The modders at Circle of Eight, the Temple of Elemental Evil fansite, have released version 5.0.0 of their fixpack, availible for download here, with release notes here. Here's some of that.
What is it?I wonder how long before someone mods in NPC romances? Then again, I'm only halfway through the release notes...
The Verbo-mod (short for â€œVerbobonc modâ€) is an expansion to the original Temple of Elemental Evil game; it adds a new area to explore using ToEEâ€™s already existing (and hardly used) maps. With 6 new quests, 5 new traders, 6 new monsters, and a new NPC race (sort of).
How do I get to the new content?
Access to the Verbo-mod is NOT handled on the world map, I was hoping to get the worldmap working, but was unable to hack the relevant file. Access to the new location is currently handled by dialogue, there are a limited number of visits to Verbobonc available as when you travel to Verbobonc, the NPC who gave you the option to go to Verbobonc will go with you as an NPC, and then dismiss themselves upon arrival; this means there is an ever decreasing number of visits available, so use them wisely.
What can I expect?
Intrigue, plot twists, a few surprises here and there, a shopkeeper who is extremely difficult to gain access to (but well worth the effort), I donâ€™t want to give away any spoilers but assistance for this mod as with any mod will be available at www.co8.org
Thanks to Crichton for the heads up.
