Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update

 

Welcome back to the Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update. This week's update will be a little on the short side and delayed due to workload. Because of this I am adding a little secret surprise at the bottom of the page. I think it may be well worth the wait.

 

 

Patch 1.06 Released as Beta

On Monday we released the 1.06 patch as a beta to the community. It contains a lot of fixes and new features for the builders in the community, chief among them the addition of the terrain undo functionality. With this undo capability, you now have five levels of undo when working with terrain sculpting, texturing, water and grass.

 

Other things you may find range from script additions for builders and DMs to a nice little toolset feature that allows you to create a blueprint out of a spawned in creature in the toolset. Slowly but surely, we are getting there.

 

You can find the discussion for the patch here

 

Journey to the Underdark

Many of us have been watching Botumys' progress over the last few months as he worked on some Drow Cave settings and objects. Well, it looks like his work has made its way over to the vault. You can check it out here, in the blueprint prefab section of the vault. Oh yeah, here's a little picture of it as well.

Secret Surprise

So, the contents of this 3 MB RAR file you will need to download might give you a smile, or it might not. Based on your requests, we are working on something - in fact the object of the video is a work in progress - and I just wanted to show you that we are listening to you. The video was smuggled out of our development labs by a crack team of gnomish commandos, so the quality isn't that great, but I think you will get the picture. There are many more things in the works... this is only one of them. You will need FRAPS to view the video (http://www.fraps.com/download.php).

 

So, here's the file: Surprise

 

You can also try this link, if the first one doesn't work for you. Thanks to one of our IRC friends for the link.

 

Well, I need to bring this week's update to a close. I will try to bring you a larger update next week. Have fun.

I think that what we need to view .avi surprise is not FRAPS (Fraps is just a program to "capture" videos from an application)... instead, you should link decorder drivers you used to compress the video.

[i really don't know if this is a readable English, sorry]

FRAPS works well enough, just install it and you can watch the video in windows media player.

Thanks for the update Rob. You know, it is the addition of things like that very nice sneaking/stalking animation that really are getting me excited about the future of this game. A sneaking animation is not, strictly speaking, a necessary thing (then again, I suppose from a far enough perspective a -=video game=- is far from a necessary thing too. =) ), but man, it really adds to the game. Thanks for sharing that with us.

 

By the way, I am always checking this blog, and I was starting to wonder when Tuesday had fled, and no update. It was worth the wait though.

 

Regards,

JFK

May be my version is too old?

I've got Fraps 2.6.1 build 4901 Retail and it doesn't work.

May as well give a shot in updating your FRAPS, the version linked is 2.8.2

Wow, really nice to see stuff like this happening :woot: .

 

Btw, do you take suggestions? If it was me, I'd make the guy step first on his toes and then on his heel, I think it'd look more graceful and stealthy ;) .
