Hi everyone,

Everyone's been making threads for their mods, so I thought I'd make one too... :cometome:

I have a more meaningful project in the works, which is nearly finished - but for now, I'd just like to share a few minor fixes I've made. Applicable download links can be found at the bottom of this post!

BOX ART LOGO FOR MAIN MENU [vtmb_corrected_logo.zip]



I don't know why they settled for the Revised Edition logo, without the subtitle, for the main menu - so I just took the logo with the subtitle, as seen on the box art, and tweaked it to match as a replacement:



CONSISTENT TRAMP STAMP FOR FEMALE MALKAVIAN [malkavian_female_consistent_tattoos.zip]



Here's a weird detail I'm surprised nobody has cared to fix, considering the love for this clan, and this player model in particular. But I'm also prone to hyperfixating, so there's that.

Basically, the cowgirl outfit didn't have the tattoo seen on the schoolgirl outfit, so I went ahead and fixed this inconsistency. For all I know though, our girl could just be a fan of temporary tats. :justabite:

Due to differences in the base models used for each outfit, it's not a pixel perfect match, and I ended up having to make the tattoo bigger than it was before - but it's a decent solution, I think, considering I had to work around the screwy UV mapping...

-

I made a tattoo-less variant of the schoolgirl outfit while I was working on the above - that's coming later, alongside a tattoo-less variant of the female Tremere. Please enjoy these, for now!

Nice
Although now the "Bloodlines" writing make redundant the old one

The more I look at it the more I'm convinced the old logo looks stretched ;)

That doesn't look too bad! Is it okay if I include it in the plus version of the Unofficial Patch?

Don't forget the tattoo

I think this might indeed be temporal and I don't want to start reskinning player models :)!

By all means, Wesp, if you want to! :vampsmile:

Update! Remember that "more meaningful project" I was talking about? Applicable download links can be found at the bottom of this post, like last time. :vampwink:

REVISED LGB HISTORIES [lgb_histories.zip]

I was very happy with the gay history that Wesp added to the UP back in 2017, but I always felt the implementation was a little dry - that it didn't necessarily match the tone of the other histories in the game.

That's understandable, of course, since it was nothing more than pretext for a cosmetic change in a single scene - but so, I took it upon myself to rewrite it for fun, and then one idea led to another...

I ended up creating unique histories (i.e. replacements for the single "default" introduced by Wesp) for every clan and gender, leaning heavily into community stereotypes for a little Bloodlines-typical satire.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on here who cares about this kind of thing, but it's all in good roleplaying fun!

This mod was built on top of UP+ 10.3 (and the X20+ mod) and will therefore reflect all changes made to histories000.txt as of that version.

Previews for Clan Ventrue and Clan Malkavian:





TATTOO-LESS FEMALE TREMERE & MALKAVIAN [tremere_female_notattoos.zip + malkavian_female_notattoos.zip]

Like I said in the OP, I made a tattoo-less version of the Malkavian female while I was working on the tattoo fix - and I've had a tattoo-less version of the Tremere female laying around for years too, so here are those.



Please enjoy! :vampsmile:
