Horns of Canso 2

Man, I wonder if that has a good story.

 

I mean I know the gameplay mechanics would be a miserable trip down limited lane...

And the graphics are dreadfully dated...

And you'd have to twiddle the fuck out of the game it's meant to run upon just to make it run on a modern computer...

 

But I wonder if it has a good story and some otherwise interesting gameplay?

That architecture is pretty inventive - organic construction from limited geometry. I like it.

Imagine if we had people, who are capable of creating such detailed and beautiful scenes with such an old engine, mapping for TDM.

Imagine the scenes they could create with modern technology.

 

The mere thought is exhilarating!

WOW, my favorite mapper :laugh:

 

Ciao Sterlino, sono contento di vederti qui :-)

 

Any hope to see your creative soul to use TDM for mapping in the future?

Looks great! Sometimes the limitations force creativity that might not otherwise have reared its head. I love going back and playing the older games because the designers came up with such ingenious ways of making the games. This is yet another example of how to do that. I'm downloading it now to play!

Give it a try. The editor, thanks to the hard work of greebo, is powerful and very intuitive, and the resource base is also growing slowly but surely.

I still cant play this mission, as for some reason the scripts arent running. Disabling windows defender and my anti-virus sw and running T2 as admin has no effect.

 

Fyi, I don't have to do any of the above for any other T2 mission so it must be the mission itself.

I agree, DR is the best ^_^

Nice to see you here.

 

Nicer to know you are playing some TDM FMs...

 

Nice to know you will "think on it"... as I suspect it will only be a matter of time before you realize... you must... get you some of this DR, this objectManipulating, ever-expanding, bookcaseClimbing, SneaksieSneaking, MissionBase goodness ahead of you and soon get dove in to get some behind you...

 

Come one.

Come all.

Dromed better then DR

DR is not integrated in engine,thats why is imposible make big level as HoC without edittor lagging

 

Dromed can build much bigger level than ANY dark mod mission

 

But DR is have more functions for architecture building


Proceed with caution!

If DR was not integrated into the engine, you could easily browse for material definitions that are not in the Root Doom 3 directory or Darkmod sub-directory. As it stands, DR only sees what Doom 3 sees.

 

AFAIK it hooks into Doom 3's native editor directly.

 

Integrating into the engine will not always reduce lag. If the editor were abstracted more it could use less performance intensive representations of the geometry which could be manipulated outside the all the framework overhead and then moved back to the in-engine context at the end for final review. The problem, of course, is that only 0.000000000000000000000000001% of the population knows how to code a 3d editor from scratch (which is about what it would take to abstract things this way).

 

I'm sure the Dev's will chime-in about why my guesswork is wrong :laugh:

There is no such restriction as Dromed's brush count, light count, object count or room brush count limit. There is one for the number of entities, but I take it it is changeable. In other words, the editor/mod are capable of handling enormous levels such as NHAT/2 or this one (a Komag experiment reproducing the layout of multiple Thief OMs).
