  1. 1. Should small static oil lamps be exstinguishable up close?

    • Yes
    • No
    • Yes or no, depending on a new gameplay setting.
    • Yes or no, depending on how mappers define them.

I don't understand the seven years ago obsession either.

Maybe there is a good argument for allowing oil lamps to be blown out, and maybe there isn't. I'd be fine with it, but perhaps some mappers wouldn't. But the fact that it was discussed seven years ago is of no practical relevance that I can see.

Seven years is - symbolically - a lot of time. We live seven years twelve times. Twelve times to change course in a lifetime, if you like.

I have big respect for the - past and present - developers of the game. TDM is a marvel and the fact that it still is well supported is admirable. We decide what to do with our free time, preserve stuff in a Museum or visit a Theme Park. Thing is, one option doesn't cancel the other.

Seems like something a Builder might have. At the end of a worship service, blowing out the candles or licking your fingers and pinching them out doesn't seem reverential enough.

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
