Hi there, I recently decided to replay BG2. God I missed this game, they really don't make em like this any more. I've been downloading other mods(Can't think of the names offhand but a few different NPC mods, the tweak pack, a few sidequest mods) and I've enjoyed how different they can make the game. I'm not entirely sure what the Big Picture does though. Does it actually add anything to the game? I get the impression that using the Big Picture will let me install a bunch of mods at once but I'm already kinda doing that. And after I install the Big Picture, do I need to personally go through and find each of the mods I want to install or do they come with the Big Picture?

Right now it's mostly a AI enhancement mod with the popular Ascension mod as a optional componet.
At this point, I'm not really doing much Baldur's Gate related. More focused on Skyrim modding and the Born of Legend tabletop roleplaying game. Don't expect much activity here.

Hey, Seager. Your heading for this thread starts: "Stupid question but...."
There are NO stupid questions about installing or using mods offered through SHS. If you're not sure about anything in this respect, asking is the obvious, sensible and acceptable thing to do. :clap:
Some people may urge you to look for information about a mod on this site before you post a question. That's not always easy. There is such a huge amount of helpful info on SHS that it can be a challenge to find exactly what you're looking for.
I did battle with monsters, and they became me, and when I gazed into the abyss, the abyss looked away shyly.
See, it helps not to believe all the stuff that philosophers spout.
