[2.08] New Monster Characters

Recommended Posts

TDM 2.08 comes with a wealth of new monster characters that’ll be sure to enrich future missions:

  • Manbeast by Kingsal
  • Werebeast by Diego, Springheel, Obsttorte & Destined
  • Clothed and running zombies by Springheel
  • Flame bearing skeletons by Springheel

There are some things to be aware of if you are a mission author interested in working with the werebeast or manbeast:

  1. The werebeast is only partially completed in terms of animations and vocals for now, so it’s recommended not to use it the same way you would a regular AI.
  2. Some important issues were found in the last minutes of this dev cycle, in particular concerning the manbeast (i.e. LOD and material definitions). The fixes came too late to make it into this release, so please download this patch and place it in your mission’s folder if you intend to make a mission with manbeasts.

If the patch was successful you’ll see a new top-level folder named after your FM in ‘Create Entity’ listing all the changed entities. There’s no need to extract the .pk4.

If you see someone working with the manbeast characters, please point them to this patch to make sure they’re using it.

Just FYI, your text is all black, which doesn't work so well in the dark theme.

Sorry, but it seems to work for me. I use the dark theme of the forum and I'm on Mozilla Firefox. What browser do you use?

Edited by Anderson

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.
