Just got this reinstalled again, getting ready for a DW Cun Rogue playthrough; Leaving all those locked chests in the early part of the game drove me nuts on my DW Warrior.

Yeah I went back to all of them I could, but you can't go back to Ostagar or the Korcari Wilds.

Edit: Can't get back to Lothering either.

Most of the locked chests have bunk items in them anyways, I don't think your missing out on much.

Yeah those early game chests aren't much to fret over, I just feel like I haven't really completed everything I can unless I open them though.

Easy fix.

Lock Bash

Its a very common sense mod. If you are a adventurer wandering around with a myriad of weapons on your person and you come across a lock chest you can't pick are you just going to leave it? Hell no. You take your two-handed maul and smash the **** out of that chest. Even has a variable where you can lose items in the chest because of possible damage done with the weapon.

I actually picked this mod up since my last post, haven't made a char to give it a good testing yet though.

Thinking I may drop the Rouge in favor of another Warrior; All that backstabbing stuff is an annoyance, I prefer just running up and stabbity stab stabbing stuff.

Sounds basically how Neverwinter Nights 2 handled chests. I remember the original Neverwinter Nights allowed you to bash chests open without any penalty, but I always thought that was unfair to rogues who had to learn open lock.

So I installed the JB textures linked earlier in the thread and thought it would be good to let people know that some of the textures look fantastic.

And some of them look... pretty horrible.

I'm debating if it is worth keeping the new textures or not. Many textures are much sharper and more detailed, but some stick out and are definitely bad, almost like the normal maps are inverted or wrong. Grainy, overly contrasted.

I did install all of the packs, and it is mainly floor and wall textures I'm noticing. But I'm in a dungeon and haven't made it out to check the terrain yet.

This is my favorite game ever. Completely surpassed Chrono Trigger. And... I always miss the ageless sword every time, and always accidently save before I realize it.
