Maybe it's about time the existing portraits get packaged as a v1 mod? If Ilmatar decides to work on it some more, there can always be a new release. (That goes for a couple other dormant or semi-dormant portrait mods out there too - you know who you are :P.)

*crickets chirping*

Yet another reason to package these portrait mods before folks go missing entirely... :ph34r:

Wow I love all the portraits, you captured all of their personality's perfectly. The only little fault I see in that is Imoen, I think she should have kind of a detached look for bg2, still kind of cheery but kind of like she's smiling only because your looking at her.

Aerie...I don't know why but I don't like it as a portrait for Aerie, it's gorgeous but I don't think it looks naive or innocent enough. I think someone suggested bigger eyes, and maybe make her a bit more elfish.

Is it wrong that I want to snog each and everyone of them. Especially Viconia...she's looking very attractive....if only I could a sandwich with her me and Edwin...hmmm..... :Tasty: ...yummy :blink: ummm I mean....they look great!!

I'm not sure if anyone already asked the question (I am sure someone may have...) but why noone ever made this a mod? I mean, if it wasn't a coincidence I would never find this thread. SHS has a place for portrait mods, so...? Staffers? I gues Ilmatar retired, but maybe someone has a clue if she mind that...
EDIT:
I may try to look for someone who can finish Ilmatar's work. Hmm?

Well as you can see only 3 posts up, K'aeloree asked Ilmatar if he could go ahead and package it and got no response, which I would expect since she's pretty much disappeared for good some time ago. I think SHS should just have a miscellaneous portrait upload the same way G3 (sort of) does. Either that or at least a thread that links all the in-progress or dead portrait mods.

I actually contacted with her and that's fine with her. When Liam is back, I will send him the proof and as well the mod, but my coding isn't "wow" so it just copies to override and I'm not sure if it can work with for example BGT... I don't know if the BGT portraits have the same file name.
If SHS has that kind of system of portrait mods, lets leave it like that. Portraits as a mod are fine for me.

Yes, it does for BG2 portraits, but if you have a "Jaheira" component (and I'd recommend making separate components for each NPC so folks can choose which they want) then you'd probably want it compatible with BG1 resources too. Same goes for Tutu. All of which is pretty easy for a "simple" portrait mod - check out the various G3 or SHS portrait mods which I think have that built in already. Also, you want to use .bmp instead of .jpg files obviously.

Actually I may not find time, but however first I have to talk about the matter with Liam, and to do that we need him back at SHS :P However, as I said, we at least know that releasing Ilmatar's portraits as a mod is fine with her. That's a small but significant progress :) Yay! :cheers:

I think making a mod of these portraits is a wonderful idea. They're great!
