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...

No, it's a kind of a shortcut level in the Malkavian Mansion of Grout which we restored with unused assets after concept art and beta screenshots!

Hey Wesp! Thank you for working so hard on this patch over the many years. I know the later versions of this aren't compatible with other major mods like the Clan Quest Mod. That's not a big deal, except that these mods use versions of the UP that don't include support for 1920x1080 resolutions. Is something like editing the resolution easy to do when it comes to VtM:B? I have experience in modding and editing various game files, but I know Bloodlines is notorious for being difficult. I looked through files a little bit already but I was afraid of messing something up. Thank you in advance!

You can either use the ResPatcher tool for that which is still included with the UP Extras folder, otherwise you need to copy some dlls and other files over. Which should become a bit easier with the next patch release though...

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…
