PBS show on how cathedrals were built


Recommended Posts

Its on tonight here in Seattle (western us) at 8:00pm so it might not be watchable online just yet, but i think they'll eventually have it up. Seems like it could have a lot of great ideas for modelers and map makers.

I've been watching the 16 part doc of "Climbing Great Buildings" on the BBC, there should be torrents up for all of it with good seeding. Was a good watch, most of the buildings are relevant to TDMish stuff and the presenting was good, nice ideas and background commentary.


"Churches: How To Read Them" was also ok, not as good but interesting if you didn't have a clue like myself :)

Also grabbed "Rosslyn Chapel, A Treasure In Stone", but haven't watched it yet.


I don't know what I'd do without good ol mvgroup :) I almost feel obliged to pay for a UK TV license just because of the BBC stuff, our localized BBC channels only have docs on once in a blue moon, and they don't bring in many DVD releases. Good 'ol SA.

Yeah - no worries, I'm paying for your BBC TV coverage! :laugh:


Actually it probably costs us almost nothing extra, likely earns from advertising? It just seems an oddity that we in the UK have to pay a licence fee even if we don't watch BBC whereas more and more the rest of the world can watch for nothing.


I'm just wondering how these new internet box > TVs work - do they show advertising in some form? Seems to me that ISPs will be paying part of the costs in massive download increases as more and more people watch TV on line.


I've never really got much into internet video because of my 5GB monthly download limit. Eventually I'll have to get another package with unlimited.

      Hello, Since this track is originally from TDM,i think it's better to ask here than TTLG. Do you guys have the full version of this ambient track?

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
