They sure were, Ronald. They sure were.

Another highly enjoyable mission. I was amazed to find I only got 6300 out of 8300 gold, must have missed more than I thought in those street mazes, even though I got to places no mere mortal was meant to reach!

My favourite part was the guard station,

Spoiler

and I am really curious how this whole "shipments to the north" business is gonna tie together in the end. Only regret is touching those jewels in the cell after reading the note in the evidence safe!

Hi, just tried this mission and hit a progress halting issue... might be a bug?

Spoiler

At the start there is a fight amongst AI. One of them dies. Whenever I get down to the streets I get a 'mission failed', presumably because of the dead AI (not sure what else it could be)? Not sure how to continue. Seems like the game thinks I did the kill? I've tried restarting a few times. All that changes is the AI dies in different places. I always get mission failed once getting to the streets though.

I'm on the latest DarkMod.

Completed it! It was a good mission! Thanks for creating it. I enjoyed the atmosphere of creeping across the rooftops and the story/notes along the way. Looking forward to try the next in the series.

Got stuck on one bit and had to look at the guide. Maybe it's just me? You can add it to the pile of subjective feedback if it's helpful.

Spoiler

I didn't find the connection between the builder temple and the inventions guild area without using a guide. I went towards the other area where the women jumps to her death and then combed that area over and over about 3x. I thought that maybe I needed to sneak in via the water through the sewers. I viewed the guide and went back to the path I'd missed.

Also I went back and checked the objectives, I don't know how I missed the 'stay off the streets' one now, just didn't read it properly I guess. I'm trying to remember if it got highlighted as a failed objective when you go on the streets...? I'm not sure and can't check right now.

Thanks again. Next, mission 3...

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
