Most upgraded FM ever :D

 

Indeed !

 

I've been playing this in two gos so far, during the last few days, and it's a splendid mission, even if its complexity makes it an easy target for being rife with the occassional bugs. I admire PranQster's resolve to keep bettering it. B)

 

My only current gripe with the mission is that I am just a few hundred loot (about 400) short of completing the 4000 loot objective on Medium difficulty. I think I've looked absolutely everywhere and there isn't much more to find at this point. Is there some hidden cache somewhere in the basement area of the mission ? Maybe I've overlooked that.

Erm, nevermind, I've just figured out where to get the rest of the loot for the 4000 loot objective. :blush: One of the tips mentioned earlier actually helped with that. Now to finish and take a look at my statistics... B)

Oh, my pleasure. :)

 

It's been a good and not too frustrating mission, there was plenty of suspense involved with guarding patrols.

 

Unfortunately, on one of my loads, I've still seen some minor errors in guard pathfinding when it comes to

, but later on, it didn't really reappear. I suppose the occassional glitch is still par for the course even in the final version of this mission, but truth be told, I didn't find it game-breaking, so it wasn't an unsolvable annoyance.

Yes, thank you for your comments :)

 

There will always be glitches which will never get properly sorted. My favorite is when two guards try to use the same stall at the archery range at the same time, and one ends up shooting another. Then they fight to the death and any guards nearby go on alert when they see the body. Sometimes a player will reach the roof and find the guards already on alert when the player was not actually yet detected.

Haven't witnesssed that, and I hope I'll avoid running into it in future playthroughs.

Of all the FM's out there I think this is the one I had more fun playing with. The unique elements in the mission combined with great atmosphere, tons of things to do, kept me going from beginning to end. This is a hidden gem to me cause I didn't even knew it existed. Most importantly is among the few missions I feel I want to reply more than twice. For me this is among the top 5 best missions of DM! :)

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."...

No. This one is sealed. A done deal. Never again! LOL

I did however update DR and fire it up. It's about time for me to continue on with my pagan village mission, which I started in 2011 as a city/sewer/forest map. I have since removed the city/sewer areas and am working on building up the outdoor areas to make up for the lost content.

I really enjoyed this mission. Like Taquito said, I didn't even know this fm was around. Very glad I found it. Hoping to see more from you PranQster. Thanks

Enjoying the mission here, hard to get 5k loot, however.

I can't tell where you are but in order to break something the broadhead does a great job and you can get those on the archery range

I tried arrows, but they're simply stuck in the tapestry. I remember how I used to cut these in thief2 but there seems to be no sword in this mission.

Also is it just me or my screenshot in the previous post doesn't show up anymore?

 

UPD: Thank you and nevermind

Sorry for the late response. I have been very busy IRL this year and have not logged in here very recently. Glad to see that you found what you were looking for.
