I personally think the font is appropriate, but I'll look through my font collection to see if another pops out.

 

BTW, I think you shouldn't use "Flood Ward" because, logically, when those covers were originally put down it wouldn't have been flooded yet, but the previous ward name... Not to mention not many FMs will ever be set there, and you don't want to limit its use. I'd use something more like Admin. Dist. or Hightowne Ward or invent an appropriate name for a ward or authority.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

St. Bauduin's Foundry (or a shortened version) would have a nice ring to it. ;)

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

As for fonts...

One of the gothics maybe -- Copperplate Gothic, Franklin Gothic, MS Gothic

As for stylized ones, that aren't so straight sans-sarif, I'm looking on dafont.com (or my collection from that and other sites; if one isn't on dafont, then search one of the other sites from inside dafont.com. They have a space for that). Ones that struck me as potentials were: Block code, Catenary Stamp, Impressed metal, Masterplan, metal block 3,Nashville, Nowarehouse, OptimusPrinceps, Reprise stamp, reprise title, square block, stamp, stencil, subway novella...

 

That doesn't mean I recommend them, but just to look at and think about.

On a side of metal things - what if mappers could assemble pipings from prefabed segments, corners, valves and so on, steam effects here and there?

 

Pipes are really easy to make in DR and with that there is the flexibity to twist them as one pleases. Steam is obtainable by simple func_emitter addition.

 

I don't think it would be very useful to prefab those.

I'm not that good with bendy pipes, so yes, they would be useful.

bendy pipes are easy. make cylinder. add vert density as required beforehand. grab a middle row of verts, rotate and scale them 45 on the appropriate axis, grab the rest of the verts on one side, rotate and scale 90. translate and snap to grid the result as necessary. make sure your 45 rotated verts on the bendy part are greens verts only unless you wish for a very sharp squared off bend.

Amazing work ST. Keep pushing forward :smile:

 

Edit: I had some problems using your stone textures. I can see them in DR, but they didn't show up in game. Do I have to pack the mission so they'll be shown?

@Bikerdude: I know how to do that. I was just curious if I actually have to to see them in game.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
