[v1.91] Artemius_I's House Rule Tweaks

edited July 2019 in General Modding


This mod originally began as one small dialogue convenience tweak. Then it grew to a few dialogue tweaks. Then a rule tweak. Then a few more tweaks. Eventually, it grew into a full-fledged tweak pack of its own, and continues to grow to this day. This pack includes tweaks for dialogue, rules, stats, graphics, animations and any other things that my experiments find some success with.

New racial enemies?

Better shapeshifting?

A buff to Sword and Shield style?

Whether you're looking for something in particular or just trying to shake things up a little, my house rule tweaks may have something that will interest you.

    Very convenient, especially the Brage one.

    Updated this mod with a few tweaks to gameplay elements that bugged me (or simply bugged).

    • Now renamed to House Rules. This mod will contain assorted tweaks that I've made for my own use.
    • Shoal dialogue and Neera joining tweaks removed as v2.5 patch add changes that serve the same purpose.
    • Added Vanguard Kit component
    • Added Adventurer Kit component
    • Added Increased Constitution Bonuses component
    • Added Warrior HLAs component
    • Added Good-Aligned Roleplay Options component (BG2:EE)
    • Added Cloak of Dragomir only decreases stats in daylight component (BG2:EE)

    @JuliusBorisov @semiticgod

    Please move this to General Modding as it covers more than just BG:EE now.

    if the cloak of dragomir tweak is pretty robust, i think it should be made vanilla

    There are things here I didn't even know I wanted.

    Honest question: why do +damage in addition to +thac0 for the ranged thing? I mean, regular thac0 advancement doesn't work that way. I get an idea like "this thief kit uses Fighter thac0 advancement" but I don't get the concept of extra damage. This means Imoen (if non-dual-classed) with 9 strength can do more damage with a hit from a shortbow than Minsc can do woth a hit from a mace. Which just seems weird.

    I'm lazy and C+P'ed the Archer CLAB table with Set Snares added to the last row.

    Also, purely a stylistic criticism: "Adventurer" sounds very vague for a kit that is very, very focused on missile attacks. There are already a bunch of mods that use the "Adventurer" name, and the PnP adventurer kit is very different from this. This is basically the Archer kit, so why not call it "Archer?" Or "Rogue Archer" if you want to distinguish it. (Though I see no need to distinguish it... 2E has Swashbuckler kits for both thief and fighter.) Or "Sharpshooter" or "Sniper" or "Deadshot" or something lime that?

    I'm lazy and used a kit name that's been attributed to Imoen in a prior mod kitpack.

    I love this.

    All of this.
  • ThelsThels Member Posts: 1,376
    Hmm, I always liked this mod, but now it's getting a lot of things mixed in that fit an entirely different category. Seems weird to combine in-game event tweaks with rules changes, and sounds to me like this is now two different mods squashed together into one.

    I hope it's still possible to install the old components without including the new components?
  • AionZAionZ Member Posts: 3,268

    Every component is installed individually.
  • ThelsThels Member Posts: 1,376
    Cheers! I guess it doesn't really matter then. I still really like the Dialogue Tweaks, and the BG2EE specific tweaks seem a welcome addition!

    Spell A: apply an on-hit effect that casts spell B
    Spell B: apply an effect that removes spell A targeted on self

    I also have an as of yet unused spell that does ‘apply effect on x number of attacks/once per x attacks’ that I have plans for.

    would the shapeshifting component play nice, do you think, if installed after FnP mod?

    • Merged Rashemi Berserker Minsc into House Rules
    The Hide Armor from the Gnoll Stronghold was added as well?

    PS: That armor could really reappear in BG2EE.
  • AionZAionZ Member Posts: 3,268

    It's a default feature now. I'll find some suitable place to throw it in for BG2.

    I installed the Adventurer kit for Imoen and the Vanguard kit for Khalid but they join my party kitless.

    Btw, thanks for the mod collection - this is great!
  • AionZAionZ Member Posts: 3,268

    Bad coding, fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Very cool set of tweaks! I'll definitely include this mod into my EET run when IWD-in-EET will finally be available. Do you plan to add more components? I may be interested in translating it to Polish in the future, but would rather do it when the mod will be in its final state.
