Neverwinter Nights Extender (NWNX2)

The Neverwinter Nights Extender (NWNX2 for NWN) adds extra functionality such as SQL database support, additional scripting functions, performance monitoring and many other features to the games Neverwinter Nights (and Neverwinter Nights 2, in the form of NWNX4). It supports a plugin architecture which makes it easy for third party developers to extend the game even further.

Key features of NWNX include:
- Makes SQL databases accessible from NWN
- Restarts the server after crashes or lockups
- Extensible through plugins, with many already available
- Completely free and licensed under the GPL

The following tables are designed to keep current NWNX2 information in one place for Neverwinter Nights builders and site admins. If you have information on more currently useful plugins, please send an email with all of the information to builder@neverwinternights.info. For information on installing (and possibly basic use), click on the little blue ± in the description.
