That's a great roofline. Keep working!

Hey fellow taffers. I'm working on a mansion mission right now with a little twist at the end, but it's a secret.

It's still heavy WIP as I'm familiarizing myself with Dark Radiant and its particularities but I consider geometry as 75% done.

Pretty mind blowing for a first post Skacky! Do you have experience with other level editors / DromEd?

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

Damn looking at that post I feel embarassed that I haven't got more progress to show on my first FM for the past month (been lazy as hell lately).

 

I have a feeling this isn't your first rodeo, shacky. you are my kinda lurker. busting out on the scene with a beautiful almost-full FM ready to go. :wub: welcome to the forums.

Skacky,that looks gorgeous! And pretty damn fine for a first post :wub:

 

Only a few remarks:

 

* Please turn on anti-aliasing in the menu. 2x or 4x should be enough. It makes TDM look much much better :)

* Who is gonna light/extinguish all these in high-and-impossible to reach locations? Don't tell me somebody with a very long ladder goes round each evening and refills the oillamps :D

Welcome! Good shots! :)

Thanks everyone. :)

Yeah I've been working with Hammer for quite some time now (9 years if I recall) and I know a bit about the Unreal Editor. It's my first time working with Dark Radiant though, even if I worked briefly with GTK Radiant 4 or 5 years ago.

 

Sorry about the antialiasing, I forgot to turn it on when I took the pictures. And concerning the lights up above, there is actually a ladder against a wall for a servant to light them. And he hates his job. :P

:laugh: Classic, poor fellow probably needs a vacation.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Have you released anything for singleplayer using these editors? I'd be interested in checking those out.

Except for some levels in E.Y.E (which is not released yet), I never released any singleplayer maps. All my levels were for multiplayer games/mods (Half-Life, Natural Selection, Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, etc...).

I designed some singleplayer levels before but I never publicly released them as they were pretty rough and just tests with entity setups, environment prototypes or effects.

What did you do for TF2? I've probably played it. I play customs a lot and have done some myself (koth_sandvich is one;) )

 

I'm also working on keybinds that match hammer, but space bar can't be used (camera control in Hammer).

Colour me intrigued, BD, I've finished Flakebridge so I'm jonesing for some more undead levels so whatever you're up to I'm looking forward to it!

      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.
