As it's spring, it's only fitting I'd do some spring cleaning at our YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd-Aq3Jm6gzYbNiC7TVz2qA Hopefully you'll find the refurbishment worth it. I think the place does look much more like an official community channel now.

    Thank you all. It was a hectic Saturday evening, but the result is well worth it.

Peaceful Easter holidays to everyone. I'll try to organise some sort of a work group for us "messing around with the GUI and .lang files" types. :-P Grayman think it's a good idea, so I might give it a shot. At least putting a group together for now, that would be a good start.

An awful, shameful political crisis in my country. Things have come to a head. However, I hope all these massive revelations will provoke change. The people finally seem encouraged to make a difference. Hopefully, they will. Whenever I won't be foaming at the mouth over the whole sorry situation, I'll keep working on my TDM projects.

    And apparently by the Calabrian Ndrangheta itself?

    Melan: Yeah, it's become abundantly clear that the whole government has some mafia ties. Appaling stuff. All the more that they're refusing to leave and allow for early elections ! Ridiculous.

Noticed some heating issues with my GPU this evening. If it repeats and I am forced to have it repaired, I will let you know. I will also attempt to upload the translation files ASAP, just to be sure (in case things could take longer).

    It seems to be stable now, so maybe it was just a false alarm. I'll keep you posted if anything changes. Rest assured, what I'm still working on for TDM this month will be made public, either way.

    @Petike, regarding your GPU you have a pm. As there will be a few things we can do to fix the overheating issue as long as it isn't h/w failure.

A full Slovak translation (as full as possible right now) for 2.06 is nearly finished. The monastery mission is still being worked on, and I will also make and release a smaller FM before it, for both level building practice and storytelling reasons.

    Scratch that (partly). It seems the two official missions will probably have to remain without an l10n pack for the foreseeable future. Pity, but it's not something I can directly influence. :-( However, I plan to do l10n for other missions, with their authors' permissions.

Working on that monastery mission in March, but got back to it only recently and making some substantial progress. Still at the rough building phase. Will probably make another mission that will get published before the monastery one (due to story reasons). I want to make my missions a continuous story.

    Thank you, guys. I certainly will keep at it, but I'm also pressed to finish my translation project first. I'd like to get it out before the 2.06 update, if possible.

I finally have a concrete idea for my debut mission. Builder monasteries and fish ponds are involved as the backdrop. (Also, my planned protagonist gets introduced, as well as a new TDM-verse town.) Now to iron out the objectives developments and the plot twists to the basic storyline...

    Excellent! My advice for new mission authors is always the same: start with a small mission.

    Sorry for such a late reply, but yeah, I intend the first mission to be fairly small. A single building complex of monastic Builders, with two or three smaller outdoor areas (a cloister, a herb garden, a larger garden with fish ponds). Nothing bigger. Now that I've gained some experience in DR and I'm gaining editing confidence, I feel more comfortable posting this, as I'll start work on the FM soon. :-)

Probably going to set up DR before Christmas. High time to learn some basic mission building...

On Sunday morning, I dreamt a TDM dream. Yes, really. I was inside some city level with nice moody lighting. There were winding streets and regularly shaped courtyards paved with nothing but oversized square stone tiles. One courtyard had something like a chessboard-style arrangement of paving tiles with Roman numerals, and a mechanical contraption to go with it. This was apparently some kind of puzzle, but my dream-self couldn't figure out the specifics.

    The warehouse section of my FM was pretty much copied verbatim from a dream I had.

A rough list of FMs I've completed so far: Exhumed, Lockdown, The Tears of St. Lucia, Lockner Manor, Living Expenses, Mad's Mountain, Rightful Property, The Parcel, Flakebridge Monastery, Rake-off, Too Late, Thief's Den, Chalice of Kings, Siege Shop, Pandora's Box, The Outpost, Trapped !, Thieves, and all of Sotha's FMs exluding The Lich Queen's Demise. I've played a lot of other missions, but regrettably, haven't finished most of them yet.

Phew ! Problem solved ! Now I'll move on ASAP to working on the base missions. I hope I can finish and spellcheck them by October. It's high time.

OK, testing's postponed until I figure out what's happened to the generating via the perl script.

I'm pleased to announce that the remade GUI translation (updated for the current version) I've been working on is completed. Still testing it, but it seems to be as fine as before. I'll be moving on to porting the translation of the two base missions into the game files soon.

    Yeah, but I'll only be sending the whole translation for evaluation once I'm 100 % sure I've finished everything from the base game. If that turns out a success, I might move on to translating some of the other missions.
