About this mod

Increases the party limit to 16 members and multiplayer limit to 8 players!

Permissions and credits
Installation (Script Extender version):
  • Download and setup Baldurs Gate 3 Mod Manager. (Vortex might work aswell but be sure to have script extender installed)
  • In the mod manager go to tools and select: Download & Install the script extender and hit yes.
  • Download Party Limit Begone and drop the zip file in to your mod manager window.
  • Now go to file and select: Reload all. Then drag and drop Party Limit Begone mod in your list from the right side to the left, to active mods.
  • Go to file again and select: Save Order. That's it! Enjoy the game.

Installation (legacy, standalone version):
  • Download and unzip this mod.
  • Move the whole Mods folder in to your Baldurs Gate 3 Data folder. That's the game folder, not appdata.
  • That's it, enjoy the game! Note: Dismiss one party member if you already have 4, this will reset the party limit and set it to 16.

Multiplayer Installation:
  • First follow the mod installation up above. Then download the multiplayer patch and unzip it.
  • Drag and drop either your bg3.exe or bg3_dx11.exe file onto the PartyLimitBegonePatcher.bat file. It will create a backup for you.
  • That's it! Enjoy the game. Note: bg3.exe is used if vulkan is selected in the larian launcher and bg_dx11.exe if directx is selected instead.

  • In order to continue your multiplayer save with more than 4 players, create a new lobby, set your party size and start a new game. Then load your main save, this will carry over the player limit. Ingame sessions unfortunately don't allow you to tweak the settings.
  • Some ingame events are hardcoded for 4 party members and will glitch out. This is usually solved by either dismissing the additional members/players or by teleporting back and forth.
  • Stuck with just 5 players? Some users got it to work through lan mode, direct connection or by not using steam and launching the game directly.
  • Camp sleeping bug: Use one of the awake companions and talk to Lae'zel or reduce your party size to 4 before resting.
  • Grymforge Map transition: Reduce your party size to 4 members before sailing with the boat. If you already used it and your characters are stuck, dismiss the ones that are with you and sail back and forth to unstuck the rest. 
  • Note: After using the boat a timed quest is triggered and going to camp will progess it.

Linux and Mac support:
  • If you can't run the bg3 mod manager through wine there's a mac version available here:
  • Edit PartyLimitBegonePatcher.bat with any text editor and edit this line to your exe file name: 
  • Set "GetFileName=%~n1.exe" example: Set "GetFileName=bg3.exe"
  • Move your bg3 exe file into the same folder as the patcher and then run the bat file with wine.
  • This will not work with the native mac client, you must use the windows one.

Quick installation video guide (legacy, non script extender version):

Uninstall (legacy, non script extender version):
  • Delete the patched exe file and restore your backup.
  • Delete the Mods folder inside your Data folder, that's it.
