How easy would it be to import into into DR..? along with all the textures etc

 

Depending on the format it wouldn't be difficult at all. Making it actually playable would be quite another thing entirely.

Just a question, whatever happened to this guy, I've never seen him in any mission so far and I cant seem to find him in DR? I really like that model (the brown priest)...

 

Yeah, that's an early inquisitor model. He still needs to be rigged to the new skeleton, and some adjustments made. In the meantime, the acolyte (which wasn't in that shot) will be included in 1.08).

You could even say the gear is a mark of some sorts of Builder-manufactured armour.

 

I'm not sure builders would be in the armour-making business, but there's nothing to say that everyone with a religious symbol on their armour has to be a builder. Plenty of knights had cross designs in their armour or herald without them being part of the clergy.

That's right. Although I could also imagine the Builders, as a warlike and industrious group, supplying a lot of arms and armour to the authorities.

One thing I notice in those shots is the unified colour scheme. I wish there was an easy way to desaturate textures in the editor.

Yeah, it helps set the mood some, but i think it's a bit boring. TDM has much more of the colorful original feel which people like. T3 had the Batman look and it was one thing people complain about alot.

 

I think using the locations system to change the hue of the ambient light could work pretty well for that.

Pretty, nice shadows too. Couple funny things, they have door stopper models, and yet the unrinal takes a massive pipe and valve to flush. The spelled Energy wrong.

Mirrors are fuzzy and when the player jumped on the couch half the screen was blocked by, i don't know, hands? shoulders?

Looks great. I'm still happy we have our engine with the open source & unified lighting (as opposed to an earlier version of the Cry engine), but I can acknowledge things looking really good on other engines. But credit goes to the guys that mapped that. They did good work even for a WIP. Good-looking mapping is always inspirational to see.

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

That could be cool for 'flash back' scenes, or time shift scenes, or for recording intros, etc..

 

Can that be triggered in game?

 

Oh, yeah, can this be dynamically modified in real-time? Effects like desaturate, shift hue, adjust brightness/gamma, these would all make for cool special effects that could be used in a lot of situations esp. if you can access them from a script or SDK code for each frame.

It's not exactly a hotel though. The first time they showed the stairs near the beginning I knew it was the Titanic.

 

Never seen the titanic or the movie, but I would have guessed it is some sort of ship (even tho the exteriour seems not to match), and my first guess would have been something from the titanic era.

 

Btw, why oh why do they ruin a perfect video with the useless text about changing the wood color? Who cares about the wood color and wether they'll update it later?

demagogue: It is the Titanic? Ha! I only watched the start of it, but I was saying to myself that grand staircase was just like you'd see on old photos of that ship. (Never seen the movie.)

It is a Crysis mod the purpose of which is indeed to replicate the lush interior of the Titanic.

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
