Custom Content Challenge - May 2021 : Baldur’s Gate and Offspring Revisited

Custom Content Challenge - May 2021 : Baldur’s Gate and Offspring

The theme for this month’s challenge: “Baldur’s Gate and Offspring”

Content from the beloved games of the past, be it the Baldur’s Gate Series, the Icewind Dale Series or Planescape: Torment. Help recreate some of the nostalgic flair of the incredible artwork of the best RPG games that captured our imagination for hours on end.

This theme was suggested by Snugglehoof.

Guidelines:

  • It must be fully working in game.
  • Use of vanilla NWN or publicly available texture is fine. Just remember that NWN textures must have dimensions in powers of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.).
  • Teamwork is welcome.
  • Beginners most welcome. Don’t be afraid, just try, you’ll be surprised!
  • “Custom Content” includes many sorts of things: models, scripts, prefabs (areas, items, creatures, conversations, quests, etc.), sounds, portraits, or anything else new for the game.
  • All submissions must be finished, working, and emailed to ** nwvaultccchallenge@gmail.com** (or a non-Vault link provided) by June 1st, 2021. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. :wink:

Some things you could include in the download/email that would make packaging everything up easier and faster:

  • 2da lines needed.
  • Screenshot from in game for use on the Vault page. Formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, or .tga
  • Portraits (if needed) of your new goodie. Placeables and monsters should include a portrait.
  • Inventory icons (if needed) of your new goodie.
  • Any credits you would like listed.

If this is your first entry, please tell me what name you would like your work listed under and provide a link to your other NWN content if you want that displayed as well (the link bit is totally optional).
Remember, the Challenge is all about fun, sharing, creativity, and surprise!

This thread is for all sorts of discussion about this month’s theme: ideas for things to make, questions/concerns, announcement of what you intend to make, screenshots of work in progress and/or finished projects.

When submitting a new theme, please provide a title and short summary of the theme.

If you have a technical question about some custom content creation, please create a separate thread so that the answers can be found later by anyone, not just people interested in this Challenge.

We’ll try to help!

Have no fear and join the fun!

Just to get things rolling… Alpha version Drizzt… (I’m making the whole companions group)
I remade a female head I had and put a masculine texture on it

@Stonehammer Looking good. What you are doing doesn’t seem to have been done the last time the ccc visited Baldur’s Gate.

As this is the second visit to Baldur’s Gate it might be an idea to review what was released in the first visit and see if you are duplicating what has already been done unless of course you think you can do it better…

FYI this - Custom Content Challenge: April 2016: Baldur’s Gate and Offspring - was the first visit. So while there is a holdable Boo in it there was no Minsc…

TR

Maybe it would help to name it “Baldur’s Gate and Offspring 2” to clearly indicate (and thereby remind everyone) that this theme has been partially tackled before?

Nah, decided on “Revisited” instead :smile_cat:

TR

So many things I would like to do, Once I have Wulfgar I can probably copy him as Minsc with a different head (so Boo wont be lonely). Maybe I can put a hat on a Drizzt copy and turn it into Jarlaxle. The main thing is, I want to keep the model aesthetics and color scheme from the Bardur’s Gate games (BG2 in particular, I have almost perfected the miniskirt pelvis)… Irenicus and Bodhi (with ghoul anims)… so many possibilities… for now I will focus on the Companions ( Drizzt, Bruenor, Wulfgar, Cattie-brie, Regis)

I’ve decided to offer Candlekeep as a prefab for anyone to use by making use of the new tilesets and regular placeables (no haks). There will also be no NPCs or quests - just the area either to explore or add to a PW, or future module.

One week left. Any updates anyone?

TR

Just 2 days left. How’s it going guys?

TR

I got carried away making the heads book accurate.(Regis and Wulfgar are still in progress)
The outfits pictured still need updating (gloves, boots, a shirt and pants texture for Cattie-brie)
probably going to play around with scaling (Catti-brie will 95% human scale and Wulfgar will be 110% since he’s supposed to be tall)
Overall I am still on track for the 31st since its a holiday here. ( the american kind)

Here’s the current complete Companions set.
Still a lot of tweaks in terms of armor and scaling and Regis will have to be fatter,
but this is what they will look like

Nice banners. I don’t suppose they have anything to do with the theme, do they :innocent:.

Recieved and uploaded here.

Hello

May I ask if there is somewhere an overview over all CCC’s with the content? This would make searching for stuff easier…

I even have a thread where I announce each update release of the catalogue. I try to keep it completely up to date even when there are only a small number of things added.
