    Going to play Gothic II Gold (from GOG) for the first time. Downloading now from GOG. Do I need/should I install any other fixes, add-ons, quality of life fixes, etc. before I start? (I played the original Gothic over a decade ago it was good...about time I start this one since I"ve heard good things).

    Maybe the System Pack? It unlocks the fps and improves some technical aspects of the game.

    think outside the box, if you think of creative ways of taking on obstacles, try it.

    Gothic, while a bit buggy at times (but nothing important is bugged as far as I know and I finished it 10+ times), doesn't need anything. It's not Fallout:NV or Vampire:Bloodlines, vanilla is everything you will need.
    While mod scene is big(was?), there aren't really any mods worth mentioning.
    Just remember to save often and at least in 2 diffrent slots, not just one. It's only technical difficulty you should be aware of, it happens that save is corrupted.

    I recommended installing the Ironkeep Community Patch 2.10. It fixes bugs.

    Good to know: Don't eat the herbs called King's Sorrel, Goblinberry, or Dragon Root. Collect them for later.

    Enjoy!

    Is it crucial to play the first game for the story before getting into Gothic 2?

    Yes, characters return, you will visit area's from the previous game and it references the story.
    Gothic 1 has a great atmopshere, just get it with the system pack, it's really worth it.

    System Pack is all you need man. Game stability can be unpredictable without it.

    Just remember, nevermind what Oldcampers say, New Camp is the camp. Joni Odin von Hassenstein is an Old Camp fag and he's wrong.

    I would go a step further than most and say that any mods for G2 should be actively avoided. I've tried a number of them (inc. graphical mods) and there isn't a single one that doesn't massively fuck something up. G2+NotR is already one of the best games of all time, and needs no modification.

    As for the community patch, it's fine, though I do recall the last time I used it it actually introduced a bug that screwed up the Orcs' AI, making them super easy to kill. Not sure if that's still an issue.

    For G2 NOTR there are some fixes, system pack and playerkit. You should install them in the order from this link (scroll to the bottom): https://www.gamepressure.com/download.asp?ID=59101

    Excellent game ahead of you. I'm playing it for the 1st time too and I'm having a great time.

    If you want to be prestigious, true to tradition and a good man, you will want to join the Old Camp!

    This propaganda brought to you by Old Camp puppets, who also have bald avatars.
