New “IE Modding Tools” forum and download category!
Sunday, September 13, 2009

In furtherance of some suggestions made by a number of modders here at SHS, we’ve deprecated the Infinity Xplorer 2008 forum into the larger IE Modding Tools forum, as well as created a new download category in the download manager for tools. Much like Miscellaneous Mods, any member can upload tools to the category. You can find the forum here, and the download category here.

I’d also like to point out that Miloch has released a tool called the “BAM Batcher”, created to make the process of creating and organising BAMs simpler. It is a very useful tool, so if you’re interested in BAM creation, go check it out!

Finally, I’ve added [Downloads] links to the Misc Mods, IE Modding Tools and Mod Resurrections forum descriptions for ease of downloading.

Cheers!
Liam/K’aeloree

Goodbye to Ascension64 from the Staff!
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Posted by K'aeloree in General News

After almost 2 years of hard work as a Staff member, legendary BGT modder Ascenion64 has decided to step down. As well as being a general moderator, Ascension64 ran the very successful IE Modding Digests, which are sadly now being retired. A huge thank you to him for spending the time every 2 weeks to put those together! :cheers:

Thanks for your dedication, hard work and all-around awesomeness, Asc, and all the best!

SHS welcomes Tales of the Deep Gardens quest mod!
Monday, August 3, 2009
Posted by K'aeloree in General News

A warm welcome to Lava Del’Vortel and his quest mod “Tales of the Deep Gardens”, an intriguing and mysterious addition to Baldur’s Gate II!

“The last thing you remember is a mage on the streets of Athkatla, the building of the Council of Six, the trees and mansions of the Goverment District. Now you feel only humid air and cold ground… You try to open your eyes, but you are not sure if your senses are to be believed. You are barely able to recognise shapes around you… Crooked trees, bantam buildings, colourful mists… Your head aches. It is impossible for you to focus… Suddenly, you realise something. You hear voices and footsteps… You are not alone in this unknown place.”

Tales of the Deep Gardens allows players to travel through a new land, deep under Faerun; a realm of mystery, dream, Colourful Essences and riddles. Talk to people who may not even see you, try to find the answers to obscure riddles, fight with Living Colours and gather 10 Colours to leave the Gardens. But remember, Dreamer, that this place is something more than just a chain of caves… It may be a Dream you’ll not want to wake up from…

Minor downtime earlier today
Monday, June 1, 2009
Posted by SConrad in General News

Hi all,

If you tried to access SHS earlier today, you probably recieved a page saying that the bandwidth limit had been reached. I have rectified this problem by raising the limit.

When SHS moved onto its own server, we were using around 300GB of bandwidth per month. As such, I set the bandwidth limit to 1TB, which seemed a reasonable amount for making sure we’d never run out. But ever since then, SHS has continued and continued to grow, and so far this year, we’ve averaged about 850GB per month. A few hours ago, the 1TB limit was exceeded for the first time in SHS history.

Some might say I should’ve been proactive and upped the limit when the bandwidth continued to grow every month, and they’d be right. I apologize for the inconvenience this downtime may have caused, and promise that it won’t happen again.

- Sebastian
