The Old Gold v0.1
For BGT / BWP / BWS

"Jewellers and goldsmiths use the name "old gold" to define gold that has been smelted at least 400 years ago. They also refer to it as a "dwarven gold" sometimes."


File Name: The Old Gold
File Submitter: Creepin
File Submitted: 19 Dec 2017
File Category: Miscellaneous Released Mods
 
Foreword
It took me 5 months to create these 5 items, so I figured I'd release what I have so far - who knows, perhaps I'll get some bug reports or feedback while I'm working on 0.2 for the next 5 months! ^_^  Or, worst case, if I'll stop the project I believe there's some assets worth salvaging for future use. So here I present you 5 items and a promise for more ;)

Introduction
This mod is aimed to eventually add new items, spells, friends and enemies to the game, but most importantly to bring a feeling of warm and cozy nostalgia to those who know old D&D PC games. Love to these games was, in fact, what gave me inspiration to create this mod, so expect it to bring back both treasures and trinkets of the past.

Keep in mind though that this is v0.1, very much WIP, so there's only several items so far.

Installation
I plan to procure a place for the mod in BWP and, possibly, to update BWS accordingly, but that would happen when there's more content done. So far manual installation like in good old times is the only option. However the mod should install flawlessly upon BWP or BWS megamod. This way some rule tweaks done by mods installed before may possibly be ignored by the content of The Old Gold (though I'm having a hard time coming up with a single example of such), but other than that all will be fine.

Compatibility
The mod will need at least BGT (won't work on pure BG2), but will detect other mods installed and adjust accordingly content-wise. Being a compatibility fanatic, I've tried to made this mod as compatible with the rest of BWP/BWS as possible. It should work flawlessly with bare BGT or any combination of mods under BWP/BWS.

You know, if you did actually show those 5 items the mod has to offer and maybe tell us how they are available in-game, people might be more interested in testing.

Right now, all the information you give is "this mod has 5 items". Not very much to go on...

You are correct, and thanks for the hint, but then again - what surprise would that be if I did so? And what are mods for if not to be surprised a little bit (and hopefully in a pleasant way) in a game you know inside out? :) Not to mention I have already fixed a bug of compatibility with 1PP, so I would rather have not over-exposure this until 0.2, which is 60% done by now.

 

BTW, two of these are actually shown in the logo ;)

Makes sense :)
