Neverwinter Nights is a very flexible game, and there are many add-ons available that can enhance your playing experience. Here’s a list of add-ons that we have tested and approved for use on the Hidden Tradition server. Unless you are running a very old slow computer, we definitely recommend adding these to your game, it will make it look much better.
Steam Workshop Add-Ons
If you are running NWN via Steam (which is highly recommended) all you have to do to install these add-ons is press the Subscribe button on the linked Steam Workshop page.
For even easier installation, we have collected our favourite add-ons in the Hidden Tradition Steam Collection. Just click on Subscribe to All to automatically install all of the packs listed.
Neverwinter Nights HD Art Pack 1.0: 4.1 GB of HD models and textures.
Cervantes Creature Override Compilation: Replaces many of the monster models in the game with much better looking versions.
- Colorized Spell Icons – Generation 2: This add-on is very handy for spellcasters who want a brighter Hotbar. It turns the standard drab spell icons into nice colour-coded versions instead.
