I think you’re confusing what a home and a house is :P

 

In English a home can be a house or an apartment or a duplex or whatever. It just refers to where the person lives.

 

This is Garrett’s home. That’s why he says “It’s not much but it’s home.”

That is so rad! 

I always wanted to see Garrett's home done up in TDM, or any bits of the thief missions for that matter. I'm definitely thinking you should sneak it into your missions somewhere ?.

Thanks!

 

I too have always wondered how a thief level would feel in TDM. It only took me a good solid few hours with most of the time trying to match up the dimensions and lighting correctly. 
 

And even though this is just a small slice, it was still a fun little experiment to do.

Is this supposed to be the home in the clockwork tower in newThief? If so, I miss a view out of the window at the roofs of the city ;)!

No it’s from a game called Thief: Deadly Shadows. 
 

It’s Garrett’s home in South Quarter.

It's a nice idea for a tribute, but you don't have to make this a 1:1 copy. Use different materials or lighting, or maybe make it a derelict home. An interpretation or extrapolation of the topic instead of exact representation.

I understand your point. And I agree that when making a tribute it’s a better idea to interpret it in your own way. 
 

However for this experiment I literally wanted to recreate Garrett’s home exactly as it was in T:DS just in TDM.

 

Thats why I didn’t interpret the work because my goal was different than what you’re suggesting.

Or Garrett's apartment from T2. (or that whole mission-map).

I love the conversion, goldwell!

So I'm guessing this will be Corbin's or Farrell's apartment in some future mission ? ?

I've toyed with the idea of giving the protagonist of the series of FMs I am working on a flat similar to either of the two Garrett had in the Thief trilogy. Given that Goldwell has already remade the Deadly Shadows flat in South Quarter, I might try to do something similar for my guy, but based on the earlier flat G. had in The Metal Age (the one from the mission where he has to clear it up quickly and leave, because the cops are after him).

Nope. 
 

It’ll be an Easter egg place to visit. 
 

In Shadows of Northdale I’ve already established Corbin’s home.

Fair enough. :)

I look forward to seeing your interpretation of Garrett’s home in your mission though! :)

I'd certainly like to vary it up a bit and give it more detail. The Dark Engine is simpler in this regard. So there would be stuff to expand upon visually. Maybe I could even change some of the exact layout of the inner walls, if I found the original a bit weirdly proportioned.

      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.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
