There are Loot Guides per mission available here. Is it permissible (copyrights?) for me to copy them into the individual mission pages?
- Says on Tom's Hardware that they're already taken from USENET, which essentially means that kind of copying is to be expected. But the author, senornacho (senornacho @ austin . rr . com) still retains copyrights, and might not want his piece released under the GFDL. Maybe we could contact the good señor? --Larris 23:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
- Contact sounds like the best move. Too bad Fett never got around to making a T3 guide since he gave us permission to use his others, as long as we shoot him a Private Message. If we were in a position to make our own, we could avoid copyright infringement altogether, and we don't even have the time to plagiarize well. :p Ehcmier 00:37, 23 February 2009 (UTC)Ehcmier
- Weeellll, looking at it I would advise just linking to the GameFAQs site on each mission page until a more thorough lootlist is written by someone. A "lootlist" can't really be copy written since it's easily reproducible, plagiarizing word-for-word would be the problem. That list is the missing specific loot amounts for each item, also what loot type(where it can be pawned). Also, is it accurate? Sxerks 04:36, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
- The original maps aren't very accurate so I wouldn't advise using them. The Mapping Project ones are only 2D so you would have to do something about multiple levels. The maps from the Floorplan project would be the best(when it gets done). Also name your files like this: "OM TDS End of the Bloodline lootlist01.jpg"--Sxerks 14:38, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
- There are a terrific set of walkthroughs for TDS right here on Garrett's Notebook, which cover every damn stealable item. Just scroll through them and pick out the item names and locations! (described very well, just check them out).
- You'll have to replay TDS to find out the items' worth though! (unless you can deduce the item's worth by the percent score)

The full list of briefings and cutscenes on the T1,TG, T2, and this page seem a bit much, considering each mission page has a link to is own briefing, and the Briefings_and_Cutscenes page has the lists. A link to the individual headings would be more appropriate.--Sxerks 16:12, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
- How about I merge the briefing links with the Missions? (I'll do the work myself for all the pages) like this: -- Drtomjenkins 20:46, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
- That's unnecessary, the mission pages have that info, so it's just one click away. If someone's coming to this page to look at missions they'll go to the mission page, if they are looking for briefings and cutscenes, a reference link to [[Briefings and Cutscenes#Thief: Deadly Shadows]] at the bottom would be better.
- I consider it a very high quality instant look-up index to the most important thing thats related to the Mission - the cutscenes. Now come'on, this is a game and I'm trying to keep it easy to navigate instead of minimalistic. How is someone supposed to know that there are cutscenes available for each mission? BTW they are not. Some are in betweens etc.
- So I'm doing it. You'll thank me someday.

- No, you just need to add a "pre-mission cutscene" and/or "post mission cutscene" HEADERS to certain missions, anything more in depth would be part of the Storyline article. If you want to experiment with what pages would look like make a sandbox User:Drtomjenkins/sandbox --Sxerks 00:36, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
- Exactly, thats what I'm doing! The briefings header with all its text just goes away, and the briefing/debriefing/cutscene links hook on to the Missions list! Look above at the 2 line sample that I wrote!

Game Executable icon Edit
Don't know where this can be used. Its the highest resolution game .EXE icon. Not the same as the ones in navbox.

How do you mug people? I know if you hit some one with a blackjack, even if you don't knock them out, all of the loot that they cary will be droped, but what does it mean "brandishing a weapon"?1337 w0n 18:27, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
It works if you take out your bow and draw an arrow back, I don't know if it works if you take out the dagger. You have to do it in front of them though, so they see you, not from behind.--Sxerks 19:19, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
