View Full Version : How to rebuild original missions from Thief 2

11th Oct 2005, 21:22
I want to rebuild one of the original missions from Thief 2. This mission is Ambush!

I want to add more locations into, but I don't know, if it is possible. Is somewhere only construction of this mission withowt specifics (mission parameters, mission quest data...etc.)? I want to also rebuild mission objectives, but I want to left guards, maybe i remove Garrett's house... Am I able to do this with original mission?

Surely a lot of the mission parameters are okay?
You could change some of the NewSky settings so that, say, the moon has a different shape and the clouds move in another direction.

To clear out the objectives copy the following into a text editor:

and save the file.
Run the file in dromed (type run followed by a space then the filename, plus the extention)

You may have to manually delete what's left over:
Type quest_delete qvarname for each qvar that you don't want.

You'll need the unstripped version of the mission so that all brushes are present. You can get it here:

It may be best to use the Trace the Courier map instead. it has the cemetary, plus Garrett's old apartment is already more or less empty and the windows blocked off.
It would add a nice touch if someone else had now moved in.

Trace the Cuorier is good map, but I am afraid of be not able to remove Sgt. Mosley and the Pagan courier... But I woll try it... Ok...

But you can give me some advices about it... I am sure to need them...

Coincidentally, my upcoming mission Broad Daylight uses Ambush! as its base. So yes, it's quite possible.
