Released exactly when I was planning to launch a new editing session! Now that's what I call support! :laugh:

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

Awesome work. Some of the bugs fixed were really annoying, and I can't wait to try out the new floor feature.

 

I'm in a very happy mood :)

Thank you very much Greebo!

 

Can someone please tell me how am I supposed to set up my DR Preference Game settings now that we are no longer using Doom 3? Thank you.

 

EDIT: Don't worry. I got DR working now.

Thanks, greebo.

 

When I went to install the new 2010 64bit redistributable on Windows, the installer told me the version I already have is newer than the one I was trying to install.

 

I'm hoping what it meant was that what I have is the latest and what I was trying to install is the latest; it's just the error message that's badly worded.

 

The new floor feature is terrific, especially for path_corners.

Same here! I think it's okay since DR 1.8 works.

Wouldn't it cause any .99999 error, where collision box for chair legs will sink down, so chair eventually "stand" on seat box? I hope not.

 

I think nearly all the instances of objects falling through the floor are because the mapper tried to place the object directly on the floor, but the object ended up being slightly embedded in the floor. One touch to make physics kick in, and down it went.

 

With the 'floor' feature of 1.8, DR puts the object smack on the floor (or tdm_nodraw solid brush covering the floor, or onto the func_static desktop or shelf or whatever's beneath it), so when physics wakes the object up, it won't fall through.

 

My way of working is to hover moveables 1 unit over the floor, rather than on the floor, letting TDM settle the object properly at spawn time. I will continue with that because I'm comfortable with it. But being able to drop something to the floor using the 'floor' button, then bringing it up +1 is a whole lot easier than having to do everything manually.

"ko_script" spawnarg on AI. Or was it script_ko? Something like that.

http://bugs.thedarkm...iew.php?id=3297

 

Yep, resolved, it is ko_script. You need to fire a script command that sys.target($entity);

 

Alternatively, this can be done with the objective "AI is KO'd" and completion target.

So I can't let's say "ko_script light_1" to make the light go out, but I must create a script file which name I write into the ko_script entry?

ko_script starts a script command, so you need to have mapname.script that targets stuff with the script command sys.trigger.

 

The objective method allows the targetting simply via completion target. "KO AI with entityname bob" -> completion target -> any targettable entity.

Wow in all the excitement these last few days, I didn't even notice the new DR release.

Thanks for this greebo!

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

When comes the group objects feature?? :D

We had actually been discussing that way back, because I always loved that feature in GTK Radiant. However, it was decided against incorporating it. I think it was because we had the layers feature.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:

      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
