Title : St Edgar's Cathedral

Description : Thief 2 Fan Mission

Story : Last night I went to the docks for a beer. As I approached strangers I heard them talk about St Edgar's, the old Hammerite cathedral, the first one that old , For years it was considered as a legend, Is it possible that St Edgar's really exists here?...From the speeches of these old thieves I've found that in the old quarter, beyond an old wall, is an area not yet explored. A flooded area where from an angle you can see the old watch tower that leads to the Baron's Castle; an abandoned castle.
Someone told me that near the port over that wall, there is the old abandoned cathedral of St Edgar's, an Hero of the order.After some time there is a new order called "The Black Hammerites", which are fanatics and they killed most of the old Hammerites...This order have more stringent rules and was created by the Baron.
A secret cathedral that was only known by a few prescribed hammerites chosen by the Baron and no others.The nobles have their own churches, castles and cathedrals... The question is : why the baron has sent his men to defend an abandoned castle? Even thieves have tried to enter to take a share of the spoils.
This old abandoned Cathedral, which for years has been considered as a legend, really exists...The Baron sent the Black Hammerites to that place, a group of chosen warriors, fanatics , the best of Hammerites... Indeed!
From the old thieves, I learned that there are probably ways to access the subterranean cathedral.The pipes of water have flooded, turning the whole area into a network of underground rivers.
I do not trust these people, The ancient castle that the Baron kept secret ... Which was his last home before moving ..The Baron, this castle was held as his summer home and used it to garden and go for walks in the garden
Interesting ,the nobles can afford many things! I want to take a look.

Have a nice day :)

I've been playing your mission for the past 45 minutes, and I've been enjoying it so far. It seems evident that "Grandiose" is the only word you know when it comes to building. =P

I did notice significant slowdowns on my machine, which is only a few years old, which really surprised me. I poked around in DromEd a bit, and noticed that your mission isn't Optimized, and attempting to do so crashes DromEd. Optimizing is the process through which the terrain polys and cells are merged and so reduces their number. The result looks identical to draft portalization, but it should run better.

LGS Released an Optimization Guide which can be downloaded here: http://www.thiefmissions.com/telliamed/

Since Optimization fails right now (Which is very bad =P ) I recommend you try aligning a lot of your brushwork and set the grid scale to 12 (I noticed it was set to 10, which is insane for thief). If you get an "optimization failed" message, restart dromed before attempting to optimize again. Also, The "show_stats" and "show_cells" commands are helpful to see places that could stand to be adjusted. Hope this helps! =)

Thank you for this mission. Looks amazing. :)
But I think I'll wait playing any futher, until it has been optimized. It's lacking a lot on my PC. :(
There's a lot of small failures in the textures.
And the most obvious reson for taking a break. I'm stuck. :mad2:
What to do in the pasage with 4 hammers? No key found for the two doors there.

16th Jan 2014, 20:32
i'm working on

but the mission is compeltely playable and winnable ,
take in mind i'm using Textures HD , and many ofthem are at 1024
i've used Skyrim then try to use low resolution , 1600 or 1300
if you want a better graphic...you have make an effort :)

you are free to discuss the mission on your forum and suggest spoilers , of course!

anyway , where are you stuck ?

16th Jan 2014, 21:39
OK, so after I get in,

I swim from the shaft you drop down to a flooded room that contains a readable on a chair talking about "there might be a secret in this castle". There's a passage through the water with a locked door on the other side of where I entered, and I haven't found a key to enter yet.

17th Jan 2014, 08:45

its so hard give spolier from here :)

about hosting :

I want to keep an eye on the download counter. if irelease the mission at different sites, I can not know exactly how many people Has downloaded the mission .. so I can not know if it's a waste of time to make another. :)

nothing personal brethren
thanks for your offert

17th Jan 2014, 15:12
ok we can proceed safely from here , finally :)

I'm stuck... and banging head! After finally finding way out of courtyard... I have used 2 keys lifted from courtyard guards and got into the room off courtyard (with locked door inside and bizarre "dies suddenly for no reason" spot near the fireplace). Now, there's a locked gate on bell tower and two more locked doors (one is the dining room) by the thieves. How to progress? Hint please! Thanks.

check the bed for a switch

This thing runs really slow on a computer I just built 2 months ago. I can't imagine how slow it is for people with older computers.

17th Jan 2014, 15:19
don't run it :)

People have given you constructive criticism with no intent of malice towards you. You would be wise to consider why and follow their advice.

Also...a little more modesty would do you credit.

As for mirrors, it is customary to want your mission hosted at a location that has a good reputation with the Thief community. File sharing sites are notorious for being at best a minor hassle to use. Places like southquarter and thief missions are a known entity and trusted. You will find more people willing to try your mission if they can find it there.

17th Jan 2014, 16:17
And at thiefmissions.com, you can view a counter to see how many times your mission has been downloaded.

And Sly is right, don't take all the criticism so personally. Thief fans are usually good people who are only trying to help. I know you believe your missions are superior, but no one is perfect and every author has areas where they can improve.

anyway i tried to optimize everything using area brush
i managed to optimize all , execept for a little zone , in the clocktower area , in the middle of the clocktower ,seem a bad brush there , hard to find.

any comment on the Outstanding Grapichs ?

23rd Jan 2014, 21:25
I talked about the FM you made, It`s good, But you should spent some time around some details...But i understand you are very lightly "touched".
I missed some important information witch should make it more "playable".
But as you say, "try to build wat i build in 5 months"?. Credits to you, But i don`t build FM`s. I just play them.

23rd Jan 2014, 22:03
