Hello and greetings, First and foremost, Team Antitribu as a whole would like to issue a joint statement and thank all of you faithful fans for sticking around with us while we continue to develop Bloodlines: Antitribu.

This is DarknessImmortal669 the recently appointed, main developer behind Bloodlines Antitribu (aka FleshArtist) and the renown Marvin (Mv/Antitribu Guy) who is the original mastermind behind this mod. Here, we will address what is happening and what is going to happen in the future. I tried to list them down into question and answers to be easier to follow up. If you have any new questions, ask them in the comments and we will add them to the page.

Q1: What Happened to the Forum?

A: Initially the forum was on a dedicated site on BloodlinesAntitribu.com, but later on, as we became busier, we couldn't constantly check several forums so we brought it to our private developer forums, we had to hide our main developer boards and open a portion of the forum to the public for open discussion, however this was not working as intended since the forum was slowly becoming an "Antitribu Forum" while in reality it was a forum for developers (most of which did not work on Bloodlines) and they felt a little invaded as Bloodlines community can get a little freaky at times - after all we are all children of the night not everyone has what it takes to handle us. That is why I decided to move the forum to a place it truly belonged, PlanetVampire.

PlanetVampire was home to Marvin and Lenuska ever since they conceived Antitribu back in 2009 - that is where the idea slowly was developed and turned into what you see today. Back in the day it was nothing but a simple Lasombra mod, but it turned out to be something much more valuable. Having the mod back at PlanetVampire ensures that people don't have to sign up to any more forums and be in places they don't want to be, this way they can all be in one place - and checking not only the mod but also everything else vampire related.

Another thing issue what the mod had nothing to do with the studio. it was mostly my personal passion project. and not something many of the developers wanted to be a part of. Too dark for them as those that played the mod can verify. Its ahead of its time - a lot of gore, rape and discrimination which is only to reflect on how the real world is. Not any can cope with that - needs a lot of . . . will power and blood points. hehe.

Q2: Is the mod dead? Where are the updates?

As you very well know, we are the slow and steady kind, so after we released Antitribu we worked out all the bugs that could be fixed soon, the rest of the bugs need the overhaul of a system. Such as simplifying the some puzzles, rebuilding the lasombra weakness, upgrading Tzimisce weakness and making new models. Improved dialogues are expected, but may not all be finished by the newest patch (1.1)

But the good news is that new developers have decided to join the team so the mod will be done much faster. Just it takes time, and this game is not as easy as some other games like Skyrim that have official tools. Its all manual and greasy!

Q3: What happen to the "other" project you were working on?

One other reason the updates have been slow is because of the other project. Game Development is very time consuming and it needs our full attention. and as we've said, bloodlines is too greasy to work with, its better to create a game that you can make everything you want to make on it and what we are making is certainly in development. It took a while to gather funding for it without any sponsors but its finally done and officially in development. Its fully self funded and has no strings attached - I did not want us to make the same mistake Torika did which is being funded by a corporation that forces you to a direction you may not like, and lets be honest, its their money, very few would allow you to make the game you want with their money, hence why we had to self fund this if we wanted to make what we want, what is good for us. Original IP and all . . . no more cease and desists. Thank GOD for that. lol.

Q4: Will you still be developing the mod?

Yes of course, there is no reason abandon this project - but I will be more behind the scenes, and our friend and developer Darknessimmortal669 will take over the front of the house and also some development aspects. But since I am needed a lot back in the studio I will be less active on the front, but I will always be present. Like an Antediluvian - I was gonna say the Lasombra Ante, but some believe he is dead so might not be a good comparison, Tzimisce one perhaps? Cain? bah . . . you get the message. lol.

Q5: Why is there a new man in the team? Who is FleshArtist (DarknessImmortal669)? What is his role?

In January 2013, I began as a simple mod watcher, the idea behind the mod was very intriguing to me. Yet for a while, I assumed it was dead. Only when the mod was released in February of 2015 did I begin to get to know Marvin, and Lenuska through the old FX forums. I was on there for a fair amount of time, and I developed a great relationship with Marvin. However, the time came when he considered passing the mod on, the stress put on him by other projects was enough, he weighed his options of who he was to pass the role of lead developer to. I had some experience in modding, although at that time, I had only seldom modded Bloodlines mostly making small improvements to dialogues, skins, maps, and python files, I still offered my help. As a good friend of Marvin, he made the decision to pass the task of main developer onto myself. We brainstormed the future of Antitribu together, and ensured that the mod would continue on the road to fulfilling it's maximal purpose. Admittedly, it was a tough time for Antitribu, and the Bloodlines community. RavaFX forums had become a rather unstable place, and much pressure was placed on Marvin, who was doing his best to maintain order.

Now the summer has passed, and Marvin has decided to stay with us until after 1.1 and a few patches are released. At current, my main role is to lead the Antitribu project into it's future. And ensure that Antitribu becomes a mod enjoyable for any fan of the Classic World of Darkness or Bloodlines player. I do have other projects which I am working on for other games, and a rather busy life outside of the internet, so if anyone has an important question for myself, or the team, please feel free to inbox me or Lenuska.

Will we see some shadows of true black hand as there are old clan tzimice or are they dead too in this mods cannon?

There should be one insane Old Clan Fiend in the mod spouting Soul-Eater delusional rants. Canon/lore is a bit loose since there is a tension between new content and Bloodline's established metaplot from Classic Vampire. The new V20 might influence some new content. I might need to discuss this with Mv.c9, especially since V20 takes some things in a completely different direction to Classic (i.e. Ravnos aren't ignorant Gypsy stereotypes, the Week of Nightmares never happened, True Black Hand are smaller and self contained rather than supposedly insane and infiltrating every other faction like in Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand). Such differences would only affect very minor things in the mod however.

I liked some Pop's changes and it did make the game feel challenging on a regular basis for once BUT I couldn't deal with the health module any longer. It was pure tedium and really stripped the game of any sense of believability. Humans taking multiple clips from guns was silly to me, after all, *spoiler* Johnny freaks out when he shoots you and see's it doesn't phase you and yet his boys take up to 30 rounds to down *spoiler*. It's also ironic that Jack mentions that now as a vampire you can take quite a beating, yet human enemies seem to shrug off supernatural levels of damage. That's just my perspective on Pop's.

Right now that is balanced, you can kill enemies fast with the right weapons, but also can be killed very fast with the same weapons.

I wonder about Bloodlines Antitribv Armosphere not display "download" do something with bug or problem domain load? I wish to see how game with VTMB new mods make me inteset than dull. hey, about "Final Night" so great as badass of game.

I want to know about edit for win vista and 7? because problem with lips not move as speak and unable subtitle with sound display but subtitle can show when talk with person. I using Win XP now but I had 'dual boot' for XP, vista, and 7 in one computer.

Could you please rephrase what you wrote? I unfortunately cannot grasp what it is you are asking. I will attempt to answer you though.

The atmosphere dl is down because GMC is down. The site needs to be renewed and to my knowledge Mv.c9 has to do that. The atmosphere mod however no longer represents what will be in antitribu.

Personally I'm not a fan of TFN or Camarilla Edition. The changes just aren't to my taste. Excellent effort however went into those mods and some people like them, so at least Bloodlines can keep fresh to an extent. If you want a new way to play Bloodlines I suggest you try the Clan Quest Mod, with the PnP combat and Pop's Difficulty options installed in order to make the 'Nightmare Mode'. It makes combat quite a challenge.

For what I assume is you asking about trouble with the game, I have no idea since I have never had that type of issue. Have you tried to uninstall and then reinstall fresh? Apart from that I don't know what to advise since I'm assuming you're not running background programs and your comp is powerful enough to handle Bloodlines. Sorry if I can't be more helpful.

I understood, I had diffcult write because I am dyslexia... I wish God give to my brain lol.

I see about The atmosphere still bug and not finish replace yet..

I have external HDD usb lot storage total 1 TB, it for games source only. I have many fold for VTMBs diffenet names on folds ex: VTMB fold, VTMB update fold, VTMB CE fold, etc... total 7 folds alos other 4 backup folds more easy than sorry or reinstall make me sick of long to loads.

I try said to you, I have Dual Boot mean can change different windows while boot up will display selcet list windows XP pro, Windows VISTA Ultimate, and Windows 7 Ultimate, you get it?

talk about VTMB had prolbem with Win Vista and 7 cause 64 to 128 bit graphic but it not 64 bit that usually 32 bit. becuase mod NPC cannot move with lip as speak look like mime make me drive a crazy! subtitle sound mean noise some other place not display on top and left but subtitle face to face is work. but VTMB still work run on game, my favor turn to Win XP then play VTMB game 100% best than Win Vista and 7 need update with VTMB disolve.

No idea, your multiple installs of the EHD and dual boot setting with multiple OS's is probably the issue. I run Bloodlines with no issues on Windows 7 in 1920x1080. Maybe your comp can't handle the game with its specs. There are too many variables you don't shed light on. Try the Bloodlines technical forum at Planet Vampire.

All of you whose are giving bad ratings maybe should look a single video first.

This is a many years expected work. A mod from a 2004 game.
If you played this game before, i suggest you to play this mod, because it´s a entirely new experience, very replayable, and will grant you many, many hours of fun. I´ll do it as well.

If not, maybe it´s time to play the game and the mods. Will run very smooth in actual computers.

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 4/10

+ New PC & NPC models, really well made + Enhanced graphics & music (love the blood stains) + New quests with professional-level voice acting + New/different bosses that require you to use your head - Random crashes - Balance issue (Giovannis are underpowered, Setite are overpowered) - Artificial difficulty (random groups of vampires in various locations) - No blood buff/blood heal customisation - Koldunic magic is tricky to customize and lacks spells descriptions - Some new mechanics are wonky/glitchy…
