The project is a HD texture mod for the first part of the game series Thief: The Dark Project / Thief Gold.
This is a review of the 1.0 version, other things may be added later.
Finally, after waiting quite a bit, the 1.0 version has finally come.
I have actually played Thief Gold with this HD mod many months ago, so, when i heard that the 1.0 version was coming out with all this new stuff, i figured i'd give TG a good spin once again (While cleaning my mouth from the poison that the Thief reboot has struck me with.).
So far, i am amazed at the amount of work done, not only has Bentraxx replaced all of the textures with high-res ones, the guy has also managed to add some extra lil' bits to basically enhance the experience, post-processing, widescreen videos, subtitles, models, skins, AI changes, the sorts.
The only complain that brought it down to 9 for me is the fact that the view models seem to be inconsistent with the world model, which i hope can be resolved quickly.
I have managed to finish the first level in Expert, and will update the review as i go along.
Such a great mod for a great game, thanks to the autor and his hard and realy NICE work, respect for this mod. 10/10
PS: I hope the modautor will sth. make like this for Thief 2 too, would be awesome!
Sehr gute Texturen ohne bugs,kann es nur weiter empfehlen.
Excellent mod for an excellent game. I'd like to thank mod authors for creating this masterpiece. Now playing Thief Gold again with it!
This is a review of 1.0. This mod is absolutely fantastic and dare I say it, makes the game look better than the horrible Thief reboot graphically. It doesn't change any gameplay features or sound, purely graphics. The grass and bush especially look mind-blowing and goes from looking like vomit play-dough to photorealistic shrubs. It was literally mind-blowing when I first played it. It manages to keep the exact same atmosphere from the original game yet make it look just so ridiculously better. This is easily the best graphical mod for any game ever. At the time of review, there's also a version for Thief 2 (0.93) which looks great but not nearly as good as Gold for some reason, although it is a far lower version. Version 1.0 for Thief 2 is coming out soon and so is 1.2 for Thief Gold and a new Dark Project version. I'm waiting until the Dark Project version is out so I can go through the series again and hopefully by the time I get to Thief 2 the 1.0 version will be out. I'm so hyped and I can't put off playing Thief any longer!
There is not much to say, just install it and play. Well worth it!
When I saw this mod, I have expected HD textures for my beloved games of the Thief series. And just that would have deserved a 10 for improving one of the only things these games need in terms of improvement. I have NOT expected for the visuals to be pushed further into nex gen games with models, effects and beautifully wet water. And then you go and add real lights in places, where fakes have been put in the original - an immersion breaker finally removed! Thanks!
Thief games are not only my most favorite prodigious and profound game series, but also somehow a parallel universe for me to contemplate and feel immersed. The esoteric atmosphere of the series is incredibly authentic and the HD Mod is a total celebration of a masterpiece, Looking Glas Studio team, millions of loyal fans and in my view, late 90's as a forgotten realm, a dark age.
Very GOOD mod! THANK YOU! Awwwwwww... look at these textures! It looks ****** great! Models, textures, style - in the highest level. I see great evolution from 1998 to present days! My god.. I ****** love it :3333
This mod is a completely new experiance. After many years I can once again finish the original story of Garrett with the better graphic and thick atmosphere. Thief HD with other mod bring us the new game. Gecko has created something special. Thx taffer! Constantine would say... "Refreshment, Mr. Garrett?"
