Help needed: armor, katanas, and bastard swords from mods


Recommended Posts

There still remains no good way to do the armor tweaks and 2H bastard swords/katanas on the fly, so the list of items to be patched is built manually. I went through some time back looking for armor and shields for the two armor tweaks, but by now the list is probably fairly dated (plus I never got a list from several of the mega-mods). I'd like help with generating lists of these items for the next Tweaks release, as I can not possibly track down every mod and item pack.


Specifically, I need the file name of any bastard sword or katana added by mods.


I also need armor and shields added by mods, along with its type (studded leather, buckler, splint, etc.). The current list that tweaks uses is from around the time of BG1 NPC v7 and included armor and shields (at the time) from these mods:

  • ashes of embers
  • bg1 npc v7
  • bgt-bp + dsotsc + sobh
  • cassius npc
  • dark ritual
  • deeper shadows of amn: red dragon grothgar component
  • desecration of souls
  • exenem's addon
  • fr-rov
  • fw item pack
  • improved asylum
  • item upgrade v32
  • mordan's xmas mod
  • munchmod
  • neh'taniel
  • planar sphere mod
  • quest pack
  • rogue rebalancing
  • ruad v19
  • shed's iron modder 5
  • song & silence
  • sp item pack
  • sp stuff
  • tgc v1.70
  • the magnificant magic shop
  • the unusual oddities shop
  • underrepresented items v2

SCS (I/II) does this slightly confusingly... it adds the "excellent bastard sword", but it calls it "sw1h02" (and generates it on-the-fly from sw1h01), and it movesthe "+1 bastard sword" to "dw#swd01". (Add "_" as appropriate for TUTU). I assume that this will only cause problems if SCS is installed before BG2 Tweaks, but then that's fairly likely, I guess. (I tend to do it the other way around, but then I'm normally modifying SCS more often than I'm adjusting the Tweakpack options).

I don't know what kind of armours these mods adds to the picture, but they do add some armours wich could be among these needed. Here's some modnames, perhaps you/others can tell more precisely what included and whats not: Setup_BG2SoA_v2.rar (adds Bg1 stuff to Jonnys dungeon including various armours), iiItems (adds various armours), BoM pack from SP, and perhaps Improved Anvil.


Did it help at all?

In RR v3.71 you have:


RR#BUC01.ITM - Kiel's Buckler (Buckler +1)

RR#BUC02.ITM - Buckler +1 (also present in TuTu and the BG1 portion of BGT)

RR#BUC03.ITM - Buckler +2 (also present in TuTu and the BG1 portion of BGT)

RR#BUC04.ITM - Buckler +3

RR#RWARD.ITM - Rogue's Ward (Buckler +2)

sorry for interfering, but could you explain the problem with patching on the fly? Just curious.

For the katanas and bastard swords, it's really a matter of name space. For each sword, I have to create two extra items--there's no way to guarantee that the new file names won't conflict with an existing item if I try to use some naming algorithm. If I try to use some list of file names and just go through the list as I find swords, then the swords won't have the same resrefs from game to game, which is not something with which I'm happy.


For the armor it's a matter of they're not being clear-cut indicators in the file of armor types. It's difficult to distinguish a chain from an elven chain from a splint mail, and mods make this even more difficult. The same issue exists for shields as well.

Note, that many of these items may be in slightly different categories such as full-plate, small shields, large shields, etc. I just gleaned these from reading through the .tra and .tp2 files for these mods.



More to come.

Most of them still are, but they have been renamed. As of v3.5, all files introduced by Rogue Rebalancing use the RR# prefix, so BUCK02.ITM is now RR#BUC02.ITM. :) As for CYLEAT.ITM it's now called RR#ABIH.ITM and its description and stats have been slightly changed from what they were back in v3.11.
