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.

      Jeff, I sent you PM a few weeks back but you did not respond. Maybe your inbox is full?

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Back from a spontaneous 1-week trip to Lanzarote with wife and son. I hope beta testing has been going well...
