  2. Well with a well respected builder visiting I thought it fitting that the first thing he would see walking in would be that lol. Someone's head is going to roll!

  3. I am sorry if my comments are irritating, but it has occurred to me that this topic has come up due to shadow mapping performance issues. If shadow mapping was more performant than I could simply turn up the soft shadow quality or shadow size. Modern games use cascade shadow maps to improve performance. I have noticed that my frame rate will tank when looking down a hallway with lots of shadow casting lights. I was thinking about shadow mapping today and the following occurred to me. Shadow quality should scale with the amount of angular screen space that they take up. I don't know if the dark

  4. Neat little mission... very creepy. Finished with a perfect stealth score but only 645 loot, and I had a few dicy moments avoiding the red flashlight ghost, and I did reunite Olivia and Penny.

  5. Can't use those directly as they are assets from another game that's not in public domain. They could probably be modified enough to be unrecognizable, but derivative works of copyrighted content is still a nono I think.

  7. Can't remember the name of the mod but someone imported the garett model and animations from Deadly Shadows into their Doom 3 mod. If you could track them down it might simplify things

  8. Be happy its not in italy, the midevil currency there included cheese xD (parmesan to be specific). https://money.visualcapitalist.com/the-worlds-strangest-currencies/ I could seriosly not imagine a stealthy thief trying to roll one of those bad boys out of a bank, the sight would have been hilarious.

  9. Found a couple smaller issues so far. Firstly it's possible to get stuck behind furniture immediately in the beginning: The newspaper also deserves a small fix, the second headline about the mayor is too long and looks obviously out of place.

  10. This is why it hasn't been bothered with all this time. It's a shit ton of work, for very little benefit, and most players have gotten used to the player having no shadow. Though I have to say I always turn it on now as it's very immersive, I love seeing my shadow splashed across a wall.

  11. I'm wondering how much coding support would also need to be done. It sounds like some of this would call for cuing and cycling through idle animations, cycling through animation variants for different things, and for things like mantling, to do it justice you'd want the animations to be in line with the different mantling mechanics, i.e., responding to things like cancel conditions, morphing a jump animation into a mantle animation, etc. Just off the top of my head, some of that sounds like it needs code support to handle it, which is a bigger can of worms than just making a few stock animatio

  12. Just one guys opinion: if that’s the case and the animation for the shadow can be altered, simply widening his stance when crouched (looks like he’s sitting on an invisible chair with legs at right angles) and doing something really anything with the arms ( currently just down by his side like standing at attention) would go so far.

  13. Been on a trip recently and didn't have time to look into this more. But indeed I'm stuck on the exporter issue: 2.9 doesn't want to export no matter how I organize the collections, and I still can't figure out exactly what it doesn't like and how to fix it.

  14. Yes. No body awareness please.

  15. Yeah please no body awareness, while it's cool, in practice it sucks to be limited in what you can do by the player model. It really made Thief 3 feel super janky when doing anything.

  16. I think it is what @duzenko did with texture gather. It is only enabled when soft quality is zero, and if GPU supports it. Unlike what you might expect, it does not remove the stair-like look of shadow boundary. It makes it a bit blurry, but separate texels are still visible pretty well. The same would happen if you decide to blur a low-resolution image rendered without antialiasing using <= 1 pixel blur radius: it will not get antialiased well. Yes, of course. Scissor test is used to achieve it: it allows to limit rendering to axis-aligned rectangle on screen. The rectangle for e

  17. What an awesome mission! I really enjoyed this one. It had strong Thief 1 and 2 vibes to it with the grimy yet spacious interior of the tower. I finished with a mediocre stealth score (got into a fight with the little spideys at the temple) and nabbed all but about 100 of the loot. Another thing I liked was that there's more going on in the City than just your mission... the dead watch guy in the temple for instance, and the jerk counting his loot at the start of the mission. I wish I could map this well. Gives me something to aspire to.

  18. I don't know if this is possible, but it would seem to me the most immersive. Have an AI walk up to and remind the player. It could be in the form of a hint. Probably a friendly thief. All he really needs is a conversation setup, nothing tricky. The hard part is working out whether to call the AI or not. I really don't like text on screen as a prompt. It's like getting hit over the head
