Should I start compiling modifications and putting them up on Moddb?  So that we have redundant mirrors???

I'm not sure that'd be legal. A better idea might be writing to Sillara and her husband via their G3 profile(or via their CoM profile) - and maybe SHS would agree to host it, if they had permission(as SHS has much more visitors from BG2-modding-world).

the link for the totsc patch and presumably the other 'official' patches goes to a page where there is no files to download or links to files to download.  please investigate.  had to do a google search for other locations of the patches.

My working mods:
an AI Party Script for BG2 game engine DOWNLOAD LINK ONLY!
Interactive Tweaks for BG series with some IWD support. DOWNLOAD LINK ONLY!
Rest For 8 Hours an IWD mod

Yep, I re-wrote the link to BG2 patches, but not all of it, it seems - will change the rest, thanks.

EDIT: Done.

The following links are very much dead.

> Home > Portraits > Portrait Sites

Atlasia's BG2 Custom Portait Gallery
http://www.freewebs.com/shadowrhapsody/port.html

Death Jester's Baldur's Gate Portraits
http://www.scifantasy.com/portraits/portraits.php

Defenders of the Dale
http://www.mv.com/ipusers/starfire/framed/dd_main.htm

Immort's House of Portraits
http://www.clandlan.net/lbci/

Les Portraits de Cassinus (French)
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/cassinus/ (replaced by a site about FLYING of all things!)

PhroXenGolds's Portraits
http://megaone.com/phroxengold/index.html

Also got a link that needs to be changed.

Defenders of the Faith
http://www.geocities.com/defender_of_faithuk/

I checked the Geocities revivals and they didn't have it, but the Wayback Machine does! http://web.archive.org/web/20091026234633/http://geocities.com/defender_of_faithuk/ While most of the portraits displayed are broken, the download links displayed on the main page still work.

my collection of small mods  listed as "mods by ab" are a dead link seeing as teambg.eu doesn't seem to exist any more and as far as I know they don't exist anywhere else to relink them so might as well drop them from the list.

Okay, all done(I hope), thank you all very much for the reporting. Should the links come back or if your(a general "your") mod moves to a different site, please, post here or submit a new listing to the modlist - I (or someone else) browse it from time to time. :)

It seems like the whole http://www.gilalion.com/ site is down. I'll wait for more info for a bit, then, as there're quite a few NPC mods out there - maybe the site will be back?
The CoM mirror for Netherin & Sillara's mods still works fine. Just checked.

Thank you, that's good news - I've updated the links to CoM NPC mods downloads/Fade forum, so they're working now.

The link for Ggib Eht Tweak Pack  is also dead (it links here http://gamingnerdsrus.com/forum/index.php?topic=123.0 ).

It is back up.

I was wondering if anyone with super powers on the modlist might have the time to change all gamingnerdsrus.com urls to gamingnerdsrus.co now?

I got my issues sorted out, but it cost me a URL letter as you can see.

Actually, I just started doing that, and then I realised they all have your e-mail and password, meaning you have admin privileges for these links - you can edit them yourself, if I'm not mistaken. So feel free.

Thank you, that should have been obvious (and for the three you corrected).

All changes have been submitted for approval, and I re-added the link for Ggib Eht Tweak Pack.

Edit: I also uploaded and re-added the Ease-of-use pack for BG1 - I hate missing mods...

been dead for a few days actually.  G3 has been having problems and as a result has been taken down till things can be properly fixed.  At least that's what I understand.

i think their 8th anniversary overhaul was why.  looking mighty fine now!
 
 this may be entirely unhelpful, but
 Home > Portraits > Portrait Sites > Baldur's Gate Ritratti
 leads to a page full of tiny icons whose links to download usable sizes all result in 404.

Thank you, that is indeed helpful, but I'm not sure what I should do here, because the portrait site is still online, it's just downloads that are inactive. So I think I'll leave it intact for the time being, and maybe someone else will correct me later. :)

actually only in part.  There were excessive problems with spambots posting content that was against the TOS with G3's hosting service.  G3 kept getting taken down due to that.  In the end the only solution was to upgrade the software, the fact that it coincided with the 8th anniversary was in all honesty coincidental but made for better headlines than  "G3 back with new look after massive battle with spambots"  Tho I wouldn't mind seeing a pitched battle between 3 gibberlings and a wave of robotic cans of spam  :P

Thanks, fixed. No backward compatibility for SHS forums, then? I mean, the topic is there, but because of the different name "old link" is dead. That's weird.
