TDM - What Are You Working On?

Recommended Posts

Well it's pretty much dead in here for what ever reason so I thought maybe it'd be nice to have a discussion of what people are working on. Be it a campaign or just something cool you've created in Doomedit...

 

I don't really have anything to show you guys right now. Only just started using the editor in the last few days and scanning through some Natural Trust books I've aquired to get some inspiration for architecture. Messing with various arrchways and structures... maybe I'll take some shots in the week :)

 

So, what are you guys planning?

It's dead on the outside but it's a totally different story on the inside B) I'd rather not give anything away so I'll just say the wait will be worth it x 10 ;)

Heh, I wasn't too clear in my first post really.

 

What i mean was, we know you guys are busy doing what you do, a search on the doom3world forums gives quite a few clues to how things are going ;) I was merely appealing to non group members who are interested in using the tools upon release... to hear their ideas :)

So just that you know I've not been sitting around doing nothing, I'll show you some of my work (which did, in fact, involve a lot of Sitting Around but not much of Doing Nothing)

 

More architecture

some new textures

a light emitting gemstone

Nice work. The images are a bit dark, so I have to wait untiul evening to fully appreciate them. :) What I can see looks good though.

Bob, you know you can take screenshots from within the game, by typing "screenshot" at the console?

 

You get much better results that taking screen grabs of the editor preview window.

 

even quicker is F11 :)

I'm longing for a nostalgic Thief experience again. Everything looks superb, and I've recently ventured into the screenshots section and stumbled across some alluring map screen shots. From what I can gather, they really seem to capture the mood in a perfection that I did not expect.

 

Out of curiousity, will The Dark Mod feature the atmospheric "entrance noise" that is played when the player enters a mission, or at least something very similar to it? Or will the map makers need to enable this themselves? It really sets the mood.

That sort of thing would be up to each individual map author, although such a sound effect will be probably be available for use in the core editing package.

Of course :)

Here are my first attempts. For the moment I learn how Darkradiant manages the architecture and the lights. It's my first step with this editor. Do not look at excess near the textures alignment or the lighting effect, I still have things about them to learn.

 

I would like to make a mini mission to understand how the editor works with the AIs, Objectives, triggers possibility, etc.

 

In fact what you're seeing is is my base of test :)

Looks like you're the woman for the job! Those wimpy test shots already look great!

Wow, especially first screenshot is beautiful! It's simple but very atmospheric. I'm pretty sure we can expect very good maps made by you in soon future!

There were only three shots while I was writing my post, so it's nice surprise to see them more. :)

I just want to add, that I like your screenshots, cause you treat them like photography - you think about composition and light while taking them. F.e. that one with guard and chair in the foreground.

Your first test, eh? :blink:

 

I could cry, because they are so beautiful. :) I could spend months and still wouldn't manage to get something as this, out of the editor. I'm really glad you joined. :)
