This page is actually linked to from one of the other module threads. It doesn't need a separate link.

The TTLG TEG guys have a repositary site for T2 FM objects, over 1000 of them. Is it possible to use or easily convert dromed-ready objects for DR? If so, here's the site. http://spirited-tech.com/thief/

Don't know if is the right place for this but was trying to find links about terrain techniques for games and found this links, could be useful to any TDM idtech4 coding guru when trying to implement a terrain system some day, btw before anyone thinks, no i'm not implementing terrain in any game or engine, just curious about this stuff.

Blessed be thee. I wanted to look up something there a few days ago just to notice that the site isn't available anymore. Good to know there is a backup, as this one has proven to be very useful.

I just found a resource that can remove lighting from photo textures but it requires a model as well.

Might be useful for photo-grammetry assets on free sharing sites etc:

Anyone know of any tool like this that does not require the model too ( AI based, etc )?

An alternative that I just found is this zip of the website on
https://www.moddb.com/downloads/iddevnet-archive

Now also from the TDM server:

A duplicate site is currently hosted here:

Thought I'd try this again :) 

It's been awhile, so I'm very rusty. Now with a better pc I should be able to tackle the water problem I had 10 years ago. Komag's tutorial is still here somewhere? Has it been updated since 2011? I remember having issues with the icons to the left, not looking like they were supposed to, but now I see I get a description too.

I can't remember how to get the 3 box view. Got the camera to the left & the big grid view, but I remember I could see 3 grid views & the camera. This is gonna take awhile to figure all this out again :)

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
