Dark Realm Update October 2017

This release has been superseded by the November 2017 update. Download links are retained below for resolving compatibility issues.

Lenora has returned with another update for her Dark Realm Pack for Vampire the Masquerade- Redemption multiplayer. This release supersedes the September 2017 update.

COMPATIBILITY WITH PREVIOUS VERSION:

This version is COMPLETELY COMPATIBLE with the previous version with THESE EXCEPTIONS:

Remove Diana_RedDemon npc/upgrade from your character skins and saved maps (red demon). This npc/upgrade has been discontinued.

Remove Voyd_Familiar npc/upgrade from your character skins and saved maps (mesh shirt with familiar on shoulder). This npc/upgrade has been MOVED to the Voyd base model.

Remove Renee_GreenPants2 upgrade from your character skins. This upgrade has been discontinued.

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

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_Skins_Core_10.19.17.

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.

2) EXTENDED NPC LIST ADD ON (REMOVE IF GAMES BECOME UNSTABLE. THE CORE DARKREALM SKINS CAN STILL BE USED WITHOUT THIS FILE):

Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_NPC_Add_on_10.19.17.

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 equip 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.

3) PROP AND ITEM PACK: Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_Props_10.19.17.

Note: These props and items can be installed separately of the Darkrealm skins. The skins are not dependent on having these props and items installed.

4) 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.

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.
