    Hi, so I was browsing my Pokemon Emerald in Advance Map, and I noticed all of the areas from Kanto included in the list of areas. I then got the idea to try and add the Sevii Islands from Fire Red and Leaf Green into the map (connecting through the port in Lilycove). Is it at all possible to even do this? I was thinking to either 1 - just completely copy/paste everything, then look at the similarities between Vermillion's port scripts in FR/LG and Lilycove's scripts in Emerald, then just add in what I need, or 2 - do everything from scratch in Emerald, and only copy the map data over. Would that even work? I'm quite new when it comes to working with roms, so this is basically foreign to me at the moment.
