I know I'm being rather silent, but I'm still here. And even though I should be a retired modder right now, I still work. I hope to give you 2 NPC mods soon, so I could focus on my more intriguing projects. So yeah, there is a reason why you should check the site from time to time, hehe.
And finally the site got a decent update. I hope you like the new style. Along with the New Year comes the new look and some new projects - some already released and some I just started.
So, some time ago I coded and released a wonderful project I was happy to co-create. Along with Artastrophe, we released PaintBG. Obviously she is the artist responsible for the portraits, I just gave her some feedback and coded the mod so it worked with all the platforms. The mod itself includes portraits for BG1 and BG2 characters, as well as some portraits for PC. It is hosted along with other mods at SHS.
Another project I helped with, was Sarevok Friendship. I coded it for a really talented modder - Aeryn. As you may have guessed, the mod introduce some ToB talks with Sarevok.
After a long time, I also added InfinityKits to the list, coded by Emphasis.
I also dropped a project - no longer I work on The Blue Witch. I hope to offer you some other projects though.
I started working on The Foundling - a new NPC mod with a quest, for those who really like quests. Who is this...Foundling, huh? You shall see! All I can tell you is that he is bound with one of the in-game dragons. I think you can guess which one. It was not his decision, though.
It is also possible that you will got a new quest mod - The Purple Splinter - but it may take some time.
Meanwhile, I made a huge progress in finishing Gahesh NPC and released updated versions of: ISNF (CoI mini-quest), Eilistraees Song, TotDG, Innershade.
As in the post title. I'm really busy lately, but I still remember that I should spend some time on my projects. I needed a break, so I've decided to rewrite Quayle BG2 mod! Now it's more than twice as big as it was, but before it can be released, it needs some proofreading.
What's more, I'm quite close to finishing Gahesh NPC. It just needs some polishing, the proofreading process was finished some time ago. However, there is a problem - I can't find any voice actor... well...
Apart from these two, I've been working on the quest mod I promissed to write, I'm working with a really splendid artist on a new portrait mod + I'm helping K'aeloree with another NPC mod!
That's a lot of work...
I'm not sure if you'll be happy, but I got really determined to provide a half-orc companion, so I worked mostly on Gahesh NPC. I got like 270 kb of dialogues right now and I still need to write some. It's for both SoA and ToB (keep in mind that he joins in Brynnlaw, so they will be a bit less dialogues than usual). The portion for SoA is written and coded, ToB is being written. I should finish writing and coding in 2 weeks, but then I'll need time to provide a decent proofreading etc.
I may be a bit less active due to my RL issues - like writing my thesis - but I still try to work on my project. I have spent some time on MotSC (TWM), but not only that. I also made some progress in finishing up "I shall never forget" mod and Tsuki BG2.
Now you can download the beta at SHS forums. It's an open beta, but it won't change very much if everything works fine.
However, if you are playing a gnome, a dwarf or a halfling, you may like the character!
Have you heard of Petsy Chattertone? She's a halfling bard, who's looking for some work. She's a faux-pas girl, nice and playful, however she has some difficulties when it comes to speaking about love etc.
To finish up the project, I need a help of skilled editor. English isn't my first language, so... huh... there may be some mistakes in the text. It was proofread once, but dialogues need some more polishing.
Project includes like 300 kb of dialogues + some item description and journal entries.
If you've got some spare time you would like to spend helping me, let me know!
Yeah, I know... some people may be annoyed with the delay, but it's not my fault, really! Hopefully, your patience will be rewarded!
Meanwhile, I tried to fix some bugs in Petsy NPC! Yes, the progress is little, but still - it's not a standstill!
Sorry I make you wait. That's due to some stuff going on at SHS. They needs some time, but worry not! I'm still here and I remember about the promise I made.
I mentioned that something new is almost here. There's a small delay because of Uni practice I'm having and the fact I was ill. Eh, I still haven't fully recovered, but at least I'm able to do something else than lying in bed!
So, please - be patient! I'm still here, I'm doing my best to provide BG fans some interesting stuff!
