edited August 2018 in BG:EE Mods
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Note: Some of the BG1UB components are blocked from installing, as they are included or superceded by BGEE.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
The Mysterious Vial****
Finishable Kagain Caravan Quest****
Coran and the Wyverns*
Kivan and Tazok****
Branwen and Tranzig****
Place Entar Silvershield in His Home****
Scar and the Sashenstar's Daughter
Quoningar, the Cleric
Shilo Chen and the Ogre-Magi
Edie, the Merchant League Applicant
Creature Corrections
Creature Restorations
Creature Name Restorations
Minor Dialog Restorations
Store, Tavern and Inn Fixes and Restorations**
Item Corrections and Restorations
Prism and the Emeralds Tweak****
Duke Eltan in the Harbor Master's Building
Nim Furlwing Encounter
Svlast the Fallen Paladin
Mal-Kalen the Ulcaster Revenant
***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*Superceded in BGEE v2.x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****Superceded in BGEE v2.5+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.

    • The Mysterious Vial
    • Finishable Kagain Caravan Quest

    @AstroBryGuy: Just out of curiosity, what's the difference between the Kagain and Branwen components here and the ones included in BG1NPC? Which version would you recommend?

  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,414
    edited January 2015
    @shawne - BG1NPC's versions are "bigger" (well, Branwen's not so much, but Kagain's and Kivan's are). BG1UB's versions of these components are generally minimal. It tries to wrap up loose ends using already existing but unused dialogue as much as possible. BG1NPC generally takes a much freer hand in expanding these quests with new dialogue.

    Take for example Kagain's quest (don't read if you don't want spoilers!)

    * In vanilla, you take him one map north of Beregost and he gives up his quest.
    * With BG1UB, there's a body placed at one of the caravan ambush sites. When Kagain sees it, he recognizes the body as that of Silvershield's son (it uses an existing bit of dialogue in KAGAIJ.DLG that is not used in vanilla). The quest is now over. Not much added, but you at least get the satisfaction that Kagain found the caravan.
    * With BG1NPC, there's a group of bandits at the caravan that you have to kill. Then, you find Silvershield's son's body and take the boy's brooch back to his family.


    One thing that I forgot to mention above - if you're installing both BG1UB and BG1NPC, you basically need to go with BG1NPC's versions. The way BG1NPC is coded, it does not detect BG1UB and skip the relevant components (and unlike BG1UB, they are not separate components). If you install BG1UB after BG1NPC, it will detect BG1NPC and skip the components that conflict.

    I would hug you if I could!

    It may be a long stretch, but is there any chance to successfully restore other cut content? From I can glean from old posts, some items like Mal-Kalen, the Ulcaster Revenant and Svlast, the Fallen Paladin were never restored.

    @Jace - Thanks! I hadn't looked at doing anything with "unfinished Unfinished Business" yet.


    Taking a quick look, Mal-Kalen looks promising. The dialog has a few too many circular references, but it could be straightened out without too much trouble, I think.

    Svlast doesn't have any dialog from the PC yet. So, a little more work, but doable for a quick encounter, I think. The real issue is that Firewine is already pretty full with kobolds, the other undead knights, Lendarn, and the Ogre Mage. I think he'd need to be moved somewhere else. There's just no room in Firewine.


    I'll take a closer look at it after fully testing the existing components with BGEE.

    EDIT: It looks like those components are restored in @Jarl's Adventure Pack. Only for BGT now, but probably worth a look to see if any work is being done on bringing it to BGEE.

    COOL

    Now we only need this:



    Hello all,

    A final version of BG1 NPC Project vXX with BGEE compatibility is available over at ----.

    I would rather say "Now we only need fixed all bugs and implemented improvements from BG2:EE + maybe some more polishment (*cough*missedmovies*cough*)", since NPCProject is in 99% final release.

    I have a rather personal issue with Shilo-Chen.



    Shilo-Chen tell you that the ogre magi are in the south-west corner of the Wood of Sharp Teeth. Even though the Wood of Sharp Teeth consists of the areas of Larswood+Peldvale (as written on the stone signs that you find in those forests), the ogres are actually near some ruins on the Bandit Camp. I think that's quite misleading. I believe it would be proper to relocate them to some open area on the west side of Larswood.

    You have a point about the location of the quest.

    According to the FR maps, the Wood of Sharp Teeth stretches from the River Chionthar in the north (the river Baldur's Gate is on) to Durlag's Tower in the south (Durlag's Tower should be on the southern edge of the Wood, close to Gullykin). I would say that the Bandit Camp is in the Wood of Sharp Teeth. However, Shilo says the Ogre Magi are in the southwest corner of the Wood, while the Bandit Camp is more like the northwest part. So, I agree that Larswood would make more sense.


    However, since it has been this way for nearly 10 years (I see references at Pocket Plane to the location in 2006), more discussion/investigation is needed before considering moving it.

    which file should I download because right now it fails to install at all

  • AsthnerAsthner Member Posts: 83
    You need the .zip from here: https://github.com/AstroBryGuy/bg1ub/releases/tag/v14.0_beta_150102

    Download, unpack (so that the bg1ub folder and setup-bg1ub.exe end up in your 00766 folder) and run the setup. If it fails half-way during the installation, post what happened here and attach the setup-bg1ub.debug file for AstroBryGuy to examine. ;)

    @AstroBryGuy‌
    Git current provides a slightly updated version dated from January 8th.
    Is this a work-in-progress set or is it a fully functional update fixing the Kagain minor issue ?

    Many thanks for this BGEE version.

    Many thanks for this BGEE version.

    It should be fully functional (at least as functional as the 20150102 release). I had been waiting to see if other issues would be reported before rolling out a new release.

    Also looking at @Jace‌'s suggestion for Shilo Chen.

  • HudzyHudzy Member Posts: 290
    @AstroBryGuy‌ Do the item corrections and restorations conflict with BG:EE? I'm fairly sure I remember getting the Backbiter somewhere already.

    Also what do the store, tavern, and inn fixes and restorations do that isn't already covered by BG:EE?

    Just trying to decide whether or not to skip those two.

    lolien
  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,414
    @Hudzy - While BG1UB doesn't remove the already existing Backbiter from BGEE, it does still add one (but not to the same creature that has one in BGEE). So, I suppose if you consider there being two creatures with a Backbiter spear as "conflicting," then yes they would conflict.

    The Inn Fixes component doesn't do much in BGEE. It adds some merchants at the Nashkel Carnival and a small shop to the Jovial Juggler. The rest of the fixes are already in BGEE.

    @AstroBryGuy So far so good, but a couple of questions, if you may.

    Is the Root of the Problem restored? I think it should drop by Archdruid Amarande but he's just dropping a Club +2 instead. Do I need to start a new game or what? Or am I looking in the wrong place?

    Is Corianna, the Petrified Ranger part of the Creature Restorations component? If yes, are there any cool new NPCs like her I should check out?

    Hello all,

    I rolled the latest updates and bug fixes into a new beta release.

    http://github.com/AstroBryGuy/bg1ub/releases/tag/v14.0_beta_150127

    Changes in in v14.0-beta-150127:
    * Fix for Kagain Quest Journal Entries on BGEE
    * Moving Shilo Chen Quest Ogre Magi to southwest corner of Wood of Sharp Teeth (@Jace!)
    * Adding NONE flag on LEAT06 in Lucky Aello's store

    @AstroBryGuy Can't find the Ogre-Magi in the latest update. Where are they supposed to be now? I searched all "corners" to no avail.

  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,414
    @Jace - For them to appear you need to have met Shilo Chen and accepted his quest (but not finished it, obviously). The Chapter also needs to be greater than 4. So, if you install BG1UB, start a new game, and then go search the woods, you won't find them.

    If you do the following CLUA Console commands:

    C:SetGlobal("AcceptedUBShiloQuest","GLOBAL",1)
    C:SetGlobal("Chapter","GLOBAL",5)

    Then go look in the southwest of Larswood by the rock with the giant bloodstain on it, you should find them.

  • JaceJace Member Posts: 193
    @AstroBryGuy To check him out, I loaded a save just before Baldur's Gate. The chapter is set to 5, talking to Shilo-Chen correctly sets the global variable to 1, but the ogre-magi are not in the specified location, or anywhere near it. I had already explored the area before by they way. I don't have other mods installed.

    If you could check my save and see what's wrong, I would be very appreciative.

  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,414
    @Jace - I see the problem.

    The following script block in AR2900.BCS keeps firing since it doesn't adjust the variable TazokSays. And that prevents anything below it in AR2900.BCS from processing.
    IF
    Global("TazokSays","GLOBAL",1)
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    ActionOverride("Teven",DestroySelf())
    END
    Looks like I'll need to do to an EXTEND_TOP so that the Shilo Chen block is put before this block.
