That shouldn't be possible. Is there no "net security" command on the computers in the server room across from the vault?

Wesp5 @ Unofficial Patch 9.5 released!

They do nothing much so the readme should say enough:

ENBSeries: Shader suite, copy to game folder, by Boris Vorontsov.
SweetFX: Different shader suite, use ReShade Setup, by CeeJay.dk.
Free View Weapons: Copy to vampire/vdata/items, created by Wesp5. (no automatic view switch between melee and ranged weapons, but sadly there are no models for melee weapons in first person view)

Huh, I have never heard that before! You might try reinstalling game and patch...

Are you running the game from the patch shortcut? Does the computer icon appear? Have you bound the use key to something weird?

No UP version is compatible with the companion mod except the one that is build in.

What do you mean by old website, the old The Patches Scrolls site?

Have you set the console line before entering the junk yard map?

Type G.Killer_Lucky = 1 in the console.

I can only imagine that you switched from basic to plus for your latest playthrough. I made sneaking more difficult in the latter because a stat that maxes out at 6 makes no sense!

So what was the problem? Didn't you start from the shortcut?

I am using the retail version myself, so this is not a problem. But have you listened to game sound files, like the Asylum music with a media player? This is known to crash the game...

I don't think they even exist or you are playing at a resolution where you can't see them...

So the patch installer itself fails? What Windows version are you using?

The patch works with the original retail version as well as with the Steam and GOG releases, the GOG version already has the basic version included!

There will be an updated German patch sooner or later. The translator has exams at the moment...

The CQM and the UP 9.5 are not compatible, the shortcuts will either run one or the other. If you want the 9.5 improvements you need to wait for the next CQM version...

I don't know. Troika could have done exactly this, as you wouldn't need an open pier end to have someone in the arcade. Also as far as I know to all the other maps where you can do that, like the beachhouse, you can never return.

No hunters and no other cops spawn on the pier which is why I even removed the Glock of the single cop at one time, because you can get it quite easily. Everything else you suggested would again mean making the pier into a kind of second hub...

Spawning civilians is not the problem, the problem is getting them respawned if you kill them. Also getting cops and hunters out there in that case, otherwise it would be a "free lunch pier" :)! This would basically mean to include all the hub mechanics...

Interesting screenshot, I didn't know that one! Are there others were this came from? Still while the fence seems to be missing or isn't as high, hard to say at low resolution, so are the diner houses, so it must have been a very early version. And again no civilians are around although you can see quite far along the whole pier!

Anyway, it's just too complicated to bring civilians up there, you'll need spawners and info nodes and intersting points and many other things that are not availble. In my opinion it's not worth it for the one time you need to go there in the library quest.

I am talking about this screenshot: Vampire-network.net It is easy to fake, you just need to noclip through the gate and attack the cops there, one of whom seems to have been Chunk at the time. The rest of the pier wasn't finished at all, like the buildings and even the models of the railings at the end had no side towards the ocean as the player would never see them! It makes no sense to cut them if they aren't visible, you could just use a novis texture. They were just not there at all!

Also there is nothing behind the fence to the ferris wheel, and there is no other access from that side either because there are cliffs behind it. Last not least Troika faked other screenshots like this one: Vampire-network.net That's high up on a balcony of Grout's Mansion, there is no way up there, it just looks cool!

As for the models, if you can convert these free models into something that can be used in Bloodlines I will consider using them. Otherwise be aware that there are no bicycles visible either.

As for the pier, either due to the police or due to the night, the ferris wheel and other areas are closed off, so people need to come from the beach. My main issue with this is that Troika could very well have civilians added to the open part or the arcade but they didn't. Also I know about the screenshot with the fight there but this was clearly fake as the pier was really unfinished behind the gate before we reconstructed this ares...

Okay, I think you have a point about the Yugo. I will move it back to its original place on the pier where it is dark and you can hardly see it. I will replace it with one of the other cars on the street!

About the pier. Besides that the only way there is down the tunnel and across the beach with the thinbloods, it's not easy to add a lot of civilians doing random stuff, so I probably will not do it!

About motorcycle models, I used only very few not original models and in these cases it was quite obvious how they were supposed to look. If I would start adding new models from elsewhere I bet more people would ask for things like this and it would never end! Also I know only little about Bloodlines modeling and don't thinkk you can just use models from other games or programs.

The main goal of the UP patch in the plus version is to restore original Troika content, so the Yugo is still in, but it will be on the street in 9.6 which looks better. Also there weren't any motorcycles in the game files to restore! Last not least the pier is empty because it is the middle of the night and the main road is still blocked off...
