Do you like snow?

    Smile Do you like snow?

    I have started a new fanmission. It's funny, in Germany we have summer and it is hot, but I'm only thinking of snow.....

    Great Screenies!

    I love snowy missions, the last I played (Old Comrads, Old Debts), had gained much atmosphere from snowing in a yard.
    Snowy missions are also: Croms Blade, Calendra's Legacy, beginning of 7th Crystal ...

    And I hope we will soon see Winter Harvest (by MaJiC)!

    Snowy is great, because it was little used from the original missions and fits very well to the "dark" atmosphere of the Thief Series. And rain (esp. with thunder) is a complete different feeling ("Rocky Horror Show Feeling"), more sutable for an undead mission...
    Also very sunny missions (like Stowawy or TTGM: Up Creek) give an intersting atmoshere.

    Keep only in mind, the wather effects should fit to your mission.

    I have some panoshots of Snow from "The 7th Crystal". Click on Thief II Fan Missions and scroll down to "The 7th Crystal" and the panoshots of the Entrance and Yards.

    It looks terrific, Christine! I'm SOOOOO glad you decided to start another mission. I like snowy missions, but then I like pretty much all missions, now don't I?

    I've never taffed in the snow but it is a beautiful screenshot - I presume that Garrett would leave tell-tale snowprints? I look forward to the challenge.

    Cool

    Ooh...Sexy screenies...More please.

    Yes those certainly are nice looking screenshots Christine. I have a tendency to go all gummie inside when I spy ones filled with nice little gable ends. I'm working on a snowy town mission myself, but instead of going for a snug nighttime mission with lots of warm looking households, I've opted for a stark daytime look with a mininal palette. I spent the best part of a Sunday trying to decide which style I wanted, but it looks like I'll be able to have my cake and eat it.

    Is this FM going to be part of your series? I've only played the first two so far so I might need to get my skates on if you carry on banging out missions at your current rate!

    Yes, please, snow is so atmospheric.
    I'm so glad you're making another FM, - I really loved the last ones.

    Thank you all, I'm glad that you like it.
    This mission is not part of my series, I'm making it for the Night Falcon Campaign (german Teamproject). It's my second mission for this project.
    Hmm.... I like the idea with the snowprints for Garrett, as far as I know it's not possible in Dromed, but it would look cool

    That's very fine Christine...to see a little update of Falcon :-)

    Yes, weather effects are really nice to experience as you go through different missions...and I especially liked the rain/thunder found in "Raid on Washout Cental" as well as all the snow type levels that have been made Keep up the good work Chris and will be still waiting around to experience this coop your assisting with Ta and Good Hunting!
    It's not how you win the game, it's how you PLAY it! Have FUN!
