Anyone ever thought of it?

I play Neverwinter Nights a lot and a friend of mine designs modules for it. Recently I've been thinking "Has anyone ever thought of making a Spiderweb Mod?" such as the Avernum map for an NWN module. I think it could be big since NWN's hak packs and modiblity would allow such things as horses, new spells etc etc.

Just a thought but I'd certainly play.

Kinda reminds me of the old "If you won a million dollars" threads.

I have just realised I have reached 200 posts. The problem is I have absolutely no idea how I made them!

This topic has happened before. Granted, it digressed very quickly into the merits of Wikipedia, but the conclusion was that it would take way too long.

My first reaction was that SW community efforts would be better spent on more (and richer) BOA scenarios, but it could put a bug in NWN'ers who like the mod and bring some of them here to try a real SW game. :)

I asked about an Ultima Blades of Avernum mod, but the response was similar: "too time consuming".

Maybe I'll try my hand at a BOA scenario. Back when I was a pre-teen I spent all sorts of time building games for Adventure Construction Set for the Commodore 64. I made a decent one called "Adepts Revenge" based on the characters from Archon II: Adept. Hmmm, my skills may be a bit rusty.

Go for it. It's a little difficult at first, but everyone in the community is here to help.

A short NWN campaign is definitely feasible. A longer one, not so much, as there won't be any community support to speak of. I can't see any reason why not, especially if your friend is an experienced designer already. Legal problems, perhaps?

Must... resist... shameless... plug...

Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

Seriously, get your friend to use ScriptEase if he/she isn't already (click the picture; it's hotlinked). It's much faster, and the default CodePak is large enough now that you can create an entire module without touching NWNScript once.
