Mirror, Mirror - The Dark Mod Forums (5341 words)
It is possible to make the Dark Mod world similar to TDS' and yet still make it interesting and original on its own account, and to be perfectly honest I'd be less interested if it matches Thief too closely.
Some aspects of the Dark Mod can't help but be identical, such as the elemental arrows, while others are general enough to not be an issue.
The setting in The Dark Mod does resemble Thief, and no one will deny that this project's purpose is to bring the game into fashion with the technology of today.
