    Me too! I recently played "Patently Dangerous" and it was so great to see what started off as a simple "steal some blueprints" mission into a murder mystery. Some TDM fan missions have more story then current AAA blockbusters !

    And tribalism; don't forget that. The "our side is virtuous and the other side can't be trusted" narrative does a lot of heavy lifting there too.

    Where can i find a version of the old watch, like the left one (with out the url?) Changed the back cover: screenshots, topics in labels, logo and some positions of objects.

    Created the frontcover concepts. Which logo do you prefer?

    I imagined and scribbled my own back-cover, using the thief 3 dvd-backcover as an example. (now i only need a better title and screenshots) See the attached sample. But i think other people can do better.

    Apologies for the new thread as this subject is presumably covered in detail here but there are so many threads it's hard to find my way around. I have a useful repertoire of accents and pretty good dramatic skills, and have often considered getting involved on this side of things. I also quite often think of new incidental utterings for the guards and lords etc, to add a bit of variety to the stock vocals. I have a little recording studio here, with Cubase Artist and good quality microphones. If someone could provide links to what I have to do to produce usable audio files for Dark Mod, I might well find some time to get into it.

    Right, it does not send anything to GPU but see my OP - it makes the CPU do too much constant work when it filters the stages to decide if it has to send anything.

    Actually, i'd retreat from my former point a bit, and say that the kind of thinking (flat earth and stuff) is actually something which isn't totally extincted yet. When you look back in time, people believed all kinds of things, which weren't explicable. The fact that we should know better these days surely has a point, but, i don't expect stupid ideas and thinking to have completely died out. Yet.

    But of course, only a REAL idiot can't understand this is all about trolling the wannabe-debunkers. AntiVax (or other health-related "concerned citizens") are fear-induced brainwashed people but I suspect someone is pulling the strings in those communities too....

    I would rather say it's a complete mistrust in knowledge which humanity gathered for hundreds of years. Or a total lack of education. You have that literally everywhere these days. Especially in politics. Or, also, in parenting. People think that common knowledge, which is passed over by former generations is obsolete, and make their own rules, which are half baked, and not properly thought through. Imagine we would be indigenous people, living in the wild. We wouldn't survive a day without knowledge which has been passed by our ancestory.

    The common element behind all of these insane conspiracy theories is an extreme mistrust of authority, especially the government. They believe the Earth is flat because the government are lying about satellites and space exploration. They believe vaccinations are a secret government plot to spread autism. They believe aircraft are spreading chemtrails as part of a government plot to control the population with drugs. They believe school shootings are faked in order to give the government an excuse to confiscate guns. Etc. That's not to say that I particularly trust or respect authority figures or governments, but mainly because they are useless grandstanding idiots, not Machiavellian schemers who can successfully dupe entire populations.

    One of the guys at TTLG runs a Flat Earther website. For him the whole thing is a massive troll, which is what I kind of always suspected is true for most of them. But if you're going to do it, you have to go all the way with it. The more outlandish the theory the better. There might be a few of them that are serious, but I bet most of them are trolls. I wish I could say the same about anti-vaxers, but they're all dead serious.

    Nice try, but Japan is way too far away from the great wall of ice. Also, the portal there only leads further north. There is nothing of interest there - only wildlings and the undead.
  19. 1 point
    there's secret portals in certain area's of the ice wall that allow you to warp to the other side of the world, japan used one of those warps to get to pearl harbour in two days. polynesians have been using those portals for years to travel all around the pacific.

    Kurshock, you ought to just make one mega-thread, call it Kurshock's Thoughts or something like that, and then you can pile all of your thoughts into it as they come to you. I think you'll get a better response. The thing is there's not much discussion you can have with this -- just a comment or two admitting, yeah, that would be something -- which is a bit much for a whole thread but okay for a post or a few in a mega-thread. That said, that is an intriguing set up. Just in terms of map design, it'd be interesting to have the snowy landscape, more supernatural & monster elements than usual, and the way I'd envision it, you could map the "end of the world" as basically starry sky box all the way down & under the edge of a cliff, with maybe a few hovering meteriods. That could be a cool sight.

    I scripted a map (as part of the campaign I wrote) that included a necromancer's mansion. But interestingly I didn't think to include necromanced guard animals... He was a noble and trying to keep his practice secret, so he kept it all in a dungeon part. But now that you mention it, it's an obvious thing that he'd have necromanced monsters down there and would be good for gameplay.The catch of course is that we don't have the models for them. But at the very least he should have zombies down there. My first idea if I spread out from there would be zombie dogs and maybe one zombified werebeast as a boss-type of monster. Beyond that you're getting beyond what's added value for gameplay. With all of your ideas, you ought to write some TDM fan fic and make some stories with them... It's a lot easier to imagine scenarios and write them out than model and animate them!

    That's why I offered posting the whole workflow here, just to have better understaning how it works (and in case you wanted to make models yourself). It's not that straightforward in case of .ase models. Btw. you can't apply materials to an .ase model for DR and TDM, if you don't manually edit it in notepad. So the first order of business would be making a material for a model and then pasting it in proper section in .ase model. LWO works in a different manner.
  25. 1 point
    Yup, you need to have a project folder (fms/yourfmname) with DR pointed to that folder as well. Then your folders will generally mimic the folder structure of TDM, or you can have fewer folders for faster access. You need "materials", "models", and "textures" folder inside your fm folder to make it work. Assuming you put everything there and you're using .ase model which was exported correctly with assigned bitmap, you need to edit it with notepad, and look for *MAP_DIFFUSE section. Paste the material path in the BITMAP section, but use "//base/" prefix, e.g. //base/textures/etc.
  26. 1 point
    I don't think he's talking about making models, just adding ones that have already been made but aren't part of the core assets.
  27. 1 point
    It depends a bit on your modeling software. You'll probably use .ase models, as .lwo isn't supported in popular modeling apps. For .ase there is actually a particular workflow you should follow, depending on your needs, and for stuff like multiple materials or shadow / collision meshes. I have that in my notes, let me know if you need it, so I'll post it here. Btw. you don't need any defs for just using models. Defs are for more complicated stuff, like assigning lamp model to a light etc.

    Hello all' taffers, I have printed the_hammer_medium2.lwo with my 3d printer: Material is transparent and unfinished, and I'm still unsure whether to paint it grey or gold.

    This is a list of all Animations (human, 3rd person) needed for TDM. It provides both a list of what we would ideally like to have for TDM 1.0, as well as a guideline to future animations after release. Currently I'm only tracking the animations used with our default skeleton, as all our humanoid AI should eventually use that skeleton, and therefore the same list of animations (some characters, like zombies, would be an exception). The first number indicates how many animations already exist and have been exported to the proguard and similar models. The second number indicates how many versions of the animation we would like to have for the 1.0 release. Obviously it's better to have at least one version for each animation before working on alternative versions. ***NOTE: This list should now be up to date for our new skeleton as of May 01, 2009*** ** entries with stars beside them are not essential for 1.0, and should wait until after release.

    As I've mentioned in the ticket, I'm a fan of option 2 since it folds every new feature into ones already in the editor, without adding new ones. I agree about new user visibility however and I believe nowhere is it written that you can press shift to constrain the rotation widget (or unconstrain the new model scale one for that matter). Another button to the top or sidebar could be added, like the one for snapping rotation origin to grid. The amount of buttons is already plenty though, with this change I could happily see the X/Y/Z axis rotate buttons on the sidebars go away and that would free up some space. I still know some people use them, however. Personally I'm leaning towards the rotation and scale dialogue because I have it bound to a shortcut key and I remember it doesn't have a default one. Perhaps putting in a default binding and advertising it as this new dialogue (even though it isn't) where you can input your angles for the rotation widget on release would inform people. As greebo said, please weigh in as it's more or less just me theorizing here. I remember at least two other people mentioning this but I don't remember names. Kingsal, perhaps? Epi? NeonsStyle? I dunno.

    For my comming modern-time themed FM "The Dark Mission", i would like to add modern weapons. The weapon that I have in mind is the Fort 12 from RWM Pack c (a replacement for d3 pistol) (And when it is working, i'm going to change the object, so it doesnt use proprietary sound, textures, etc.) At this moment i only can spawn the weapon and cannot pick it up or use it . The console show some things that the weapon needs, but cannot find it in the d3 pak files. I hope you can help me. I installed the weapon by copying RWM_Pack_æ.pk4 (from rwmpackc) and pak001,2,3,4 and 8 (from d3) to the folder of my fm. my log spawning and giving the fort 12 (replacement for pistol) Weapon in action: .

    A long, long time ago, I started working on the script for a "Schemer" character; someone who could work as a sophisticated crime boss, corrupt merchant or sinister nobleman. Someone who is a bit like Ramirez from Thief, Edmund Blackadder (although only as comic as TDM in general), or a Shakeaspeare villain - erudite, a bit pretentious, and rotten to his core. We have a few noble sets, but this is a niche that I believe still deserves filling. It is quite hard to write a full vocal set, so it took years to complete, but it is here now, and I submit it for your consideration and feedback.

    Below is an updated list of all the barks existing in current scripts. This should be used as a base for any new scripts. Syntax is: Line Title: ["sound def name"] Actor direction filename, "example line" x suggested # of lines Total Lines: approx 270 (including grunts and coughs) Sound files should be in .wav format, mono, 44100 project rate, ================================================================================================= Tone and Attitude Dialogue should be generally modern, North American English, but with a slight renaissance flavour. The more educated the character, the more renaissance-speak is appropriate. Avoid modern-sounding words and phrases (eg, "What's up?" "Roger that" or "I'm going to kick your ass"). But at the same time, this isn't Shakespeare--the dialogue has to sound fairly natural to modern English speakers. AI Characters In order to create a variety of character types, vocal sets will be created for various "characters". A character, in this sense, is a distinctive voice, personality, and way of speaking. ================================================================================================= AI STATES: Relaxed Relaxed, Idle: ["snd_relaxed"] You're relaxed and going about your regular business. You aren’t expecting any trouble. You’re talking to yourself, so lines should be muttered in a low tone of voice, and punctuated with sighs, pauses and mumbling. idle01 "*sigh* A few more hours to go…." x10 Throat clearing/ coughs x3 Sighs x2 (you’ve had a long day) Humming and/or whistling an idle tune x2 Sneeze x1 Relaxed, Armed: ["snd_relaxed"] You're an armed character, probably a guard on patrol. You’re not expecting any trouble, but are ready to defend yourself if necessary. You are muttering to yourself about your shift or other combat-related concerns. idle_guard01 "Hmm, I’ve got a bad feeling about this shift.” x3 Sleeping: ["snd_sleeping" ] You're fast asleep and dreaming. A few snores, maybe a mumbled word or two. sleeping01 x2 Reacting to World: ["snd_reaction" ] ["snd_state3"] You are relaxed, and have just looked at something non-suspicious, like a book, or a playing card, or your reflection in a mirror. You make a grunt or comment, either pleased or not. Currently these lines are used primarily for AI playing cards—they make a comment after looking at their new card. They should be delivered without too much emotion. reaction01 “Aww.” [annoyed] x4 AI STATES: Alert These barks are meant to tell the player that the AI has seen or heard something. Observant: ["snd_alert1" ] ["snd_notice_generic"] You notice something subtle but aren’t sure what it is. Doesn't seem like anything serious. You are talking to yourself, so you should not be particularly loud and may trail off. to_observant01 "Hm?" x4 Observe a Sound: ["snd_alert1h" ] Same as above, only these lines refer specifically to a sound. to_observant_heard01 "What’s that sound?" x2 Observe a Sight: ["snd_alert1s"] Same as above, only these lines refer specifically to seeing something. to_observant_saw01 "Did I see something?" x2 Notice Something: ["snd_alert3" ] You notice something suspicious, and it caught your attention enough to warrant going over to check it out. You’re still not sure what it is, and you’re still mostly talking to yourself, but you're less casual now. to_searching01 "What's that over there?" x4 Notice A Sound: ["snd_alert3h" ] As above, you hear something loud enough to make you want to investigate. to_searching_heard01 "What’s making that noise?" x2 Notice A Sight: ["snd_alert3s" ] As above, you see a brief motion in the shadows. Better check it out just in case. to_searching_saw01 "What's that in the shadows….? “ x2 Notice A Sound, with company: ["snd_alert3hc" ] You're with friends and you hear something loud enough to make you want to investigate, even though it’s probably nothing serious. searching_heard_company01 "Listen, did you hear that? Let’s check it out." x2 Notice A Sight, with company: ["snd_alert3sc" ] You're with friends and you see a brief motion in the shadows. Probably nothing, but you should investigate. searching_saw_company01 "Did you see something over there?" x2 Settling Down: ["snd_alertdown0" ] You noticed something, but you haven’t found anything to worry about. It was probably nothing, and you’re going back to whatever you were doing. These lines are muttered to yourself. alertdown_to_idle01 "Hmmm, nothing now...." x3 Settling Down after hearing something: ["snd_alertdown0h" ] As above, but lines refer to hearing. Whatever it was is gone now. Go back to your business. alertdown_to_idle_heard01 “Just some wind." x3 Settling Down after seeing something: ["snd_alertdown0s" ] As above, but lines refer to seeing. You caught a glimpse of something moving, but it appears to be nothing. Moving on. alertdown_to_idle_saw01 "Just shadows." x3 Settling Down after noticing something suspicious: ["snd_alertdown0sus"] You saw something suspicious---an open door or a rope hanging down--and have searched the area. You can't find any intruder, but you're sure something is afoot. These lines are muttered to yourself. alertdown_to_idle_suspicious01 "Well, I don't see anybody, but something's not right." x3 Alerted by Something: ["snd_alert4NoEvidence"] You notice something that makes it clear that there's someone there, but you don't know exactly who they are. You don’t know for sure that there’s a threat, but you’re all business now, and your lines are directed to the mystery figure in the shadows. to_agitated_searching_noevidence01 “Let’s not have any trouble…come on out so I can see you.” x4 Alerted by Intruder: ["snd_alert4" ] You suddenly see or hear something that makes it clear there’s someone there, and you already have enough evidence to know that it’s an intruder. These lines are an aggressive challenge to the hiding enemy. to_agitated_searching01 "Hey, who goes there? Show yourself!" x4 Idle, On Guard: ["snd_alert_idle" ] You've seen an intruder or been told that there is one. You're on your regular patrol, but you’re no longer relaxed. You’ve got your weapon out, and you’re ready for trouble at a moment’s notice. You’re muttering to yourself. alert_idle01 “I’m ready for him.” x3 AI STATES: Searching Searching for Someone: ["snd_state4SeenNoEvidence" ] You’ve seen or heard enough to know that there’s someone around here, hiding. It might not be a threat, but if they’re hiding, then they’re obviously up to no good. You’re looking around for them.

The intruder is still here, so you point him out. gotten_help01 "See, just like I told you. Get him!" x1 Return too late with Help: ***** No Def Currently **** You went and got help, but by the time you got back the intruder was gone. You’re flustered and upset. gotten_help_gone01 "He was right here…look sharp, he’s probably hiding!" x1 COMBAT AND PURSUIT Spotted the Intruder, armed: ["snd_to_combat"] ["snd_to_combat_monster"] You have come face to face with the intruder.

You aren't seeing or hearing the intruder directly, but something that might be a sign that one was here earlier. Find Something Suspicious: ["snd_foundSuspiciousItem" ] You’ve noticed something unusual, like a rope hanging from a rafter, or a knocked over chair.

You’re talking to yourself. find_something_suspicious01 "Hmmm, that's not right." x4 Find a Weapon: ["snd_foundWeapon" ] There is a weapon lying on the ground.

You're expressing your displeasure. admonish_friend01 "Be careful, will you?" x2 Greetings Since greetings can be made to friends or strangers, delivery should be fairly neutral. Also, there's no way to know whether the AI have seen each other once or twenty times before greeting each other, so typical "hello" greetings should be limited in favour of casual comments or questions that can be answered 'yes'. Greetings are not exchanged between sitting characters, so assume that the greeting is a quick one as AI pass each other. Not every greeting is needed for every vocal character. The thug, for example, has special greetings for female characters because he's a sexist pig, but not every character needs those. Greeting, Generic: ["snd_greeting_civilian_to_civilian"] A generic comment or question as you pass someone.

You’re better than them, and your greeting conveys that. greet_to_inferior01 "Stand aside, you." x2 Greeting, to Inferior Guard: ["snd_greeting_noble_to_guard"] You’re high on the social ladder and see a guard. You greet them by evaluating their performance. greet_to_inferior_guard01 “Stay alert, man.” x2 Greeting, to beggar: ["snd_greeting_beggar"] You see a beggar. greet_to_beggar01 "Away with you."

Your response should be stiffer and more official. response_to_superior01 “Yes, sir.” x3 Response, Negative: **** No Def Currently **** You have been greeted by someone who is a social equal, and are responding to their question negatively. These should be delivered without much emotion. response_negative_1 “Not really.” x2 Conversation Question: ["snd_convo_question"] You strike up a casual conversation with a nearby friendly. These are used for mission-specific conversations set up by the mapper, and are not used by default. The questions must be evaluation questions, appropriate for "good/not good" style answers. (They may eventually be used for AI sitting next to each other for extended periods of time) convo_question01 "How's your day going?" convo_question02 "How was dinner?" convo_question03 "What do you think of this dress?" convo_question04 "How did you do in the game last night?" convo_question05 "How were the bear pits the other day?" Conversation Answer: ["snd_convo_answer"] This is an answer to the question above. The answers should all be of the "good/not good" variety. convo_answer01 "Not too bad, really." convo_answer02 "Ok, I guess." convo_answer03 "You don't want to know." convo_answer04 "Better than I thought, actually."

    How do you make that art? It looks like combinations of photographs and digital art, with some TDM textures thrown in? Those figures, for example, are they from photographic references?

    As someone once said, we don't take donations in money, but we happily accept donations of time. There are lots of ways to contribute ... most of all making an FM, then making assets (textures, models), doing fan art or writing fan fic, or commenting and being part of the community. We consider those kinds of things as donations.

    I did some digging, and it turns out I did write a script for a female pagan, or at least partially, back in 2010. It's not great, but it's something to work with (it's also a bit out of date, as we've added toour barks since then). Pagan female VOCALS Tone and Attitude The Dark Mod strives to have a somewhat dark, gritty, and believable tone. Characters should avoid dramatic clichés and dialogue that sounds like sitcom humour. Characters should react with genuine emotion and in ways that make sense given their personality and education level. Dialogue should be generally modern, North American English, but with a slight renaissance flavour. The more educated the character, the more renaissance-speak is appropriate. Avoid modern-sounding words and phrases (eg, "What's up?" "See you later" or "I'm going to kick your ass"). But at the same time, this isn't Shakespeare--the dialogue has to sound fairly natural to modern English speakers. AI Characters "The Pagan Woman” – poorly educated and rural; refers to old gods and mystical beliefs [AI Non-Alert States] These AI are idle; not doing anything in particular. They are bored and talking to themselves, so just like when people think out loud, the beginning and end of their dialogue will often trail off into mumbling. Relaxed: You're either not working or aren’t expecting any trouble. You’re relaxed and somewhat bored. Dialogue can be punctuated with sighs and muttering. Throat clearing/coughs x3 Sighs x2 (it’s been a long day) Humming a simple tune x2 idle_1 "’The dark lady hides her face from the moon this night." idle_2 "It is too late in the season to be so cold here. It chills the bone." idle_3 "I hope he brings back something to eat.” idle_4 "’There is nothing to be done about that. Nothing at all.” idle_5 "I keep forgetting to lay those out to dry. Now they’re going to be damp again. [sigh] " idle_6 “By the spirits, I thought this would be all over by now.” idle_7 “The wise one finds tongues in trees and sermons in stones.” idle_8 “”The blackbirds are silent tonight. That’s never a good sign.” Idle_9 “We need some rain soon, or the fields will all be bare.” Idle_10 “If it doesn’t rain, I’ll pick some more tomorrow…they will be almost ripe by now.” Idle_11 “I told her not to let them spoil. And what does she do? The girl has no sense at all.” "By his own hand. Ha. An embarrassment, to him and to his clan." Idle_5 "When we next cross paths I'll put an end to it. For good." Idle_8 "The raven disturbed me. It seemed anxious about something (, but what?)." Idle_shaman_1 “The stars light our path. There is great wisdom to be gained from them.” Idle_shaman_2 “Let the ancient wisdom guide you. The voices of our ancestors speak to us through many forms.” Idle_shaman_1 "Fire is a mysterious being; it warms our bodies and it burns our dwellings." Idle_shaman_2 "Will the dark lady heed my pleas? Even she seems to avoid this troubled corner." Idle_shaman_6 "The rat cannot defeat the hawk, but it feasts upon the hawklings.

    What would you guys think of having a choice of crossbow as well as the classic shortbow. It's very easy to inculde a crossbow choice as well. It's a purely asthetic choice of course, you won't get any advantage or disadvantage in gameplay from choosing either. I'd personally prefer the crossbow, I think it's much more of a utility weapon than the short bow ,and less awkward to carry around and squeeze through windows with as well.
