      You could do the same with ModWiki, which has more technical information on idtech4.

  3. The Playing Field is going to be streaming himself developing a map for the Dark Mod every Sunday:

      He is, he had a WIP thread for a map that wasn't very good, and IIRC he somehow got a job in game industry shortly afterward.

      The price is too steep for me atm, but I'd love to try it, especially as a long-time Souls player. It would be interesting to see how they did a game that requires you to completely forgot what you've learnt in DS.

      It's not that much about the pirates though. On YT, people abuse copyright system to stifle critique and videos they don't like, since the system is automated, and they don't even have to have a valid reason for copyright strike (or be a certain legal entity). People who got a copyright strike need to explain themselves first, not the one who's making a claim.

      This ensures poor systems like YT copyright strikes will be exploited even further, and used to stifle smaller entities and individuals even harder.

      Thanks for kind words! Yeah, I was using TDM to build a prototype level for modeler/level artist position (I contacted two local studios who wanted to see a playable environment first). But for last year or so I've been hearing so many bad things about working conditions in the industry, both here and worldwide. We discussed it many times with my SO, and we were both afraid that it would severely impact our relationship and our family life. That's why I decided to pursue a career...

  11. After 4+ hours I finally managed to automate a cubemap to irradiance map workflow. The results are satisfactory! Good to know ambient cubelights look good w/o makeIrradiance and with a proper IR map. May post a tut later.

      IMO Irradiance maps is pretty confusing term, as it hasn't been used much in games for a long time now, but this is a closest thing to explanation: https://learnopengl.com/PBR/IBL/Diffuse-irradiance

      @Stumpy – TDS materials were made in 3dsmax material editor, devs supplied 3dsmax plugins they wrote for that in T3Ed install. It would be great if someone could rewrite them for Blender, although I think some standalone app would be better.

      Weapon animations are not a problem, movement animations are. That sharp twitch every time you press any of WASD keys. Also neither T2 nor TDS have mouse smoothing, which also makes turning around feel a bit jerky. TDM is smooth as butter in all these aspects.

      Coming back from The Dark Mod, it really shows that T3 hasn't aged well. It's a pity. I've been trying to make something decent in TDS for years, but failed in the end.

      There is no way to make materials and new models without 3dsmax 5.1 and plugins provided by Ion Storm. If I could do something about it, I'd focus on making a standalone app for that, something like xNormal.

       

      The other thing is player animations. I tried playing the intro mission just an hour ago, they are still awful.

      That floating bug is random, I'm afraid. All you can do is draw a bow and cancel it, you need to have at least 1 arrow with you. Still, it's hard to get back to either Thief 1/2 or TDS, when you get used to TDM smooth movement model and snappy mantling. There's nothing quite like it.

      I think there's a 32-bit version somewhere, but I used winXP on a VM for that. Not the most optimal solution. Also, that crazy Italian bastard Massimo actually managed to create new animations for T3. His tutorial is rather terrible, but it can be done.

      IMO both discoveries are kind of "too little, too late", like 10 years late.

      You know me, I like to have complete freedom in terms of making art and assets. One of the big no nos is very stiff requirement of 3dsmax 5.1, you need it to export models and materials. And you need to make everything out of models, basically, as BSP tools are very weak and error prone. I don't mind that actually, as this is the way the industry went, and I'm comfortable with working like that. But it will be a huge pain for someone working with Dromed or TDM, and makig most things o...

      8700 should reach 4,6 GHz in Turbo mode, my current CPU is set to 3,02 GHz. I wonder if higher clock will help with stuff like higher DC count.
