    T2 FM: "The Perfect Job" 18 Feb 2012

    Hi! I got into Thief after watching the awesome lets plays by Lytha. I was really sad that she didn't seem to like Thief 2 much. I wanted to make her a nice mission that was wasn't too long and was easy to ghost and didn't have lots of tricks or other stuff to confuse her and wouldn't make it too hard for her to win.

    She got really mad at Thief 2 because of how big and hard it was. This should be perfect for her!

    Enjoy my first Thief 2 mission!

    The Perfect Job

    It's all ready to work in Darkloader and has cool custom content.

    Hope everyone likes it!

    All of my thoughts in order while playing it:

    a) No equipment? Nothing? Buggy?

    b) Yeah, get that letter. Somebody secretely in love with Lytha?

    c) Classic Thief city mission?

    d) Beautiful & well made first room, wonder what comes next?

    e) So much loot? That was quick ... well ... really buggy? I've seen worse...

    f) I can hear guards - are they after me (so that I'll lose the loot and the real mission starts)?

    g) Pavement isn't critical - should be able to ghost it easily!

    h) Wow. That REALLY was quick! Mini campaign?

    i) Ahh naw!!!

    I hate to nitpick with such a nearly perfect first mission, but ... your pickpocket count in the stats is off by one.

    If you edit_links in a T2 FM (I've looked at 8 FMs) the first one is usually bowman (-547) Contains QuivArrow (-121) Alternate. Delete this link and total picks reduce by one to the correct value - the FM does not seem to be affected.

    It seems that a pick is counted for links when AI Contains Belt for both T1 & T2, plus AI Contains Alternate for T2 only (in T2 this includes all types of archer). It doesn't matter if the object is frobbable or not!

    If you are out by more than 1, it may be something like a zombie wearing a bone on his belt. Make the object frobbable - Engine Features/FrobInfo: Move; Move (or Delete) - and it will count towards the player's total when he frobs it.

    I suggest R Soul's approach for your situation. Well done!

    Ohhh...i was expecting more of this mission, it was so brief, i wanted to explore the outside city
    Well at least you shows us how to build well a corridor and a few outside buildings, now is time for you to bring us a larger mission. nice 80s track at the end, i always loved pop music from the 80s, heres one of my favourite 80s musics:

    LOL! I have heard of a short mission, but that was crazy! And the video in the end? I didn't know it was the 80s again, but I DO love hearing that song.

    I kept watching the video waiting for something to happen!

    But seriously, Thief 2 was HARD for someone? I have never heard of that! Not unless this is just a small child we are talking about?

    A lot of players complain the original missions were too easy!

    I'm not sure I'll get over the shock of finding out he uninstalled Thief in the first place.

    Oh that was easy. New computer, Windows 7 instead of Windows XP. You know I'd never uninstall it myself.

    That's a relief! You had me worried there for a minute.
