    Alnatch the Unclad (Level 29 Adept Encounter in Erudin)

    A not-so-modest Dwarf named Alnatch the Unclad has recently been spotted roaming the craggy shores of Erudin. Apparently carrying nothing but his two trusty swords, he is quick to challenge any who question his skill in melee. A man of old-fashioned sensibilities, Alnatch is known to be less...

    Have you ever wondered who keeps the water in Athica looking so clean and sparkly? That person is none other than Caynid Brightwater, the city's skilled yet pessimistic moat cleaner.

    NOTE: As of 5 December 2017, this thread is obsolete and will no longer be updated. The patcher should provide all necessary files and any future updates.

    How to Fix Broken Item Icons for Custom UIs (a.k.a. Necklaces Everywhere!)

    Not in a "reading" mood? Skip to the GREEN TEXT below to see your two options. ========== Many players still cling to custom UIs tailored to the old client. One downside of this is that an outdated UI stops displaying icons beyond a certain point, instead slapping the game's very first icon ―...

    Please Review 2.5's "Server Rules" Table

    Note: This is about server mechanics, not the "rules" found in SoD's EULA! If you'd rather skim, just stick to the GREEN TEXT below. All EQ servers run on a table of settings called “server rules” (outlined here and here), which determine the major mechanics of a server. For instance, the...

    How to Restore 2.0's Default Spell Icons

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below. ========== Today, two different people asked me how to restore the old spell icons from 2.0. Luckily, this is just about the simplest UI mod imaginable. There are a few different methods for acquiring the files, and some installs already...

    New 2.5 Item Icons

    Roughly 960 item icons were supported in the old client. In 2.5, there are just over 2,400 item icons compatible with Titanium and more modern installs! :eek: (It may even be possible that 2.5 supports over 4,000 icons, though it'd take a developer to confirm this and would require patching in...

    Grink's Luclin Elementals

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below. ========== Remember those updated classic elementals by @Reppots? Now that I'm in the habit of using Luclin elementals these days, I decided to give a similar treatment to the newer elementals. Here's the new lineup: There are a few...

    How to Fix 2.5's Bugged Inspect Window

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below. ========== The 2.5 client came with a new addition to player inventories — the Power Source slot. Unfortunately, its inclusion shifted certain UI values (known as EQTypes) by a value of 1, and some mismatch in the SoD database doesn't...

    UI Minimap for 2.5

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below. ========== Somebody asked me the other day if I could cobble together a miniaturized map window for 2.5 because apparently the client upgrade broke the few that were compatible with 2.0. Unfortunately, I can't remember specifically who...

    How to Fix 2.5's Broken Song Window (Default UI)

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below! ========== Since 2.5 was launched, a major gripe of Bards (and their groupmates) has been that song icons are displayed incorrectly. Instead of songs showing up at the top corner of the window, the song window would always leave 5 blank...

    Custom SoD Icon for In-Game EQ Button

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below. The "EQ button" that came with 2.5 is a handy feature, but I thought it felt blasphemous constantly looking at that crusty old icon when playing SoD. To rectify this, I cooked up a custom icon and inserted it into the two relevant UI files...

    Classic Race Headshots at Char Creation

    For DIRECTIONS/DOWNLOAD, skip to the GREEN TEXT below! ========== Something that bugs me about character creation is that the "Race" box displays only Luclin models. As a proud pre-Luclin model supremacist, I set out to create a custom version that would use only classic headshots for...

    Unused Pre-2.5 Item Icons

    The 2.0 client had roughly 960 item icons available for use. After combing through the wiki's item icon image tables, I counted just over 40 as having never been used by the SoD devs. Many, if not most, items created in the future will likely pull from the hundreds of new 2.5 icons that devs...
