Architecture is mostly done and some sparse interiors exist. There used to be more interiors, but they were lost during an incorrect backup overwrite - screenshots of some of those interiors can be found in #2 to #10 of this album and in the .pk4's screenshot folder (which is the reason why I personally have little motivation to recreate them, rather than working on my new & original WIPs). T

 

From a mapper's perspective, that's probably the worst thing imaginable. I'm crazy sorry. It looked great and I feel for you that you didn't want  working on it afterwards.

I just noticed this thread for the first time. Shouldn't "One for the gang" and "Seed of lodestar" be added to this list? Both are available from the beta board and could easily be adopted.

absolutely not until they are deemed abandoned by the authors themselves. And neither of these authors have done so, so no.

Maybe somebody should contact them then? Seed of Lodestar has been abandoned for about five years, and Aosys hasn't been active here for about two years...

What about Aosys? Anybody know if he is still around anywhere?

You could always send him a PM....

And what Datiswous (and Welli in another conversation) said is super important for this conversation and worth repeating: Just because a mission is unfinished does NOT mean it's abandoned.

If you want to list missions that are unfinished, go create a new topic, because it has nothing to do with this topic.

So what are the official criteria differentiating between an unfinished mission and an abandoned mission?

When the AUTHOR of the mission in question declares that the mission is abandoned... that's it. This is not that hard guys. If you didn't make the mission, you don't get to declare it abandoned, easy peasy

You can read that in the first post of this topic:

I don't think you have read it yet.

Indeed, I didn't bother to read through all the pages of this thread when I stumbled onto the end. The good news is that I just contacted Aosys and he will consider finishing "One for the Gang" himself :)!

Is a mission which was declared as "abandoned" also autmatically declared as "others may continue to work on it"?

Sorry, don't want to cause even more confusion. ;)

No. You submit it to flood, who manages abandoned works, who then distributes the abandoned FMs to those who ask. This is all information that can be found in the original post of this thread

Some time ago I downloaded an old mission, called Yan's Test. By the name and content I think it was an intent to use a Quake Arena Map in a Mission. The mission is full playable without big bugs, but naturally requires some improvements, not so bad at all.

Yes you can see the link to the download on this page:

https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Fan_Missions_for_The_Dark_Mod

But it has absolutelly nothing to do with this topic. Please stay on-topic.

Yan's test are not in the mission list in the Wiki you mencioned, as I can remember I downloaded it from ModDB (not longer there). I mencioned it, because I thought that is only a Test Mision, as is not publicable, maybe because of the Copyright of the Quake4 map. But I also thought that, despite to this, with some mapchanges can be a nice little mision. But sorry, I'm silent now.

It is. I added it there. With a link to moddb where it can still be downloaded. Search for "Q4 Conversion: Yan's Test". It links to:

https://www.moddb.com/mods/the-dark-mod/addons/yantdm1-1

Bikerdude converted it to a tdm map. He could abandon it and add it here.

 

Or do you mean some other mission?

Ah, ok, I don't found it before, searching with the old Title "Yan's test.pk4". I think it won't be a bad idea to use it at keast as base of a mision, maybe changing somewhat the map if there are copyright problems because of the Quake map. Quite old and still not released in the oficial TDM List, I thought that it was an abandoned (test) Mision.

Would you mind to post a screenshot or two? I wonder how this one looks since we already talk about it.

Ah never mind there's a screenshot on the mod DB Page.

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
