jastey's SoD NPC Modding Tutorials

Recommended Posts

The tutorials contain SoD plot spoilers, obviously.

Here are the links to my SoD modding tutorials:
Modding Tutorial Part 1: Automatic Transition of NPCs into SoD and between Camps in SoD
Modding Tutorial Part 2: Make Your NPC Comment and Move Along at the End of SoD
Modding Tutorial Part 4: How to Script the SoD Banter System for Your NPC

And here is all the knowledge of the tutorials bundled into a working NPC mod:
Biff the Understudy Tutorial NPC Mod for SoD
Please note: the mod is working, but Biff has a basic cre, no items, no portrait, and no soundset. The focus of the mod is on the scripting described in the tutorials.


Descriptions:
Modding Tutorial Part 1: Automatic Transition of NPCs into SoD and between Camps in SoD:
This tutorial deals with the transition of an NPC from BG:EE to SoD and how to move your NPC from one SoD area to another depending on the campaign's progress if they are not in the group. As an example NPC, Biff the Understudy will be the NPC in this guide!
In SoD, joinable NPCs that are not in the party will still be present and waiting in whichever camp the coalition is staying currently. This tutorial lists all relevant scripts that need to be patched for a mod NPC to make them behave the same way.
It contains examples of what and how to add to the scripts so your mod NPC will be moved around SoD camps during the progressing SoD campaign in case they are not in the party, too.

Modding Tutorial Part 2: Make Your NPC Comment and Move Along at the End of SoD
This tutorial deals with how to integrate your NPC into the events and cutscenes at the end of SoD. Biff the Understudy will be the example NPC in this guide.
Note: This tutorial contains heavy SoD spoilers.

Modding Tutorial Part 4: How to Script the SoD Banter System for Your NPC
This tutorial deals with how to make your NPC banter with the other party NPCs like it is custom in SoD. In SoD, banters of party NPCs are done via floating text above their heads while the player wanders about the areas. As an example NPC, Biff the Understudy will be the NPC in this guide, bantering with Corwin.

The first post was updated with another tutorial:

"Part 4" because I have already other tutorials planned for 2 and 3.
