Name: Pokémon Liquid Ocean
Code base: Pokémon Fire Red (U) [BPRE]
Date started: June 19, 2008
Creator: Christos (Semele, Cierra)
Language: English



» New region - The region of Soala, with many different environments and home to all kinds of Pokémon
» New storyline - Find the true goals of both Lunaria and the Crimson Wings
» Custom tiles There will be custom buildings in each town, trees, grass etc. will stay the same
» New characters Rivals, friends and enemies battling you and helping you with your quest
» Small quests Help people in Soala by getting them items they need, delivering messages, and many more; there will be rewards

It's a special for Colin today, his father, Ethan, is showing him and his best friend, Nate, the invention he's been working on for the past months, and Mael, a friend of your father's, is going to give both of you your first Pokémon. Colin's father though, has left leaving a message saying he was going to help people with his new invention. This doesn't worry Colin, since his father has done that before, but when Kyle, Nate's brother, leaves too, without saying anything, Colin and Nate decide to try and find their relatives, while training to obtain the eight Soala League badges. In this quest, Colin comes across two groups which are "trying to make the world a better place". Is Colin's father and Kyle in one of these groups? What are the two groups' goals? Play and find out!

Colin | Nate | Kyle | Mael | Louise

Lunaria is an organization, founded by two siblings who were both scientists after they created an unstable formula, the Lunarian Formula. Lunaria's leader is now Onyx, one of the two siblings, his name is unknown and he hides his face with a mask. The other sibling left Lunaria after disagreeing with Onyx on what to do with the Formula. Each of the members of this secret organization has a different role and position there.
Lucia | Sophia | Tristan | Emily | Joshua

The Crimson Wings are a small group consisting of three well-known criminals; they’re seen around the region committing minor crimes. They’re trying to gather information about Lunaria, and nobody knows how they know about the organization and why they want the information.
Alex | Garet | Kaitlyn

    Looks very good, nice screenshots

    Also you say; Code base: FireRed BPRE

    Is that (U) or (E) or something else, that can confuse quite a few people

    Hope to play the Alpha soon

      Yihaa its there already It looks really awesome. I like the nice paletts of grass and trees. I Really like how every town has its own color of flowers and how some routes have both. Keep up the good work.

          wow. another moderator doing a hack! yay! i'd love to be an alpha tester.

          i think you should change the palettes. i noticed the flowers are different.
          it looks like you're far in this hack already. if you don't have any beta testers, i'd be glad to help. thanx.

              Oh, you've finally decided to make a comeback. Well, that's a good news indeed

              Thread presentation seems to be really neat, but I would prefer if the text was aligned to left. It's just a suggestion and it is up to you anyway. But, you have made a great job, as always. And you have provided us with a whole bunch of screenshots. I especially liked the one mentioning Pokémart girls Well, it seems that here comes another Jake. Neat presentation, great storyline... Everything makes this game look professional. I hope you will keep it up this time, and let me know if you need help with anything... I am starting to be pretty skilled in spriting. Well, you know where to find me, if you need something.

              Once again, great hack, it is more amazing than it was in all of the development phases. Good luck!

                  You should have been quiet about it, Deric, it is a secret. I don't mind to not be a part of pre-release testers, but I think the rest of mortals like me would be less in hype if you kept the tests secret.

                  Anyway, you seem to proceed really quickly from what Deric has told, Christos. Keep it up

                    I was thinking about this hack yesterday and I was wondering what happened to it because it looked so good but now its back again. I hope this hack gets finished this time because it looks really good and a lot of hacks never get finished. Good luck with everything and I can't wait to play it.

                    BPRE is for the American one, so I don't think I'll need. That and I don't think there's anyone hacking the European one.

                    I haven't seen any colors I'd like to use in the other palettes, so I'm not sure if I'll change them. The grass palette is changed a bit, though.

                    Nate is your rival now, Colin is the main character.

                      Wow, this looks stunning. I can't wait for the Alpha to come out.

                      I don't really like how the main character's hat is crooked, though. It just looks odd to see that in the game... but, that's not really changing my opinion of the game. Hope you finish this!

                          Andrew: [Laughs] No you're not.

                          Ben: Yeah, well, sometimes I am. Occasionally.

                          Eric: And people of the world, don't call him on Skype, Sundays between like 3:00 and 8:00 PM because that's when he edits the show.

                          Andrew: When he does, yeah.

                          Ben: If you call me...okay...you think a dementor is bad? You think Lord Voldemort is bad? [In deep voice] You haven't felt the wrath of Ben Schoen.

                            Wow, you've been hyping this up quite a bit lately and you went beyond my expectations, Christos, well done. You pretty much already know my opinion from MSN. XD I'm a huge fan of this, and I'm really looking forward to more. :D The multiple storylines also seem pretty interesting. I simply love it. ;D Also, like the organization, simple and clean. Keep it up Christos! [/generic]

                            finally. I've been waiting to see your hack, Chrissy. =3
                            anyways, lovely presentation.
                            i like the story, and the tiles as well.

                            good luck~

                              its back!
                              You can always expect a moderator to do great on a hack.
                              the whole layout seems great, but i'm going to have to agree with martin™, the text really does look better to me on the left side, but its your choice.
                              I was wondering why you changed the rombase and world map.
                              was it for a certain reason or did you just feel like doing it?
                              the side quests seem like a great thing but are they going to be all on a certain area(like a job board) or are people going to ask you to help them?
                              lastly, i was wondering if you changed the beginning of the old Liquid ocean since it appears you have changed so much already.
                              i'll ask more questions later because i don't have any more at the moment.
                              well, best of luck on the hack Christos!

                                Well, well, if it isnt ol' Liquid Ocean! I wonder if pigs will start flying or something?

                                Happy to know that apparently the rom hacking bug finally came back to you. I'll be checking if your scripting skills have increased (after all, I've always considered you an excellent scripter and kinda my inspirator to put some effort at scripting ), dont let me down!

                                About the game, so far, mapping screenshots, alright, everything looks nicely mapped. Seems like you are also going for the "FR-with-some-additions" style, right? Hmmm, though I think it's best to try something new, but, let's wait to see what you manage to pull out (as long as the game is interesting, graphics wont matter too much, at least to me)

                                Do I need to tell you this? I dont know, but since it does not hurt to receive them: "Good luck, man!"

                                  Hey it's me! Your #3,643 Fan!
                                  YEAH! Liquid Ocean is the best! :D

                                  Good to see you back in action Christos. :]
                                  Mapping looks splendid as usual, and I'm sure the scripting is coming along just splendidly.

                                  Well, cheerio mate. I thought I'd just leave a comment.
                                  After all, I am your #3,643 fan.

                                    Finally, after some time you've continued your old hack - with new stuff... good luck man. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

                                        Holy. Cow.
                                        It's back! -does dance-
                                        I saw it on PHO...xD
                                        But it's baaaaaack!
                                        Nice... It looks really cool. And it appears you aren't using the Christos Rombase. I think. Anyway, it's awesome...
                                        Good luck!
