View Full Version : The editor

23rd Feb 2006, 19:56
I'm about to buy the Thief games. Does the Dark Editor come with the game or do I have to download it somewhere?

Also, has anyone made any good mods? If so, which one is your favorite?

With Thief: The Dark Project you have to download the editor.
With Thief: Gold (which is T:TDP with a few extra levels) the editor will be on the CD
With Thief2, the editor will be on the CD, but for both the game and the editor, you'll have to download a patch to bring both of them to update them.

Installation is farily simple. It's just a case of extracting from a zip file.

Okay cool. Where do I get these updates? I'm going to buy Thief 1 and Thief 2 as one package deal for like $10.

TTLG is a much more active community, both the FM Forum and the Editing Forum, than here. You can post a question and generally get an answer within minutes or hours, plus there's a very useful Dromed FAQ (http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87962).

As for mods, well mostly what we make are missions, and the best place to find them - there are over 600 of them now! - is http://www.thiefmissions.com.

Crap I'll be playing this game for a looooong time. :)

When I've played the game through a few times, I'll go ahead and make some stellar mods. :D

Wow, I looked at Yandros' website. It's amazing that you can get pretty good graphics, even in an old game.

Which screenies were you looking at? Cause most of my released missions don't look so hot compared to newer missions by other folks, and some of the ones I have in development.

Well I can't wait to try the others' missions then. Thief 2 will be here in the mail today.
