The patch contains various bugfixes and game improvements such as widescreen support, and provides some GUI tweaks. It also enables the use of the FMSel fan mission loader frontend with Thief 3 and bundles the most important T3 mods. It works with the GOG and Steam versions of the game.
Original game bugs and issues that have been fixed or improved:
As an FM loader, the emphasis is on ease of use and reliability:
Additionally some optional tweaks have been incorporated:
All tweaks are disabled by default.
The full edition includes the mods The Minimalist Project, The Collective Texture Pack (a.k.a. John P), "GarrAT" Garrett Animation Tweaks, Thief 3 Gold, Briefing Videos and a small mod providing updated font textures. Please see those threads or the included readme files for more information. The update edition only includes the SU patch and the SneakyTweaker tool. It provides a much smaller download in cases where the mods are unchanged since the last release.

A huge thanks goes to le Corbeau for NewDark and FMSel, to John P, New Horizon, Beleg Cúthalion and mensch for permission to include their mods, and to the FMSel translators: gnartsch (German), Briareos H (French), raven4444 (Polish), DonSleza4e and Glypher (Russian). Thanks also to clearing, Lord Soth and Esme for file mirrors.
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.
