    But here, the title of the thread is significant so, if i have understand it, believe me, everyone can
    There's also no doubt about passion Hawkflyaway put in his work... How can you make this big and incredible work (yes, i know, stupid compliments ) without passion?
    Thank you for all the time you spend on this amazing project
    and sorry for my english
    No need to apologise for your Engllish.
    The majority here respect the fact that others can communicate in English as well as their mother-tongue.
    Look at me. I only know English and a little French... and absolutely no Welsh; even though I live in Wales.

    Well, good to hear your passion is strong. I'll be looking forward to the final build of this conversion, then. Cool beans.

    Being an adept reader of a language does not necessarily make one good at sentence construction and colloquialism, especially if those are rooted in a completely different language. That said, I don't think anyone is really criticizing your communication, just stating the most likely explanation for why you have so many views and so little input. The topic is clearly of interest to a lot of people, but replying is hard with poor understanding of what is said. That is just the way it is. And hell, if the thread is really just about keeping us updated on the project, what do you care if there are few replies?

    I chose this handle because I used to be active in the Thief community back in the day, specifically over at TTLG. But I grew disgusted at its poster culture, and frankly, after several playthroughs and playstyles, my appetite for the series dwindled. So I left that part of my life behind. But with NuThief on the horizon, I returned to lurk over there, and eventually had gathered enough opinions on NuThief that I wanted to express them somewhere. But the forum was as much of a cesspool as it had been when I left it, so I chose the middle ground of expressing myself here. I had returned, in a sense.

    what is strange, i know almost all english poets as William Shackspeare , James Joyce (an ermetic one)
    and others of other country ! like William Blacke ,Oscar Wilde, you have no idea how long this list can be.i don't saying that english people is cultural ,absolutely not! ignorance is everywhere! depend on you.
    time ago i had an issue on ttlg about an arch , a guy ignorant as a goat ,called gigagooga! want fight with me about it , the brushes , this guy don't make difference between an arch of 1200 A.C. and and arc of 1800 in viktorian style i gived up..i thouhg , Why should I stay here in the midst of goats? then go away was nice. and I felt light as an eagle! and free as a bird !


    Eidos is not for modders, i know , on the other hand! i can't tollerate some people on ttlg.


    i'm busy lately giving lessons of Architectures at my scholars, pupils! is right pupils ,kids, ..?

    Them are happy because Unreal 4 is out!

    have you played Thief 1 ? this is my opinion should be The Cathedral , if Thief 1 was made today , and this is mine !

    well
    i like england..except for the fog...expecially some kind of towers, gothic architectures is fantastic... i remade the Thief 4 clocktower before...Thief 4 was released!

    But I have gathered you want to convert T1 maps into T3, which is cool.
    yes , just that...lighting ,sounds , texturing , and everything else is made from the scratch , the athmosphere also! ok only the geometry is the same!

    after this
    in your opinion should i use the old Brushes about the archs ? we are talking about a game made in 1998

    This thread was going really well up until the point people started to inject complaints and personal comments into the discussion.
    I would suggest we start afresh, taffers, and get back on topic.

    Hawky... do you have enough people to playtest now?



    EDIT/UPDATE
    All the off-topic bickering has now been deleted

    It is actually possible to convert the Thief 1 and 2 map formats to unreal. I can't recall exactly how it was done, but someone did do it a few years ago. It still require a lot of work in rebuilding and retexturing though.

    I don't remember implying I would help, dude. I have no modding skills, so I have no reason to imply such. What I said was that I looked forward to the finished project. Someone who can read Dante perfectly should have been able to gather that much.

    As for the personal commentary, I know how to take Viktoria's hint.

    Wow. That is possible? Amazing.
