  • bg1ub

    Similar to its BG2 cousin, BG1 Unfinished Business ("BG1UB") is designed to restore many of the cut items, quests, dialog, and encounters from the game's final release, as well as try to tie up some of the "loose ends."

  • 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, calle

    EET The install process can be complicated, but this fundamentally changes the game; transforms BG1+SOD+BG2 into one gigantic epic experience where all of your equipment carries over and you can revisit locations. Highly recommended. This explains how to install it. If you decide to try EET, you will need the DLC Merger mod, mentioned and linked in that EET readme. If so, DLC Merger must be installed as your first mod.

  • DragonspearUI

    Dragonspear UI++, a UI mod for BG:EE (by anongit)

    Dragonspear UI++ (download the source code zip) There is another popular UI mod, but my *very strong preference* is Dragonspear UI++. If you're like me, and you don't care about nostalgia or purism at all, then this might be the mod for you. It overhauls BG's UI, modernizing it, and just looks *absolutely gorgeous*.

  • BG_Quests_And_Encounters

    Quest Mod for BG1(TotSC), Baldur's Gate Trilogy, Tutu, BG:EE, and EET

    BG mini quests and encounters Great mod that fleshes out the BG1 world; the content is 100% indistinguishable from base game content.

  • Banter_Pack

    Adds Banters to the BioWare NPCs of Baldur's Gate II!

    Banter Pack Adds companion banter that was sorely missing in BG1.

  • IEP_Extended_Banter

    The goal of this mod is to ensure that each Bioware NPC gets their fair share of banters with each other.

    IEP Extended Banters And even more great banter.

    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.

    BG1 NPC project Yet more dialogue and more fleshed-out companions in BG1 (in BG1, EE or otherwise, companions aren't as fleshed out as they are in BG2).
