"I am not enjoying my journeys, its so cold at the moment I imagine the chill could freeze a candle flame into a fire-gem and ole scratch's tears solid to his stoney face. Suffice to say, I'll be happy to get out of these whipping winds.

A friend has asked me to keep an eye on his place while he is out of town. That part of Bridgeport is quiet enough, but he has been having a few problems he would like sorted out. I will know more when I get there."

Build Time:
God knows, too many hours.

Thanks:-
- As always espect to the Dark Mod team and for all the hard work they put and continue to put into it.
- Flanders for his excellent models and textures.
- Special thanks to the people that answered my technical questions on the forum.
- Beta testers: Oldjim, Lowenz, AluminumHaste, Greyman, nbhormore, McPhisto, Lost_soul, Pranqster and the original testers!

Info:
An update of the original Christmas Contest mission for TDM 1.08.

Just replayed that one on the highest difficulty setting. Took me 45 minutes and a stealth score of 15. Think that's ok :smile:

I really like the idea behind this mission. It's not the typical grab this item and get some loot on your way. It's a bit hard to tell what has changed as it's been a while since I've played this one, but I think at least

is new. I liked it.

The optics are on a very high niveau, as we are used to whenever Bikerdude releases something. ;)

Maybe I add some things that I personally do not like so much:

Spoiler

Obviously these are just some minor things and do really depend on the personal opinion. ^_^

Overall a great update to a fantastic mission. Thank you.

Looking foward to replaying this, though for me this mission always had performance problems (my laptop is weak for TDM). Should be great.

PS: Cant see the posted image.

What's specifically changed Biker, anything to do with gameplay or just visual polish?

Also like to know, a few missions were updated but the info in TDM doesn't say what. Some of them don't seem of have a version number in the list...

Jim, these guys haven't played even version 2 I don't think, but if they have there are plenty of new things they wont be aware of.

I agree but as far as I remember the basic objectives haven't changed
However I can really recommend replaying the mission if only for all the new visuals and objects which, in my humble opinion, have really improved the mission

But not all. Sorry, Biker.

Any that are left are TDM bugs, nothing I can or want to fix.

Jim is one of the best beta testers I have worked with, so take note future mappers.

hehe you are :-p

IMHO, TBR has its fair share of bugs, but as it was built in 2 weeks they can be overlooked :-)

Here is a list of ALL (16) things I updated.


Biker, just a suggestion, but I would put this list in the first post. I think many casual players may just pass this new version by thinking the changes are superficial/cosmetic, when in fact you've added some significant new features and areas to visit.

lie down and go to sleep while the guard is yelling "You can't hide

This is a bug with TDM rather than the map.

I can't seem to get it to run. Clicking "Start Mission" crashes the game (I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling and even redownloading it to no avail).
