One of the things that has always irked me about BG2 and IWD in comparison with BG1 (and, consequently, is the reason that I play the former much less often than the latter) is the balance of the gameplay, which I feel forces you to abuse the rest button in order to keep getting back healing spells so that you can heal your party members. To me, this undermines the immersion and RP aspect of the game, as it can force you to rest in unlikely areas and/or situations, such as in the heart of a dungeon or when you're supposedly racing against time to get something done. (By contrast, BG1 was a much slower-paced game with more interspersed enemy encounters and less emphasis on extended dungeon crawls, which enables you to go much longer and farther without needing to rest.)
I think BG2 and especially IWD would've benefited from a mechanic similar to more modern RPGs, such as Dragon Age, Pillars, etc., in which your characters naturally heal. So my request is, IF it's somehow doable (and I have no idea whether it is), perhaps one of the many kind people on this forum could create a mod for BG2:EE and IWD:EE that enables ALL of your party members to regenerate 1 HP per round, in the manner of characters that have 20+ con or are under the effects of the War Chant of the Sith bard song.
Thanks very much in advance to anyone that offers a reply or assistance on this.
