...are not supposed to be worn together, however, currently ankheg plate (plat06) and the Practical Defense (plat08) are slipping by this requirement.

I've also added a couple of items spotted by @Wisp to future-proof this for BG2EE as well.

APPEND itemexcl.2da "bruenpla 1" UNLESS bruenpla APPEND itemexcl.2da "leat06 1" UNLESS leat06 APPEND itemexcl.2da "plat06 1" UNLESS plat06 APPEND itemexcl.2da "plat08 1" UNLESS plat08

    The Ankheg plate was removed from that interdiction because its not really a magical armor.

    It's restricted in BG1 and BG2.

    Yeah I know.

    I guess you probably disagree with this because its really not a bug and it technically makes an already great armor even more powerful which brings about balance issues.

    But personally, I think the Ankheg plate should never have been considered a magical armor in the first place.

    If anything, I'm more inclined to agree with reducing the armor class of the Ankheg plate by 1 or 2 to account for its increased utility.

    Nah, if I really wanted to start a fight I'd point out how the Cloak of Balduran should be restricted, but then we'd have to delve into the pointless and arbitrary nature of the multiple protection item rules. :)

    Ankheg plate should be restricted but there are, at least, some plausible reasons for its removal.

    checking this one in now

    Potentially fixed - @CamDawg 's fix has been applied with the Ankheg Plate commented out for if we ever determine that the Ankheg is an innately magical creature.

    Lol @CamDawg, the cloak of balduran should probably be restricted :)

    Confirmed working for me
    Well, bruenpla doesn't even exist in bg1ee (it will be ok in bg2ee) - this will scare dltcep a bit.
    ankheg armor was not added because other betazoids would revolt
    The other 2 remaining items are magical, existing and added.

    Confirmed Fixed in Build 0815

    I can't test bruenpla, but leat06 and plat08 both count as magical armor and cannot be equipped at the same time as the ring of protection +1.
