Mission Idea: The cursed Clavichord. (This mission needs this particular asset).

So this Mission would require a Clavichord to be made but I think this would be a great asset as well for future FMs.

That would be a nice asset to have and not too hard to make as it's pretty boxy. It's just the textures that make it look so nice.

Or even more boxy like an old Piano. But Clavichords sounds very obsolete and depressing which is perfect for TDM. 

 

Hopefully this serves as inspiration. :P

You know what we're really missing ? Some proper museum heist mission, akin to the Wieldstrom Museum in TDS. I love that mission ("Still Life with Blackjack"). One of the finest in the original Thief games. I've often felt they left the best for last, as far as traditional heist missions go. That museum is just awesome, and though people give The Cradle a lot of praise for atmosphere and unease, I think the museum mission is one of the best "get in and steal methodically" heist levels of the series (along with the bank mission in TMA). Though I've liked the museum in the older FM Broken Triad, it was a bit smaller. Imagine a reasonably sprawling museum map (tough to enter at first, but worthwhile) in TDM.

And to create some music for it is easy:
search for a midi song you like, import the midi to LMMS, use instrument "harpichords01.ogg" for the tones and record to ogg.

Hm, I like the idea. I am currently working on a mini-mini campaign, comprising of two missions. The idea was inspired by the Sly games, in which you usually have a couple of missions simply preparing the great heist. I am planning on having a first mission, in which you prepare to enter a building (and maybe get a couple of other boni) and performing the heist in the second mission. I am still working on the first and had firt planned some sort of mansion as the second, which I later changed to a church, but the idea of a museum intrigues me... I think I will adapt this and make the second mission a museum. Now I have "only" to finish the first one.

What sort of things would be in the museum? Stuffed Belchers? Preserved Zombie Corpses? Steambeasts on display? Stuffed Manbeasts? Magical Artifacts? Fine art and statues, pagan relics, historical objects, armor from the barbarian horselords, a stuffed sea monster hanging from the ceiling...

I don't know about a museum per se, but I like heist FMs that are in sprawling & highly secured institutions, where you have to methodically plan and make your way into & through the place.
