Dayport, December the 23.
A few days ago, Santa Claus was in town, his stay indeed should be just
a short duration. Already not all presents distributed, the Hammerites
seize up the old man. They accused him as a heretic and threatened with 
torture, if he did not leave the city right away. He left Dayport shortly 
after and was never seen again.

An unusual contract for Garrett, he shall procure the remaining presents.

If you open this FM in Dromed, you should optimize before you go in game!

The following textures are mine, you can use them, credits would be nice.

WINS(Fensterbunt.pcx, orangeklein.pcx, pureorange.pcx, Snoworange.pcx)

Win323Lsnow.pcx and Winwdsnow.pcx are Original Thief2 textures, I've 
just modified them.

For me, it was important, that the FM has a nightly atmosphere.
Otherwise not to darkly, you can't see a different between the textures. 
Settings for Gamma and Ambient Lights I made in the evening on a CRT.
Maybe you have to put the gammasettings higher or lower.
