I noticed that not all players know about this mod, and the old topic dedicated to it is closed. So I decided to create a new topic.
"BG1 NPCs in BG2" mod
(Author: Smiling Imp, additions - Austin & Arcanecoast Team)
This mod adds the majority of NPCs from BG1 into BG2 SoA&ToB. They have new banters and interjections and a few of them have encounters and quests as well. The mod is broken down into different components, allowing for easy mixing and matching with other mods that may also add NPCs from BG1.
Additionally, you will be able to visit a new city area, the luxurious Water Gardens, where all the rich and famous of Athkatla go to unwind.
The mod is compatible with BG2, BG2: EE, BGT and EET.
Not all NPCs have the same amount of text. Shar-Teel has the most text (over 1500 lines), Garrick (about 1200 lines), Tiax - about 1000 lines.
Coran and Safana, Xzar and Montaron have about 800 lines for each. With Montaron, the female protagonist also has the opportunity to have a romance (although, according to the author, this is more of a parody of a bad relationship than a romance in the usual sense of the word).
The other NPCs have a little less text (500-600 lines each).
In addition, the mod contains a lot (about 2000 lines) of lines of dialogue of different characters in the new area of Athkatla - Water Gardens.
There are also four components that have not been completed (Ajantis, Kivan, Xan and Dynaheir), they are separated from the main installation into a separate group.
In recent years the mod has become fully EE and EET-compatible and has been updated and expanded (with the consent of the author
) - a lot of texts have been added for Safana, Tiax, Garrick, Deekin etc. Added epilogues, new quests, the opportunity to participate in the auction in the Water Gardens area and buy rare items, and much more! The authors of the new texts are Alisia, Jericho2, Oracle, Austin, Scheele
provided invaluable help in proofreading the English text!If you find any bugs or you can write texts for this NPCs - let me know here, please, or in private messages!
I can code dialogues, but help in writing texts will be very useful to me.
For example, we need texts and ideas for the following:
- dialogues of any NPCs from BG1 with EE-NPCs (Neera, Dorn, Hexxat, Rasaad and Wilson)
- any BG1 NPCs banters or interjections
