There are very few things that would drive a man of the streets like myself to the high seas. Before I even thought there were none at all. Yet when one of the nobles whom I had paid a visit to decided to make it his personal objective to end me, promising a mound of gold to the first cutthroat who brings him my head, it became clear no one could be trusted anymore. It was time for change.

*Grayman - for allowing me to repurpose a mission of his for my briefing

Very good concept, but moving among the crates&stuff is a nightmare :D

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

There's a bug on the downloader: it reports the mission name as onesteptofar, but the mission seems to know itself as onesteptoofar. I found this because I downloaded the mission from the link, but the in-game downloader offered me a download which turns out to have identical content (md5 61cc501191cd412f0150daa0ff271144) but a different file name.

Blast, something's wrong. The game has crashed twice on me in this mission, unfortunately the log doesn't look terribly helpful:
Spoiler

That's only the tail of the log, if it happens again and the entire log would help I can provide it next time.

Edit: Oops, wrong mission, this is Lockner Manor breaking here. Sorry.

The log says you're loading the Lockner Manor map, that might be part of the problem.
But you should walk having internal dignity. Be a wonderful person who can dance pleasantly to the rhythm of the universe.

quicksave or noclip are your friend

Forgive me for asking, but where do you need that? Virtually everything in the hold was swapped out with nodrawsolid and then tweaked until I could run everywhere without finding unpassable minislopes or places to get stuck. All I can see still is headwobbling when you move between objects of different heights.

Thanks for the help! Stupid me, I didn't even try to lockpick that.

So, the mission is now finished. Or is it?
Spoiler

All the climbing builds up tension and then suddenly - nothing. Don't get me wrong: Wonderful mission, interesting story, I will definitely replay the mission, but God help you if you don't come up with a sequel any time soon! Just so I know where that damn tunnel leads to.

And I had to noclip once while climbing the mountain and twice in the ship (behind my own crate).

Hi Guys:
How do I find the destination of the ship? Except that I was able to complete all the other "ship"-board objectives.
BTW, I cannot "pick" the haunted tome. Is there any special key I need to press?
Thanks,
-Garette
