i read a few days ago (if i read correctly and remember it correctly) that in ps: torment there are some "rats" who have a nice feature. the more rats there are the better they get, better spells and so. is that correct? never played it.
if yes, this could be implemented in bg2, too, for some neat surprises? :blink:

They are called Cranium Rats and could easily be added to BG2 if someone wanted to do so.

*Perhaps a spoiler*




Cranium rats act like one entity not unlike the Borg and I guess you would need a special story to set them in as the big assembly of CRs is very, very strong. Perhaps something like the Unseeing Eye.

The graphical side would be a pain in the arse if there are any graphics conversions to be done.

how come you always look so damn cool in every photo I see you in?!?


Speaking of modding, I listened to IER 3 yesterday, so you can have another quote for your signature: how come you sound so damn cool, as well as look it? It's unfair. Seriously.


Still a cyberjock, still hacking the matrix, still unsure of what that means.

Which leads to my question, What is the process for importing a creature from PST into BG2? Is it just a BAM file? What is normally the process of making an animated creature if I can't just copy 1 or 2 files from one game to another? I don't see any tutorial links on making new creatures, so has anyone done it?

BG2 has a rat animation already in it if I'm not mistaken, so you could always use that. There are tutorials out there for adding in new creature animations: http://members.black...et/Chevar/tutor

Thank you. The rat animation in BG2 is too small for what I want. So this should work great.
