This Baldur’s Gate 3 Mod Lets You Know When Your Companions Want To Chat

No more missing out on any flirting opportunities.

Story Highlights

  • Camp Event Notifications mod adds a floating exclamation mark above your character’s head.
  • It appears whenever any pending Camp Night Events are available. 
  • While the mod is a big step up from the game’s default system, it still has a few kinks that need ironing. 

Baldur’s Gate 3 features an interesting cast of characters that players can choose to befriend, flirt with, or outright kill. Much of the story progression for these companions happens at your camp through Camp Night Events. But the game doesn’t inform you when these become available. Thus, players can miss out on important companion moments simply because they are not resting enough at camp.

Luckily, Camp Event Notifications, a new mod by Kvalyr fixes this problem. The mod does regular checks to see if there are any Camp Night Events available. In case there are, it informs you by adding an exclamation mark over your character. It looks exactly like when your companions want to say something to you. However, instead of talking to any of the companions to trigger the event, you simply need to do a Long Rest

An exclaimation mark will now pop on your character to indicate pending Camp Events.

Additionally, the mod’s creator dove deeper into how Baldur’s Gate 3 handles companion discussions and pillow talk. Turns out, that whenever you go for a Long Rest in the game, it chooses one event to play out. This usually gets selected based on a priority system. And so, other events get sent further back into the queue as only one event can trigger per Long Rest.

Since most players are unlikely to do consecutive Long Rests at a time, they might not get to see the remaining Camp Night Events play out. Especially because the game, by default, does not have any notification system to inform you that there is another event that requires your attention. Doing multiple Long Rests to see all your companion chats is still a bit tedious. But at least now you will not miss out on any important dialogue. 

That said, while the functionality is great, the UI elements the mod uses still leave a lot to be desired. The large exclamation mark that appears on your character does not go away until you do the Long Rest. And sometimes you might not want to leave your current adventure simply to go off to camp to find out Astarion wants another taste of your blood. A less intrusive alternative would be a great addition, offering the best of both worlds. 

Larian Studios might add its own notification system in the future. The studio has been doing some great work with the recent hotfixes and patches. So, it is not entirely out of the question. Plus, the fact that players are installing mods to make sure they do not miss out on even the tiniest bit of Baldur’s Gate 3, is a testament to how great of a game it is.
