Hi all,

 

Not sure it is the right place to post it but anyway.

 

Does anybody tried the Breagar NPC mod? 

 

So far, it is a nice mod as far as you can translate the remaining German parts of it.

 

There is a quest given by the "Silberne Zwergin" (silver she-dwarf ?)  according to which I am supposed to kill a giant in the Cloudpeaks.

 

I've been to the specific map called Cloudpeaks (where the Lena and Samuel quest takes place)  but I couldn't find him.

 

So, if anybody has already completed the quest could he/she be kind enough to give me some clues?

 

Thanks a lot

It is the area west of the Nashkel mines where you find Albert and his dog. You find the giant on the southern edge of the mountain that covers the middle of the map. (Cloudpeaks is that whole southern region on the border to Amn, the naming of that one single area always was a little misleading,)

 

And, yes, it is a pretty unique mod, I polished my little german with it and played it in BGT. I always felt sad that it was not translated or made compatible with EET...

Roxanne, you are my savior as always.

 

 

The name "Wolkenspitze" was a bit misleading indeed given that Cloudpeaks is a whole region rather than a specific map with a bit restrictive name.

 

Turning the mod into an EET-playable version  wouldn't be a waste of time for sure. 

 

I have had no trouble so for grabbing the gist of the story or the quests.

 

Thanks a lot once more

There is an EET version in testing but it has some issues still. I hope I can fix them soon beginning of next year. Link to download: https://kerzenburg.b...ead.php?t=43850

Good to hear. If I remember well, Braegar was (one of) the first (?) continuous mod NPCs back in BGT.

He has some prequisites for EET - still I know from Sandrah that it is some work to convert even such an NPC to EET. What probably makes him difficult is that the BG1 part installed right there as the mod was constructed to work also on the separated games.

Good news for sure.

 

 

By the way, is there any walkthrough for the mod (even in German)?

On the downloads site from Kerzennburg forums is a walkthrough for the 5.x version of Breagar that is a bit different content wise as far as I know, I don't know of and uptodate walkthrough, unfortunately. One of the glitches of the EET version is that Breagar does not get spawned in ID, ahem... And also, basic content for SOD needs to be added - generic reactions at the appropriate places and the transition from one camp to another in case he is not in party etc. I don't think this was all considered by White Agnus yet. If Breagar is in party and cheated into ID, the EET version is quite stable.

Braegar's transition in BGT to BG2 was quite different compared with what is needed in EET > he was moved by the Belt dialogue prior to the actual BGT transition (at least in the version I once studied) and his inventory was dropped into the dungeon where he waited (the room with the 2 golems). It was complex due to his artificial arm as an inventory item. EET may just use MoveGlobal here, with a script for EET vs BG2-standalone alternatives

As for SoD, it makes sense to add him there, even if the dwarven quest may challange some creative addon for him? All versions I know of were pre-SoD..

A late thank you for both of you.

 

I had been away for sometimes.

 

I wish you an Happy New Year.

Hi jastey and Roxanne.

 

It appears that I have to register to the kerzenburg forums if i have to have access to the walkthrough.

Anyway, I found the ogre and killed it. Is there anything else expected in BG1 with this great mod?

I installed this along with most every mod available in BWS all at once. I saw Breagar in Candledeep who gave me a brief fetch quest. His dialogue is in English in my English install, but the quest and journal entry was in German.
Nihilism makes me smile.

No bug - it is not yet 100% translated. Since German is the original language, the game reverts to it when no English text is available for a string. It is indicated in BWS and EET compatibility list. Translation is worked on.

Breagar has basic SoD content and should transition into the BGII part of EET fine. Unfortunately, BeamDog made several changes to game ressources with the 2.5 patch so the mod is not officially supporting SoD 2.5. For example, his reaction to Thrix might be broken or he could interject at wrong places, apart from that it should work.
