Congratulations. The mission looks like an original thief 1 or 2 mission at first glance. A true diamond for me.

Now I have to deal with tremors caused from excessive happiness due to all those new missions released suddenly.

Spoiler

You can find a clue in the archmage's quarters on how to handle the crystals on pedestals.

Spoiler

The tree uses the same texture as the crystals - it is indeed intentional.

By the way, please use spoilers for that part of the mission at least for now.

Wow, this is a lot more ambitious than a little contest mission.

Congratulations on releasing a new classic. It looks & plays great!

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I'll try to download it again from moddb instead of google and run TDMinstall again and see if this fixes it.

You have TDM 2.10 Beta v5 installed ?

Amazing work!
 

Spoiler

I was wandering around for hours, visiting places I had been yet, to look for things I previously did not get.
I decided to read a book, I already had, and that looked to be the key to see the things I already could see, but didn't see yet.


So I don't always read all the readables and and just now I found new ways, after playing on and off all day. This migt be the one of the most awsome missions I played : O

Yeah you need to be on the latest 2.10 beta zerg

I am on the last 2.10beta, but it don't work. Maybe the download from GDrive is corrupt., I'll see.

 

Edit: No way, Used TDM Update to the last 2.10 dev, download the written.pk4 this time from OneDrive. Same script error, don't work for me 🤔

The dev builds are older than the beta builds - you need to download the latest build from the "beta" category in the installer. The script error happens if the TDM .exe doesn't contain certain script events ( so, outdated ).

Seems I am out of emoji likes to use for the day :D But thank you all for the kind words everyone. I'm glad you guys seem to be enjoying it, despite the few technicalities involved in installing it

I'm unable to play this mission.

After the briefing video and being given the choice of Easy, Medium, or Hard difficulty, it briefly says "Generating World" and then immediately returns to the main menu (Start this mission, ... Quit)

From darkmod.log:

[/game/darkmodglobals.cpp ( 372):INI (INIT) FR:    0] The Dark Mod 2.10/64, code revision 9815 (1435:9815)

(then several entries, ending in:)

[/game/darkmodglobals.cpp ( 428):FRC (FORCE) FR:    0] LogClass_STATE: 0

Has anyone seen this error before?  If not, what should I do to get you more info?

I played the other two Contest missions (Down and Out on Newford Road and Hazard Pay) without any difficulty.  (I was spastic trying to install the beta (I tried to load the latest /dev build at first, which didn't work) and because it wouldn't go to other versions from there, I had to delete all of DarkMod, reinstall to 2.09b, and then installed Beta 2.10 V5; after that, I played the other two contest missions without difficulty.)

If the other two missions play, I would try downloading this mission again. Also, make sure that you do not have any modification packages installed ( stealth add-on, flame glare mod, fresnel mod, etc ).

Re-downloading the mission worked.  Thanks, nbohr1more!

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      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:
