  1. Maybe the only way to fix the gaming industry is to join it and change things from the inside by force.
  2. It could make it more mainstream without having to dumb it down. And attempts at making modern action movies in all but name out of classic games has lead to series losing their original theme at times.
  3. I hope they bring back, in the classic spirit of the original games, without this nu-Theif or Nu-Tomb Raider type nonsense, Gex, Tomb Raider, Akuji, Soul Reaver, and Thief. Straight up just embrace the retro with better graphics, none of this "everything has to be an epic action movie with super cereal stakes and emotional drama".
  4. I also have discussed this idea with people on the console game dreams, and they've made some cool things, too, that people who can't afford to travel or are sick or old and so can't travel, will be able to experience for much cheaper and at home/hospital/retirement home. People have made Zoos filled with Zombie Animals, a recreation of a real life aquarium; one guy remade Disneyland, and one guy is making a collection of theme park rides that have been taken down or replaced, like Jaws The Ride and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
  5. I was thinking about what you said, nbohr1more, and while I stick by the Basic idea that talking about stuff so people discuss it and come to consensus on how to deal with it or address it is good, I also admit I can be pessimistic at times. So I started a new post, one about a way that programmers of games can help people who are sick, old, or don't have much time left in life to experience fun things they otherwise wouldn't be able to with VIrtual Reality. It's on a new thread.
  6. I was thinking about how I've been a bit of a pessimist whenever I post stuff in the off-topic section of The Dark Mod Forums, and whilst I do stand by the fact that it's healthy to face unhappy realities of the world in order to provide discussion so that people will spread that discussion and the problems are eventually gained notice of and fixed, I also realize that it's kind of depressing, talking about war and strife. So, I decided to talk about a topic of how we can make the lives of people who are sick and dying happier, and help them experience things they wouldn't be able to otherwise due to their conditions, such as elderly in retirement homes or cancer patient children undergoing chemotherapy or other people who can't go out and travel much. I was thinking about how I haven't gone to the Zoo, Aquarium, or Museum for over a decade, and how I haven't gone to an amusement park, water park, or the beach in summer since covid started. Then I thinks to myself, at least you've done that in your life, some people aren't as lucky or well-off as you've been in life; some people never got around to doing that sort of stuff in their life and now they're stuck in a nursing home, or some are still young but stuck sick in the hospital, and may not live long enough to do that stuff. So I got to thinking, I've seen people on The Dark Mod Forums who've discussed making a VR version of The Dark Mod. And I wonder to myself, hey, you don't know how to program any of this for the less fortunate, but you like to suggest stuff to people, plant seeds in their ears like, so I decided to suggest this to you guys: What about making VIrtual Reality Experiences for the less fortunate? Zoos, Aquariums, Amusement Parks, Carnivals, Circuses, Fairs of the normal and medieval variety, Museums, that sort of thing. And they don't just have to be based on reality, with V.R. you could create a zoo full of unicorns, dragons, zombie animals, aliens, demons, and other fantastical beasts, or make Amusement Park rides that aren't feasibly safe with modern technology, like a roller coaster that reaches up into outer space and through an asteroid belt! I know this comes out of nowhere, but the idea hit me and I'd feel guilty if I didn't share it.
  7. Ok. I'll keep that in mind.
  8. I'd like the idea of steampunk versions of the cyborg demons from Doom 3 as enemies in Dark Mod, a sort of pseudo-prequel vibe that Hell's technology grows more advanced as more intelligent evil souls are sent there. So at the time of The Dark Mod, they're limited to the same technology as The Inventors Guild.
  9. I'm more of a fan of the Thief games as a series than a developer. But I have been able to do something that has merit with the Thief community! Ever heard of the game Dreams? I can't figure out how to make stuff there myself, the controls for Dreamsculpting are hard, but I've gathered a group of fans of the Thief series who can, who are able to dreamsculpt. We're working on a fanmade, fan-finished version of Thief: Dagger of Ways, the cancelled Modern-Day American City version of Thief that was in production by Ion Storm before the Thief 2014 Victorian Era style reboot was made.
  10. I'm none of those, and also, "Holy fucking wall of text, Batman!" If you're so paranoid about me being some long-game Russian spy or some shit, forget about it. I'm 100% against all forms of authoritarianism; be it Islamic Sharia Law, Russian Oligarchy, or Chinese/North Korean Communism.
  11. I'm not a member of any of that. I simply find the discussion of it funny because of how stupid it is people believe in moronic shit like that. The world obviously isn't flat, and people's heads don't explode for no reason.
  12. I recently started listening to the other albums in Paul Shapera's New Albion 4 Album story centered around the city of the same name.
  13. I was listening to a recording of Radio Graffiti/Twitter Shout-out from The Ghost Show on YouTube, and one of the recent tweets was the single most stupid, downright retarded, galaxy-brain conspiracy theorist takes I've ever heard. I've decided to share it here so people can give their own insight to it "What If JFK's head just did that on his own?" You don't need to be a rocket scientist to realize people's heads don't just fucking explode for no reason out of nowhere. I've heard a lot of dumbass conspiracy theories, but "JFK's head just exploded on its own" takes the cake.
  14. It looks like it's a good game for fans of isometric playstyle, but it just seems... off, to me personally. No offense. It's just that the Thief series has been first person in all its iterations, as is The Dark Mod, and even Dishonored, if you want to count spiritual successors. I'm sure it's good, but it just doesn't scream "Thief" to me, more of a "Thief-inspired mobile game".
  15. I remember a Thief 1 and 2 based texture pack with Garrett skin a while ago. But that was years back, and I can't find it. It utilized actual graphics from Thief 1 and 2 in order to make skeletons into Haunts, Zombies into Thief's zombies, and Creepers I believe may have been Karras' robots. There was also another Thief 2014 Texture pack with a high-rez Garrett skin, but i haven't been able to find the video again after years.
