NWN2 = no mods?
« on: August 08, 2007, 07:00:07 AM »
Are there not any NWN2 modders out there? This game came with a great looking toolset and yet there are very few people modding NWN2? What is the world coming to? The people who had to do all of that hard work, gathering information for the IE games so they could understand the game's workings so they could make tools so people can mod it would have given anything I am sure, to have the company offer them a free toolset to do mods. Like WTF is with people?

Maybe people think NWN2 is not good enough to mod it ???

Maybe the toolset is ******* them in the head, asking for a too good configuration to work properly, so they gave up on it. ::)

Then where are the mods for NWN1? Or at least the threads about NWN1. In the Tales of Neverwinter sub-forum, even though it is for NWN1&2 even the stickies are only for NWN2. ::)

You mean CoM mods?
I saw hundreds NWN mods on some kind of official site (too bad I can't post there :evil).

NWN Vault. We all know about it. But this is about CoM.

Ooooh, we could make something, too. I was trying to make one serious and evil mod recently, as well as a parody about a prince/princess.

But Aurora scripting is getting on me nerves.

Theacefes is building one. But you'll have to play as her to get it rolling. Apparently there's some sort of prophecy about her. I don't believe in prophecies, but I am going to try her module when it is completed.;D

I'm sure others are quite capable of posting links, information, etc.

Ace's mod sounds promising. The only thing is the waiting...

Scripting in NWN 2 is similar to NWN but beware of variations in the 2DA files.
Wings can be added to a PC in either via script or GFF Editor. Codes are different between the 2 games here.

The creature armor and bite slots seem to be available in NWN 2 as well.
Used those to set up a semi-vampiric PC. Nothing major there yet, but effective.

Speaking of mods, are there any mods out there that would make the OC more enjoyable? I mean XP cap removal, improvements to AI, more familiar/animal companions (I miss the panther from NWN1).

TonyK's AI scripts are pretty popular, and IIRC MotB added a panther as the familiar. (At least I have heard something like that).

You are answering to a question over one month old. In the mean time I acquired MotB and even finished it. Panthers are in NWN2 with MotB, but since I have no interest in using a ranger ever again in that game, that's just too little to late.

For a game that is suppose to be modable it doesn't even come close to the good mods that Oblivion has. The developers failed when it came to making a friendly tool set and modding the original content of the game.
