    NW and I tested this, and it's a really, really fun Mechanist mission. Very cool objects and textures give it a futuristic feel.

    I went through it making lots of screenshots a day or two ago to post with the announcement, but found after exiting Dromed that I had been using the wrong key, so had none. (I recently uninstalled DDFix from the Thief folder I play FMs from.) Knowing clearing, though, there will be some available shortly.

    There's even an homage of sorts to sterlino in this mission...

    The original Rapidshare link is dead so everyone should use the southquarter link to snag this one.

    Absolutely amazing FM! Very big, but logical. I really like how everything connects together, inside and outside. The new objects are great. Being a woodworker, I liked the bandsaw.
    However, I can't end the mission as I can't find enough loot. I'm playing on Hard difficulty and only have 690 out of 750 needed. Is there a loot list or can someone give me hints as to any well hidden areas? Thanks

    Great looking mission! Not quite finished yet but I'm definitely enjoying it.

    None of the loot is very well hidden but the place is quite large so it's easy to miss a room. I've got all but one piece of loot accounted for. It was added just before release and I've yet to find it. I have a loot list for the rest though.

    There are 3 purses in total. Two worn by patrolling guards and one on a Mechanist that's standing in a short hallway overlooking the front gates. He's easy to miss. The door into that hallway is very close to the Chapel entrance.

    There are a couple of coins on a desk in a storage room on the upper level, a couple of plates in the sink in the kitchen.

    There's a large amount of loot in two bedrooms on the top level.

    A statue in a chest on the lowest level, in the storage room full of water barrels.

    There are 2 gold candlesticks and 4 statues in the Chapel.


    That's most of it, I think but if you want the loot list, just email me. Hopefully, I'll soon have found my missing gold wine bottle. It's supposed to be in a control room with hi-tech screens on the first level but I can't see it anywhere. If anybody finds it, can you PM me with explicit directions since I seem to be blind?

    @ Nightwalker

    spoiler:
    The mysterious gold wine bottle is in this room on easy - I apparently captured it in a screenshot

    Thank you! How I missed that one is beyond me. The loot is the same on all difficulty settings by the way.

    Good to know

    After playing a few recent missions from Asylum I can never be sure - and its made me paranoid about stating which difficulty I was playing on.

    I have found all the loot but; there is a door with a combination thingy next to it. I can't seem to find a clue to enter the numbers to enter into the room beyond. Is this room where the evidence objective(Expert) is Nice mission

    Very "cool" mission. Finished with all the loot in one hour 17 minutes. The only thing is I wanted to see some Ice Beasts.

    This was fun to play. Reminded me of being on a submarine.
    Played on expert: 1 hr 45 min. Missed $120 in loot. I was also expecting to run into the ice monsters.
    Thank you I.T.

    Great mission

    I loved this mission, it has an outstanding sci-fi enviroment, the new objects are very good and realistic, the gameplay is captivating, the storyline is good, the design is great, some parts of this mechanist base remind me the mission "deep Trouble" , overall a mission worth to be replayed many times

    Thanks for this one Indepent Thief
    Looking foward for more
