Great mission, finished in about 7 hours plus reloads. Stealth 2. Lots of interest throughout and well-paced. Clues were okay though it did seem a bit overloaded near the start with papers everywhere! Not sure how to make it more subtle, maybe the odd note tucked under a pillow or in a drawer and not a confession right on top of a cabinet for anyone to see? But then players would complain they never found a crucial note, I guess. Visually great. Navigation excellent and even with a map I kept getting lost just like in real life. I was just beginning to grasp the layout by the end of the mission. More stairs per square foot than I've ever seen in any mission. AI coped well moving about and I only saw one temporary traffic jam which eventually cleared itself. Busy with lots of enemy to keep it alive and keep the player on their toes. Enjoyed it a lot. Got stuck on one objective but now done (see spoiler.)

 

Thanks, grayman, I'll download the sequel. :rolleyes:

@Fidcal:

 

Whew! Glad you got past the issue you were having.

Once you're through Home Again and ready to play Cleighmoor, let me know. I'll give you a temp solution for a game-killing bug there that perhaps 1 in a dozen people encounter. Just involves editing the *.map file w/o having to rebuild. I have an update ready for distribution, but I don't plan to do that until I release WS4 and WS5, which are nearly complete, but won't come out until after TDM 2.05.

I added a section to the Cleighmoor OP titled Problem with Suicidal AI.

 

Follow the directions, and you shouldn't encounter an aborted game.

Wasn't able to get the WS3 map, the download link led to an advert for Roblox or something and demanded I sign up! I tried again but couldn't see any other link.

Edited by Anderson, 21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM.

 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

I'll go on later today after some works and report on the rest of the mission. It's justifiably on solid grounds for the praise as an outstanding FM already.

A little late but finally done.

 

Spoiler

Everything is as was mentioned by others - top notch!

The narrative is beautiful, readables abundandant and rich to give a sense of a real mansion with a life of its own with everyone trying to make ends meet their own hidden way.

The only critical outlook would be directed towards the pathing of the elite guards who were really a pain to my exploration, but their silence really does give away how professional they are. Kinda like the Keeper hunters from Thief 3. Loved that approach.

To note though that the lady guarded sometimes went to bed with the body glitching out and floating above the bed. 

 

With a few tweaks for bug squashing this definately didn't lose anything in the way of being called one of the best FM's for TDM. Capital!

Glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully WS2 and WS3 will also be satisfying.

 

WS4 and WS5 nearly complete, and I've even begun tentative first steps in WS6.

Best wishes in those steps and take care of yourself! All will come in due time. That is more than reasonable to understand for us.

While this is a fun mission and I'm greatly enjoying it, I have a bug report.

Because in mystery novels, the first suspect is almost certainly never the murderer. No matter how much unmovable evidence there is, it will all be smashed in pieces by the wrath of the remaining number of pages of the story.

Just finished. This is a brilliant mission! A rich layout, full of spacial complexity. Good set of stories and characters. It looked great, too. Looking forward to the sequels.

 

Thank you!

Can't frob this guard's key, before or after knocking her out or trying with notarget. Am I doomed? There a give command to give the key to me?
