  1. "Pals, Cataluna, Spain" https://twitter.com/architecturehub/status/1320662719582900225
  2. This description of the ancient sewers of Paris, from Les Misérables: The full book of six chapters on the subject is worth a read if you really want to immerse yourself in the setting (so to speak)! The first chapter is skippable, and I pulled the quote from the end of the fourth chapter.
  3. Look at these amazing street layouts- Venice (One day, I will post somewhere other than this inspiration thread...)
  4. Apologies if this has been posted before, but these book covers are absolutely wonderful: https://publicdomainreview.org/collections/the-art-of-book-covers-1820-1914/ The era is a little later than the usual setting (around the end of the nineteenth century, mostly) but there are some great ones regardless. My fave: Moses Wolcott Redding. Standard Ahiman Rezon and Blue Lodge Guide. New York : Redding & Co., 1889
  5. Source: https://twitter.com/archpng/status/1063291834225623041. "The Morgan Library & Museum"
  6. Thanks for the feedback both of you! That support for missing objects seems really detailed, and perfect for some things I want to do. Maybe I'll skip the interaction between the guard and the key for now. Also, I forgot to say - I'm really impressed at both this video series and Sotha's. It's awesome to have such high-quality, detailed, and recent tutorials! Thanks everyone for all the work that's been put into helping FM authors .
  7. More from Antwerp - I regret not taking more photos on this visit! Though my phone camera is a bit crap. The old meat market has an intersting square out the front The Steen, an old castle that is perfectly sized and interestingly shaped The Plantin-Moretus museum which is all about some of the earliest printing presses:
  8. I'm really keen to get back into the Dark Mod and I plan to follow through these videos and produce a little mission! I've already watched most of Sotha's bakery job series and built myself a little test room so I know that everything's set up and working. I just have a question for Springheel, if you're still happy to act as a sounding-board: how difficult would it be to create a guard patrol that goes sort of like this:
  9. There's a restaurant in Antwerp called Pelgrom which is located in an old brick cellar below ground level. Its atmosphere is fantastic and very Thiefy thanks to the brick, low ceilings and doors, and it being lit mainly by candles. Here's the official gallery, but there are a lot of pictures available if you search. And here's a nice travel blog post about it with a little more information. EDIT: if anyone's in the area I highly recommend checking it out, and drinking a Westmalle or a Koninck "Triple D'Anvers"
  10. Source: https://twitter.com/archpics/status/1010899100232028160, apparently from somewhere in Barcelona. I love that it looks quite Thiefy despite being a brightly-lit afternoon. I think it's the light/shadow contrast that does it, along with the colours and of course the lovely buildings!
