Hi everybody!

Finally the wait has an end . I will have version 1.3 ready for delivery by may the 3rd.

The most significant features will be:
- the email college to improve your abilities
- a miniquest, that gives Nosferatu the chance to get the Sewer Haven sooner
- the poster and Mitnik gift quest fixed and changed (I won't tell any details here)
- all magic items / quest rewards as in the plus patches
- If you're a real man Bastard (Bitch) with humanity of 3 or 4, the hunters will be more aggressive and try to get at you with only one masquerade violation.

There will also be some typos and other misunderstandings in the manual and disciplne descriptions cleared up, and a few matters like Mr. Ox's eyes are changed / repaired.

- geek

Edit: Here is a table for the amount of blood you need for the email college. This is probably better than just the formula to compute it

lvl 1-2 3-4 5-6 7-8 9-10
0 11 10 9 8 7
1 9 8 7 6 5
2 11 10 9 8 7
3 13 12 11 10 9
4 15 14 13 12 11
The left column shows the current level of the ability you want to raise, the top row is the sum of your wits+scholarship, and the center fields (in red) show the blood you need.

Will this still be based on Wesp's 6.5 UP, or will this be based round one of the newer patches he's released?

I will stay at 6.5, at least for this version. The only change is the map of the tattoo parlor, there I use the new one.

The wait is almost over Smile
Childe of Malkav can you post some further explanations about the email college to improve your abilities.
What is it exactly?

The wait is over Exclamation

For the email college, I've put a chapter into the manual to explain, and also explained the most important features in the corresponding mails and the questlog for your characters.

Basically you spend money to improve your abilities. It also costs blood to represent the time spent on studies.
I don't know, what to tell you more here and now scratch

Hello everybody,

there is one thing I have forgotten to write into the readme for the update:

In Ce 1.3 you can learn the abilities from Beckett in the museum, Bertram for the cd quest, and Romero in the cemetery up to level 5. And at Romero's, you can choose, if you want money, learn firearms, or get the gun.

Aren't these changes going to disbalance the game? We are going to get really strong if we can raise so many disciplines and abilities.

Hello all on this forums.

Even though this is a very old game and a lot of people i'm sure don't even know it, make no mistake, this is by far one of the best games ever made even in vannila version.

After some research and geting aimed towards wesp patches and other mods, i have to say the camarilla edition is what makes this game at its best. It realy feels there's a lot of love into this mod. Everything is clear as water, the manual is full of attention and professionalism, the changes are realy well thought and i generaly agree with most of them (unlinke other mods).


Just wanted to register here on this forums and make my word of apreciation to the team behind this mod and thank you for all the hard work made into it.
I'm quite sure you made this out of dedication and passion for the game, but even so i would like to make sure you guys know there's people out there that do apreciate your hard work.

Now, back to another playthrough, this time with tremere.


THanks again.

Yes, Thanks for the appreciation Laughing

It's really good to read a mail like this one. Usually it's half the people complaining that the blood loss is too fast, and the other half complaining because it's not fast enough Rolling Eyes

So have fun with the bloody wizards, and don't bloodboil everybody on the street.

Zer0, I thought it was blood we are feeding on Twisted Evil

Guys, I don't think that many people on PV have noticed that there is a new version of CE mod. Maybe you should make a separate thread about it.

Maybe that's not a bad idea. The CE thread over there is rather long by now, so a message "new version out" will probably go mostly unnoticed.

Or i simply wait until Drathian has found the time to merge it into his compilation, and let him do the advertising Razz

Happened to me a few times i try to use the colege thingy on my Laptop, i lose the Blood/HP, the quest log is updated, but i gain no stats whatsoever.

Probably i'm missing some requirement to learn the ability i tried to learn, but losing the HP / Blood shouldnt happen if i fail to learn the new ability, or some "fail message" should apear to make it more intuitive for some people.


Other than that, all going well in this paythrough with 1.3

Well you can fail your course if the level is not appropriate, but still have passed time and payed your tuition...
If you spend 3 hours trying to learn advanced japanese and payed to pass the exam, and fail, do you get the money and time back ? Smile

I probably didnt express myself fully well.


The Quest log is updated also the same as when i suceed in learning something, meaning that the only way i know if i suceeded or not is to check if my stats changed and checking for a "stats increased" message.


Its not that its gamebreaking or anything, but a simple "fail message" would go a long way into making this colege feature more acessible for some people who might not be as hardcore into the game.


Cheers

The only thing I can imagine is that you didn't have enough blood in your bloodpool. In that case I intended the money and the choices to be lost. For everything else (money, necessary attributes, ability not over 4), a precheck is made and you can't do the course.
It was intended this way, because the college can check which course you order (ability level), if you meet the requirements (Attribute), and if your account is valid for the chosen course (money). But they can't check if you are able to concentrate long enough to really learn the materials they sent you (blood = time spent for learning).

Here is a table for the amount of blood you need. This is probably better than just the formula to compute it

lvl 1-2 3-4 5-6 7-8 9-10
0 11 10 9 8 7
1 9 8 7 6 5
2 11 10 9 8 7
3 13 12 11 10 9
4 15 14 13 12 11
The left column shows the current level of the ability you want to raise, the top row is the sum of your wits+scholarship, and the center fields (in red) show the blood you need.

I hope this helps with your studies study
