So I played your mission and it's great, felt just like thief 1, amazing. I got so excited about it, that I started playing around with hallways. I've always loved courtyards in castles and mansions, so I started making one. I've spent about 4 hours on this so far, making and remaking the ceiling.

But now I have to go to work, so I won't be working on this probably until like Monday :(

Thanks AH. Glad you enjoyed it. :) Those ceilings are great! Really promising. I'm looking forward to seeing this progressing. One tip: we found that the shadows from these torches would be so faint and diffuse it's better not to have one at all. Try adding noshadows 1 to the torches.

 

I'm exasperated because I'm itching to do more mapping but have so many other things to do first. grrr... :angry:

@A: the ceilings needs to be a prefab :)

Even better, add a shadow-casting light to it, that simulates a soft-shadow :)

Nice to see the mission works for ya, us 64 bit OS fans don't get the benefit of the game working the FMs working at all. Very unknown error and there no way around it.

 

It's unfortunate that your system has trouble with the mod, but don't crap in my thread, you've made your point very clear in the other threads.

The Mod works on 64 Bit OS's, did we not already discuss this? Please stop spreading misinformation. We understand that it does not work on your 64 bit installation, but if you're willing to work with us we'll try to help you. If, on the other hand, you're going to do is keep saying it doesn't work at all, then nobody is going to give much thought to helping you. It's really up to you how you want to handle it. We're here, we're willing to help. Choose.

Done. After you update your local copy of DarkMod, you can find the prefab at: prefabs/architecture/roofs,canopies

If you guys can think of a better place to put the prefab, I'll change it.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
