Hello all,

 

This is a new place with just the germ of a user group. I just wondered who is here yet.

I'm PJ156 as the tag says and mostly I mod from the toolset rather than play, script or develop custom content.

If you're a player then great but if you add anything into the game or are prepared to play test collaborate or otherwise, this might be a good opportunity to shout out.

My parents couldn't quite agree what to name my little brother, so he ended up Thomas Jefferson Adlai Stevenson Hayward.

Glad I was named after an emperor (edit: and a conqueror) :-)

Well, that one is actually Rolan' de Kipp pen Han (Rolan, favored (or last living) son of the House of Han); where Rolan XXV was the emperor who started (or at least is blamed for) the Fall of Man and the hundred year Plague of Demons. I didn't say he was a *glorious* emperor :-P In fact, carrying his name earned me more than a few lumps as a wee brat.

Rolan the first was, of course, more naturally called Rolan the Conqueror.

In another universe entirely, I am Charles William :-) Same sort of deal ;-P

Hello prey. I am a certfiably sane but slightly eccentric Brit. Much to my surprise I have ended up creating more custom content than either scripts or modules. You may know me from such things as the ivory mouse trap gambit and the incredible shrinking maps. Must go brush the imaginary dust from my top-hat. Chow.

Hello, another brit here :)

 

I was recently made aware of this noble endeavour to backup the vault when I was asked to have my module backed up here. I'll try and chip in when I can. Much of my NWN time goes into a Middle Earth module series im working on for NWN2.

 

Thanks for your help so far, hope to get to know members of the community better

merricksdad

I am the one true Merricksdad. I used to be more, but now I am only slightly more than Merricksdad, which is not at all a bad deal for me.

In my free time, I tend to tell everybody fantasic stories of what I used to create for NWN, occasionally make a new model or set of models, and do a lot of research into new uses for model structures and textures. Other than that, I've offered people a lot of my old stuff and I can't seem to come up with time or energy enough to dig out the larger bits and compile them. A lot of that is because I am more interested in making new stuff.

One day, this site shall contain all my glory! Either that or Merrick will inherit it and have to upload it himself.

I also create public reusable javascript libraries and am basically redoing "visual javascript" with features similar to silverlight.

Baaleos

Hi All,

Im Jonny (Baaleos)

Im from the not so Sunny United Kingdom.

 

I've been the Administrator, Host, Builder and Scripter of Worlds of Rhun, a somewhat medium popular Persistent World with a small group of regular players who stick together in a close knit community.

Worlds of Rhun is around 6 years old or so, and I remember when I started hosting it, I had no clue how to script or program, and 6 years later im a computer programmer for a Software Consultancy Firm, own several websites, and am now starting to get into the Server Hosting business providing cheap servers to the community.

If anyones interested in Rhun or the server hosting. Gimme a buz.

Greetings from my chaotic little corner of creation! Hey, now you can finally see what I actually look like, now that I have my photo posted here. *Giggle* One odd thing about the old Vault I noticed tonight, it seems to be down or something. I went there to look through the winter tilesets so I could find one suitable for a Game of Thrones module I've been building just for the heck of it, and I noticed the site just takes me to a white screen that reads: "The Web Address you Entered Could Not be Found" which was pretty strange since it's like always been there since time immemorial... or at the very least since the game came out. Lol. Any idea what's going on with that or when we can expect it to be accessible again? I tried to find the winter tilesets here, but I don't think everything's been migrated yet because I didn't see them when I searched. I love this new site, by the way, it's awesome! And is wicked easy to use, too, I must say.

True Chaos is not Anarchy, but boundless Creativity with no limitations imposed upon it!

verilazic

Hi, I'm new here.

Been playing NWN1 since it came out. Stopped for a few years here and there, but always found myself coming back. Tried my hand at building, but was too casual about it to actually make anything worth while. Lately I've been more focused about it, and I'm actually pretty decent at scripting now, though I still need to improve my writing skills, and learn more about haks.

Until nwvault blew up, I was content to lurk and slowly learn. Now... I have a different perspective. This place won't endure without a strong community supporting it, and care enough to try to be part of this community. I hope that didn't come off as emotionless. I'll relax as I get more comfortable with my surroundings.

My module interests include rogue themes, excellent dialogue, and sandbox/open-ended traits. As a builder (and a player), I'm a fan of having as many options as possible (read: merge-haks), clever script systems, and immersive behavior. I also like to bike, cook, and read. I hear long walks on the beach are nice, as are dark and stormy nights.

Oh, and I used to be a full time anti-troll forum troll on a certain random hostile game forum several years ago.

CQ, do. You know which files/projects you want? I might be willing to bump requested content up if someone (especially of your proven creativity) needs it quick. Pm me here if you want and I'll see what I can put up this weekend without sidetracking the migration.

Hi,

I am a relatively new NWN1 module builder, late to the scene because I was too young to know anything about scripting (or writing?) when I first played NWN. I am a student of computer science, and struggling with university because I'm so lazy. blush

BigfootNZ
BigfootNZ's picture

Well given its nearing the 3 day mark (for me) the vaults been inaccessible id say its possible well and truly taken the final dive. Last time this happened it was down for about 2 days but at least we had some one saying something about it being simply a technical issue.

Im BigfootNZ, was around in the early days of NWN1 mostly as a member of CODI, you might know me from such models as the Aracnist Robes, Savage Shields hakpak, Elemental Grues, BigfootNZ's Iuon Stones, The CODi Yagnaloth, Two old Hivers, Hive kid, Osyluth and I also did one of the Meenlocks models (that we originally all did as a timing and efficiency exercise in 1 week when trying out for working on one of the premium modules for Bioware)... As you can tell im a 3d modeler, but i also can script decently and ive managed to come up with quite a few unorthodox systems in NWN1 and NWN2, although none of them ive published since a number of em (ie pretty much most of em) I got beaten to the bunch with in that regard :( although there are still a few things ive figured out that ive yet to see people do in NWN1/2 ...

Im also a 2d artist (although getting rusty) and have tried my hand at custom gui for nwn2, my last project thats currently on hiatus is a new more cinematic conversation dialogue window (ie the old nwn1 style) gui, ive also been slowly (say 4+ years) been working on a total rewrite/cleanup (you'd be surprised at how much rubbish is in the OC 2das) and update of the NWN2 TLK and 2das with new text formating, proper descriptions and missing PnP content added or old OC material changed to be more PnP where I can, that particular project is getting close to completion and ive only got some tiding up to do and a rewrite of the spells.2da and the scripting to do for it (which is actually pretty big work, but its easier than the mind numbing crossreferencing and info digging, also rebooted it at least twice the last 3 years...).

Ive been very inactive in the community the last 5 years or so but i often read the Bioware forums and also (used to) visited the old vault every day or so. So for me to see the old vault simply vanish like that is quite a blow, even with its drastically slowed down status the last year.

So thats me, its good that Rolo and ilk managed to have the foresight to do what they did when they did it sicne we cant loose this stuff no matter how old it is. The new vault looks good and once its got everything it'll be hopefully just like the old one only better.

Oh and im often long winded...

 

edit:- heh no animated avatars i guess :( oh well

 

edit2:- and no saving returns as well... whoops.

Berliad

Hi all.  I'm Berliad.  I used to be active in the vault review guild, and was involved in designing the nwn2 voting scale (sorry in advance) and the establishing the Overlooked Module Report.  I also used to maintain an old module list for nwn1 modules called the Hero's Path list on the old bioware forums.  

And I originally made the FRW Character Creator for NWN2, which did make the Hall of Fame.  I eventually passed that module over to ladydesire, who made another update or two before disappearing...I've been thinking lately about updating it a bit and releasing a new version.

In any case, I just wanted to say that I'm here and sort of active as a player.  I'm really glad that Rolo and the others have gotten this off the ground.  I don't have a lot of time, but I'm willing to help out in small ways if I can...

Long time player of NWN1 which my computer lost and moved to NWN2 which I prefer and get back to every chance I can.

I'm an analyst and tech editor when I can get work so I'm willing to look at things that need testing and proof reading.

I have plenty of bandwidth but not a a lot of time right now.  I'll check back in a couple of weeks when my schedule should be a little more clear and see if you still need help with file migration.

Great to see this up! Especially since the fall of the vault let the community down.

Relatively new builder - about halfway through resurrecting a PW I'd found on the vault - Oupost - got it working and plan is to add content over the next year, so it is a DMable sandbox with a good quest set (currently just a sandbox with a handful of quests). Will do my best to contribute here!

Just dropping in a hello to everyone.  I think I wore out my copy of NWN1 over the years playing online on several persistant worlds.  (played 2 for about 5 minutes before I went back to 1)  Mostly a player here but I have designed a few small things and minor mods.  I usually just lurk but wanted to say hello.

Hello!  I've lurked for years playing a bunch of the single player mods and every couple of years I try (with no success so far) to make a module.  I was about to start my latest iteration of failure when I found that the vault had exploded.  Thanks for keeping this going!

 

I don't have much modding experience, but I have a decent computer background, so if I can help you with anything, just give me a task.

Hello. Thayan here. I picked up NWN1 in October of 2002 and basically haven't put it down since - despite my best efforts to try and get into NWN2 which resulted in mostly disappointment for me. I've designed three PWs since early 2004 and my current, and favorite, PW is Thay - Realm of the Red Wizards which has been running and been semi-regularily updated for the last 5+ years now. I've devoted tens of thousands of hours of my time to NWN, with no plans to stop anytime in the foreseeable future. :)

I've played and (mostly) built in NWN 1 on and off since about 2003. Building a world is extremely interesting and fun to me, and has always been more fun than actually playing the game. I'm really good at making areas - some of the stuff I've made is in my signature.

I've been working on the Demiplane local vault server since about 2006 with my brother, which I'm most proud of. We worked on it in 1-2 month spurts, the burnouts lasting a year or more, haha. We might work on it again soon. To us, the server is mostly a creative canvas. We don't actively DM it. Anyone is welcome to check it out.

It's unfortunate that there have been no new games in the last 10 years which boast both a toolset and server hosting support. The list is small.. a few FPS's and Minecraft. Perhaps there will be a decent one someday, but until then I'll stay with NWN for the 1-2 months per year that I build :]

Thanks for saving the vault and its data.. combined, people easily put hundreds of thousands of hours of work into all of that stuff! Regards, OJ

Thanks for making this sight for us to use! Even though the Old Vault is back on line, I do like the idea of having this kind of an alternative. Plus this one feels more modern, and not so rickety like the IGN place....  I've owned NWN1 since 2003 and still have my original CD's. I created a module that is NSFW to say the least back in 2012 called The Wink and Kiss. It is my only venture into modding, and achieved HoF pretty quickly.  I still play occasionally and like to keep up with whats new on the vault.

Tchos

Hello, all.  I'm here as well.  I'm Tchos.

I started late with the Neverwinter Nights games for numerous reasons, and I've only been playing and modding these games since the summer of 2011 (about 2 years ago, now).  Of the two, I prefer NWN2.  Despite its flaws, I consider it one of the very few best games for modding and playing party-based RPGs, and I love its scripting ability more and more every time I use it.

I've released a few mods for NWN2, with more in progress.  I've made mods for Neverwinter Nights 2, Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Dragon Age: Origins, and Planescape: Torment.  I'm a great fan of the Infinity Engine games, which I experienced for the first time in the summer of 2010.

List of my mods.

I'm also active on the forums of BSN in the NWN2 section, and the Nexus.

Hi!

I totally forgot to post here. I'm not really a modder (though I am proficient in the basics of creating a functioning mod) but I do a fair bit of writing and I'm a veteran pen & paper player and DM, so if anyone needs any help with backstory/characters/npcs and things like that, I'm quite willing to help. Other than that I'm just an enthustiastic player. I've played both Neverwinter Nights games pretty much continuously since their respective releases.

I'm willing to act as a guinea pig for your mods or projects, so just throw me a line if you need a test subject. I'm also open for any multiplayer get-togethers that may come up. Keep in mind that I live in Sweden though, so we might be in radically different time zones. :)

etrigone

'Etrigone' is a handle I've used for a while, slight mod to an earlier pre-web handle. Kind of an old fogey, I date back to an era when AD&D was 'new'. Still attend one P&P convention but generally I only have time for what I do now - get together with folks online (some far away) about once a week for a handful of hours. NWN gives us a flashback to the time when we dreamed of this kind of thing.

Much past that I wish I could do. I mucked about with the toolset some; I'm part engineer/programmer by trade, but life didn't seem to allow sufficient time to do much. Sadly I remain mostly a lurker, although as I mentioned in another thread I intend to help out here in a meta-fashion (paypal, maybe hosting space or related if needed; one of my work hats is datacenter manager).

Greetings to you all,

 

I humbly request to all epic heroes of this hallowed forum to undego an adventure in my very first module to this precious vault, "Mercenary Wars."

I know standards have been raised high from the custom made module like "A Dance With Rogues"  to the official campaign "Hordes Of the Underdark."

I hope people bear with my very limited skills with the Aurora as it was a epic journey for me to bring forth my own saga for all to embark upon.

If this is the wrong place for me to post, would anyone be courteous enough to tell me where I can seek worthy warriors to enter my realm of Neverwinter?

Qlippoth here,

   Been playing NWN1 on and off since before it was released. I did some testing for Atari/Infogramme before the release and have been hooked ever since. Fiddling with Deva Winblood's NPC Activities and his Lair Addon, as well as the enhancements (Pathways) created by PK Busby for what is basically NPC Activites 6.2.

  Going to try to make a simple battle that spans multiple areas using this system for some warfare type module. Also to be used for such battles in a Dwarf-centric story module I've been kicking around in my head. Someday... When I have time...

I've dabbled with everything from module creation to making cowboy hats and a western buildings to make a western module... I'm not that good at a lot of things.. though, I think I'm good with realistic dialogue. I helped host and produce a bunch of NWNPodcasts and my Jack and the Beanstalk module was a blast, though I've never put up the final version with voices and music. ... putting a "house" in the BouncyRock Halloween module was a highlight as well.

Now I'm getting my 6th grade boy and some of his friends into NWN1 and one seems interested in making modules and even creating content. Before that I hadn't started up NWN for some time... though I've never conciously taken a break... it's just how real life has made things.

I miss NWN and am glad to be firing it up again.

Hello Folks

 Was away from the NWN1 community for a while, was still working on models and such for the game till both of the computers died in a heat wave.

 My NWN1 passion is ambient NPC's, and I can get a bit over board about trying to bring them to life in game. To that end I've yet to see a bed in the game I won't try to put a walkmesh on. I figure they have to have a place to sleep and make little npc's.

 Anyhow... (waves) Good to see ya all again!

 And glad to see some new faces in the crowd.

 Maybe the pathfinding is broken on the tile, but my theory is she's beating her head against the wall because I added that last line to her dialog!

I figured it was time I posted on this thread too. I was on the old Bioware forums under the same name, and I'm primarily interested in the single player side of NWN1, with a little interest in NWN2. Back when the games first came out, both my husband and I regularly played together, along with a handful of friends, but I'm the only one still playing now, my husband having been bitten by the cosplaying/costuming bug.

Both my husband and I have worked in renaissance fair jousting as squires, and are both pretty knowledgeable about many connected subjects (arms and armor through history, and the medieval period as a whole). I also have a keen interest in the natural world, with a particular passion for everything to do with horses, hawks, eagles and falcons, and it's these passions that are informing my choices on custom content creation.

I'm dabbling in tileset reskinning/expansion at the moment, and still planning on finishing a couple of outstanding projects inspired by the Custom Content Challenge (my lilypad bridges, for example), but I'm also working on reskinning and reanimating creatures, creating placeables, and ultimately, in creating entirely new content. Besides all that, I'm a hobbyist artist and writer with more than ten years of RPG gaming behind me, which has really given me a lot to draw on in writing my own modules. I only got started on creating custom content for NWN within the last year, but I feel like I'm making a lot of progress, in great part due to the helpfulness of the folks behind this site :)

I've just discovered the NEW NWVault & I'm excited about it!  I've made a few Prefab Areas, a couple Hak Paks, and some 2da fun-ness.  I'm currently in the process of transferring my content from the old vault, over here.

Several of my Hak Paks are being combined for the sake of convenience (example: my Loadscreen packs and Item Icon packs).

I'm mostly a Prefab Area Mapper & I plan on doing more maps soon.  I have several new ones that I intend on uploading as soon as possible.

Remember... don't forget to vote on everybody's content that you examine/use.  Feedback helps people improve and it can motivate designers to make more content.

 

Peace friends!!
