Why is everyone telling you to make a counterpart? I don't get it! Just let him finish this first!
Anyway, I've really liked the look of this hack from the very beginning. For some reason I really like the first town and route, because they had the sea to the north, and I just thought it looked really great and unusual. But you've restarted the hack since then, so has this changed?
Good luck with the rest of this hack because it looks great so far! (and I love that you've used the FireRed tiles)
