That's actually a very good idea. I don't think it would bother people if you released a pure translation of LP as well as a version with your own changes. That way the purist can play it in pure form while everyone who really supports your changes can play that version. It'd be the best of both worlds, I suppose.
'Kay, no relationships. That should be fine for you, QM.
Oh, and how is your hack going along?
OR maybe I release one with the relationships,
and then another one without it.
Wesley suggested this to me to see how the people react.
Anyways, you said people with a Grade 10th education knows how to use XSE.
Well, I'm only in Grade 9, and got the hang of it. What happened to the people who are Grade 10?
How about 2 people? I said in the thread that it wasn't a big deal to have the relationships but I've had a change of heart. It's not really your place to do such things. And the fact that all of the Gym Leaders are related to others from different regions is not only stupid [my opinion] but it is also highly improbable [fact].
I really don't see why you're not getting it yet; everyone merely wants a bug-free translation of LP, not your personal interpretation of what it should be. And to be quite honest you come off as a snob and make it seem like you're doing the whole community a favor by translating LP when the fact of the matter is anyone with a 10th grade education who knows how to work XSE can do a translation. I don't mean to come off as rude but stop acting like you're the only person capable of translating this hack.
PS: In all honesty the "localized" names aren't very good. For one thing there's no point to last names as the ROM carries a 12 character limit for names. Having a first and a last name will easily exceed that limit. Also you seem too focused puns and having the names relate to the Gym Leader's type to realize that at the end of the day the names still have to resemble real names. Have you ever heard of a person named Bipeda? In the official games all of the names sounded like real names. The one's you picked do not.
