    Do we have a working and still updatable database for Thief missions?

    A few years ago I downloaded a torrent with about 30GiB of FMs for Thief2. It was a good time but now it's over.
    It looks like thiefmissions.com is dead long time ago.
    I saw a few similar sites, but they were not only dead but also much less convenient.
    So where one can seek for new missions?

    Download Sites

    Darkfate has everything. I'm not sure if Taffers Paradise has everything yet but it's alive. Southquarter is alive.

    I see. So the problem is we have a very small amount of FMs nowadays. I hoped there are still many missions and it is just sites which are dead.

    Thanks for the information.

    There's more information on sites at the bottom of the 1st post here. I'd forgotten about those details.

    One reason for the general slowdown the last year or so is because of the Thief: The Dark Project 20th Anniversary Contest, which produced over 20 missions, many of which are large and excellent quality.

    A bit off line: Will there be walkthroughs, apart from Ricebug ones from 2017 up till now from these latest FM's?

    I know of one or two people who are busy with making walkthroughs, but they are going through all that stuff chronologically, and verify and improve what Ricebug wrote about older missions as well. So they might be some years away from reaching the new missions, but will get to them one day.

    I've made lootlists, which also include simple solutions for the objectives, for all the contest missions and will release them once the contest results have been announced.

    I may write full walkthroughs at a later date, but I'm more interested in revamping all the older missions lootlists atm and fixing broken missions with dml's.

    Regarding FM downloads, www.thiefmissions.com was the staple for years - it's still good to use for anything up to about October of 2013.

    I tried to pick up the slack after that (with some overlap), so Southquarter Downloads includes everything from 2013 to present day (including all the recent contest entries).

    Thanks for promoting my site, Beltzer

    @A.Stahl
    Updatable? Yes. Seek for new missions? Definitely.

    As previous guys write, there are many places to search for missions. It is something that I really like in our community. We have so many websites where one can download a mission or read tutorials on how to make them.

    On Thief Guild website, I try to build a platform, where users can take care of mission directory content themselves. As for now, you can submit different content to existing directory entries. Soon, we want to launch a feature so that every author can manage their missions without moderator's approval. It will be possible to create official page for your mission just the way you want it to be, with your description, screenshots etc. but also allowing you to publish any other content useful to related mission players and release each update faster.

    I thought Cheap Thief Missions was still good even to this day, just slow in uploading new (2017+) content nowadays?

    Epithumia (the guy who runs thiefmissions.com) will host any Thief files these days, but you have to request it. He doesn't update the site regularly or automatically. If you check out the listings, there are only 7 FMs available that have been released after 2013.

    Probably half those are mine, since I still make it a point to notify him when I release something.

    On this note I just checked . Jason's upload page still seems to function. I used it frequently for all types of files when I was still actively building.

    http://thiefmissions.com/uploads/

    Does nobody bother to send Jason stuff?

    Nope, most authors don't bother to contact him any more when they release something. Used to be everyone did, but that was mostly because thiefmissions was about the ONLY mission repo around, now we have quite a few.

    I always liked a simplistic website design, where I just go to get something as fast as possible and as basically as possible, no need for fancy pictures because I found information about it somewhere else, so I always used thiefmissions. But yeah, it is slightly "outdated", not maintained as much anymore.

    thiefguild.com looks nice, it goes by a very fancy design in comparison to thiefmissions.com with its obviously "Cheap" design, but still, gotta modernize.

    AFAIK, gnartsch is currently reorganizing his site, so it's not really missing. His download site should rather be counted as "currently unavailable". TTLG.DE, on the other hand, has already been reorganized, and its download portal was available one minute ago at https://www.ttlg.de/index.php?fm-download/. That entry could also be changed, I think.

    However, I'm neither gnartsch's official speaker, nor TTLG.DE's, so whoever changes the entries here should probably ask the relevant people before that.
