    [​IMG] I've edited the question out of your post that you've since placed in the proper forum (if you read the description of this forum, you'll see that this one wasn't it).

    As for your remaining question, no, you saw right, there's no review of TDD here. And there are several possible reasons for that. One is that the general public consensus is that the mod is bad. It was one of the first bigger ones, and it shows. This already severely limits the number of people who want to install and play it. The other possible reason is that we've been short on mod reviewers for some time. So if you want to review it, you're more than welcome. Just check the stickies in this forum.

    Oh, and more NWN modules, please. :p

    Edit: I know there's a large number of those, but what about NWVault's Hall of Fame for a beginning?

    Everyone wants reviews, no one wants to write them. Prospect looks bleak.

    Saerileth or the Yasreena (kill me if I spelt wrong :p ) mod from the same author make a nice impression. You know I'm a vanilla game fan but I think people will like those.

    What about some NWN Persistent Worlds rather than modules, however?

    I would gladly read a review of Improved Anvil for BG2 mod. It's a new one, with bigger content than Weimer's Item Upgrade (more upgraded items, and uses newer weidu technology and thus better compatibility with other mods), actually supposed to replace IU. (And thus not compatible with it.). I thought this info might be handy before anyone would download it to play and review it because the mod has no own website.

    The Redemption: The Longer Road mod. It's great. I beta-tested it two years ago and it was great satisfaction as dorotea put a lot of work in it. I might consider playing it again, but I have to put the game back from the shelves. Maybe even try for review, but nothing is certain. English isn't my first language, so do not expect wonders.

    What I'd be most interested is information on how to set up the most concurrent mods for all of the Infinity Engine games. How far can you take BG1/BG2 these days (especially now that EasyTutu is out)? What about IWD?

    Are there even any IWD2 mods?

    Yes, there are a few:
    Ease-of-Use
    Bonus Merchant
    Undead Targos
    New Starting Parties
    Cleric Domains
    Subraces

    I also recall one still in development to allow specific joinable NPCs with banter.

    ^Tal Rasha also created a Tactics-like mod for IWD2, which enhances the battles and enemy AI. See it in IWD2 forums.

    I would also like to see a full-detailed rewiev of Improved Anvil as well. I can not try it now as it is not compatible with Item upgrade and some components of Tactics mod. I need to uninstall these first, but they are my very first mods, I have more than 40, so I will have to uninstall ALL of them and then re-install them if I want to try Imp. Anvil. (needless to say I have no desire to do it, it will take a half-day, and I do not know if it will cause bugs or not)

    I wonder if it is superior to Item Upgrade or Tactics, and in what aspects? Can somebody do it? Please!

    I intend to complete the game I'm going through (romancing Fade) and then redoing which mods to have installed. I would be willing to do a review of Improved Anvil at that point. OTOH, I'm possibly not the best person to test it as I haven't installed either Item Upgrade (over-powered items) or Tactics (I want a role-playing game without having to use metagaming).

    ^Hmm. I would prefer a tactics-item upgrade player to review IA to see the differences too. But I guess it is hard to find such a person. If you think you can survive its advanced battles (which Sikret boldly states that they are even harder than tactics one. uh-oh!) go for it pal! I will gladly read your review!

    I'll be starting a new game of TOB with the anvil mod. However, since it has been about 2 yrs since I last played with tactics + ascension, dont expect a subjective comparison.

    Kido is fun(some very Eeeeevil dialogue), Keto is very good(including Kelsey-quality voicing), but currently SoA-only. Take Anomen and especially Yoshimo with you, if you want to have her.

    I'd like to know about Darkness over Daggerford(NWN1), especially about dialogue. Some say it is good and awesome, some insist that the dialogue is abysmal. Is it worth playing at least once, or is it that bad?

    (And, naturally, I'd like to see a Xan BG2 NPC review and a BG1 NPC Project review, but I *am* biased.)
