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.

1.1.6 is out... Find it on the download page.

The installer:

  • Thief 3 Gold and the Briefings are now activated by default
  • Fixed a bug which could cause the install paths for mods and fan missions to be set wrong on Windows XP
  • Now bundles and installs the official VS2013 runtime
  • On Wine (Linux/Mac) the runtime DLLs are set native for Thief 3 automatically

The patched game now works out of the box on Wine. (Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 with Wine 1.8 pretending to be Windows XP.)

The game:

  • Game launch now bypasses the launcher exe. This eliminates most Steam and GOG quirks
  • Window Mode option: Fullscreen, windowed or borderless windowed
  • New tweaks: Mouse sensitivity, run speed, gravity (separate tweak now) and ambient light
  • Fix for the in-game loot list showing wrong values and total in certain fan missions
  • Option to allow attempted loading of savegames that are rejected as damaged by the game. (Not available in the tweaker)
  • Fixed a bug where fan missions without either a User.ini or User_patch.ini file would not get settings copied in from the OM User.ini
  • Fixed (hopefully) the game crashing on multisampling settings 2 and 4 on Windows 10

Please use the icon(s) installed by the patch to launch the game - any original shortcuts will still launch the original game, as a result of renaming the exe files to escape Steam and GOG interference. For the same reason GarrettLoader users need to do a bit of manual work, post-install. (It's possible that there'll be installer support for this later.)

Here's an example of the ambient light tweak in use in the fan mission Abandoned Kingdom. The setting here is 0.3, making things comfortably dark: (Fog tweak example thrown in.)

Ambient light tweak Fog factor tweak


And here's a short video of Garrett on speed (5x normal run speed):

The loot list fix is active only for fan missions, and only when starting a new game. (Loading an old save will turn the fix off.) Because each type of loot only has one line in the list, the column originally showing per-item value is changed to show the total value for all items of that type. The header is then changed to show "Total" instead of "Value" so that's an easy way to tell if the fix is active.

No progress on the other Windows 10 issues (broken brightness and vsync). :(

The mods:

  • Because gravity is now a separate tweak, the Minimalist Project now has a Gravity Factor override
  • Due to issues such as this, Minimalist is now disabled while playing fan missions

If you currently have Minimalist active it's best to finish any in-progress fan missions before updating.

A huge thank you to TTLG member fortuni as the main tester this time! Both the loot list fix and the new tweaks are a result of his fan mission walkthrough writing project. In addition he's tested several beta versions very thoroughly - the loot list fix in particular.

Another spin-off of fortuni's project is a crude tool for finding loot and keys in Thief 3 levels:

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…
