    ok,

    i THINK I found the right room - another room with a water pool and 3 openings -

    BUT - no switch in rafters and no statues - could it be only on expert difficulty?
    (on Hard you dont have to bother with the talismans!)

    Thanx for trying so hard to help gitb - much appreciated!
    To thieve or not to thieve?
    Oh hell, that aint even a question!

    WOW. A big wow.
    Started this mission a looong time ago. At that time, I was not impressed. Perhaps that is even an understatement. Didn’t like the streets where I was when I started. In my memory it just didn’t feel right, had some aura I didn’t like: that huge grey/black block with windows, and more important: too many guards/cops in my opinion. I got in, but shortly after that gave up. Can’t remember why really, possibly because of the guards inside, or I didn’t feel like playing a fm at that time.

    March 28 (2011)*: the name of the mission did not sound familiar to me, so I decided to play it.
    Ah no, not that one again! This time however, decided to push myself through, to see where it would lead me.
    GOOD decision. Quickly I found out that the p(a)lace (a palace due to its size AND looks!) was HUGE! A positive thing, cause much to explore! Some hallways felt a bit empty (south(?) of the inner garden) but overall I believe you did a good at decorating and furnishing – making the house livable/habitable.
    Some days after completing the mission I finally decided to do a tutorial and fire up DromEd at last. During the tut I quickly started to realize how much work must have been put in it.
    Well done, Richard Cull, and thanks for the experience!

    *I hear you thinking: why not posted right after you completed it? Good question. I had many ideas for an own mission, should it ever come. I had the plans to post here (thanks to my brother – a shadowy figure – who made me realize that if no one would post on the forums, no mission would be spoken of, and no author would get the appreciation they deserve) but wanted to realize some of my fantasies as soon as possible.

    Oh boy!
    What a freakin' huuughe mansion! I guess looting Buckingham Palace would be wayyyy easier.
    But very nice and well done.
    I made a pretty good job on exploration and looting... but in the end got totally lost in the mansion and could not find my way back to the office or the vault.
    Took me ages to get back on track.

    So I played Art of Thievery today for the first time. Probably the best single building FM I've ever played, really great stuff.

    I was wondering if there's anyone who remembers the intended way to get the order that you input the code to open the second vault door.

    This was on GhOsT by the way.

    spoiler:

    -I visited the elemental room under the study and lit each of the 4 areas with a glyph and screenshotted them in case I forgot
    -In the book used to decipher the code it says "The Order of the Combination" and then Fire (1) Water (2) Earth (3) Air (4)
    -For me the code was 6195 (I bruteforced it) which means the order was supposed to be Earth, Air, Fire, Water
    -Does anyone know why that would be?

    There's more than one door into the Waterpool room so maybe you're at the wrong door? I just checked and there's a guard outside the south door wearing the Waterpool room key for me.

    I am nearly completed the mission. After getting all the 3 pictures my game keeps crashing every time i try to bring up the arrows the game will just freeze for a while then crash to desk top.

    The same thing happened last game around the same spot. the new game is doing the same thing never had this problem with any other mission. I am using new dark 1.21

    I uninstalled thief 2 and did a clean install with TafferPatcher and started a new game everything was good untill I got to the church to get the The Talisman of Air. Then the game started crashing again. When I try to use a arrow nothing happens then after a few seconds I get Thief2 has stopped working then crash to desktop.

    Maybe this fan mission does not like new dark. Could that be the reason?

    Thanks

    It's possible but I can't really say. You can have multiple installations on your computer of Thief so I've got one that's pre-NewDark to use for older FMs to avoid running into any unexpected issues. You could try that easily enough.

    This is happening on some other fan mission as well so i do not know what could be causing it.

    I'm in the south staircase and cannot locate the painting......

    Are you playing on that same difficulty? There are different paintings in different locations for each one.

    The best FM I ever played

    Do you guys remember the feeling you had when you finished "Life of the Party" for the first time?
    The satisfaction of beating a huge and wonderful level ?

    I think I just experienced something even more intense a few minutes ago when I finished AoT on GhOsT, and actually ghosting the whole level.
    Final save at 6h22 ... And probably 12 to 15h of actual playing as I died around 500 times

    In a word, AoT is, to me, the best FM I ever played.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    It is the genuine Thief 2 experience pushed to the maximum.
    Everything is excellent, especially level design, reading part and AIs management.

    I just can't believe it was released 17 years ago !
    I don't know if Richard is still active but really, thank you for that. This FM will stay in my mind for a very loooong time

    PS : I just learnt by reading the forum there is a key for the windows. Need to restart and find it !

    Wow guess which my new favorite mission is? Ok, maybe not, but top 10 for sure. The mansion is huuuuuuuuuge. It took me just under 2 hours on easy? It felt like 6 hours. 2001 man.
