Post by The Amethyst Dragon Mon Oct 11, 2010 12:31 am

Hi folks. Just posting a little shameless self-promotion for those builders, players, or visitors that haven't been involved with NWN for very long. There are some of us that have been making things available for others to use for quite some time, and I really think that custom content is one of the things that helps to keep this game going more than 15 years after it was released. This particular post contains links to NWN content I've made available over the years.

Players: Anything marked with #override can be used on your end to change play in most/all modules without a builder having to add the content for you.  Just put such files into your NWN/override folder and you're good to go.

The Amethyst Dragon's Shameless Self-Promotion:


Modules / Servers:

The World of Aenea PW Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- This is the big one. My persistent world, which has been online for over seven years now, and the reason I've taught myself to build, script, and model for NWN. 99% of what I make is for Aenea's players, and everything publicly released is only a sample of what has been made for them.



Neverwinter Nights Community Site - neverwinternights.info
- The unofficial homepage for NWN, created after BioWare shut down the official site.  Great info and links for current and potential players, DMs, module builders, and custom content makers.


Big Projects:

Community Expansion Pack (CEP) - versions 2.60 and later
- I've been updating the biggest collection of community-made content for builders and players since early 2014, with some help from the community.


GUI / Interface:

World of Aenea Transparent GUI Overhaul/Upgrade
Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- The override overhauls the game's GUI to make various windows transparent and add a little color to the game. And yes, I know I'm not the world's best speller, but I'm not going to change the title after so long. It does contain a world-specific NWN loading screen, but that is easily removed by those that desire it (it's the "loadlegal" files).
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/world-aenea-transparent-gui-overhaulupgrade #override

Feat & Ability Icons: Colorized Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Colorizes feat and ability icons that any PC might activate (or add to the quickbar).
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-feat-ability-icons #override

Radial Icons: Colorized
Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Colorizes the various radial menu icons.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-radial-icons #override

Class Icons: Colorized Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Colorizes the class icons.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-class-icons #override

1.69 Icons: Colorized Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Colorizes the icons added with the 1.69 patch.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-new-icons-169 #override

Emote Icons for NWN 1.69
Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Alters the emote icons, adding a picture and description to replace the default brown "star". No more mousing over an emote icon just to see which one it is.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-emote-icons-169 #override

Dungeon Master Icons: Colorized

- Colorizes DM client specific icons. I didn't want my fellow DMs to feel left out.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-dungeon-master-icons #override

Spell Icons: Colorized Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Colorizes all the default spell icons, making them much easier to use in-game.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-spell-icons-generation-1 #override

Complete GUI Alterations Package (Transparent and Colorized)
- Combines all the previous GUI changes into a single download for ease of use.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/complete-gui-alterations-package-transparent-and-colorized #override

Red Green Hitpoint Status Change
- Made in response to a posting on the older NWN BioWare boards, this alters the hitpoint status bar color of the GUI for those with certain color blindness so that it doesn't use red or green (or the brown that's a mix of the two).
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/red-green-hitpoint-status-change #override

Spell Icons: Colorized: Generation 2 Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- After 5 years, it was time for an upgrade to the colorized spell icons. I think this does the trick. Better coloration and some icons have been altered to better reflect their effects in-game (such as fireball and horrid wilting).
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/gui/colorized-spell-icons-generation-2 #override

No More Swirl at Character Creation
- This tiny texture override will hide the swirling fog that appears behind the character creation, server selection, and other windows.

http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/model/dd-classic-elementals #override

D&D Classic Gelatinous Cube
- An updated version of the classic "made for graph paper dungeons" critter.  Based on BioWare's gelatinous cube, it's colorless and more transparent. Good for hak or override folder.

Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15

Hooded Halfling Head as Helm
- Made by request, it's a helmet made from the hooded female halfling head model.


Placeables: Models:

Flowing Liquids v1.1
Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Based on a proof of concept by gaoneg, this provides two additional (slower) speeds of flowing water, then adds versions for green flowing slime and flowing black for using over glowing lava.

Mythallar Crystals
- This adds 112 new glowing "mythallar" crystal placeables, expanding on the 1 provided by BioWare. These are included in the latest version of the CEP.

The Amethyst Dragon's Merchant Signs
- Brand new hanging merchant sign (shingle) models, made to either be used on their own or as an easy replacement for the old ones found in the CEP.

Visual Effects (VFX): Models:

VFX Quivers & Arrows Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- Designed for builders, this includes visual effects models that can be used to add non-armor-based quivers and arrows to PCs. In my PW, PCs pick a quiver color and the module will automatically add arrows with a color based on the type of arrows equipped. Updated May 1, 2013!

Alternative Ki Strike VFX Overrides

- This set of models can be used to change the color of the visual effect that appears when a monk uses his or her Ki Strike in unarmed combat.
http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/visual-effect/alternative-ki-strike-vfx-overrides #override

New Weapon Visual Effects (VFX) - NWNCX

- 44 brand new weapon visuals for those using NWNCX (the Neverwinter Nights Client Extender)

Aenea Dragon Horn VFX
- Designed for builders, this collection includes head-aligned visual effects to match the traditional 10 types of dragons, helpful for making PCs and NPCs with dragon-like traits.

Costume VFX (head aligned)
- Made by community request.


Scripts & Prefabs:

Hat of Disguise Self-Promotion Thread Hof_85x15
- This prefab includes both an item and the scripting needed to bring the classic D&D item into your game. Also available is the old version that doesn't use the 1.69 patch's OnChat capability like version 2 does.

Wizard's Familiar

- This very basic prefab comes from the days when I'd just started scripting and learning about game balance. It's a dagger that becomes more powerful as the wizard using it does.

Cloak Exchanger / Updater for 1.68

- Probably no longer needed, this simply allows a PC the swap out a cloak for a new copy right from the game palette.

Clerical Spell Limitations Script

- This really basic script can be used to limit certain cleric spells to use by followers of a specific deity. This used to be used in my PW to limit heal to clerics of the goddess of healing and harm to clerics of the god of destruction.

Kill Counting Book

- This book is an item that records the names and numbers of the creatures you kill while carrying it.


Images: Portraits, Screenshots, Videos:


- A portrait designed to represent an ice-based wizard.


- A simple portrait, because I needed a generic fighter with a glowing green sword.

Snowball Fight!

- A screenshot of a scene that popped into my head as soon as BeyondThePale announced a winter theme screenshotshot contest. I used my snowball override and snowball fight demo module, watched invisibly in DM mode, then took a lot of screenshots until I got throwers in different positions. The only editing involved cropping to remove some empty sky and snow at the top and bottom.

The Wanderer's Portal

- A few screenshots showing the redesign of the ancient portals scattered across Aenea.

Magic Staff Overhaul
- In-game screenshots of Aeneas improved magical staff models.

Ioun Stones in Aenea
- This short video shows what happens with some modifications to models made by BigfootNZ, followed by scripting and conversation editing.


Images: Textures:

Reforged: Texture Pack for Model Makers

- Textures used for Project Reforged, released for other model makers to use in their own creations.


Multicategory: Items: Weapon Models & Inventory Icons & Placeable Models:


- Made in response to a question here on the BioWare boards, this little addition provides peasants and innkeepers something to use for cleaning up after adventurers.


Tilesets: Models:

Drow Interior Tileset Ceilings - TID01
- Adds ceilings for the entire Drow Interior tileset.

Roofs / Ceilings for Gestalt's Caverns (Add-On)
- For builders and players using Gestalt's Caverns pack (which adds lava and pit terrains to the basic mines tileset), this adds the ceilings from nwroofer's hak.



- A NPC concept (rather than a file), submitted after an article by BeyondThePale looking for such submissions.
