  1. Mappers could replace the run animation with the old animation if they want the slow run.
  2. I've also created a few alternate zombies, to add a little variety to your local necromancer lair. The first is a fairly straightforward variation that uses the hunched over animation set Kingsal created for his beastmen. Unlike typical zombies, these are fast runners.
  3. It doesn't seem to correlate to date joined. Greebo and Stifu both have the icon, and they were 2006 and 2009 respectively. Meanwhile, stgatilov, also from 2009, doesn't have it.
  4. Is anyone else having this problem? I don't see anything obvious that would explain it.
  5. I can't wrap my head around constructing a trilogy without having any idea of where the plot was going or what the overall story beats were going to be. It's like writing a story where each author writes a page and then passes it to the next person and expecting it to come out with a coherent narrative.
  6. TDM was released in 2009, so 2010 was the year of the most buzz around the project. IIRC we had two different mapping contests that year as well. The 2013/2014 bump came when we went standalone, won PC Gamer's Mod of the Year award, and T4 was released. Good times.
  7. Steambots aren't supposed to be immune to swords. It's one of the few ways players have of disabling them, and it comes with the penalty of being rather loud. I didn't realize that, without damage zones, the ko_zone spawnarg wouldn't work. Now that that issue is fixed, they're working as intended.
  8. I wouldn't think a bag of lead would do more damage than a sword, even against metal. It should be noticeably quieter than a sword though.
  9. I don't think it was ever part of the plan that bots could be knocked out with the blackjack. I think the bj does a small amount of damage though, so you could beat one to death with enough time.
  10. It was said, but it wasn't especially accurate even at that time. It's definitely not the case now.
  11. This is a new wrapped corpse model, kindly created for the campaign mission by epifire. There are multiple versions, including a sitting version, and a couple piles of bodies. The City is now ready for the plague!
  12. I've created a walking flame-bearer skeleton as a security device for crypts or mage towers. The held brazier is part of the md5mesh, and the mapper binds a flame to it. The skeleton is a functioning AI, but he can't attack or let go of the brazier, so if alerted, he will search for and track the player, but won't be able to do damage. He works best when combined with other AI for that reason. You can set them to a neutral team to the player if you don't want them to react, and I've included a static model as well if you don't want any AI functions. The only thing about the current implementation I don't like is that the flame stays burning if you kill them...it would be nice to have it go out like a dropped torch. Probably just requires a script, so if anyone feels inclined to add that, feel free.
