I was browsing through VTMB-related hashtags on Twitter and stumbled across this profile:

I haven't read the two documents in full, yet (skimmed one of 'em), but they're apparently wishlists for a remaster of the game. It does get me thinking about what a remaster of this game could look like. Not sure how I feel about this person's ideas, though...

Ha! Yeah I haven't read through that one, yet. I'm reading through the other one...

Do you think someone was just having a laugh when creating these documents or do you think this is serious? haha

I've read about halfway through the main one (54 pages!)... I think they were having a laugh. But I like a little of what I read... more clans, adding bloodlines, etc. That stuff's cool. I'm pretty sure the whole seduction/blush of life shit was all a joke, though... otherwise I'm worried about the author... 😂

I haven't touched the other one yet and I'm not sure if I will...

ETA:

All right I've read through the longer one...

You know it's actually not terrible? The TL;DR is basically this:

Whoever wrote this imagined what a fully-expanded remaster of the game might look like. They wanted to include all of the clans and several bloodlines, add the ability to directly customize a PC in detail (a bit like what VTMB2 is doing?... maybe?), and took the idea of clan-specific quests from Clan Quest Mod but came up with different quests (instead of what are in CQM). This person wants gameplay to change for certain clans/bloodlines (like... you wouldn't get the classic opening if you play as Tzimisce, Lasombra, or Giovanni, and your sire wouldn't get caught for a clan and a bloodline). They also apparently think it'd be cool if we could play as something other vampires... like Hunter, Human, or Kuei-Jin. They also want it to be far more M-Rated, with sex and nudity and all that.

IDK... personally, cut out all the stuff about sex (that whole section on seduction was imaginative... I'll give it that... but... unneeded), and it's not half bad. Don't know if I actually like the various different quest ideas, but it's certainly interesting nonetheless. Whether it's worth a read or not is up to you.

I do think it'd be cool if it was remastered, but I'm not sure if I'd want it to be expanded on like that... maybe just update the engine and code so it's easier for fans to mod...

I still can't decide if I'm gonna read the other one or not (the Sex Wishlist one... lol). Has anyone else read it? What's in it?

It was mainly about the blush of life and having asexual, homosexual, heterosexual and bisexual divisions.  It sounds like from what you summarized that the second was mostly included in the first.

How many pages was the one you read? The one I read was 54 pages. There was a section going over Blush of Life, though, so... maybe?

Four pages of index, 16 pages of text.

So a full quarter of the second one is an index? Yikes...
