                Ok, now i need the help:
 HOW CAN I ADD MY NORMAL MAPS AND/OR HIGHTMAPS NOW.
 or is it not possible.
 I tried to make them as for example for the brujahs:
 (normalttzname)_normal.ttz and (normaltthname)_normal.tth
 but it doesnt really work.
 What to do ?

                I know the game supports bumpmaps. There are console commands for enabling and disabling them. (you might want to make sure BumpMaps are enabled on your version of the game). However, I have no experience with importing textures with bumpmaps.
 
 I dont have the time or patience to look into it for you, but I will tell you what I WOULD DO... if I had the time:
 
 Extract all pack files
 Install CYGWIN
 
 Do a global search for all .vmt files and copy them to a single directory. Then from cygwin shell, use :
 
 cat `ls` | sort | uniq > all.txt
 
 to parse the files and create a listing of all unique metadata tags. Hopefully there is a vmt tag that will obviously jump out at you that you need to set to enable bumpmaps. I know you have to edit the VMT files to get transparent textures to work. It makes sense that you probably have to place something in there to specify that a texture has bumpmap info as well.
 
 Also note that going to TGA at any point during your conversion process would remove your bumpmap data. So hopefully you went directly from Gimp or Adobe or whatever program you are using into DDS. Finally... there are a LOT of flags in VPKTool for converting DDS to TTZ. Make sure you understand what those flags mean. It may be that you need to check one of them to get the bumpmap info to translate.
 
 Good luck.

                You might want to check out VV or the shark thing in the fish market as both of those have normal maps stored in the pack files.  I have only played the game through once and did not notice if they work but would assume not as none of the models store NBT's in their vertex format.

                Vampire/materials/stone/bar.vmt:
 
 "LightmappedGeneric"
 {
    "$basetexture" "stone/bar"
    "$bumpmap" "stone/bar_normal"
 }
 
 It looks like the normal map is stored as a seperate ttz/tth file. Like Crud said, may or may not work on a character model, but the only way to find out is to try.

                well, atm i didnt do any female pc skins yet,
 so i would take everything you got.
 And THX that u registered at my forum.
 I gave you a LeaderStatus right away.
 And the uploading thing,
 its enough if you just upload the files you changed.
 You can upload them all toghether in a zip folder.
 for the skins of caracters, its ok like this, but im not
 such an expert with sounds, so it wold help if there is
 a small description of the place in the Vampire/... folders.
 THX ALOT TO YOU !!!
 and you will find every other screenshots, on my forum !
 Oh and yeah almost forgot, i just added some normalmaps to them
 in the future i wanna bring alos some hightmasp into it =)
 THX AGAIN CLOUD9 !!!
