Had to backpeddle on Vertigo after all the features added in the latest Dark Radiant release. Here is an image of the FM utilizing some of these features.

Holly s*** that graphically, for a TDM mission, is very impressive indeed, very professional.  😲

Amazing! Only if that tree could cast alpha shadows...

It looks very pretty, but (i.m.o.) I don't see anything in it that is not tdm-recognisable, apart from the daylight. I mean, I'm not surprised tdm can do this.

What would happen if shadow maps were used. I guess the tree parts also need to be semi-transparent..

True just haven't seen this type of prettiness yet. As for trees casting alpha shaodws, I'm afraid that won't work by default, and I wish this were fixed in vanilla: The leaf material has "noshadows" enabled... I think: What we need is to only use noshadows on transparent materials if shadowmaps or alpha texture shadow casting are disabled, otherwise cast shadows... I enabled those settings but for me trees still cast shadows only from the trunk, I think the noshadows flag needs to be removed from some surfaces.

Edit: I might be wrong on that. Looking in tdm_models_decls01.pk4 at materials/tdm_models_nature_trees.mtr the materials with "leaves" in their name don't have the "noshadows" flag. But then why didn't I see shadows cast by lights on trees even with r_shadowMapAlphaTested set to 1? I'm positive I looked in Seeking Lady Leicester and it wasn't working for the small trees and plants in the yard, either from my lantern or lamps I think shined over the trees.

My favorite kind of update... Assets that not only looks stunning, but that I can actually hope to access and use in a map! Everybody wins! 😃

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

Yep! These will be in a CC0 asset pack that hopefully will release before or with the mission.

Let me just be the first to say.... I vote "before" :D

Always love when I get around to designing a cozy looking tavern. What would I do without the AI table prefabs, much as food and cutlery starts flying around everywhere whenever they get alerted no matter how you try fixing them :P

I notice now that the sitting pose of ai is like they're leaning, but in this case there's no back to lean on.

I guess there's that shining mirror plate. If you don't want it to reflect, you could remove the reflection from the material?

All of those items should be static models, not entities with collision.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Which do you mean? The architecture itself is func_static of course, the tables are based on the AI eating / gambling prefabs so the only physical things are cutlery and food.

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
