Thief: The Dark Project is a single player stealth-based game made by Looking Glass Studios for Microsoft Windows PCs and published in 1998 by Eidos Interactive.

The player takes the role of Garrett, a master thief plying his trade in an unnamed city. Garrett posesses great thieving and stealth skills, including an almost preternatural ability to hide in shadows. These skills come partly from his growing up as a street urchin and from his later education with the secret society known as The Keepers. The game follows Garrett as he clashes with the powerful and embarks on a journey into the City's strange history, stirring up more than he bargained for.

The gameplay centres on the need to remain undetected by enemies as much as possible and the avoidance of open combat. The game achieved this through the use of highly detailed lighting, sound and AI systems that were exceptional in their day. Enemies and NPCs are able to see and hear the player and exhibit a wide variety of reactions and behaviours when they detect anything unusual; from seeking out the sound to attacking or running for help. To avoid detection the player must stay out of sight by sticking to the shadows or creating darkness by putting out lights. Players must also avoid making too much noise by moving carefully and keeping in mind what sort of surface they are walking on. Other notable features include large, complex levels with many interactive objects and a detailed physics simulation.

Thief 2X HD Mod v1.2 is out!

"T2X: Shadows of the Metal Age" is an unofficial expansion of the game "Thief 2 - The Metal Age".
In T2X you will take on the role of Zaya, a female merchant sailor, who is undertaking her very first visit to The City in order to trade and meet her cousin who she has not seen since she was a child. Little does she know of the dangers that lurk there.

Installation:
===========

Just run it through FMSEL as any Fan Mission!

(Thanks to Ricebug for the FM-conversion of the expansion!)

NOTE:
If you have also installed the "Thief 2 HD Texture Mod" you have to deactivate it: Rename the "HDMOD" folder into "HDMOD_".
Don't use this mod in combination with the "T2X - Necro Age Mod"!

For more installation instructions visit:

Thief 2X HD Mod FAQ
OR
Ttlg.com

Some Notes:
===========

The mod requires a full installation of the original Thief 2 game, patched with NewDark which is included in the Tafferpatcher!

The HD mod requires a lot of graphic and CPU power!

DON'T USE OLD SAVEGAMES!

==========
Changelog:
==========

v1.2:

- added HD textures for all original missions
- added new vegetation
- added new AI mesh-skins
- added improved objects
- added new water and lava textures
- added new torch and fire flames

Thief Dark Project is old but still great game.
To this day standards graphics are poor, but enough.
Anyway I am not really sure if many knew but reason why user made missions are refered as mods is that thief Editor Dromed allowed to modify various things in game, like ammounts of items etc.

And users could create own game system files, litteral mods with quite ease.
However thief level editor has very grude outlook, and takes some time to learn its philosophy, but then it is one of best editors I have used.

As I doubt many of these will show up here otherwise, here are some good sources for Thief 'mods', (or rather, Fan Missions) and instructions on how to get them running:

Thiefmissions.com
Thief-thecircle.com
Keepofmetalandgold.com
Shadowdarkkeep.com
Fan missions

Ttlg.com
Fan Mission forum on TTLG

FAQ on the forum

Note, that in addition to the zipped mission packages, you also need a program called DarkLoader, or alternatively Garrettloader, to run missions.
