thanks everyone for good words. I'll keep them in my mind.

 

I do hope you continue what you have started Siyah - the idea of a contest is to encourage mapping, not to make people feel bad about finishing. =-)

And you totally should. Again, very encouraging!

And to you too, Xcen I say the same thing - don't be discouraged - I love seeing things being made. =-3

Awesome screenshot, Xcen. Hope the actual FM will be on par. In that case, it will be more than worth the wait.

My Eigenvalue is bigger than your Eigenvalue.

Thanks SP! Even work in progress missions are good to see as it gives people ideas and gives them a chance to give encouragment. back. =-3

 

I love libraries designed like that, reminds me of the Oxford Union library a bit.

I must say, even with the tight deadline, this contest has been one of the most successful (and we haven't even seen the Bikerdude + Flanders FM yet). The missions are tight, well-written, look great and are a whole lot of fun. I am really happy it has turned out so well.

Siyah!

 

You are such a perfectionist :laugh:

 

Step back and repeat after me:

 

"I am SiyahParsomen. I craft masterful spaces and beautiful scenes. The Dark Mod community is dying to play what I've shown. I am good enough. I am strong enough. And gosh darn, people like me!"

 

Oh well.

 

Keep posting those pics too.

 

And we'll keep hoping to see the scenes for ourselves. ^_^

Digging that library, Siyah, digging it indeed. I'll have to spank Fieldmedic into building something similar for me one of these days, just so I can write a whimsical tale of a scribe trying to loan a book while dodging overzealous, sword-armed librarians....

 

One of these days....

Moin,

 

I mirrored the last two missions here:

http://bloodgate.com/fms/antr.pk4

 

Fidcal, could you please enter them in the DB in TDM?

I added those to the missions pages. (Spiffy new privileges :ph34r: ).

 

I'm not sure if that propagates to your mirrors system. :huh:

:D good for you, I am not sure I ever got permissions for that system.

It's just a file dump, so if you add the links to thedarkmod.com, the in-game downloader will know to download them, also people will see the link on the webpage. So all is good.

 

Only thing missing now is the wiki page, but I am not sure anyone still uses it - the ingame downloader is much more easier to use.

      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.
