Description *Updated 09/02/19 with Shadow Greyscale Shader*

This workshop item contains a number of override files to help play the Arelith Persistent World Server. The files are optional, but fix some inconsistencies between the client default settings and changes made to the server.

Shadow Greyscale:
Four of the game's default 8186 shaders have been edited to allow Arelith to force the rendering of the game in certain areas to render without color. This, combined with Arelith scripts, ensure that this colorless gameplay only happens in Shadow Plane areas.

However, due to the restrictions of how shaders are invoked, without these Arelith scripts, gameplay on other servers and single player modules may result in greyscale if the fog color for the area is black. If you intend to play single player or on another server with black fog color areas, it is recommended that you temporarily unsubscribe to this package, play Neverwinter Nights without Steam (launching the nwmain.exe in bin/win32 directly) or ignore the greyscale effect in inappropriate places.

Encumbrance values have been changed on Arelith. With this override you will see the new encumbrance maximums, but without it, you will still be affected as per the server's changes. The weight allowance displayed in the inventory screen, however, will be incorrect.

Harper Scout:
Available Harper Scout feats have been changed. On Arelith, the Harper Scout prestige class has been modified to provide several optional "path" subclasses, each providing unique benefits. One of them provides the use of divine might and divine shield, but those feats cannot be used by the player without this override.

Spears on Arelith have been adjusted to be one-handed weapons, and their damage values have been modified to reflect this. Tridents have also been modified. With this override you will be able to "quickslot" a spear and a shield in the Function Key quickbar. Without it, the spear and the shield must be "quickslotted" individually.

Tab Glow:
Arelith uses extensive "Tail Scaling" to create different sizes of creatures models. However, the "TAB" tool tip glow will highlight inaccurate sizes of the creature model, which can be disorienting. This override prevents tool tip glow from appearing for those creatures.

Placeable Reskins:
Arelith has several placeables created with visual effects applied to them. Some of these placeables do not have assigned environment maps (for transparency), which causes "shiny" parts of the replacement texture to instead become transparent. This override adjusts some of those placebles so that they show reflections as intended.

Arelith Fixes
Several missing or malfunctioning base game files have been replaced. Currently, the most noticeable of these would be the missing cloaks during horse riding, which, with this override, have been restored.

Arelith Graphics Overrides
Colorized Quivers, and HD Weapon Textures, formerly contained in this override, are now a part of the Arelith Graphics Overrides:
Arelith Graphics Overrides
Arelith Graphics Overrides (Testing)
Arelith Graphics Overrides (Developer)
Please subscribe to these workshop items for those visual overrides.

Arelith Collection:
This Steam Workshop item is part of the Arelith Collection, a set of optional downloads designed to accompany the game data for playing on the Arelith server. Since these files are stored in in the override folder, they can be overwritten by other workshop items with the same overrides, or hak contents with the same files. Additionally, these files may affect gameplay on non-Arelith servers, as well as offline gameplay. For dedicated installation, please visit the Neverwinter Vault[] to install the "Patch Hak" version of these overrides.

For questions, please post to the Arelith Forums[].
