Animal Companions for Rangers and Druids in IWD:EE?

I was so sad to see that Rangers and Druids have no animal companions in IWD:EE. I know it's true to the original but still...with IWD II:EE probably never happening, this is the only game set in IWD proper and it would be wonderful to just have the same options as in BG II:EE.

This awesome mod: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/50975/mod-animal-companions-for-rangers-and-druids-for-bg1ee-sod-bg2ee-eet/p1 lets rangers and druids have nameable and leveling animal companions for BG and BG EEs, anyone want to take a stab at making it work in IWD:EE? I'd be so grateful!

    well rangers and druids are really good in IWD, so it might make the game more unbalancing implementing this

    also, the beast master i believe gets the summon animal spells at certain levels
    and the totemic druid gets the spirit animals, so they are kind of like animal companions

    so at least in the meantime you could do that

    Hey, if anyone provides me with (all) the starting area codes (or rather their .bcs script file names) I can add them to the mod.

    In the mean time you should be able to actually install the mod on IWD, you'll just have give your character the starting ability, everything else should work just fine from there on out.

    The initial ability is UBRPETA.SPL (Find Animal Companion), once a character has that one everything should work.

    DISCLAIMER: I'm assuming that IWD uses the same area flags as the BG games do, otherwise there may be further issues.

    Not quite. I never played IWD so I need someone to tell me which areas are the starting areas.

    What information do you need exactly, @Ulb ?

    The only starting area in IWDEE is Easthaven. What do you need to know about it?

    Ifyou just drop me the area script name (something like AR008.BCS) that should do it.

    Thanks, I'll add IWD compatibility and release a new version once I'm done.

    AR1006 (Easthaven, tavern) is the starting area for a normal IWD game.

    AR9100 (Lonelywood, outdoors) is the starting area for an expansion-only (HoW) game.

    In both cases, the script is the area code plus the .BSC suffix.
