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

X20 Mod 1.10 now available!

News

X20 1.10 is updated! This edition is designed for compatibility with VTMB Unofficial Patch 11.2 Final.

I let my schedule get away from me and forgot to post 1.9 (UP 11.1) here, so this is a bit of a catch-up post covering the content of both updates.

X20 Basic can be used with any mod, but X20 Plus is designed specifically for the Unofficial Patch. Note that Plus does not contain the textures from Basic: you'll need to download both Basic and Plus for the full experience.

More comparison images available in the gallery:

Catching up with X20 1.9:

  • Hollywood: Tweaked some details in a Vesuvius sign for legibility
  • Hollywood: UP 11.1 replaces a video tape with a film canister; gave it an improved texture.
  • +General: Updated 10 files for compatibility with UP 11.1
  • +General: Removed 2 files; my changes no longer necessary due to changes made in 11.1
  • +General: Tweaked quest material for better comprehension
  • +General: Some grammar corrections
  • +General: Changed some obsolete pop culture references in unidentifiable item text
  • +Santa Monica: Fixed typo in Beckett dialogue. Thanks for the heads up, LordUra!
  • +Santa Monica: Switched temps around to make it more obvious which freezer is unusual
  • +Santa Monica: Shrecknet honeypot
  • +Hollywood: Some familiar names in the Hollywood Celebrity Database
  • +Hollywood: Changed text on easter egg laptop; people kept looking for the printer
  • +Chinatown: Additional Fu backstory

And in X20 1.9.1:

  • +Santa Monica: Fixed mistake that caused werewolf blood quest to break. Sorry! If you fix mid-game and the quest doesn't trigger after reading the email, type "werewolfBloodQuestAssigned()" into the console.

And now finally for 1.10:

  • Hollywood: Changed carved graffiti in Ground Zero
  • Hollywood: Prague billboard as ref to VTM Bloodhunt
  • +General: Cleaned up some language and formatting in computers, notes, and item descs (26 files)
  • +General: Added 13.7% more whimsy in some item descs (3 files)
  • +General: A little additional lore in item descs, as a treat (5 files)
  • +General: Updated for compatibility with UP 11.2 (14 files)
  • +Downtown: Fixed and clarified apt locations in Hannah's appt book
  • +Giovanni: Changed a pejorative in Nadia dialog

Hello, VonAether!

I noticed that in the change-log you mention one of the prince's paintings not having a nice resolution boost because it is reused in another location where it would not be looking right.

May I suggest that you do improve its resolution and replace the painting in the Chantry with a new one?

Thanks!

The purpose behind X20 Basic is that it's drag-and-drop, and just replaces textures. If I changed the painting in the chantry to show something different, that would involve changing the chantry map files, which a) I have no experience with so I'm reluctant to do, and b) would move it over to Plus because it's no longer a simple change in texture.

In Beckett's dialogue there's an error

"The Santa Monica baron has multiple peronalities."

Shouldn't it be:

"The Santa Monica baron has multiple personalities."

Good catch! I just fixed that and it'll be in the next update.

Does this work with Unofficial Patch 11?

As above, "X20 Basic can be used with any mod." That includes any version of the Unofficial Patch

X20 Plus is only updated for UP 10.9 at the moment, since UP 11.0 is still in Release Candidate phase and not finalized.
