Corona Competition 2020

Recommended Posts

Not a bad idea, but please call it someothing else. ;) I don't think we'd want to downplay the seriousness of this virus.

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.

Agreed, that is a great idea. Probably lots of people will be in need of quality gaming material, and we might even be able to reach a new audience. We'll definitely need a theme and timeframe I would think though.


My Fan Missions:

   Series:                                                                           Standalone:

Chronicles of Skulduggery 1: Pearls and Swine                     The Night of Reluctant Benefaction

Chronicles of Skulduggery 2: A Precarious Position              Langhorne Lodge

Chronicles of Skulduggery 3: Sacricide

I thought CC was cool, but maybe we could put a Word with D in-between ;) then shorten it for the pk4 files.

Come up with ideas for a name guys. Hey graphic guys, can you make Corona beer bottles, just to add flavor to the mix? Not that they have any flavor...

TTLG.com is shooting the idea down cuz I totally forgot about the 20th anniversary of Thief is on March 23rd(which is the due date)! Is it T2 or Gold? T1 was 1998.

Ha, not a terrible idea. What are the guidelines/deadline?

It's gotta be some sorta virus thing. I remember in T2 that there was an awesome FM with a disease Garret contracts & he had to go find an antidote. I Think it was a Campaign & I Think the same author for 7 Crystals (those Graphics & design changed a lot of Surfaces & furniture, & stuff that stuck) made it or was in on it. Wait… Christine or something. Germany I Think.

Anyways, I was thinking a game that could end up with 2 outcomes, depending on some grand puzzle! Save the World or die with the rest of the World... Got ideas on that, but will only PM that to the Builders...

I've Always hated Zombies in Thief. Scared the crap outta me all the time. With all the stuff on Zombies on any video screen, got kinda tired of them too, but I guess there's gotta be some kinda zone for them too, but once you kill them, even with a sword they should stay down. Sword, Arrow, anything through the head.

Quarantine & Curfew would be awesome. That would mean more Thieve's highways... Rope Arrows... Gotta have those.

How about Not setting a date to finish, for now? USA news says they should pan-out around mid-July, but I don't know, I doubt it.

I was also thinking then, how about we all get all our FM's to interlock into one huge Campaign Before realeasing it. Most countries have fast internet now. Not like 56 kbit back in 1998. Even Siberia, so downloading isn't a big deal anymore.

Let's just come up with something memorable & amazing 💥

I think the name should also be able to apply to the TDM world, so I'd recommend the Plague Contest. And I wouldn't put a hard limit on the themes, but roughly something appropriate to the circumstances, like plague, zombies, or just being cooped up in a house for a long time.

Can we not just through all these ideas over board and make a fun mission where the nameless hero has to find groceries? And muffled guards with face masks!

Can we have more scary Zombie Horror maps?

The name's gotta be more Epic then that. Who knew an epidemic would hit the 20th anniversary of Thief. Who knew the World would come to this kinda halt. I mean we should build a toilet paper factory just for fun (if that's possible) & all the other stuff that's worrying the World today. I Think it should be scary & funny at the same time in the following months of gloom… what was the name of the T2 FM where everybody is dancing in some dance hall/mansion Red...something. That made me laugh wandering in there. I'm gonna try to put some snow in mine. This time I'll freeze the water in the moat and skip that whole crash scenario...  I'll never forget the FM (except it's name) where rain was converted to Snow for the first time. I stood there for a long time & looked up at it, then zoomed into the darkness to get a Close up of the flakes. What amazed me was that everyone was different, just like the real thing!

Come to Think of it, I never finished it. It is huge!! There was like a ski slope in a forest with tree monsters. Remember those? That's where I stopped somewhere. Oh yeah now I remember why… My 17" HP widescreen P4 laptop got stolen 2003 :(

I mean, I'm fine with just calling it the Quarantine Contest, I don't think there needs to be a fancy name or anything. Also, I'm pretty sure we can't use "Garrett" as that would infringe on some copyright we don't want to even go near. Our dude's name is Corbin :). And since this is a contest that will presumably last only a few months, I don't think it's at all realistic to expect giant FMs. If we can keep the the guidelines relatively loose and the expectations relatively small, we might see more submissions. I personally would be down to make something, but it won't be anything giant or super fancy

Maybe distil the theme to "Outbrake"?

I can think of a mission where you have to unveil the conspiracy, by dark forces (the elite and the holy), and steal their antidote/cure. ^^

But I don't know if that would violate the "fake news" laws these days ;)

Something about plague, you guys could build. Zombies, a knockoff of The Gloom, plain old cholera, you name it.

Hmm. I already have a group of AI wearing plague masks in Samhain Night. There's a bit of work that won't need to be done.

Then we may as well call it (back to original) Corona Competition 2020... Let TTLG's anniversary play out this month. I mean, it's Thief after all !!

My half Century birthday is in 9 Days & EVERY restaurant, nightclub, bar, Arena in the whole F'n World is closed

I wonder if I could have a private party? Up to 10 people right?

So yeah, I'm thinking let's build some fun FM's during the coming gloom...

I don't have any guide lines...yet…  I just thought I/We could build some fun FMs while we wait in lock-down, till the end of the World lol

Jokes aside, this could be a fun thing either way.. Now everyone is online instead of outside. Watch how this turns out to change Everything for the better :)

Go to the "Corona Competition 2020" topic and you can read it all there. I have set no rules or due date. I thought we could all do this Before toilet paper literally runs out… ;)

I'm letting the whole Thief Community come together & figure it out. We're all in this together now. Globally!

 Go to the "Corona Competition 2020" topic I guess, it's all still there

It seems to be catching on, so I'm not say'n no more!! Let's see how big the Thief Community Really is ;)

Or Annihalation, Genocide (had help from siri Spelling that), Armegeddon? the list goes on & on this Swedish OS 10 sucks! Almost Everything in English is spelled wrong cuz the OS is in Swedish. I just ignore the red lines now & if I'm unsure about the Spelling I'll just ask Siri.

I prefer the massive destruction Movies like San Andreas Fault,, Pompeii, (haven't finished Noah yet), but thinking about adding a volcano. Is that possible in TDM? Random chunks of volcanic rock falling from the skybox. I mean the circumference needs to be lowered so that Garret's replacement name, which I forgot, it's on the main post somewhere, I don't remember. I'm tired... But the 23rd is so Close. Gotta push on … oh right, the circumference (like 6 feet in every direction is the norm for C19) so you don't get killed to fast... I'm thinking slowing the ash and molten rocks down like the asteroids in  the FM I just played with the 4 discs to mount on the thing, (got 3 of 4 so far) in where ever that is... Did I say I'm tired?

Ok going back to the FM

You guys should help! There are mostly "cosmetic" problems with the FM & some sound issues (lock picking is pretty quiet until the door opens then you get blasted with sound)

"Plague Contest" sounds like a good name to me, because it fits the quasi-historical period. "Corona" is a Latin word meaning "crown", but would not have been associated with disease in medieval times since viruses had yet to be discovered or named by the scientific community.

What about "The Plague of the Crown" because The Emperor was the first one to contract it whilst on a diplomatic trip, and it spread rapidly throughout Civitas?
