TDM Collection DVD


Recommended Posts

I was looking at my gamecollection closet.

And noticed that i dont have a gamedisc for TDM.

I want to create one.

So People can add this dvd in their collection and use it like a backup.


So I created a data collection.

I hope you can help me to create this object.

The only things are missing is a cover for jewelcase and your opinions.

Let me know what your think about this one.


You can find a list of the collection in the spoiler

Is the intention that the DVD will be burned/stamped and then sent to people by post (perhaps to get around low bandwidth limits in certain parts of the world), or just made available as an ISO image for download?


If it's the latter, I suspect many people will wonder what benefit it provides over directly downloading the specific things you are interested in and then burning them to whatever backup medium you find most comfortable (which might be an optical disk, USB stick or some kind of network-attached storage). Although I personally like optical media for backup, it doesn't seem to be all that popular these days, and if you're going to download an ISO just to extract files from it manually, surely you might as well just download the mod in the usual way?


On the other hand, having the DVD commercially produced and then sent to people who might be living in areas with low internet bandwidth might be greatly appreciated by those users, but I have no idea what the costs involved would be (I seem to recall Ubuntu used to offer such disks, but I don't think they are offering them any more).

For starters, i was thinking about an dvd iso (4,7 gb) so everybody caan download and burn it them selfs.

and a artwork for the jewelcase that people can print themself.


going to delete the 2.07 standalone package (3gb) and replace it with some nice missions.

but which ones?

It might be cool if someone made some good box art. In my younger days I might have even printed it out on cardboard stock and made my own box, in addition to jewelbox and CD art, but these days I'd be content with just having an image of it in my TDM fodder folder.

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

I imagined and scribbled my own back-cover, using the thief 3 dvd-backcover as an example.

(now i only need a better title and screenshots)


See the attached sample.

But i think other people can do better.

I recommend using hard disks as backup medium. They are more cost efficient and a lot faster than DVDs.

Just rember to always have at least two backups and copy the backups once per year from one medium to another to keep the data from fading away (both are good advice for backups on any medium, not only hard disks).

I succesfully downloaded the content of our wiki, using wget. (including working offline links)

wget -k -p -r -R '*Special*' -R '*Help*' -E http://wiki.thedarkmod.com
After a wait of 4 hours, its downloaded in a folder with 1,17 GB as foldersize.(and zipped its 760 mb)

When all the files are downloaded, the startpage is "index.php@title=Main_Page.html.html"

      Hello, Since this track is originally from TDM,i think it's better to ask here than TTLG. Do you guys have the full version of this ambient track?

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
