    Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition by Flix

Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition (S2EE) is the continuation of my work on older mods such as the Community Patch, of which S2EE is meant to be the successor.  It is built on top of the Community Patch 1.60 so it requires that to be installed first.


S2EE contains hundreds of bugfixes, as well as numerous gameplay enhancements such as redesigned balance, quality-of-life improvements, and cosmetic changes.  Enemies are more challenging, quests are more rewarding, and items are more varied, unique, and useful.

This mod also features AI-Upscaled Textures that will work if the Elite Textures are installed. These all-new HD textures will be used for the DLC and expansion content which never received any official elite textures.


S2EE is designed for the player to install a single CORE module that contains the bulk of the changes. The player can then install some optional add-on modules.


Currently supported languages:
CORE Version:  English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Hungarian.
Alternate Spells:  English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.


Documentation:
Full Change Log - a comprehensive list of the most current changes compared to the base Community Patch, and the full list of modules and features.

Optional Modules:

  • Alternate Spells - Swap out several vanilla combat arts with new custom ones.
  • Challenge Mode - Significantly increased difficulty.
  • SuperSpawn - Increases enemy spawn count by 2-3x.
  • Enhanced Music - A game-wide expansion pack for all regional background music.
  • Portrait Overhaul - Revamps all the NPC and enemy icons with new artistic portraits with more character and personality.
  • Free-For-All Quests - Makes all quests available in all game modes, and allows all bosses to respawn each game session.
  • Classic Icons - Restores the aspect background and combat art icons to vanilla.
  • Classic Icons for Alt. Spells - Change the aspect background and combat art icons to the "classic" style.


=================================================
Installation:
  • I HIGHLY advise NEW CHARACTERS or you may have re-rolled items, broken quests and spells, or other odd behavior.
  • Download the Generic Mod Enabler (GME) and install it to your Sacred 2 root folder.
  • After running the GME once, it will make a folder called "MODS" there.
  • Extract/copy/move the contents of the compressed zip file into the "MODS" folder.  There should be 9 folders (the Docs folder need not be placed in the MODS folder).
  • S2EE contains one CORE module and eight optional add-on modules.  You must install "S2 CORE EE 3.1 - Required" at the very least.
  • Run the GME and enable the CORE module.  The GME will back up your clean files and will allow to you to easily enable/disable the mod as you wish.
  • - Optional - add-on modules should be installed afterward.  Do not install any of the add-on modules without the CORE module installed first.  Overwrite warnings are to be expected when you install the optional modules.

==================================================
Compatibility & Requirements:
  • This mod requires Sacred 2 + Ice & Blood expansion with the latest patch (2.65.02) installed (or simply Sacred 2 Gold).
  • This mod additionally requires that Community Patch 1.60 be installed.
  • No previous versions or components of the old Enhanced Spells should be installed.

  • Mods that are known to be compatible: Music Mods, Nude Mod, Interface Mods, Main Menu Mods, Reduced Fog, Elite Textures (either official or the unofficial "trimmed" version), and simple texture mods like Eye mod or Grass mod.
