SHS: Rupert the Dye Merchant updated to v3.0.0

Recommended Posts

Spellhold Studios

Rupert the Dye merchant has been updated and is now available with macOS and Linux support.

This mod adds a new merchant who sells various dyes and new outfits. Dyes work like potions. These can be used by anyone, and will permanently change the user's colours as specified by the particular dye: there are separate options for major and minor colours, leather (belts/boots/straps), armour, decorative items (like belt buckles/amulets) and hair.

Version 3.0.0 is BG2, ToB, BG Tutu, BGT, BG:EE, SoD, BG2:EE and EET compatible, and includes new French and Russian translations, as well as a restored German translation.

Inventory icon BAMs in the bam folder that meet these requirements are patched and saved back to the override folder.
