about dragging the bodies

Hi, so what can I say? I love this mod and I can't wait new better and better missions. Great job guys:)

 

But...

 

Forgive me, I will write about flaws this time. There's one thing that annoys me: bodies dragging. It's so uncomfortable because there are problems with dragging the bodies through the narrow areas(door frames). Unfortunately the best way to transport the body is not pulling it, but pushing, but it's far less realistic... Pulling the body is difficult, ineffective, and it kills some of the immersion in my opinion, so why chose this option?...(;  I think carrying bodies known from Thief series is much better because it is more comfortable and quicker(player doesn't have to fight with physics). Why not implement it to the Darkmod then?;)

Frob an corpse and hit the "use" button, you will be surprised

In fairness, that gameplay wiki document is huge and the mention of this one, fairly obscure feature is way down near the bottom.

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

I like both the shouldering and the dragging options, they serve different purposes. I was playing Chalice and wanted to hide a body in the kitchen storeroom. To my surprise, the dragging lets you grab hold of individual limbs so that you can perfectly position a body just where you want it.

There, now no-one will notice.

 

This will make things like hiding a body under a bed so a guard doesn't spot it possible (I'll have to test this out with a guard patrol though, don't know if they would notice or not).

That servant's in for a surprise if someone startles him to wake him up xD

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
