about dragging the bodies

Hi, so what can I say? I love this mod and I can't wait new better and better missions. Great job guys:)

 

But...

 

Forgive me, I will write about flaws this time. There's one thing that annoys me: bodies dragging. It's so uncomfortable because there are problems with dragging the bodies through the narrow areas(door frames). Unfortunately the best way to transport the body is not pulling it, but pushing, but it's far less realistic... Pulling the body is difficult, ineffective, and it kills some of the immersion in my opinion, so why chose this option?...(;  I think carrying bodies known from Thief series is much better because it is more comfortable and quicker(player doesn't have to fight with physics). Why not implement it to the Darkmod then?;)

Frob an corpse and hit the "use" button, you will be surprised

In fairness, that gameplay wiki document is huge and the mention of this one, fairly obscure feature is way down near the bottom.

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

I like both the shouldering and the dragging options, they serve different purposes. I was playing Chalice and wanted to hide a body in the kitchen storeroom. To my surprise, the dragging lets you grab hold of individual limbs so that you can perfectly position a body just where you want it.

There, now no-one will notice.

 

This will make things like hiding a body under a bed so a guard doesn't spot it possible (I'll have to test this out with a guard patrol though, don't know if they would notice or not).

That servant's in for a surprise if someone startles him to wake him up xD

      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.
