    Where can I find the latest and most updated published FMs list?

    Does someone know where is it possible to find a complete and updated (2017.04) FMs list (all official Thief games)?

    I found those but I'm not sure:
    - http://www.ttlg.de/de/download/navig...m-download.php
    - http://www.gnartsch.de/Thief-FM/Thief_updates.shtml
    - http://thiefmissions.com/search.cgi?...sort=release#m
    - http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=144797
    - http://darkfate.org/view/details/files/fan-missions/

    Could I supposedly cross FMs datas from ThiefMissions.com and Gnartsch's portal last updated FMs?

    I'm thinking about creating a huge JSON database in order to work on a modern web based useful project for our great Thief community

    I dare to claim that
    http://thiefmissions.com/search.cgi?...sort=release#m
    plus all the updates/additions on
    http://www.gnartsch.de/Thief-FM/Thief_updates.shtml

    gives you a 99.5 % accurate complete list since the very first FMs got released,
    as I had painstakingly compared a bunch of the other sites when looking for anything that might have not made it to thiefmissions.com in the first place.
    And I keep the Thief_updates updated whenever anything new comes out.
    I doubt you will find anything more complete, since all the sites have quite a few gaps - or missed some updates.

    I keep a list of all recent FMs on my site (http://www.southquarter.com/fms). Between that and thiefmissions (which stopped updating back in 2013), you should be covered.

    There's also Taffer's Paradise, which hasn't been mentioned yet. It's usually mostly up to date - http://www.taffersparadise.co.uk/

    FYI thiefmissions didn't top updating in 2013, he just doesn't proactively add every mission that gets released, but he does add missions if you ask him to.

    Yeah, I just meant regular or routine updates. He'll still host anything Thief related by special request I'm sure.

    If i had a few number of missions i would ask him to update them in his site, but i don't dare to show him a huge list of missions that i would like him to host and update in his site Thiefmissions.com

    Thanks everybody. Your posts are really useful. I can continue my project now. I'll give you more details this next week.

    A small teaser... it's not the definitive one

    I'll give more details in a proper thread when I'll estimate I can release it to public.

    Looks nice! Looks like you're using Bootstrap?

    Yes, you're right. I'm building an Angular 4 web app including Bootstrap 4 and using the data from a public JSON database which has to be created/updated from scratch in order to include each existing FMs. This is why I asked for the most complete and updated existing database in this thread.

    In a first attempt, I'd like to offer to our community the most complete, visually minimalistic, detailed but simple to use and modern web application dedicated to the Thief Fan Missions.

    The main idea is having a modular platform which can be accessed from a desktop computer (browser) and a smartphone (responsive design) with the most complete database of the exisring Thief Fan Missions: it should includes basic informations as name, author, version, release and last update date, and then more detailled ones as the category, related contest, description, youtube walkthroughs, loots list, screenshots, rating, a list of custom resources included, ZIP size, download links, if it's Newdark and what's the min required version... etc.

    I'm not sure about the current look and feel. Maybe I should design a dark aspect in relation to the Thief universe. I like the current white aspect but it looks like too much Bootstrap.

    The other idea is to build a public database in JSON which can be used by every developers if he needs to have more details and he needs to use it in his own applications.

    Maybe in the future, I'll create a desktop app as the NewDarkLoader (or maybe work with the creator) based on this project which can retrieve an updated list of available Fan Missions from the same JSON database and then offer to the app user to automatically download and install the FMs in his computer.

    is it a site where we can host our missions like Thief object repository?

    Awesome, I'm a big fan of both Angular and JSON. I look forward to seeing the site develop and go live. I think what Cardia is asking is, will authors be able to upload their missions to the site themselves, like we do with objects at the Thief Object Repository?

    Unfortunately, I don't have enough money to buy a decent hosting in order to host more than 50GB of FMs. So, in a first step, when I'll publish the first release of the platform, I probably use the existing download websites (ThiefMissions, SouthQuarter) as mirrors for each of the Fan Missions.

    I'll wait for the feedbacks from the community and maybe see, in few months and if the project is a success, to rent a space to host the FMs. Obviously, FMs creators will have the possibility to submit their own FMs.

    @Yandros If you want and if you like this project, we can work together. I pushed it on GitHub.

    Another preview. Live search on typing something and a new design inspired by the original ThiefMissions.com website.
