SoD uses the new (new does not mean improved) concept to display banters between your NPCs in stringhead texts instead of conventional dialogues. These pseudo-banters can be easily overlooked and they are not stopping the game like normal dialogues (often they appear in between battles or mixed with other information).

Within the EET context, this approach separates SoD from the rest of the game where banters are done traditionally via dialogues. It disrupts the EET idea of a continuos game with continuos creatures and features.

This mod converts the major banters of the continuous NPCs during SoD into *old-style* dialogues that interrupt the game and require player interaction. About 80 longer conversations during SoD are thus restored and maybe recognised by players for the first time. Many of them deserve larger attention.

I excluded banters that were labelled *insults* (files BDIns001 - 030), they really contain only NPCs calling each other names. I also excluded banters that are only between pure SoD characters and do not involve any of the continuos NPCs.

 

In addition, the mod contains revised triggers for the banter dialogues.

 

Installation guidance:

Install the mod after all other mods which add banters to the game, i.e. right before installing EET_end.

This mod is only available for EET - only this modification allows the definition of banter files for the SoD campaign.

I like the mod but I've got a question for mod NPCs. Some of them have dialogue banters and some still have SoD style overhead texts. Your own Sandrah talks normal, no wonder. I also love Sirene but she's not covered. Is there a way to add her?

The mod only covers vanilla SoD NPCs.

 

Sandrah has *normal* dialogue banters because that is how the Sandrah mod is designed. SoD banter mod does nothing with her.

 

Sirene has overhead banters because the modder has chosen that presentation.

 

There are two ways for mods in SoD to handle this (if they care at all):

- the mod could add an option to chose the display you want. Probably easiest and best.

- the modder could just push an addon to this mod's github repository with its contents so it installs if the mod is detected.

 

There is no way that I could incorporate mod NPCs because

a) the mod owner may not like it

b) there is no way to keep things updated and synchronized if the author updates the mod

c) foreign language translations would not be covered
