File Name: BG1 Level Cap Reinstator (BLCR) for BGT v1.0
File Submitter: Adul
File Submitted: 18 Feb 2010
File Updated: 23 Feb 2010
File Category: Miscellaneous Released Mods

BLCR is a small mod for Baldur's Gate Trilogy that reinstates the original experience cap of Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast.

After installing this mod, your experience points will initially be limited to 161 000 XP. This limitation only applies to the Baldur's Gate 1 part of the game, and you will be free to advance further after being transitioned to the Baldur's Gate 2 part.

The limitation affects all six party members.

This mod extends the BALDUR.BCS game script to achieve its goal.

Known Issues:
Incorrect experience cap for dual-class characters: instead of limiting the character's total XP, BLCR will limit each class to 161000 XP individually. This only affects dual-class characters and not multi-class characters.

To explain the motives behind BLCR, it was done as a personal mod as with BGT I have always felt obligated to complete all aspects of BG1 with preferably no or few party members added in order to maximize the amount of XP I would accumulate before going over to BG2. (Yes, I'm completely under the control of my habits. :unsure:)

With BLCR, I can enjoy playing BG1 carelessly without being worried about maximizing XP. That's all, really.

And I hope that BLCR will bring joy to others as well. :)

I'm already a fan of this mod. :) Thanks for that, I don't think it's too difficult to be done and makes everything closer to original BG Saga. :)

...and apparently I completely missed adding this to the index when you posted it.

Fixed now.

Embarrassing.

I see no reason why it wouldn't be... but you might wish to avoid installing it in the Tactical install at least as the enemies are a bit on the tough side at the end parts of the BG1 game(DSotSC, NTotSC...), unless you are up for a unreal challenge.

Should be compatible with anything, really, as long as it is installed on a BGT setup. BLCR uses the BGT global variable ENDOFBG1 to determine when the XP limitation should be active.
