Snobel managed to raise TDS property limit from 60k to 1 million! http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=139684&page=2&p=2400716&viewfull=1#post2400716
AndersonOk, technically there's a dagger in T3 but you get the idea, they made it in such a way that it won't feel clunky to fight in T3, whereas it does in TDM (clunkier than T1/T2 unfortunately).

JudithWeapon animations are not a problem, movement animations are. That sharp twitch every time you press any of WASD keys. Also neither T2 nor TDS have mouse smoothing, which also makes turning around feel a bit jerky. TDM is smooth as butter in all these aspects.

Judith@Stumpy – TDS materials were made in 3dsmax material editor, devs supplied 3dsmax plugins they wrote for that in T3Ed install. It would be great if someone could rewrite them for Blender, although I think some standalone app would be better.

Woken up at 12:30 AM by the sound of a jack hammer outside. Who needs to sleep anyway?
Bikerdudeif you live in a residentials area, then this would be illeagal.

OrbWeaverI suppose it might be allowed in certain emergencies, such as if some houses have lost power and water and they need to dig a hole to fix the problem.
Sep 14 2018 07:11 AM
kanoYeah I called the cops and they said not only that someone else was on the line complaining about it, but it was a genuine emergency with the gas lines, so there was nothing they could do about it.

Feels like a month since I've touched DR, real life is so busy... If you're waiting on my next FM, I feel you, sometimes it feels I'm waiting on myself too...
SiyahParsomenWell, only fan mission that I'm waiting is yours. It's a bit sad to hear you haven't touch DR for months, but real life is the top priority always. I can wait for next summer to see how you managed that stunning environment lighting.

BienieI feel the same way sometimes! Sometimes I hit a snag, and it can stops my will to map for weeks.
Sep 08 2018 02:50 PM
DragoferYes, unfortunately TDM mapping isn't really something you can do continuously. But once you do get back again it'll be with fresh vigour and creativity.

Back to fixing bugs for a little while. A whole day to find a tiny little missing 'else' statement. Gotta love it.
SeriousToniGlad somebody finally found it! :)

I put the ancient sticker on the new computer build, and the new sticker on the one with ancient parts inside, so that if a thief breaks in who knows about computers, he'll steal the wrong (old) one, instead of the good one. Ryzen is running in a 16 year old case with an Athlon XP sticker on it... lol
freykDumb thief: if its shiny and feels modern, he steals it. Smart thief: looks inside the case and steals it.
Aug 27 2018 01:17 PM
ObsttorteAnd if he has a magical back like in TDM, he will probably steal both. And any sylverware he can find ;)
Aug 28 2018 04:14 AM
stumpythey'll spend 2 to 4 minutes taking what they can sell then leave. If its too big or heavy they wont take it.

Encoded ~2,100 flac songs to opus in 10 minutes on this 8-core system. :)
kanoIt could be made to go even faster though. If I could offload the flac decoding onto the graphics card and just use the CPU for the Opus encoding, that would speed things up some more. There is a FLAC encoder/decoder for the GPU floating around...
Aug 25 2018 09:19 AM
jaxaAs good as lossless FLAC can be, you probably aren't going to hear a difference between it and 256-320 kbps MP3. So my question is: What was the Opus bitrate?
Aug 25 2018 04:09 PM
kano128k. It is for use on a cell phone, and it sounds great for being only 128k (Opus is amazing).

For Honor (base game without add-ons) is free on steam till 27th.
SiyahParsomenIt's not free weekend. Once you redeem it, it is yours to keep forever.

Here in the US, we're all about the $. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/08/22/verizon_throttled_departments/
AndersonCome visit Moldova. We have unlimited bandwith and unlimited internet traffic for a fixed price (something like 15 $ per month).

kanoOh yes, these "strict limits" on bandwidth in America are nothing but marketing at work. Tel-Cos make money hand over fist, to the point that they could easily provide us all with quality and affordable service. My guess is they spend more money paying off politicians and on coke than they do improving the networks they run.
Aug 23 2018 08:20 PM
kanoAnyway, Verizon should be prosecuted for "interfering with emergency services", and sued by everyone who was affected by the fire.
