However, just to clarify, both the added content and pure restoration installations modify .2DA files. The difference between the two installations lies in their goals.
The added content installation installs a less "pure" restoration of Dustil. I felt that Dustil's storyline within the game was too short and too abrupt. Thus, I set out to add about 20-40 minutes of content for him. This content was designed to introduce and end his part within the game in a more, at least in my opinion, satisfactory way.
Yet I knew that some would rather have Dustil restored only to the point that Obsidian's vision, or at least close to it as I could get, allowed. That is why I made the pure restoration. It is similar to TSLRCM, in that it attempts to restore Dustil to the game with the least amount of non-Obsidian content added as possible, allowing for a more "pure" restoration of Dustil.
To sum it up, the pure installation is as close to Obsidian's left behind vision as possible. While the added content installation, takes liberties and adds non-Obsidian ideas and plots to resolve Dustil's part within the game.
yeah I just found the "hidden" Readme explaining briefly the differences between Pure and Modified Content
before reading this reply.
so ... 349
files within tslpatchdata Modified Restoration against 43
files from Pure?? plus Kreia apparently "involved" in the process?? (always loved her cryptic comments, guidance and dark teachings)
I think I'll give a go on Modified then ...
this playthrough at least.
