Install order for BG2EE


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there, I'm playing BGEE now (fighter/thief charname), and as usual, I'm slowly putting together my mod list for the upcoming BG2EE game. My plan is to bring along Imoen (for friendship path in Imoen Romance), Aerie (to check out the Wing mod), Viconia (for romance), Cernd, and Edwin. I also want to experience a bunch of mods I haven't tried before or want to revisit.

Here's the list of mods that I plan to install, in this order. I'd really appreciate any advice from you guys here who are more knowledgeable about mod compatibility and installation order. Let me know if there's anything I should be aware of. Thanks you.

Infinity UI
EEEX
Bubb Spell Menu

Ascension (no tactical challenges, No Imoen / Saerovok components)
Unfinished Business (Components that add quests for companions only)
Turnabout

I think you'll be fine. I have most of the mods you listed in my current BG2EE run. So far in the first three chapters, I have ran into CTD errors in Neera's first meeting cutscene and Rasaad's tear of Selune encounter. As well as a dialogue issue with "Expanded Thief Stronghold" and "Heroes Thieves Moneylenders" which I addressed in the mod's forum.ย

I would switch EEEx and Infinity UI, but that's just what I saw elsewhere without any further insight or knowledge.

All in all, this looks quite solid imho.

You're right, Infinity UI have some features needing EEex. (the zoom notably)

End up restarted my BG1 play-through with a bunch of mods that enhance the game-play like kits packs, trap overhaul, new proficiency mod etc.

So I guess I will have to update my BG2 mod list some time later๐Ÿ˜€

Just leave a note here so that I will remember this for my future BGEE game:

- don't forget to install grey the dog again (yes, I've forgotten again๐Ÿ˜…)

- get aionz's new mod for candlekeep (should have a full version that time)

- try some features from atweak and tweaks and tricks mod.

What do you mean exp bloat issue? I thought there is a level cap?

If you mean level up too fast, there are mods to reduce exp from quest, killing, disarming traps, locks, learning spell etc.
