great now it works! :D excellent mission!
There is one thing that bothers me though:
Why the two guards patrolling in the city streets go for you on sight? whilst the tavern is full of people that obviously have gone there through the city streets, is that because you're dressed like a thief? or because you have a recognizable face? if so the people in the tavern should react to you too isn't it? and in case of the face, it would be cool to communicate this to the player with wanted posters everywhere.
 
is there a way to limit areas to the general public, like if you walk through the city streets you're fine, but once you walk trough the metal fence and you're seen by the guard patrol then they see you and attack you, like a social stealth thing.
 
so streets are fine, but once you cross several places, then you're a criminal, or also you're fine while you're not holding a weapon out, or are not seen climbing or on top of some box, or barrel. (like if seen in any unreachable area for the AI, and you're in neutral territory, then you're climbing and so a criminal)

Congrats on the mission. Look forward to playing but will have to wait. :) I seem to be having the same issue as above, so will come back to it.

  1. Why the two guards patrolling in the city streets go for you on sight?
  2. whilst the tavern is full of people that obviously have gone there through the city streets, is that because you're dressed like a thief?
  3. is there a way to limit areas to the general public, like if you walk through the city streets you're fine, but once you walk trough the metal fence and you're seen by the guard patrol then they see you and attack you, like a social stealth thing.
  4. or also you're fine while you're not holding a weapon out, or are not seen climbing or on top of some box, or barrel.
  1. Because the player is dressed a thief.
  2. Because the patrons in most taverns are civillians, they in this instance arent bothered by the players presense. However is the barman manages to notice the cash has been strolen fro the cash box then all the patrons will see the player as the enemy.
  3. this can been done, but I never got around to doing it for this map.
  4. The weapon suggestion would require some custom scripting which I dont have the time or motivation to do at this point.

@Thiefette, what issue?

@Thiefette, what issue?

 

Hi Bikerdude, I'm getting the same issue as SuaveSteve and UglyEd had.

 

SuaveSteve - "When I start the mission, I get the difficulty selection the moment it finishes loading, no prompt to click attack.

 

I can select a difficulty, or leave nothing selected, and click start mission. Then it is as if I quick loaded, loading bar goes quick and all I see is this:

UglyEd - "Intro -> Objectives -> Start Mission -> Generating World -> Starting Mission - please wait -> Objectives....
In all, the mission does not start."

Mission has been updated in the mission database.

 

Since I used the same pk4 name, you should get an asterix (*) "update available" indicator on the downloads page

if you have the elixir_1_3.pk4 file. If you have the original elixir.pk4 file, delete it and get the latest from the in-game

updater.

 

FYI. For those who are Admin's of the FM database: Do not upload mission revisions with different pk4 names,

rename the file to the original name prior to upload and use the "Version" field on the FM admin page to alert that

a new update is available.

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.

Now that TDM 2.06 has been out for awhile, and there are much better options for AA and Soft-Shadows:

 

https://www.moddb.co...tex-buffer-beta

 

there is no reason to hold back EFX audio on this mission anymore.

 

The mission has been updated to require 2.06. You should see an update indicator in the mission download listing.

So are you saying it has been update or I need to update it..?

Really nice mission. The secret button was a bit devilishly hidden (the fact that I kept searching the wrong stairs for a long time, did not help either). I also experienced the glitch where the contents in the safe is not frobable and had to reload to an earlier save. Also, not sure if it is mission specific or something introduced by TDM 2.06 but when playing on "Master Difficulty" there is a certain Holy Symbol which looks as a vase until picked up. It can be seen in the playthrough above at 18:11.

I just finished this great little mission while testing my Unofficial Patch. Everything worked fine on easy, but I had to check in here for the secret button as I suspected the frobable empty holder like Springheel. Maybe you should place a candle there on all difficulties! Also I had problems jumping from the first ladder to enter the high ground. Maybe something can be done there to make it easier. Last not least the voice over in the intro was rather quiet so I didn't get the connection between the Elixir and the painting. What was that all about? I would rather make stealing the formula and the sample the main objectives and turn the painting into normal loot...
