Default People edit, but how do you ADD?

My friend thought of a funny idea that I should add a new secret character to FF3 by adding Jesus!
I make a whole new town just for Jesus to live in, and you fight him (I already made a Jesus sprite, I just redid the Final Kefka and put in long hair and a beard, as for the character sprite I redid Setzer since he has long hair already) and when you win he joins.
Is it possible to add a town, and character? I keep searching for guides but it only talks about editing. I have 2 of the best FF3 editing programs but they can only edit, I don't think they add anything..
So is it possible to add more to the game? I'm not experienced with hex editor but I can always learn. As long as I know if addiing a sidestory to FF3 is possible otherwise it's not worth making some enemy to add in the dino-forest like what everyone else does usually.

HAHAHAHAHA.

Dude, you should just re-do the entire game so it's like some really fucked up, evil version of Final Fantasy 6. You could call it Final Fantasy 666. You could have a scene where Locke and Sabin throw a Molotov cock-tail over the gates of heaven:

LOCKE: Alright, light it!
SABIN: Okay, it's lit!
LOCKE: Throw it already, you want it to blow up in your hand?!
SABIN: Okay, okay, shit!
*KABOOOOOOOOOOM*
LOCKE: Whew! Okay, let's get the fuck out of here before God sees us!
SABIN: Pussy!

As for your question, yeah, you could add stuff if there's room where the data for the maps, lay-outs, monsters, etc. is stored, but the editor doesn't support that, and I doubt there is room...You could do some serious hacking, expand the ROM to 32Mbit, and move all the data to the extra space, and change all the pointers so it points to it and add new ones for the new shit, but that's like, hard. I mean, really hard.

It has like 600kb left I think. That should be enough right? I'm only adding very little..
Here's a picture of the Jesus sprite when you fight him:

I think JadussD is correct. You'd more than likely have to expand the rom to 32 bit and do a buncha pointer changing...it'd take a while.
P.S. Don't let the Danoz guy see you doing this.
Just kidding. Keep me posted.<img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

You have to do this. Spoof hacks are usually frowned upon but that sounds too funny to not see done.

I believe there's enough room, and who's Danoz and why should I be afraid of him?

Yes, mocking the founder of a belief system that many people base their life on, great concept there. Please at least try and keep the humor at a somewhat intelligent level.

Hehehe...this is gonna open up a whole can of worms with some of the people here.

It's still a funny idea, though. Good luck with it. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

You SHOULDN'T be afraid of him. Take a look in Backroom for some of his posts. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

Anyway, seems people are all for the idea... so how do I expand it to 32 bit since that's what I have to do it seems....There's still space left, are you sure I have to?

If it is indeed possible to add a side story, how do I do so?
