    Looks great, like the buckled roof on the house.

    Those little back stairs and wall look kinda fat tho, should be made thinner for aesthetics sake. Dont let the goblin get youuu

    You're telling him to change a bunch of BSPs and you think that the goblin won't get him? Shame on you, shame on you!

    Thanks for feedback.

    NeuroFunker: Model will be included (as a TBot subclass), actually is included in version which have not been posted yet (hope the problems with me and Thivery-Customs have been solved yet and the mappack is on its way to the downlaod section)

    Schelicher: Well, I do not think so, but maybe when additional problems and improvements will be solved and deco and furniture added I change these BSP parts.

    Chainsaw: majority of my own problems with BSP holes and Unreal geometry goblin were due to four things:

    1) subtraction over subtraction geometry where two exactly same brushes were positioned in the exactly same position.

    2) subtraction of sheet brush (this is not pain in ass, this is catasrophe, hard to find)

    3) smaller not so drastical problem with several semisolids conected together, where parts of brush sides overlaps. This end in confusion of UED BSP routine and invisible part(s) of brush(es) from within the level (but visible from outside)

    4) overlaping and crossection of transparent sheet and invisible collision hull cuasing invisible parts of transparent sheet and so.

    Maybe goblin fears me (because I own a BIG hammer)...

    Brody said you didnt entered an entry to the mappack and so it cant be approved for download. He may clear up things.

    Also, the house looks preety nice.

    why not upload it at some filehosting? Why it has to be customs-center only? Not finding any sense in it.

    Not much progress. Just few pices of furniture in the upstairs, and few light sources on the rooftop. I have to finish the gardens and skybox. (I was doing some optimization on Th-DarkCathedral).
    Mappers do thier hard work for other people (game players namely), but if none of these other people give them feedback, there is no power to do what have to be done.

    Be kind to Your mappers because they are doing it for You and give them hope...

    Added (finaly) skybox, and I am now working on the gardens (maybe some custom bush and tree meshes or so, but I am not sure right now).

    Also I have finaly begin to model second custom model for this map (NobleLady) following shots are renders form 3Dstudio and I have to warn You the model is not finished yet, so the texturing is temporary and few other things will be changed soon (hopefully)...

    New batch of devel screenies and so...

    I have added part of BSP geometry on the streets (it is still under construction), where the thief spawning place will be situated, I have to design entrance routes to the Villa (not only through gates and mantling the wall but several sever entrances and so).

    The greenhaouse BSP geometry has been finished and is awaiting some foliage deco (gr.. I have to go and run the 3DStudio once more), same goes for gardens (I have few additional foliage models in mind, so next week I hopefully post some screenshots and 3DS render pics of foliage devel...

    The FemaleServant model is still unfinished (it is fully working but rigging is quickhack, I have to finish this for sure)

    The NobleLady model has been finaly finished (as You might see in one of following posts below), The final version of noble lady (now available with three hairsyles, additional skin textures not shown here) got new footwear but for some reason I have had decided to let the NobleLady in ThVilla wear slippers instead of pumps (additional subclass). This crazy idea is just to point out she is not yet ready to go out (to the Th-Theatre perhaps?) for typical female reasons like not properly dressed, need few "minutes" for finishing make up and so)

    Yeah, that bridge is looking sexy.
    I like the look of the map so far, nice, bright and dangerous. Can't wait to loot it.

    The majority of light sources in the main building is TriggerLight so there is easy way how to make places dark and creepy (as You can see because there are ThSmallSwitch objects here and there - see screenshots).

    Now what? Do You (Edy) think I have to do cut down version of the map instead of new map ???

    OK, Just kidding. But If You think, You are allowed to create smaller version for onlineplay...

    Not much to post right now. I am creating new decos for Th-Villa (and possible other maps), some 3D modelling (maze bushes, new trees and so. not yet ready to preview...)

    I made some preparations for the Th-Convent/Th-Church map (I will post some screenies during next weeek). Hopefully the Th-Villa would be finished on beggining of March...

    I will try but despite rumours I am only human not any kind of immortal being so I have my own reallife problems and issues...

    But Yes I am worknig on this...

    BTW how many people playing Th-DarkCathedral and Th-Eulenburg?

    I see something like 6 downloads total (ThCustoms and Filefront), not much it seems to me...

    BTW I do not know this is not repost, but I have made updated skins for Priestesses (including those for Th-Convent, I might post pics here too).

    well not many thievery players, are visiting customs and this forums, like over 50% i say, but to be fair, i don't see this maps being played on the servers. I guess ppl are playing em offline mostly.

    So where else to upload the map (if there are people playing, it is more than wise to give the map to them)?

    any upload website, post link here, at customs, bandits shoutbox also Tomats forums, this places being visited by players, but again, community is very small, and not every 1 does check for new files at web. They simply join a server and play lol.

    megaupload is usually good for not deleting files, however long they've been around for.
