The Unofficial Patch is not really a mod, but while the default basic patch only fixes bugs, the optional plus patch restores a lot of hidden content, including new quests and new maps!

Get it from Patches-scrolls.de (Germany), Patches.planetvampire.com (Canada) or Patches2.planetvampire.com (France).

This time the setup has been changed, so now the patch will install itself into a subfolder of the main game directory called Unofficial_Patch and you need to start the game either via the desktop icon or start menu entry or manually using the classic Source mod -game parameter. That way several mods can easily be installed parallel on one vanilla game version! Thanks for this go to Behar, who not only created the Game Mod Loader but included all previous dll fixes into it as well!

The patch also includes two new maps, the Malkavian Maze and the Warrens Shortcut. Special thanks go to Psycho-A for the continuous improvement of the Bloodline SDK which made creating maps possible in the first place. Thanks also go to EntenSchreck who supplied me raw drafts of both maps which I finished in Hammer, to Psycho-A and atrblizzard for optimizing them in several ways and the two older new maps too, and last not least to No_Mercy, who showed no mercy at all discussing each minor detail in all of the new levels that could be improved ;)! And as always to my beta-testers...

I guess I have a bug relating to Heather, because after telling her to go to my haven after coming back from the Elizabeth Dane she completely disappears. I've spent the last 4 and a half hours looking for every bugfix I could find, including console commands that tell me she's in my haven when she's not. She's disappeared with and without the Skyline apartment. Then I loaded up the vanilla game to test and she always showed up. Any idea how I could fix this?

So she once was in your haven and is gone now? Which clan are you playing? Did you continue an older save from before patching?

I forgot to mention that I had gone through the plaugebearer quest before even going back to my SA haven, and didn't unlock the skylines on that save, so I figured it couldn't have something to do with only 1 level reloading.

No, after I tell her to go to my Haven and I load a new area, she disappears completely, and doesn't show up in Skyline once I unlock it either. I'm playing a Gangrel, and I started a new game after patching.

So you meet her outside of the Venture Tower, tell her to go to your haven and she never goes there right? What is the last thing you say to her to do that?

Yeah. And I take the #2 options (Not lovely dovey, but not hostile either) and the final dialog option I pick is "My dead heather, what did i ever do without you. I'll see you later"

Hm. Are you using the Python 2.7.2 update or another newer Python version? Did you start the game from the new UP 9.3 desktop shortcut and not the old game one?

I'm not sure about the python version. I had a completely vanilla non-steam version (Besides an already existing widescreen patch and sweetfx, because I got the game from a friend on a flashdrive), and I followed the instructions from download link above. And yeah, I also enabled the console to enter the previously mentioned commands to try and find heather.

So G.Patch_Plus and G.Heather_Haven are 1? Or are you using the basic patch

So I just restored a previous version of the game, and reinstalled the patch. G.Patch_Plus is still 0, but now the game just crashes whenever I load a new hub

Apparently I'm using the basic patch. I can't find a Patch Plus download link anywhere so I figured it was the download link at the top. I'd like to use the Patch Plus, now that I know I don't have it. And G.Heather_Haven is 1, even while I'm in the Haven and I can see she's not there.

Something is wrong with your setup. You can choose plus over basic during installation! Also you always need to use the shortcut the patch creates to run the game...

Well, I reset everything to before I even touched it and re-installed the patch to make sure Patch Plus was on, and tested to see if it actually was working (I'm assuming that the changed protean war form is the "wolf form"). I'm starting a new character right now to make sure it's not specifically on that save

Hiya Wesp! First of all, amazing job! You guys are awesome! Secondly, I was wondering if you would be able to implement the blood textures from the Antitribu mod somehow? Perhaps you could borrow their's or maybe create new ones?

I don't even know what you mean by blood textures, can you explain?

Sorry, I'll be a little more precise. What I mean is the blood splatter when you shoot, stab, slice, etc. an enemy. (In hindsight, Blood "texture" was a poor choice of words)
The Antitribu mod has a very good looking splatter effect. When an enemy is shot, a splash sprays across the walls, or when an enemy gets sliced up with a blade, the splatter even looks like it is running down the walls. I thought that it might be a nice addition to the unofficial Patch if you could work it in :)

Hm, I don't know if I really want to do that. The Antitribu Mod is all about fighting, but the original Bloodlines wasn't and I think the old blood splatters are enough...

No problem, it was just a suggestion and you are the ones actually working on the mod :P

I agree that Bloodlines isn't about the combat, more the story and atmosphere. I find it funny, however, that the game turns into a bit of a hack-n-slash near the end. Not sure if I love or hate that.

Well, good luck with the modding! :)

I think Troika ran out of time and Boyarskij even said that he considers the warrens section as much too long! So what I don't like about the ATM is that they adde more fights to places where they don't belong, like at the Ocean House.

Exactly what AmericanCrime said: "AN essential Bloodlines patch/mod. It fixes almost everything inherently wrong with the vanilla game and aims to enhance the experience as well by restoring content. Highly Recommended!!!!!" This is the TRUE patch for any loyal fan of the game. There is absolutely no reason to not use this patch over any other patch, that claims to be, 'official'. All the mods for the game, use this patch as their foundation & regularly update to work alongside this masterpiece…
