    Since the IWD:ToEE will be based on IWD:EE i decided to upgrade my version.

    A couple weeks ago I purchased IWD:EE from GOG, and i have been powering through it.

    For those that don't know -

    IWD:EE is basically a combination of this:
    • Icewind Dale
    • Heart of Winter Expansion (accessible in Kuldy if you are lvl-9 or higher)
    • Trials of the Luremaster (add-on to Heart of Winter) (accessible from within HoW - Lonelywood's tavern)
    • MOD: Unfinished Business (except Marketh's Ring quest)
    • MOD: Item Upgrades
    • MOD: Fixpack
    • Uses the BG2 UI (new classes, kits, additional spells and items, etc)

    Even though I am almost done with the IWD:EE game, I just learned something new... If you have GOG IWD:EE ver2.5.17.0 then you can activate the AoE markers for your spells. But I don't think it is limited to the GOG version.

    Go to your Documents -> Icewind Dale - Enchanced Edition folder and edit the Baldur.lua file

    locate the Show AOE setting and change it to 1:


    Here is a Fireball area:

    As noted above, I don't think this is limited to GOG versions, and it should work on BG:EE, too.

    If you have BG:EE and/or IWD:EE it is worth a try if you have a sufficiently new enough version. I've seen notes about it working in BG:EE v2.5.16 but you may need to add this line into the Baldur.lua file if it isn't in there already.

    Wow, cool to see this is still being worked on. I'm very sad right now that Realms Beyond is probably not going to be a thing, but I remembered that ToEE is probably the closest thing to it. And then I remembered that the was an IWDEE total conversion (I mod IWDEE), and here it is! So, I feel a bit better now. Thanks for that.
