The ingame pictures are stored under the folder

Dark Mod/screenshots

Please upload the pics here (if you know how to reduce the size of the pics) or through an online uploader of your choice.

 

The screenshots did not save to the folder. Took my phone picture & brought the size down with photoshop.  Crap the picture I uploaded was wider. You can see a little of the jumbo spiral staircase on the right.

Spoiler

Find that position. Go left. Once inside the wall, go to where there's a beam blocking the way. climb over it & you'll find the doors, from the inside.There's woods behind me. The stairs are to the right.

Wish I had a COMPASS lol

Spoiler

 

The tunnel is to the left. It leads to a waterfall one floor under. Go over (haven't tried going down that hole) & past that to the right. There's a broken wall up ahead. Go through the hole & you're in.

When you go through the wall there's a fork in the path. To the right you can jump down to the floating things. To the left, jump over the beam & go straight ahead & you'll reach the doors.

 

There's another tunnel leading out to the woods, but I didn't explore that yet. Oh and a dead end tunnel with a gold plate & ruby.

I'm baffled how this came to be. You created the map & brushes/rooms right?

Thanks for the screenshot.

You have not found an alternative route into the Citadel and you have not entered the Citadel in the first place.

The described areas are part of the caves. I recommend you to explore every cave properly. Some of the tasks to be carried out I have already described in a previous post as I really thought you had already entered the Citadel itself.

Is there something down that hole with the waterfall?

You do not have to visit this area if you do not wish to complete an optional objective ("The Scepter of Discipline" - the related readables for triggering and the needed items can be found in the underwater station) or if you do not want to collect the ressources and the loot that can be found down there.

As for these things. I can't get them to stick to those frobable boxes where the skeleton is. Killed him. & how do I get into the little building with the blue glow?

Press "R" to remove an item from the inventory to put it into the player`s hand.

P.S. The same procedure  (pressing the "R" button) is necessary if you want to process the "Weathered Map" in the underwater facility...and it was also needed to remove the fuse from the inventory when you wanted to place it in the crane on top of the logistics building.

Mine is set to "L". R is set for Run. My settings are set to Thief 1. All the Thief versions are set to Thief 1 ;) 

I didn't do the crane yet. As for the 3 things.

Does it matter which box they go on? In another save I got the sigil to stick to the box next to the doors of the blue glowing room after placing the book on another, but it wouldn't  do it again. The book and hammer just lay on top. Can't get them back and the box is still frobbable, so it's not 'clicking'

Any ideas?

Yes, the boxes matter. Check the glass pictures above each box.

Got it. Where do I go to find out what happened to the citadel?Back where the jumbo stairs are that lead up to a cliff looking down at the skeletons, there's a bunch of mini cliffs to the

left to get to a lever on the other side.

Is that the 1st of the switches to pull? Does the window to the right open? I was halfway there when I jumped back and did something else...

No, no, no. You cannot solve this puzzle in the area (The Caves) you are currently in. You have to figure out what to do in the Caves. Go back to the table close to the shore with the giant steps and read the scroll there once again.

Then explore all caves and see if you can find a switch that activates something.

You still have not entered the Citadel; the objective you have mentioned above is the second to last you can solve once you have entered the Citadel (and before that, there are lots of other tasks to be fullfilled in the Citadel.)

@nbohr1more has uploaded version 3 to the mirrors today.

Changes:

1. After consultation with Amadeus, we've added a new readable in the underwater station with an additional hint for the bomb problem

2. Fixed one more inappropriate team allocation

3. Fixed several texture glitches

4. Replaced the music piece after completion of the ritual room puzzle with a more fitting selection from the core mod. This music piece stops now, once the player has frobbed the chapel key (before that, the music stopped when the player used the key at the chapel gate).

5. Changed two objective descriptions to avoid confusion
