CEP weapons

Post by Taswombat on Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:05 pm

Just a simple query.

Is there an easy way to allow the use of CEP weapons with feats, focus and specialization etc

The simple answer: no

Weapon Focus and Weapon Specialization (and Weapon of Choice for the weapon master prestige class) are basically hardcoded in the game engine. New weapon item types do not get the benefit of those feats applying to them.

With quite a bit of work, you can add such feat choices, but they wouldn't really have any effect in-game. Additional custom scripting and workarounds would be needed (such as adding temporary attack/damage bonuses via scripting when such an item is equipped, and removing said bonuses when removed).

There are these on the NWVault but I have not used them myself.

CEP weapon script

CEP new weapons feats workaround

The down side of this is that these will count towards the +20 ceiling.


The other option that I've seen used is to modify the 2da to include them as the nearest existing weapon types.

How is this done? Is it just the Base Item 2da needing changed and would players require the change or is it just serverside?

Updated information. Smile

I've been using a NWNX2 plugin called nwnx_weapons, created by Terra_777 to allow CEP weapons to use the closest standard weapon feats (for Weapon Focus, Specialization, etc.).  It works very well on my Windows XP server.
