I've been involved in the TDM community now since before we had a game, since way back when we were arguing over lock picking methods lol
Finally, I'm finished with Briarwood Manor - my first Fan Mission for The Dark Mod. I've been hatching this for a year so I'm wrapped it's
Crowind made the Briefing for the mission: This is the HD version.
Briarwood Manor is a old manor house built and added on to over the years which gives it it's design.
The family part is the original home, and two other parts were added on later. Inspiration came from
an image in the TDM Editors Inspiration thread.
Available through in-game downloader.
or here: Update: Version 1.2
A few things to note:
1+ Hour of gameplay
Easy Difficulty is intended for new players. Hard/Expert for most of the TDM Community. This is a challenging map for new players.
Features a custom intro (above) and a few custom sounds, and some voice acting.
This mission is not for low end PC's. The house is fine, but the garden will make lower end PC's grind. The map
has been made sensitive to LOD settings. So if it's grinding you're PC drop you're LOD settings for it, then you can return them to
normal once you've finished. On my Medium PC gtx 760 with Normal LOD I get 30 to 60 fps in the garden.

If you are stuck or need help, fastest way to reach me is message me on my youtube channel (link bottom of this post). Use the resources you were given and you should have no problems. Otherwise post spoiler free in this thread.
Credits: Crowind put my briefing text into a more thiefy style for Goldwell to voice. He also helped with refining the trailer for the mission. Bikerdude (did the coal door for me and let me use his moonbeam method) and sorted the performance side of things out and thereby taught me how to do performance., grayman for providing a script to handle the drop key and solving some conversation problems. EHR+ for showing me how to do the double secret door and Fidcal for his Fidcal's A-Z tutorial for Dark Radiant. Without this starting point I would not have started.
