Really? The game uses that much?

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Mon Nov 12, 2012 1:57 pm

Just a random thought. I didn't realize that Aenea uses so much potential custom content. I meant to get my kid up and running in Aenea yesterday. Installed NWN & the expansions, updated to 1.69, got a unique CD key from gog.com, installed GUI overrides and tileset overrides (helvene's rural trees)...forgot to copy over the CEP and Aenea files. Rolling Eyes

Between CEP and the Aenea haks, it was 6.67 GB (uncompressed). Plus another 22 MB for the dialog.tlk and aenea.tlk files. I guess it just doesn't seem like that much if it's been ages since one downloaded/decompressed all of that.

I copy over the module file to the server all the time, but that's "only" 103 MB. pirat

Heh! Yeppers, that's why we have a small player base, but also why we have such a concentration of awesome players!

What's this?

More on topic: I could work on a unified installer if that was desired (for windows)... Not sure about including the critical rebuild to 1.69 though...

Probably not necessary. CEP is widely used, so most folks would have that installed already. The Aenea files get updated all the time (usually at least once every two months). An installer probably wouldn't be able to be kept up to date, which would just be frustrating for both myself and players.

Used Worldgate for quite a while, but it kept messing up on transferring a few files, so I just dropped it and went back to straight up hak updates. Simplicity is better.

Do you use the other two tileset overrides by the same author?

Do you run anything else that isn't listed on the Aenea downloads page?

The winter rural one is part of the Aenea haks, I believe, rather than an optional override.

Any other modifications besides this one? That is not already part of the Aenea downloads?

Nope. The only overrides I use are my various GUI ones and helvene's rural trees. Everything else I've ever wanted to update has gone into the Aenea haks.
