If you want to 'pay' or 'donate' for TDM, you can do so, but without money.

 

We accept all kinds of contributions from the community, especially mapping is nice. Make a small FM if you want to reward the TDM folks. We love it when new people pick up Dark Radiant and start mapping away. Here is a great tutorial which should teach you almost all that is needed:

Don't hesistate to ask help on the forums, too, we have a bunch of mapper veterans who gladly help newbies out.

Cheers!

You should advertise it a bit more.

 

There are still hardcore gamers out there that they are unaware of the TDM. Even I forgot about your project which I repeat Thief Series every two years. :rolleyes:

 

Your work is phenomenal and more gamers should enjoy this diamond.

 

Many thanks to all the contributors, I'll try to assist you in any way possible.

 

 

Spread the love! :wub:

I just have to chip in here - a huge THANK YOU for the modders and creators of TDM! :wub:

 

Having been a long time fan of the Thief series, I had heard a lot about TDM, but never got around to getting Doom 3, and generally skeptical of mods. But this is so good now - I love the setting, the darkness of it, and the fact it's Thief with a lot of improvements, not just graphics-wise. Love the mission downloader too, very flexible and open system.

 

Seriously, you guys should go for Steam and maybe even getting some $$$ for it - I know I'd pay for quality like this.

 

... even if my first post was a bug lol, but at least it's free :P

 

Thanks guys!

Thanks, will check that out and perhaps dip into mapping as well. Keep up the great work.

      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:

      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.
