  1. That would have been a great way to handle it, I wish I thought of that.
  2. sorry, I missed your post! I hope you haven't given up. hint2 @Kae
  3. Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. Well the beta testers kept me busy making sure it didn't suck. A surrender option would be a cool thing to implement. I'm not sure if I've seen it done before in TDM, but I think it should be possible to build that into a mission.
  4. That's awesome, thank you. It was fun to learn how to do this. It often felt like I didn't know what I was doing, but I've played every single FM, so I must have picked something up along the way
  5. I'm glad you are enjoying it so far. You are the second person to mention arachnophobia, I guess that is not uncommon.
  6. Thanks Zerg, I really appreciate the input. I agree, "use item" would have been a more intuitive way to handle the potion.
  7. Thanks, I think Halloween may have influenced the image, but the FM is not spooky.
  8. I'm happy to present my first FM, The Spider and the Finch. There may be a spider, but no ghosts or undead. It should run a couple hours. It's now available on the Missions page or the in-game downloader. Many thanks to the beta testers Acolytesix, Cambridge Spy, datiswous, madtaffer, Shadow, and wesp5 for helping me improve and making the mission to the best of my abilities. This would not be have been possible without Fidcal's excellent DarkRadiant tutorial. Thanks also to the many people who answered my questions in the TDM forums. Cheers! 2023-12-13 Mission updated to version 3. Fixed a bug where the optional loot option objective was not actually optional. Updated the animations for Astrid Added a hallway door so the guards are less likely to be aggroed en masse.
  9. Nice Halloween mission! I ran into a small bug where the headless guy got stuck at the top of the stairs going in tiny circles, so there was no way to get past him. I had to retry from a previous save. I'm not sure what triggered it; possibly collided with a spider?
  10. The water might put out the fire, but it's Worth a try. I did that for the balcony toss. (edit) it does put out the fire:
  11. It didn't work. I tried a couple of different trigger brushes pointed to atdm:target_callscriptfunction, but the AI body just won't won't trigger them so the script is never called. I noticed in the description for trigger_entityname, it says "... Only works on entities that can enter trigger under their own power...if player drops them, there is no effect." This seems to be the case for the other triggers as well. I think I'm out of luck on this one, but it was just a nice-to-have, not important.
  12. Adding one last tidbit to my fm: it might be nice to be able to kill an ai by sticking their head in the fireplace or throwing them off a balcony (where fall damage is insufficient). Unfortunately "trigger_hurt" does not affect an AI that is unconscious. Is there any way around that? (edit) also tried it with stim/response with the same result: no-effect. only drowning seems to work on unconscious AI
  13. textures/water_source/watersplode_m1 is pretty much full white as far as I can tell.
