Thief 4 inspiration thread..?

Recommended Posts

So I'm doing another play-through of T4, but this time with the use of a trainer so I can noclip and ghost amongst other things,,

 

I have been taking lost of screen shots, and was wondering if there was any interest in me creating a multi threaded & resource inspiration thread?

Lol, played through it again the for the same reason last weak (but without the noclip mode). :)

 

 

I have a folder like that as well, but IMO those assets aren't that impressive anymore. Quite a few years have passed, and stuff like Dishonored 2 happened :)

 

From a technical point of view you are probably right. But I would assume that Thief 4 is most likely closer to what many FM authors are aiming for in regards to art design then Dishonored 2 (which is way more steam-punky then any thief game ever was). In the end both games are worth taking a closer look at.

I was thinking more about general model fidelity and texturework, than differences in style, but it's true: Carnaca is more "exotic" setting (Latin America, etc.) than Dunwall, which is only present in first and last part of the game.

Well I am current taking and collecting SS as I go, maybe this little side projectect will be the thing that gets me into modelling...

If you're collecting images of citysections, you'll actually be better with google maps and street views, as you can get inspired by real-world thing, and not somebody's interpretation of that. Still, games are good to look for modeling tricks, gameplay ideas, or e.g. interior layouts, as those are harder to come by.

I've been thinking about starting Thief 4 again too, a few days ago. Unfortunately, i still have too good memories of a dull, dumb game, so, i guess i rather pass on it... rather give Dishonored another go.

 

I also found the artwork in the first 3 games to be very different. Theif 4's artwork was pretty good in its own right, but, not to compare with the other Thief's IMO.
