Back at it again
« on: November 30, 2018, 10:52:22 PM »
Hi All.

After a loooong time I've decided to reinstall and play VTM Bloodlines (someone must have mentioned it  :razz: ).
Now, the problem is that I have no idea of what mods to use. I used to play with CQM and I've read that version 4.0 is out now.

I've got a brand spanking new computer so I was wondering if there were some texture mods that could make the game look a little less dated.

Also, not totally unrelated, I've been modding skyrim for a while and I was wondering if Bloodlines has something similar to Mod Organizer nowadays, rather than just putting everything in the data folder.


Appriciate all responses.

Have a nice evening

Yes, and you should play it certainly :)!

Not that I know off, except for shader suites like ENB and SweetFX.

I don't know what Mod Organizer is, but nowadays all major Bloodlines mod can run out of subfolders so you only need to install the main game once...

Thank you Wesp.

Here is a link to Mod Organizer for Skyrim https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/1334/

Basicly it's a piece of software that acts like a virtual game folder on top of your main data folder, allowing you to switch between different mod loadouts without affecting the base game.

Is there a guide on how to install Bloodlines with this new folder setup you're describing?

cheers

Now there's the Mod Loader: you can choose which mod folder use through a command line in the link (but only one, so eventual minor mods like reskins must be placed on the same folder and cannot be choosed optionally)

Nothing special to install, the Game Mod Loader is included with the UP and every major mod. Just create a new subfolder inside your game directory and make it active by appending "-game subfoldername" to the game shortcut or Steam launch options.
