ini file setting additions/changes
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file settings, so that red/green color blind
  users don't get killed by traps unexpectedly.
  [Trap Colors]
- Added ability to turn off visible cloaks in the nwnplayer.ini file
  (set to 1 to enable cloaks, 0 for no visible cloaks).
  [Game Options]
  Visible Cloaks=1
- Added in-game text swear filter nwnplayer.ini setting (set to 1 to enable,
  only supports English).
  [Game Options]
  In-game Text Swear Filter=0
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to always roll maximum hit points at
  level up for players (defaults to off).
  [Server Options]
  Max Hit Points=1
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to not display the hit points rolled
  on the level up summary gui (defaults to off).
  [Server Options]
  Hide Hit Points Gained=0
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to restore the remaining spell uses 
 from the character file on log in to a "server vault" server. This option
 defaults to off.
  [Server Options]
  Restore Spell Uses On Login=0
- Added new nwn.ini file setting to set how far into the distance grass 
 should be rendered (default value 900.0, valid values range from 900.0
 to 30000.0). Increasing this value will cause more grass to be rendered
 in outdoor grassy areas, but will also reduce game performance in 
 these areas.
  [Video Options]
  Grass Far Render Distance=900.0
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to toggle on/off the file logging of
 creature deaths.
  [Game Options]
  Death Logging=0
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to reset the encounter level spawned by
 an encounter trigger every time that it spawns creatures. If this option
 is turned on, the encounter trigger will always spawn creatures based on
 the triggering player's level rather than potentially using left over 
 spawned creature from an early triggering that was initiated by a much 
 higher level player.
  [Server Options]
  Always Reset Encounter Spawns=0
- Updated Get2DAString() scripting command 2da caching code to cache a number of
 2das specified in an ini setting. 
  [Server Options]
  2DA Cache Size=10
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to log each script as it executes
 (defaults to off). Enabling this will degrade game performance. It should
 only be used for script debugging purposes (i.e. when you have a bad script
 that causes your module to lock up, checking the log file will let you know
 the last script that executed).
  [Script Options]
  Enable Logging=1
- Added new nwnplayer.ini file setting to obtain script profiling data in the
 log file (defaults to off). Enabling this will degrade game performance. It
 should only be used to determine which scripts you need to optimize to 
 improve the performance of your module. Note: "Enable Logging" should be 
 turned off when profiling is enabled.
  [Script Options]
  Enable Profiling=1
- Added new option to the nwtoolset.ini file to set the toolset CPU affinity 
 on multi-core computers. If you have more than one CPU on your PC, then 
 you can use this setting to make the toolset run on only one of the CPUs 
 by specifying the number of the CPU (0-31). Setting "CPU Affinity=-1" 
 will turn off CPU affinity
 (default 0).
  [Start Up]
  "CPU Affinity".
- The nwnplayer.ini setting for "Client CPU Affinity" now defaults to 0 (a 
 setting of -1 will be converted to 0). If you need to disable this 
 feature set the value to -2.

Feat Prerequisite changes (these may make some existing characters invalid in
 multiplayer games)
- The Epic Dodge feat now requires 30 ranks of Tumble skill as a 
 prerequisite, as per the description (feat.2da).
- The "Dragon Shape" feat now requires Wild Shape 6x/day as per the 
- Fixed prerequisite for "Epic Weapon Focus Club" to be "Weapon Focus Club" 
 rather than "Improved Critical Club" (feat.2da). 
- Weapon Specialization Club now requires four fighter levels to obtain 
 (ratherthan one).

General Fixes:

- Added missing Trident weapon feats.
- Tridents are now classified as a "Martial" weapon, rather than a simple weapon.
- Fixed how Damage Resistance works against weapons that do more than one 
 type of damage (i.e. Morning Stars and Halberds). The target now uses the
 worst of the multiple damage resistances against weapons that inflict 
 more than one base weapon damage type.
- Fixes to Whirlwind/Improved Whirlwind/Great Cleave so that all the attacks 
 aredone at the player's full BAB.
- The Defensive Roll feat now works 1/day as per the description.
- Fixed the caster level being used for Holy Avengers (it is now always set 
 to 10 as it is cast from an item, rather than using the player's paladin 
 caster level).
- Updated Weapon Finesse to work with all Creature Weapons regardless of the 
 creature's size.
- Made some minor game optimizations.

 screenshots subdirectory.
- Changed "Black Blade of Disaster" feats from "Longsword" to "Greatsword"
- Changed "Brewed Potions" so that they now behave like normal potions (i.e. when
 used they play the drinking animation, can be dropped on henchman, etc).
- Fixed issue with "Improved Expertise" mode not being correctly displayed in 
 the combat log for "special" attacks.
- Fixed issue with resting not getting canceled correctly if a member of your party 
 started attacking something during your rest period (the OnPlayerRest event 
 is now properly called in this situation).
- Made some changes that will hopefully address area loading crashes related to 
 "shiny water" being enabled in watery areas of the official campaign.
- Fixed issue with the DM "Send Exit Event" radial command when used on generic
 triggers. The DM object wasn't being set correctly as the exiting object
 causing scripting calls to GetExitingObject() to not work correctly.
- Fixed attack bonus granted when attacking stunned creatures.
- Fixed AC Increase vs Damage Type item property to work correctly.
- Fixed some memory leaks.
- Fixed some exploits.

To create a mounted NPC in the tooolset you need to do the following
