Prefab issue:

If you have only the "Thief's Den" alpha installed, you will likely get an error inserting the Prefab sky, as this asset is embedded in your Thief's Den installation.

Thanks to a handy suggestion from user, greebo:

"The map file is contained in the file thiefs_den.pk4 file, which is basically a ZIP file. Open it with WinRAR or 7-zip or something else and extract the file maps/ into your doom3/thiefs_den/maps/ folder."

WinRAR did the trick (after standard WinZip fell a little short). You must:

1. Unpack the map file as described above. 2. Create the "Prefabs" folder in your "Thiefs_Den" directory to store the prefab from the map. 3. Load the "" you just extracted in your editor (i.e. "DarkRadiant") 4. Locate the prefab in one of your views (far Northeast in your XY Top view) 5. Select the prefab in map. 6. Choose from the menu: File/Save Selected Prefab and save into your Prefabs folder

Please let me know if there are any mistakes in these additional instructions.

Oh no! There is no "E:\steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\thiefs_den\prefabs" in my "Thief's Den" mod installation (where Doom3 is installed through Steam). Has anyone else encountered this, or recommend where I can obtain this file?

My apologies if this is not the appropriate forum for this question...

It's usually best to ask such a question on the forum, you're lucky I'm even noticing this. :)

Prefabs weren't distributed along with thiefs_den, but you can always just create this folder in the thiefs_den/ root.
