Hello there. I've been a huge fan of BG2 for years, and today I bit the bullet and bought BG:EE and BG2:EE. I was a bit overwhelmed by the changes from the vanilla versions, but I was very happy to see all of the mods that are covered by EET. Since this is both my first time dealing with BG and the EE editions, I was hoping to ask a few quick questions before I try and decide what all I want to install.
1. Do I need to install the DLC Merger before EET to make SoD modded along with BG? I know that SoD files were kept separate from the main BG game, and that a thread on Beamdog said a merger was needed to make the two compatible with mods.
2. Is there a pause between downloading mods and installing mods with EET, since I was looking to add some custom portraits to some companions.
3. What happens to mods who have been moved to a different site? As I was going down the compatibility list, I found the links were leading me to the old PocketPlane and Lava's Scriptorium sites. I wasn't sure if this affected EET or not.
Thank you for your time and any insight you could provide, and congrats on all your hard work throughout the years.
