World of Darkness has announced a new live show called New York By Night, inspired by VTMB's LA By Night radio show. Featuring alongside some other shows and panels that fans of the gothic vampire scene can consume, here's five more VTMB mods to remind you of the good times whilst you listen!


BLOODLINES EXTREME

Bloodlines Extreme - vtmb


Bloodlines: Extreme takes a top-level approach to enhancing the entire game, bringing in more gameplay features alongside improved textures. The list of changes is immense, containing additions like extra info for items, more difficult enemies with changed disciplines, added NPCs that both contribute to combat and to the playing out of the main storyline, and improved aesthetics on many assets for a very overall revised experience in Bloodlines.

Barabbah's Addon

Stemming from the tabletop experience, VTMB's core strength is the variety of ways players can engage with the narrative and story, and how many ways they can choose to play their character. One of the ways this is executed is through clans, which affect your character's quirks and background. The tabletop, naturally, has many more clans to choose from - and so mods like this help make up the discrepancy with more clans sourced from the material that enhance your roleplaying experience.

VTMB: Arsenal mod

Though not specifically a combat-oriented game - with some mandatory bits, but with a heavier emphasis on roleplaying - VTMB's gunplay is notoriously a step below the melee side and the rushed narrative making this more and more important later on doesn't help. Just as well, then, that a competent arsenal mod vastly expanding the weaponry at the player's disposal has existed for many years. Gunfights are more bombastic and varied than before, making even the most egregious encounters from the base game much more fun.

In the World of Darkness, it's not unusual for the undead to have vassals to help with their schemes, and whilst this has some limited representation in VTMB, actual combat allies are rare. With this mod, you can take characters throughout the game with you, and new characters are also introduced for you to befriend and take with you on your adventures, lending a much needed hand in difficult situations.

VTMB's ultimate conclusion remains unclear after all these years, ending on a series of rushed and confusing cliffhangers that fans have been interpreting over and over for years. It's daunting to try to tackle an addon to this already complicated story, but these modders took the prequel approach, tackling the events running up to the game instead. Seen through the eyes of a vampire hunter, you'll have a very different perspective on the events about to take place that setup VTMB's overall story.


Darkened Skies

World of Darkness is the umbrella term for the works derived from White Wolf's roleplaying series focused on gothic creatures like vampires and werewolves existing in a modern day world where they must keep their identities a secret whilst realising ambitions and surviving against their peers. For many, Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines was their first introduction to the series, but the World of Darkness has always been multimedia to an extent, and now, a new live show - as well as other events like panels with the show's actors - has been announced.

After Dark Expansion

New York By Night is a successor to the fondly loved LA By Night
radio show that also featured as part of VTMB's atmosphere and worldbuilding


From Dusk Till New York

There's more where NY By Night came from, though, with a show also based in the Hunter: The Reckoning continuity, the community cosplay-oriented Vampire Vogue, and a news show that will cover further media from the series in gaming. All of this comes not long after the launch of World of Darkness: Unbound, which saw fangame creators given the opportunity to go commercial with their VTM ideas. In short? It's a good time to be a fan of the World of Darkness.

To be honest, the cat is what *really* sold me. Great mod overall, for sure, but going round bleeding gangsters dry whilst a cat knocks about is where you got me.

Short question about the cat. Did you restore it somehow?

Hello! :) What do you mean? I've found it in a small mod (New Santa Monica Haven Mod by Felizpe), I've merely extracted and modified his code....

Okay, I will take a look at that mod. Just recently I discovered that there is an unused npc class called animal which could be used for a cat, but as far as I remember, the cat model has no death animation and will freeze, which is why I only restored it outside of King's Way...

Sadly that class doesn't work as well, but I added some more animations to the cat outside King's Way :)!
