HELLO EVERYONE; I’m Ignacio, BGR Team’s newest resident minion. I’m making this my first post/update to bring you some news:
Recently fearless leader Drew passed me the torch to be your guide to all things Shadows of Amn Reloaded as we slowly but steadily approach the day you’ve all been waiting for.
Rest assured the team is working against the clock to meet the release deadline: which is somewhere before 2021 ends. There’s not a set month nor week nor day. Unfortunately, life happens and schedule conflicts arise. If things get so complicated to the point the mod needs to be pushed to 2022, then let this be the first warning, however, trust us when we tell you: nobody wants to finish this more than us and as soon as possible.
As the Team’s 2D Designer, I’ve spent the last year making content to enhance the overall presentation of the mod, especially near cities with signs, posters, and quality of life content, also the newly designed loading screens (around 200+) and chapter intervals, a fully HD digitally painted World Map of Amn and Tethyr, the new world map GUI and map transition FX, a fully designed Nexus page and full color 40+ pages long Adventure Guide, icons, new animated intro, and video remaster, and also a few gifts for you.
Know that in the last year, SOAR enlisted the talent of international artists who either donated or participated with their creative vision to bring some new ideas to life, even if inconsequential to the game, but crucial to the immersion of the world, I contacted most of them to join my little artistic crusade to bring the mod to an eye-pleasing extravaganza.
And that’s not all; we also have an orchestral rendition of Baldur’s Gate 2 main theme by a very talented musician and the collaboration of some BG2 covers to enhance the already magnificent soundtrack the game has, everything will be revealed in due time.
Also, as soon as I get my hands on some more finished content I’ll start making the gameplay trailer I’m owing you.
As time progresses I may show you a sneak peek of some of it.
All of this while Peter and Bob are bringing near to identical rendition of the original BG2 maps!
In the meantime, Drew is finishing the quest lines of Windspear Hills, so you know that means a certain giant lizard is getting some love at the moment.
Finally, Shallina, BGR Team’s Lead Scripter, has been doing wonders with the game code and advancing as fast as he can while also working on a little something for our dear old Baldur’s Gate Reloaded as well.
I’ll let him take it from here.
Thank you for your patience!
