This mod changes the plain and grey vanilla spell scroll icons in colourful images on a scroll background.

Tchos' Colour Scroll Icons might be one of the most underrated little mods out there. A very simple idea: change the plain and grey scroll icons into colourful ones, resembling the matching spell much more closely, allowing you to easily distinguish between them. Plus, it's always nice to have a more colourful inventory screen. I've been enjoying this mod thoroughly ever since I found it!

With this mod, however, you could not distinguish spells from scrolls anymore, as they all got the same icon. Granted, this was not a big problem, since you don't have spells in your inventory - but just for completion sake, or for people like me who tend to put spell scrolls in the action bar, I felt something was missing. In vanilla, you have a little scroll image in the corner of the icon. I decided to build on that idea and created these icons, reminiscent of the scrolls in the old classics like BG and IWD. I used the original spell icons (also the icons Tchos used for the scrolls) and put them on a cute little scroll background.

I intended these for personal use. However, I am pretty proud of how they turned out and it is certainly an added value to my game, so I decided to upload them here - after getting permission from Tchos, of course.

To install, just extract the contents in your NWN 2 override folder (usually in "My Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2"). As it just replaces the existing scroll icons in the game, the only mod it should conflict with is, of course, the original one from Tchos. Every scroll icon should be covered, but if there are any missing or there are any other problems, please let me know!
