Rarely seen and never caught, Garrett is a master thief — the best who ever was. Able to sneak past any guard, pick any lock, and break into the most ingeniously secured residences, he steals from the rich and gives to himself, making a living in the dark and foreboding City. Here crime and corruption are commonplace, wealthy nobles prey on the poor and each other, and magic and machinery coexist uneasily. World-weary and cynical, Garrett wants nothing more than to be left alone to ply his trade. But things never work out that way.

Hi, This is a conversion of Thief Dark Project original maps ---> to Thief 3, of course many parts have been rebuilt from scratch or this would not make sense to take the maps as they are, and put them into unreal, but the game (1998) need major alterations, to make them appear as beautiful as a modern game, also the mod has many features that the normal game (thief 1) does not have as Havok Physics , Enanched Dynamic Shadow System , Dynamics Textures , Normal Mapping, Volumetric Light,Shaders 2.0 or high Volumetric Fog etc etc, this is the engine of ElderScrolls 4, Splinter Cell 3 and many others. it is useless to settle all the qualities of unreal tech how about the game, the mod is faithful to 'original in the dialogues in games, videos, the characters, the story, the briefings videos so everything , musics included some house only enanched with Urneal Tech 2,it is in other words as Black Mesa, which is based on original maps, but improved, and sometimes remade from scratch this to give the game a new charm as all the most modern game. BM is based on HL1 maps.

I could do it with Unreal 3 - Thief 4 because i worked on UDK , but the Thief 4 'editor was not released from EM . i asked to them but nothing to do, the only change to see Thief 1 modern is using T3
I'm a purist of the game, I have not altered what make great Thief, but I altered that which I think should be changed, and even the developers would agree on this ,is not 1998 anymore .

Another point is the Architectures of the old game , which in my opinion need a rebuilt for clear reasons ,there 's a problem with the architecture, if we can call it so, clearly something fun :)
here an example the balcony is small and is just painted , a balcoby like this should be at least 3 times bigger, but it remains a texture. : LOL

A fun game definitely. Best played by people up for sneaky gameplay that like skulking around in shadows jabbing people from behind. Coming from the same direction as Deus-Ex did you can already estimate what kind of quality and love to details await you in that title.

Thief 3 is a truly wonderful game. You play as Garret - a master thief who is employed by the keepers (the people who trained him before he went on his own way) to save the city. As Garret, you go about breaking into many places from Cathedrals, Nobleman's houses to haunted houses and Pagan places of worship. There are many ways you can go about to finish your mission, will you go about killing people and using your best equipment to get through a mission? Or will you be a true master thief manoeuvring…
