Uncensored version of Unofficial Patch
« on: February 14, 2020, 09:21:42 pm »
As of the unofficial patch 10.3, the patch creators have taken it upon themselves to censor the game as they seem fit (unless this is something that was not in the game originally?) with:

 - Removed seminude prostitute from SM again and from Chinatown too

Semi nude prostitutes. Im a grown adult. I dont need to be protected by strangers from the real world and its video game representations.

I want to play the game as it was intended + fixes without censorship from the seemingly virtue signaling community. What is the most stable and latest build that allows me to do this?

I may have misunderstood this particular patch note, but this sort of revisionist patching by modders is unacceptable.

Edit: Just like to add that i cannot state how much i appreciate the effort by the unofficial patch team despite not seeing eye to on the above matter. I just dont have time for revisionist history or creative liberties that remove the original features/vision of the original creators.

Edit 2: Would like to add that ive never played the game before, but am currently setting everything up for a first playthrough and this little bit of info via patch notes was something i stumbled upon.

Thanks

The seminude prostitutes in SM were an addition of the patch and not in the original game. People explained to me that they don't fit, so I removed them again. In the same vein I think they don't fit in Chinatown as well...

My apologies and thank you for the info.

Im just a little apprehensive due to all the crazy things happening in gaming since for a awhile. Just want to play older games as they were intended.

Mods please lock thread.

This thread is incredibly fucking funny to me. One mention of a replaced character model, and you have the nerve to call the community a bunch of "virtue signalers" and "history revisionists" - without looking up any of the context.

My good god, dude. The only "crazy thing happening in gaming since a while back" is this sudden influx of reactionaries who embarrass themselves over things they don't know anything about.

"Apprehensive" is one thing, "paranoid" is another completely. I love this white-knighting for Troika, whose creative vision you couldn't possibly conceive of - especially never having played the game before, and presumably not knowing much about it.

...

All because Zoë Quinn was accused of pulling a favor one time and suddenly it's every man at the gates. As if nobody's ever called in a favor before.

"without looking up any of the context."

I attempted to look up the context, but kept falling upon various/possible spoilers. Further more, the patch notes dont always refer to what content is original, restored or patch team created from scratch. I did state that "unless this is something that was not in the game originally?"

I also have every right to assume the worse due to what has happened to gaming since...2014 or so. Entertainment in general. With everything from Booth Babes to Mass Effect Andromeda, Devil may Cry 5, the temper tantrum over MGSVs Quiet to Star Wars and Ghostbusters 2016 etc etc, Im not being unreasonable or paranoid in assuming that a patch note referring to the removal of adult content is virtue signaling/censorship. There are plenty examples to back up my concerns.

The gaming industry hates women...well, attractive women. The only White Knights are the bullies and predators who use feminism to attack people for wrong think.


"All because Zoë Quinn was accused of pulling a favor one time and suddenly it's every man at the gates."

While i do know who zoe quinn is, i have no idea what this favor thing is youre referring to. I dont care to know either. That damage that women along with Anita sarnankansny or whatever her last name is, has not made the industry or hobby better.

I can understand where you are coming from, being myself rather dissappointed by SJW influence like in the SW sequels and Ghostbusters remakes or recently the last Terminator movie and The Outer Worlds. But be assured that I did the contrary for Bloodlines and that I uncensored a lot of stuff that even Troika was forced to cut at the time. Like gore at the beheading and all the hooker blowjobs they planned and then cut on the hubs!

Warning, tangent below.

Like the 99% of people, Im not one to get off on movie/video game violence/sex etc... for me its more about how those two things fit into the universe of the story and its characters that are being told and that if they are excluded and its pretended that those things dont exist, it comes across as a disingenuous and sterile portrayal of that world. At that point, what story are you trying to tell and whos your target audience. Children with fake 18+ ID? 

For me, the sex and violence often dont need to be shown (Sicario for example, the scenes without violence were more intense). Personally i find sex scenes in movies to be a waste of screen and viewers time, like it serves about as much purpose in a love story as it would to dedicate screentime to show the characters going to the bathroom after consuming a meal, like i get it. Then theres God of War 1-3 that turns sex (and violence, obviously) into a game mechanic, it makes sense in that world and assists the player progress, but image Rambo without guns/violence. You cant include X, but you can limit the extent of X, because to remove it entirely breaks the immersion.

Its like being asked to log in to YT to listen to one of Eminems songs rated 18+ by Google or the uploader, only for that song to then feature cuts/bleeps where the profanity is. Im not there for the swearing, but dont check my ID to then treat me like a child.


Thanks again for all your hardwork. Im playing older games as its become almost impossible to find anything like what we use to have and tbh, i think theyre better than the majority of games released today.

Anyway, Im just venting and preaching to the choir at this point.

Theres a probability that Saddam Hussain had more WMDs than Anitia has achievements unlocked. That women could care less about games.

I know she couldn't care less. I don't think about her one bit. She is irrelevant. Woman being equal is fine. Shame it truly is the opposite... Computer games or female genital mutilation? She has got her priorities straight. I will leave it at that.

I will not lower the tone of the forum with the BS, nor give the likes of her platform or any recognition.
