  1. Definitely not intended. I’ll look into this as soon as I am able.
  2. Well dang thanks for linking it then. His words sting less now. “He got LAST in the CoNtEsT!” I was like geez thanks for reminding me bruh haha It’s still super fun for me to see someone play something I created. Watching those “Got ‘em!” moments, or seeing a roundabout way to tackle a situation I hadn’t dreamed of. Couldn’t be happier
  3. Thanks for that! I love watching other people play. How embarrassing that first chokepoint is borked, no one reported the first lantern guard in the forest having a broken path. (when you looped back around and saw him again "Oh he's back to his old tricks!" made me chuckle.) On the list now obviously lol. Still watching the vid; 3 hrs might take me a while to get through A few quotes: "Alright horse gimme ur money. Oh what? I just robbed a horse!"
  4. I used to love opening the manual for the first time and flipping the pages real quick in front of my face whilst taking a big nasal inhale. Nothing better than new game manual smell. You just don’t get that anymore.
  5. Tru dat! My first ever Thief experience was in 5th grade, when my older brother brought home a PC game magazine that had an Eidos demo disc with it. Included were demos for Tomb Raider 1 & 2, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Omicron: The Nomad Soul (wasn't effin' David Bowie in that game?!), Revenant, Commandos, and lastsly TDP. Some were just cutscenes, some were playable demos of the first level, so obviously I must have played Bafford's Manor about 200 times. Naturally I bought it and TMA and played the ever loving shit out of them. My dad must have taken them away about 10 times because he didn't want me playing M rated games, so I would just keep buying them at a different EB Games after he chewed out the employees for selling it to a minor. At one point I got my hands on a promo copy that was still Rating Pending, and I convinced my dad it stood for Role Playing so it wasn't as bad, haha. Fast forward a few years to TDS and I bought an original XBOX just to play it. Used to frequent GameFAQs and that's how I stumbled onto TTLG. Disappointed like most everybody else with TDS I learned about FMs, and went back to TMA for years. Learned about TDM around 2007 and lurked for a decade because my machine was trash so I was content to play old stuff til I got a decent rig. Always had the dream I'd like to make a Fan Mission of my own. Couple years ago I got a gaming rig specifically to FINALLY play TDM, and damn. It was like reliving my childhood. I played a bunch of the classics and helped beta a few FMs before I decided to take a crack at making an FM. Got stuck on the first dmap for 6 months before I had the courage to ask for help, and I'm ashamed I waited so long. The friends I've made along way, the funny convos and ideas tossed back and forth have been invaluable during this pandemic. Starting a family and a business leaves me with no time for a personal life, so it's no understatement that TDM and this community have been my primary source of stress relief for 4 yrs, and I wish to express my thanks to any who bothered to read this far. Not only that, but designing and building an FM has been the FUNNEST (albeit technically frustrating because I'm a dyslexic caveman) gaming experience I've ever had. I used to want to be game tester like all 10 yr olds, always loved making maps for old PC games and thought maybe a level designer or environment artist might be more feasible. I learned however, I am not cut out for the schooling and I'd never be able to find a stable gig. So this passion project helps fulfill those dreams I had as a kid, and I still get goosebumps every time I create a new room and plop some furniture and an AI in then test it. Releasing this mission really does mean A LOT to me, practically a life long dream come true. And the overwhelmingly positive feedback makes it that much better! Can't wait to make the next (much smaller) FM. Just want to say thanks to the community and this FM is just my small way of giving back. Thanks for playing!
  6. Thanks man, I appreciate that. I’m happy to have been in the running at all. Can’t believe I even finished a map, so it’s a win for me either way! I’m still working my way through all the content entries, yours is up next!
  7. ^what he said. IRIS!!! Whooo congrats @Wellingtoncrab its a good day to taff around!
  8. I’m not sweating it, just a missed opportunity to learn something, is all. This mission is finished and released! Version 2 gets some work when I need a break from PtB:1.
  9. I’m really blown away with the number of 5’s I’ve gotten in my poll thus far. Glad folks seem to be enjoying my mission overall. As for the 1 in gameplay, I am not butthurt. But if the user who cast that vote would like to share why, either publicly here, or privately in DM, I’d greatly appreciate it. All criticism is constructive for me as a newb mapper. Thanks, taffers!
  10. It’s never too late to pay respects! To say this community wouldn’t be what it is, or won’t be the same without him, is truly an understatement. He’s helped so many newb mappers like myself over the years and inspired so many. I barely talked to him besides a few mapping questions, but always wanted to reach out and have a cup of coffee or a pint. I live less than a 20 minute drive from him and frequently travel there for life and work anyway but never got around to it Got busy with starting a family and new business and the pandemic. Not gonna lie it chokes me up a bit every time I boot up TDM. Thief has always been in my top 5 favorite games, and his contributions to the mod made him seem legendary to me. I just wanted to thank him in person for helping to inspire me to make a map for my favorite mod of all time. Just never got around to hitting him up and saying “hey let’s get together for a drink and some nerdy game chat!” Such is life sometimes, but publishing a map was a dream I’ve had for over a decade, I lurked around for a long time before registering and started work on a map, so I want to say thanks here for indirectly helping me fulfill a dream, grayman.
  11. Thanks for playing! I’m glad you had fun. Hopefully I constructed it in a way a second play through on higher difficulty will still be fun. I agree with your last statement. If the pagan cave was already discovered on your way up, then there’s little excitement left on your way back, other than an opportunity to grab loot you missed. When I update, I plan to have the gate by the stables be an alternate exit point, once all objectives are completed. That would really help I think, thoughts? -Jedi
  12. Played it for a few hours last night and hopefully I can finish it tonight after the kids go to sleep. I must say, hot damn! This is one fun mission. Exploration and map design are top notch. It all interweaves and connects so well! Your storytelling and narrative style are awesome, all the readables are fantastic! This must be an alt account or something, there's no way it's your first map, its just too good! Brilliant job. Definitely gave me Life of the Party vibes.
