Way back when during the height of its popularity I used to mod, hub, and skin Redemption. I also played with a PnP group that used WoD mod and quite a few hubs. Well after this last move I've been going through stuff, and I found my old VtM:Redemption backup CD with all my personally made skins/hubs as well as some others I had saved. There's at least 4 dozen skin packs and hubs here. I'll go through them later using my GoG version of Redemption on my laptop and see which ones are bunk or not, but is there any place to host them? I know the main P-V site has some stuff up but how would I go about this? Its mostly its a lot of things that aren't already on this site and I'd love for them to not be lost to time.

Stuff like the original New Orleans by Night, Central London Res, a few mega Mappacks as well as my own City by Night, would be a pretty good asset to the community. If there is any interest lemme know.

Heh I was hoping you'd see this :> I know we talked about it a bit. I'm pretty excited to have found the cd again.

Ok here is the directory list of all the working nob files from the old backup CD. I tested all of these with the exception of the STorb and WoDMoD1.02 with Vanilla Redemption that was bought off GoG. They all work though a few packs will have duplicates of other skins or maps, notably CotN (which i made as a hub) has Central lon hub and french lon res in it as well as a few other maps like the oldmansion map. I don't have credit txt files for all the original artists and compilers anymore, so its as is.

Also note there are some mature packs here (BSDHERM for example) as well as a couple of skins in packs missing texture files but otherwise they still play and do not cause crashes. Not much I can do about that since I no long remember how to fix that (or have the SDK tools.)

Some of these are in various packs Javokis and others have released over the years but I don't recognize some of them. If we don't have them in the P-V files area, upload them   :rock:

It can be a hassle to go through a large collection of assets and determine which ones have already been distributed through mainstream packs.  On the up side, most of the large packs have had their template files stabilized and the textures optimized for modern video cards.  Anyways, the most useful upload would be a collection of your unique work that is not already available in other uploads.  An easy(er) way to identify files that are already out there might be to have all of us point out files that we recognize from other packs.  For instance, the following items jump out right away as being mainstream and readily available...

SWAT
Celtic Realm
Central London Hub
CotN
Escape into Darkness
Grim Haven
Grim Subway
New Jericho
New Orleans by Night v2
Private House
Rabbit
ST Orb
VDark City
WoD Mod 1.02
WtD Mega Pack

About a dozen others sound halfway familiar, but I'm not sure.  Some of them are completely unfamiliar to me.

CotN was made by me, as was Emilypack, MAlolly and Kaisyd. XD I know CotN has quite a few maps already within it as it was a custom hub combining all the vanilla maps + french londres + central lond res + old mansion + private house + grim haven + grim subway + nosferatu haven.

Theres quite a few like the NYC.nob which is an alternate version of some of the vanilla maps. I used to play with Deadsera, The_Bent_Spear, Nameless_One and a few of the other skinners/modders so I ended up with alot of their resources or earlier packs.

Some of the skin packs loop as well, I'll have to figure out what is duplicated or older versions of what, and then I'll just seperate them as maps/skins/addons.

I'll also add the TbM NYC maps, Holtburg, Castlevania,and farm (most likely). It'll be interesting to see what some of the others are.

Haha, np. I'm renaming the skin packs to better identify them as well as add some credit based on the file info.




Ok I went through everything and figured out what files were duplicating everything. For simplicity sake I packed it all together in one RAR, seperating skins and weapons from map packs. I retested everything and made sure they all work. Compressed its 160MB. This way lets everyone decide what they want and what to use.

Yeah doing so. Made one of just the maps and one of just the skins. The skin one is 67.8MB and the map one is 92.1MB. Uploading them to the site as fast as my connection allows. They'll be under Aydoo's Ancient Skin Collection and Aydoo's Ancient Map Collection. I'll direct link once they're up.

Meh the site won't let me upload them. Keeps giving an error. Anyway I can send them to you and have you do it?

Yeah, I'll figure it out. Also send me your descriptions. What was the error out of curiosity? I want to make sure there isn't a problem others will experience.

Collection of maps from many authors during the height of
Redemption's popularity. Compatable with vanilla GoG Redemption and
1.1. Use at your own violation.


Change Map to skins for the other. /lazy.


Error was pretty much a server timeout from taking too long.

Since I couldn't upload em here, I went ahead and hosted them at Megaupload.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=E2T2WQCI  Skin Collection.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NT9BELIL Map Collection.

Sig will have them here on the site in no time, but for those who want a first go these are an alternate DL link.
