SHS: Yeslick BG2 v2.0 is now out!

Today, 09:07 AM

Wait, is that a Dwarven Sunday? Perhaps it is! Just after the release of Korgan Friendship comes the next important release - Yeslick BG2(EE) update is now here.


The original mod by great modders of SHS - Pixel Kaiser and K'aeloree - is now updated with ToB content but not just that. From now on the mod should also work just fine on new versions of the game - BG2EE and EET. Other changes: minor fixes, traification, banters with EE NPCs, Wilson dialogue fix and some additional proofreading.


About the character:


When asked about his past, Yeslick chuckles grimly. "There ain't nothin' there ye be wantin' to know, young 'un. Trust me." From what you have gleaned, Yeslick is peculiar for a dwarf; a follower of Vergadain, the Dwarven god of wealth and luck and Clangeddin, Dwarven god of war, he is an unassuming companion with an aversion to alcohol and the undead. You know little about his history beyond that he grew up in the Dales to the north and that heat makes him extremely irritable.


Version 2.0 team: Lava Del'Vortel, Rhaella and Artemius_I.





If you missed the first dwarven mod released on the "Dwarven Sunday" - Korgan Friendship - check the announcement here.

SHS: Korgan Friendship available

Today, 03:18 AM

We are happy to announce that Korgan Friendship (NPC IEP) is now available. Even though Korgan may not be the cuddle type, he surely knows how to swing his thing. Axe, that is. All who ever joined that mad dwarf know that already. Now he will also talk to you a bit more. If you buy him a drink, obviously. The mod offers both SoA and ToB talks, but to get most of them, you will need to have more than just drink with that mad berserker!


Mod authors and supporters: Lava Del'Vortel (writer and coder), fluke13 (editor, additional writing), Rhaella (consultation) and Kaeloree (consultation).

The mod should work on both BG2 and BG2EE.

SHS: AG: Ooze's Lounge v1.1 available

27 June 2018 - 04:35 AM

Even though that Ooze's Lounge was released just some time ago, it already got it's first translation. The mod is now available in Chinese (thanks to merzbau). The mod also includes minor English language fixes (typos, mostly), one journal entry fix and simplification of Vulab's dialogue to ensure it will work better on non-EE version of the game. 


About the mod:

The mod introduces a brand new part of Athkatlan sewers. You may now use the originally inactive grate in Slums to enter a locked part of the sewers and discover its dark corners. The mod offers three new areas as well as a couple of mini-quests, new items and graphics. Gather your party and visit the Ooze's Lounge, a special place with spacial wares, locked from most commoners, yet opened for adventurers like yourself, Bhaalspawn. Ooze's Lounge is part of Athkatlan Grounds mod series.




SHS: Athkatlan Grounds - new mod series at SHS

19 June 2018 - 05:02 AM

I am happy to announce that new mod series is now available at Spellhold Studios. Athkatlan Grounds has a very specific aim - to make Athkatla, our well-konwn BG2 city more interesting by introducing new places, quests and encounters. Mods that are already released:

Southern Edge - this mod has already been available for a while. It introduces a brand new district with its own quest and characters, like Mairo Mudclapper: a halfling arcanist in need of some help in trackig down dangerous parasite hiding somewhere in the district.

Ooze's Lounge - that brand new mod adds a new part of sewers. It can be entered through the grate next to Jansen house... but you must first find the key lost somewhere in Athkatla. The mod adds new areas, mini-quests and some new, quite unusual merchants.

Both mods are available for both old BG2 and BG2EE, even though they were made with EE in mind.
