I currently don't have Internet at home and I'm rather busy, but I'll be back soon. Wishing you guys and gals all the best and I hope you're having a nice summer. :-) Wait for me, I won't be long.

    I haven't even begun this year's vacation, haha. Too much unfinished work. :-) But now I'm back and as soon as the site completes its necessary maintenance, I'll be visiting a lot more often once again.

Now I'm sad. TheMasterFoundry has cancelled his channel, even though he had some very good TDM content there. :( His Training Mission playthrough was probably the best, bar none. A pity we've lost those vids.

Ambients database completed. I'll continue to work on the other not yet finished databases and vocal script overviews. We already have a lot more non-tutorial documentation archived than just half a year ago.

    Thank you. Is the playability of the audio samples straightforward enough ?

I'd like to make an Ambients database that lists all the ambient assets currently available in TDM, for mapping purposes. I would like to ask whether it would be all right to use some public sound storage and playback site (e.g. SoundCloud, maybe ?) to upload short samples of these ambients ? As previews for the database overview. Feedback on this idea needed !

    I do have some info on the customs assets already offered here on the site and recommended external sites, but those are wholly separate articles, established almost a year ago.

    Here's the repository of addon audio assets (sounds, ambients, etc.): http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Sound_addons_repository Only stuff that is not in the base game, for the sake of interested mappers.

    http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Ambient_Database Here's the current version of the database. No sound samples yet, that needs to be negotiated and thought about first. If there have been any additions to the ambient .pk4s in 2.06 and 2.07, feel free to expand the DB.

Still working on the vocal sets documentation project. Don't worry. I'll start porting it to the wiki in November. In the meantine, I also have an additional TDM documentation project on the side. Still a lot of work with it, but it's progressing well.

    So, here's the current state: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Vocal_scripts_overview I'm still improving the formatting, for better readability. If there are any updates that are necessary for 2.06 or even 2.07, feel free to let me know.

I've been working on creating transcripts for the vocal sets we currently have. A few finished ones will be posted to the wiki, soon. Keep patient.

    There are places where I reused lines (or parts of them) in multiple places, but the scripts are all complete. I'll track them down.

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.

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.

    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. :-)
