    An interior for the Gnoll Stronghold definitely gets my vote. When I first went there, twenty years ago, I couldn't believe there was no way into the fortress and I spent hours looking for the door, convinced I must have missed it. And still, every time I go back I feel like there is something missing.

    It would be great if there was an interior and maybe a link to it via a secret passage from one of the caves.

    I remember the first time I ever played BG and got to the fortress that I was scouting around the caves thinking there might be a back door into the fortress. I'd have hidden a sally port somewhere round there if I'd designed that area.

    This. Preferably the cave with the tome, as it makes zero sense for a bunch of Xvarts to have it otherwise. Such a mod could even allow for an alternate tactic for handling the fortress, similar to how you can cut out the Firewine "maze" and get straight to the point.

    Can you get up onto that plateau near Gullykin using Dimension Door? I know there's nothing up there but whenever there's an area in a game that looks impossible to reach you have to wonder if there is anything there...

    An area I always thought was lacking is the far south east area with Samson and a load of gibberlings. Quite anticlimatic considering the trek to get there. Ok I know Dorn's quest will take evil characters there but I have the new NPCs modded out of the game so it's still mostly empty for me.

    That plateau is difficult because the gully is so deep and you can walk behind it. The way IE handles "ground" means that the land behind and below would overlap the land at the top of the plateau. You would need to put something there (like a hut, etc.) to resolve that issue - which would make said plateau pretty darn small. It is annoying, as you can't completely clear the FoW save for using clairvoyance, but I don't see a realistic way to use it for anything.
