A little late to the party.
Thank you very, very much to all past and current contributors. I do not have the faintest idea about the massive work all the contributors put into TDM to make it was it is today.
I never really understood how video game are being developed. Reading the tutorials and watching the vids from both Sotha and Springheel enabled me to do something I would not have imagined five years ago and with help from veteran contributors (especially grayman, ERH+ and Destined helped me a lot with technical problems) I was able to put out two missions. They are far from perfect, but, hey, I did it! (oh yeah!)
2019 provided us so far with great missions - among others there were Bienie's Precarious Position (it includes my new time all favourite intro area), ERH+'s unusual and creepy "Marsh of Rahena", Dragofer's latest marine mission (with stuning visuals!) and joebarnin's "Heart of Saint Mattis" (this one includes very appropriate allocation of the existing ambient sound files).
Just recently krrg released his first mission (I did not even know the user name) and other forum members have made great progress with their WIPs. I just looked into the WIPs from my partners in crime Jedi_Wannabe and Amadeus. Both have spent a lot of time on their maps and the WIPs look already very good (some areas look IMO even fantastic). I can't wait to see the final results.
Therefore let's hope for cool new missions from new and veteran contributors in the upcoming months!
