    Water Contest mission - Sneaking Through Venice Sept. 22/06

    I'm suprised nobody commented on this mission yet; I actually quite like this little number. I loved the idea of swimming through Venice, and the mission looked pretty nice to boot. And the music! Too bad it didn't play through the whole mission, I loved it.

    For some strange reason my intuition is telling me that this might be someone's first mission; don't ask me why, but if it is, it's a damn good first effort.

    I like the Venice setting. I''m having trouble finding
    spoiler:
    the switch for the secret door in the wall, first building on the left with two thieves.


    Edit: I figured it out.
    spoiler:
    I could see what was in it, but couldn't get it until the door opened.



    I did experience a crash when picking up certain thieves. Possible no carry body image?

    John,

    spoiler:


    There is a lock beside the gate in the water you fall into near his underground hideout. His key opens that lock and the gate opens. Something you need is behind that gate

    I like this number as well. In fact, the standard of this contest is so high it makes me wonder if I will ever get around to finishing my little mission I started back in the dark ages. Anyway, I digress, but I love the whole concept of sneaking around in Venice. I went to Venice for my holiday this year as well.

    I played it smart, at least I thought I did.
    spoiler:
    Before the floor opened up I rested on the edge just short of the chest, and never fell into the water.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Having trouble with loot on this one, still 170 short on expert. Anyone know of any tricky placements? Is there any loot in the actual canal system itself?

    This level reminded me a lot of Tomb Raider 2's Venice level ... particularly the mechanist on the balcony, and I was half expecting some puzzles from that level to make it here (balcony jumping, maybe some rope arrow opportunities, although maybe there were some and I missed them.)

    Anyway, I can't help but think the author knew about that level and had it a little in mind while building. The whole idea offers great material with great gameplay potential. I'm glad someone thought of it.

    Was there a story about the underwater guy trapped by the gate?

    I'm sure that guy was supposed to be the chappie you see floating away at the start of the FM? Not sure where his hat went to though.

    No the chap at the beginning was the green/white dude (benefit of the doubt). I know because I immediately tried to sink his ship.

    "Was there a story about the underwater guy trapped by the gate?"
    spoiler:
    Yes, in Negreto's apartment.
