I'm puzzled - there's a crate in the warehouse lift, but it's not empty. It actually has some loot.

 

Interesting.  Probably user error then.  Possibly I grabbed the loot through the chest while trying to open it?  I can reload to an earlier slot from before entering the building and have another look - otherwise it's possible that I wasn't able to highlight it.

Either way, if it's just loot that's less of a concern.  I was more worried it was part of a puzzle I had missed.

 

EDIT: Okay, with the stuff in the chest, I cannot frob the contents in my main savegame, it simply doesn't work.  However, if I wind back to an earlier point from before I entered the building, it will work.  Strange.

I still can't find that key, though.

Sorry, my mistake. There is no key for that grate - you have to throw a switch that's at the guard shack. Sneak up behind him and you can throw the switch over his shoulder - he doesn't notice lol.

What a masterpiece you people have created!!!! Is surely on the very top of the missions I have played so far. The docks area was absolutely lovely, so much that I  hesitated to enter the mansion, even after fulfilling the optional loot goal on expert, as I wanted to keep searching the area for ever. All that crazy mandling all around!!!!! 

And, then, here came the mansion!!!!  ;)

Thank you all for your great work!

I just opened the grate, and I'm facing a gas hazard now. Thought that the pipe might lead somewhere, especially as there is a non-openable grate leading to the cellar of the adjecent building, but, couldn't find anything.

Any way to turn off that gas, or are we just supposed to walk through it and lose health?

Edit: Nevermind. Found out how to do it. ;)

Finished this up yesterday and for the most part, found it enjoyable. :) The puzzles weren't too hard as your clues were good for them. 

Spoiler

This was a huge mission but loved the different sections. Stealth score wasn't the greatest (lost most of it in the sewers) as I had to alert some to get them to run over the mine. lol. Had to check here for the crown location, so thanks for pinpointing it. I didn't find out about the brick in the basement until later (knew there had to be a reason I could go there, just didn't find it) so climbed the beam (and singed my butt lol) getting pass the gas in the tunnel after dying to see if the body was Alan.

I also had trouble spotting the holes in the secret walkway (forgot about the peek action) then couldn't see the combo as I'd already been to Conrad's room and put the candle out. lol - note to self lol

Thanks for lots of arrows for the spiders, some took many, and I was thinking I might have to noclip by them but eventually they died. I didn't put two and two together to light the flame at the end of the cave, so thanks for the hint here. I couldn't take Alan's body back so had to hope the note would suffice for my good deed. I got 4 out of 2 so that was good. 

Thank you for all your hard work and I look forward to more missions from you.

It was a weird mission, that's for sure. And you put a lot of original ideas into it. I appreciate that.

The machines were very convincing. I don't know if you made them or if they're part of the new edition, but they are excellent quality.

The game needs dirty water texture for its canals. And dirty building blocks.

It's very cool that the doors consume the keys.

The floor textures look strange on walls and ceilings.

It took me a little bit more than 9 hours to finish it.

The steam engines are pre-fabs, so no credit for me. I don't know who made them - I agree, they are nice.

Conrad Turner's room.

I am having difficulty with the cupboard and combination lock in one of the apartments. I can't find any books or papers giving any clues.  I watched a walkthrough on youtube but no answers there. Can anyone help ?

Have you found

How do I get out of the

area with the

consulate and the dock? I found a basement hatch that leads under water, but the grate exit at the other end is locked,

and I can't find any other way deeper into the city

There are several ways.

Spoiler

In the water grate that is locked, swim down and look around for a key. Also, there is a mansion near the consolate - getting inside of it provides a path. And there’s a stairway the connects two sides of a building (again, not too far from the consolate), underneath it is a vent that can move you forward.

Thanks, I found a way.

 

So now I'm in the church and I'm perplexed by the

library puzzle on the map. There are no scrolls to be read on the shelves, and moving the ladders around doesn't do anything

Look well, there are several scrolls hidden between the books in both libraries. Every scroll has an encrypted text which is revealed when you found all.

Yeah, I notice that once too. I tried to fix it but obviously I didn't succeed lol

Those kinds of crashes are the hardest kind to debug...

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
