A Gibberlings Three Mod

Version 2 - Check for the most recent version

Overview

The G3 Ps:T Tweak Pack is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks. 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.

If you have a suggestion for improving one of the tweaks, or to suggest a new tweak, please visit the Gibberlings Three forums. Users of our tweak packs for other games may notice this one has far fewer options; this is in many cases due to the fact that certain tweaks are not applicable in the Ps:T engine, such as 100% Learn Spells (as learn chance is always 100% in Ps:T).

Compatibility

This tweak pack is designed to work with Planescape: Torment. It should be installed after any non-WeiDU mods.

We would recommend using the official patch and the unofficial fixpack by Platter, both of which should be installed first.

Except where noted, the tweaks adjust items or dialogues added by other mods. As such, it is highly recommended that you install this mod after other mods if you wish to take full advantage of it.

Installation

Windows
The G3 Ps:T Tweak Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU and is distributed as a self-extracting archive. To install, simply double-click the archive and follow the instructions on screen.

Alternatively the files can be extracted from the archive using WinRAR. If properly extracted, you should have a G3PSTweaks folder, Setup-G3PSTweaks.tp2 and Setup-G3PSTweaks.exe in your Ps:T folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-G3PSTweaks.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Please run Setup-G3PSTweaks.exe in your Ps:T folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Mac OS X
If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version. Please note that this mod is incompatible with Mod Organizer. The G3 Ps:T Tweak Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU. To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your Ps:T folder. If properly extracted, you should have a G3PSTweaks folder, G3PSTweaks.tp2, Setup-G3PSTweaks, and Setup-G3PSTweaks.command in your Ps:T folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-G3PSTweaks.command and follow the instructions on screen.

Contents

The tweak pack contains separate components that can be installed independently of one another.

Higher Stacking, Including Rings/Earrings/Bracelets
This component increases the maximum stacks of charms, scrolls, bolts and similar items up to 255 from their previous lower limits. It also allows you to stack some previously unstackable loot items such as nonmagic rings, earrings and bracelets. It's meant to be an RPG, not an inventory micromanagement game.

Identify All Items
Annoyed with having to identify items all the time? Now you don't have to. This component will affect all items in the game, including items introduced by mods.

Explore City Areas
This component removes the fog of war from the maps of city areas. The locations affected are The Hive, Ragpicker's Square, The Buried Village, The Dead Nations, The Lower Ward, Clerk's Ward, Curst, The Siege Tower and Fhjull's House. Thanks to Platter for the inspiration for this component (though the implementation of this differs slightly from his original tweak. It shouldn't matter which of the two, or both, you use).

Max HP On Level UP
With this component installed your party members will get their maximum available number of hit points on level up.

Rest Anywhere
Tired and frustrated you can't rest in certain areas of the game? Now you can. Please note that if you do not start a new game then you will not be able to rest in areas you have visited already, unless they were previously ones you could rest in. Thanks to Japheth for the original code for this component (though it was changed to account for Ps:T's slightly different engine).
