Thank You FM Developers!


Recommended Posts

My wife and I are HUGE Thief fans. We play the same maps at the same time so we can kinda feel like we're thieving around together.


We are enjoying your maps like you wouldn't believe. We did go through the DarkRadiant tutorial, and we both made the small test map, so we know how much work you guys all put into it. We apprecaite it GREATLY as without TDM we would be playing TDS over and over and over again right now.


TDM tops TDS if only for the arrow rope return alone ... but MANY other aspects put TDM at the top of our list.


I read something about Thief 4 coming out ... initially excited, but after consideration, I actually have little interest in it .... hopefully they won't ruin it .... TDM is complete satisfaction and I have no need for anything else. TDM is still going to be overall generally more enjoyable as you FM developers put so much into our enjoyment .... Again, Thank You and Happy Holidays!

Great to hear! If you feel more ambitious, there is a map-making contest for beginners just starting up...we already have one husband/wife mapping team around here, but it would be great to have another. :)

Too Kewl! - Is it us you are thinking of? or another couple who have actually contributed a map? We were pretty heavy into DR for a while about a year ago .... posted lots of questions and did end up with a good starter map .. you know the tutorial test map ...


No thief in the real world actually works alone .... She and I envisioned a massive multiplayer online city map server where thieves could work together, share hints, buy and sell items to each other, etc .... Sure wish we could hook up with some of you for some thieving together ..... We have played Thievery as a family now for years ... my two kids, wife and I all work together and have many maps, but the old Unreal 1 engine is dated graphically.


If we had the expertise, we were working on a TDM FM version of T2's "Life of the Party" ... TTYL! - Darrin

Spring was probably refering to greebo and angua . They got a nice map that hasn't been released yet ( but I won't say more) and they released The Outpost, which was one of the earlier releases and a fun map.

They also happen to be a large part of the scripting talent, so probably anything you do in game has had their touches behind the scenes (the stuff that matters the most).


It would be cool to see a map from you guys. It's pretty easy to follow Fid's tut and make at least a small playable mission to share.


Anyway, it's always to hear feedback, thanks!

Dark is the sway that mows like a harvest

      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.
      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.
