I found the entrance, but not the means.
Meh 3/10, horrible scale, long empty corridors to trudge through; the mission shows some potential and some places within the manor itself are actually nice, but it's really dragged down by the long and uninteresting corridors as well as some keyhunt elements
Garrett plans to rob a nobleman of everything's he's got. Things take a weird turn when an innocuous-looking horn takes him to Somewhere Else. Hilarity Ensues.
After recently recommending it to an aspiring taffer I felt like having a go at it myself. It is Awesome. It is Smooth. It is Gold. It Sings to Me. It has Taffing, it has Style, it has Humor. Though some may disagree, I'm henceforth gonna rank it as one of the best Thief FMs ever made.
A perfect 10/10? Perhaps. Not sure yet, but it has a better chance of it than many others.
I'm starting to think nicked is the best DromEd'er out there... at this point in time, at least. He's skilled, he's versatile, he's not afraid to experiment. Not all of his FMs are worth playing IMO, but they all sport high production value and often have strong themes and consistencies about them. In a way, he Dares to Be Stupid.
With thanks to JarlFrank for his work, here's the end-of-year Taffing report:
(For those thinking this is Decline, keep in mind that the rise of fall of things is inevitable, and we're looking at 20+ years of work here. That is amazing no matter how you look at it.)
But this reminds me that it's time to pick T1/T2FM of the year for me, and this year the pick was obvious: "Alcazar," with "Whispers Below the Cobblestone" and "Katharsis" being the runner-ups, though I'll say that this year's 'crop' was excellent overall.
You're a bit quiet in the only video that's there, mate. Also increase the brightness a bit, stream moar and store the vids pls, this looks like something I'd put up on my second monitor when working.If anyone cares I've been streaming me playing Thief FMs on twitch to what I can only assume to be 0 viewers
If the way I have initially posed the question is somehow offensive (I wasn't in any way intending it to be) how about this: if there was a Night Dive remaster of some sort (ND guys tweeted that they'd love to do it but to me it doesn't look like Square presently cares for any Eidos IP that isn't TR) could the increased interest in Thief 1 and 2 lead to influx of new authors, maybe return of some old ones, in any case increase in number of new FMs?Revive?
It is not dead.New fm's come regularly and that is even for stuff like dark mod which is somewhat niche among the thief community.
Unfortunately Thief is extremely fucking dark on streams even on max brightness in-game (something to do with steam compression of the color black I'd guess). I'm not sure what the best way to go about fixing it is but the image on stream never seems to match what I'm seeing. I could put it up to max brightness but then I'm actively harming my experience while playing for only a minor benefit to anyone who happens to watch the vod. I do have vods saving now, there was a couple of FM streams before the one that is sitting on my twitch page there that didn't get saved.You're a bit quiet in the only video that's there, mate.

Fellow taffers I need your help! First I'm in a dire need for missions where Garret has to explore forgotten catacombs, ancient ruins, mines basically everything underground/hounted etc. Second I need a name of one fan-mission. It was set in mansion where everyone prepering for funeral of the owner and ghost of said owner tasked Garret with finding who murdered him and with protecting his kids. I remember that mansion despite being huge didn't filled empty or filled with filler.
Cryptic Realms for T2 would be right up your alley. It's easily my favourite as far as that particular theme goes. For TG, The Tomb of St. Tennor.I'm in a dire need for missions where Garret has to explore forgotten catacombs, ancient ruins, mines basically everything underground/hounted etc.
