    Hello everybody:

    I'm new but I've been reading this forum from 2005 or so, very good topics and a lot of useful information of the infinity engine games that are some of my favourite games. Other favs of mine are: Heroes 3, Age of Wonders 2, Disciples 2, Neverwinter Nights, Oblivion, Persona 4, Vagrant Story, Doom (old Doom) and some others. I have moded some games too, like Heroes 3 and Disciples 2, for my personal use.

    Over the years, I've been modding Infinity Games too, because they get easier the more I play, and I am not interested in the usual mods for these games. Icewind Dale 1 got the most time invested, and I'm planning on release to the community a difficulty increased mod (also includes ton of new loot, some new spells, scripts, etc. -with balance in consideration-) and I want it to be available on this excellent site if the admin allows it :)

    It was, but I always wanted something more manually crafted. At first it was only for vanilla Icewind Dale (no expansions) but the scripts and effects options were too limited. Also, Baldur's Gate saga have several mods for the "veterans", but Icewind Dale only has Auril's Bane and the revisions from Gibberlings.

    Yeah, but with the enhanced edition there are new players among us, the veterans. I only recently saw that the enhanced editions were available for consoles, but the Icewind Dale I + Planescape Torment pack was too costly for my liking. I will check again in a couple of years.

    I was doing a lot of testing for the mod, sadly, some things are not possible but I can still work without them somehow. Sir admin, can I create a topic with the "Work in Progress" in the IWD forum? I'm not from any group, so I wanted to show the things that the mod will include and some screenshots. And about the screenshots, tiny pic died :aaa:, is imgur a good site for upload images?

    I hope so ;). I have revised a lot of videos and forums about the things added in the EE, and except for the kits and some small quests and items, there is nothing like the thing I'm making. Also, there are lots of mods available (a big percent "nearly the same" from the BG2 EE) but I think they are too small to add a sense of change in gameplay elements. There is as well a guy named "Sarevok" that did a difficulty enhanced mod for the EE but it "only" took him like 3 weeks to do all.

    When the thing is finished and after I relesase it in the old override way I will try to convert it to a weidu format (:D). I'm currently checking item coloration (blue armors and bam icon's recoloring) and items on containers (more randomized jewelry, gems and scrolls). I need to kill Terikan and his undeads but they are too strong now (died a few times, not a character or two, the whole party :(:eek:) to continue to one of the best looking areas in my opinion, the exterior zone of the aquarium.

    I mean, I love them a bit more well-endowed, but whatever floats your boat, I guess. :shake:

    As safe as possible. Good thing I really didn't do much before this mess started, so it's not affecting me too badly :beer:
