Melan, thank you. This was my first ever TDM mission and it was a delight. Fantastic thiefy feel, and although I'm still finding my way around the controls and what I can do with weapons and jumping,

After playing this level I feel like saying "Eat shit, Assassin's Creed, tense & slow mountain climbing is way cooler than fast and overly capable parkour", but that's probably just me.   I am cur

Fun little mission.

 

The way in which you made it is probably the bigger story. If I had more time, I'd consider researching some DR stuff and taking a crack at making a level. I have no level design experience, but some programming and graphic design experience, so I could likely learn. Alas. Maybe if my personal and/or professional schedule magically clears up...one can hope, eh?

If you have "some programming and graphic design experience", you have much more than I had when I started making fan missions. I am far from a tech person, but managed, and that was with the much more odd Dromed.

 

You do need some time, but if you want to do it, you can do it.

Thanks for the encouragement. I really would need to set aside more time than I'm willing to currently, but may revisit the idea later this year. In the meantime, I'm just thrilled I found TDM and have been having fun playing through a lot of the content.

Excellent mission, though I am afraid the map icon is broken. It just shows a dark, slightly transparent black spot in the inventory. There's also a typo on one of the readables in the bedroom. I forgot to screenshot it, too busy messing around.

You can call me Phi, Numbers, Digits, Ratio, 16, 1618, or whatever really, as long as it's not Phil.

I am curious if anyone else bothered to do this, but as usual I'm pretty sure the answer is no, and it really doesn't matter either way.

 

Regardless, I'm curious if there's some way to all loot this mission without the box usage.

I like to record difficult stealth games, and right now you wonderful people are the only ones delivering on that front.

Click here for the crappy channel where that happens.

You can get all loot without crating. I will watch the vid tonight to see what exactly you did. :)

The box is only saving you from a little light injury.

 

I've attempted to ghost this mission, but I wasn't patient enough at the lit archway, and I completely missed the scary jumps, particularly the last one to the suit of armour.

Impressive job doing the mission with a zero stealth score! Although that AI at the central arch lined up just perfectly - I personally find it very hard to slip by them unseen, let alone without an alert.

 

I see how and why you used that package. I believe you need it if you want to go for zero damage taken.
