Idea: Electricity Arrows


Recommended Posts

Apart that you have the possibility to make noise everytime, not only with a kick in a door, you will do this in TDM only in situations when making noise isn't a problem and not precisely in a house full of guards.

Ussing the micro to include external noise is only possible in a complete quiet room, not when sounds the phone or the doorbell in the moment when you are behind a big spider or elite guard. It is not very healthy and desirable.

Kicking in doors works as well with the game thematically as a submachine bow and quips about balls of steel. Well hey, if we're taking inspiration from Postal, how about the ability to unzip your pants and piss on torches to put them out too? If you want to make Corbin Nukem in your own FM, that's fine because there's some great joke FMs out there for Thief, but it's not something that works well with every other FM. If breaking down doors is something that does get put into the game, it should be a breakable flag such as how Thief uses, but no kicking, that's just silly. (Even then, nobody breaks down doors in Thief anyway.)

At least the mic idea was founded on the focus of sound in the game, it just was just redundant and not relevant to 90% of the players.

As for the ice, T3 actually had similar with oil slicks. I'm unsure if TDM can handle bringing a character back up after they've been ragdolled, but that would be a cool trap (though, redundant with the flash bomb so it's not really necessary). T3 tends to get overlooked (for good reason) but it did have some nice stuff.

Ok, this thread lends itself a bit to brainstorming. I don't think anyone intends to turn TDM into Postal 2 and make guardians vomit with pissed donuts.
As I said before, I would be satisfied with expanding the possibilities of the tools and taking better advantage of the objects in the environment, which in some missions already exists in specific situations. This is, a Garret a little more McGyver, this if it would fit well with the character.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
