    The download link on NMA for mapper2 appears to be broken...if im not wrong its the offiicia map editing tool for fallout 2. Does anyone have a working link for it? All i can find are guides on how to use it but nobody includes a download link...

    Thanks for the link. Not sure if i downloaded the right one, i downloaded bis_mapper.exe. As i understand it, to modify NPC inventories, i need to use the mapping tool?

    I installed the mapper, but it is complaining that it cannot find/load font files? I looked at the readme but i dont see any requirements listed at all.

    What do i need to do exactly to get it to work?

    Thanks, that thread says to check the languages, but both fallout2.cfg and mapper2.cfg says its english. But its still complaining about the missing fonts?

    Edit : Oh i didnt realise i was supposed to point the file paths to critter.data instead of the main fallout 2 folder.

    Im not getting the fonts error, but now it says that it cannot open cities?

    You need both the high res and the unlimited cities patch for the mapper.

    Thanks, i can open the .ssl files with a text editor just fine, but i dont know which ones im supposed to open to adjut the merchant restocking scripts.

    For example, im trying to edit balthas's merchant inventory so that he actually restocks the leather armor mk2, but i dont see anything in his NPC script that controls that. How do i figure out which script controls that?

    Check scripts.lst and find what the name of the script you want to change.
