Prelude to a MAJOR Update.
« on: May 26, 2005, 12:26:00 pm »
Okay this will be my thread updating the changes coming soon and give you folks a head start.

To start, Layonara now supports over 250 new heads.  These will be included in the next update. However, in order to be able to select these heads at character creation you will have to download a seperate heads archive for your override folder.

You will NOT need to download this archive to see the players with the new heads.  It is only if you wish to use one when you create a character. The heads will be in a hak update I'll talk about soon.

Instructions if you wish to be able to select a new head at character creation:

1. Download http://orth.ca/heads.rar (21MB)
2. Backup your Neverwinter Nights override folder
3. Extract all files in the archive's heads directory directly into the Neverwinter Nights override
4. You will now see the new heads when you create a character.

If the extraction wants to overwrite any existing files, I'd highly recommend you do that to ensure compatibility with the heads that all players are seeing in Layonara and to fix any ones that might be buggy and updated.  (Also why I suggest you backup)

Oh and before anyone asks, no we will not be LETOing characters to change their heads, unless there is some Character Development or a CDQ reason for so.

That's it for now.

none of the heads that characters currently have will be affected by this will they?

Don't think so, I'll correct any of course if they do, but it shouldn't...

Oh nice, now we can actually see both Ausir and Orn. I wonder which of them is the closer one.

Now if we could just get them to the sky at the same time...

The first one isnt a new skybox is it?  Unless theres something different on it that isnt in the screenshot I've seen that one.

and by the way... in that first photo... does it look like Atlas is naked barring his scabbard? or is it just me?

    Looks brilliant!

    Will the pot-bellied pig be wild or domestic?

    Now you only need a huge Balor, put it on that tileset, and we've got ourselves our own Lotr. ^_^

      We do have a huge Balrog (Balors are the standard DnD creatures) model... not saying anymore than that though ^_^
