Some words

It's my first mod on Nexus and I have to dig into a lot of files to cherry-pick game objects. So please be patient. :)
I'm quite limited for request, some issues are Larian's one and something like SearchTheRoom is relying on script, something I have no knowledge in right now.

If you want to contact me I'm on discord : hash0000
(Don't spam me, please :D)

Huge thanks to ShinyHobo, without his wonderful tool this mod couldn't exist.

What this mod do :

- 19 modules, letting you customize your highlight with what you want
(Hatches and doors not yet available)

- All in one Edition
(Merge of all modules excepted the Wanderer, Collector, Secret, Trap, and SearchForBlood a special request)

- Loose planks, breakable walls and a lot more highlights (Secret Edition)
- Coffin/Sarcophagus highlight (Coffin Edition)
- Wall climb highlight (Wanderer Edition)
- Rows of books and library highlight (Library Edition)
- Furniture containers highlight (Furniture Edition)
- Highlight valuable wines (Alcohol Edition)
- Highlight valuable items like paintings and seashells (Collector Edition)
(for now all paintings, need more insights on valuable ones)

- Change the color of lever, button, specific action (English and French localization)

- Highlight containers missing in the vanilla tooltip (crates, barrels, burlap sack, vase, etc...)
(Depending on the chosen Edition, vases, crates, barrels, burlap sack are in separate Editions)

- Less performance heavy than other highlight mods
(Only the necessary files are modified, the majority of the highlight mods apply 3 or 4 times the same parameter to one object, this one applies it only to the parent files which then apply the parameter to the children. Example : Vases is only one file in this mod, reducing the load on your alt input)

What this mod doesn't do :

- Highlight everything

What is planned :

- Add a Foodie module (removing useless food like carrots)
- Further improvement
- Change the color of hidden/secret items to purple

How to report items shown or missing :

I would like to have a track of items missing or to add (containers/valuables/hidden/important), so for this reason, give me their name in the BUGS section and try to keep things organized, even if I try to have all of this on my computer already.

Recommended mods to use with :

- Hide looted containers + custom toggle
(Unfortunately no longer available, but you can download as optional files on the page of my mod)

- BetterLoot
(Giving you more loot and less empty containers, not tested yet, but compatible)

Installation : 

Use BG3 Mod manager, not tested with Vortex but should work. Use Mod fixer at launch of a new game or after only if you encounter issues.
Drop the .pak file in your mod folder (C:\Users\*you*\AppData\Local\Larian Studios\Baldur's Gate 3\Mods)
Refresh mod manager.
Save the load order.

Uninstallation :

Like most mods, remove the file.
You can safely remove the mod on an ongoing save.

Compatibility :

Should be compatible with all mods, except those that change containers properties or level files for items.
Working for me with more than 50 mods.

Known issues :

- Waiting your feedback

Suggested features

- Add a toggle which trigger for one quick Alt input and also keep the vanilla hold input
