Thanks! Remember to save before the Venice boat timed run. It can only be pushed once. So you'll have to reload

Concerned is a strong word for a plant Yes I did think about the lilypads too, but I just thought they look really nice in the caves, I didn't want to be restricted too much on the realism.

It is looking great indeed!

Yeah I'm not too worried about the numbers tbh

I've always loved the wreck. It is a beautiful tomb, since it's probably the final resting place of a lot of people. I also like that it is probably the most secluded area Lara has ever been. It's the only place in TR2 where I think all the baddies are redundant.

So you could take it this way. 40 phantoms is just an underwater exploration level (though why the temple? Unless there is a story-wise explanation, it seems a bit co´ncidential...) Wreck of Maria Doria and Living quarters you could probably combine into one bigger level. Would be interesting to see it without any baddies, but make it a bit more spooky with ghosts and stuff. Really create this idea of seclusion. Lots of dripping water and the pressure of tons of ocean pushing against the rusty walls.

The Deck could be the level where the enemy does finally arrive and the battle for the Seraph begins.

Just some ideas
Thanks for the ideas! I had planned that the sea level and 40 Fathoms wouldn't have any enemies accept Sharks. So Lara is alone most of the time, focusing more on atmosphere. The Maria Doria level is when some enemies would start to appear but it would be less than the original levels.

The Maria Doria is quite a large level anyway I'm not sure if it could be combined with Living Quarters but it's definitely a thought! It could be worth a try.

The temple looks Thailand inspired, but didn't the Maria Doria sink somewhere in Europe?

The way I see it, Maria Doria set off from Italy/Venice and sank on its way to China? Or perhaps it sank travelling BACK from China since the Monk mentions Gianni stole the Seraph from Barkhang Monastery and was on his way back to Venice (their hideout) with it?

Of course, I could be totally wrong, but thats what I think.
What about some other smaller shipwrecks or sunken ships to explore? Sunken caves etc etc

Its your game at the end of the day - just putting in my 2 cents
Thanks! Yes in this version I have the ship in the Med sea from leaving Italy. Like you have sourced that's where the Oil rig was located too.

The temple does seem a bit out of place but I wanted to add a actual puzzle into the level somehow, and wouldn't be able to do that with just caves. I do have sea caves as well to explore. I'm not sure about other small wrecks to go into because there's already 4 levels inside the ship anyway I don't wanna just build that. It may feel a little different but oh well I wanted to build something new to the level.

Also I hope the screenshots aren't too dark. My screen has been annoying me recently. In game the level is fine

I really like these news update Bradley.
Very impatient to discovered your 40 phatoms .

Not really people know that but an hypothetical sunken continent called Kamuri Kandam was supposed to be destroy in the Indian Ocean .
I search in internet and the civilisation was a bit like Bradley screen, a mix between Indian and khmer.
Maybe Maria Doria sunk near the ruins of a city of this continent .

This is incredible.. But I do not why, but I thin lara should discover a grand cave with THE DECK after temple, then Living Quarters, then 40 phantoms and at the end she should discover Wreck of Maria Doria where she will find safe with seraph .. I think this will make more sense / just my opinion

That's an interesting idea! But too late for me now

Yes the kitchen looks soo good compared to what it was. The part 1 levels will remain more or less the same, but bugs will be fixed, maybe some more items placed. Just polishing some general feedback. But I don't think anything will be expanded upon.

For Part 2 I'm definitely not going to create any tedious gameplay and over complicated areas like some in Part 1. At the end of the day it's got to be fun to play otherwise I won't even want to play it

I'm coming late to the party as I just found out about the part I release.

I was getting the direct x error message until I tried the third "no waiting for refresh" option. I don't know if it helped, but I also right clicked on the exe file, selected properties and security, then chose the run as administrator option. I'm running the game at 1920x1080 (32 bit along with the 32 bit texture depth) in full screen and can see the fmvs.

I'm so glad you guys like the improvements of the manor. There are so many improvements left to see! Can't wait for everyone to play the updated manor level. I put so many days, weeks and hours of work into it. I really want it to be the best looking classic Manor level ever made.

The thing I'm especially proud of is the realistic proportions of all the objects in the level. I designed a measure system in which Lara is exactly 1.725 meters long, and one block exactly 2.30 meters high. This allowed me to carefully measure and change all objects sizes to real world proportions. It makes the level feel so much more realistic and Lara much less of a weird child/midget she used to be so many times in the classic Tomb Raiders. Core Design never got that right themselves either somehow.

I am glad that you are continuing your project.
40 Fathoms at an advanced stage of work
Certainly the levels of Maria Doria and the Temple of Xian are the coolest to design. Living Quarters and The Deck also belong to those levels that are a pleasure for the player.
For me personally, the whole depth of the wreck is great so I'm waiting for it more than in Tibet.
