  1. Love the fight between the cold and warm colors. Very reminiscent of Thief 3 Art Direction where the blues and oranges competed with each other and made a great feel.
  2. Here's a little proposal for expanding the Dark Mod Universe Lore: Why? Cause I think the current Lore is too safe. The game needs more extremes for inspiration, more shock value and more controversy. Taquito is all about controversy and making people talk. 1. Plague: As part of the Deus Ex winning formula. The Dark Mod needs a specific Plague (Dark Plague, Dark Death?) As an invisible yet present enemy in the subconsciousness of the player's mind, adding atmosphere and much more dreaded feel in the game as well as a great element for Artistic Direction or Aesthetic element. -Piles of bodies or infected burned bodies appear all around in the city. Infected were often thrown out of the City gates or escaped to the sewers. -The ones with infected families could not go out and have their houses marked with red paint. ____________________________________________________ 2. The most Precious Material: Bridgeport should gravitate towards a precious gem or material that is the most important for the empire. This precious stone, gem or material is both mined and directly sent to the Empire. Failure to administrate this good correctly is considered death and its a vital item for the Empire's growth. Highest priority of the Empire. -Mine workers are often caught carrying this and are immediately executed (hanged or burned alive). -All sort of thieves are also caught, even some disguised as priests carrying the precious material inside sacred small wood statues. -Every one getting in or out City Gates are checked for carrying this precious material. -Captured Pagans are often used to mine this precious material in concordance between Builder Church and Empire _____________________________________________________ 3. Slavery: Pagans Pagans are considered the scum of the Land according to the Builder Church. Often hanged or burned alive. The Builder Church has no mercy on heretic Pagans. -Pagans often live inside City Gates hiding their identities. Whole families pretended faith to the Builder but hide their stone figures inside chests deep inside their homes where they practice their heretic ways in secrecy. -Pagans living inside Gates often use last names relative to stones or flowers in order to identify between themselves and often talked or wrote in codes to communicate with each other without raising suspicion. -Being related or coming from a Pagan Family no matter how long ago or how far back the traces are is frowned upon. _____________________________________________________ 4. Moors: Like the Dutch to the Spanish. -Enemies of the Empire. Moors look for ways to access this precious material and will pay huge amounts of goods in order to attain a piece of the cake. -They look for ways to sabotage the empire and often use thieves to do so. -Their ships are often located in hidden bays far from the City waiting patiently for the arrival of anyone capable of bringing them the precious item out of the Gates. -Moors are looked upon as Pirates to the Empire. A pest hungry for the precious gem but not strong enough to be considered a threat to the Empire. ___________________________________________________ 5. Witches/ Necros: Same thing -Instead of making Necros who lived far secluded from the City. Making a similar approach to the Pagans yet combining the Necromancy and Witchcraft altogether. -Witches live secretly inside City gates, have a secret sect where they service their evil God. (have to come up with a name) and believe to be an active element into bringing this evil being back from the pits of Hell by indirectly creating havoc and building this Perfect and powerful vessel out of human parts. -Witches often service noble people in secrecy with weird concoctions or powerful love potions to clients with deep pockets. -Due to the nature of their work and the constant threat of the church, witches often ask for help to thieves in order to collect these parts or simply make a quick hand if they become victims of black mail by an unsatisfied costumer by placing a diabolic or pagan figurine into their ex clients abodes and making sure the Inquisitor gets a hint. -Witches and Necros often act as the most devoted Builder believers or even act as priests of the Church. They like to be close to the enemy and they take great joy in their bold activities. -Witches and Necros are the smartest (Probably the only ones) of Bridgeport and very hard to cross, deceive or get caught. ______________________________________________________________ 6. Wizards/ Mages: A thing of the past. -With technology, Mages are now considered useless and obsolete. -Mages live far outside the city as Kings of their own castles, more like rustic abandoned castles taken over by nature with no electricity and often in poverty. -Most Mages only live with one Page or one Mage Apprentice who not only cared for the well being of the Mage but the whole abandoned castle. Which obviously were not enough for the big task. These talent less apprentices were often used by mages as personal slaves in exchange for little knowledge given by them. -What mages lack in Guards and Security of their castles, they got in all sort of Magical beings like Fire elemental (should be directly correlated to Mages as their creations) as well as traps to guard their precious treasures. -Mage castles often have precious antiques or artifacts highly priced by Nobles and Moors. So it shouldn't be a surprise to see thieves in the look for special items. ___________________________________________________________ 7. Prostitution: Cause it's necessary (Jobs) -Prostitution is a vital part of Bridgeport's economy. Considered ilegal by the Empire, yet pretty much ignored by law. -Even if its frowned upon by Church. It seem to be a way to keep the women of good from the clutches of lust and dark desires of men. -Prostitutes work in taverns and are busy all day and night. Often had a bucket of dirty water beside the bed to clean up in between clients so they don't get ill between the legs as they say in Bridgeport. -Most of the clientele are Guards, Noblemen and even Builder Priests who visit way late at night were most clients are long gone. ___________________________________________________________ 8. Vampires: Cause why not? -Some say Vampires live deep hidden in the Sewers below the city and are secretly organized. -Vampire attacks are often reported -Not much is known or talked about of this tho ______________________________________________________________ 9. Racism and Classicism: Slavery -Obviously wealth is the most important thing in Bridgeport. -Having a name is almost as important. Being the daughter or son of General this or Sargent Mayor that can get you places. -Marriages are arranged by class level. Marriages between social classes are frowned upon and extra marital Romances and Love stories with different classes are topics of romantic novels and gossip. -Having a Pagan or Moor in your blood line is a stain in the family and it will be kept secret, if not, it will be constantly reminded by society. No matter how far back it was. -Pagans are the scum of society. Often used for service or slavery. ________________________________________________________________________ 10. Miscellaneous stuff - People were just dirty. They rarely took baths and used a concoction of herbs to keep their breath fresh although still dirty for special occasions. - Women of good hated Prostitutes but had to keep quiet about it in fear to be left alone by their husbands - Women with good families, wealth or name will marriage first. Not being married past a certain age is almost as being cursed - Pagans spoke their own dialects and are seen as the same thing even if they came from different tribes. - Pagans who worked as service in a nobleman family often mixed certain herbs with food to make them sleep deeply in order to make their heretic activities at night without getting caught. - People actually believed in ghosts and all sort of stories. (Ghost can serve as some sort of envisioned element or clue to a story or path. Similar to System Shock or other games). - People often trusted and often wrote complaining letters to the Inquisitor or Patriarch way more than the Emperor. The Emperor was more looked upon as mostly interested in exploiting the rich material before mentioned. I think this is it. Hope it serves as point of discussion and in no way it means these elements should be implemented but rather serve as point to enrich the lore. English is not my first language so my apologies if some grammar errors.
  3. I don't remember the model but I know I had to change the Power Supply and got one much better but I'll have to check the exact details. The moitor is pretty old and outdated, nothing fancy. Hp Pavillionf1503 . The purchase has been made for the Evga and the Crucial.
  4. Does the dual fan thing makes any difference?
  5. I already got a new Power Supply not long ago. Basically these are the options shipping where I'm from: Card: https://www.amazon.com/Geforce-Dual-Fan-Graphics-DUAL-GTX1050TI-4G-Graphic/dp/B01MCVH13I/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1480971337&sr=1-5&keywords=GTX+1050+Ti+4&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011 https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Support-04G-P4-6253-KR-Rodgers/dp/B01MF7EQJZ/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1480971337&sr=1-1&keywords=GTX+1050+Ti+4&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011 SSD https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX300-525GB-Internal-Solid/dp/B01IAGSD68/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1480971480&sr=1-1&keywords=ssd+512&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-75E500B-AM/dp/B00OBRE5UE/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1480971480&sr=1-2&keywords=ssd+512&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011 Sorry to keep bothering you but I'm pretty insecure with things I don't know much about.
  6. I just noticed TDM has an average rating of 9.5. Quite impressive.
  7. Just got the bonus so I can elevate the Budget no at $400, so please give me the best Card and SSD combo around that price.
  8. I think this is a great opportunity for TDM to get some extra attention since the VR Fans seem desperate for good tittles. Perhaps the ones who did the Penumbra or the Doom mod could work in TDM as well? the biggest challenge could be the bow and arrow mechanics? Cause the sword and the mace models are already in the system.
  9. The Fairy tale castle is part of the Chicago Museum which is quite impressive too: The mini Palace:
  10. Thanks for the clue Dragofer. I was running the whole mission without reading much. Too exited looking at the great Art Direction and lighting. Will read and role play in my second run.
  11. I think I'm stuck. How do I get inside the second house?
  12. Thanks guys for the help and patience. I'm waiting for my Christmas bonus to get both the card and the ssd. I'll keep you updated and will bother you some more for the installation.
  13. What do you think about this one? https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX300-525GB-Internal-Solid/dp/B01IAGSD68/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480520897&sr=8-2&keywords=ssd+500
  14. The only places I've ever shopped online is Steam and Amazon. I'm open to other options as well.
  15. Puerto Rico. We got a 11% local tax and a 5% municipal tax here
  16. Really good stuff Dragofer. The concept of Old Dollhouses for Interior and Exteriors. Here are some others I found:
  17. What's the general price for an SSD?
  18. Ok so to take things in perspective, SSD and a 1050Ti card would be more cost efficient than the 1060 cause my PC would not be capable of using the 1060 to the best potential. - Is if difficult to install an SSD? I've installed a video card before and that's it. - How will a 1050T fare in longevity? Cause in the future, if I find a game I like to play but I can't cause the card isn't enough, but at the same time, I don't want to spent 300$ or more in an 1060 and have the same issue cause I don't have an SSD or my PC cant use the 1060 to its best potential.
  19. Those 5.5 months felt like 5.5 years.
  20. More than a year ago to be exact.
  21. You guys are doing great at getting me confused. Please explain to me in potatoes and beans how the 1050Ti compares to the 1060 and why do I need to combine the 1050Ti with an SSD? I don't even know what an SSD is;
