NPC IEP going through a rewrite & rethink!
« on: April 16, 2006, 11:11:46 PM »
Well, I thought I'd make a post about it because its happening. It has been mentioned numerous times that each and every author of the pack has their own project, and eventually progress has come to an unavoidable halt.

Theacefes, and Tameon the Dragoon have officially resigned from working on the pack, and most of the other authors have said they would still like to work on it but no longer have the time or motivation, so this project is looking for new writers, coders, and anyone else who would like to help.

If you WOULD like to help in any way, shape, or form, either PM or email me at liam.esler@gmail.com

I really do like the concept of this project, and would like to continue, but to put it simply unless someone volounteers to help this project will be hittin' the dust for a while until I've got Illyria to a playable state. :-)

Maybe if something has not been moving for sometime but only causes conflicts, and individual participants are focusing on other matters but hoping for new people to come in and move the project for them, perhaps it should be put in the Archives section?

If members are going to focus on the IEP over their current projects, whether or not new blood is entering, I suppose the direction has to come from the "established" members rather than from the "new" people, yes?

Which is quite what I was thinking about when posting this. I myself have been making progress on Jaheira, which is why I haven't asked for it to be moved yet. We'll see whether I do or not :-)

If it would be going in the 'archives' section I'll have it removed entirely- I would rather it be unofficial until we had a beta version in that case. :-)

I wish I was a better modder, but some things are not meant to be learned by everybody..

But I might have some ideas, if such a thing is needed. If that would be the case, I'll gladly help.

Don't have to be a good modder to be a good writer :)

indeed, quite a few contributors to the BG1 NPC Project weren't coders either :).

Same case here.  I'd love to write (my English teacher seems to think I'm pretty good at it), but I have no idea how to code...  But I have ideas! :D  Maybe I could write a few sample dialogue ideas for a few characters, send them to you, and see how you like them, K'aeloree?


I really love the idea of this project, and I want to make sure it gets finished.  BGII needs more attention to the Bioware originals!  Not to knock NPC mods, because I do love them, but I think it benifits the game better to flesh out existing characters than to put more new ones in.

That would be wonderful, AEnemia! Send anything to liam.esler(@)gmail.com removing the ()'s obviously. We haven't worked much on it, but we do intend to very soon - some help would be greatly appreciated! :)

All right! :D  I'll get around to writing some sample dialogues up for you soon, hopefully.  It's summer, so I have plenty of time on my hands to come up with ideas. :P

Any specific characters?  NPC-NPC, or PC-NPC conversations?

Hmm- anything is fine. :) We're more looking at PC dialogue and interjections, though NPC-NPC dialogue is fine as well, if you feel it adds to the characters involved!

Good luck! ^^
