Have you guys seen this article from Demagogue:

 

http://wiki.thedarkm...and_Plot_Design

 

Now this is some serious inspiration, and food for thought.

 

That article might need some serious summarizing. I am pretty sure it is very good, but I don't think I can muster the strength to read it all and follow it :) A few images might help tremendously making the material accessible.

I hate it when I post stuff just before it tips over to the next page, so the post I made is hidden etc...

Man we could do with this guy making some TDM mission's for us. (he did have a brief flurry with the Whiterose hotel that Springs is now working on), but man I love city missions like this. That said these shots are from a T2 mission in beta atm and should be released very soon ;-D

 

Or how about these ones from Purgator...

Thanks. I like to write on it every so often, and it still has incomplete sections. I feel happy writing & thinking about it.

 

I did think about making a (separate) summary version too when I finish, but I wanted to figure out everything I needed to say to know what to boil down. And yes, I did have some ideas for some graphical aids, simple plot diagrams, & screenshots of ideas taken from FMs too.

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

Here's what has been inspiring me lately using Google Images:

 

Bath, England:

San Gimignano, Italy:

And finally Cologne Cathedral in Germany:

Give me a hammer and tell me I have 6 hours to break up a 2 inch thick layer of ice. As soon as you walk away I'm going to use some hot water and salt so I can take a nap for the remaining 5 and a half hours. Taureans hate wasting energy and if there's a more efficient way to do something they will find it.

It looks like a weekend in Bath with my camera is due.

 

Is it waterproof? :ph34r:

Hey, it looks like they modeled that Italian town after the one in Assassin's Creed!

 

I was thinking the same thing when I first saw it. I stumbled across it when I searched for "medieval skyscrapers". The towns nickname is the Medieval Manhattan.

So I was rewatching The Crucible yesterday and thought some of the interior shots were quite well captured, and even though it's a slightly simplified set design, it is still very interesting to see how they organized the spaces, and specially the structural layout of the buildings, the color palette and the proportions:

A little bit bright but I thought this would inspire nonetheless:

Musical inspiration.....

 

I'm thinking of making a thief-style machinema video of this song. It's what inspired me to get back into game development.
