Shortlink:
Stealth version of Santa's Workshop Heist, with extra content.
Stealth is a requirement in this map.
It also has Custom Music(that you can use with other heists too) (file name is:"Russian Hardbass") ! - Just simply extract to "assets/mod_overrides" folder of PD2.

It works also as a menu and as a heist soundtrack.
Tracklist:
Anticipation: Cheeki Breeki (hardbass)
Assault: Narkotik Kal (hardbass)
Control: Three Stripes (hardbass)
Stealth(Setup): Dead Silence (creepy song)
(As far as I know, these songs have no copyrights, I hope my info is correct.)


For user who used previous version(s):CRASHES FIXED! DIFFICULTIES HAVE BEEN BALANCED! :)
If you still have any problems, please report it!

The map enviroment has been changed, so it's NOT just a simple stealth remake.
Lots of additions to the original map, dozens of Easter Eggs, secrets and such waiting for you to find.

Some people will may find this map a bit hard because of lots of titan cameras, and guards, but at least this is not just a snatch 'n grab mission. Ergo I didnt want to make a Jewellry Store vol.2. map, I hope you can understand why...   :) 

I have appended an older version of Beardlib that you will might need, if it won't run with your current version of BeardLib.

Please read the IMPORTANT readme file that I linked inside the mod's folder.

Tips:
You can also use the "broken" windows of the workshop to enter.
Playing with more players and ECMs makes the heist a lot easier...
To play in multiplayer, you need all players to have the map installed
Alerted civillian elves(the ones making the presents) will NOT sound the alarm (this feature was added on purpose)

UPDATES:This mod is not self-updating, so make sure to check back to the website sometimes.

BONUS:
You can hunt for the Secret Room when you have time, but to open it you need to solve this riddle, which leads you to the location of the thing that opens the Secret Room's entrance:
06210311 07180122092025

CHALLANGES:

Simple Does Not Mean Easy: Complete the heist on any difficulty.

High Voltage: Secure all loot of the Secret Room on the One Down difficulty.

I Am Not Doing This For The Money...: Kill all enemies (except ones that are outside the map) without the alarm going off, and complete the heist successfully.

A True Ninja: Complete the heist on the One Down difficulty

Houdini: Complete the heist on the One Down difficulty without killing anyone or alerting anyone

+Patriot:I will think about it, but I havent added loot drop yet to make the game higher ON PURPOSE. But I can see your point, I will think about it.

12-31-2017, 07:51 PM
+[b]Dribbleondo-Van-Pelt: "[/b]CreateTexture call failed." Its a texture issue, that I am trying to fix, no success yet. BUT I HAVE GOOD NEWS TOO: You can solve this by following some simple steps.     "Direct3D could not allocate sufficient memory to complete the call." means that your memory overflew. BUT if you use the "LOW" texture setting option, then the memory should not overflow, and after the game is fully loaded (you can see your chararacter's arms and etc.) you can set it higher(LOW->MEDIUM/HIGH) in the options menu (Options/Video/Advanced/Texture).

 I get this error message when attempting to play the heist.
Was really looking forward to playing this heist, but alas, an error occurred:
 Application has crashed: C++ exception
    Could not load texture because IDirect3D9::CreateTexture call failed.
    Direct3D could not allocate sufficient memory to complete the call.

You can add an additional loot secure point at the back of Santa's workshop, because playing solo and making lots of presents it's tiring to carry them all the way to the van. It can even be throwing presents through the window to the pickup next to the workshop or unblocking the loot secure point at the back of Santa's workshop as it is in the default version for loud.

9/10 nice work

+Everyone: Difficulties have been balanced! Difficulties under one down have been made more easy, while One Down gives you the same realistic ninja experience as before. :)

+Pimp Whiskers:
Tips:
If you have trouble with cameras, you can disable them for 1 minute with ECMs(2x30sec), and you can also loop 1 camera at a time.
If you find it hard in X difficulty, then try it in lower difficulties.In this map, it will change the HP of the enemies only, but you can easily clear a map full with 40 HP(on normal difficulty) enemies, with a good-concealment assault rifle  combined with a little bit of ECM rush, it isnt that hard.But in One Down, only a true ninja can compete...
Note:This is a map that is meant to be hard(in overall)...

Maybe make the heist a little bit easier. Mainly because if you kill one guard then another cam and person will see and blow the entire operation. And the fact that almost none of the guards move make it even more frustrating. 

12-14-2017, 12:10 AM
Ok no nevermind that did work. I apologise for wasting your time!

+Youtubers:Feel free to make a video about this map if you wish, it would be really nice to see some cool videos. Suprise me! :) Maybe also I can learn something new with my 2000 hours. :D

+Pimp Whiskers:Well, for me, it runs perfectly with maximum graphics and maximum everything settings.But you can try to run it after set all settings to minimum.
You might have a weak PC, or you are missing something from the previous comment I wrote:

("Do you use any other mods apart from this one? It should not make it crash, but there is a little chance it does. So try temporarily removing your other mods.(Move them to an other folder, like e.g. to a folder on your desktop.)
If it still doesnt fix it, then problems are most likely with your modding equipment a.k.a. BLT and Beardlib.
You need the LASTEST BLT, and the OLDER Beardlib version that I have appended.
You need Windows 7, or later to make BLT work correctly.
Make sure to use the lastest BLT's IPHLPAPI.dll.
Make sure you’ve installed the x86 2013 C++ Runtime . Clicking here will redirect you to PD2 BLT's x86 download mirror.")

As MiamiCenter said:

"turn your graphics settings to middle, but when you're in heist, you can switch back to high"
I have never experienced this problem in my end, but if it is true, you can just set everything to minimum, and if you want better textures, set it higher after the game fully loaded(when you see your character's arms, not in the ready-up state).

Extra: I have asked a few of my friends, who have weak PCs(made in 2004-2005), to test my map, and it worked perfectly for them! (except for the long loading time :)  ) So I think problem is on your side sadly. :( I can not help you more with this, sorry. :(

+Skyfry428:Everything is easy IF you know how to do it.You just need to figure out how to do it. Good luck ;) :)

I do have many other mods, but the strange thing is even when i uninstall all of them, only having BLT and Beardlib, it still crashes, i don't even know what to do at this point.

12-13-2017, 12:24 AM
Hardest stealth map ever. Those guards at the main entrance, combined with the civs, make it nearly impossible to get in. I know the way you're supposed to go in, but to get out is another story

12-12-2017, 06:50 PM
Ahh, don't even try to run this map on maxed graphics settings...
https://pastebin.com/iATkzhCr
If you're crashing with the same reason, just turn your graphics settings to middle, but when you're in heist, you can switch back to high xD Weird... (Maybe if you remove some textures this crash won't happen, but you're the map maker, not me xd)
