What kind of religious practises do the Builders have?

Title says it all. I'm looking to have a sound clip playing from inside a church prefab I've assigned to the Builders, and again in a large Builder outpost. The look and feel of the Builders seems to be middle ages Christians, I'm wondering if having a free gregorian chant track play from the inside of the church via a speaker fits the builders, and do I need to give any credits for the song?

Short answer: Yes, gregorian chants would suit them.

 

Longer answer: There is a lot of info about the Builders on the wiki, if you've not read it already: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Builders

Awesome, do I have to give any notes/credits for where I got the track from? I don't know the artist(s)

I got it from http://www.archive.o...CreatorSpiritus after doing a google search for 'free gregorian chant sound clip'. The text in the blue bar of the browser says "Internet Archive: Free Download: Veni Creator Spiritus - Gregorian Chant". That should be free enough, right?

 

The artist is "Gregorian chant performed by Portuguese vocal ensemble Coral Vértice (based in Lisbon, Portugal)."

Edit: I guess this means I can use it (tdm isn't a commercial venture), I won't be altering it, so long as I give credit to the artist. Would a link and mention on the eventual FM release page be sufficient?

If that's all the information they gave on the site itself, then by their own standards that should be enough. Just throw that information into the readme and you should be fine, possibly also the link to the site where you got it.

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

Actually, the Hammerites and Mechanists resemble medieval Catholicism. It was mainly the Catholics who were violent and force their religion on others. Not all believers were like that back then. Catholicism and Christianity are very different when you think about it.

 

 

Just saying. :mellow:

Assuming we're talking about the middle ages, all "believers" were Catholics. Unless you're talking about Waldensians, Cathars, or other heretical sects of the time, none of which lasted very long.

For the most part, yes. I may or may not be wrong, but I think some were not Catholic.

Not really. In my ecclesiastical Latin class, I constantly translate works of such a kind.

 

One of my previous bits of homework was about the Eutychian controversy. This old monk taught a subtle variation on catholic teachings, but only 3 years later he was denounced as a heretic and anathema. The Ecumenical Councils are ruthless.

 

If that's a bit of a downer, I can also tell ye a funny story about Bishop Gregory around the 600's AD.

well they wouldn't be druids, the romans did a good job of erradicating that religion, and those idiots that go to stonehenge every midsummer who claim to be druids, aint, cos they're worshiping the wrong place at the wrong time of year.

 

Same as those 'idiot' Christians worshipping the birth of Christ at the wrong time I guess. Like most things, religion evolves over time.

druids worship ash trees and lakes, did ritual human sacrifice and canabalism, and were celts, the stone circles were probably built by the picts although its not sure who actually built them, between 8000bc and 3000bc, who's religion was based on the sound of things and the winter soltice, two different cultures and religions.

 

So the druids who go to stonehenge to worship something they never built, and not at the soltices are idiots.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
