Yes.

Although, a fair warning, if you intend to play other mod besides these two, for example you'll need the BG2Fixpack if you don't have the BG2EE game, and if you use the BG2EE with SCS, the mod is not itself is not compatible with the game without community created fixes. So, you are fair better at trying to get the BWS install these AND everything else into your clean game. And if you won't use the BWS, you'll need to have to go and look up the community created "updates" the BWS automatically uses to things that's are broken and that's not going to be an easy job. This is partially because the SCS hasn't gotten an official update from January 2015 on out, which is why the BG2EE is not compatible with it, as it was released after that, and the CtB also has package that can only be fixed after it has been installed, such as if you install more than 1 mod that alters the worldmap file, you'll need to install all those mods first and then install the fix that is the Worldmap mod.

The BWS has a completely customization of mods, it also has presets, but you should make a custom choice cause you can. My advice is, read this guide on how to use the BWS. It should have everything except the mod names and their descriptions, and those are in the program itself...


Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

Definitely not.

You should use this instead:

Bg2fixpack
Check the bodies

Scs

Thanks.
You wrote I have to use the fixpack, why?
Which components of rlthe fixpack do I have to install?
And if you have a link to a good guide to mod order install, i'll be happy. Always a problem.
Abd can BWS fix the ascension-SCS problems?
Like abazigal not dying and such...

Well, the game is 15 years old, it's last update was released 14 years ago, and from that on, it has had at least 4 different fixpacks since then, of which this was updated 2014... why, cause it's available. It's integrated into the BG2EE, so that should tell you that the stuff is quality cheese.

Install order ... well the BWS will make one for you, so you don't need any. Another is the BWP .pdf file... but to use that, you'll need to read the whole 300-400 page document, understanding wholy what's said and doing the things it suggests you to do to use it manually.

 

If a fix for the problem exists, there's 98% chance it's in the BWS'es fixpack, which is installed when you make a BWS custom install. Unless you mean that there's such a problem in the latest EE Ascension beta... but that has nothing to do with the non-EE game.

Specific to SCS and Ascension, we haven't switched BWS to use the new 1.5 beta Ascension for BG2 and BGT games yet - that's on my list to try.

BiG World Fixpack (community collection of mod fixes and compatibility patches, with user-friendly cross-platform script)

 

BiG World Setup (tool to automate best-practice installation of Infinity Engine mods on Windows, with conflict analysis)

Latest version:    https://bitbucket.or.../get/master.zip
