Can either of the people who have experienced the stuck guard confirm that they have NOT manually changed cm_backFaceCull to 1, and that they're using 2.06?

Can confirm. I don't know how to use that command and I'm using 2.06 /64

Ah! I heard him say it once but the only part of that information that remained in my head afterwards was "I remember seeing that something something mage's guild"

I had to wait until I was at a computer to respond to this so I could check out exactly where all the secrets are.

 

Here's the list

I cannot find this. Is it near the 3 pipes?

Nevermind. I found it.

Great mission, but that's pretty standard for you Goldwell. I liked almost everything although I feel that the map was a bit too oversized. The amount of non-enterable buildings just felt like bloat, if you make more of them open in act 2 then I'll take that back. Only managed to get 2 or 3 secrets, but better than nothing. I didn't also quite like the put the loot in the safe thing primarily because it threw off the statistics in the end, and the 1.5k loot that I stored in the safe did not count on the stats.

Really loved the non-linearity, that you could buy your gear mid mission, the voice acting, the intro cutscenes which are always great.

I'm pretty embarrassed to admit that it took me 5 minutes to figure out that I had to read a note I never noticed that I found to continue on with the mission, though.

Oh and I forgot to mention two things, the first is that I managed to get stuck on the railing, short wall, whatever that is right next to the staircase that you spawn in. It's minor but if you will at some point update the mission you might as well take a gander at it. https://i.imgur.com/kgA2cSb.jpg

The other is probably not related to the mission itself, but when I quickloaded one time on the rooftops the entire map looked like it was covered in fog, sort of reminded me of Life of the Party in Thief 2, the fog was really short range and disappeared when I reloaded the save again.

Ha, I quoted you last time but forgot to ask. You mean future missions involve something going on in there? Or is there more to it?

It's a continually evolving room, so in act 2 it's different and in act 3 it's different.

I really like the exploring aspect. For example

Spoiler

 

I have also found like 3 secrets in the time of like 1 hour. They all were pretty good hidden only by exploring every corner and jump mantle you could find them. The secret with boxes was pretty satisfying. I'm hoping to get at least 6 out of 8, but will go for 8 :D

 

Great mission so far.

Also I must mention how I really enjoyed how many lootable paintings there are. I think this is something that is really lacking in most of the fan missions. In your mission, there are lootable painting in almost all apartaments and shops, which is quite nice for someone who appreciates the stealing aspect of Thief :)

 

PS. Since I love breaking things up I found one visual "bug" if you could call it, the smoke from one of the chimney is misaligned.

Spoiler

 

This place can be accessed by opening this vent and jumping onto it and roof ^.^

 

Spoiler

 

Also nice view :D I guess it wasn't intended to get there, but it's understandable.

 

Spoiler

 

And lastly apparently I found 773 loot out of 4404. I'm assuming this is after I deposited 1,5k in the box for rent, but damn. That would mean I missed more than 2k in loot overall? I felt like I explored every canny of the map, lol. Also I found 5 out of 8 secrets.

 

Nice mission, cheers! :)

Yes the 1.5k deposit into the safe seems to have messed with the final loot count, i'm not even sure how to fix that bug but that would mean your actual loot found would be 2273.

 

Thanks for the bug report as well, if I come back to this mission again i'll be sure to fix that.

 

Also thanks for the kind words about my mission, glad you had a good time :)

 

I'm currently plugging away at act 2 which has turned into a much bigger project than I expected, but here's a little teaser of a scene I just finished up doing

Looks interesting, like Veeall said, good ambience :D

 

By the way I hope those big white doors near Thiefs Guild window will be open in Act 2. I got an idea that this was a Builders place and they were singing in there or something, thought we would get to explore it in Act 1. Possibly Act 2 or 3? :D Or I guess you put it there just as an sound effect to make better atmosphere for the level which is fine either way.

In Act 2 Corbin needs to visit some other districts in Northdale to follow up on the leads he found from the first night, so while you wont get to explore that specific builder location there is a rather large Builder complex in the Grimwood district that you get to explore ;)

Oh, wow. I kinda figured part of the reason you said the following acts would take less time to complete was because they shared some of the hub. But I guess you're taking the Hammond route and sparing no expense. :P

Act 2 takes place on the very next night so the hub is there in full just with new and different shops and places to explore this time, and for the curious minded you can read and follow what impact your actions from the night prior have had on Northdale. That is all ontop of the main mission areas as well, so there is quite a lot to do. I have spared no exp-... nevermind.
