The Dark Mod Forums

Looking for recommends of areas that are outstanding looking so I can promote The Dark Mod via 360s panoramas.

Hey guys, I have this page on Facebook that I've been feeding with 360 screenshot from games I love, or games that look good.
I really want to show off and promote as many awesome indie video games by shooting scenes in their 3D worlds

Can anyone here recommend me some great maps that I can cover for my page? I usually shoot some 10-20 360s and then publish them sporadically mixed in with other games.

Here's the page so you can see how it works out in practice



thank you!

There is no shortage of great looking missions. These are some that I know of that have cool outdoor vistas.

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

I agree with above.

But for these pictures you need some precise directions to get to nice locations. i can faguely remember that TDM has a feature to start a mission on/transport to a specified location. dont know the command for it. 

How do you created those pictures, in a videogame? I always wanted to know that. For example, In real life I shoot them with the 360 feature of google camera on my android phone.

That's setviewpos / getviewpos. Can't live without them anymore 😁
But I'm afraid @Damjan Cd will have to play though these missions himself...

the commands getviewpos (and condump) and setviewpos works perfectly, for Damjan.
So people can now give Damjan their favourite places.

For example, one of them is just the start of the trainingsmap,
position "333.11 -1872.76 220.25   4.9 88.0 0.0"
onliner: .\TheDarkModx64.exe +map training_mission.map +setviewpos 333.11 -1872.76 220.25   4.9 88.0 0.0

it would be nice to automate this by giving someone a startup onliner, like above.
But the take doesnt take the setviewpos command.

You don't have to make it so complicated.

To use the example given here, start the tutorial mission. As soon as it starts, open the console (default "cntl + alt + ~"), and paste in "setviewpos 333.11 -1872.76 220.25   4.9 88.0 0.0". Then type in "envshot <filename> <size>" with some file name like "tutorial_screenshot1" and I need to experiment with the size, but I imagine it needs to be some exponential of 2 like 512 or 1024 (it defaults at 256, which is much too small to be useful), and you'll get the images in the "env" folder in your darkmod folder. I'm going to cruise around some FMs I like and find some nice scenes I'll edit in the setviewpos coordinates for later.

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

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
