I don't think I'll be doing much in the way of mapping until the end of this year, but I'd be happy to assist contest participants with scripted effects.

-=CONTEST COBBLER PACK=-

Need a SPOOKY street for your DRACULA or WOLFMAN?

Mileage may vary but we got a variety of sepia stained sooty, grungy Pavers, Kerbs, Cobbles & More!

I'll probably never finish my contest mission in time, but hopefully this helps you finish yours!

DOWNLOAD

wow these look great!  I always wished there were more/better choices for these in the base game.  I have an FM in progress but there is no way it'll be ready for the contest, I'm too slow :-(. One of these days maybe the timing will be right.

I feel you there!

I have found attempting to participate at least a very good way to get something focused and rolling even if it is somewhat undermined by the inevitable impossibility of it ever being ready in time.

Which is to say participating in spirit is still participating in my book!

Well the main problem is really that it's kind of big, and I'd have to totally change the 'story' to fit with the theme.

Maybe I'll 'participate' by downloading and using your cobble pack regardless 😈

Yes, psychological horror is fine. To be clear, the mission doesn’t even have to be horror themed. You could just have a heist set in a late fall season ( for example ). It’s up to the mission author to convince players to give the mission a good theme score so the mission could completely ignore the theme as long as players are happy with its inclusion in the contest in some way. And really, going out late and stealing stuff is also already a creepy activity so any other horror attributes are a bonus to the default creep factor.

I do have some cut content from a mission originally intended for my Shadows of Northdale campaign. I have wanted to rework it for a while and this seems like a perfect opportunity to put it to good use. So provided folks are okay with that, I will enter. Half of the mission will be brand new and half will be from the existing map.

 

And of course, I have prepared a video!

 

This is insane cool! 🙂

      It's funny how perception changes over the years. I've been replaying Bioshock in its Remastered version, and I'm surprised how bad the level design actually is. It's just a series of abstract corridor mazes that you can't really map out in your head. There's nothing that would ground them in any kind of reality, fictional or otherwise, no sense of place people could live in. It's almost like Wolfenstein 3d with cool art deco assets.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
