I would simply like to ensure that Vaulderie has full moddability, compared to Bloodlines, which had many hardcoded values :P such as, no discipline higher than 5, better hotkeys.
Please? if anything, as much as Bloodlines :)

wonder if it's possible also to have better lighting!

If it wasn't clear before, one of the main reason for this project is to grant proper modding solutions, and since everything is written from scratch codewise, we can expose anything that matters for modders, including adding and replacing textures and models, a full toolset from where you can create or edit new items, weapons, NPCs, everything with a nice visual editor, mostly available in JSON format.
We're also looking into the option to for a Python implementation in Unity, allowing further scripting similar to the original game. It all depends if certain things cannot be done otherwise, which we'll definitely going to discuss about in a future development blog.

If we can get full modding, and I'm halfway competent at it, I will develop a much better table-top-oriented Protean Discipline.

obviously with the updated rules...

then again, I am very interested on the tech aspects.. it will be a fuller open-world? will we be able also to "go beyond" the masquerade setting, for example, and add exotic features such as flight?

For the moment the main focus is to get the original settings done, then we'll see what the future brings. That doesn't mean creating such settings via modding is excluded.

So atrblizzard, are you back from your small sabbatical already, since you are active here again :)?

More or less, I'm slowly resuming active development, so expect things to go back to normal development from now on.

Cool! Bloodlines had another Steam sale which moved the Unofficial Patch into the 20 most popular mods at ModDB :). I don't know the download numbers yet, maybe Sam can provide some, but the interest certainly is still there...

Sounds about right, if anything, the interest is higher now than before, with having no more WoD MMO and such. I'm pretty sure the download numbers are high enough, as the interest on Bloodlines is still growing even to this point.
