The intention of this hack is to be the definitive Ruby experience, adding many quality-of-life and gameplay conveniences to make the game more bearable to play in 2022.

This aims to be really close to the vanilla experience, so no modern features like PSS will be added. No extra story events or altered encounters will happen, and neither will be making getting shinnies easier.
