Hi,

I am wondering if SOA and Worldmap 7.1 are golden as far as compatibility. Do I need this BMP from Red's topic to make things work?

I am swimming in a sea of confusion :wacko:

Thanks for any answers!

It should be covered, anyway i discovered a "conceptual incompatibility" with BGT and SoA currently, posting it in my current install thread.

Stone of Askavar should work fine for WMv7 as long as you only install the "original" travel times component. I had to make a modification to the code in the Revised component .tph so in order to use that I suppose I'll need to put out a Stone of Askavar patch... crap! Really need to figure out how to code that differently...

Thanks for clarifying erebusant! Just in case I can't wait for a patch and roll back and reinstall WMv7, will my saves still convert from revised to original travel times ?

I'm doing some updates to The Stone of Askavar, is there anything I can include in my setup files that will make it more compatible with the revised times?

I can better answer that with some basic information. I will need to do a Worldmap update to account for the code changes in the "Revised" component, and I've not yet begun SoA in my current game. The main thing I need to know is how the new areas are to be revealed? Do es the party stumble across them, do they find a travel trigger and get taken directly to the areas, or are the areas revealed by script/dialogue, and then does travel ensue?

The areas are revealed after you talk to the elf in Nashkel Carnival and accept his Stone of AsKavar quest. So it is dialog.

I've reviewed CEARWIN.dlg file. I'd recommend altering the area flags for both your new areas from 2 to 4 and create a travel link to & from each edge of AR3800 to ARS002 & ARS005. That will cover your ability to travel to either of the new areas immediately upon leaving the Carnival for the Original travel times component of Worldmap and I will make up the proper patch files to be extracted into the BP-BGT-Worldmap directory prior to installing if players wish to use the "revised" travel times component. It would be helpful, but not absolutely neccesary to have translations in the Worldmap languages as well.

Hi, I have a related question. I am installing manually BWP (want some kind of different options and mod set than predefined) and found mods that require copying from Big World Fixpack worldmap.wmp. First mod was Drizzt Saga, it requires copying worldmap.wmp to override folder for correct install. Second is Stone of Askavar.
Stone of Askavar requires copying worldmap.wmp from Fixpack folder, but there is already worldmap.wmp that modified by Drizzt Saga.

Questions
1. Should I overwrite worldmap.wmp containing in override or should I keep modified version?
2. What are consequences loosing modification in worldmap.wmp made by Drizzt Saga?

P.S. I can do experiments, but already had some troubles with two TS versions. Semi-manual reinstalling takes lots of time.
