I have been planning a BG:EE playthrough with a few mods that i never got round to back in the day, I know some of these may be incomplete as of yet and as such I will be waiting for the final versions (BG:EE final patch also). I have a few questions regarding these mods however and would greatly appreciate any advice any of you would be willing to impart
BG NPC Project
Rogue Rebalancing (possibly if a final ver gets released and I decide to go for a rogue)
Unfinished Business (If this ever gets ported or becomes semi-compatible?)
Question no 1:
I realise the top three mods I have listed are all G3 and as such I was wondering if SCS was balanced for IWDification (by that i mean: will the enemy NPCs utilise the new spells brought in by this mod? If not will that make the game unbalanced in favour of the player?)
I have had a look through BG2 tweaks and have seen that it can be installed in a modular format, are there any modules you would recommend avoiding for someone who wants to maintain/increase the challenge of the game whilst adding new content and general re-balancing in the spirit of PnP/DnD.
Some of them are obvious (even to me
such as the un-nerfed Bard spell progression table however the PnP spell progression table looked like a fair improvement imo)
I don't think this is the case however I feel I should double check, do any of theses mods affect the level cap in a serious way? I one day intend to carry on into BG2:EE and I enjoy the limited progression within BG1 that ties in (fairly well) to BG2 starting levels.
Are there any other mods in a similar vein I should consider? By similar I mean:
Not out of keeping with the BG feel.
Well written additional content which is seamlessly integrated.
Enjoyable for someone who enjoys a challenge.
Thanks for your time reading my hopefully not too annoying post, as I said my modding of IE games is highly limited however in the meantime I'm going to give IWD a shot with all the recommended user mods which will hopefully mean I wont need to bug you guys with technical questions
Note: apologies if this is in the wrong forum, couldn't decide between this and general modding.
