Vampire: Bloodlines Unofficial Patch 7.2 Out

Who remembers the above charmer? I polished him off with a sledgehammer. Felt good.

The umpteenth unofficial Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines patch has been released, bringing us up to version 7.2. This time the few changes are all very minor, so I'm really posting this as a reminder. If you haven't played Bloodlines with these unofficial patches that not only fix the game, but dig out and restore a stash of Troika's unfinished quests from the game's files, you're missing out on one of the single biggest gems PC gaming has to its name. 7.2 patch notes below.

If you haven't played Bloodlines at all, there's simply no time to waste. You could get run over by a Fiat Panda tomorrow. A Fiat Panda could come crashing through the wall and bounce you across the room today. For the love of all that is unholy, find yourself a copy, and make sure it's not Vampire - The Masquerade: Redemption, which was... not this.

Those patch notes:

+Made SM haven stay always active and placed Ash's cell key on crate.
+Adjusted sell values, melee stats and fixed netcafe headrunner bug.
Fixed possible video courier retrigger bug and some dialogue issues.
Prevented Heather's comeback when returning from lower Hallowbrook.

The "+" symbol means that these changes will only occur if you choose the "plus" version of the patch at install, which goes further than bug fixes and actually alters or adds to the game's content.

You'll find Jim's stirring piece on the tradgedy of Bloodlines' development here, and Kieron's NGJ article on his response to your blood slave here. Both are must-reads.
