I came late to the party with SoD but I have (as you some of you may have noticed) become a bit obsessed with it. Parts of the game I think are great, while others I find extremely frustrating. However, I am very glad it exists and I think it is important in that it keeps the Baldur's Gate flag flying.
Now I know nothing about modding but I thought it would be interesting to know what mods for the game people would like to see? Don't worry about what is possible or probable. This is a Wish List so wish away.
Here's my list:IMOEN JOINS THE PARTY
A mod to make Imoen a joinable NPC. She can either join you right from the start or after she recovers from being poisoned. (Someone please make this one!)IMOEN TO THE RESCUE
A smaller mod where Imoen rather than a hired thug breaks you out of jail. ALL MY TRIALS ARE OVER
The game ends when you emerge from Avernus (admittedly you can already do this by exporting your character at that point). However, you are told that you have to leave Baldur's Gate because the masses are against you. They don't regard you as a hero for defeating Caelar Argent - they fear you because you went into Hell and came out unscathed (and no doubt various political factions are finding a way to fan the flames). You leave in the dead of night to avoid being attacked by an angry mob.HOODED MAN BE GONE!
Much as I like David Warner's voice acting I think we hear far too much of him in SoD and we see far too much of the Hooded Man (who seems to turn up being portentous every five minutes). This mod would remove the Hooded Man completely (or almost completely) from the game. He would have no direct dealings with the CHARNAME (who shouldn't meet Ireniucs until BG2). This Mod would of course mean that there would be no murder of Skie so it would have to be used in conjunction with All My Trials Are Over.THE HOLLYWOOD ENDING
This is something I outlined here: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/66131/sod-what-ending-were-you-hoping-for-spoilers
Basically you get to play out the moment when you are ambushed by Irenicus's minions.POOR ROHMA
This is really a BG2 mod rather than an SoD one. If you were romancing Schael Corwin and she died to save you then once you have established a stronghold you can come back to Baldur's Gate and adopt her orphaned daughter Rohma.
Anyway, that's my Wish List. Feel free to add or detract.
