Search the wall behind the dresser in the room where the footprints end.

I must say this mission is one of the best examples on "How to build a huge multiple ways to go map but not confuse the player" I have ever played on TDM. It was a mix between so many opportunities and finding the right path to succeed. I don't know how you've done that but I was never really lost nor frustrated in this big city with so many hidden rooms to explore. Great job on this map!

 

I wonder if

 

he changes his costume on every replay or if he picks the same costume everytime ?

 

 

What I loved was:

 

 

  • the huge sunken ship intoxicating the water
  • the many short story lines when you read the books, which connect later on, the more you read
  • the different characters roaming the streets and houses (which you have to remember if you want to fulfil your mission
  • the hidden roof entrences
  • the new audio lines / conversations
  • the ambience, light and sound effects
  • the grave for Sir Taffsalot with the bell tolling

 

 

 

What I missed was:

 

 

  • the lack of detail in the interiors (I think it's because of performance issues or the story that makes most homes abandoned)
  • the lack of new textures (the previous maps always had something special which I did not recolonize in this mission, but maybe I was blind)
  • a readable text in the intro (the background is mostly blending with the yellow text which made it partly hard to read)
  • a nice ending cinematic (you did so well on that in your previous missions)
  • the EFX effects which I only noticed in the sewers

 

 

 

Thank you for this 4.99 stars master piece grayman :)

I did have some trouble with the optional objective, though. No matter where on the desk I dropped the note, it never completed.

 

For me that worked perfectly! Did drop it onto the table with the candle and the letter. :)

Deacon will randomly select one of the five available disguises.

The briefing text has a little readability problem on bright background

Also, the M key still fails to bring up the map GUI

Text: Will adjust if I re-release the mission.

 

M key: This works in 2.07, but not in SVN. I'll file a debug report against it, if one doesn't already exist.

This is my favorite TDM mission so far. Part open world, part mystery, part detective. This mission made me aware of city type missions, also searching beyond TDM and finding skacky's excellent city missions. I went from a casual "trying out a TDM mission every now and then" player to really getting hooked and wanting to experiment with DR as well.

That whole chain started with this immersive and inspiring mission. Thank you, grayman!

Nice city to explore. But now i have running around for hours. Found the loot req. But where can i find the information about the killer. Sewers? I have not found the key to the door in the floor, in the warehouse. Hint about that one would be appreciated.

It’s been a few months since I beat it, but I believe

the theater is a good place start for info about the killer.

Glad you liked it. The server kicked me off the 'follow' list for this thread (#&^@%@^&&#), or I would've replied earlier.
