Look like you're getting the hang of this. I knew somebody had to be behind all of those IP's. Big McLargeHuge 07:52, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Edit

I see you often in the Wiki, and anytime I see your name in the news box I confuse yourself with some of the Thief's item related to fishes.. xD LOL

Dromed edits Edit

I would suggest using the "source" view when copying and pasting from one property to another. Or turning off the Rich Text Editor so that there aren't extra formatting problems introduced into the code. See:Container (-146)* and Container (-146).

--Sxerks 00:53, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
All of the images from the Dromed pages were painstakingly made by me. It takes a long time to set up and take "clean" screenshots of them all. Right now I don't have the time to make any.--Sxerks 02:49, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

re:TDS Cut Material? Edit

I just got a new computer, so I don't have T3ED installed to check(not sure where I would look either). But, if you haven't seen them in-game, just mark their location as "Cut Material?" and maybe someone can verify later.--Sxerks 21:24, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

FA Edit

Hey fish, while I'm away, you got the featured articles. Big McLargeHuge 15:35, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Right here: Real easy. Just make sure that the links are all good. Big McLargeHuge 16:48, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, come on, it's easy. Besides, who else is going to do it? Big McLargeHuge 22:13, April 21, 2011 (UTC)


I notice that you write down a lot of unusual things about TDS. Nobody has written a Strange and Unusual guide for TDS... Big McLargeHuge 16:07, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

FRAPS will let you take screens in it's free version. Big McLargeHuge 14:48, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Well, keep compiling them anyway. I think you could do it one day. Big McLargeHuge 20:38, May 17, 2011 (UTC)

RIP Edit

Here lies Fish Preferred, who died of wrist explosion.

Hey, the arrow next to the edit button works for you? I won't work for me and I can't figure it out. And, be careful, you created a double redirect. Big McLargeHuge 17:43, June 28, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, the arrow worked! Ok, Curator Milton redirected to Milton (Curator), which redirected to the final page. That is a double redirect. Big McLargeHuge 14:52, June 29, 2011 (UTC)


hi i was wondering is there any bug or any possible way to remove the gates and entering the prison again? and plz reamove from prison section the you get clubed end up in prison becouse it only happends once in gameplay........-_-

Clubed or sabbed, i ment the mission durring the prison senario, someone typed if Garret get stabed or drowned in docks he instantly end up in prison parton but that sounds VERY unreal since Garret only ends up ONCE in the prsion. not like GTA Vicy city -__- where ur charackter ends up in police station, understand now?

Gloves = your best friend

During the part there ur able to buy gloves :) u can explore bugs i didt plenty of it but did not sucseed with prison entry. u can climb up the building and see thru non roof vision that shows entry to prison, so i jump down it, but somehow it got this......invinsable roof....looks like a glass roof but u can see thru u know. But the main problem for this great game is not game itself. its the modders who are eather ignorant or freaking lazy to make MODS for this game. i just dont see ANY reasson or excuses why there shouldent be thounds of mods for this game. its not normal. if i could have any experiance in pc world the great mod i would create is Helios SPAWN mod that is u can spawn any object or charackter in the game. aka spawn list = wish list, cool huh? well that doesnt sound too good to be true becouse modders CAN i reapeat CAN make this worke if they just put there lazy butt into workeing.

Object Model waypt Edit

There is no visible object model for this, so there is no need for an image. I reverted those edits. The caltrop object model might exist so i left that one alone on Particle (-61).--Sxerks 01:00, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

if it's never rendered in-game or in dromed then there is no reason for it. Also, it's best to upload an image first before adding a link of the image to a page.--Sxerks 01:10, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Prison Vid on Youtube Edit

Yeah, it seems that he found some way in. Very interesting info! thanks for the video.

How to get proper and clean screenshot Edit

With what did you take the last screenshots for TDS? They're awful. I guess you have took them with a phone camera oriented to the screen or something like that... Just press the key Print on your keyboard, then go to Photoshop, or Paint, then paste the content to have proper screenshots.

Waiting if you need more help. Don't hexitate to write me. Cheers.

The City Map Edit

Hi, I saw, you made a map of the city. There is a more than 10 years old discussion about the map over at ttlg start reading here. One of the most recent and in my opinion most exact maps is this one. By now, most locations are known, but some are still 'object of dispute' (for example if shalebridge is to the west of the river or on both sides. Here is a map with all locations that are definitely known. --John5timzum 17:54, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Any news?Edit

SO i dont know if there is any news to the thief series thats a shame, a good game like this should be expandable like assassins creed, holy taffer duck muck sake.

Your TDS screenshots Edit

Hey, why in the Builder's name did you take your TDS screenshots by photographing your computer's monitor? Why didn't you use the PrintScreen key or Fraps? They're of extremely poor quality, the colors and gamma are all wrong. They shall need to be replaced one day, so the job will have to be done twice. That's a pity, because you took many, and with dedication... No offense of course, I'm just trying to help. Deckard8t88 21:35, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

He has it for the xbox, not the pc.--Sxerks 22:37, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
Oops. I guess that clears things up. Deckard8t88 09:00, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

Blue Heron guards Edit

How are they acting like zombies? I've never seen the guards act that way, counting that I haven't screwed around enough in the level. 6rosalina (talk) 21:32, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

I apologize, I forgot and I've acctually done this. There's one property that says their aggresion level (and this is if I'm remembering correctly) and if you switch it to false they won't attack no matter what. I've had a group of zombies and another time a tree beast that wouldn't attack, and I've tried it with a guard as well.6rosalina (talk) 23:41, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

naming files Edit

from the mine.jpg talk page: if the image is going to be used in the dromed objects section it should have the correct "long name" and be by itself, that one is fine it just needs to be renamed.

when renamed, a redirect can be left behind, or all of the "what links here" page link can be changed.

since you need to be an admin to rename a file I'm going to promote you (and you have quite a few edits too)

--Sxerks (talk) 03:28, September 21, 2012 (UTC)

re: admin duties.

Not really many duties, just checking the recent changes for vandalism and bad edits and then do a rollback and maybe a short term ban for vandal IPs.

Other than that T4 isn't out yet so not many people are editing here, so not much to admin. --Sxerks (talk) 21:08, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

TDS gameplay Edit

The asbestos fires work on the PC too, and so do most of the other things althrough there's always a chance of falling and dying in the white expanse around the levels when exploring. I'm going to look more later for the glitches in TDS like the one time a cradle zombie slipping on oil flung Garrett across the room. 6rosalina (talk) 23:33, November 30, 2012 (UTC) 

re: imagemap Edit

I think all wikis do. It has been used once at least on the this page: T2_CREDITS. --Sxerks (talk) 23:25, December 6, 2012 (UTC)


i read your message and checked over the saving of the text i wrote. couldnt find any sms abbreviations in it and tried to write in same format as seen in the other missions. since my mother tongue isn´t english , maybe you can tell me exactly what u meant?? if you need the text for telling me so i could send you...greetings, Ynachtsmann

Timeline Edit

I believe they are mentioned as ages in a readable in the keeper libraries. Big McLargeHuge (talk) 04:30, May 3, 2013 (UTC)

Quotes Edit

I could fucking kiss you! The reason wookieepedddiiiaaa can do that is they have "users" that range in the "quintillions" :p Big McLargeHuge (talk) 01:43, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

re: DromEd Properties Edit

The descriptions were copied as is from the "nameless tower" an old website by Nameless Voice from the TTLG, it looks to be backed-up here. --Sxerks (talk) 18:56, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

Highlighted roads for South Quarter/Home TurfEdit

Any possibility you could upload a version of the Assassin's city map with the roads around Home Turf highlighted for the South Quarter article?Baggins (talk) 00:24, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

Images Edit

Left a note for you at User_talk:Sxerks#T3_screenshots

Also, to take great images of T3/T4, I just made a guide : Forum:Capturing Screenshots. Cheers -- Tom Jenkins (Reply) 07:47, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry didnt realize you had Xbox -- Tom Jenkins (Reply) 07:48, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
That happens a lot. The worst thing about it is that it doesn't even work properly on Xbox 360. All of the light effects penetrate through walls. --Fish Preferred (talk) 03:55, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

Do you have an email or gmail for handling large files for projects, for sending/receiving compressed archives of images, for instance?  Time to go get new images for the articles missing them isn't available, but work already done for other reasons can be mined.  I don't know how much time you have, but perhaps this can help.  Someone else will have to do the work of making them Wikia-ready, but there are troves of images available in raw form.  I could also send texture files where they provide greater detail before they are applied to objects, mainly useful for textures that aren't wrapped or stretched for the most part, like the Crippled Burrick sign.  There are angles and proximities to objects that are limited within the game, but can be cheated in the editors, made to face the camera straight on and zoomed in much closer.

You can find a lot of images that would fill the voids here at this Wikia that can be cropped out of existing images, and saved in the preferred format for this wiki.

Mynell's secret recipe is a common Unrolled Scroll object, worth 50 loot.  This image shows the safe it was linked to, in its surroundings, and the recipe in inventory.

As you probably know, Officer benny is only a common model, and will only be identifiable as Benny from location cues. The Stupid Guard voice-set can be heard coming from every male Watchman model at various locations. 09:46, December 17, 2014 (UTC)Gillsweet

This is just a courtesy message about one change to the Pagan Cornerstones location.  You previously edited out somebody's correction that the first Docks cornerstone is east of the South Quarter door, saying that the cornerstone is instead found to the south.  This is not true, and my attempt to find the cornerstone south of that South Quarter door was wasted.  The clearest directions for finding the cornerstone closest to the South Quarter door is to enter the Docks via the keeper door, and then head immediately east from the keeper door to the top of the stairs leading down.  The cornerstone is found along the bottom of the wooden wall to the left of the top of these stairs, and this is almost directly east of the glowing keeper door glyph.  I've triple-checked this; I just had the game open and confirmed the other user's correction by finding the stone, firing a single arrow, noting the visual change, and getting the faction change message.  I triple-checked the compass direction as well.  Thanks, A Friend.
