October 13, 2014: Baldur's Gate II Tweak Pack v16 Available for Download

September 25, 2014: G3 Celebrates a Belated 11th Anniversary

G3 celebrated its 11th anniversary on September 18th. To celebrate, we're releasing three new mods--BG1 Romantic Encounters, Vynd, and NPC Strongholds--and have updates for nine others.

Vynd NPC Now Available!

Glam Vrock debuts Vynd, a Drow Assassin, recruitable at the Burning Wizard inn in Beregost. Though evil in alignment, he will not complain or leave due to reputation. Vynd includes a dialogue track with the player character consisting of 20 talks, banters with all Bioware NPCs (including the four Enhanced Edition newcomers), numerous interjections and extensive player-initiated dialogue. Learn more about Vynd on his project page or readme, download the mod, or join us on the forums.

NPC Strongholds v1 Released

Kish's latest mod is NPC Strongholds, now debuting v1. In Baldur’s Gate II, the PC can, after doing one of the quests, acquire a stronghold, depending on her/his class. However, none of the NPCs who join you get strongholds. This mod changes that, making it so that the NPCs in your party can also acquire strongholds. Check out the project page, forum, or readme for more information, or download it.

Baldur's Gate Romantic Encounters Now Available

jastey and her expansive team of coders and writers have been hard at work producing a Baldur's Gate (BG, Tutu, BGT, BGEE) version of the popular Romantic Encounters mod, adding several encounters and quests all over the game. For BG1RE, not every component deals with the PC trying to sneak into someone's pants or vice versa. BG1RE aims at populating BG1 with romantic encounters, intense dialogues, unexpected private dinners, romantic traces of long lost times, and real quests that all deal with true love, fulfilled or unfulfilled. It also offers encounters for the PC's quick relief, of course, with either paid companions or willing strangers. For some encounters, the female PC should brush herself, as it might be she comes out flustered if she doesn't stop in time. More information can be found on the project page or readme. Join us on the forums or head straight to the downloads page.

BG1 Tweaks v5 Now Available

Converted from the Icewind Dale and BG2 Tweak packs, BG1 Tweaks is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks. Some of these were fan requests, others are needed fixes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Version 5 features a new Sensible Entrance Point component and fixes a bug with ankheg armor in the breakable armor component. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only those components they wish to install.
