    With a paper hitting the ground? :D

    Finding an office room with multiple of frobable scrolls on a shelf would suggest that maybe something's hidden under, or behind them. In the last few FMs I played they're just there for no apparent reason.

    I know I am among the minority, but I love it when this happens! Maybe I am weird but that feels like true trial and error and raises tension even more when it was all for naught, especially if a roaming guard is nearby. From a gameplay perspective it’s a bitch and I predict it at this point but I still love wasting time opening every door and cabinet and pulling out every drawer, and picking up every scroll and meticulously setting it back down exactly as I found it. I do it every time and love it even tho I know 95% of the time it pans out the same way. 
    Im all in favor of new options for the sake of accessibility even if I don’t use it.

  2. Out of left field but anybody else get roped into the Among Us phenomenon? My 8 year old has been making me play with him and I have to say it really is quite fun. There is a certain social stealth and hiding in plain sight aspect to it that really appeals to me. Plus those damn streamers keep making those fucking catchy ass songs that have been on repeat in my house and car for three weeks straight.

    Also random, I would rather hunt down leaks all night than diagnose VPs. I'm an idiot when it comes to remembering to snap to grid so everything I make is different grid sizes, thus making portalling a bitch. Methinks I need to improve my workflow some, haha.

  3. That’s awesome, peter. 
    I’ve been way behind schedule on my FM’s beta testing. I started a new area and redesign, then the proverbial fecal matter impacted upon the cooling apparatus in RL. Once that cooled down I got distracted by an exciting new business venture that may prove lucrative and beneficial to my family; the logistics have been fun, albeit time consuming. I tour my potential new location on Wed and if it all goes well I’ll put a deposit down and sign a contract and give the bad news to my current boss. If this pans out I stand to make a lot more money to get out of debt and start looking for a house. And an improved workstation for better mapping and gaming pleasure. I’ve held off for a long time on branching out on my own, mostly due to time constraints with two little ones at home. I was super excited, but now I hear rumors our governor is going to make a statement this weekend and shut the state down again. A double edged sword, because I am in favor of that, but the opportunity for this space in the heart of downtown at a dirt cheap rate ( I could pay off my months rent with 3 full days of work and the rest of the month is pure profit, I have little to no overhead ) so I’m likely going to have to wait a week to make a decision.

    Oh and nearly forgot to mention, the past weekend I did manage to get new working bats and fireflies in my map, courtesy of @STRUNK. Once I get ‘em tweaked just right I can begin to buckle down again.

    But it's not such a big thing since you can usually get an idea about it just by searching the forum.

    Quite right. Might take more work than it’s worth, but how bout the other sorting categories, would those be easier? Just wishful thinking, minor quality of life type of thing.

  5. To add to the above, is it possible to give the ability to Sort the Mission List? Not just A-Z, but also by Author, by release date, by recently updated, and perhaps a far cry, a voting system (been brought up a million times) to sort by top Favorited by The Community, and then a personal favs list?

  6. Here’s my $0.02: 

    Flash Arrow YAY

    EMP Arrow NAY

    Could the Flash Arrow be used as an alternate holy water arrow against undead?

    I’d like to argue the Inventors’ Guild has built a grounding cable into electric lights to prevent overload, as to why the EMP arrow shouldn’t work. Besides mapping concerns already stated.

    Just one taffer’s opinion. 
    This is a fun discussion to follow.

  7. I can answer number 6. Entity limit of about 8100 or so. In my big map I’m working on I’ve hit the limit several times. Combining models within visleafs will drop your count thus freeing up more room to get creative.  But yes the downside is you better make sure you’ve got them right where you want them for good before combining/exporting.

    As for water, when applying a texture look under the folder ‘water_source’ or something like that. I do wish choosing water color was like choosing a light color.

    Please also see the Newbie Radiant Thread, it’s pretty damn active, I’d say there questions asked and promptly answered several times a day on a good week. Also the TDM Discord has its moments,  but ther is almost always someone online.

  8. Just one guys opinion: if that’s the case and the animation for the shadow can be altered, simply widening his stance when crouched (looks like he’s sitting on an invisible chair with legs at right angles) and doing something really anything with the arms ( currently just down by his side like standing at attention) would go so far.
