Not really. :laugh:

I'm at work so sometimes "image hosting sites" are blocked... You should post some pics on your Moddb profile and score some intrigue points for the obsessive followers... :ph34r:

posted a copy of the loading screen for my contest fm

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

Well, my first mission is basically finished. I need to wait for the release of 1.06 before I can ask for proper betatesters, however. I created literally dozens of new assets for this map, and they'll be included in the 1.06 release. Here's a glimpse of the loading screen as a bit of a teaser:

The new usable assets include a dozen new animations (eat_carrot, sit_turnpage, bang_door, 3 sitting gestures, 2 peer around, lift_skirt, throw_dice, and a few new torch animations), new decals (scattered newspapers and distant city skylines), new models (large chandelier, new lanterns, a few special things) and a new character head. I can't speak for the quality of the mission but at least you'll see something you haven't seen before. :)

Should I be making any changes to door handling to accommodate this?

 

I assume you're kidding, but I was also thinking ahead when I made it...we had talked once a while ago about what AI would do if the player stole their key or locked them in a room, and this animation would work well for that. :)

Good stuff, SH!

 

The door banging thing sounds great - I would LOVE to use something like for a revenant trying to chase the player and being locked out at the last moment... =-P

Oh, you mean they "let me out" bang on the door?

 

I thought you meant they banged a door open or closed, which would need some speed changes on the door rotation, which is why I asked.

Really looking forward to your offspring, Spring. ;) From what I saw until now, I must say that it looked pretty damn good... I especially like how subtle your loading screen is compared to most of the other authors. :laugh:

I am sure the mission will be fine!

 

Speaking of custom assets, would you be willing to make a few small models for me, basically things that mix&match things we already have?

 

I am missing things like:

 

* a round lantern that you can hang outside, but which doesn't include the chain

* a variable length chain (or even better a short, 3-element version of our rope that we can dress up as chain to get a swinging lantern)

* a ladder with 7 steps (so you don't have to use the 4 and a 3 step together)

 

etc.?

Wait until you see it while it's animating.... ;)

 

I like the new face on that thief Ai, I assume that is new also..?

 

It is, but that went out already in 1.05.

Sure, but better post it elsewhere so it doesn't get lost.

 

Oh, you mean they "let me out" bang on the door?

 

Yes, it's banging the door with their fist--either "Hey, open up!" or "Hey, let me the f* out!". :)

Having a closer look at the loading screen now, that must be one big ass candle if it stands on the table. :D

 

Just a regular candle in the copper holder, I think it's just kindof a fish eye view. The candle is right in your face, but the thief is across the table and down.

Was just thinking that... clarify who performs such an action, guv? :laugh:

Intel Sandy Bridge i7 2600K @ 3.4ghz stock clocks
8gb Kingston 1600mhz CL8 XMP RAM stock frequency
Sapphire Radeon HD7870 2GB FLeX GHz Edition @ stock @ 1920x1080

That was merely a joke, but anyway, my bet would be that Spring had that candle in the grabber when taking the screenshot and he then cropped the upper left corner. :)

New rule:

 

Springheel must create new missions annually! (New missions = new assets :) )

 

@Siyah

 

You always post such great screens, I hope to be playing one of these one day :wub: ...

      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).

      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.
