When creating VTM Bloodlines, Activision and Troika seemingly only had the license to use elements from Vampire: The Masquerade, ignoring the rest of the World of Darkness setting.

The various 20th Anniversary Editions of the World of Darkness tabletop game lines (the "X20" editions) are intended to be used as sort of the equivalent of a "Greatest Hits" album, where all your favourite band's best material is remastered and presented in the best light possible.

So the X20 Mod is intended to bring that design philosophy to Bloodlines: to make it feel like it fits into the wider World of Darkness setting by including references both overt and subtle, obvious and deep-dive, referencing material that came out before Bloodlines and after. This is a World of Darkness fan's Greatest Hits album.

Even if you're not a World of Darkness fan, these alterations might encourage you to become one, inspiring you to look up references and names. If nothing else, it'll keep your playthrough feeling fresh.

X20 Mod is one of VTMB: Clan Quest Mod's "recommended mods" in the installer!

"It's very very good! Thank you for your hard work!!" --Xander Jeanneret, the Malkavian "X" from Geek & Sundry's LA by Night

I skipped a news article for the release of X20 1.2, so if you missed out, this will cover both.

X20 1.3 is updated and designed for compatibility with VTMB Unofficial Patch 10.5 Final. 10.6 is currently available but (as of the posting of this article) still in Release Candidate phase and not finalized.

  • Downtown: Missing Person poster on bus shelters
  • General: Wall clock changed to a subtle VTM reference rather than Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  • Santa Monica Haven: Improved Strauss' monogram
  • Santa Monica: Lily's license plate is redone in higher rez, should be much easier to read

Ian, you son of a bitch! I didn't know you made this until I saw your avatar.
I'm amazed you were able to pull this off so well!

On line (I believe) 852 of Regent.dlg there is a typo for the Tremere clan player: Thank you, Regent. I need to tell you: the prince has been double-dealing iwth the Kuei-jin.

iwth should be with, of course.

Otherwise this is wonderful, thanks for all the hard work! :)

the basic version is not included in the plus version, but the plus version should only be used with the unofficial patch (normal or plus) instead of a mod. the newest Clan quest mod has it integrated though, so no need to install it there.

Though CQM uses an outdated version of the basic version if this.

Yes, CQM includes X20 0.09. People are more than welcome to download and use an updated X20 on CQM or another mod.

This is my question exactly. So, to clarify:

I do have/have been using the latest CQM. So to integrate this mod to CQM, I just download the basic version?

There's an installation guide in it I hope? Sorry, because my experience in using modding other mods have been simply to use the add-on skins and such.

Also,

I've installed both the basic and the plus version over UP 10.3. If you choose to play the tutorial, there will be a time when ack tells you to feed a second time after the Sabbat shot you. You're then supposed to feed on a bum 'around the corner'.

For some reason, the bum isn't there anymore so you can't move forward with the tutorial.

This isn't a big problem, though, as you can easily skip the tutorial, but I thought I'd mention it.

The placement of the bum is beyond the scope of this mod, sorry.
