Hey there,

 

first of all, thx for the Mod. This is exactly what I've been looking for.

 

Quick question: I installed the Mod on a relatively fresh Save (beginning of Chapter 2, haven't met any of the EE NPCs yet). There is a Bouncer in Waukeen's promenade that is related to Neera's Quest afaik. In my Save he is still there. Is he supposed to be there or does this Mod normally remove him?

 

The bouncer guy hasn't been touched by this mod. Without Neera he will only trigger a generic line though, so there is no way to bypass him (without cheating).

Alright, thx. Was just trying to make sure the Mod is working correctly since I didn't start a completely new game after installing it.

I think you need to take another look at the script that reset's Baeloth's level in BG1. It hardly counts as a reset if he still comes in with 40k experience and all his spells.

Might I recommend amending the script to:

-get rid of every spell except two level 1 spells. I usually keep magic missile and identify when I'm resetting him in eekeeper

-maybe you can find the part of cdtweaks that determines level ups on join ("ToB style") and implement that to determine the experience he should have (otherwise, maybe give him 500. Because that's how much Edwin had the last time I picked up Baeloth. I'm the type of player that picks up my party member ASAP and then continues with the game. I know it isn't everyone's playstyle, thus my first suggestion)

-Also, the amount of spells he has "memorized" should be taken down to level 1: 5, level 2: 3, level 3: 3 (because of his ring giving him +3 spells for level 1-3)

-swap out the robe of the evil archmagi for a traveler's robe or something not so OP for a level 1. His ring can stay, since it's character-specific, even though it's OP too

-find the line in the script that determines your character has to be level 5 for him to trigger and set it to level 1

 

I don't know much about modding or I'd do this myself, so I recommend it here to someone who knows more

 

Otherwise, at least I don't have to deal with Neera guilt-tripping me because I don't want to recruit her (it's like "I'm sorry that I'm an evil party and you're annoying" XD). That alone makes this mod worth it.

The whole class-change and level-reset functionality has a couple of (minor) issues which I'll have to fix eventually. I'll look into it when I can find the time.

ok :) I just figured I'd make those suggestions. Worst thing that happened was you say "...no :p"
