Should a first time player use SCS mod to play?

So I have been on and off on getting into baldurs gate, and have finally gotten the time to delve into it full swing. While doing some research I had found the SCS mod and figured it sounded like it helped out the game big time and installed it.
But while playing I feel like it changes some things... IE; characters you meet, most noticeably your first two companions you meet at the inn... Have I just mistaken or does it actually change big things like this?

Should a first time play thorougher use this mod?

    SCS has an extensive readme.
    Basically it changes enemy behaviour (smarter and a bit better equipped) and some game mechanics. It doesn’t touch the plot contents. :)

    I definitely advice to go through your first Baldur's Gate run without any mods.

    Also, don't use any playthroughs. Enjoy everything as it is. Find out yourself!

    Absolutely not.

    SCS is very specifically design for a particular kind of player that already knows every nook and cranny of the game, and uses that omniscience against the AI.

    The game stands on its own. Play normally, maybe use some 'variety' mods (kits, NPCs), but you should start using SCS or tweak mods until you're affirmatively bored with the game and want to change the *gameplay.*

    Awesome guys, thanks for all the insight on the mod and suggestions! I have uninstalled it!
