That proves it, we Germans have good taste!! :D

 

This goes in line with the fact that we have a massive influx of new clearly German forum members. I guess this is mostly due to the coverage of Gamestar. This is the biggest gaming site in Germany, after all. Also, Chip.de is a fairly frequented site, so those two heavyweights alone should generate a lot of traffic.

My Eigenvalue is bigger than your Eigenvalue.

Well, Germany -- You won this one ;)

 

Country, downloads, total population, downloads per million persons in that country

 

Germany, 2514, 80.4M, 31.3

Finland 361, 5.4M, 66.9

 

Conclusion:

If the amount of downloads correlates with playing activity, the population of Finland is over twice active TDM players than the population of Germany! ;)

Sotha, that's just because it's so cold that nobody goes outside in Finland resulting in more overall gaming activity. ;-D

 

I'd like to add that it is not only cold, but dark, too. That spawns a lot of stealth gamers: people feel like home in the dark gloominess... ;)

Gentlegermans,

 

Things have changed. It looks like the call of Slashdotia has been heeded. But hey, at least you once again showed those pesky Frenchmen.

This is using a geoip2, which has a slightly newer db than the one I was using earlier. No more silly names whee.

I was about to say too, I bet at least half the Tokyo number are friends of mine that picked it up off my FB announcement.

 

Interesting that the first US city is waay down the list, Austin (my former univ & hometown yay! And definitely not surprising). Goes to show how spread out US players are to still be the first country. They're all out in suburbs all across the whole country.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

A few comments from the PC gamer article worth posting:

 

 

The only Thief game I played is Thief 3, which wasn't terrible, but wasn't very good either. The whole time I was playing it, I could tell (even without having played the other two games) that it was inferior to the others. I just knew, somehow, that I was getting a watered down version of a different experience. The Dark Mod is what Thief 3 should've been, and what Thief 4 should be. I can see now why so many people complained that Thief 3 didn't have rope arrows; they are literally my favorite part of the whole game. I really like the way The Dark Mod can be scary, empowering, disempowering, and challenging all in one mission. Sometimes all at once! I'm happy knowing that I technically never have to stop playing this game, what with all the community content that will surely be produced in the future.

 

 

I've been playing this non-stop since it went 2.0 (and a little before that) and I'll have to say that this is seriously good. For those of you who loved the Thief series I would highly recommend to play this! (I've still yet to complete Thief 2 & 3 myself)

I've been playing through the missions (on expert mode, naturally) as they have been released (http://www.thedarkmod.com/missions/?sort=releasedate) and you can really see that the authors have put some serious work into their maps.

I completed the first part of "No Honor Among Thieves" last night and I was completely knocked out by the level of detail and lighting! Some of these fan missions can structurally rival maps from the Thief games, the architecture, the ambiance and even the dialogue is passable!

("Can't blame that one on me, wasn't even theeeeere!" ~ A Darkmod Guard)

If anyone loved the Thief series, they are going to get on well with this. Yes there are a few quirks that might need to be ironed out, but getting all this out of the Doom 3 engine is a massive achievement and well... I'm loading it back up now for some Sunday morning Taffing about!

Another download spike is going to hit us soon, I guess. The German gaming magazine Gamestar just posted a big special on The Dark Mod:

http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/thief/artikel/the_dark_mod,44861,3029213.html

 

I know we had Gamestar already, but this is a new article. I especially like the last sentence in the conclusion, which I'll translate for you.

My collegeau is excited about Thief 4, but I'll stick to this beautiful fan project.

That's an accurate and thorough review, showing the reviewer has played the mod and can evaluate it on more than a glimpse. That's respectable.

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
