A mage with a woman's head.

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

I'm a big fan of the way you... diversify the existing AIs :P

 

Thank you!

 

I've been wondering why we don't have denominations of builders, same models wearing green or brown or gold, along with the red.

 

Sub Zero, Scorpion and Reptile are all the same sprite with a different color outfit.

 

Imagination makes them seem individual characters.

Yes, that would be a very simple photoshop if any mapper ever wanted to work with a different order of the religion - maybe a seclusive sect, or a town so distant from Bridgeport that religious practice follows an unfamiliar doctrine. Just as Rome and Constantinople were opposing centres of religious authority.

 

It could go further still and be a difference on a level like Catholicism and Protestantism (Calvinism). In the colder northern regions you could find a Builder order whose followers wear grey or black, live strict and simple lives and who build plain churches with no adornments. No golden builder symbols or candlesticks. Although closer inspection of the Bishop's chambers by a thief might reveal a sizeable stash of valuables.

 

I'm sure there were long discussions of having several orders in the core assets, for example if there should be Mechanists. The concensus turned out to be one order, which looks to me like it's midway between Hammerites and Mechanists - their symbol is a hammer and cog. Mechanically very capable, but not really into steambots, cyborgs or automated surveillance. Yet.

One thing waiting for me to put it to use is the banner on the right here; though I vaguely have in mind more a secular techno-utopian-mystical association than a directly Mechanist-like one. (The thing to the left is unrelated; it's from this season's 'H.P. Lovecraft Tiles a Bathroom' collection.)

That second one is like a new-school 2d platformer. Never seen the mission from this perspective. B)

Capela: it is textures/darkmod/stone/cobblestones/cobblestones_rounded_blue2 and it has been in the core mod assets in the latest version or two.

I've had the idea before to set up a camera above the player and make a platform level out of Darkmod.

 

There's precedence for stealth platformers, so it might work, and it might be possible without a branch. The PC could use more animations maybe, but that's not too bad.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Still working on the ghosts, but I have trouble finding some of the materials for the heads. If I remember correctly someone made a small program that can search in the pk4 files without extracting them. I think it was bikerdude? Does this program also run under windows? And if so, would you be so kind as to give it to me? It would make this work a lot easier...

This is some pics from me playing around with Dark Radiant and TDM assets, there's no "story" to it, just playing around, but it could grow into something in time, who knows.

 

Is WIP btw. :)

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.
