Due to wanting to keep our games very stable for modding purposes, we don’t often change our installs. We tend to toss files back and forth between computers quite a bit and sometimes it only takes a slight difference to start seeing some wacky bugs due to the inconsistencies. But today is the day! Looking forward to trying a couple of new mods and updating others.
Due to needing a new set of saves for testing purposes, I will need to start from scratch and play through BGI again with a couple of new characters. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
One of the things that I thought I might try is a modded kit, but I’m not sure that there is one out there that would fit with my own preferences yet.
It must not nerf my insect or fire summoning spells.
It must not change or rebalance large parts of the original gameplay in other areas.
It must be installable as a single component.
It must be compatible with version 1.3 of the game.
If it adds the ability for druids to use traps, please do tell me about it! I’ve always thought that this ability would fit well with both druids and rangers.
I think a kit that was more of a Druid/Ranger cross might be fun. Possibly with more of the thief abilities emphasized. Like the traps that I mentioned before. I wouldn’t mind if they gave up some close combat usefulness in favor of ranged ability and spells. I never use duel wield, charm animal or backstab.
In general, what sounds interesting, fun, adds role-play possibilities, is more important to me than that it be “perfectly balanced”.
We will no doubt eventually get around to trying our hand at kit modding, but it is currently at the bottom of our “must finish first” list. So I thought I would just ask others here if they have some “favorites” that they have been enjoying in their own games recently.
