Subrace mod

Recommended Posts

I'd avoid level-scaling magic resistance because experience tables based on class is uneven unlike 3E. There's no reason a single-class drow thief should gain MR substantially faster than a fighter/mage. A flat 50% to match BG1 Viconia's seems like the right idea (her 65% in BG2 is completely silly).

Good. Received. I would be grateful for further corrections.

But so far I do not see an opportunity to remove the icon from the portrait. But if I find something, I will immediately update.

I will update by the evening. Not at home now.

Yes, the mod only supports EE due to implementation features.

The update will be a little later. Now I have some personal problems. But I will try to take into account all the suggestions.

The icon trick was the only way I found to display a subrace. You can disguise it as a clone of an icon the creature ought already to have (e.g. magic resistance) if you also give them immunity to the original icon.

Oh. Thank you, I didn't think. I will try to do this.

The link has been moved to the first post.

- added protection from reducing Charisma to 0
- the thief abilities of ghost halflings are only available for thief classes
- change in hair and skin color is determined by the user's choice
- subrace icon made transparent (Other options are being tested)

Thanks. Here's how to say. I tried to make it as versatile as possible. But how did it happen. Officially, BG does not support subraces. I had to compromise. And only for Enhanced Edition versions of the game. If anything is needed, I can add changes based on your mod.

What I do currently is I detect the subrace mods, then install an additional script block which sets a variable in case the PC is Drow or Half-Drow. What I would need for your mod is how to detect this. Does a check for Race(Player1,Drow), Race(Player1,Half-Drow) work like for Corsymyr's BG:EE Subrace mod or would I need something else?

I didn't do the DROW race on purpose. Since this will break the romances in the game. Drow is an ordinary elf. Just with effects that make him drow. The mod was created to select a subrace for the CHARNAME. Added subraces for Viconia, Baeloth, Korgan and Caelar. The check can be done using the local variable SUBRACE. I can make this variable for Solafain. And now he will be blind from some fire spells. Not all of them yet. But I am working on it.


About the old file. It looks like google doesn't update the date if you replace the file.
