The modding community for Baldur’s Gate 3 has been hard at work to improve an already amazing experience by adding different quality of life features. While you can highlight some objects in an area, the functionality is still a bit limited and doesn’t always highlight all interactive objects. You can now highlight everything in Baldur’s Gate 3 using this very useful mod.
