I have been looking around for a while but couldn't seem to find an answer so I decided I'd bother you magnificent modders :
Is there a mod that would make the BG games use 3rd edition ability modifiers? As in modifier goes up by one for every 2 points in an ability, applies the same way to everything that depends on that ability.
I suppose most of it (from the top of my head, strength bonus to damage, to hit, carrying capacity, and breaking ; dex bonus to AC, Thieving skills, ranged to hit ; con bonus to HP ; wisdom bonus spells ; charisma bonus to social interactions) would just require .2DA changes.
But there are some, such as
int&charisma bonus spells, bonus to saving throws, prolly some more,
that I have no idea how they could be done, if it is at all possible.
I'm not necessarily looking for every balancing factors (such as max dex bonus to ac on armor) but I'd really like a more linear scaling for abilities as a whole, so if you happen to know of a mod that gives that or to know what (and ideally why, i'm curious =D ) isn't possible at all, I would very much like to hear it.
