PostSubject: Some Questions   Thu Sep 26, 2013 4:10 pm

I have Camarilla Edition installed now but I have a few things I need to ask:

I've searched on the forum already but didn't get a clear answer: How does one go about turning the blood timer system down to the lowest (or all the way off)? I prefer it to be as low as possible (within gameplay immersion) so I do feel that I need to have to rush all the time my blood goes down.

How can I change the some of the Disciplines back to the way they were in vanilla VtMB? I like some of the changes, but I miss the old effects of Disciplines like Dementation.

Changing the bloodloss-rate is easy. Just open vamputil.py with an editor, find the function onBLEvent(), and change the definition for BLOOD_MAX_COUNT.
If you really want to turn it all off, comment the lines with scheduletask(...) out. Comments in python are marked with #

Changing the disciplines requires a deeper understanding of the game-files. I can't give an easy to use recipe to that. It involves changing lots of files in different directories.

I've downloaded this program called "Cream" which is supposed to be a python editor. I've actually decided I don't want to turn it off, just down. I like the immersive feel of actually having to feed. So, then, what is the most immersive lowest I should turn it to? Wink 

As for the Disciplines, I'll just learn to play with the new ones, although I will miss my Mass Hysteria and Vision of Death. Razz

I prefer using notepad++ for my modding. It recognizes and highlights python syntax, allows me to open lots of files in the same session, and even has a simple file compare feature. But esentially, even notepad will do if you don't intend to do complex modding.

For the time, you must decide for yourself what you think as comfortable but still challenging enough. As it is coded in CE, the timer is scheduled once every half minute. So the 7+pc.stamina means, you loose blood every 4 minutes if you have stamina 1, 5 at stamina 3, and 6 minutes at stamina 5.
I'd suggest you try for 5 minutes at stamina 1, plus a minute for each further point of stamina. That would be 8+2*pc.stamina.
Give it a try and find out what suits you the best. Making changes to python will not cause problems with your save files. Just be careful about indentation when you edit python scripts. Due to the simple structure, this language is a bitch for indentation.
