Infiltrate a keep and steal information.

Took me a while to finnish this one, motivation comes and goes!

I would like to thank nbohr1more and Pranqster for helping me test the mission and help sort out any problems.
Bikerdude for fixing a lighting error.
nbohr1more also made the awesome font for the preview att the missions section!

And last but no least The Dark Mod team for making all of this possible!
All your hard work is much appreciated! :wub:



Errors and other dissapointing stuff
No map
Sitting ai will sometimes sit midair if alerted
Sleeping ai might also sleep midair if alerted.
Crouching on the balcony with your light on may/will cause fps to drop.
No title on loading screen (Prefer it that way)

Tell me if you spot anymore and i will update.



Enjoy

Downloading now but it's bedtime so no feedback tonight!

No formulae the text-books know,
Will turn the bullet from your coat,
Or ward the tulwar's

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—
The odds are on the cheaper man.

Congrats! By the way, the low fps while crouching went away for me after I ran dmap while testing it. So maybe that issue is fixed now after your updates.

I hope somebody comes with a mirror soon... To wait 520 seconds to start the download is unacceptable! & to buy a premium package to company I've never even heard of is illogical, but it being a new TDM mission I patiently waited and downloaded anyway :)

ARGH!!! I hate Thief missions with a "no kill" objective, especially when the guards are wearing full armor with helmets. I'm guessing this a "ghosting" mission ??

Haha, how nice, I will download and try it out. Sounds like a good mission, but was it supposed to be a black picture with some red streams on it? :P

Well done on the final version :-)

Wow how nice! I really liked to see this big castle from outside and then wandering through it on the inside. It felt like a castle with huge hallways and rooms. At some points it semmed a bit empty though, but it was never crook.

Well! I recomment this one!

EDIT: Haha, guess the sitting AI had some issues here :D
Another part in which I had fun was when the AI stumbled over bottles lying on the ground and alerted itself for many times :rolleyes:

I was going to mention this earlier but it took seeing the title screen next to other images to really motivate me... The title image needs something at the top. Whether it be text or some other image element.

I made a version with stylized text.

Why so dark nbohr?

Hm I am curious if you will really do a version 2 of it. I think it would be lavishness if you don't.
It's hard to describe but this mission has something very familiar with the old thief games.. I don't know what it is, but it is one of the best missions in this regard..

Nevertheless it may be optimized in the way of do some variations of patrouling paths (many of them are easy to foresee) and making better use of the AI relightning (the one with the switch is great).

Btw why are there no door handles?

If you try to brighten the original image, you will find that the color data is virtually non-existent in the lower ranges anyway. That is probably a result of the fact that the image was "Posterized" before the gamma was increased. I took that to mean that the image is "as intended" and it does give off a dark foreboding feel. I just made the suggestion that the image is a bit lob-sided visually and recommended that text (or something) be placed in that big black area up top. Incidentally, the image kinda reminds me of some posters I've seen for "Led Zeppelin IV" ...

V2 would include small edits.
Such as adding handles to doors, improve ai, improve atmoshpere and add some rooms to the empty halls near the second balcony.

I was to lazy, lame reason i know.

btw, what does lavishness mean?

Thats a very nice font, do you have a larger one i could use?
also is it possible to make the font more, dark blue slight purpleish?
