So I just registered to say "thank you" for releasing this outstanding game. Thanks also to mappers community - I've played about 10 maps so far, all of them were at least very good, and some are true masterpieces.

 

With doubts about quality of upcoming Thief game, I'm happy that there is a Dark Mod, which gives me same feeling I have when I play my favourites Thief 1 and 2, Bar above upcoming Thief has been set very high - well done.

Hi everybody!

 

Just wanted to say thank you so much everyone who made the dark mod possible and everyone who's creating fan missions.

 

I read about the mod some time ago but never got around downloading it. And when I heard it's now a standalone ... well, let's just say I can hardly wait for the end of my workday :D

 

Up until now I've only played the trainer and st. lucia (which was great btw) and now I'm delving into the Thomas Porter series (only played the first two yet, but I was really enjoying them and look forward to the rest).

Hi everyone,

 

 

I too just registered to say thank you! What you have created here is truly amazing and I like to thank you so very, very much!!! Playing this game brings me back to the good old days, where games were challenging and when you finally mastered a level you felt that you really accomplished something. In my opinion, nowadays game designers are too much concerned about people not be able to finish their games, so they make it so easy, or your alter ego so powerful, that it's just not much fun anymore.

 

Thanks again and loving greetings from Germany. If I could, I would hug every single one of you guys (and gals?)!!!

...and now I have to go back to the game... ^^

I'd like to add some praise to the pile, if I may.

 

I'd heard about TDM here and there over the last several years, but never managed to get around to checking it out. Then I saw the article on Kotaku reporting that the mod had gone standalone and decided there was no longer any excuse not to give it a try. It took a day or two before I was able to download the mod, but once I did I was immediately floored by how great the play experience is. Everything that I loved about the Thief series is here: the tense and open-ended stealth gameplay, the fun equipment and interaction with the environment, the moody aesthetic and sound design, all polished up and made fresh again. I've played through five or so FMs so far and my experiences with them have ranged from great to sublime. Even better, solid mod tools and a robust wiki to help prospective content creators guarantees that we'll see a lot more content going forward.

 

Many thanks to the Dark Mod team and all the various FM authors for your dedication over so many years to create the best mod ever :wub:

I'd like to say thank you too for this wonderful game! :smile: As someone who loves the original thief games I find this has kind of replaced them now and it's amazing! Don't get me wrong, the thief games will always have a place in my heart, but this feels like the next step in the right direction! Great work and keep it up!!

Registered also just to say thanks.

 

I'm an old diehard having played thief 1/2/3, and then spent a lot of time playing thief 2/3 fan missions. I never had Doom 3, so a standalone TDM is like christmas early. :D

 

Last night I played through the tutorial and st. lucia. Good Job. I have an old ATI card, so things were spotty, but nothing I can't tweak or live with :)

I have been following this mod for quite some time - once again thanks a lot for your efforts and gongrats on the standalone release. It is just absolutely glorious that there is such quality thieving game for linux. Hopefully there will be some further additions in the future in the technical front on linux and optimizations. This mod is certainly of worthy successor to Thief-games. Above all as a feature which stands out is the gameplay, it is very smooth and well implemented. So, great work and hoping for the future - and more attention and makers/players for the mod.

Thank you to all the devs, absolutely fantastic...and what an amazing accomplishment. I'm sure it was a staggering amount of work. Also thank to all that have posted your own mission, I've enjoyed many of them. I haven't played for a couple of years because of problems I has with getting doom 3 to patch correctly, but now it works great....I've been eagerly awaiting this.

I just want to add my thanks. I just learned about the standalone goal had been reached, and this is a major accomplishment. You've renewed my interest and provided additional incentive to finishing my mission. Thank you for all the hard work over so many years.

I would like to offer my thanks too. It takes talent, passion, dedication and time to produce any creative work.... good job. B)

So many people involved - programmers, translators, voice actors, betatesters... the list must be huge.

 

So my gratitude goes to to each and every one of you and long may the art live.

I just have to get something off my chest, and this thread seems appropriate for it. Whoever did the spiders, you've done a magnificent job. They are disgusting as fuck.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      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:
