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.
1.1.10 is out. The core Sneaky Upgrade has the following changes:
A couple of people have installed the SU and then wondered why their existing saves appeared to be missing - and it really wasn't obvious... So the tweak tool will now show a dialogue explaining this, plus a couple of other non-obvious things. The dialogue can be easily disabled.
To improve compatibility with Windows 10, the installer now provides a wrapper DLL to make the game run on Direct3D 9, in the form of the d3d8to9 DLL from ReShade. If you have dgVoodoo or something else installed already, the installer will respect that and not install d3d8to9 by default.
It has often been suggested to copy the skip-the-current-mission function from Thief 1-2. This is now in place, with a couple of limitations: City sections can't be skipped but must be played through normally. This is the only caveat for Thief 3 Gold. The original (non-T3G) missions can only be ended from one of the half-maps and, worse, ending the Pagan and Kurshok missions will not cause the objectives to be ticked off, so it may not be possible to continue. (This has been fixed in Thief 3 Gold.)
New stuff in the mods:
Here's an example of the new map text compared to the original MP - notice the partially missing text on the upper left in the original. (GIF, should animate.)
Note that because of gamesys changes the savegame version for Minimalist has been bumped - so anybody wanting to use MP savegames from previous stable releases should not update.
The Fonts mod:
Here's an example of the currency symbol in use:
Thief 3 Gold:
One of the removed .sch files was there to improve the formatting of loading quotes - that's now done by overriding a general tweak setting. The other one would slightly rename savegames so that original and T3G saves could be told apart - an artifact from early T3G versions, really. For a long time T3G saves have been kept separate and they contain a file specifying which version of T3G they're for, so the .sch file has been removed.
Here's a video showing some of the above: Bright cursor, custom resolution set to follow the desktop, nicer loading screen quotes, skipping missions. Minimalist playstyle restrictions shown in the briefing, non-silent creep, classic HUD with original health bar / lightgem, arrow trails:
Thanks to everyone who tested the betas, especially Estel Randir for lots of MP feedback and suggestions. Also thanks to Glypher and DonSleza4e for the Russian FMSel translation.
There are no changes to the mod content, so the Update Edition can be used for 188.8.131.528 beta installs. If upgrading from 184.108.40.206 use the Full Edition and make sure to install the new versions of the MP, T3G and Fonts mods.

Many changes, including one that makes very large maps possible!
Improved configurability for the Minimalist Project, fix for multi-monitor cursor issues, new Fonts mod.
Also, a loading text tweak, display selection, multicore mode (YMMV) and an improved installer. And the patched game will again launch from Steam etc.
More tweaks, a loot list fix, and GOG users get their Alt-Tab, brightness and vsync back.

One of the best games of all time.
Going to get thief 3 so fast as i play thro thief 2 The Metal Age.
This game is really good. I have it, but am still trying to get better at mapping with hl2 to make a good map with thief.I loved this game. First time i playeditwas when i was about 9, (five years ago) and this was the sequel to that game.So sickkk.
Mapping for HL2 is quite different from mapping for Thief. :s
yeah the hl2 uses additive mapping and the unreal uses sbtractive mappping...
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.
I didn't know either, I want it now! :)
