  1. I was thinking how far into industrial era the consumerism starts to drive some big numbers of major group society. Mass-producing of cheap things from celluloid (combs, kitchen utensils, etc.) making modern marketing and advertisement spread around streets and people's minds. Child labor and 12-hour shifts, seven days a week is one thing about factories dominating the world, but putting more modern image of a human in basically dark age grounded society needs some serious rethinking of the whole world set. And for now, a tank. With no context.
  2. There is saveRagdolls command - if i remember correctly it adds an arg to all ragdolls on the map with their current joint positions. You place ragdoll as you like it, use command, and next time the map starts it will be in that position. If you have more ragdolls, you just delete an arg from them in DR. Can't you put a table next to the chair, drag the body from the table, and remove the table afterwards? Shouldering a body don't work with it?
  3. I'm working on all texts and voices with Petike the Taffer. Can't really tell how much time it will take.
  4. Dragofer asked me for a lighthouse engine, giving 160x 160x 160 units as a maximum dimensions. It is a bit rushed (few hours) and looks more like a clock tower mechanism as I think about it now.
  5. Six hours left. Tell your grandma!
  6. I guess this drop occur when I walk into flame emitter - as I understand being immersed inside emitters vs standing next to them makes a visible difference in performance.
  7. I know all this lava filled caves in games and movies should incapacitate you instantaneously just with poisonous gases, not to mention heat shock -and death will come minutes after. But this lava filled catacombs are a leftover from older concepts of the palace above, so it was a bit hard to just get rid of a fully fleshed out environment. This one have some magical components (mages can't close portals and the lava is pouring in), so the magical containment methods are in use, but I guess I will make a lava much more coagulated (mostly dark with molten cracks) and add some frosty draft.
  8. The copper maiden golem - indestructible, red-hot block of metal, with equally unbreakable will. Slow, silent, can set a deadly trap in atight corridor.
  9. No, these are remnants of a pen&paper rpg system I've been working decades ago. It was a bit like Deus Ex / Bladerunner with oceans totally filled with algae, completely clouded sky, all plants are dead and decaying biomass is everywhere, all herbivores died, so all carnivores roaming in massive swarms, attacking and taking over whole cities. There is a black hole on the surface of the sun, dead people are no longer dead due to advanced life support systems - but if you are not rich enough, your brain will be added to the pool containing thousands of other, forming a collective net, like the elders council. Few factions struggle to find and perform a solution for this disaster.
  10. There was this epidemic outbreak, starting at a rock crystal mining facility, deep in the marshes of Rahena. Some poor burglar manage to survive all horrors of the seemingly undead, deranged crew spreading havoc as their flesh started falling apart. He escaped, only to bring the new pathogen to more densely populated areas. Many lives perished in flames of this terrible disease, but much more were kept at the brink of death, but still able to fight it. A victim of the crystal leprosy disease, kept alive by a carapace of prosthetics, servomotors, with all organs sustained in bath of nutritious liquids. Remaining flesh keeps peeling off, and the mind of now unrecognizable human being deteriorates, poisoned by the necrosis - at this point one may ask if there is a living creature still there or is it just an autonomous yet mindless machine with bits and pieces of decaying body.
  11. We definitely need those assets, could be just new voice set for any AI if not for player character (I think there are two female voice sets at the moment). Remember, as long as the new content appears, we all winning.
  12. This is something we could use as an advertisement, aside of maybe more transparent mission selection page: a grid of big thumbnails, name + very short description. Any picture-based web page layout, like Pinterest, have this attractiveness of picking over in a supermarket. You just rolling forward, not knowing what you want until your eye catch something. And you will forgot what you saw two minutes ago, so there is a replay value in it. There could even be multiple entries for the same mission with different screenshots - you don't know what mission exactly you are picking, you just see a cool image. An interactive gallery of all screenshots from all missions reshuffled - every image with short description of the mission and a hyperlink.
  13. I bought the mic today, it should arrive tomorrow. I actually forgot about your request, but if I manage to get the mic working with good recording quality, I'll try to record those lines. ?

      Excellent. On a sidenote: Should I choose a particular accent for the captain ? I wanted to give him this pseudo-Scottish accent, but if you don't need one, that's fine. ?

      Sorry for the delay, I had a busy week in work and had no strength to focus on writing. I hope I will make few texts unrelated to the most questionable parts this week.

      I'm focusing more on coherent narrative and believable transitions between plot points, than on accent. I don't have a calm moment to think about it all in big picture, but I have progress lately.

      Okay. Tell me when you'll need the recordings and send me the lines once you're satisfied with them. I'll be testing my mic until then and practicing. Want to be sure it doesn't need too much fine tuning.

    Yes imagine drawing a blueprint with your left leg - that would be as intuitive as doing anything precise with a wii controller. I can't wait.
  15. Also, I can't find elemental's model, so I could modify it - its directory supposed to be models/md5/chars/monsters/elemental/tdm_elemental.md5mesh but I've unpacked all related archives and still don't see it.
