Improved movement speed outside of combat

Is there a mod that can offer something similar like The Paws of the Cheetah, but only increases movement speed outside of combat? I figured that would make exploring a map with a full party much quicker without it being overpowered.

    It might be possible to do something like that with a script, but you can already use CTRL-J to move around quickly.

    You can change the frame rate in the .ini file, which speeds everything up, including combat. Autopause becomes crucial!

    It's baldur.lua , not baldur.ini since 2.0+.

    I ended up changing the frame rate, using CTRL-J and giving my entire party the Paws of the Cheetah, but still think it would be nice to only have movement speed increased outside of combat as I do enjoy slower paced combat (and CTRL-J to avoid needing to backtrack).

    Hi @CruelIntentions,

    Seems you've already got a solution, (and I'm quite late to the party!), but I hacked up a very simple mod that should make your party move as if they had Paws of the Cheetah outside of combat. Should work for all the Infinity Engine games, even the originals!

    I've attached the mod, have fun. :)

    I've tried out your mod and it works like a charm :) . Thanks! I definitely like this solution over using 6 Paws of the Cheetah which feels a bit like cheating and prevents me from using other boots and setting the frame rate to 60 which is a bit too hectic for my taste.

    I already explored most of the Sword Coast without speed enhancements :D , but this mod will be great for the rest of the saga :) .

    oooooh I didn't even realize I wanted this till i found this thread! Where in an install do you think this should fall?

    The only thing that could possibility interfere with the mod is another mod that prepends BALDUR.BCS with blocks that don't end with a Continue() statement.

    So, it should work in whatever order you want to install it in. If you want to be absolutely sure it works, I would install it after all other mods that alter scripts, (which is basically every mod ever, so install it last if you are worried about compatibility).

    @Bubb Curiously it stopped working when I got to Siege of Dragonspear. Did you try the mod with SoD?

    Inspired by your request I have also created a small tweak that allows you to move with increased speed outside of combat.

    I'm thinking of adding it to the Tweaks Anthology eventually, as it's too small to be released as a separate mod. But I can still provide a standalone version of the tweak here if you (or anyone else) is interested.

    Do these mods also increase the speed of monsters and NPCs? I like the idea of my characters moving a bit faster to speed up the game but if I can run away from everyone if I get into trouble it will feel like cheating to me.

    My version affects only regular party members (i.e. no summons, no familiars or other "companions", and no monsters or neutral creatures). Running away from enemies will probably still be as difficult as without the tweak. The speed bonus kicks in only if party is not in combat mode and no hostile creatures are in sight.

    I wouldn't mind a standalone mod that's compatible with siege of dragonspear as I'm currently playing it lol.

    I don't know if it's already possible, but another thing that would be convenient is if my entire party could switch between ranged and melee weapons using a hotkey.

    That sounds great. I would definitely use that.

    I need to make more test but your mod looks perfect. congratulations and thank you ! Imo it should be part of the tweak anthology mod

  • gorgonzolagorgonzola Member Posts: 3,678
    did not know about it, really useful.
    even if a little dangerous when the party thief is exploring an area or dungeon for traps, using the bots my thief sometimes runs into the traps and then detects them. true that an experienced player knows the location of every trap, but for new players it can be a problem.

    I forgot that SoD and ToB use different global scripts, so that's why the mod won't work in those campaigns. I would fix it, but frankly @argent77's tweak is, by default, better than mine. Uninstall my tweak and use his instead.

    A little bit of thread necromancy. Is there some edit I could do with NearInfinity to the argent77 version to make the effect apply to the whole party including summons. This tweak is really nice for fastening the pace of exploration, but at the same time it makes some Summons almost useless because they can't keep up with you as you explore through the map. Some summons don't really last more than a fight or two, but it's pretty detrimental to something like Animate Dead skeletons which last for hours. Normally you'd be able to explore a whole map with them, but with high enough speed up they can't keep up and end up being pretty useless. Another issue is that summons who are slower than your party tend to get in the way of your characters and block their path forcing them to lag down behind unless you manually move the summon aside.

    Still enjoy this and would rather play with this tweak than without it even with these issues.
