NWN2 Game Update Version 1.06 Released!
That's right, the 1.06 game patch has been released. French-language users may have a little trouble downloading the patch. You can download the patch from the NWVault Official Patches page while we work on a fix. As always, we want to hear about any issues caused by the patch. You can let us know here, in the announcement thread on the Bioware forums.
We Have a Winner!
Congratulations to jclef, the winner of our first mod-making contest for NWN2. His module, Grimm Brigade, was a lot of fun to play and very original. But, I have to say, competition was pretty tough and the results were quite close. Second place goes to Maerduin for The Birthday and third place goes to Death Quaker for The Rampion Champion.
As I said, judging was quite difficult. We looked at a lot of different things: story, originality, polish, custom content, technique, fun factor and generally just how much effort seemed to go into the building of the modules. All of them were quite good. Some were confusing or didn't really follow the theme of the contest, so they received lower scores. But, overall I think the contest went well and the modules submitted were great!
jclef, you should be receiving a tarnished spoon, some Macaroni & Cheese and an old bit of pocket lint as your prize pretty soon. Oh yeah: it is being send C.O.D, so make sure you have $15.95 to cover the shipping expenses.
Fan Art Contest
So now it's time to announce the next contest!
With the fun we had with the mod-making contest, we thought we would hold a contest for the non-builders. The best one we could think of will be a Fan Art contest. This contest will go a little longer than the mod-making contest and there will be two main categories.
The first category is Your Favorite NWN2 Companion (Khelgar, Neeshka, etc.) or NPC (Lord Nasher, Wolf, etc.). The second category is Your Favorite Creature or Monster in NWN2.
All art must be two-dimensional and will be uploaded to NWVault. The exact location will be announced shortly in the NWN2 General Forums as will any size limitations or specifications. The rules are basically the same as for the mod-making contest. The deadline for entries will be July 31st at noon Pacific Time (GMT -8 hours ). All work must be your own original artwork. Artwork will be judged by Obsidian and the Community. Entrants are limited to a maximum of two pieces of artwork per category (4 pieces total). By entering, you are making your artwork available for Obsidian's and public use with NWN2 at no cost.
I can't wait to see the talent we have in the community!
I just saw this: TD Mephisto has some great bridges now on NWVault! You can check them out here.
That's about it for this week's update. Hope you found the information interesting.
