The Let's Play Series by Javokis Continues...
Posted by Javokis on Monday, March 3rd, 2014
A lot has been finished in the Let's Play Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption featuring the Age of Redemption 2012 mod series since last posted here. If you have only been keeping track here at PV then you have missed out on several additional episodes. The series is one episode away from completion. There has been much covered in the AoR 2014 planner that was also covered in the series. If you're just now aware of this project then I suggest you check out the following links:
(Fastest way to see what is going on with the Let's Play series is to subscribe to the Javokis YouTube channel here)
(I post regular updates at the e-mods.net facebook page here)
(And of course the AoR 2014 planner is up on my e-mods.net forum)
If you are interested in seeing what all can be done with Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption, please bookmark the above links and check them regularly. Thanks.

Javokis Starts "Let's Play" series for Age of Redemption 2012
Signothorn on Wednesday, 08 January 2014
Javokis started this Age of Redemption "Let's Play". It'll be a regular series he'll be running, that shows not only strategy tips, but his mindset behind some of the great changes and fixes he's made to Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption in this mod, and his plans for AoR 2014.
He also shares his great and almost unhuman data bank of Redemption knowledge, regarding the game's mechanics and much more. Please check out this video and pick up the mod at e-mods.net, if you haven't tried it out yet. He's showing off the single player aspects, but it also allows you to play single player missions in multi-player co-op, using the Tunngle VPN client.

Change.org Petition for CCPGames to Prioritize the WoD MMO
Signothorn on Monday, 23 December 2013
This petition was posted on a World of Darkness page and I thought this would be good to share here. CCP has had a very different approach to game development and how they communicate with the WOD community, and there may be more going on behind the scenes than we realize. However, I feel it is a good idea to at least let them know there is still great interest in the MMO and would like to be informed on it's development on a more regular basis.

Out for Vitae (A Redemption Movie Project)
Signothorn on Saturday, 1 June 2013
I've been working on a Vampire the Masquerade:Redemption movie for some time now, recreating scenes in Steven Seagal films and blending it all into one story line. I'm using E-Mod 1.8, Paine's Particle Mover, Maps of the Ages, Gigapack and as many other models I can find in order to showcase the flexibility of the NOD engine and storytelling in Redemption. I'm up to broadcasting Episode 3 now, I'm working on Episode 4. When I started the project, my rig wasn't so great and I was using Windows Movie Maker, so the video quality will improve as the episodes progress.

Antitribu Update and News Updates
Posted by Signothorn on Thursday, 16 April 2012
So P-V has been lacking in content promotion lately. I take full responsibility for that, I took a promotion resulting in 70+ hour work weeks and didn't even have enough time for family, let alone promoting stuff on the site. Well, I quit the job and will have more time going forward.:)
Anyway, the Antitribu Mod team for Bloodlines has posted a new video of a unique gargoyle companion:
New Companion – The Gargoyle – Rockbiter - Mod DB
We'll keep you updated as more news develops. Discuss the mod in our forum and at http://bloodlinesantitribu.com/

Barnabus is also working on a big map that is also on E-Mods:
Javokis has also said he'll be releasing a new version of AoR later this year.

Go and get it here: http://www.patches-scrolls.de/vampire_bloodlines.php#79
While searching for stuff to include in a possible library level, I found
over fifty unused props and restored them! Because this changed many maps,

Camarilla Edition v1.5 Released!
Posted by Signothorn on Monday, 31 October 2011
Malkav has released a new version of Vampire the Masquerade:Bloodlines Camarilla Edition mod.
- updated to the UP 7.8
- the tutorial can now be done mostly without Jack. Just tell him to make it short, or to leave you alone, and then ask him where you can get blood...
- the e-mail college now replaces the lore books. With the college you can now obtain 3 more xp than you would be able to squeeze out of the books.
- custom music is now available in a lot of places. See the info files in the \clubmusic subfolder for details.
- the blooddolls, and most of the customers in the main clubs have been randomized now, so you don't meet the same people every time you visit a club.
- there are some more sins to confess to Venus, after you dealt with Boris. They are more game related, and if you are lucky, you can even get Venus as a blooddoll.
- the Bertram email quest to get the Nosferatu haven earlier in the game is completely overworked.
- the new hunter quest from the TFN mod is included.
Discuss the mod here in our forum or on the Camarilla Homepage:

Bloodlines Unofficial SDK is Here!!! (Sorta)
Posted by Signothorn on Wednesday, 12 October 2011
Fire64 has been working on a SDK for some time now and recently released a new version. It allows content creators to either create or finish maps Troika didn't finish. There are still a few things not quite refined in the SDK but Burgermeister01 has found some work-arounds and it's looking pretty awesome!
The P-V thread discussing this SDK can be found here.
The Grand Masquerade Coverage at Planet-Vampire!
Posted by Signothorn on Thursday, 15 September 2011
We have several folks at The Grand Masquerade Ball this year and will post any info on the WOD MMO and the event as a whole as it's released. Stay tuned, should be some great stuff, I can hardly wait! Also keep a close watch on our forums, lots of discussions taking place about the MMO, we've been covering it since it was first announced.
Some updates from _Username as of 9pm EST on 9/17/2011:
-UPDATE: everybody starts as mortal, and permadearh will be possible.
-Pvp will not be required if people don't want to do it. It will be perma-night.
-Humanity is a trait, attacking others can lower it. If it gets very low, you become a free target to everyone. Very similar to low-security status in Eve.
-Caitiff will not be a playable option at launch.
-Dementation, Presence, etc will work differently against NPCs than other players.
-NYC might be a setting...hard to say, from the wording.
-A quote: "LARP is he inspiration for [the gameplay]"
-Pvp is "very different...both more free and more restrictive" whatever that means.
-"you will never be TOTALLY safe"...sounds like Eve.
-Alternative paths of morality...not at launch, but they want to include them later.
-Just humans and vampires for quite a while...other critters will be out there, but not playable.
-Floating names over people's heads is optional but not default.
-Player actions will be the main driving force behind the in-game metaplot.
-Diablerie is still being discussed...no verdict yet.
-There will be multiple cities.
-Cerberus is a localization tool to allow multiple game languages. Torpor will not be used in the traditional sense.
Bloodlines Unofficial Patch 7.7 released!
Posted on 19.08.2011 by Wesp5
You can find it here: http://www.patches-scrolls.de/vampire_bloodlines.php#77 and you will find the changelog below (+ denotes a plus version change only). The patch is called beta now, so it's easier for us to do hotfixes, but otherwise it's the same procedure as every year, James ;).
+Fixed Hatter staying unapproachable and a very rare crash at Zhao's.
+Made Vandal quest available later and added an XP for alternatives.
+Changed Zhao bonus XP point condition so you need to kill all Tongs.

Updated Extras weapons to switch depending on view using plus stats.

Added Python 2.7.2 update to Extras directory, thanks ColonelAlias.
Changed installer so it will only update 1.2 vampire.dll for retail.

Unofficial Patch 7.6 is out!
Posted on 15.07.2011 by Wesp5
We'll be releasing localized patches over the following days.
(+) is for Plus Edition players only!
+Restored unused OST music, thanks Rik Schaffer, SteveMV and Kendrel.
+Enabled you to keep Jack's .38 pistol and restored bisexual Phil.
+Added Humanity loss for sending Copper to Nines and no-stake option.

Fixed lost Mercurio email and removed extra Gargoyle XP from basic.

Added Malkavian whispers transcript to Extras, thanks to an unknown.
Fixed Nosferatu and Malkavian detection script of King's Way level.
Replaced ancient Python 2.1 version with 2.7.2, thanks ColonelAlias.
Fixed spawning of Hallowbrook enemies and more minor level details.
This patch features two important things besides the usual stuff:
1) The Python version was updated to fix issues people have when
they use Python elsewhere and to make life easier for modders.
So if you encounter any new Python bugs, please give me feedback!
2) Five unused Bloodlines soundtracks were added that were released
to the public by the composer Rik Schaffer, more details included
in the text file by SteveMV. I put them in levels that featured old
multiple times used tracks, but if you think they would fit better
in other maps, please give me feedback and explain your suggestions.
The new Python version has been removed in the meantime because
of issues with Windows 7 64 bit. Please download UP 7.6b for now!
Another Antitribu Mod video!
Posted by Wesp5 on 19.06.2011
Mc.v9 uploaded another new cool video of their new Animalism Discipline. You can check it out below and here is a short description of the Discipline:
1. On Level 1 you summon several group of ravens, they will distract enemies around you. They will focus on destroying the ravens rather than you.
2. On Level 2 you summon black rats, the also distract enemies, but its very harder for melee enemies to hit them.
3. On Level 3 you will summon a dog, the dog has the ability to attack enemies around you, and its quite strong.
4. On Level 4 you summon a single wolf that will attack your enemies. The wolf is more powerful than the dog and has a higher endurance.

Using Tunngle Instead of Hamachi for Redemption
Posted by Signothorn on Monday, 18 April 2011
Ever have problems with your Redemption crew using newer versions of Hamachi that suck and don't work and helping them for an hour to get them online to play with you? Tired of reading our Hamachi configuration tutorials to make the darn thing connect to someone? Sick of searching the net for a list of channels and passwords to find someone to play with? If so, I have the product for you!
Tunngle is a new-er VPN client that does all the configurations for you, such as network priority ect. Instead of searching multiple channels to find someone, Tunngle uses one large "lobby" for each game that holds up to 255 people at a time. Yesterday Tunngle set up a channel called "Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption" for us to use and Paine and I went on for a while and got on with little problem. Link6746 tried with me earlier and we didn't have any success getting into each other's game but that was likely some random Redemption nonsense we're all used to by now.
Anyway, if you wish to download the client or comment on your successes or failures of using the client, visit this thread.
Also, feel free to use our boards to schedule games, that's what they're there for!
Bloodlines Unofficial Patch 7.4 released!
Posted on 14.04.2011 by Wesp5
This time the basic patch has become a lot more basic :), and again you do not need any prior patch - installing 7.4 over any older patch will work. But make sure to start a new game after installing this patch.
As always, please feel free to post comments and suggestions here. We're still looking for translators for this patch into other languages. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help.

Changes in 7.4:
+Made Danielle stay upon sending Patty to Vandal and removed safe node.

New Models for the Antitribu Mod for Bloodlines
Uploading Problem Fixed
Posted by Signothorn on Friday, 15 April 2011
The issue where P-V members were unable to upload a file larger than 2mb has been resolved, our host must have changed it but regardless you may once again upload your mods up to 100mb in size. There is also an "external links" option where you can add larger mods to the site via an external host when the file size is larger. Our host has been pretty helpful overall but they get their panties in a bunch when we have large files getting a large number of hits so 100mb has to be the limit at least until the end of this year.
Update on Bloodlines Resurgence Project!
Posted by Signothorn on Friday, 9 April 2011
Atrblizzard dropped by PV to show us some progress on the Resurgence project. Resurgence is a project aimed at updating Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines to the newest version the Source engine, which has a SDK. They have nearly all the maps converted at this point, as well as characters. What is left is game coding, which they need a great deal of help with. Without this help, they won't be able to make gameplay possible so step up and volunteer, you'll be a hero to the community! Here's some links to find more info:

Several Redemption Mods Recently Added to Files Area
Posted by Signothorn on 17. January 2011
I wanted to draw some attention to some recently added mods to the P-V file archive. It looks like some old school Redemption players have returned and begun uploading some really cool files that you may not have ever seen before. You too can upload files for Redemption or Bloodlines , all you need to do is go into the Files Area and look for the upload link on the left. Use the drop-down menu to select the specific category of the mod. Please refrain from simply using the Redemption or Bloodlines parent directories, unless your mod doesn't apply to any of the sub categories. Whenever possible, please also upload a screenshot of the mod you are uploading, people are much more likely to try it out.
I also just uploaded the Santa Monica hub from Bloodlines that The Upstart converted for Redemption. A preview video can be found below (slightly NSFW):
