Garrett’s home remade in TDM

Recommended Posts

Technically it's the apartment ?


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

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.”

But a Master Thief can have a 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.
