Dark Realm Update September 2016

This release has been superseded by the October 2016 update.
Lenora has continued her monthly streak of Dark Realm updates and here is the release for September 2016. Following some recent support requests I have answered on Facebook, I should make it clearer: This skinpack is for Vampire the Masquerade- Redemption multiplayer, NOT Bloodlines! The following information, including instructions and links to download, is provided on her behalf. Enjoy!


This version is COMPLETELY COMPATIBLE with the previous version.

However, if for some reason your game crashes after installing this version, please empty your crypt folder.


1) DELETE these files if you have them currently installed: BLUEORB Proppack.nob, Cigarettes.nob, Eliza.nob, Jason Jindrax.nob, Julio.nob, LenoraMinogue2.nob, ±PeR±Props.nob, Roman_Mod.nob, Sheliah’s Wing Pack, and TheMan.nob (John Costello skin). These packs have been incorporated into the Darkrealm skins and props.

Note: There is now NO overlap between the original, unmodified WTDpack01.nob. So if a particular map calls for this pack, you must install WTDpack01.nob separately.

2) Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_Skins_Core_09.13.16.

This core download is all you need to have access to player skins and npcs. However, to have full access to NPCs, STs will have to spawn a base model npc and equip that character’s upgrade to get the desired look.


Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_NPC_Add_on_09.13.16.

ABOUT THE EXTENDED NPC LIST ADD ON: This optional add on file is designed as a time-saving tool to help STs spawn npcs easier. You do not have to install this file to use the core Dark Realms skins. However, many hosts use it unless it causes instability. The extended npc list add on file file allows you to directly spawn npcs without having to spawn a base npc model and equipping it with an upgrade. This add on file is completely compatible with the core Darkrealm skins. So you can include it or delete the extended npc add on file without worrying about impacting player skins. However, deleting the add on file will impact npcs on your saved maps.

5) PROP AND ITEM PACK: Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_Props_09.13.16.

Note: These props and items can be installed separately of the Darkrealm skins. The skins are in no way dependent on having these props and items installed.

KNOWN CONFLICTS: Dark Realms Skins may or may not work with ±EOTW± or ±PER± skin packs since these are older incarnations of the Dark Realms Skins. You take your chances if you install them. The Six Skinpack.nob will usually only work with the Darkrealm Skins core and props downloads. Though you can always try it…but at your own risk. In general, avoid using too many extra skins, maps, or other mods with Dark Realms since this mod is huge and poor vamp can only handle so much.

HELP, I’M CRASHING: If you’re crashing with just the Darkrealm Skins core installed, you might have to just bite the bullet and remove other maps, skins, or props from your main vampire directory. I’d recommend starting with the maps, as they can really take a toll on the game’s stability.

** Note on Prop Selection: If you’re having trouble selecting the rugs, move your cursor along the edge of the rug until you can select it. If you’re having trouble selecting the paintings, move your cursor directly beneath them near the floor.

*** THANKS EVERYONE! *** As usual, please distribute or use this mod however you wish. Feel free to borrow any skins you’d like for your own packs or use these to make your own skins. My thanks to each of you for continuing to give me feedback on ways to improve these packs. Please enjoy ***
