FM List By Type

Recommended Posts

Also, when 2.0 rolls around, it'll be nice not only to have a recommended FM list, but for TTLG people to have that thread & we can have a wiki page on the categories so people feel a little more comfortable thinking about what FMs to play and they can find the kind they want.

 

Best would be tagged missions with proper tags :)

I think some kind of tagging oder categorization for the missions would be inded a good idea. Right now a new player gets a big list of 50 missions slapped into his face and there is absolutly no way to find the missions he prefers, except to play them all...

This would first mean to set up the categories. I mean it isn't of much use if the number of categories equals the number of missions. In this case the player could just read the mission description. ;)

It seemed so to me. The first post in this thread (by demagogue) lists 29(!) categories.

But 30 is already a lot. Having only a dozen or so would be more effective IMHO.

Anyway, as for the TTLG thread, the admins over there have added TDM missions now:

http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=141641&p=2190221&viewfull=1#post2190221

 

I got a PM from them, and they were asking us to look over the post & confirm that the FMs are in good places. Would you guys mind?

 

She just took the first categories she saw & said they were flooded with work to do & it was too much to read this thread, so some could very well be in the wrong place. It's much easier for them for us to just give exact corrections to that post entry. Some of them were put into more than one category after all too & she said if others are in more than one category she can add them.

 

Then she added this:

Also missing missions for the Christmas contest. And no information at all on the Halloween speed-build. Was it cancelled?

 

 

And I don't know, still, where to put Thieves.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Oops, I don't think you'll have access to that thread, since it's a test thread, so here's how it looks:

 

I can see a few obvious changes to make I'll tell them now, like "Hammerite Builders"; I should ask how this is organized, if they're mixed in with the T2 missions or right under them, and have them separate the words accordingly...

 

Edit: After a little feedback, I think "Hammerites (TDM Builders)" is best (least confusing) for the full heading, then our FMs are a space after T2 FMs but no special sub-heading for them.

If most of missions going somewhere between categories, let embrace it with "half and quarter" pattern:

Give "A" to dominating category, but no more than 2 times. If there are any minor elements worth mentioning, put "B" (2 or less).

("main areas", "sealed areas" etc is just to break long list into eye-friendly groups).

 

-------------------------------------------- Mission xyz ---------------------------------------

<Main areas>

City streets --------------------------------- o

Fortress ------------------------------------- A

Outdoor ------------------------------------- B

Caves (sewer) ----------------------------- o

 

<Sealed areas>

Prison ---------------------------------------- o

Graves --------------------------------------- o

Bank ----------------------------------------- o

Warehouse --------------------------------- o

 

<Prised areas>

Museum ------------------------------------- o

Sacral ---------------------------------------- o

Mansion ------------------------------------- o

Ancient -------------------------------------- o

Apologies for necromancy (do you have that here?) I've just added Cleighmoor to Wm Steele in the Series category but I think that's about it since adding Glenham Tower to the Horror and Undead categories in June last year. I know that TTLG categories aren't the greatest fit for TDM but this is just a reminder that if you'd like to have your mission listed then just let me know where it should go. Now I have a pc that plays TDM and am very slowly working my way through the missions, I do check in here quite often so will get any pms. Otherwise, you're welcome to pm me at TTLG or post in the thread itself.

I can put yours in the thread, dema, as someone did review the mission. There isn't a review for Requiem but I'll check out the German playlist, thanks Moonbo.

 

But there are a load of videos available which don't have a handy review to stick them next to, e.g. Requiem, so I am sort of toying with the idea of creating a video thread as well, or a video post in the Review thread or some unclunky way to list all fm videos.

Not sure if this counts, but the Polish thief forums did do a pretty long review of Requiem (http://thief-forum.pl/viewtopic.php?p=141581#p141581) is it worth cross-posting over at the mega thread?

But you should walk having internal dignity. Be a wonderful person who can dance pleasantly to the rhythm of the universe.

I think I forgot about videos - there's now a separate video thread but I think all available LPs have been added.

 

We are upgrading the Mission by Type Thread. Church and Cathedral have been separated and so have Pagan and Outdoor. I have left these as cathedral but perhaps someone could let me know if they should be in a church instead.

 

Alberic's Curse

Caduceus of St Alban, The: St Alban #1

Requiem

St Albans Cathedral: St. Alban #2

Tears of St. Lucia

 

Pagan or Outdoor

 

No Honor Among Thieves - is now in outdoor?

 

Winter Harvest no longer appears to be available - is that correct?

 

There will be a few more weeks' work before the thread goes live but there are quite a few new categories so when that happens, if any author would like their mission added to any new category, just pm or email me. We did take note of the fact that the current categories weren't always a good fit for TDM.

Requiem has an LP by Fen (

) and a German LPer (
). The German guy actually did a few other TDM FM's, all on that same playlist.

 

I like how StgRumpel uses the German language interface :wub:

 

The video could really use a few more views and likes, so if someone has a youtube account, it would be cool if you could click through them, even if you don't understand German :)
