Would it be easy to include the Lesser Divination stuff for BG2 too, in a minimod or Tweak Pack? I assume it's just patching the exclusion flags of some SPLs and scrolls?
Also please to be updating text.

Yeh, that too. I think NiGHTMARE's posted code for everything but the text, actually, so, ace. :)

And Echon, how is the few weeks promise coming along?? :)
It's strange but I'm anticipating this mod as much as I was anticipating Fable and Sudeki last year.
Let's hope it will not be such a letdown like those games. :P

Dear Echon,

a simple question, are you concentrating on fixing bugs in FotD and on BG1 Unfinished Business "only" or is your modding time taken by other projects ? If you dont mind me being curious...Also it would be great if you could some time update a little here about possible progress...

Since the last update I have not been doing any modding at all which explains the lack of updates here. It is funny you should ask, though, since I am going to start fixing bugs today.

I just noticed that creatures don't behave the way it is written in the Monsterous Manual (ie. Kobolds don't target gnomes first, etc.). I would welcome a change that would rectify this.

The kobold behaviour is an oversight which will be fixed. Hobgoblins do attack elves first.

To make an actual update, let me just say that things are going fine although I am not as far as I would have been had I not recieved my copy of Serious Sam 2 two days ago.

If the error occurs without the mod installed I am going to assume it is not what is causing it. The next area is AR0514. You can move there by activating the CLUA Console and writing CLUAConsole:MoveToArea("AR0514").

If you have done as it says here, load your game, hold down CTRL and press TAB and then write the line in bold in the box that appears and press enter.

Hey Echon,

       I have really been enjoying FotD and the changes you made to BG1!! :)  Two things that stand out in my mind though...

       1) I have played BG1 many times and I have always looked forward to finding the hidden/secret goodies... is there any way you would consider putting at least something there rather than nothing (and they don't have to be the same things)?

       2) I really like the Low Quality and High Quality items you added (it makes perfect sense), but could you maybe change the green tint of the High Quality items to something else (like blue or silver)?  Green makes me think they are a "fungus" version... lol! :)

Thank you for your time,
LoneRogue

1) I do not want to use the same spots since everybody knows them. I have placed hidden items elsewhere, though, so search and you shall find.

2) In theory I could change the colour but it would include more work than I am going to bother with. I cannot alter them in BAM format so I would need to export them as JPG, change the colour in Photoshop and then recreate the BAMs.

Do you mean you have created new containers? Do I have to go over every micrometre of every map with pixel precision, like trying to find the ring of wizardry under the tree by the Friendly Arm?

 :-[


Oh, I don't know if this is a bug (IDKITIAB), but when meeting Bassilus, my two Druids tried to cast Entangle and just kept standing there waving their arms for ages and ages and ages without the spell going off and without the undead turning hostile (maybe because the spell targets were non-hostile? The spells were wasted, though, even though not cast. Even when we killed Bassilus they didn't turn hostile. Even when Branwen turned them and they all fled into a corner from where we could pick them off one by one, they only turned hostile when we hit them or if they saw us hitting one of them. This fight was always difficult because of the number of zombies and skeletons, but even with the spell wastage it was much easier in FotD. I think I always used a Fireball in the unmodded game, though, so maybe that's why they all used to turn hostile as soon as Bassilus did.

As I say, IDKITIAB or not.


Cheers!

I have only made a few new containers, and not all the items are hidden there. It should not be a pixel hunt.

My 1st-level Druid just cast an Entangle spell without problems. Try it a few more times to see if the problem persists. As for Bassilus' undead, they should turn hostile when  you start fighting him or attack them. I will have a loot at what is wrong.

And what does IDKITIAB mean?

Hi,

It's not casting entangle that's a problem, it was casting an entangle at Bassilus and his minions before they turned hostile. It's worked well before with other combats. I don't think he turned invisible or anything as usually the spell is wasted and you get the message "target lost" or some such - but they just kept waving their hands over and over, like there was a casting time of 10 rounds. I started casting it just before the conversation started with my 2nd main character, an Illusionist-Thief, who pretended to be mother. Then he turned hostile and the druids just kept wiggling and none of the minions went hostile until they were attacked themselves.

IDKITIAB = I Don't Know If This Is A Bug

By the way, I read your reply about Greywolf and I take back everything I said about combat being easier - I found Greywolf and Bassilus easier (although I have enough experience to meta-game those and pre-prepare), but the Ogre-Mage with the Nereid and all those Sirens were HEAVY. I had to retreat, level up and go back to get that ogre. All for 975 XP, whereas just murdering the Nereid in the first place would have got me 5000 XP. I never did really understand that encounter. I thought we got a rep boost for saving her, but apparently not.

And a DRACOLISK!? I need a new spell - Power Word: Reload!


Cheers

Did you meet Ogre-Droth, Shoal and the sirens together? The purpose of the encounter is to rescue a damsel in distress. Killing her is for thouroughly evil parties or players metagaming for XP.

Why? It is comparable to the other bassilisks.

"So... what's the news on FotD?"

I am glad you asked. I have begun updating the mod again. More specifically, it is being updated to full-fledged WeiDU magic. When this conversion is complete only new files will be copied to the override folder. Hopefully this will make FotD compatible with Tutu. Time will tell if any new problems arise.

Since I am going through every single file in the mod, bug fixes and other changes will also be included in the update. I am having a look at some of the changes that I am not fully satisfied with, such as poison and shields. Low quality weapons will also be removed. They make great flavour items but are pointless since normal items are available in Candlekeep.
