: Zakrion, a New NPC for BGEE, Joins G3

G3 is pleased to offer a new NPC for BGEE: Zakrion, a human Duelist found near the ship wreckage on the Sword Coast. Zakrion is authored by jmaeq, who has previously published The Beaurin Legacy. The mod includes custom portraits and voicing, a friendship track, numerous banters and interjections, and a "semi-romance" with the PC. Learn more about the mod on its project page, forum, or readme, or grab v1.0 from the download center.

: G3 welcomes the Endless BG1 Modification!

The Gibberlings Three welcome the Endless BG1 Modification!

EBG1 is a mod for BG:EE, BG:SoD, BGT, and EET.

For the EE games, the main aim of this mod is to provide the possibility to remain in the BG1 "world" after Sarevok is defeated. Original progressing/ending of the game will be done by talking to Duke Belt inside the Palace.

For EET, it also adds the possibility to move on to BGII by skipping SoD completely. This was included because it was easy to add, not because I think it should be skipped. (Also note that there might be mods that expect SoD events to have happened in BGII).

For BGT, the main component of the mod adds some praise for the PC to Duke Belt's dialogue and removes some oversights with regard to references to Sarevok after he died.

There are several optional components that give more flavor to the situation and prepare for the SoD story events in all games. For most additional content I was inspired by how Baldur's Gate city looks in SoD. Two components are for SoD/EET only.

: Item Upgrade v1.2.0 Released

SoD to BG2EE Item Upgrade is a mod for BG2:EE that imports many more items from Siege of Dragonspear into the game, placing them into thoughtful location in Shadows of Amn.  The mod also has an optional component to force importation of the SoD items that a player can normally import into BG2:EE at their normal locations.

Lastly, the mod also gives upgrade recipes to Cromwell and Cespenar to upgrade most of the imported SoD items.

Version 1.2.0 includes changes to some item names and abilities based on feedback from the community, along with more new items added from SoD.  There are also new upgrade recipes, and even an update to an existing HLA that fills a major gap it had!

: Sword Coast Stratagems version 33 is now available

Sword Coast Stratagems is a collection of interconnected mini-mods for Baldur's Gate (on the BGT/BGTUTU/BGEE versions) and Baldur's Gate II. It is primarily a tactical and AI-enhancement mod: the idea is to make the game's combat more interesting, tactically challenging, and realistic by more effective use of, and choices of, creatures' abilities. It also contains a few rule tweaks and ease-of-use features.

Version 33 is largely a bug-fixing release: it features fixes to 40-odd bugs and compatibility issues, including serious problems with the NPC customization component, the random scrolls component, and Death Spell (which was turning neutrals hostile). It also adds a small new cosmetic component (improved Tales of the Sword Coast textscreens), allows IWD spells to be tied to hotkeys, tweaks the shapeshifter tokens, and makes some slight changes to mage and priest AI.

Grab it direct here. You can also visit the extensive project pages, readme, or SCS forum for more information.
