G3: IWDification Release Candidate 1 Now Available

Posted on Jul 26, 2021 00:22 by Ancalagon

Release Candidate 1 for IWDification has been released! IWDification is a mod to bring some of the elements of Icewind Dale into the Baldur's Gate series of games. A lot of this project is based upon the work of the discontinued IWD-in-BG2 conversion project, which later formed the backbone of IWDEE.

This new version has five new components (three IWD Class Updates for Druid, Paladin, and Thieves respectively; Expanded Polymorph Self Options; and Expanded Portrait Icons), and the imported IWD spells and bard songs have been pulled from the latest IWDEE 2.6 patch. This version is designated as a Release Candidate (as opposed to the previous betas) as the mod is more or less feature-complete and now just needs some real-world testing.

SHS: Saradas Magic for BG2 updated to v2.0.0

Posted on Jul 23, 2021 23:52 by Ancalagon

Spellhold Studios

Saradas Magic for BG2 has been updated to v2.0.0 and is now available with macOS and Linux support.

This mod introduces a new NPC, Saradas the archmage, who interacts in various ways with the Bhaalspawn's group. In Shadows of Amn, he is a non-playable NPC that offers many services to the Bhaalspawn's group. You can find him in the temple of Lathander, in the Temple District of Athkatla. In addition to having several exclusive dialogues that take place as the plot takes shape, his store is worth the visit.

In addition, Saradas is an artifacts collector. If you find any ancient artifact, you can bring it to him, and he will enchant it for you, granting magic properties to the item.

In Throne of Bhaal Saradas is finally a recruitable NPC! You can summon him through the Fate Spirit in your pocket plane. He is a human Priest of Lathander dual-classed to Mage.

Version 2.0.0 offers a backward native classic BG2:ToB compatibility, is EET compatible, and includes many fixes.

SHS: Minsc Friendship updated to v1.3 with Spanish...

Posted on Jul 20, 2021 23:32 by Ancalagon

Spellhold Studios

Minsc Friendship has been updated to v1.3.

One of the things many find sorely lacking in the Bioware NPCs are the more complex relationships presented by modern NPC mods--especially in regards to "*friendships*", the relationships NPCs have with the PC when not romancing them.

This mod adds a series of dialogues with Minsc.

Version 1.3 comes with a Spanish translation by Magis365 and minor improvements.

Posted on Jul 19, 2021 11:12 by Ancalagon

Spellhold Studios

IEP Extended Banters has been updated to v5.8.

The goal of this mod is to ensure that each Bioware NPC gets their fair share of banters with each other. We also intend to expand on friendships and relationships between the various NPCs; the friendship between Mazzy and Aerie, for example, or the peculiar relationship between Jaheira and Viconia. Currently, the mod includes banters mainly for Shadows of Amn, with two for ToB (between Minsc and Aerie).

Version 5.8 comes with a Spanish translation by Magis365 and minor improvements.

G3: Yoshimo's Remorse v3.0 Released

Posted on Jul 15, 2021 22:22 by Ancalagon

Was the event at the Asylum truly the ending to Yoshimo's adventures with the Bhaalspawn? Is there simply no way to redeem himself?

Yoshimo's Remorse is a mod for BG2:ToB that makes Yoshimo a playable character in Throne of Bhaal. However, he is not what you expect him to be... Prepare yourself for new adventures and talks with the infamous bounty hunter, a tormented soul that was left with nothing but regrets. Listen to him as this may be his last chance to find peace.

v3.0 fixes a number of issues from the previous release.

  • Faldorn should correctly banter with Kagain.
  • Halbazzer's dialogue for upgrading the armor should not block his dialogue.
  • "Read Gorion's letter" will also trigger in Candlekeep Catacombs.
  • "KnowBhaal" variable will only set after letter was read aloud if Gorion's letter is in party's inventory.
  • Journal entry for Garrick's quest should close properly for all language versions.
  • EET: Tana'ri should be copied to override.
  • Compatibility with Shades of the Sword Coast: Bentley will only react to Eldoth if he can see him.
  • revised Ajantis' shield colors and BAMs from Sir Kill.
  • corrected entry for "Beregost_House08_L2" in cmpvars.tpa.
  • Russian version now uses setup.tra out of English language folder.
  • added check to forbid installation after EET_End.
  • Updated bg1npc.ini with regard to install order syntax.

Posted on Jul 14, 2021 10:12 by Ancalagon

This mod expands Coran's Friendship talk sequence, adding up to eighteen (18) new banters with the protagonist (and one potential comment by Garrick) for a player character who is not in an active romance with him. If you have The BG1 NPC Project installed, they begin playing after the last regular friendship talk. If the player started and interrupted Coran's The BG1 NPC Project romance, the friendship sequence should initiate after that. If you do not have The BG1 NPC Project installed, they become available immediately.

Version 5.1

  • use UTF8 variant of HANDLE_CHARSETS function
  • replace multi-line comments with single-line comments
  • update metadata
  • update dynamic install order
  • update readme
  • Packaging: Added support for .iemod packages via Infinity Auto Packager

Version 12 adds a new Russian translation, courtesy of stn, and adds Project Infinity integration.

v12 changelog

  • Added Russian translation, courtesy of stn
  • PI integration
  • Better area storage and decompression routine (thanks argent77)
