Has anybody done something like Ease-of-use?

    I just figured out how to increase the number of items such as arrows or potions that can be stacked by editing a 2DA file, and made it work in both NWN1 and NWN2 (2 separate files, not one file that I stick in both games).

    I'm wondering if anybody else has done this, or if I should try to submit the files to SP with a text file saying "stick this in your override folder"?

    Basically, I'm replicating one of the main functions of the ease-of-use mod for the Infinity Engine games. Is there an equivalent?


    I dislike inventory management, even if it is handled a bit better in NWN than it was in Baldur's Gate I.

    Isn't the default size 99?

    Making the change itself is simple enough - just edit the baseitems.2da in the Stacking column and shove the new 2da in your overrides (don't replace the original).

    You can set other items to stack as well, if you want to further minimise inventory management.

    The default is indeed 99 for arrows and other projectiles from a launcher, 50 for thrown weapons. It's really easy in NWN2 with the toolset, but not as easy to find & edit the 2da in NWN1. I was wondering if anyone had done this, or if it would make things easier if I uploaded the files.
