  1. Those times when you screw up a cunning idea and end up rebuilding a few things just so you don't have to discard it? It is one of those times!

      Hmm I will give it a try, maybe it will make a big difference.

      Yes, but it is more restricted: you need to put a number of specific compartments and they have to be placed in specific place -and all arranged into cylindrical shape. Main engine, air compression pumps, air purification, ballast tanks... Of course you can make it like in Thief2 but it is not too convincing for me.

      Tell me about it. I currently redoing whole submarine from scratch -old brush design was (ironicly)not enough airtight and with all details in place I call it success if fps was above 20.

      And IF this will succeed I still will struggle with ship crew -12 men should switch their positions as their shift end, and for some reason it never work as it should. Maybe I should stick with some generic mansion in-and-out burglary.

  4. Just saw a boar near my building searching for food in garbage.

      They most certainly ate unsorted garbage. I guess pig wouldn't mind eg batteries for flavour.

  5. So today I learned that if you hold the crouch button on a ladder/rope it causes the player to drop down from the current position saving yourself from hitting the jump key and hoping you land correctly. It might not sound like much but damn this is so great

  6. There was a thread somewhere, something about "the 5 most important things you need to know when starting to map" where, obviously, you could discuss what skills beginners should know. Does anyone know what I mean? I can't find it and since I want to start mapping that would be a great read

      something like:

      1) read the tutorial,

      2) make it work,

      3) then make it work better?

      4) (and don't put too many lights in same spot)

      5) (and put twisted corridors between bigger areas?)

       

      6)bonus point: puuuuuush!! noone said it will be pleasure!

      Once Brundle-fly dreamt he was a whole family, merged with Geena Davis (what a nice idea) and her unborn baby. So maybe it is a part of this transgender deep Self merging of polarities and achieving godlike wholeness... by wearing lipstick and not shaving legs at the same time. Deep.

  8. So my 'Abandoned' city map grew too big and TDM couldn't dmap it - crashes every time on my old 2 GB RAM pc. One year later I've bought finally new one with 8GB RAM, 32 bit Win7 used only 3 GB of it and dmap still crashes. Installed 64 bit Win7 -dmap finally is able to swallow big map, but Dark Radiant crashes at start. One day later Win7 "found out" it lacks service pack, installed it and now finally all works. One problem solved, thousand more waits in line.

  9. Got my first payment this month and ordered a starting set for a model railway. Can't wait to start building it up for the first time and planning the layout. Now I only have to think about where to place it in my 35 square meters flat :D

      Those sand waves imply water movement as well. Add element combining like in Doodle God, + force fields/ strings, and it will be at least entertaining... sandbox. mudbox. lavabox. whatever.

      While Arx Fatalis have great magic mechanism, its spells are prefabricated even if they fit given rune domain. I wonder if someone done "spell coding" mechanism a bit like paper and pen rpg Pathfinder's power words, Ars Magica or TORG.

      Imagine it bite your eyeball while you sleep. But I especially admire parasites multiplying in your brain, or liver, so surgeon discovers even few kg of maggots. Insects are like Mother Nature's blood, flowing right through everything, including your body.

      For some, tobacco is adulthood's ritual, later it helps with social anxiety, I suppose.

      I really enjoyed Ufo:Aftermath an Aftershock. It is one of those games where you want to save/load after every shot. In Enemy Unknown you had to end mission, skip summary screen, and go to main menu to load if something went wrong. A bit too painful.

  13. Wow, adult responsibilities suck. Every evening when I've completed all The Tasks That Must Be Done, I'm left with less than 30min of personal time. Any more than that saps my sleep time, which isn't really an option in my new job. If some member of this community has some spare time, please put it in a box and mail it to me. I'll put it to good use. Thank you!

  14. I'm having surgery on my WASD hand tomorrow. I'm told it could be 3 weeks before I use those fingers again, so no playing or mapping for me :-( I'll have to get my TDM fix purely from messing with scripts and code.

      I think many people are in some bipolar sadomasochistic state of mind. They have to either be better or worse than you, and will try to find even a smallest thing that makes you inferior to them. People also tend to have friend-or-foe system in head and will not tolerate if you "just" pass them by in life.

  18. Mapper tip: When you have an area you have no idea what it should contain, fill it with crates, barrels and junk. Call it "storage." Problem solved.

      Oh shit, I have to add pallets to my 174 crates. But what about forklift, do they had them in dark ages? WAIT THERE ARE PALLETS IN TDM.

      Or in case of small alcove, "deceased uncle altar". Or "One Direction altar". It could give visual representation of a single strong emotion. But I guess storage means maximum space filled with minimum verticles.

  20. Does anyone knows why buider_forger have this heavy metal collar? Are those remains from Doom models? I'm making diving helmet for this model so it's perfect, but what is its purpose?

      Ah, so this metal beak is just lower part of vizor helmet. Interesting :).
