So even though the cave isn't finished I still wanted to play this mission again! It's a great one! At first I found the city portion confusing, and I got lost a lot. I eventually just enjoyed exploring it. There were so many buildings that I could actually go inside and so many AIs that it really felt alive, the way a city ought to :D It was really cool to be able to get around the city through the sewers.
Spoiler
The level design of the cathedral was my favorite part. Good architecture for sneaking about combined with good patrol routes made for a fun challenge. The readables were nice and some of them made me feel bad for thieving :laugh:

Thanks for this great fan mission Bikerdude!

I'll have to play it again when the cave is done.

Also, I think it's awesome that you help out with so many fan missions :D

Alberic is my sparring partner.

St Albans Cathedral v2.0

iVuFChTw2xyU0.jpg

"..After most of my gear got snatched during a Watch raid... I've been forced to hit the streets and lower mysef by picking pockets to survive. But my luck was about to change, last night I was approached by a hooded individual with a proposition... The Builders of St. Alban's Cathedral in the Old Quarter had recently unearthed a discovery that he wanted me to recover..."

Build Time:
Lost count at this stage.

Thanks:-
Too my beta testers.

Info:
  • I have changed some of the Ai in the town, and added to the level of difficulty
  • I have added more Ai in the cathedral
  • On all difficulty levels the player starts with only the basic compliment of tools.
  • For the love of all that is holy, read the briefing otherwise you will have problems completing the mission you taffer!
Known issues:-
  • This mission will have less than optimal fps at a few points on the map, but the performance has been tweaked compared to the previous version..
  • On low end PCs I recommend, V-sync is off, AA is off, Aniso is 4x or lower and that any and all background apps are closed.
Download links:-

Available via the in-game downloader.

Just finished the mission, very very well done Bikerdude! My only wish is that the map was a little bit more detailed and some points were a bit more obvious but all over all I thoroughly enjoyed that mission. Crawling through that claustrophobic city was just great! Thank you :)

Awesome mission, thanks for updating it. Just a minor complaint: it's often difficult to start climbing some ladders down, mainly in narrow holes - I keep falling and taking damage. And a question:

Great stuff. I never played the first versions but this was very nice. A combination of city, sewers and a hammer cathedral all in one. Lot of hidden stuff to find. Big mission.

I only found just over 3/5 of the loot and continued exploring and found the rest of it. One of your best missions for sure.

Yeh, quite a few players like this one and Alberics curse. Which reminds me I need to rap up the new version of AC and get that out the door as well.

Well, I'm obviously missing something because I've completed all the objectives but for framing the inventor...? Can I get a hint, please?

You have to place something fake in the inventors qaurters on the upper floor of the cathedral.

I was wondering what the fake skull in my inventory was for... I'll go and try that.

Really great mission, well done! Loved the mapping, very detailed... I especially enjoyed the cathedral, with the addition of the tavern and the cove (yay for friendly NPC's). Story was good enough, puzzles also challenging. Hope you plan to make more like this!

I forgot to mention that I completed the mission. This particular part of the mission just seemed like it might not be intentional is all.

Ah, okay. It was always that way, so it must have been intentional.

Stuck: I broke into the watch tower (under the bell tower) and got a bunch of my gear, sword arrows, but no black jack, no scope/lantern and the objective

won't complete. I've searched the watch tower from top to bottom including sewer entrances, but still that objective won't complete. 

 

Hint please!
