G3 Anniversary v11 Now Available
Posted: Oct 14, 2018, 10:22 pm by Ancalagon

The G3 Anniversary mod was created by the resident modders on the site's first anniversary as a way to thank our wonderful community. It features one long (and admittedly somewhat silly) quest that can be initiated by speaking a Drini, a half-elf in the Copper Coronet. Version 11 fixes some character set isues for EE games that resulted in some missing characters in dialogue and a potential crash with one of the background items.

G3: New Mini-Mod/Portrait Pack: Continuous NPC Portraits
Posted: Oct 12, 2018, 10:03 pm by Ancalagon

There are five NPCs in the Baldur's Gate series who have multiple official portraits. Edwin, Imoen, Jaheira, Minsc, and Viconia all have different portraits for the BG and BG2 games; Imoen and Viconia have a third official portrait from Siege of Dragonspear. This mod will allow you to use any of these official portraits for them on any given game, e.g. you can use Imoen's BG portrait in BG2, or Viconia's SoD portrait in BG. The original and Enhanced Editions of Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II are supported, as is Siege of Dragonspear and the various conversion projects involving these NPCs (EET, BGT, and Tutu).

G3: Baldur's Gate II Fixpack Version 12 Released
Posted: Oct 06, 2018, 08:52 am by Ancalagon

The BG2 Fixpack is a WeiDU compilation of fixes for Baldur's Gate II. This collaborative effort, including the work of modders from several different modding communities, has been the definitive compilation of fixes to supplement the official patches since its initial release in 2006 and includes all of the fixes addressed by previous efforts such as Baldurdash (including the Game Text Update) plus several hundred more.



This update marks the largest expansion of the Fixpack since its initial release, and concludes the four releases in the v11 beta series. The culmination is version 12, the first new stable release since 2013, and meets the two very ambitious goals set for it:

  • Modernization. The Fixpack was started over a decade ago, and a lot of the code shows its age. I used to joke that a rewrite of Fixpack would cut its code to a tenth of its current size--as it turns out, it was only about a half. The upshot is going to be much easier maintenance, a series of very useful macros (CD_EXTEND-O-MATIC could probably write about 90% of a new Spell-50 mod, if anyone's so inclined), a lot more flexibility, faster turnaround for new versions, and a much easier to read (and therefore customize to their preferences) Fixpack for players.
  • Expansion. The advent of the Enhanced Editions has been an absolute boon. Having a full team of developers, QA, and a massive influx of players identified a ton of new material to address. Since the EEs incorporated the Fixpack since their inception, a number of bugs that Fixpack thought it fixed but really didn't were identified along with identification of more content to restore, and just plain old bugs that had just never been noticed much less fixed. While there are a veritable ton of new bug fixes, Fixpack still has significant ground to make up to catch the BG2EE 2.5 release, and work will continue.

The changelog for the mod can be found in this thread (or jump directly to the v11 beta series or v12).

SHS: Valygar Friendship v1.0 now available
Posted: Sep 28, 2018, 07:42 pm by Ancalagon

We are happy to announce that NPC Interaction Expansion Project (IEP), a grand endeavour to uplift non-romancing relationships with Bioware NPCs to the high quality standards set by modern mods in regard of depth and complexity, has been expanded once again now adding Valygar to its fold.

An old La'Valygar project got revived, enhanced, edited and renamed by fluke13, Lava Del'Vortel and Jastey, turning into a full-fledged Valygar Friendship.

With this mod installed, you should be able to experience up to 12 dialogues in SoA and up to 5 dialogues in ToB. Note that the mod has changed greatly when compared to its previous incarnation. The most prominent changes from La'Valygar project are additional proofreading and editing, new talks, and improvements to the old ones.

SHS: Ooze's Lounge v2.0 available
Posted: Sep 23, 2018, 06:32 am by Ancalagon

The new version of Ooze's Lounge from Athkatlan Grounds series is now available. Version 2 includes a WeiDU update, a Polish translation (by memory), seperated character sounds from other sound files to provide language variations and an important readme update.



The mod introduces a brand new part of Athkatlan sewers. You may now use the originally inactive grate in Slums to enter a locked part of the sewers and discover its dark corners. The mod offers three new areas as well as a couple of mini-quests, new items and graphics. Gather your party and visit the Ooze's Lounge, a special place with spacial wares, locked from most commoners, yet opened for adventurers like yourself, Bhaalspawn.

G3: Corthala Romantique v1 Released!
Posted: Sep 19, 2018, 05:42 am by Ancalagon

This mod introduces a romance and additional content for Valygar Corthala and is available for BG2, BG2EE, BGT, and EET. Originally a part of the TeamBG mod 'Tortured Souls', the romance had a short-lived history as stand-alone part of said mod. It's since been reworked with lots of additional content and revisions and is now ready as a separate download. The Corthala Romantique adds a romance for female PCs (no short races) of good or neutral alignment (no chaotic neutral) or female druids. To proceed with the romance, the reputation has to be above 13. The mod also adds friendship talks for the SoA part of the game for PCs that do not fulfill the romance criteria. For ToB, all dialogues added are for romance, only.

G3: New versions of SCS, Tweaks Anthology Available
Posted: Sep 19, 2018, 05:42 am by Ancalagon

The party continues with updates to a pair of G3's flagship mods: Sword Coast Stratagems and Tweaks Anthology. Also be sure to drop by the site to check out our new redesign!



Sword Coast Stratagems v31 Now Available



Sword Coast Stratagems is a collection of interconnected mini-mods for Baldur's Gate (on the BGT/BGTUTU/BGEE versions) and Baldur's Gate II. It is primarily a tactical and AI-enhancement mod: the idea is to make the game's combat more interesting, tactically challenging, and realistic by more effective use of, and choices of, creatures' abilities. It also contains a few rule tweaks and ease-of-use features. Version 31 is primarily a maintenance release to fix some longstanding bugs while DavidW works on the next version.


Version 6 of Tweaks Anthology Released

The Tweaks Anthology is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks that will run on every Infinity Engine game, from the original Planescape:Torment, through the Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate series, and the new Enhanced Editions of the games. The successor to BG2 Tweaks and several other tweak packs, some of these were fan requests, others are needed fixes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only which ones they wish to install. Version 6 assimilates several components from SCS and BG1 NPC and also fixes a number of bugs.

G3: Sorcerer's Place Collection v11 Released
Posted: Sep 19, 2018, 05:42 am by Ancalagon

This collection of kits and an item pack from Sorcerer's Place has a slew of bugfixes and a revised Italian translation, thanks to Aedan. The mods in this collection were originally in an older, harder-to-install format until CamDawg converted them to use a WeiDU installer. Item restrictions are applied dynamically, meaning that the item restrictions for the Arcane Fist and Archer of Sylvanus kits will be implemented across all items in the game, including those added or altered by other mods. Polar Bear, Drizzt1180, and Creslyn wrote the original content.

G3: berelinde's Keldorn Romance updates to v4!
Posted: Sep 18, 2018, 05:42 pm by Ancalagon

The Gibberlings Three

berelinde's Keldorn Romance introduces a romance for the original BioWare NPC Keldorn. It is compatible with all BGII games: original BGII, BGII:EE, BGT, and EET.

He's loyal. He's brave. He's... single?

Life is an uncertain thing, and changes come when we least expect them.

This mod offers a chance to romance Athkatla's newest... and most reluctant... bachelor. All relationships take work, and this one takes more than most, but the rewards are great, for those patient enough to endure the trials.

This romance is not for everyone. It is certainly not a romance for the hasty. When it begins, Keldorn is grieving after the collapse of his 20-year marriage, and it takes him a long, long time to recover. It deals with mature themes, the real consequences of rejection and recovery, and some players may not want to go through all that, no matter how devoted the would-be love interest becomes in Throne of Bhaal. It is also very, very long, with 35+ talks in Shadows of Amn, though the talks are spaced more closely together to compensate for this.

To begin the Keldorn Romance, you must allow Keldorn and Maria to reconcile. He will only consider himself free if his marriage to Maria is legally ended, and imprisoning Maria will only separate them, not divorce them. Also, Maria's incarceration might present childcare issues that would be impossible to overcome.

The mod also features a quest for all PCs, romanced or not, though that, too, requires a reconcilliation between Keldorn and Maria.



v4 comes with bugfixes and the possibility to enable multi-romancing with a cheat.



Changes:

  • first Keldorn-Viconia banter will no longer repeat
  • externalized detection of other romances into script. Other romance detection can be disabled by setting Global("B!Kel_MultiRomances","GLOBAL",1) via the cheat console.
  • more mod romances considered for other romance detection: Adrian, Valygar (Corthala Romantique), Verr'Sza, Xan BGII
  • Original Tree of Life interjection should not play if mod one does
  • Original Solar interjection at the end of ToB should not play if mod added does; other NPCs should talk as well.

G3: Wheels of Prophecy v7 Now Available
Posted: Sep 14, 2018, 04:33 am by Ancalagon

The Wheels of Prophecy is a mod for Baldur's Gate II and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition by DavidW, author of Sword Coast Stratagems, adding new content, dialog and roleplaying options to the Throne of Bhaal expansion. It makes only minor changes to the main storyline but allows the player to interact with that storyline in a much more non-linear way. Version 7 fixes some bugs in the previous version.

G3: Crossmod Banter Pack v16 Released
Posted: Sep 12, 2018, 04:12 am by Ancalagon

Another release for G3's upcoming 15th anniversary, the Crossmod Banter Pack is a collaborative effort to add banters between mod NPCs that add content to Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, written by the original NPC authors working in collaboration. Version 16 fixes a ton of typos, makes the mod EET compatible, and fixes one more bug.

G3: v2 of Level One NPCs Available
Posted: Sep 10, 2018, 03:43 am by Ancalagon

Nythrun's mod derives from Gebhart Blucher's Alternate BG2 NPCs (lvl1npcs.zip). Her massive opus of "allow player choice" allows you to start any of the joinable NPCs from BG and BG2 as level one characters with excess experience points. When they join your party, you can level them up and choose their skills. Level 1 NPCs expands on Blucher's original concept by allowing players to assign any previously installed kit/class - default or customized - onto any default (and many mod-added joinable) NPCs from both BG1 and BG2 games. The mod also allows players to change the NPC's skills and weapon proficiencies, individually tweak stats, and much, much more... Khalid the Fighter/Painbearer of Ilmater, Mazzy the Paladin, Jaheira the Kensai, and Valygar the Wizard Slayer are just a few examples. Version 2 makes some long overdue bugfixes and extends--tentatively--support for BGEE, BG2EE, and EET.

G3: Vynd NPC v2 Released
Posted: Sep 10, 2018, 03:43 am by Ancalagon

More celebrations as a new version of the Vynd NPC mod: a Drow Assassin, recruitable at the Burning Wizard inn in Beregost. Though evil in alignment, he will not complain or leave due to reputation. Vynd includes a dialogue track with the player character consisting of 20 talks, banters with all Bioware NPCs (including the four Enhanced Edition newcomers), numerous interjections and extensive player-initiated dialogue.
