I like the idea of playing Baldur's Gate from beginning to end as one continuous game so I have decided to give EET a spin. I've seen a few comments where people seem to think it is hard to install but even though I am quite clueless when it comes to anything technical I found it to be very straightforward. I'm playing on a Mac so I followed this installation guide: https://www.gibberlings3.net/forums/topic/31193-mac-install-guide-for-baldurs-gate-eet/
I also followed the instructions on this Compatibility List to make sure I installed my mods in the right order: https://rawgit.com/K4thos/EET-Compatibility-List/master/EET-Compatibility-List.html
First I downloaded a Mac Weidu Launcher: https://github.com/subtledoctor/MacOS_Weidu_Launcher
(I'm not sure this was strictly necessary because I think most mods come with a launcher attached but I found it easier to get it separately. Don't ask me what Weidu is because I have no idea)
I installed the following mods before installing EET:
BGEE Classic movies http://www.shsforums.net/topic/55573-mod-bgee-classic-movies/
(This might have been unnecessary because I have a feeling EET restores the classic movies by default)
BG1 NPC Project https://www.gibberlings3.net/mods/npcs/bg1npc/
BG1 Unfinished Business https://github.com/Pocket-Plane-Group/bg1ub/releases
I then installed EET and added the following mods:
Imoen 4 Ever
Grey the Dog
Baldur's Gate Mini Quests and Encounters
Jastey's SoD Tweak Pack
( The above are all by @jastey https://www.gibberlings3.net/profile/256-jastey/content/?type=downloads_file&change_section=1
Chatty Imoen by @AstroBryGuy
EET Tweaks https://github.com/K4thos/EET_Tweaks/releases
The Tweaks Anthology https://www.gibberlings3.net/mods/tweaks/tweaks/
Level 1 NPCs https://www.gibberlings3.net/mods/tweaks/levelonenpcs/
(this one isn't actually supported by EET but I wanted to use it to turn Imoen into a Swashbuckler and it seems to have worked okay).
So that's my set up. As I said, I found it to be very straightforward. The only really time consuming part was going through the options in the Tweaks Anthology because there are hundreds of choices to be made but that would be true whether or not you had EET installed.
So now I am ready to set forth from Candlekeep once more . . .
