Thank you so much!

Actually I was led by my own spontanious inspiration and I spent many many hours on details, which I miss in most of the maps (it brings the liveness in, so the player can emphatize much better and feel like every single AI lives a life of his own), even if I made only couple of rooms.

I had some of the map drawn on paper and some plot on my mind, above mystery (which I love in Thief and TDM) that can be revealed only if player explore the area in detail. I had 3 different atmospheres in mind with tremendous ammount of secrecy, which could blend perfectly with the plot.

 

Though the area would be gigantic and my knowlage of mapping is poor, as this is my first ever project I got into. If anyone (or more) experienced mappers'd be willing to help I'd love to give it a go. :)

I currently have that map and when I can find a co-auther it will get finished.

You are kidding right, your first map? :blink:

 

If your serious I can help you like I helped Moonbo. He did the majority of the work (his map after all) and I fix the perf, make mapping suggestions so he knew where he was going wrong. And as most people would agree his map turned out quite well.

 

Drop me a PM

Yes it's my first one. :D But I quit because of the rate I was making this, it'd take year or two before I got it as I imagined it, with working on it almost every day.

Oh yes his map was incredible! Also the maps of yours I have played are awesome Bikerdude, I hope you can help me out when the time comes as well ;)

 

[slightly offtopic]

I have watched a few of your youtube videos of rooms you have made and stuff which is awesome. You have such a keen eye for detail ;)

This FM needs to be completed at all costs! I'm busy working on my own TDM projects at the moment but even if I wasn't, judging by the quality in your screenshots, I don't think there is anything I could really add to your FM. Best of luck with this!

Aryx, from reading the comments in the "what are you working on" thread, I gather that most mappers need several months to finish their works. So you would be perfectly on time if you took only a year to finish your map in that quality. Really, the attention to details is incredible, and the quality your screenshots show is at least on par with Moonbo's "Requiem", especially since this is your very first map. You really really should finish your work and bless us lowly leechers with another grand work! ^_^

Thank you! :) Well I have much in mind for this map - more then one level in a map so it would take a while. Thankfully, Bikerdude and Fieldmedic are willing to help me out, that way this map may see the light of the day in the near future.

  • 3 months later...

I just saw the "Thief Mod Competition" that's going on and I was wondering if anyone would like to finish this map? I can provide a storyline, map sketches and all that goes with the map. Anyone interested please PM me.

Did you make any progress on this since novembre? I'd love to see this map getting released.

 

No I haven't due to lack of time... My work and music production take most of my free time now, so there's no way I can make this project happen. That's why I'd like to find someone to make it happen.

That was why I asked - I thought you three guys have already made that mission a perfect gem. :)

      While I did find Springheel's brushwork pretty questionable, I guess engine performance must also have come a long way during the recent five years, because I can safely say that the kind of performance issues that he's talking about in this video, just didn't happen to me when I fully opened up my basement with all its unoptimized brushwork. The framerate was capped at a nice 60 FPS no matter how I tried, and with visportals on top of this, and the complexities turned into "func_static":s, an uncapped framerate would just be obscene, at least for graphics cards only a few years old. I no longer have any worries about large areas and vistas - I'll just go nuts. It's gonna be fine.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.
