Ambient atmospheres are in my opinion one of the best parts of the Dark Mod experience, not just for getting a mission to have the right feel but also for inspiration and to have them playing in the background when creating maps. The more the merrier, so here's a thread to collect all the links to ambient music and environmental sounds that could have a spot in TDM's setting.
Ambients from the TDM forums
Gast's Eerie Lullabies
Magnanimous Merry's Miscellanea
Orbweaver's Dark Ambients
Kyyrma's Composing Ambient Tracks for Dummies
Kyyrma shows how ambient soundtracks can be made from a set of sounds. Also contains some of his finished ambients.
Request for more interior sounds
This thread is a very productive community session where members came up with a large and good selection of new ambients.
Undeclared Ambient haunted_something_is_wrong_here. An ambient that's already in the mod but doesn't show up because it doesn't have a soundshader (fixed in 2.04).
Uncle Peti's Sound Den
SeriousToni's Ambients post #8 in this thread and onwards
Ambients from the TTLG forums
Custom resources list
Possibly the largest pack of ambient musics and nature sounds, all of them high quality.
Yandros' ambient loop
A large collection of ambient pieces, including many shorter ones which will be valuable for anyone wanting to try a layered ambience approach like in the Thief OMs and Full Moon Fever.
Also has a large collection of ambient sounds. One of the better composers is ERH imo.
A large selection of all kinds of ambient and musical soundtracks to be used freely.
An internet label that publishes a lot of dark ambient music under a Creative Commons license.
Sister website of darkwinter for non-dark ambients.
Game Audio DGC Bundle
These are mostly sound effects, although the first two parts also contain a handful ambients and wind sounds. The later parts are mostly gun and car sounds.
Also has very nice reference images for outdoor stone memorials, statue arrangements etc.
#4 Void by Raffaele du Marteau
#6 Dreaming of Nowhere by Raffaele du Marteau
Possibly the most forlorn pieces I've found on the internet.
Alacazam A prolific Creative Commons ambients composer .
Internet for-profit label for dark ambient music with a large selection on offer. Going by their Youtube comments they're fine with people using their soundtracks for games etc., although you'd probably need to buy the soundtracks first.
Dark Ambient Mixed Session
As much ambient as something to have in the background while mapping.
And finally - please do post anything else that comes to your mind.
