    Thief Reloaded Contest FM: Snowball Fight! by Yandros (Feb 5 2011)

    The main contest thread with download links is here.
    Please post comments and questions about this mission specifically in this thread.

    Please note that this was not intended to be a serious mission - there is no story, just pure gameplay and a little humor (if you can find it). If it becomes one of those missions you turn to every now and then for fun and to blow off a little steam, then I consider it a success. I certainly don't expect it to win any votes in the contest, and that was never my hope; I just saw this contest as an opportunity to realize this little idea of mine, and also take a break from other mission work.

    I'll go ahead and post it to make sure everyone understands - you can select more than one opponent. The "free-four-all" style (choosing all four opponents) is quite challenging. Also, feel free to post your scores and hit percentages here.

    Fun! 96%.
    Afterwards I used the body-drop technique to go down to the streets for a stroll, but no easter eggs there. Gotta look harder. Edit: Found it!.

    I never imagined I time when I'd yell 'take that to the face Goldilocks, you dumb robot!'

    The ape and the robot are in cahoots, they just stand towards each other firing and building their scores up.

    ganac, it's not on the rooftops (hint 1) and not in the streets either (hint 2), so that leaves the starting room (outright spoiler).

    Great fun! I did a War with all 4 and made my 100th hit while Goldilocks was at 99.
    The area works perfectly. An improvement I could think of (but it might not work) is to have them teleported once every minute or so, just so that if they spawned right next to each other in the beginning, you won't get those situations where two just keep throwing at each other.

    Nope, still nothing. I expect to edit this shortly.

    And yep, there I go.

    Actually, you're frobbing a button on top of the light. If you jump up you can see it.

    I think i found a major bug in which you can "cheat"

    -Gather 100 snowballs for war, or whatever number required to win
    -position urself so whoever youre fight is below you (so you can be on the ledge, and hes at the bottom
    -continuously drop snowballs on top of him
    -enjoy getting 90+ hit percentage and hitting at a rate of 3 snowballs /sec

    I don't think that's a "bug" nor "cheating" really. You're free to play pretty much any way you want to. There are several other ways to avoid getting hit while pelting the others.

    Yes, but then, some of them have an "unfair" advantage by being able to throw more than one snowball at a time so I wouldn't feel too bad about it.

    I thought it was kind of fun to stay in the open and see if I could avoid getting hit just by dodging them.
