Reskining with Antitribu Model?
« on: November 12, 2016, 09:09:30 am »
Greetings all, I'm kinda new to all this stuff about VTM. I haven't played much of it all yet honestly I keep having to restart to get mods and other things right, I'm kinda picky on that. xD Although I did have a small question, I'm new to modding to the point I may need a modding for dumbies kinda book. TvT, but I have toyed with each Mod for VTMB to see if I can find one I like the most, and so far it seems like I may get the most out of VTMB Clan Mod but I have one small problem. I just can't seem to be happy with what I have. :/

I love the malkavian's looks and the way they act, it was very fun and even funny to watch people's reaction to them but I sadly can't understand a thing they are really saying myself sometimes and I can mess up on the story...So sadly I had to give them up, and then there's other clans but I just can't really get into them to much. I played Antitribu a bit and I found I really like Tzimisce in the game, although I hear that there's not a lot for Antitibu yet and I do what the "cake" but I also want things like The  CQM and The CE so I can have the full game experience.

So I was wondering is there a way I can get the Tzimisce model/skin to work in those other versions? I'm not talking about the full system with personal powers and everything just the model itself. Like I said I'm kinda new to all this so I have no clue. :( I tried just playing with files but with no luck, so I felt it was just finally time to ask for help, and see what happens. Anyways if anyone cares to help feel free, I would be happy to hear back from someone if not then I'll understand and try to make do.

Quick Add

If no one can help me about The Antitribu Model for some reason or another that I may not know about, I was hoping then that someone could tell me another re-skin modding then? I saw the P&P Mod's Sabbat Lasombra Female in the add-on area of Moddb, and was wondering if there was some way I maybe able to change hers? Once again I'll understand if no one can help me, so thank you for your time and for reading this post still. :) I just really want to enjoy this game, and trying to just feel right in my own vampire skin. xP

Hey,

Replacing a pc model isn't too complicated. First, go to:
Vampire - Bloodlines\Antitribu_Mod\models\character\pc

In the male or female folder, depending on the gender you want to play, copy the tzimisce folder and paste it to:
Vampire - Bloodlines\CQM\models\character\pc\male or female

Then go to: Vampire - Bloodlines\Antitribu_Mod\materials\models\character\pc_antitribu\male or female
Copy the tzimisce gender you want and paste it to:
Vampire - Bloodlines\CQM\materials\models\character\pc\male or female

Finally, you need to open clandoc000.txt (make a backup of the file first) with a text editor (notepad++ would be best) in:
Vampire - Bloodlines\CQM\vdata\system\clandoc000.txt
Find whatever clan model you want to replace, I will use Brujah as a example:
Code: [Select]
"Clan" "Brujah"
"M_Body0" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor0/brujah_male_armor_0.mdl"
"M_Body1" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor1/brujah_male_armor_1.mdl"
"M_Body2" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor2/brujah_male_armor_2.mdl"
"M_Body3" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor3/brujah_male_armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body4" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor3/brujah_male_armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body5" "models/character/pc/male/brujah/armor3/brujah_male_armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body0" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor0/brujah_female_armor_0.mdl"
"F_Body1" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor1/brujah_female_armor_1.mdl"
"F_Body2" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor2/brujah_female_armor_2.mdl"
"F_Body3" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor3/brujah_female_armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body4" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor3/brujah_female_armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body5" "models/character/pc/female/brujah/armor3/brujah_female_armor_3.mdl"

Replace the M_Body or F_Body lines depending on your gender with these:
Code: [Select]
"M_Body0" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_0.mdl"
"M_Body1" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_1.mdl"
"M_Body2" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_2.mdl"
"M_Body3" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body4" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body5" "models/character/pc/male/tzimisce/tzimisce_male_armor_3.mdl"

Or these for female:
Code: [Select]
"F_Body0" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_0.mdl"
"F_Body1" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_1.mdl"
"F_Body2" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_2.mdl"
"F_Body3" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body4" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body5" "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"

Start a new game and test.

Thank you for replying! Anyways I did what you said step by step, but I feel like I may have messed up somewhere, or it sadly didn't work it seems. I have the model there, well her shape anyways but the image itself of her is black and purple checkered all over her. I sadly can't prt sc it because my laptop only shows a blank black screen so I sadly can't give a image only what I can see myself. Like I said it seems she's there and she's in the right pose even that she's in, in Antitribu but after that nothing else only black and purple.Anything I can do the fix it, or maybe tell me a idea of what I may have messed up on?

I followed the steps I think pretty well, first I copied and pasted the armor/model from Antiribu into CQM and then did the same for the material part of her. After that I went into clandoc000 in CQM and switch any line I saw with.

"F_Body0"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor0/tremere_Female_Armor_0.mdl"
         "F_Body1"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor1/tremere_Female_Armor_1.mdl"
         "F_Body2"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor2/tremere_Female_Armor_2.mdl"
         "F_Body3"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor3/tremere_Female_Armor_3.mdl"
         "F_Body4"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor3/tremere_Female_Armor_3.mdl"
         "F_Body5"      "models/character/pc/female/tremere/armor3/tremere_Female_Armor_3.mdl"

to

"F_Body0"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_0.mdl"
         "F_Body1"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_1.mdl"
         "F_Body2"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_2.mdl"
         "F_Body3"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"
         "F_Body4"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"
         "F_Body5"      "models/character/pc/female/tzimisce/tzimisce_female_armor_3.mdl"

There was two sets in clanoc000 one set was near the top and another near the end, I changed both of them because I didn't know which one I had to change and that's how she came out in the end. If I did anything wrong or I have to change more then just let me know, and thank you again for helping. :)

My bad, I forgot that antitribu pc models are set to search their materials in pc_antitribu. I took the time to test it this time and it will work.

Go back to : Vampire - Bloodlines\CQM\materials\models\character
create a new folder called pc_antitribu. In your new folder, create a other folder called female.

Now go to Vampire - Bloodlines\Antitribu_Mod\materials\models\character\pc_antitribu\female
Copy and paste the tzimisce folder in your Vampire - Bloodlines\CQM\materials\models\character\pc_antitribu\female

There was two sets in clanoc000 one set was near the top and another near the end, I changed both of them because I didn't know which one I had to change and that's how she came out in the end. If I did anything wrong or I have to change more then just let me know, and thank you again for helping. :)

The only set you need to change for the female tremere are the lines 847 to 852 with notepad++
Not sure what the second set is, but you better change it back.
Just in case you are afraid to do something wrong, I put my own CQM clandoc000 that I used for the test in attachment, with only the relevant lines changed.

Thanks, and no worries it seems to be all working just fine. I played with the clanoc000 a little to rest that text in two places thing, and it seems if I don't place it in both spots the model doesn't show at all, so I put it in both spots anyways. :) Thank you again for helping me out, and teaching me something new.
