File Name: PnP Free Action v2
File Submitter: Miloch
File Submitted: 07 Feb 2010
File Updated: 07 Feb 2010
File Category: Miscellaneous Released Mods

PnP Free Action

This component ensures Free Action does not cancel or prevent movement bonuses - it only negates penalties such as Hold, Web, Entangle, Grease, stunning, etc. Among other things, this means you can now equip Boots of Speed and the Ring of Free Action to gain the benefits of both, as per PnP descriptions. It also fixes various bugs and inconsistencies related to Free Action, Haste and Slow in both unmodded and modded resources (creatures, items and spells).

Changes in v2 (7 Feb 2010):
- Spell-patching macros will now correctly set the target (typically to whomever the spell is cast upon) regardless of whether mods like Spell Revisions set it incorrectly (fixing a bug in Remove Paralysis when both are installed)
- Description-updating component is now optional
- Patched a few items more recent mods have added
- Added German, Italian, Spanish and Russian translations

Changes in v1 Beta (31 July 2008):
- Creatures cannot be hindered by Free Action spells or items; they can only be helped by them.
- Items and spells with movement bonuses will not be hindered by Free Action spells or items.
- Items and spells that grant movement bonuses display the Haste icon (or Improved Haste if relevant).
- Items and spells with Free Action effects do not hinder movement bonuses and protect against all effects limiting movement.
- Items and spells that apply movement penalties display the Slow icon.
- Items and spells changed so that Haste and Slow icons do not cancel each other. The game engine allows you to be slowed and hasted at the same time. If one state wears off first, you are left with the remaining state, and therefore, the icon should remain as well.
- Relevant item and spell descriptions updated accordingly (Boots of Speed, Ring of Free Action, Potion of Freedom, Remove Paralysis, Free Action, Slow, Haste and Improved Haste).

I uploaded the update properly so it generated a new topic here. I suppose that could be merged with this one. Might be cleaner just to put new comments in that topic, but the mod references this one for error reports etc.

just to confirm (i've repeatedly learned the hard way how easy it is to dig around for hours without being able to confirm something, so sorry for not taking that time out) - is this still discrete/unique? (in the sense of not [yet] being made a part of any fix/tweak-packs)

It is still its own mod, yes. In theory, something like Item Revisions or Spell Revisions could've slurped it up, but last I checked, they did not correct mod-added items or spells, and this mod does.

This Not Usability Is a PnP rule too?... Sorry I don't know about the rules at all.

The wizard slayer kit cannot use any magic items except weapons and armour as per the game description. This restriction was already there - the Game Text Update just adds it to the description. Many people think this is silly though, since we already know wizard slayers can't use most magic items Posted Image.

I marked "limits" because it is not the same as "improves". Could we consider Haste/Improved Haste a limitation?

Not really, but that's the old description - I clarified it in the new description.

I agree with that, although, who wants to cancel a Haste/Improved Haste ability?

The problem with the free action opcode is that it restores the movement rate to normal, thus canceling Haste spells. This is mostly a good thing, since there are negative modifiers we want to remove with it. I could try removing it from the spell, like I've done for the free action items, and just remove specific effects like Web etc., but we might miss some things we want to cancel (Slow being one, for example). It's sort of a double-edged sword, but like I said, since it won't affect items and since you can still get hasted after casting free action, I think it's best this way.

Maybe it is interesting to add the description of this Equpped Ability to other items with Free Action like BLUN30 and SPER12.

Well they both just say they give Free Action, so I think someone can look at the spell or the ring to see the specifics Posted Image. Also both descriptions for those items are rather long already.

I suppouse that it should be installed AFTER Fixpack, although I don't know about the alchemy of WeiDU and it could be done in any moment.

Yes, it will need to be installed after Fixpack, like most mods. Otherwise, the Fixpack will just re-add effects this has gotten rid of, and also the Game Text Update will overwrite the changed descriptions.

One thing the Fixpack did do which I'm keeping (or adding if it's not there) is stun cure and protection. There is some basis for that, as the PnP Free Action description says it negates or prevents paralysis, and Remove Paralysis already cures stun. Plus, even before modding, the spell says the recipient becomes immune to *anything* that limits his movement in both BG1 and BG2.


The kit states you can't USE magic items, so I interpret it that you can WEAR them. A Wizard Slayer then should be allowed to wear a Ring of Protection for example (which is ARMOR).

Not sure why it was necessary to necro this thread to bring that up, but this mod does nothing with item usabilities. By default in the unmodded game, wizard slayers can't use (and yes, use also means wear) most magic items, including rings of protection, clearly by design.

Is this mod usable by the Enhanced Editions and is it Mac compatible? It's been bugging me to no end to have Keldorn lagging the others in combat and I'd really like to be able to fix that.

I installed the mod for BG2EE and it worked as intended. Keldorn have both his armor and boots of speed on enjoying full benefits of Haste and free action. Also the boots stack with the ring of free action, Jaheira is hasted while using Ixil's Spike.. I didn't encounter any bugs so far. Maybe the mod just needs to be updated to WeiDu 236 to be fully compatible.

I'm having a small problem with this mod. I have an item that gives:

 

movement rate bonus

immunity to web, grease and entangle

(total 8 effects in NI)

 

This mod adds immunity also to stun, hold and slow, something I didn't want (total 68 effects in NI)

To make things worse, SCS also modifies the item for some reason, with components 1000 "Initialise mod" and 5900 "Initialise AI components", bringing the total effects to 106 (many of which are labelled as 'unknown' in NI).

 

The same happens with items like Spider's Bane, that should give immunity to web only, instead it gains full free action properties. Am I missing something?

I recommend that this mod not be used with EE until it can be verified as compatible.  I have it installed on BG2:EE and I am experiencing severe bugs with slow spells and effects.  Most of the slow effects I have had cast at me have not worked properly and I have experienced some parts of the spells or effects becoming permanent.  This is easily seen by resting, saving the game, then looking at the save in EEKeeper under the effects tab.  I have seen this happen with SPIN977 (Golem Slow) and SPWI312 (Wizard Slow).  This isn't just a nuisance, because these bugged effects delete and interfere with other effects, especially local variables that keep track of banters and romances, which leads to dialogs repeating and romances starting over.  These are just the problems that I have become aware of early in the game doing Irenicus' dungeon and the easy Athkatla quests. 

 

I did some experimenting and was able to fix the nearly game breaking bugs that the golem slow spell was causing by disabling the override version of SPIN977, which forces the game to use the vanilla version.  Looking at the date created and date modified time stamps on the SPIN977.spl in the override folder shows that PNP Free Action was the last and probably the only mod that changed the file.

I have started playing BG2 again recently, however I was unable to download PnP Free Action during the installation due to SHS downtime. Thus, I have skipped it. Can I safely install it now or would it be a better idea to do a full reinstall and maybe even start a new game? I'm sorry if it sounds like a newbie question, but I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to BG modding ^^' I'd like to avoid any possible compatibility issues if possible.

 

I'm playing classic (not EE) BG2 with ToB. Here's a list of mods I have installed (I'm using Polish translations if possible, since BG2 is one of the few games I enjoy playing in my native language):

 

  • Ascension
  • Oversight
  • BG2 Fixpack
  • Tower of Deception
  • Bag Bonus
  • Improved Horns
  • A Mod for the Orderly
  • Weimer's Item Upgrade
  • Banter Packs
  • Edwin Romance
  • Nathaniel
  • Unfinished Business
  • Ding0's Quest Pack
  • Tactics
  • PnP Celestials
  • Crossmod Banter Pack
  • Wildmage Additions
  • Teleport Spell
  • Dungeon-Be-Gone
  • NPC Kitpack
  • BG2 Tweak Pack
  • Ding0's Tweak Pack
  • Level 1 NPCs
  • Widescreen Mod

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Just a note of compatibility that should be in the readme.

 

Pnp FA set the durations to vanilla times (1t+1r/lvl).   So when installing after something that changes duration, such as Spell Revisions, Pnp FA will reset the duration without changing the text description.

Thanks for the report.  Edit:  PnP Free Action has a component (#50) that updates spell and item descriptions, but this is marked as conflicting with Spell Revisions.
