Training Mission Text Needs Editing


Recommended Posts

The text of the books in the training level needs a little editing.

There are a few sentences that get cut off. Maybe that's just a bug? Example in the melee book:

> Try to counter-attach immediately after your foe misses or is blocked, before

Also some of the wording is confusing, such as this part from the Gamma/Brightness book:

> The Gamma slider adjusts the mid range brightness the most and less towards top and bottom (which are anchored).

Would it be helpful for someone to go through all the training books and edit them to fix these issues?

Sure, it sounds like those texts could do with some finetuning, that'd be appreciated.

I've attached the .strings file which contains all the lines in that FM english.txt. There's also a short non-internationalised text left by Bikerdude at the bottom of this .xd file: training_mission.txt

If you want to test your changes ingame, change the .txt extensions and create new folders for them as below:

(Usually texts aren't that unwieldy to work with in TDM, it's because of the internationalisation of the text files of the "official" FMs)

      If you find the new Beatles song "Now and Then", which was created with the help of AI, totally boring, then you should better play the mission of the same name by our esteemed mission maker friend joebarnin, because the latter is actually a creative milestone!

      Idea: Thief 3 style missions.
      One of the great features of Thief 3 are missions defided in small segments with loading screens when you move from segment to segment. We all miss those right? I was thinking of mapping only horizontal, so not stacked. When you go up or down (stairs or elevator), you get a 20 seconds fake loading screen where you can play a minigame (The Builder's Blocks?). After that you get teleported to a different area that seems to be on top of the first, but actually isn't in the map file. It's much easier mapping, because you can see everything in one glance from above. This could also give more freedom building, because it doesn't have to fit. Everything is predictable because guards don't move to different sections.
      This could be used for the Thief 3 contest possibly..

      Just found out by accident how to change the tittle of a topic you made. You long-click (2 seconds) on a topic tittle, then you get an edit dialog to change the topic title.
      The other way I know of is to edit the first post.

      I always find it kind of strange that in DR you can't apply spawnargs on specific brushes (I think), but you can apply textures. But those are not listed as spawnargs, so they're difficult to see except if you select the brush and go into the Surface inspector.
      Wouldn't it be easier if DR would list textures for every seperate brush in the entity view?
