Thanks guys :-). The new FM will be a loose sequel to Requiem and will have two levels in it. When I can finish it will be determined by Real Life, but hopefully I can get it out to everyone around February. I'll let you know the closer it gets.

I haven't finished playing all TDM missions. But at this moment, this is my absolute favorite! That's because it's the mission with the best story and action, and the best sense of something going on. It actually felt like I played an entire original game (of Doom 3 length), not just a single mission for TDM.

 

Spoiler

 

Whether it's a sequel / prequel to this or something completely new, I can't wait for the next mission you will be making! You're very skilled at making not just good looking maps with good gameplay, but also giving missions a purpose and vivid or surprising elements.

Hey Mircea,

 

I'm glad you liked it! And thanks for the detailed feedback, it's always interesting to know what things people were inspired by  :smile:.

Just completed your mission.

If there's anything that I didn't like was the somewhat lacking sense of size. There are big halls, but some places make it feel a little minimalistic for the epic scope of the entire story and temple.

I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

 Don't feel guilty for delays. Your health and well being matters much more. This FM can be released whenever you feel it is finished and only then.

Thank you, Moonbo. I am greatly looking forward to your future missions! I'm just not sure if I should hope that they do not contain the same terrors as this one, or if I should be worried about what else you might choose to scare us with.

 

...and now to have a nice calming cup of tea in a well lit room.

Hey Shaz,

 

Thanks for the kind review, and enjoy that nice cup of tea :-). There will be some scary elements/sequences in the upcoming sequel, but hopefully they'll be balanced out by some more peaceful sections too. It's always nice for an author to know what people thought of their work, so thanks again for writing down your thoughts!

Hey Summer,

 

It's this one:

I'm a writer first and foremost, and I was writing this novella when I got the inspiration to make Requiem. So I consider the two companion pieces :-).

Btw., is there any chance it may get translated someday? :rolleyes:

 

Can this kindle stuff be read on the computer, or do you need extra software etc...?

WIP's: Several. Although after playing Thief 4 I really wanna make a city mission.

Hey Obs,

 

Gosh, maybe if I become super famous in the future then they'll be enough of a demand for a translation, but for now it'll have to be in English :-). The Amazon version can be read via Amazon's cloud reader (comes free whenever you open an account with Amazon) on any computer. But the version available at Smashwords.com comes in all sorts of formats, ranging from a simple text file, to PDF, to ePUB, so all your bases should be covered.

Hey Cambridge, that was really neat to watch - you're a really methodical player, the kind every mapper wants to play their maps :-). I just feel bad about the broken skins on the necromancers. I've let the TDM team know about that and they should be releasing an updated version of the level to address it.

That's good, I'll go through the updated version once 2.04 is released. No point doing the same mission twice on the same version.

If you're going to release an updated version of Requiem, here's some other things you can fix:

 

  • One of the people attending the requiem service uses the old wench model, and her vest is untextured.
  • One of the books in the library has no texture.
  • Usually after leaving the City Watch station, Captain Targhin somehow keeps walking into the wall outside his office. I actually got pretty lucky when I was recording and he was still doing his patrol even after defeating the Evil.

Can you do me a favor and take screenshots of the first two. I'll send them over to Springheel who is doing the updating.

 

Thanks!

By the way , has anyone found a use for the mines , they never seem to work in these missions.I've placed them where the haunts walk and even seen them step on them without the mine exploding. The only good use I've found for them is for blocking doors and stopping them opening thus trapping the haunt / guard or whatever on the other side.

 

LOL make sure you're USEING the mines not dropping them.

If you just drop them into your hand then onto the ground, they won't activate, you have to USE them.


I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Hmmm.Those missing textures look suspiciously like another manifestation of #4110  rather than a map problem.

I get the black textures too, so I don't think it's #4110 after all. I'll try to work out what's up.

 

Update: the wench with the black tunic is a problem with a TDM core asset, the barefeet skin for the wench. I'll open a tracker.

 

The black books look to be a map problem. They ask for skin "1" which isn't defined in the map pk4 and doesn't sound like a TDM asset.
