Update: The festivities are over and this release has been superseded by the new Dark Realm New Year 2018 Update.
Lenora has updated her Dark Realm pack for Vampire the Masquerade- Redemption Multiplayer. I’ve decided to call this the Festivity Update, since it has some new Christmassy props. This replaces last fortnight’s release.
COMPATIBILITY WITH PREVIOUS VERSION:
This version is COMPLETELY COMPATIBLE with THESE EXCEPTIONS with the previous version.
*** DELETE Khalid_Coat_V if you’re currently using it for an upgrade/npc.
*** DELETE Khalid_Suit2_V if you’re currently using it for an upgrade/npc.
*** DELETE the Baal_Dante upgrade/npc from your characters and saved maps. This upgrade has been updated and moved to Tahir_RedCoat.
***If your game crashes for some reason after installing this version, please empty your crypt folder.***
Download and extract into your main vampire directory: Darkrealm_Skins_Core_12.14.17.
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_12.14.17.
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_12.14.17.
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, Carnera.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.
– WHATS NEW –
> Updated Merlinda skin!! Now includes a version of the Roman dress.
The upgrade can be found on the item list as:
Merlinda_Sacro (Roman dress)
> Updated Baal skin! This skin now includes a new face for most upgrades.
Miroir_de_katerina (Animated Dark Mirror)
*** The Khalid_Coat upgrade/npc now has a pale vampiric skin tone.

> Continuing support for NPCS! Just like always, all player skins and their corresponding upgrades can be used for NPCS.
** 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 FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT FOR THIS MOD!*** 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. Please enjoy!
