I know little of the mega mod and the 'true patch gold'. I've heard lots of references, little better than rumours, surrounding it and its connection to the UP. I seem to have come into the community after the stuff with that died down, sounds like some right old drama though.

I installed Tessera's mega mod but noticed it changes the music which is not something I wanted because who doesnt like "Smaller God"? so after some problems of trying to replace the sound folder (i unfortunately have to replay a lot of quests now) i managed to get the original music back, but now I'm missing all the cool little other sound effects the mega mod adds.

This is a problem i dont expect to be fixed, but hey it would be nice to have all the new sound effects tessera's mod adds MINUS the music changes, so any help on that would be appreciated.

Ah, the infamous mega mod. Naked patches for all women, porn, mysogyny, toilet humour, pop music and the modding quality of an 8 years old kid, all under "his" (tessera is a man) vision of what troika would have done if they had the time to finish the game....

yes this communities hate of Tessera proceeds itself.

vdata/system/clandoc000

You will find lines looking like this for each clan:
Code: [Select]
"M_Body0" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor0/Malkavian_Male_Armor_0.mdl"
"M_Body1" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor1/Malkavian_Male_Armor_1.mdl"
"M_Body2" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor2/Malkavian_Male_Armor_2.mdl"
"M_Body3" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor3/Malkavian_Male_Armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body4" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor3/Malkavian_Male_Armor_3.mdl"
"M_Body5" "models/character/pc/male/malkavian/armor3/Malkavian_Male_Armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body0" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor0/Malkavian_Female_Armor_0.mdl"
"F_Body1" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor1/Malk_girl_Armor_1.mdl"
"F_Body2" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor2/Malk_girl_Armor_2.mdl"
"F_Body3" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor3/Malk_girl_Armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body4" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor3/Malk_girl_Armor_3.mdl"
"F_Body5" "models/character/pc/female/malkavian/armor3/Malk_girl_Armor_3.mdl"

Replace the paths you want with new models paths that you will have previously copied, models and materials folders alike. Like Argikt said, most pure skin mods should already explain in their readme. Good luck.

I doubt anybody hates Tessera. He's too ridiculous for such a strong feeling. :taunt:

That's rebranded UP Basic with extra bugs caused by unfortunate attempts in reverting some changes into 1.2 state and another modifications, such as obscenities in Wesp's address.
He? I have always thought Tessie is a yaoi girl who got her wet hands onto Bloodlines for some obscure reason. Damn, I feel so dirty now.

His vision of a correction patch is only strict bugfixes, even if the game remains unbalanced

That's rebranded UP Basic with extra bugs caused by unfortunate attempts in reverting some changes into 1.2 state and another modifications

He said he actually started his patch scraping Wesp's UP, but he also said he and one modder he knows decided it was unprofessional so they remade the gold patch from zero.

(an)other modifications, such as obscenities in Wesp's address.

the infamous wespoop plate on toilets, and he still calls his mod a purist patch. Like all the textures ingame he added in his patch logo (see the first picture attached, not only he added the logo as the cassette tag but it's also another example of his "bug-fix only policy")

does true patch gold add anything new?seems its just bug fixes

Tecnically is a bug fix only patch, but while he says it's the final version (now the eighth final version) some complains there are for some other bugs left (when I've tried it roof kept disappearing at certain angles) but the tech support in his web page "welcomes" you with a page in capital letters saying something like "THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THE GOLD PATCH" repeated ten times and then how any possible bug is the fault of who have installed it or how your pc is crap or because you're a waste for society.

does true patch gold add anything new?seems its just bug fixes

And just for the record, if you read the readme of his patch he openly explains the modification and restorations he did and the stuff he didn't fixed. While those are few it's still hypocrital.

... and unfinished. He claims Troika released the game like they intended it to be when several Troika people have denied this!

That's a played down view to see it. Fact was that Acrimonius, the actual modder, just stole my patch and removed any plus content without my permission, while Tessera kept attacking me in the public. This resulted in an outcry in the community with the result that Acrimonius decided to start from scratch! Which I still believe he really didn't, he changed the original files but just kept my patch as a reference to quickly find the changes. Proof are a few restorations which "accidentally" were exactly as I had done them at the time and which had no place in a "pure bug fixes patch" either! I bet he still works that way, taking my patch to look for stuff to use and then just stealing it...

To bring this back on topic, something similar happened with the ATM. Lenuska, the actual modder, made it the way she wanted to and as she is Russian, she pretty much kept away from the English speaking community. But Marvin, like Tessera more like the front man of the mod, kept making promised and starting fights until he left the scene!

I was only saying what they claims. But didn't actually know they kept your work as reference....




yes this communities hate of Tessera proceeds itself.

No wonder: he came in someone's site, started insulting people and continued to do it on his after he was kicked out the former. If he just made a patch without attacking everybody there will be no hate or mockery.

So really the only consequence for me breaking the game is a few hours of my time, which is fine.

It's not only about breaking the game, merging mods just doesn't work, like you don't get the new content you are expecting. All mayor mods run parrallel out of their subfolders, this includes the UP, CQM, TFN and ATM. The Megamod and the Companion Mod will not work that way, but the Arsenal Mod and pure texture or model changes should do...

A noob idea: tweaking the modloader so after loading the main mod it loads the sub mod with the desired clans row. As Jeremy Clarkson always says (before reality proves him wrong), how hard can it be?
