Essential improvements

Enable Player Party Control

Set in settings.tml.[2][3]
  1. Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\.
  2. Open settings.tml in a text editor.
  3. Change player-party-control = false to player-party-control = true.

Notes:

Allows players to control their non-PC party members in the same way as DMs do. ie like the player character, but requiring holding keys to differentiate.
Hold Ctrl while clicking or dragging to select party member(s). Hold Shift to direct them like the player character, but do know that some commands such as use will still only command the player character.

Helmet and Cloak Visibility Toggle Mod

Toggle via ingame chat.
  1. Save the github's files into %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\, so that the scripts in the downloaded override folder are pasted into your installation's override folder.
  2. When ingame, enable debug mode by entering ##DebugMode 1 into the chat.
  3. Toggle helmet visibility by entering ##dm_runscript toggle_helmet into the chat, and/or toggle cloak visibility by entering ##dm_runscript toggle_cloak into the chat.
  4. Disable debug mode by entering ##DebugMode 0 into the chat.

Notes:

These commands can be assigned to quickslot macros to toggle with ease.
Macros are part of save data, so they will be lost if you load an older save.
Visibility is applied to the gear you are wearing itself rather than the gear slot on your character. It will need to be reapplied each time you equip a new helmet and/or cloak, but that also means you can visibility toggle gear before giving it to your party members.

Henchman Inventory & Battle AI Mod

Choosing AI options and installing.
  1. Download and run Main install exe.
  2. Change Destination Directory to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\override.
  3. Select which components of the AI mod you want to install.
  4. Select Install.

Notes:

Default selected components include all but Large Box replacing Bag of Holding, Monster door opening and unlocking, and K2's inventory stackable hak.

LAN play
Online play
64 Co-op, Versus
Co-op, PvP and even MMO like persistent worlds are available. The entire game was built to be playable in multiplayer co-op, but the expansions were not, though fan-mods exist to fix the issues presents in the expansions to allow them to completed in multiplayer as well. The enhanced edition has made it easier to play on persistent worlds by allowing automatic download of assets.
