Takes Time Mod
always thought it was strange that when Geralt has
sex with a woman, most of the time, they don't go anywhere, no time
passes, and she has nothing to say about it afterwards.
Many times, the woman says "Come with me," or Geralt says, "Let's find
a nook somewhere" or they say something else to indicate that they're
going to go somewhere private for their tryst ... but they almost never
Well, I've fixed that. :-)
I've revamped all 25 sexual events in the game. For most of Geralt's
trysts, I've sent him and his lover somewhere else. For example, he and
the peasant woman in the Outskirts sneak into one of the abandoned
houses for their encounter, Geralt and the Gossip go into one of the
houses in the Temple Quarter, and the prostitute you meet on the
streets of the Temple Quarter takes Geralt into the Eager Thighs
Brothel for their encounter.
Some of the trysts were already happening in a private place, so the
Half-Elf and Geralt meet in her house, where they were already meeting,
Princess Adda takes Geralt to her room in the New Narakort, where they
were already meeting, and so on.
There are a few sexual events where what's happening is a big part of
the plot, and for those events, I've only added some time, so that
anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours will have passed. The events that
are part of the plot need to stay pretty much the way they are so as
not to mess up the game, and most of those encounters were already done
reasonably well, except for the fact that no time passed. So I added
the time. :-)
Sex should have an effect on Geralt, and I figure the effect it will
have is to make him feel a bit better; the way I've implemented this is
to reduce Geralt's toxicity whenever he has sex. :-)
In some cases, CDPR already had a post-sex line of conversation for the
woman; it's just that the player didn't get that line right after sex.
In those cases, I've made the woman say that line right after sex and
have added a reply (or in some cases, a choice of replies) for Geralt.
In cases where CDPR gave the woman no post-sex conversation at all,
I've made some up, just one or two lines for the woman and one line for
Geralt. Most of Geralt's lines are voiced. All of the CDPR lines for
the woman are voiced; the ones I've made up are not voiced. So,
something like three-fourths of the post-sex conversational lines are
I've tested every single fix. (Yes, I've watched 25 sex scenes half a
dozen times each. You see the sacrifices I make for you guys? :P)
Nothing in there will hurt your game. BUT, if The
Witcher is going to crash,
it's usually when a new area loads.
Since new areas are loading more often using this mod, sometimes it
will be during one of those new areas that The Witcher
does its thing. So save your
game right before having sex with
anyone. (In real life, use a condom; in virtual life, save your game.
Because the area files are part of your saved game, I can't alter
anything about the areas with a mod. This means that I can only have
Geralt and his lovers go to places that already have special marks --
called "waypoints" -- in the area files already. That's why Geralt and
his ladies aren't standing next to the bed but are standing elsewhere
in the house when they go inside to have their tryst.
Two of Geralt's ladies -- Morenn and The Lady of the Lake -- aren't
indoor kinds of people. I have them move slightly aside from where they
were standing, so you no longer have sex with the Lady of the Lake in
the MIDDLE of the lake, but sending them inside wouldn't make character
sense, so I didn't do so.
new conversational lines are only available in
English, but the characters all move to the right places, and time
passes, regardless of what language you play in. When I tested the fix
by setting the language to French, the new English lines were printed
on the screen, so the fix should still work for you, just some of the
lines will be in English.
-- Fixed a problem where
there could be TWO Celinas in her
house if the player had sex with her at certain times of day.
(This wouldn't actually have hurt your game any, but it
exactly increase the realism of the game, which is what this mod is
supposed to do. :-)
There should only be one Celina now. (Certainly one of her is
more than enough!) This version was released on December 27,

INSTALLATION HELP FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE
FINDING THEIR DATA FOLDER
If you have trouble finding
your Data folder (Yes, I swear, you DO have one!), then go to the
shortcut that you use to start the game, right-click on it, and scroll
down to Properties, then click on that. The Properties box that pops up
will have a path to your launcher.exe
file in a box labelled Target.
Make note of that path!
The path to launcher.exe
will lead you to your The
Witcher Enhanced Edition folder, which will have four subfolders: Data,
Launcher, Register, and System. The path to witcher.exe
will lead you to your The
Witcher Enhanced Edition\System folder. Just go up one level, and
you'll be in your The Witcher Enhanced Edition folder, where you'll see
those four subfolders: Data, Launcher, Register, and System.
