Cleighmoor takes Steele inside Cleighmoor Gaol, where Warden Fielder likes nothing better than a glass of wine and some cheese, while watching a miscreant hang from his gallows.
Steele is tracking down the evidence of his parents’ murder.
The mission starts in the sewers, and progresses to Cleighmoor’s compound.
The William Steele Missions
Cleighmoor is the third of several Steele missions. Altogether they'll tell a story of corruption, greed, and revenge. At some point, I'll start packaging them as a campaign, in addition to the single missions.
If you haven’t played WS1: In the North, or WS2: Home Again, I suggest you complete those before playing WS3: Cleighmoor.
Cleighmoor is available in the in-game downloader.
Problem with Suicidal AI
Occasionally, someone reports that a distant AI commits suicide. Since one of the mission objectives is to kill only in self-defense, this fails the mission when it occurs.
To avoid that, I've created a replacement *.map file that you can obtain here. After you've downloaded and installed the mission, create a new folder named "maps" so that you have:
Unzip the replacement *.map file and place the new *.map file into the maps folder. So now you have:
This should solve the suicide problem. A new version of the mission will be released after TDM 2.05.
Nearly 4 years. (This was my first attempt at a mission, and it sat on the back burners until being folded into Steele’s story.)
Cleighmoor is ready for translation.
Thanks to the TDM team for creating a terrific platform for storytelling and stealth gaming.
Thanks to my beta testers: AluminumHaste, Bikerdude, Goldwell, Xarg, Lux, Moonbo, Deadlove, and plotzzz.
Thanks to Goldwell for his voice work on the conversations.
And thanks to YOU, for playing!
This is a large mission. To ease the burden on older systems, consider shutting doors behind you as you go.
If you experience low frame rates, please consult the Performance Tweaks page on the Wiki.
For very low end PCs I recommend the following settings:
- V-sync is off
- AA is off
- Aniso is 4x or lower
- Advanced settings are simple/default
- Post processing is disabled
Anyone having performance issues with TDM missions can put the following cvars into their Darkmod.cfg file. This will improve the framerate and stutter/chop when in-game, but may increase loading times a little.
image_usePrecompressedTextures "1" image_useNormalCompression "2" image_useAllFormats "1" image_useCompression "1" image_preload "1"
This mission requires TDM 2.01 or later.
The William Steele story is heavy with readables. Please try to read every readable you find.
Most importantly, Enjoy!
