  • Portraits-Portraits-Everywhere

    Portraits Portraits Everywhere (PPE)

  • Portraits portraits everwhere. Note that it uses portraits from other games (including POE) which may be slightly jarring at times. Overall I like it a lot though.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • A7-HiddenGameplayOptions

    A mod that makes a number of useful options directly accessible within Enhanced Edition games.

  • Hidden Gameplay Tweaks. Then enable it through the in-game menu.

  • EEUITweaks

    Distribution point for EEUITweaks

  • I use EEUITweaks for this, specifically the "lefreut journal fixes [collapsed]" component. There are other UI mods that do similar things but this is the one I've used and liked.

  • BG1NPC

    The BG1 NPC Project adds a great deal of content by expanding the depth of character and levels of interaction with the NPCs from the Baldur's Gate game. Requires Tutu, BGT, or BGEE.

  • If you're expecting the kind of party banter and interjections you got from your listed games, I will suggest the BG1 NPC Project. https://www.gibberlings3.net/mods/npcs/bg1npc/ Otherwise a lot of party members will join and then pretty much never speak up again.

  • JaheiraRecast

    This mod reconnects Jaheira's SoD voiceover files to the dialog lines and gives Jaheira's soundset an SoD update like the other returning NPCs.
