@ nitrousoxide - Wow, thanks a lot on the rating, man. I appreciate the feedbacks, I must say I'm also pretty satisfied with the way I got back into the story after that big break. I'm currently considering a lot of possibilites for the third chapter, so stay tuned smile.gif

@ Zizo - Thanks on the compliments and the high rating, man biggrin.gif I'm glad it made such an impact on you. And yeah. Will may work for (I don't want to spoil the story for people who haven't played the missions yet) but you know who, but I wanted to make him the opposite of what people would think of a character like that - I wanted to make him an independent and smart person. However, aside from Shane who's not so much creative when it comes to adapting to a certain situation, you can also see that everyone else involved is also very careful and skilled in any given situations (Such as the problem in the casino during the heist, Miles - Will - Nick confrontation in the first chapter etc.) smile.gif

Anyway, stay tuned for the upcoming missions of chapter 3. smile.gif

Update: 20th (FINAL) mission is uploaded. Soon I'll upload a ZIP file with all the missions in it so it would be easier to download. I won't upload a ZIP file of the third chapter since it's only 4 missions in it and it's not needed.

Thanks to everyone who have been following this mission series, I hope you've had a great time while playing it. I've had a lot of fun creating it and I hope at least the big majority of you will hit me up with the feedback on the complete series after you've finished it smile.gif

Wow. That's probably first MP of yours I played, that's without happy ending. Everyone involved in the case gets killed or ends behind the bars. I just wonder what happend and what was in that case...

Anyway, planning of a new one yet or you're busy?

Yeah, I thought a lot about the ending, I had done like 4 scenarios and then I decided to go with that one smile.gif Well, the case left stashed in a place only Will knows where exactly. Since he's dead, there is no way of knowing or ever finding out where it is. And the case was a so-called ''McGuffin'' - Something that everyone wants, but at the end of the story, the audience doesn't really find out what that actually is. So, I let you all use your own imagination and have your own perception of what was in it wink.gif

Um, actually no. My college year starts soon, so I don't really have any plans for a new mission pack. I probably won't start anything new until next year. But, if something really good comes to my mind, I could start it then, but I'm not sure yet smile.gif

Well, the circle is because the whole plot is kinda going in a circle with all the stuff that's been going on (killings, tricks etc.). Then I wanted to add an adjective that would show how complex that circle really is. Since Platinum is considered far more rare and appreciated in the world than Gold or Silver, so I thought it would give me the boost to the metaphore that I needed smile.gif

Yeah, I stated at the start that the skeleton for the first and second mission is somewhat similar to the Tale of Jack Frazer, but after the first two missions, the mission pack is completely different than The Tale of Jack Frazer wink.gif

The ending was spectacular. I liked the animation on this one. It was kinda sad the way it had to end. Though i didn't like how we had to climb a spiked wall using badly placed crates to enter.

Rating: 9.5/10

Anyway, since you mentioned 4 possible scenarios, is there a chance of making multiple endings?

Hey, thanks on the feedback and almost a max rating, I really appreciate that, man smile.gif I'm glad you liked the ending so much smile.gif

About the climbing, I made it that way for a purpose. In reality it's very hard to make that jump and with the guard walking beneath you, it's a situation where you get only one shot of jumping. It's possible to jump on the roof in only one way and that's standing on the spike fence near the boxes to get the lift you need wink.gif


About the 4 possible scenarios. When I finished the whole plot from top to bottom (somewhere in the middle of chapter 2), I had 4 possible ways of re-directing the story. Specifically, mission 15 was the choosing point and for that reason, there is no possibilty of multiple endings since the story would have to change all the way from mission 15 to the end. Primary reason was Nick's character. I was in a big dillemma about either killing him or letting him live, I chose the first option and that eliminated 2 of the possible scenarios and endings which would've included either Nick coming for a revenge on Ethan which would result with Ethan being killed not by Cobalt, but by Nick and the scenario where Nick would be the only one left alive and not caught (revenge on both Ethan and Jack by calling the cops to arrest all of them). But, those are very big scrambles right now and I could talk about the possible scenarios for a long time, but yeah.. The 4th scenario could be somewhat put in this story cause I was in a dillemma whether or not I should let anyone else besides Brock live, but that would change the story to some point in at least one of the mission between 15 and 20.

Just finished the chapters 2 and 3 some minutes ago.
Rating Chapter 1: 10/10
Rating Chapter 2: 8/10
Rating Chapter 3: 10/10

"At the end, it's every man for himself"
That's a very good description for this MP. icon14.gif

As usual, the cutscenes are amazing, and the story is very good.
"The Platinum Circle" does not ends like your other MPs. 7 guys dead and the last one in prision.
I didn't see that coming.
I can not say anything bad about the MP. It is amazing. Great job, Jimmy cookie.gif cookie.gif


And like you let us guess what was in the case, I'll take a shot
DYOM v8?

One last thing:
"Shane, you whore.
You're a whore.
And your mother was a whore.
And her mother.
And your father used to turn tricks at the gas station cause he was a whore too

lol.gif

@Alex - Wow, thanks for a very long feedback and for almost a perfect rating for all 3 chapters smile.gif I'm glad that you liked it so much, man smile.gif Well, I tried to be as unpredictable as I could. Fortunately, the plot did let me do just that smile.gif

Yeah, maybe it was DYOM V8 biggrin.gif

Hahaha, yeah wink.gif

Nailed it. Now, I gotta say, Jimmy, that this mission pack is probably the most complex, with the most twists and controversies, and with the most interesting and surprising endings of yours. Man, I had some fun playing it through and watching one character die after another . You have perfected yourself, man.

Comparing to other mission packs of yours, this is probably the best (I didn't play Swiping Kings and Swiping Kings: The Sequel though). The only con of it is TOO MANY DAMN CUTSCENES. I mean, seriously, this mission pack lacked gameplay like no other.

And I know what was in that case, since Jack and Ethan wanted it so bad -
their sex tape . That actually explains everything - if anyone else would get it, he could blackmail both brokers and just make them give all their money in exchange of case's contents.

But really, there could be anything in that case - from
Jack's and Ethan's sex tape, in what I actually believe to perpetuum mobile or even a little hydrogen bomb . God knows...

I hope that you're not going to leave for a long period of time again and make us wait for another masterpiece.
