No "No Traps" Option for IWD2 Tweak Pack?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I've recently installed IWD2 and the tweak pack. Despite being obsessed with all of the Baldur's Gate games for almost the past 15 years, I was never able to get into IWD 1 or 2 that much because of the lack of story and NPCs. I only last year finally played through IWD1, and I figured it was time to give IWD2 a chance. So far I'm enjoying it (well, it's certainly not BG2... but hey it's still decent).


Being extremely familiar with these games, I must say I never cared for traps at all. I'm not the kind of gamer who enjoys cheating or reducing difficulty, but IMO traps are not a form of difficulty; rather, they are a mere nuisance and don't add any real "difficulty" to the game. I prefer a trap system akin to the one found in Skyrim: where a keen eye can spot them but actually removing them requires a certain trained skill. I don't particularly enjoy needing to stop my entire party and turn on "Search" just to wait around and search for traps. /rant lol


I was intrigued to see that you could supposedly remove them using the tweak pack. However, when I install the tweak pack, the "no traps" option never appears. The install process goes smoothly for all of the other options, but I am never asked in the command prompt whether I want to install the "no traps" option. I just started Chapter 2 and the first zone is littered with traps, which I find frustrating. I imagine the later chapters will only have more of them. Any explanation would be appreciated!


I am sorry if this has been answered before. If so, I wasn't able to find it.







EDIT: I did just find this thread http://forums.gibberlings3.net/index.php?showtopic=16529&hl=traps&fromsearch=1 which says that it's actually not included because it makes the game unwinnable. Is that true? If so I am sad :( Also I think it may be time to update the list of components on the website to reflect that, lol.
