Version 2.0.2is up! A big thank you to Tresset and everyone else that took time out of their day to provide me with great feedback on issues in the last release!
What this mod does:
Imports more Siege of Dragonspear items into logical (to me at least) locations in BG2:EE during the Shadows of Amn campaign. They are attainable in a variety of ways – quest rewards, drops from enemies killed, shops, and containers.
Includes an optional component to force all import-able SoD items to be present in their normal locations. Since the Voidsword +3 and Voidhammer +3 are mutually exclusive, a choice is given for which to import. I included this component since many players (myself included) have had trouble with these items not importing into BG2:EE properly.
Adds upgrade options for the majority of the imported SoD items via Cromwell and Cespenar. All recipes are on both, so the player should not run into any issues upgrading items. Many of these new recipes require existing upgrade components within the game, keeping in the spirit of having to choose one upgrade over another for strategizing and replay-ability. In addition, I have also created a few entirely new upgrade components to fit with the theme for some of the upgraded items. I included an upgrade path for one importable item from BG1 as well, since I felt it deserved a future in BG2.
Adalon now drops silver scales, correcting what I felt was an oversight. (These scales are used in some of the new upgrades.)
Saladrex now drops red scales, correcting what I felt was an oversight.
Adds green and black scales to the Green and Black dragons in the game.
Adds a few new component items for use in the new upgrade recipes on Cromwell and Cespenar.
Imports Helm of Opposition from BG1 - simply because it's fun, and if you know how to use it, it can be very useful.
Includes an optional component to change Cromwell's equipment to something more in-line with his skills as a forger of highly magical items.
Includes several new wizard and priest spells, placed in locations throughout the campaigns.
Includes alternate completion and upgrade path for the human flesh armor.
Includes upgrade paths for a two importable weapons from Baldur's Gate:EE
Optional Component allow for choice of items imported from BG1.
Optional Component for updating names/appearances of existing dragonscale items to be more consistent.
Optional Components for cosmetically enhancing existing items and on-hit effects.
Adds new options for armors, helms, and shields that can be created from all existing dragon scales.
Imports many items from Icewind Dale and places them in thoughtful locations throughout the game.
Imports new spells and Icewind Dale items into Baldur's Gate 1 Enhanced Edition.
Randomization of some item/spell drops to add replayability.
All of the upgrades were created with balance in mind, and most have unique effects to keep things fun and fresh.
