AI Encounter Enhancement BP Big Picture



Screenshots

NOW MADE COMPATIBLE WITH THE BWS INSTALLER!!!

 

MAC_OSX Support Files Included (as of v4610, experimental)

 

 

BP stands for The Big Picture. This is a compatibility mod with AI improvements that allows you to integrate most of the currently existing large mods as well as several smaller mods into one giant game. BP is an active ongoing project with the overall goal of making as many mods compatible with each other as possible.

This updates BP to BPv181, after a long wait.

 

Biggest Changes (brief):

 

1) BP now has over 70 components! The big block of all-for-one has been sub-divided into handier parts. This should allow a lot of "mix-n-match" between mods, for the mega installers.

2) BP Core is still an essential component of most of BP, but it is now merely the Detectable Spells pack and a few BP additions.

3) BP Series party AI has been removed, and will remain a seperate download package (for BGEE and BG2) until further notice

4) Code has been modernized, file overwriting all-but-eliminated.

 

Installation/Compatibility: Just extract the contents of the archive into your BG2ToB folder of choice, and double-click on Setup-BP.exe I recommend installing after SCS 1 & 2, if you actually want to play BP. You can probably choose most of your favorites from each mod, and make your install even more enjoyable. Same goes for other AI mods with lots of little slices. And there's still a "leftovers" section (generic AI/encounters) that contains all the old BP you've played for years, for those that prefer it to other choices.

 

Special Thanks to the BP Crew, for all their help in coding and testing!!! And to you, for downloading this mod...

  • v181_4610 Fixes for bugs reported in Weimer’s Tactics install
  • Tested and working on a BG2EE install
  • Fixes for blatant errors noticed in BP components while testing
  • ---Those who didn’t turn hostile when hearing a shout
  • ---Tolgerias encounter works as intended (at last)
  • ---Lavok can die (at last)
  • ---The troll in Spellhold w/ the troll head can be killed (at last)
  • A few (very few) script revisions and enhancements/cleanup
  • Other details I forgot, and didn’t record
  • 181-4602:
  • Anothwe quick hotfix for BP - BP Series. Sorry!!!
  • 181-4601:
  • Quick hotfix for BP - BP Series compatability
  • 181-4600: (Beginning of the end)
  • Cleaned up installer, deleted old unneeded files here & there
  • Worked out compatability w/ BP Series. I could install either order
  • Installs clean on BG2EE. I offer NO guarantees AT ALL, beyond this. Self-support only, be warned.
  • Updated to WeiDu v235
  • Fixed all reported bugs (or tried to)
  • Added all submitted translation updates
  • Separated encounters into BP originals, Tactics snippets, and ‘other modder’ contributions
  • 181_b4503: Some minor installer changes for all-new BWS compatibility
  • 181_b4502: Cleanup of enemy cloud detection code, fixed a glitch
  • Removed the no-longer-needed BPSeries folder & contents
  • More installer-related cleanup and optimizing. No new components.
  • 181_b4501: Massive AI overhaul, first in many years. Over 150 scripts (the main/generic AI's) affected. Smarter targeting and far better conditional checks, some new AI systems. Still retaining the slightly-random element that defines BP, but now a much more intelligent set of choices await.
  • Two New Components: Djinni's, Improved Hell Trials
  • Return of an old BP component: Kensai Ryu's Improved Brown Dragon (by request)
  • Numerous installer cleanups, some that prevented installation
  • Quick hotfix to DS package; The BP core will now install with other DS mods (such as SCS/2) in any order.
  • 181_b3011: Hotfix: updated installer to say b3011 not b3003
  • Converted all custom stats.ids entries to numerical values instead of identifiers. This insures the very best cross-platform/cross-system compatibility possible (for now).
  • 181_b3010: Major updates to DS system, now compatible with BP series. Tested with SCS, 100% install-compatible if installed *AFTER* SCS/2 core(s). (This does not include content tests, cross-mod). Set up basic parameters where SCS/2 could detect BP and use its DS install, in the future.
  • Major update to cloud detection and response system in all AI scripts using it (>200 scripts)
  • 181_b3003: Fixed installer issue w/ TDD, added German trans
  • 181_b3002: Fixed a few installer breakdown issues noted in the bug reports. Added an option for "Generic Vampires only to the Bodhi quest component
  • (to 181_b3001)
  • Too massive for listing (see Read-me file for more details)
