The Unofficial Patch is not really a mod, but while the default basic patch mostly only fixes bugs, the optional plus patch, that can be choosen at installation, is like a restoration mod adding a lot of unfinished content, including new quests, maps, weapons, items, characters, dialogue, graphics, models, sounds and music!

Is it just me or is the checkOccult() function totally broken? I picked up the galdjum at Skyline Apartments but it never identified even though I had a research score of 5. Changing maps and reloading the game didn't fix it. Calling checkOccult() from the console didn't seem to do squat either.

I just got this game on GOG and found out about the unofficial patch. From what I understand, the GOG version is already patched with the 9.5 basic patch. If I wanted to install the plus patch, could I just install it over the GOG game? Or would this cause problems?

The reviews on the GOG store page keep repeating "make sure you get the unofficial patch", are you sure it's included??

I think I'm finally going to buy it, after hearing so much positive on this game for a while

Positive. The GOG version already has the 9.5 basic patch installed. I have it and I've checked. What people mean when they tell you to get the unofficial patch is that you should get the plus patch.

The Basic one simply fixes bugs while the Plus patch restores content and tweaks some things. If you intend to play through the game more then once, then you should probably play with the basic patch first so you could better appreciate the differences. The tweaks are not for everyone and some people dislike them. Most think the game's not complete without them however.

And you really should play the game more then once. Your choice of clan can make quite a big difference. Malkavian's especially offer a unique experience.

Okay so it's on there then, but you download and install it like you would normally anyway to get the extras? Because that's what I went ahead and did...

Read something about character creation screen is supposed to say "unofficial patch version" to confirm its working, there's nothing there at all. But at the options gameplay section it shows the patch version. So I don't know, and there definitely was a bug immediately during opening movie where character kept studdering...

No, you can just install plus over it, provided you start a new game.

You select it during installation after you download the whole patch from The Patches Scrolls.

Honestly, there isn't much that can be said that can give this impressive amount of hard work enough credit. The dedication put in by all of the people working on this patch is incredible, and I truly appreciate all that is done with every single update. Wesp5 and the VTMB unofficial patch crew, thank you. Honestly, the only reason I continue to play this game is to see just what you folks put in or restore next. I have never been disappointed. Keep up the good work! To give more of an explanation…
