Version 1.0

Known Issues (associated with patch 1.69)

Modules need to run under Neverwinter Nights version 1.69; however the modules do not support horse riding/combat. The modules still allow the receiving of the player skin ‘PC Properties.' In Chapter 3, at one point in the game, the player will be stripped of all belongings. The player is unequipped and then the entire inventory is taken-‘PC Properties' should still be equipped on the player. The script for OnModuleLoad has been updated to ‘x3_mod_def_load,' and the OnHeartbeat script ‘x3_mod_def_hb' has been enabled.

If PC Properties is removed from the player character, bugs are introduced.

Players who choose a pre-generated character will be affected by this issue in different ways. Those characters created by Bioware pre-expansion and for the expansions will not be able to ride horses at all without the OnClientEnter script ‘x3_mod_def_enter' (the skin will be given either by resting, entering the module, or by changing weapons through the toolbar).

Paladin characters that have access to the level 5 feat ‘Summon Mount' can still use the ability. However if the paladin character was rolled pre-expansion or for the expansions, the character will not have the ‘Mount Actions' feat and not be able to ride their summoned mount after ‘PC Properties' is removed. Please note that for paladin characters without the ‘Mount Actions' feat; if the player is still mounted when ‘PC Properties' is removed, they cannot get off the horse and rest (unless the player gets killed and chooses to respawn).

Players who roll a character in NWN 1.69 will receive the ‘Mount Actions' feat.
