FM Release: Sneak and Soufflé - April Fools mission (01.04.2024)

What is going on here?

Spoiler

This thing has an actual FM folder structure. Is this a reverse April fools prank? Real mission pretending to be a prank?

Gotta check this out when I get off of my work shift today...

I have a special item I'm sure is needed for a certain secret, but I can't figure out how to use it

The early bird gets the worm. 
 

 But the second mouse gets the cheese!

yes, I can see what I need to do but can't accomplish it. I can't drop the item from inventory, it can't be used on plates or anything in the area...

updated to 2.12 and got it to work. might have also been user error

Select the cheese in your inv and then frob the hole where the mouse is hiding (it will frob highlight), no need to drop it.

I wrote earlier that I owe this masterpiece a review, so... Here is my detailed review of this groundbreaking and seminal Mission Fan.

The thing that I love about this review is 

Spoiler

that it takes as long to read as it does to play the actual mission :D

It seems to be ai generated if I'm not mistaking. Sometimes the people have six fingers, sometimes the eyes are strange, sometimes the text is gibberish. But if it is done well I guess it's a comfortable way to enhance your mission intros.

Very nice little mission BTW I really enjoyed it! Loved the rat secret.

Well, it looks very good!
I tried generating some textures with AI, and it look quite good but the free model(s) lost the option to generate images and I'm too cheap to pay for it : P

Yeah it's not an easy to go option, more like an inspiration. There's always lots of artifacts and inconsistencies which take so much time to fix that it is nearly the same time to create images as painting them by yourself if you have an eye for detail.

I tried it for creating textures too and it worked pretty well (I think it was dalle 2 back in the day last year). Most difficult part was making it seamless. I think the time it took for rerolling prompts was nearly the same as searching for stock textures though. But the results were as least as good as stock textures. A thing I couldn't say about artwork. There's no coherent style or consistent features for story actors. I would say you didn't miss anything of value. We'll see what the future holds.

I agree; a very tasty little morsel of a mission.

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
