SHS: Yoshimo Friendship v5.0 is now available

Posted on Mar 22, 2024 14:22 by Ancalagon

Yoshimo Friendship has been updated to v5.0 and comes with a fix that should make the mod work better with Yoshimo Romance and EE Fixpack, as they all now share the same fix for the original game bug.


Special thanks to @skellytz for uploading the files and @CamDawg for the fix that is now included in this mod and in the romance mod.

WM: Yoshimo Romance v7.0+ available!

Posted on Mar 22, 2024 02:22 by Ancalagon

Yoshimo Romance is a mod for BG2: SoA & ToB that makes Yoshimo, an infamous bounty hunter from the original BG2 game, romanceable. Already curious, my friend? Are you already pondering what this mod includes? What kind of ToB content? Ah, that's excellent. Your curiosity is already a kind of payback.

Keep in mind that this mod does not change Yoshimo's "fate", thus post-Spellhold portion of the romance is handled differently than in most romance mods.

What's new in this version:

- Minor text improvements
- Improved compatibility with other mods
- Changed components order (main-portrait-match => main-match-portrait)
- Minor fix for one of the alternative portraits ("Improved Portrait 2")
- The new original banter fix is now changed and it works as in EE Fixpack and Yoshimo Friendship v5.0 (code by CamDawg)
- The loosened romance requirements now also require PC to have at least 13 charisma to romance Yoshimo (the component still eliminates race or gender restrictions)
- The timer between talks changed from 50 to 80 minutes to stretch the romance slightly, considering you join Yoshimo early in the game and it does not have to progress so quickly
- Tweaked dynamics with Yoshimo Friendship: if you start a romance, but tell Yoshimo you are not interested in a romantic relationship, the romance will now skip back to the friendship content (caution: some minor themes may overlap); if you do not meet the 13 charisma requirement (or gender/race requirement for the old romance check), the friendship content should kick in instead of the romance content
- Improved compatibility for oBG2 and improved dreamy Candlekeep area by Acifer (v7.01)

WM: Bethany IWDEE NPC and something extra!

Posted on Mar 14, 2024 00:32 by Ancalagon

There is a new mod at Weasel Mods! It's Bethany and she hates cold!

The mod adds a new companion, Bethany Vivielle Helena Corthala, a town medium (shaman kit) who always wanted to be a hat-maker. However, she has an ability to see the dead and it's really hard to be a fashion expert, attend all these social events, and show everyone how great you can be when you are haunted by the dead. So, she could use a little distraction and... fame, because it can be quite useful for someone who wants to open her own business when it's all over.

Bethany can join the party right after you start a new game, and she can be found in Easthaven. She comes with a friendship, some items, interjections, and a mini-quest later in the game.


That's not all, though! Everyone who would like to try the new kit on BG(2)EE may be happy to hear that the kit may also be installed using Will of the Wisp mod. Version 3.0 also comes with some better IWDEE compatibility. No worries, though, as both Will of the Wisp and Bethany may detect each other and the kit won't be installed twice.


Special thanks to @morpheus562 who helped with both Bethany and the Will of the Wisp update.
