Hey you DarkMod lot!

I finally got the TDM working :) I've played the training mission and I'm really REALLY impressed!

I can't believe it took me so long to get here, but I will be playing every FM I can find, starting with yours Biker!

Also whichever one has the ship in it?

And I will probably regret saying this.... but I will be checking out Dark Radiant too :)

Wow! - You are really welcome Saturnine! :) And I really hope you get into Dark Radiant. If so, start with http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=A_-_Z_Guide_Index

 

The ship is in the second level of the NOHAT campaign (No Honor Among Thieves.) Enjoy! But hone your skills in the trainer first if you haven't done so already.

 

With great power comes great responsibility Saturnine. We expect great things from you. (no pressure of course. ;))

Don't forget to spread the Word so we get other new enthusiasts to enjoy the fresh, excellent and modernized Thief experience!

 

And I really hope you get into Dark Radiant. If so, start with http://modetwo.net/d...-_Z_Guide_Index

 

And don't try to struggle alone with possible mapping problems, we have a nice and helpful editor community here.:ph34r: Help is only a question away.

Hi!

 

Great to see you dropping by - really enjoyed your missions for Thief. :) Take a look at DarkRadiant if you are interested in editing; it is a really user-friendly app with continuously improving features and an expanding resource base.

O holy crap, Saturnine...

Welcome to the Dark side. :ph34r::laugh:

 

The 7th Crystal was an early FM for me that inspired me quite a bit.

Fortunately DarkRadiant is a pleasure to build with (IMO), very stable, even just for tooling around for fun.

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

hey Sat,

 

good to see you dropping by. you should deffinately mess around with DR. we'll probably have another 2 month contest coming up sooner than later. a great way to cut your teeth on the editor and support TDM :)

 

but even if you just enjoy playing tdm it's good to have you drop by.

Sats....

 

What took you so long, have fun with my 1st and 2nd mission's wait till you see the next batch I have lined up..

 

:laugh:

 

@ TDM at large - as some of you may be aware young Saturnine got so good at making thief missions that he got a job working for a software company...!! I am both excited and honored that we have such talent joining our little community.

 

So that's Komag and Saturnine, who else of that caliper do we have that has joined the dark-side..?

 

:ph34r:

Well, I don't know if I'm that caliber, but my grappling hook was in '7th' wink.gif

 

Melan's here. Uncandonego is getting TDM fired up (though finishing dromed stuff yet). pretty good grouping of old school taffers so far. I think Yandros seems borederline but that's just forum post speculation on my part.

 

Digi's messing around with Unreal alot, wish he'd try tdm instead.

Woohoo, welcome Saturnine! The 7th Crystal was one of those watershed moments in FM history, and Rose Cottage was just, well I'll run out of expletives if I had to describe how good it was! laugh.gif

 

Really looking forward to seeing what you can do in Dark Radiant (if you do take the plunge that is).

Re: Rose Cottage, I should have mentioned. My Darkmod FM (Patently Dangerous) came out on the same day, Halloween last year. Actually 4 FMs came out on that day -- it was a special day -- but RC was the highlight, of course. I didn't mind being overshadowed, but actually I thought it was very cool to be a part of a day like that.

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

Thanks for the welcome guys, I appreciate it :)

I'm loving the training mission, I'm awesome at archery and suck horribly at rope swinging!

I'm looking forward to taking a look at DarkRadiant, I'm currently working on an updated version of Rose Cottage with all the bugs fixed :)

But right after that I'll definitely check it out and work through the tutorial.

 

Thanks again everyone.

Hey Saturnine, as long as you'Re here, let me ask you a question. At a local DVD store, I recently saw this movie:

post-684-128882820342_thumb.jpeg

That image must clearly have been your source of inspiration and I really wanted to compare the house in the movie with your recreation of it in Rose Cottage. Apparently that movie was a total joke (3.6 on imdb OMG) and the house didn't even appear in it. So to get to my question, is there some story behind the choice of that scene? Is it based on a movie of some sort or was it just a random image you've found on the web and used for inspiration?

Holy crap, that's EXACTLY the house in "Rose Cottage", detail for detail!

 

Here it is again:

EDIT

Here's another site with it

http://www.djibnet.com/photo/been/haunted-house-349431864.html

 

"From EuroDisneyLand - Paris"

 

EDIT

...and here it is - it's the "Phantom Manor"

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_Manor

 

and now I have to say that Saturnine's recreation of it is impressive work!

Heh? What´s the title for that movie?

"For sale by owner" like the image says... ;) But really, it's total crap. Probably a low budget production. 5 or 6 actors and all the movie inside a non specified house that you don't even get to see from the outside. Total waste of time!!

 

Thanks for the info, Komag. I wonder if someone has to pay license in order to have that house displayed on a cover. Saturnine really did great work here!! I was very surprised myself when I saw that cover at the DVD-store, as was my girlfriend, because I showed the beauty Rose Cottage to her before... :)

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      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.
