  1. There's a bigger issue, MirceaKitsune is currently stuck and needs help completing his dragon. I don't have the skills to help him so I keep hoping that someone here will step in and help him...
  2. I can think of many great ways to include a dragon into a mission but the first thing that comes to mind is the encounter with Smaug from The Hobbit. I really hope this dragon asset gets finished, I've been hoping for a dragon for years and years. @ MirceaKitsune: I know you're stuck but please don't give up on your dragon, it's beautiful!
  3. Is there room for clay-craft in this discussion? I like to make my models from the good old earth This one is about 2 feet in height and weights in at about 50 lbs...
  4. I see, thought for a moment that you were Tim "Kew" Jervis, sometimes people switch or have more than one online alias. I agree with you, love using the Unreal editor and playing co-op. Those were some fun times, hard to believe it's been 17 plus years.
  5. Are you also the author of "The Illhaven Saga"?
  6. For what it is worth. I worked on Nightblade and yes, that project is now quite dead. Originally it was going to be a UT2004 mod which was designed to replace the aging Thievery mod however, UT3 came out in the interim so it was switched but unfortunately the project's development dragged and eventually canceled. I can tell you that a tremendous amount of work was completed but there was still a lot more work to be done. This link will take you to Nightblade's UT2004 alpha release database. It's playable. http://www.thievery-customs.com/
  7. Thanks, I totally understand. I was just asking (and hoping) but I understand that there isn't dev time to make such a thing.
  8. OrbWeaver said: But there is no way to solve the learning curve and time investment problem. ~ I understand what you are saying but wouldn't you agree that having a DarkRadiant "lite" version would certainly lessen the learning curve and the time investment problem? I would think that would make building FMs more accessible to many more people. OrbWeaver said: Even if it were somehow possible to make an incredibly dumbed-down version of DarkRadiant, what you'd end up with is the Microsoft WordArt of level design, which might allow absolute beginners to churn out almost identical m
  9. A DarkRadiant "lite" version would solve several problems. It would solve the massive learning curve and time investment problem. It would make building FMs more accessible to many more members of this community that haven't been able to make their own FMs and it would also bring in completely new members into this community. Think about how many people have taken the time to download DarkRadiant but when they opened it up they said, no way can I do this... I would love to make FMs for this community but I haven't because learning how to use DarkRadiant would take way too much time and effort.
  10. I think it's safe to say that switching to another engine isn't going to happen. However, is it at all possible to develop a DarkRadiant "lite" version?
  11. I totally agree with everything Snowy said. DarkRadiant is an excellent tool but I feel that it is far too complicated for many to learn and use. I have years and years of mapping experience but the thought of sitting down and spending days/weeks/years learning how to effectively use DarkRadiant has prevented me from doing so. I would love to see the development of an easier and more limited tool. I would defiantly use that tool and perhaps from that I would go on to finally learn how to use the full strength version of DarkRadiant.
  12. The link below will take you to Nightblade's UT2004 alpha release database. I can't find anything from the UT3 mod. http://www.thievery-customs.com/
  13. For what it's worth... I was in Peace Corps in the 1990s, and lived on a small Pacific Ocean island in Micronesia. In order to survive, the people of Micronesia live very close and very connected to the land and sea. The older generations, who were born in the early 1920s, would say that they've seen lots of bad changes in the environment. The ocean had risen, it wasn't as clean, the coral reefs were dying, and there were a lot less fish... The temps were hotter, it rained less, there were bigger and more frequent storms etc... They would go on and on about their sinking island. Afte
  14. @ demagogue Thank you, that's all very good advice. I often look for these types of "events" in movies and books that I see and read. I try to steer away from taking things away from other people's maps because I don't want to be accused of stealing plus, I want to keep my events/maps as original as possible. But I understand your point, taking inspiration from other people's work seems permissible as long as it's only inspiration. Oddly enough, I've gotten quite a few ideas from watching old cartoons like Thundercats and even Tom and Jerry. My search continues...
  15. @STRUNK Thank you for suggestions, these are great!
