Time to share back. Near 800 mb worth of overriting files I've collected and "forced" to work together over the years (compressed to 143 mb for the sake of downloading). Screenshots are going to give some idea of what's included. Please note that I don't use override files that just changes something, but use the ones that changes something for the better (But I respect the effort nevertheless, I'm picky not snobby).
I did not made or took part in the making of any work compiled here. All the credit is due to following authors except some .2da merging and some minor fixes made by myself. I also edited portaits.2da and soundset.2da to permit acces to all portraits and soundsets by gender (those which make sense, so no chair or throne portraits). Also "genderless" soundsets are added to male side mostly.
Anything above was taken from the following Creature Override Compilation by Cervantes35 if was available. Also below are the remodels I fail to find original vault sources and gather from Cervantes35's compilation
Ettin by Ziroc
Ogres by DLA
Trolls by Diademus
Troll by Mr. Furious
Mindflayer Venerator by CODI
Ulitharid by CODI
KNOWN ISSUES - CEP trolls (ones only killed by fire or acid) may lose animations. Move the files c_ogreA.mdl c_ogreA.tga c_ogreB.mdl c_ogreB.tga out of override folder if that happens (removing files reverts ogre A and B models back to bioware default)
CEP 2 Heads by Ioryo Includes CEP 1.5 heads as well.
KNOWN ISSUES - Be aware that using those heads online will make you look headless to anyone that does not have the override unless the module server runs uses CEP hakpak. Also 14 of the male human/half-elf heads show up with metallic texture but that's a rather insignificant number.
Xaltar's Head and Underwear packs by Xaltar I included only the body (in underwear) remodels and not the heads. I also "fixed" corrupt animation for tattooed female torso by removing relevant files and reverting back to default bioware tattooed female torso.
New Weapon_VFXes by DeathFace (RestlessKnight) KNOWN ISSUES - I "fixed" the acid effect bug by removing relevant files and reverting back to default bioware acid effect. Still my .mdl editing skills are not enough and there's a bug that prevents schytes from having electric effect (effect only, not weapon property).
I can understand that some may find above GUIs and the merge I made obstructive, if that is the case I suggest you download the merged GUI file from the Files section to get its files to help remove them from the override and use the GUI at the link below instead
Semitransparent chat and party bars by jen
Menu background featuring the latest NWN wallpaper by Bioware. As can be seen by its crudeness, this is crafted by me, but I sort of like and use it. gui_pre_bknd1.tga and gui_pre_bknd2.tga are the relevant files.

2 things... 1. This is pretty cool for newer nwn players, it's got nearly all the overrides I've personally added in over the years myself. 2. If you look at WoW addon sites like Curse.com, there are things called 'addon packs' which would be a cool type of thing to see here, you don't need author permissions, just assemble your favorite group of overrides into 1 package, all automatically metalinked. If you had to make modifications you would need a 'diff-pack' that would have to go in after all the overrides in order to tweak things to work well together. _________________________ ---
Hahahaha! No, I didn't mean "YOU" were a dilemma, Sixesthrice, I just named the "dilemma after you; by this, I mean there are authors who would like their work to be left "as is", undisturbed in terms of modification, out of other's compilations, or simply would like to have a polite request.
For example, I recently suggested Chico to add your canopies from Wildlands and Snowy Wildlands into his NWNCQ, but he mentioned he would respect your wishes and not include them in place of Lord of Wormz's.
Yes, I can understand one being sensitive about having his/her work used in a compilation. My aim with that pack was not only to pack up the best overrides of the vault but also deliver them working together. I know people, as I used to be, downloading good stuff from the vault but gets to discard some of them because he/she can not have them all working together.
Also yes, it was impolite not to ask for permission but I beg to be understood with emphaty. Nearly 20 authors' work is included most of whom are long gone from the nwn community. I've seen many packs and compilations none of which says a thing about consent, so I thought giving links to original works for credits should suffice. I credited Cervantes' compilation only because it includes some remodels that's even extinct (ettin by ziroc) or modified only there (DLA ogres). I shall rearrange my credit links and give links to each work seperately.
So, if it leads to uncomfort for any author I'd rearrange or remove the compilation. I'd take no offence and hope I've inflicted none.
While I have no problem with my undead and weapons being up here. It might've been nice to link to the original pages instead of just Cervantes' compilation, and it was a bit impolite not to ask, maybe, but I'm not going to complain. I wasn't aware I was a 'dilemma' either - I guess you learn something new every day. Actually I thought I'd consented to your request a long time ago, Jedijax, but now I look back I at my post it seems I never actually gave you an answer.
Anyway, looks like there's a nice collection of different stuffs here. Haven't tried your set out myself, but I have quite a few of these lying around in override myself - good choices. _________________________ --- What can Q do for you? --- Undead Redux 2 | Wild Woods Tileset
I thought I was following the nwn community but somehow must've missed that. What is limited with what dilemma? I know sixesthrice (_six_six_six_) from his submissions on the vault. Is it wrong to give links to the authors I have compiled creations of?
Is it possible to do this without author consent? The reason I have not released my heavily modified NWN is because none of its upgrades are mine, save for model mixes, animation fixes, and texture editions. Isn't this limited by the "Sixesthrice" dilemma?
