How great it is to see such talented FMAs joining forces to creat something epic. A really good campaign is just what TDM needs. I was wondering why Melan has been somewhat quiet recently. Glad to see his talents are been put to excellent use.

*dukenukemvoice* Hell, it's about time.

 

Epic reveal for epic official compaign. Yeehawww!!!!

 

Just so we are clear the officialness of the campaign is still being discussed within the team. However whether or not it is official will not effect it's quality.

regardless of official classification, I think to many minds, this will end up being "The" Dark Mod Campaign. No harm in that, methinks.

 

edit: This also explains the black hole that has enveloped several WIP missions that people have been waiting on, including yours, jdude :D

Uuh mama!

 

These are excellent news!

 

I will immediately start mapping the next Thomas Porter mission. My aim is to keep people entertained while the campaign mapping eats the majority of our top mappers' time. Consider it also as a big thank you for the people seeing the trouble of making a TDM campaign true.

 

If you see anything in my existing maps that might fit or help the campaign process, please feel free to grab what you need. I might mash up some general use prefabs as well.

Very cool. I don't really want to touch anything else until I release at least one of my missions but I could do some testing when you need it.

 

Edit: And I don't mean beta testing. If you want some early feedback on the maps, in whatever state they are I would do that.

Yes, Melan just posted it on my behalf (I was too sick to sit at the PC). I sent a PM to INtense and Henley (Moddb admins) to request that the article be authorized early. If not, usually it would happen around Midnight EST so we'd get at least 1 day (hopefully).

"No proposition Euclid wrote,

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
