BG1 Unfinished Business ("BG1UB") is a mod designed to restore many of the cut items, quests, and encounters from the original Baldur's Gate game's final release, as well as try to tie up some of the "loose ends."https://github.com/AstroBryGuy/bg1ub/releases/latest
Note: Some of the BG1UB components are blocked from installing, as they are included or superceded by BGEE. Here is a list of components that can be installed on BGEE:
Ice Island Level Two Restoration

Finishable Kagain Caravan Quest****
Coran and the Wyverns*
Kivan and Tazok****

***Chapter 6 Dialog Restorations
*Superceded in BGEE v2.x
**Most of this component is already included in BGEE.
***New component for v15
****Superceded in BGEE v2.5+
NOTE: if you're installing both BG1UB and BG1NPC, BG1NPC has its own versions of the following components: Finishable Kagain Caravan Quest, Coran and the Wyverns, Kivan and Tazok, Branwen and Tranzig. If you install BG1UB first, do NOT install these components since BG1NPC does not detect BG1UB. If you install BG1UB after BG1NPC, it will detect BG1NPC and skip these components.
Also, Northern Tales of the Sword Coast and Jarl's Adventure Pack contain alternate restorations of Nim Furlwing and Svlast. BG1UB will skip those components if those other mods' components are present.
