    Updated Mission: What Lies Below [NewDark, Full Colour!] - Oct 29, 2014

    Halloween seemed like the right time to update my 2006 Water Contest mission What Lies Below to take advantage of NewDark's capabilities, so here it is. It requires NewDark v1.22 or later, so be sure to update if you haven't already. This should be compatible with the Thief 2 EP, but it won't have much effect as most objects are custom. It has not been tested with any other enhancement/upgrade packs, so I would strongly advise you to disable them before playing to avoid issues. Again, most everything is custom in this mission so it really won't be of any benefit to enable them, and might cause issues.

    Summary of changes:
    • FULL COLOUR! No more mostly greyscale
    • A few original bugs fixed
    • Most textures and objects upgraded to newer, hi res versions
    • Darkened ambient light and added fog
    • Changed ambients
    • Added Hammer voices from T1 and T3 for variety
    • Modded and upgraded AI skins
    • Reworked cutscene a little


    Thanks to NamelessVoice, PinkDot, Purgator, R Soul, and Vigil for resources used in the upgrade.

    Thanks to Pär Boström for his amazing ambient music, which was used to replace the T3 ambients from the original.

    Thanks to Tannar, Nightwalker and Random_Taffer for testing.

    Thanks, Yandros. I certainly enjoyed the original. I'll have to give this one a try, too.

    If any of you haven't played this, go get it!
