Hi, I want to try making my own mod too and I've seen that a lot of the popular mods/hacks have level scaling, changing the value of mp regen, and removing luso as a required unit during story missions. I know you do these things through hex editing, but where can I find the offsets to change this? How does the other hacks do this?

I found things like max mp here on this forum but can't seem to find any info on how people do everything else?

Ok, so after some more digging, I realized I didn't actually find everything and have found the threads that talked about level scaling and mana regen. citricking made the leveling scaling delta patches(found on https://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=11063.120(I also uploaded them myself) and lennart had already posted the mp related hexes:

MP gained per turn
00321DC0

MP Channeling bonus
00321E30

Start with Max MP
BD180: B8 03 C4 E1
BD18C: 00 10 A0 E3
BEC44: BA 03 D5 E1

BUT, there is still something missing that I couldn't really find which was removing Luso as a required unit in missions. Please, someone tell me how to do this. I hate Luso so much. Dude, looks like an ugly tomato.

OK, I'm back at it again, and found out how to replace tomato boy. Kairestu had posted this here: https://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=12061.20, where you can find a bunch of neat hex data. All you have to do is replace the FF FF hex values.

Just in case and to compile all the answers here in this thread, here is the data:
