Hi DeTeEff

Thanks for commenting, I suspected this to be a bug .  It's funny and weird. 

You mean at mission start I need to lock my home door ?

Do you think a fix is possible ? 

Very good mission. When I started to play it, I thought this is below average quality and gameplay, but man , this changed very quickly when I reached the pub scene and started to follow Clerwick.

The Roughboys' hideout and the perimeter is very cool. I do not like the horror part of the story , but apart from that 5 out of 5 stars.

Awesome work. 

Glad you like it!

The script resets a lot of stuff in the city (respawning downed guards and adding extra guards if you've downed a lot, depending on difficulty). The trigger box that fires the script is located by those stairs in the service tunnels/sewer area. 

Regarding the home door 

Spoiler

You don't have to lock it, it's just a funny little easter egg I added, that occurs if you don't lock it. 

Regarding the horror elements

Spoiler

There are no more than some gruesome details in some readables and despicable behaviour by some people (torturing women, displaying them in their bedroom etc.) But there's no supernatural elements or something like that.

To rip out the golden teeth from the head in the corner. Speaking of horror/creepy elements... 

 

Spoiler

Yeah, thanks. I managed to find out before your answer. I thought the tongs is meant to disable the alarms, so I 've been searching on the wrong spots first.😁

BTW . Is it possible to disable the alarm mechanism on the porcullis system ?

No, but if you take out the guard, noone will notice the blaring. Very good idea though, with the tongs disabling the alarm :)

I guess you don't mean "easter egg" as a segfault in the linux binary , do you 😁 ?

Love the linear, long progression of the mission. Very smart and good use of light through the level. The crowded places proved to be somewhat of a challenge. Mostly it's about navigating certain areas and getting through scripted scenes. Especially where the entrance to the Pub where Clerwick is. But subtitles usually help to understand that we're supposed to wait.

Clerwick wasn't exactly sipping wine neither unlike the drunk near him :)

Wanted to report an instance where I was stuck in one of the poor slum tenants rooms with cluttered items. I was lured by shiny gold plate of loot but got stuck on the broken bed. Can this be fixed? Screenshots:

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Glad you like the mission! :) Damn, I thought I hade managed to rid those sticky places. Well, well, when you're building irregular stuff one's bound to get stuck, even though I added collision meshes to try to remedy that. I found another sticky place on a roof when I streamed the mission the other day btw... Just have to noclip out of it...

The fog is great,  much better as in the first beta and adds significantly to the mission's mood, congratulations!

Great idea:

Watering can attached to an AI hand

I have never seen that before, oh and

your hanged man moves correctly with the rope.

Can you teach me how to do that with skeletons or bodies trapped in cages?

Glad you like it! I don't think I ever changed the fog from the first beta though 

The hanged man is an unique entity def thing. I downloaded the necessary files from the forums. Sotha was (at least) one of the creators. Bottom line, it's not an ordinary rag doll with a rope attached. I don't know how to create a gibbet though...

Here is the package.

Well, I tried to search for the cause of the hyper-alertness, thinking that it might be due to some strange sound in the official release of the engine itself, and I didn't find anything unusual in "tdm_propagated_sounds.def". Have you yourself tampered with values such as "vol", "alert_factor" and "alert_max"? Have you used capitals in your "inherit" values? (These need to be all lowercase in "inherit"-values.) Have you made sure that entities like the Roughboys AI, are properly inheriting their values?

...or maybe it has got nothing to do with the sounds, and it's actually the vision, like with the fog entity, in which case I don't have any experience in that to offer, but you could still look for "alert_factor" properties, and such.

Good luck.

I just finished this FM last night, and it was a ton of fun! I absolutely loved your city design and city atmosphere. It's nice that you took a step away from TDM's tried and true "doom and gloom" aesthetic and made a really vibrant city. It was a wonderful combo of original brushwork and modules, I really loved it. Great work!

Glad you liked it and also glad you could enjoy it without annoying bugs it seems :D

Had a bit of Thief meets Time Crisis vibe to it earlier which was interesting. Loved the new accents the most. Nice change from the usual old voices they keep rehashing.

That accent is from a very talented actor. Had to fly him in, via helicopter, from some far away country. He wasn't cheap to hire. And he requested a Tobleronebar as payment.

Lol...guessing he didn't recently drop 62k at an Indian restaurant...

Don't think I've played a TDM mission with such a lively, lived-in, squalid (that's a compliment) city.

Glad you liked it! I tried to create a city with lots of different styles as you progress through the level, from slums to posh mansions.

I liked this.  It was surprisingly large and complex and there's probably a lot I've missed while following my target.  Mercifully I didn't encounter the segfault problem other people were seeing on this mission, though that happened quite a lot with "Adventures of Thomas" which I played afterwards.

Thanks for providing so many mines as well, I spent far too much time setting traps for the courier.  Turns out six mines is not only enough to blow the corrupt official to pulp, but it can also blast you clean off the balcony into the bargain.

Regarding exploration:

After you have infiltrated the hideout and collected your necessary data, you may leave and explore the city at your leisure.

      Deathloop – what a mess of a game. I'd love to see a post-mortem on it some day. I hope Arkane is doing okay though.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)
