MelanIndeed, it is great that technical matters - which many of us find hard to understand - are presented so clearly and with so much useful detail.

Congrats on the release! Thanks to the team, once again, for their great efforts! Now, where do I get a babysitter so I can try this beast out without interruptions...?
FieldmedicBuy the kid some lego and teach him your modular building technique!

Its always funny when a product that is half the price gets a higher score on a benchmark test... Today, its some NiMH batteries.
kanoThe Eneloops are supposed to be 800mAh, but they only scored around 780. The far cheaper EBL batteries all scored over 800, something which none of the Eneloops reached!

BikerdudeI sincerely hope so Epi..

jaxa"We will ask ***new*** developers to complete a set of digital paperwork..." makes me hopeful that TDM will be grandfathered in.

We are now #89 out of 2386 games on SGL.. Woohoo..!
jaxaNah, I just wanted you to introduce me to supermodels.
Feb 08 2017 09:01 PM
vvGarrettvvFor years I`m telling scolars and friends who are interested in games from TDM. Since I can say: "Look!It`s on Steam-GL.", they are more impressed. They say:"Really?I`ve to take a look now." So.Yes.Being on Steam, even in GL obviously puts the game(mod) in the focus of people of which taken this one not so serious before. :D

SothaIf we are going to have an influx of new players with all this extra attention, perhaps someone should make a "recommended newbie FMs"-list, so that they start with good & friendly ones.

Remember kiddies, if you're not paying for a product, you *are* the product. Oh, nevermind; this is the 21st century, and you're still the product even when you pay for something. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/06/ftc_spanks_vizio_for_slurping_viewer_activity/
stumpyApparently the camera built into the xbone did something similar, but that just lets microsoft watch you in real time, on the sofa on in your bedroom, or in your kids room.

kanoThis is an example of why I won't buy anything that mandates an Internet connection to function. And just because they're not doing it today doesn't mean that e.g. EA, Valve, or Microsoft won't push out a mandatory update and start doing it tomorrow. For this reason, I see being forced to use some online service as ?putting myself on a leash?.

lowenzSo our player base is our product? :D

Been away for some time again and thought some mapping would be nice; Question from a modelling noob: Is it possible/an easy/quick task to select a bunch of models/func_statics in DR, export them to an external modelling software like Blender and then save it as one model and put it back to DR? This of course to save entities.
ObsttorteYou can export brush and patchwork using the DR ASE exporter. But you can't combine worldspawn and models.
Feb 09 2017 04:16 PM
FieldmedicOkay, but is it an easy task to (in Blender) to import the same model, say several bottles and then arrange them to look like a bunch of bottles, on the same z-plane and then save it as a unique model? Instead of using up several entities in DR...
Feb 10 2017 11:13 AM
EpifireYeah, you can totally do that with Blender easily. Though it can be slightly problematic to get smoothing right on a prop with a lot of hard edges. I've found you really just have to split edges manually for it to translate over correctly. Which can be kinda a pain if you don't use Blender often.

I'd been telling a couple people but ya'll need to check out the Dark Reader browser app if you wants the darker pages. Works flawless on 80% of the sites I see and can easily revert back and store which sites I exclude. Pretty handy, and great for long nights.
AndersonI use Turn off lights extension and change background page colour for Word 2003 for that purpose.
Feb 05 2017 06:23 AM
kanoAs a fan of dark themes, I always got in trouble when some website would override things and I would end up with white text on a white background. "Where is the article? I can't see it!"
