  1. Why have I been so quiet for the last several months ? I am slowly developing my series of missions again. I will prefer the individual release model, I might release at least one mission before the year is out. A smaller affair, but with some added verticality.

  2. Encouraging news: I have finished the rough structure of my first FM. It's a single-building style mission, a small mission, but hopefully it'll prove interesting. Now comes the hard work of sprucing up and furnishing the interiors of the thing, finalising the texture work, populating the FM and all that good stuff concerning patrol routes, loot placement, environmental effects, and the like. It's been good fun so far, though I'm well aware there's still a lot of effort ahead of me. For those interested, this historical structure provided the initial inspiration for the FM's setting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K├Ápu_Lighthouse

  3. With my workload finally decreasing and having to stay at home far longer than I planned for this spring, I think I'll try to find more time for TDM as well. For the time being, I want to work on those audio projects.

  7. Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

  8. This weekend I've had a unique opportunity to compare not two, and not even three, but four 2-1 transformers 2016 HP Spectre 13 2017 HP Envy 15 2019 Yoga 720-15 2020 LG Gram 13 Among other things I tested sustained 3D performance with TDM. TL;DR Intel Iris does not make sense in 15W chips (well, it did not on 14nm) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ujhtjCu477khi6LeeztGt_1sX2YC6LI-kUgk3lpLaMI/edit?usp=sharing

  9. It is so satisfying developing a habit to have an everyday time window for mapping. Waking up early before work just to lay in a "bed" with mouse and keyboard on both sides, lazily adding detail after detail to the map, listening to some ambient rain, storm, wind or blizzard sound to cut off anything around. I wonder if I will manage to finish it for Halloween, but tempo is promising. And waking up being excited how I will suprise myself this day is great!

  13. Congratulations on the 2.10 release, friends! All of you who worked on it deserve a reward--What am I saying? Many rewards! And many well-deserved vacations too. I especially love the faster loading times, this is something that has been bugging me since Thief 1, but back then I had an HDD, now I have an SSD and no matter if I save or load, the mission is huge or not, TDM is just incredibly fast, never had I have to spend more than 50 seconds anymore!

  14. I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.

  15. To any core team members and senior devs: If you're willing to provide voice acting supervision/QC for the following audio project for the core game, please let me know. We need a supervisor from among the core team, preferably one who's worked with audio and contributing voice actors before, to get this project properly completed. Any sustained help with providing quality control minded feedback to the VA (not just technical things, but performance feedback) is deeply appreciated. It's been a while since the core game received any new VA, and this is one particular old gap that could be filled with a completed side-project like this one.

  19. Hello there. I have read from the TDM Moddb page detailing that you are the author of the "Faster loading times". For that, I want to give you my utmost respect and my thanks. Loading times are something I absolutely hate, I can't even bear to wait 10 seconds for a game to load, but I just have to deal with it. Thankfully, you have made it absolutely bearable now! Again, thank you very much for such a great feature, I dare say that 2.10 is absolutely worth it just for the fast loading times than the rest, but I don't want to belittle the others, the volumetric light and lighting improvements are also fantastic! Since I know curiosity will kill me, I might as well ask you something... Is it possible to give this enhancement to other games? If not, at least Doom 3 itself?

  21. I find it alarming that 5 missions with 2.10-only elements take 15% of space among all 158 released missions.

  22. The final solution for low-end GPUs: r_skibSubviews 1 r_skipInteractions 1 r_shadows 0 r_ambientMinLevel 0.6 tdm_lg_interleave 0 If you don't get 60 fps after this then either your CPU is really slow or it's a map bug EDIT. tdm_lg_interleave is probably not required since r_skibSubviews supersedes it.

  24. When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.

  27. I'm doing some major archiving and updating on our wiki and the Thief wiki. It should be completed soon enough. I would also like to ask a question: The author "Digi", who made the TDM FM "Poets and Peasants", is Digital Nightfall from TTLG.com ? Or is he a completely different author ? Thanks in advance.

  30. Did you know all new Radeon cards now require at least an 8-pin power supply line? I was looking for a replacement for my desktop RX 570 and originally wanted an AMD card to test TDM on. Now I have to resort to buying an Nvidia because none of my 3 PSU's has an 8 pin output. I'm full Nvidia now.
