NWN EE, haks, 2das and utils

Let's say I only have NWN EE. How do I create/modify haks? Where are the 2das? Where are the utils that NWN Diamond comes with?

I have both versions of the game, in addition to several copies on CD lol, but I can't find these functions in NWN EE.

From what I read, you get everything that you currently get with NWN Diamond, so you get the toolset as well. 

It's more like a bunch of tweaks on NWN Diamond than a whole new product.

You're saying that I have it, so where is it then? Which folder does the BeamDog installer put it?

I'm having the same issue. When I open up the base_2da.bif with NWNexplorer, I see a bunch of .2da files but their names are completely different, although the content looks the same. I'm can create haks with .2da files from the 1.69 version and they load just fine. But how to I compare the EE files with 1.69?!? And how does the game recognize the old .2da? It's a real head scratcher.

Right, and going forward what if they make changes to the .2da files to fix bugs or do whatever?

As far as I know, the only officially supported tools (other than nwtoolset.exe) are the commandline ones: https://github.com/niv/neverwinter_utils.nim - this is what they used to compile/pack the game resources. Community tools can/should be built on top of these.

Most of the old community tools should still work (GFF and ERF formats didn't change), and the ones that don't, but have source available (like the nwnexplorer) will be ported over soon.

The game originally came with tools to create/modify haks. I'm not talking about community made tools, I'm talking about tools that came with the original versionof the game.

I don't see them in the BD distribution, but I'm guessing they'll put them up for download somewhere eventually. They are still usable (format didn't change). However, I doubt they will be supported/enhanced. The commandline tools above are the supported ones.

I’m still using Diamond’s nwhak in EE with no problems (as expected). I haven’t tried any of the others yet.
