DarkRadiant 1.1.0 released


Recommended Posts

I'm glad to announce the availabilty of the next DarkRadiant version 1.1.0. A truly massive list of improvements made it into this release, so I strongly recommend upgrading to the this newest version. Grab it from our project website:




Important: if you haven't installed DarkRadiant before, be sure to install the VC++ 2008 Redistributable Package in order to run this release.


The (long) list of changes can be found on the website: Changes since 1.0.2 and on our bugtracker changelog.


As usual, please report any bugs or feature requests here in these forums, following these guidelines:

  • Bugs (including steps for reproduction) can go directly on the tracker. When unsure about a bug/issue, feel free to ask.
  • Feature requests should be suggested (and possibly discussed) here in these forums before they may be added to the tracker.

Have fun!


As probably not everybody is reading the changelogs, here it is for reference:

Massive list of improvements? No kidding!

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

I've updated the Ubuntu repository with a version for Karmic (9.10) amd64. Other versions can follow when I have figured out how to build them on my system here :)


Edit: @greebo: Great news, thank you!


Edit 2: Packages for Ubuntu 9.10 32 and 64bit should be up, compiled with the fix for the disappearing brushes.

Short-cut key for "rotate and scale" from the modify menu.


What is the shortcute key, or if there isnt one how do I add it, or this cant be done can I make a request for this to be added please.


The R key would be preferable, as the current binding for the R key isnt that usefeull as the rotate reticule tool dosent snap to the grid or predefined degrees of movement.


Or failing all of the above, how do I make DR remember ALL(inc the rotate and scale window) of its open windows.

Yeah...I don't think there's a 3d grid feature in DR yet. You can bugtrack it as a feature request.


HL2-Hammer had a 3d grid option on the camera view, but I don't recall using it very often. I used it for brush alignment and measuring if an orthoview got a little cluttered, but that's it.

That's exactly what I was going to post... :D I can think of one tiny use though. If you somehow messed around with the camera and don't know in which orientation you're looking anymore afterwards, you can easily tell by looking at the horizon introduced by the grid. But well, that's really the only thing and a mapper shouldn't get confused by his own map in the normal case.

Sure is! "Filter All Brushes" would be necessary, unless the grid was an overlay in one of the editor-rendermodes, visible through all geometry. I prefer to have a look at the orthoviews to see how I am oriented though.

I've come accross a bug, today the zoom in the YZ side window stopped functioning, it still worked in the other windows, so I closed the window, then I just couldn't get it back did the usual create a xy top window change it to YZ side but it wouldn't change, just kept switching between xy and xz, had to reinstall radiant to get it to work.


Having looked at it again I seemed to have corrupted the keyboard shortcuts somehow, which caused the window to bug, I deleted the settings in the application data in documents and settings as the file there seemed to be causing the problems

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
