Nightfarer's (?) Item Patcher - please remove Breagar content!

15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM

Nightfarer's (?) Item Patcher adds the "droppable" flag to some of Breagar's items.
Problem is: these are Breagar's hand and/or arm implants /artificial limbs.

It doesn't make any sense to make them droppable. Moreover, it breaks the mod if Breagar doesn't have these items in the appropriate hand / shield slots at the approprriate times.

Please remove this from the item patcher. Thank you.


Northern Tales of the Sword Coast: v2.3.0 at official download site

10 July 2018 - 01:09 PM

Northern Tales of the Sword Coast (BGT, BG:EE, EET)
 
The updated mod package now available from the official download site at SHS in version 2.3.0!
 
The mod adds several quests to the BG1 part (with TotSC) to the game and is compatible with BGT, BG:EE, and EET. Some are minor encounters with no further impact, but some are larger quests that are also partly connected to each other.
One large quest is given to you by Duke Eltan (before you go to Candlekeep). One of the longest quests also starts before Candlekeep: Talk to the lady outside the Sorceror's Sundries. One quest can be started by talking to Yness in Ulgoth's Beard.

 

Version 2.3.0 comes with a lot of minor fixes and improvements (by MadeInHeaven, Dachrisma, and jastey), and also one new optional component with some of the fighting encounters formerly included in the main component.

Questions to BWS from maintenance perspective

07 May 2018 - 11:07 PM

The mods are categorized into types: for BGT-BWP there is 20 (distinguishing between e.g. BG1 NPC mods and BGII NPC mods)

For non BWP-games it's 13.

As far as I can see, it's 13 for: BGII, BGII:EE, BG:EE - but also EET.

Wouldn't it be more useful to use the 20-categories for EET, too (i.e. inside the BigWorldSetup\App\Config\BG2EE\InstallOrder.ini?)

Example: Ajantis BG1 Expansion pack is tagged "07 (NPC-Related Mods)" in both BG1EE\InstallOrder.ini and BG2EE\InstallOrder.ini, but "05 (BG1 NPC-Related Mods)" in BWP\InstallOrder.ini.

Corthala Romantique beta Download (Testers welcome)

Corthala Romantique - Valygar Romance
for BGII, BGII:EE, BGT, EET

Originally by Domi, Beyshaliban, and Caetlyn. Edits by Meira and jastey.

After a long hiatus, the mod finally hits beta 0.4!

About
Originally a part of the TeamBG mod 'Tortured Souls', the romance had a short-lived history as stand-alone part of said mod. When support for the stand-alone Valygar romance was abandoned, Beyshaliban volunteered to make it a WeiDU mod.

The original path and speed of the romance was altered and Domi wrote a lot of additional lovetalks, flirts and banters.

ToB content was added and the mod reached beta status in 2005. The SoA part was still under revision by Meira then. Aside from that, an expansion to the Sphere Quest was added. You will meet an interesting not joinable NPC, a character from Valygar's past, based on Domi's story Biographer's Notes: Valygar.

In 2018, the mod was fully recoded and revised by jastey, with Domi's blessings: After the mod going on hiatus while still in testing and under revision, it was now newly recoded and revised to make the romance flow with less bottlenecks in-game, make the banters more in-character, and also to make the development of Valygar's feelings with regard to his vows more consistent.

Content
The Mod Corthala Romantique adds a romance for female PCs (no short races) of good or neutral alignment (no chaotic neutral) or female druids. To proceed with the romance, the reputation has to be above 13. The mod also adds friendship talks for the SoA part of the game for PCs that do not fulfill the romance criteria. For ToB, all dialogues added are for romance, only. Also added are banters with other NPCs and interjections, for romance and non-romance case.

As a second, optional component, the "bathing flirt" can be installed for the romance - there was a time back then where NPCs were supposed to have at least one, romantic-encounter-like bathing flirt, "Kelsey-style". Although being a very romantic and humorous encounter, it was made an own install option because reply options and PC reactions are not always freely chosable. The content does not exceed teen rating.

The third, independently installable component introduces a quest to let the sphere be guarded or be sealed forever by a friend of Valygar, Leonora. The quest can be installed and played without the romance.
The quest to close the sphere might trigger while the sphere quests are still running. Just tell Valygar that it has to wait.

Compatibility and possible conflicts
  • The mod uses BCaesar's RestCheck to ensure rest dialogues do not fire at the same rest as BioWare/BeamDog ones.[/*]
  • NPC-Strongholds: The quest to close the sphere might trigger while the sphere quests are still running. Just tell Valygar that it has to wait.[/*]
  • Extended Sphere Quest / Mage Stronghold Mod: The quest to close the sphere might trigger while the sphere quests are still running. Just tell Valygar that it has to wait.[/*]
  • Romantic Ecounters, components "Valygar Romance, by Kulyok" and "Valygar Romance ToB, by Kulyok": technically, the two mods are compatible. Content-wise, I don't think it's a good idea to have two romances play together, as they paint slightly different pictures of Valygar and might make him sound like he has a bad short-time memory.[/*]
  • Tortured Souls: the mod is not compatible with the mod Tortured Souls that still contains an own version of the Valygar romance.[/*]
  • Unfinished Business, component Suna Seni/Valygar Relationship: install this UB component first to make those two mods compatible. Note: The current love affair of Valygar and Suna Seni will be tuned down to a past love. For this, three lines of UB's Valygar's dialogue are tuned down so he no longer calls Suna his love. Additionally, there will be a follow-up dialogue in case of PC-Valygar romance.

If you are interested, please take the mod along in your game and let me know if you encounter any problems!
