Quick Question
« on: January 19, 2013, 07:07:23 PM »
Hey all, old player, just downloaded the enhanced edition from Steam....

I haven't picked up BG for years, but remember playing mods such as Shadows over Soubar and Tortured Souls way back when (Mostly for BG2).

As a quick question, can I expect to see the same sort of effort put into the EE mods as for the original game?
Are they easily ported from one to the other, or will the older mods work in the new enhanced version?

I just loved what you guys used to do and was wondering if I can enjoy the fruits of your labours all over again :)

From my understanding old mods don't work and it doesn't look like a lot of them are being ported over that quickly. It may not be as easy as some people thought. That is for bG1. Hopefully they don't make that many changes with BG2EE because there are a lot of mods for that game.

The problem with BG1 mods is they are generally the larger quest type mods that bring in new content into the game. I'm currently porting over Dark Side of the Sword Coast. There are a lot of little things even that have to be changed.

BG2 has a lot of the NPC mods and I don't think that will be a big issue porting those over when BG2EE is done. Now the larger mods like TDD, CtB may be a real chore to do.
My mods:
Dark Horizons
The Undying
Nikita
IWD2 store
