Weimer's classic mod changes Solaufein into a joinable NPC for BG2EE and ToB. Revised EE version. (by RoxanneSHS)


Imports more Siege of Dragonspear items into logical (to me at least) locations in BG2:EE during the Shadows of Amn campaign. They are attainable in a variety of ways – quest rewards, drops from enemies killed, shops, and containers. (by Gibberlings3)

  • Why aren't there good longbows in BG2?
    2 projects | | 24 Feb 2023
    There already are plenty of mods for this. SoD2BG2 does a bit, bringing IWD longbows like Sseth into BG2 (basically a longbow Tuigan), and an upgrade to the SoD Bow of the Banshee (+4, 20% chance of 4d4 damage party-safe banshee wail on hit). The Item Upgrade Mod has Teleomortis, a +4 infinite ammo bow (it also has throwing spears, which are cool). It also lets you upgrade the ToB infinite quivers to +3, which helps slings/xbows/shortbows as well, but is still useful to longbows.

  • A quick taste of NearInfinity
    2 projects | | 21 Jan 2022
    Couple of ways. The way I'd recommend would be SOD2BG2, which covers all the additions as well. Failing that, you can open up the items using NearInfinity set to SoD's chitin.key, then File->Export the ITM file for it somewhere you know of. Then, you can add that ITM file into your Override folder for BG2.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Solaufein and SoD-to-BG2EE-Item-Upgrade you can also consider the following projects:

EE-Mod-Setup - A Tool for automated mod installations on EET, BG2EE, BGEE etc

ProjectInfinity - Project Infinity - a mod manager for Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition, Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition and Enhanced Edition Trilogy (EET).

EET - Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Trilogy (EET) is a modification for Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition that merges whole saga into one game and provides continuity between the events of Baldur's Gate, Tales of the Sword Coast, Shadows of Amn, Throne of Bhaal and Siege of Dragonspear expansion (also for both Black Pits adventures). The name of this this modification probably rings a bell to those who have been following IE modding scene, thanks to the classic mod that inspired this project, called Baldur's Gate Trilogy (BGT), developed by Bardez and Ascension64. While EET remains mostly faithful to the premise of the BGT, it shouldn't be considered a direct continuation of that project. In fact both mods share little to no common code and took different design decisions in many aspects.

NTotSC - NTotSC v2.x.y for BGT, BG:EE, and EET

SwordCoastStratagems - Sword Coast Stratagems (SCS) adds over 130 optional components to Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, Baldur's Gate Trilogy, mostly focused around improving monster AI and encounter difficulties, but also including cosmetic and ease-of-use components, tweaks to abilities or spells.

Tweaks-Anthology - The Tweaks Anthology is a WeiDU compilation of nearly 200 components of cosmetic changes, house rules, and other tweaks. Some of these were fan requests, others are needed changes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only which ones they wish to install.

Item_Upgrade - The Item Upgrade Mod Pack allows Cromwell and Cespenar to upgrade more items for you. Half of them are conveniences, the other half try to prop up weapon categories that are "weak" by comparison (e.g., maces and clubs).
