Creature models are any simple non-parts based models. For the parts-based phenotypes see Overhaul Phenotypes.

Since there are so many creatures subpages of this main page will be used to classify/screenshot/source art replacements.

The base game contains what seems to be 493 models for creatures, although some won't be revamped much if at all (eg Horses, new Ossian models, things essentially supplanted by better Phenotype models like random NPCs...).

appearance.2da changes

Existing creatures:

  • Some fixes will be worthwhile (eg creature size, Halfling weapon scaling by a little, some creatures with heads don't "follow" which could be enabled)
  • Need to investigate the envmap setting and how it affects creatures and when to remove it when moving to PBR
  • Some minor improvements to labels/STRING_REF columns for the toolset;
    • 2x Drider should be "Drider, Male" and "Drider, Female"
    • 3x "Troglodyte" could be more descriptive (at least 1, 2, 3)
    • Human subtypes:
      • Begger
      • Child, Male and Child, Female
      • "Female 1 - 4" "Male 1 - 5", although there are already clashing names (sad)
      • House Guard, Innkeeper, Shopkeeper,
      • Neverwinter Militia Member
      • Old Man, Old Woman
      • Plague Victim
      • Prostitute 1, 2
    • PLCs being named just "Thing" like "Flame" (3 variants), "Magic Sparks" (8 variants)
      • Possibly prefix these and any others with "PLC" too?

New creatures:

  • Need to decide a range of IDs to use for new creature appearances
  • Do we prefix the appearance names? Might be a good way to make them easier to find. "OP - " perhaps for new ones.

Palette Changes

The palette file for Creatures is a bit of a mess, unchanged since 1.0 of NWN.

Several categories could be added to more reliably reflect the categorisations.

Some ideas:

  • Monsters
    • Animal - Add Aquatic, Horse, Farm Animal, Snake
    • Humanoid - Add Hobgoblins, Tanarukk, Stinger, Gnoll sections
    • Dragon - Possibly split into age categories, or types.
    • Planar - Add Formian
    • Undead - Add Lich, Curst, Vampire and possibly others. Man NWN has a lot of undead
  • NPCs
    • Campaign - Add campaign NPC appearances, portraits and good blueprint stats.
      • Wailing Death - Henchmen level 1 variants for LevelUpHenchman could also be added
      • Shadows of Unrentide
      • Hordes of the Underdark
      • Premium Modules
  • Special
    • Custom 6 etc.
