Fan Mission: Sneak & Destroy, by SeriousToni, Beginner's Contest 2012

Well, I was wrong!
There are certainly lots of right angles and a lack of ... organic structures and grime, sometimes it did look a little empty and not-lived in - but this was swiftly forgotten when I was actually playing.
You certainly know how to fit the elements of an enjoyable mission together!
For a beginner mission it seems very remarkable to me that your map, while overall to me "only" being good, lacks not much, at least I didn't notice anything major.
Also, the extra effort going in a nice briefing/debriefing made the mission feel much more meaningful (it's always so much nicer to be gently carried into/out of the thief feeling than to be just "thrown" in a mission like in cold water).
In my opinion, your basic skill level is already quite good - I hope for much in your future, more refined, missions!
Thank you for an hour of good thieving fun.

I can't remember the last time I played as solid mission as this. It was probably The Score to Settle.
Anyways: all in all, this mission was one of the most fun missions I've played for a looong time. And it is even impressive since it is your first mission! I salivate to even to contemplate what kind of masterpiece your next mission will be.
Thanks! I really think that if you choose to carry on with mapping, TDM will have a bright future in terms of high-quality maps.

I only had a couple of problems
Definately nothing major.
I look forward to more from you. Congrats.

No it wasn't a big problem at all.
Thanks again for a great mission.
Edit - Also nice to meet you.

I just want to elaborate what I meant with the lost focus.
I hope my feedback did not hurt your feelings, I don't do it out of spite, but I see your great potential and want to give you some pointers to consider. To reveal things for you to think about so that you can develop your own take on the described facet of mission design. I emphasize that my way is not the 'correct' way, but you need to develop a personal way that appeals to you, but also makes the mission more enjoyable for as many as possible. Many of these things are a matter of taste and when it comes to art, this mission is your art: you do not need to apologize your decisions.
It indeed was a great mission and I enjoyed it a lot.

you weren't supposed to be there and I can't understand how the hell you've made it there
Wasn't aware of that - I can't have tried to KO many sitting AI's up till now.
And with the sitting guy: There's often some problems with sitting or sleeping AI's in the game which I as mapper can not solve as far as I know. I'm sorry, I hope it wasn't too bad!
Just keep looking at the poll results
we need also some candy

My philosophy is, if a player can get up there legitimately, he or she deserves the accomplishment.

One question though is there a secret in the bathroom where there appears to be scrape marks on the floor?

Noticed this in jysk's FM too. Has it always been like that and I've only just noticed?
Why does "Goods" say "Gooods"?

I had a lot of fun playing it!
