What sort of ideas for treasures do you have for the land across the sea? Mayaincatec golden idols and amulets? Ancient relics? Massive jewels found in blood-drenched altars where the natives worship a flying snake covered in feathers? And that's just the southern area. Further north, dark forests where tribes survive the harsh winters in heavily fortified caves, while special fast zombies called Wendigos lurk outside the walls, or bein hired by a mages guild to steal a medicine man's magical trinkets so they can be studied. Maybe stealing a crate of valuable furs from trappers in a Menoan frontier fishing village on the coast.

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

Sounds more like a modelling idea for loot. We could do with some exotic loot.

I have an eclectic YouTube channel making videos on a variety of games. Come and have look here:

You don't need to model things to be able to create fms. You just need to learn how to use the editor and some setup stuff. Much easier then modeling.

You can write some fan fic. Telling a good story will give a lot more ideas and inspiration than asking questions.

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

So long as things are treated with respect. I wouldn't use the name Wendigo for something like a zombie, for example. The Wendigo is a much greater and more frightening being - you could probably get a whole mission out of trying to avoid the Wendigo's influence or people who have been affected by it, come to think of it.

I would think Maya temples and Aztec gold would be better suited to Thief gameplay.

Offtopic: I still wished there were more FM's that were thematising pagans. I know, there's a lack of models, and also that modelling nature is a difficult thing, still... the pagan levels in the Thief games had a unique atmosphere, and there's also much potential for great stories in the "pagan universe". Already love the hints on "barbarian attacks outside the city" in many FM's. :D

We have a couple AI, but no vocal sets. We have a character model I never got around to rigging that could be added to the game--but rigging is quite a chore, and I don't want to do it when there are no vocals to make the new character usable.

Oh, I don't know how to model. I'm just sharing ideas to inspire those who can.

 

Nothing inspires more than images. Take a look in the Editor forum at the Inspiration thread.

Are there any players from Europe with European accents that could provide voices?

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
