In my UP playthroughs, I found him always upstairs in the Asylum.

Yes. Upstairs.

Also is not needed talk with him in front of the clinic previously to get the quest.

I like the changes to the Library quest, but:

Scott's note says he's hiding in the "the shop on the move in Santa Monica" and that the password is the "city of the coffin," which are subtle enough. Players don't get told directly but it's not hard to figure out.

The quest log, however, stills says "At the end of the Santa Monica pier you found signs of a bloody fight and a hastily scrawled paper telling you to investigate the Santa Monica Coffee Shop. The password is Scott's clan."

The first part removes the need to work out what "shop on the move" means: it directly tells you it's the coffee shop. The second part is flat out wrong, since the password has been changed. I'd suggest something like:

"At the end of the Santa Monica pier you found signs of a bloody fight and a hastily scrawled paper telling you to investigate a 'shop on the move' in Santa Monica. The password is the 'city of the coffin,' whatever that means."

I have a problem with the library lasombra. It seems animalism isn't only ineffective but also makes him harder to defeat.
Looks like only the first hit with spectral wolf or pestillence causes damage at all. But the main problem is that during the time he is incapacitated by the discipline effect, he has already started the teleport animation which makes him invulnerable to bullets.

Wesp, you should also take a look at the replies for prince2.dlg line 81.
I don't think you should have both sets of replies available when you're totally out of his grace. Looks a bit weird when you have the same two replies twice.

I just imagined this scene: the lasombra, when he's in real difficulty (like at 5% of life), he uses all his powers left to cloak all the ritual chamber in pure darkness. You can see the player, the hud, particles, floating bullets and swinging melee weapons but nothing else

Oops, I forgot about that and fixed it in a similar way to what you proposed!

Weird, this works fine on my system so it must have been a random bug.

Fixed! (Also everything you pointed out to me with your PMs.)

What file(s) do I mod to get the effects I used to get from modding clandoc000.txt? I tried a complete rewrite and then one simple change, nothing happens. Using the one in "..\Steam\steamapps\common\Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines\Unofficial_Patch\vdata\system".

Yes, that is the right one. But also make sure you always start the patched game from steam by appending the correct launch options!

Oh, I've been starting from the icon that the UP installs on the desktop.

Thanks.

Edit: No luck. I must be doing something wrong. I'll keep plugging away at it.

Edit 2: Ok, as a test I went to the Tremere clandata section, set all the attributes alternating between 1 and 2; so strength 1, dexterity 2, stamina 1, charisma 2 and so on. Then I went to abilities and set them rotating from 1-3; so Brawl 1, dodge 2, intimidation 3, subterfuge 1 and so on (skipping the commented out ones like Animal_Ken and Occult). Finally I added three disciplines and changed the stats similarly to 1/2/1/2/1/2. I also checked that my steam settings had " -game Unofficial_Patch" in the launch options and it was not misspelled.

Started the game, skipped the questions, changed the clan selection three times, changed gender selection twice, changed history three times then went to the stats page...absolutely no effect whatsoever.

Then the stats defined there probably are not used, or were intended for multiplayer. After all in the single player game, all clans start with the same stats!

Ah, that makes sense now. I needed to make the changes in a different ClanData section that doesn't have

         "TemplateName"         "mp-tremere"

Thanks!

Is there a reason you can no longer sell skillbooks?

Yes. This was removed because it's very obviously an exploit to sell them to vendors, who magically copy them, so you can buy them back multipled times!

Is it just a change to the value of the item, set to zero so the vendor simply won't buy them?

Edit: "Fixed" it, now I can get rid of them instead of having to store them in my haven stash.
