Author Note:
 
Thank you for downloading and playing the sequel to Accountant 1: A Noble Home this FM picks up right from where we left off in accountant 1.
This is the second part in my five part series following Corbin on his journey to discover who and what the accountant is.
 
This mission is a little different to what you may expect from a Thief mission but still has plenty of classic Thief moments as well. This is the largest mission I have ever built with an average play through lasting between 2 - 3 hours.
 
A few aspects in game are different to what you may expect as well and those are:
 
- Candles are pinchable (frob to put out instead of pickup)
- Food has been hot fixed so now it heals you for 10 health points when eaten
- Doors that are missing handles means you cannot enter that room/building
- All secrets can be found before you enter the sewers
 
As a little piece of fun trivia there is a small cameo in my mission from a very special guest. He is a longtime voice actor in the industry and you may know him from roles such as Deckard Cain in Diablo, Captain Price in Call of Duty, Elder Lyons in Fallout 3, or just about any Nordic character in Skyrim.
 
In addition to all of the fantastic people who have helped me along the way I have personally spent a lot of time, effort and energy devoted to bringing this out to you all so I hope you can enjoy the fruits of my labor and have fun!

Has cameos for everyone in the community but me. It's really not worth the download.

[pedant mode]All secrets are hidden can be found before you enter the sewers [/pedant mode] :D :D

Seriously this is a wonderful mission although it is actually impossible to get all the loot while ghosting

When I have an evening to spare I will try to ghost the mission getting all the secrets but not all the loot - it will take that long given its size

I stopped at the point where my quick save crashed. =/
Really hope 2.04 fixes these for good. But fortunately I made a hard save about 30 min back, so it could have been worse.

This is great work in any event. Visually good and I like how you fit a whole story into this hotel floor by floor. I'll say more when I've finished.

I'm glad you're enjoying it so far! I've had that quicksave bug happen to me a few times throughout different missions as well. Hopefully it doesn't give you any more problems!

I am not watching this playthrough now as I've not finished the mission, but I expect it is funny for Fen to hear himself speak. :D

It's funny. I hear myself speak every single day, yet hearing myself Voice ActTM is slightly uncomfortable and weird, like how it is the first time you hear yourself recorded. Heheh. I've got other VA bits in missions coming out sooner or later as well.

We are our own worst critic right? I thought you did a good job, I left you a comment on some important parts that you missed in the video as well.

 

Looking forward to your future parts (you've only scratched the surface with this mission so far)

Fortunately I've heard some VAs I really admire say the same sort of things at times. "All I can hear are mistakes". So it's as you say, even for pros.

That's what I like to hear! I was afraid I'd got through half of it already :ph34r:

Welcome to club, and you'll get used to it :-)

 

We will have to get you to do a voice set for the mod, Im sure there was a voice you did that was quite unique, I think it was a builder type voice.

I have weird performance issues. I have 8-15 fps all the time. I once loaded and had 60 fps, then quicksaved and it went down back to 12 or so.

That is quite odd, normally I would fault the mission but no one (Beta tester or release players) have complained of performance issues.

 

With that being said I personally have had some issues but that was attributed to a bug in Windows 10 where "system and compressed memory" has a memory leak and starts causing major lag everywhere.

 

In what areas (feel free to spoiler tag) are you receiving these slow downs as well? and does running the dark mod in a window help the performance at all? (sometimes driver programs like the nvidia control panel offer fullscreen options vs windowed options.. it might be worth looking into those settings to optimize. Also are you using Windows 10? perhaps you are having that memory leak issue I had as well.

 

I assume you have some decent hardware considering you work with modeling software a lot so I doubt it's anything on that end.
