Thread: T2 Vertical Contest FM: "Lady Mossy" (16th Sep. 2009)

    I got into the house by stacking crates and bashing in the lower window to the right with my blackjack and grabbing the house key from the window sill. I did have to lure out the guard with the key by bashing on his door to get enough crates though.

    I play this VC mission first. My initial reaction is: more than disappointed. Unaligned textures, buggy doors, misplaced AIs, extreme difficulty.

    I finished it, though I don't feel very accomplished. this one needed more time and some betatesting.
    points deducted for:
    initial key confusion (tons of doors with no direction or way to open them)
    multiple long drops (more than one rope arrow would have lessened this)
    fog brushes misaligned
    in the hotel (or whatever it is?): constant mission failure in the past

    I would have to agree for the most part but there is a way to do it with only one long drop and still retrieving the rope arrow. I played on expert and only lost one hit point for that one drop. As for the past, I failed too until I actually read the new objective you get there.

    You can prevent yourself from taking damage on the long drops by stacking up crates and climbing on them before attaching to the rope arrow. Then, when you drop your fall will be cushioned by the crates.

    I think this could have been a mission by a new author, with the added pressure of deadlines I wouldn't be too hard on them. Out of the three it was the only one that wasn't beta tested with the forum, so I'm guessing it wasn't tested at all. I hope that the author will take on [positive] feedback from their mission and revisit it, without any deadlines, and get it tested well.

    And there are positive things to say about Lady Mossy, especially if the author is new.

    What I liked :
    • The tree and pagan overtones
    • The time travel (verticality in time ?)
    • Straightforward story
    • Overall concept and basic design already solid

    What I didn't like :
    • The whole door/key mess
    • Broken AI
    • Only one way to escape the warehouse is not very realistic, especially if the way out was already the way in. Not enough spots for the rope arrow
    • Vines on the façade of Lady Mossy's mansion are a nice touch, but they are also easily seen as a subtle hint that the façade should be climbed to the top

    so I uninstalled, went back to OM, runs fine. reinstalled City conflict part 3, no issues there.

    is my download of this fm corrupt?
    I had the same problem. Why is it that a few FM's do not work with Garrettloader while the majority do?

    So I'm stuck at the beginning. I've gotten out of the building at the start, but now what? I'm on the streets with only one rope arrow, but I haven't found anywhere to climb up. What can I do?

    You can rope up to the windows of the building with the blue lights on the porch.

  13. #63
    Ok, I've got the key from the window, but it doesn't work on any of the doors.

    It works on another of those windows where you will get another key.

    Yes, because those parents shouldn't worry about the young'ins shooting an arrow through a guard's head.

    2nd window / picking

    I found 2 shutters that light up & I read somewhere I could pick the 2nd one, but that's a no go, besides how am I supposed to get into that thin window frame?

    If I recall correctly, it is the top window on one side of the large house with the blue light in front. You don't actually get inside that way but there is a key you can reach through the window.
