Jasteys Solaufein NPC Mod for BGII (Solaufein's Rescue)

 

With this modification the game character Solaufein, drow fighter from Ust Natha, is extended to a joinable NPC. Before he can join, Solaufein has to be freed from drider chambers. This starting quest can be played independently to whether he should then join the group or not. (This is not Weimer's Solaufein NPC mod.) The mod is compatible with original BG2 (with ToB), BGT, BGII:EE, and EET.

Solaufein can also follow as a '7th party member' in case your group already consists of 6 persons. More details about this please refer to readme.

The second, optional mod component offers the possibility to give the game Solaufein in Ust Natha the mod's portrait. If you want to see this in the game, this component has to be installed after Weimer's Solaufein.

The third, optional component is for BGII and BGT: If the main component of Infinity Animations is installed, this component will install and use the drider animations for the mod.
Without this component, all driders in the mod will be displayed as drow. There is no loss in gameplay, other than it won't look as nice.
For BGII:EE and EET the animations will be included and used automatically.

The forth, optional component enables to install the alternative portrait for Solaufein.

Both portraits are from Chinasky, with many thanks!

Note concerning English version: The rescue quest can be played fully in English. The rest of the mod is still mostly in German. English version is done to 55%.

Version 1.5. comes with minor fixes. The crossmod banters with Gavin and Sir Ajantis for BGII were moved into the Crossmod Banter Pack!

 

Changes:

  • If interacting with the drider cocoons, texts will also be shown on screen (changed to DisplayStringHead)
  • Added more variable parameters to EET EET_NPC_TRANSITION (tp2 optimization, no changes ingame)
  • Added summoning for new ToB game (EET)
  • Crossmod with Ajantis and Gavin moved into Crossmod Banter Pack
  • Corrected: infer_charset -> infer_charsets
  • EE use pvrz-tis (no more black lines in areas)
  • setup-c#solaufein.tp2 renamed to c#solaufein.tp2
  • c#solaufein.ini with mod info metadata added.
