY fan (though MS and some others look solid). XP

Curious how you feel about that finale/what you might be doing with regards to it (if anything), but you seem like you're pretty dedicated/serious about this so I'll probably be content with whatever you manage to do. Keep it up! :)
