I've tried, out of curiosity, to attack the serial killer in the diner while he was on the phone. Same issue with Kilpatrick, he didn't stopped to talk. But if you attack him enough, before the end of the call, he transform into his protean form while still talking to the phone, slashing you without ending his cellphone animation. Weird  :tongue:

Sadly, I can't really do anything about this as we know from the answering machine, that he finished this call. Just imagine he knows that he can take a beating and must set up his trap first. At least I fixed it so that he will not phone and attack at the same time ;)!

I think it's illogical that he should make the call when the player first visits the diner. Especially when you say in the Bertram dialog that the player goes to sleep before blowing up the warehouse.
The killer says "...we're on for tonight...", but it's at least the next night before the player can get to downtown and play basketball with Milton's head.

What if instead it's converted in a cutscene? The camera is switched at his back while he watches outside the window, so the conversation won't be interrupted at all.

That sounds like an idea, but I don't know if I should turn this easter egg into something people are pointed to. As for the day night cycle, maybe I'll remove the Bertram line altogether as timing in Bloodlines will always be a mystery...

Can't we make dinner no combat zone for duration of call?

That would indeed be the much easier option...

A temporary Elysium? That would be a bit weird, only powerful vamps can set up one and he is just a caitiff....

Elysiums aren't done right in Vtmb, any non combat zone is just called one, just like Mercurios.

Technically Mercurio's place is an Elysium thanks to LaCroix. There are non-combat zones in the game without the explanation of a vampire of power needing an Elysium?

Zhao's warehouse and Red Dragon 2nd floor come to mind.

In my opinion the Elysium areas in Bloodlines are not handled in a convincing way, in most places the player wouldn't even know that he has entered Elysium, so I think the diner is okay. After all there is a powerful vampire there and at that moment in the story you can't defeat him either ;)!

I would have liked more a cutscene. But then you'll have to wait for it to end.... Oh well, Elysium makes sense too and it's easier to apply.  :58_59:

Recently played as Gangrel. When you move to another location in combat form, more fists spawn in your inventory. However, if transformed again, they will disappear.
Also, I don't really like the new combat skin. It's less detailed than the original, and I feel like I'm playing a werewolf parody. The humanoid bat looked more fitting :irritated:

If you want the old warform back even in the Plus Patch, open Unofficial_Patch\models\character\monster\animalism_beastform and replace all animalism_beastform* files with copies of the animalism_baastform* files renamed to animalism_beastform*.
