I wonder about the alternative models for the arrows. Have they been used in other missions too already? I really like them, maybe I could extract them to my directory to use them in general for the game?

So these alternative arrow models are courtesy of Kingsal. He made them for his Volta campaign and has allowed myself and other mappers to use them if they want. You can find them in my FMs as well as Goldwell's.

I think in Iris. So probably a custom thing from @Wellingtoncrab. I'm personally not sure about those. If there's no stick somewhere, how can you make an arrow out of it? But it's nice they are smaller so it's more flexible for placement and can be hid better.

These arrow elementals are actually a takeaway from the Thief series, but for mappers they do allow for greater flexibility and creativity in placement.

I don't like pumpkins, but fortunately we were not required to eat any. I ate the mushrooms though! It sounded like the pub goers were having a great time, stomping to the beat of the music - a cool and fitting soundtrack. 
+1 for the Canadian reference🥃

Thanks for playing! Yeah, I was real lucky to find that track on freesounds. It was super fitting and definitely helped tie the whole thing together

Hey maybe you can add the alternative combined lockpick to core? So mappers might more often include it.

 

Thanks for playing!!! And yeah, that is a good idea. I'll look into it and maybe see what can be done

Really nice little mission! Trying to supreme-ghost it was a heap of fun. So much coolness in such a small package.

Thanks so much for playing! I'm glad to hear that you did manage to supreme ghost it; I was worried it might have been too hard, especially on the later difficulties

With just two guys? Not likely, even though one of them is carrying a torch. That said, it wasn't as easy as one might think. Getting the loot under the balcony was the trickiest bit, and took some imaginative leaning to stay shadowed. And being able to escape semi-easily to the alley allows the player to watch and wait for more accommodating patrol timings without pressure, so that was nice.

Out of curiosity, did you manage to supreme ghost it on Frigid difficulty?

Yes. I almost always play on the hardest difficulty.

      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! 💪
