BoundsTrigger demo & tutorial
A demo mission created by pbucko that demonstrates how to use BoundsTriggers. Bound.txt contains a tutorial that discusses BoundsTriggers and their use (aimed at Thief2, but should work in Thief1).
Note the demo mission is not darkloader ready: you must load it into dromed!

Dromed Map tutorial for The GIMP
How to make maps for DromEd in The GIMP, originally by Savage, converted to pdf by qolelis. Note that the tutorial contains a link to a blank maps zip that was hosted on Salvage's old website, but that file no longer exists (not even in the Wayback Machine). I recommend that you look at Vigil's Thief II blank maps instead.
