What was the bug tracker # for that another issue?

Wasn't able to find a bugtracker issue for it, but I found the thread where it was discussed. The changes took place around the 21st of March (i.e. rev 15880-15882).

I'm not even sure whether the code or only the assets was changed, but I've never seen this black lamp issue before 2.08, and now it comes up regularly and is fixable by adding quotation marks. This is even though stgatilov found a piece of code in the linked thread that suggests this shouldn't have an effect ingame.

Sounds like an easy fix at least. I'll have to add that to the list of updates going out for my missions.

A small fix for particle fog rendering near water:

tdm_ghouse_sfx.mtr

Needs to be added to a materials sub-folder in the darkmod/fms/northdale1 folder

tdm_sfx.mtr

Another amazing mission!

 

I loved the Thieves' Highway and the black market merchant's shop especially, but it was all great. I continue to be amazed that people can create such terrific missions.

I finished with a stealth score of 9 and only two knockouts. It's hard to tell, given the mission setup, how much loot I was still missing but I think I was about 1,500 short. And I only found 2/7 secrets.

There was one small bug I encountered though:

Spoiler

The contract where I had to falsify the bookbinder's records didn't quite work. I got the scribbling sound and the "goal complete" cheerful sound but I did not get paid.

 

Also, LOL

Just finished SoN Act I.

Superb intro video. Very professional.

I liked that while at first the map looks large, the scope is contained and you don't get overwhelmed with side quests or endless non-essential locations. I liked the setup with non-aggressive guards and how the act gets introduced well into the mission (excellent touch). The shop always is a nice addition but I didn't find much need for any of the tools other than the rope arrow which, surprisingly, and given the setup of the second part, wasn't of much use need either.

I had a peaceful thieving experience in two gorgeous locations. Looking forward to Act II! Oh and...

The skeleton scared the hell out of me. You got me, ok? Movie-like thrilling moment with no resolution. Perfect.

Something I noticed: The mission has the tittle:

Shadows of Northdale ACT I

With a capital letter i, instead of a 1. This means it's listed in the mission selection screen right under ACT 2, instead of above. Changing it to 1 in darkmod.txt fixes this.

 

Yeah I noticed that too, I do have plans to rename the missions so that they flow more naturally in the mission selection screen.

Thank you for bringing this up! I’ll look into it and see if I can find a solution. 
 

There are a few bugs with this mission that I need to resolve so it’s a bit overdue for some fine tuning.

I tested this. Frobbing the paintings in the first screenshot (using v.2.12 on Windows 10) gave me no crash.

      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.

      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! 💪
