  1. Oops, I've updated the link in the OP. Thanks for catching this. Download here
  2. Haha, it is a bit ridiculous. I hadn't played the mission in a long while and was thinking the same thing. Thanks for playing! Goldwell was kind enough to upload this on to the in-game downloader and do some last minute bug hunting.
  3. Hello Everyone! I finally got around to making some updates to this mission. Download Here or in the in-game downloader. These updates are mostly visual/ audio and aside from better AI pathing, there are no major gameplay changes. Old saves will not work. ============================================================= Changelist v1.2 ============================================================= - Added high resolution briefing video - Added new thief vocals - Added updated arrow models and effects - Fixed missing lamp model in courtyard - Minor audio tweaks - Brightened up the ambient lighting and reduced saturation. - Fixed monster clipping issues. Note: I increased the global brightness level so you might want to mess with your gamma / brightness settings before playing. Special thanks to Andrew Bartmes for the awesome new thief vocals.
  4. That is so rad! I always wanted to see Garrett's home done up in TDM, or any bits of the thief missions for that matter. I'm definitely thinking you should sneak it into your missions somewhere .
  5. That would be great! If I remember correctly in T2 the spot light color changes? So the camera could have something like: searching_color, detected_color, and alarm_color spawnargs available to authors. This could effect the spot light and also the light textures on the model. Bonus if it can also change color on any effects like a lens flare glow attached to it.
  6. Cool. It would be great if they have the function to follow the player to create that tense moment of escaping its view. Otherwise it will alert and the player can just take half a step out of its view and avoid having to get away. Thanks for the info. I'll add a note in the bugtracker.
  7. Hello everyone, I've been thinking about messing around with the new security cameras and had a few questions that people might have answers too. I know these are a WIP feature. - Currently, the camera stops in place once it locates the player. Is it possible to append the script to have it follow the player's movement (similar to the t2 cameras)? I'd want to be able to set its max "follow" speed as well. - Is there a way to adjust its visual acuity similar to the AI? Obviously I'd want to do this stuff without messing the the source so it would have to be appended to the object script. It would be wonderful to hack those things in if possible. Thanks!
  8. This has happened to me a couple times as well. It can be sort of annoying. Ill fill out a bug report if there isnt one already.
  9. Congrats Goldwell! As always, this is a killer release with so much thought and care put into every inch of it. I encourage everyone to play it! Can't wait for the next one.
  10. Yeah so those urns were kind of hacky. Obs script worked well, but as mentioned it couldnt provide an impulse to send the flinders flying once the barrel exploded. I reverted back the the duct taped version with a bound light and func_shooter because sending the flinders flying through the air was super satisfying IMO. It would be awesome if you guys figure out a way to provide an impulse to the flinders in the object script. Generally this could be applied to breakable crates, doors, ect. Maybe something could be pulled from the func_fracture class?
  11. Hey you might want to check out prefabs/ mechanical/ 3 floor elevator to see how it's set up. Make sure your AAS solid and AAS obstacle brushes are placed similar to how they are in the prefab. Ive broken my elevators a couple times by moving those even a few units off. Also make sure the AI can get to the buttons and that the button's ride or fetch spawnarg is set up correctly. Ride is for selecting a floor while on the elevator and fetch is for calling the elevator to a floor. Hope this helps!
  12. Got around to giving this mission a go and had a blast! The holiday theme was great and it had quite a few fun bits of exploration and story for a mission this size. Thanks for this! This mission has a lot of charm to it.
  13. True, but the impact will alert nearby guards. I was thinking of something that can do that and knock out guards quietly I guess.
  14. Ive played around with adding new arrow types and weapons/ tools to my FMs. Some of it works and some of it doesn't. I've found it hard to create gameplay scenarios where a new weapon type or tool is really necessary, but I'm sure there all kinds of creative ways to find new uses for stuff. Im not sure if a long range knock out arrow would be much different than the gas arrow as mentioned. However, it would be interesting if that same arrow could also be used to silently hit switches from a distance or something. Or like how the holy water changes the properties of your water arrows, maybe there is an interesting way to change your broadhead's to blunt tip arrows or something. Anyhow, its an interesting idea if you can find good reasons for it.
