« on: September 01, 2022, 12:06:16 pm »
Hello together, this is a big one! Although it fixes only little of the core game, now you can play some missions as a human hunter. I started with the Hallowbrook Atrium, but I might add more if people like it. So take a spin and tell me what you think!

Dishes quest? Why was it removed?

Not the quest, only the log. I added this for plus and it does not belong into basic as it wasn't in the original game ;).

A few findings.

Imagine, you are in Chinatown and use Shield of Faith after this run to the Red dragon and go inside (or somewhere else) - stats from Shield of Faith are still yours. Even if you change your clan.

Yeah, if you really change clan after this your vampire character is in the 4th armor model, but inventory be written you're in light clothing.

If you change clans with the console you need to restart the game twice for all the assets to switch over.

Well then, let's go.  :rock:

In the game menu, it is displayed that the version is 11.2 and not 11.3.

Experience points are incorrectly written in the VTMB Walkthrough file when passing the Hallowbrook hotel. It is written that OUTCOME: 9 XP, although we can get so many points only with an experience artifact, that is, we should write 7-9.
In addition, it is written that for a deal with Andrey we will get 7 experience points. You all the same changed your mind, and decided to give experience for a deal with Andrey?  :grin:

Now for the hunters. After choosing the character for which we want to start the game (one of the three), we should start the game immediately in the monastery, without choosing characteristics, so that we cannot accidentally select a vampire. And so that the screensaver with the sire and the scene in the theater from the usual game does not start, where our sire is in the end a simple bandit, which looks very funny. By the way, this convinced me that making it possible to go through the entire game as a Hunter does not make sense, but making it through some locations is a great idea.

When viewing the Inquisitor in the character menu, his cape is shaking wildly, but in the game itself everything is in order.

I have a couple of ideas on how to improve these missions.
It would be cool if the character in the monastery, with whom you need to talk to exit the location, could sell weapons to us, in addition, it would be cool if we could choose which locations we want to visit through it. For example, in addition to the hotel, it can be a location with Bishop Vick, a Temple with the Chinese and the Nosferatu sewers.

You should give the hunter character normal clothes, and not immediately a body armor, because because of this, pumping agility is now impossible.

Faith still cannot be replenished with prayer (f key), so far it can only be done through the console?

New findings.


(s1) If you reset stats you get extra points.
(s2) In the intro map you can find a key and open the door led in under the floor. The big boulder blocked the next way. I think you left this part for just fun. As a made hunters cannot raise dexterity above 8.
(s3) If you run all of the hotel and enter Andrei's lair, your quest log is updated. Also you can fight with him and continue this quest.

Fixed, I just forgot to copy the file over.

This is wrong, according to the experience table file you get 3 for finding his lair, 4 for killing him and 2 for reporting to LaCroix which makes 9 XP.

I forgot to correct that though, fixed!

Sadly I don't think this is possible during the character creation. You need to go to the sheet to at least name your character!

I don't think I can fix that.

This is what I plan to do, after all you start with 500$ and talking to different hunters can give you different missions :).

You can still raise Dexterity only it won't be visible at first. But I tested a bit without armor and you have no chance to survive!

You need to reassign the Pray key for this to work, was this not mentioned in the monestary popup?

Yes, I wanted to show that this plays after Bloodlines' story without spoiling too much.

Quote

This is because you are wearing the body armor.

Yeah, I haven't change that map yet and I might have to think how far I should go...

I also made saving/loading and changing maps with Numina possible now, thanks to tips from the great EntenSchreck :)! Check out the updated version that I will upload later today.

Right, I totally forgot about Lacroix.  :laugh:

In order for the dexterity pumping to be displayed and there were no problems with survival, you can first give the character ordinary clothes, and when we talk with the hunter, he would give our character a body armor before the mission, in my opinion, it is logical.

Yes, I figured out the prayer, it's a pity there is no animation and when praying, faith is replenished too quickly.

It also looks like you made our hunter immortal, I can’t even die from a barrel, my health doesn’t drop lower than in the screenshot.

Holy Light works quite randomly, besides, it is not clear why the discipline duration timer works when it is used. In the prelude with this, everything was excellent.

Faith Shield at all levels of pumping along the way acts the same. And it seems that the description of the discipline does not correspond to its work in reality.

Spirit Heal restores the entire health bar.

You didn't have any problems surviving in the atrium? I surely did, but now that you can save I think it makes more sense to give normal clothes and make the armor available later for players who need it. This will probably not be in the upcoming release though...

To show an animation I would need to change all maps, which I am not willing to do. And I like the quick result!

That is a weird new bug that I need to figure out first.

The Prelude I uses Animalism which I can't do in case there will ever be a true vampire vs hunters multiplayer. And yes, Holy Light sometimes doesn't work or it works rather late.

The character sheet says something else. Do you claim there is no soak increase at all?

This is intended. In the unbalanced maps of the original game you have no time ;).

It was more difficult than if I had played as a vampire, but given the instant healing and speed of faith recovery, it is quite feasible.  :cool:

Well, okay, it's a pity of course, but the pop-up icon that faith has been restored annoys me more.

Yeah, I didn't notice any damage absorption effect. Just a reminder that Bach's shield generally made it invulnerable for some time, but it was balanced and was on topic. I'm not sure if it's worth doing the same for the regular hunter we're playing as. It will be too easy.

That is actually a trick to at least get a sound played. If anybody knows another way without editing all maps, please comment!

Hm, I did some testing and even raised the effect to +2 to improve it. EntenSchreck assumes that soak of humans is much less.

Perhaps the nature of this bug lies in the character creation menu - I tried to SM by console and change clan to hunter, for testing can I die from police or not. I died. :rofl:


P.S. A link on the beginning of the topic leads to 11.2 not to 11.3.
