I'm noticing wavy blotches around all/most objects when they are in front of the water: blackjack, ropes, etc.

What's going on here? Is it supposed to be that way, or is a shader or something else applying to more than it should?

I've attached a screenshot where the effect can be seen (top) and the effect highlighted (bottom).

The water shader used in this mission does not access the depth buffer. It needs to be rewritten but it includes a blur effect so it's harder to implement the change.

Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

I see.

Is the water shader in the core assets? I couldn't find the shader in the FM pk4 file.

Liking this mission, but I have an issue -

  Hide contents

I dug up the inheritance, read the will, but the phial does not appear next to the box.  What am I missing?

Thanks!

 

Have you tried looting it? The phial should appear directly to the right, then.

I did -

Spoiler

I frobbed everything out of the ground and read the will. But the phial is not appearing. The only reason I know that the phial should appear is by reading on this forum.  Is there something else I need to do prior to digging up the box? For the record, I have not noclipped - got to the box legitimately in the game.

Thanks.

Don't really know what's going on. Maybe youd like to upload the save somewhere like Google Drive, Dropbox or Onedrive - in that case, what TDM version are you on? What objectives remain uncompleted?

As a last resort you can force the script to happen via the console, but due to a bug you wont be able to make saves for the rest of the mission. Youre 80% done, though. Will need to look up the exact command.

I liked the atmosphere, build up of tension, without actual scares.
Although, when I started, and got into Captain's quarters... I read the readable and thought.... Okay, so there are 11 sailor thugs, only to find a lot more in the house, and wonder what the heck.
Maybe I didn't scroll it?

I liked the dialogue too, but I was a little disappointed that the interior didn't match the description, it wasn't until I returned for the first time did it change to match. And I expected some sort of ghost or ghoul to pop up.

Then the transition, and when I went looking for the spot, I noticed the way it was highlighted. =D That was pretty funny TBH.
Then - Two missions in one was a bigger surprise than I expected. How does it even work?

The only thing I don't get is the finale, but I suppose that's the point.

(I feel like you're not clued enough that the idea is that you jump down. Why would I run towards the fire?!)

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
