Fan Mission: Business as usual by b1k3rdude (14/01/2010) Christmas FM Contest Entry

The original version of my first ever map and came 3rd in the first even tdm mapping contest, however the work of art you see now has undergone 3 overhauls since then. The core idea was always to build a simple but effective city map, and I think the ciurrent version does that :-)

 

What places have you found so far, as Im betting you havent found everything.

Well I started in my house, then broke into my neighbor's at the second floor (which leads to a small balcony), and afterward got to the tavern (my favorite place) including its attic and the small garden behind it. Overall I went into all the obvious buildings: The tower, which has a metal hatch that leads to a small outside area secured by fences. The hotel patrolled by the guard, including its attic and all rooms. And of course the sewer segment. Not sure what that outpost at the end was... where a guy sits behind a metal grate window in a small room.

Well there a few more places that you have to find then -

 

 

  • the thiefs hideout in the sewers
  • a small room high above the tavern.
  • The buildings across from the hotel.
  • The wine shop behind the hotel, you cant gain access at street level.
  • and a small guard room high up, hint think patrolling archer

  • Sorry... I did find the thief's hideout in the sewers. It was necessary to complete an objective IIRC.
  • I also found the attic of the tavern, not sure if that's what you meant.
  • Not certain which buildings across the hotel, I might or might have not found these.
  • I don't remember the wine shop, so possibly one I missed.
  • Probably didn't find the guard room either.

Fun mission. I got all the objectives, found the hidden chest and finished but...

 

Spoiler

I couldn't find the key to the chest. I see in this thread someone said "look in the garden" I loaded the game back up and ran around with most of the guards knocked out and saw no garden anywhere, saw some vines near the tavern but thats it.

Spoiler

This mission has been updated, and I suspect the garden was removed, because I also spent a while looking for a garden after failing to find the key myself and checking these forums.

It's not in any garden. Keep going for more specific clues.

Spoiler

There's a readable nearby about how the key is kept near her deceased brother.

Spoiler

There's a portrait of her deceased brother in her rooms.

Spoiler

It's behind the door to her rooms.

Spoiler

It's frobbable, and will reveal the key behind it.

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
