Awesome  :rock:

I have been needing a new project for a while now. Getting all my modding resources set up again, including a new youtube channel etc.

Ventrue Male, all armors:

Should say that you're succeeded in conveying the vaguely vampiric impression the original model utterly lacks.

Regarding female Ventrue, the modders apparently have a crush for tuning her skin tone into human-like as well.
Unaltered model could be crappy in terms of modelling/texturing, yet at least looks exactly like a walking corpse, which was the whole point.

As for my tone, modding something as thoroughfully broken as Bloodlines is beyond impressive by itself. Attempted reverse engineering rigged model format a few years ago (and not without an initial success), yet the whole system is so screwed up that I couldn't get myself to progress further.

I couldn't agree more about not "humanizing" the models. Every texture I have made for the player models has been color shifted blue/green to make them look less alive and more like the undead. I suppose interpretation plays a role here though, some modders may like the more "pass for human" vibe I guess. Personally I always felt that it should be a case of, the longer you stare, the more off they would seem.

Always good to see a new Bloodlines modder. Toreador Female is pretty good, Ventrue Female video won't play and I don't really like the look of the Ventrue Male just does nothing for me sorry. I've been looking at replacing some PC appearances myself, primarily the males since I only really play Males, only really played Female when Antirbu mod haden't implemented all the Males yet. Most of the vanilla outfits are boring while the Malkavian and Nosfeartu outfits are god awful. Unfortunately my modelling ability is only really reskins.

I mean I'm not familiar with the rules of Table top but vampires can do 'Blush of Life', making them look temporarily more human, I also thought that covered them looking normal. Personally I've always had a soft spot for vampires being a little pale, by which I mean a little.

For me, anything that just a little pale called a thinblood. "Blush of Health" is a merit, not a discipline, which implies it's quite rare.
Glad that I'm not the only one who considers Malk outfits off in a wrong way.

Yes. Well kinda. We are married so I force him to make mods for games I like playing :rofl: but seriously Xaltar makes the models I mostly only participate with concept and testing. Well that and I stand there looking hot for moral support :razz:

As to the color of the vamp skin I personally don't think they should look like corpses cos well if they did they wouldn't exactly be able to blend in with humans. So yeah I would say very pale but not corpse like in appearance.   

I feel ya The Shadow Man. I only play chick characters. There will be more dudes so I'm sure you'll find at least a few to be more your flavor.  :vampwink:

Incidently I think these are pretty nice Malkvian reskins.

Having talked to the creator after they made Noir, I managed to motivate them to make Eccentric.

Always good to see a new Bloodlines modder.

lol, hardly new, I have been around since the early days just took a long break from modding VTM:B. Had to make a new account here seeing as the forums have been upgraded (migrated?). A lot of the early model mods where mine, I think I may have even been the first to actually get an edited character model back in the game, at least among the first. This was back in the day when Czud was still making import/export scripts for 3dsMax. I think my last mod was the Brujah female replacer based on the Malk, you know, the one that says "I could be a bitch, if I was nicer" on the back of the shirt on Armor 1  :razz:

I can appreciate that not all my mods will be appealing to everyone, that's part of the fun of mods, if you don't like one you can always use another.

Cool. I didn't know you did that.
I wonder why the Malk Noir didn't make it into the selectable models in CQM's setup.

I seem to be pretty new here compared to a lot of people, that's certainly before my time. I have great respect for all modders of Bloodlines.

I don't think I've seen this reskin but then again I usually only look at male reskins, shame there isn't very many for me to look at. Even so I would like to change the Female Malkavian and Female Nosfeartu in my game at very least.

That's true, you can never please everyone as everyone has different tastes but the more you do the more likely a person will like certain things you've made.

Yeah for sure. This is obviously our idea of how we would like the characters to look. Everyone has their own ideas especially when it comes to a game like this that's based on like tons of PnP lore as well. We use to play that too btw way before the PC game and it was a blast. Anyway I think we will probably provide the option to download separate clan packs as well for those people who only like certain models but not all of them.

One minor thing. Have you replaced the shared hands for the Ventrue with hands in the right color? Might look a bit funny if a black guy picks locks with white hands. (A bit like in the old Star Trek series when Lt. Kyle operates the transporter and in the closeup you can see sleeves with lt-commander stripes  :razz:)
Other than that I like what I can see in the pics. Sadly I can't get the videos playing.
