The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest ? ( POLL ADDED )


The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest Theme  

33 members have voted

  1. 1. What theme do you prefer for our 15th Anniversary Contest?

    • Free for All ( no theme, let authors do whatever as long as it has the 3 standard ingredients of story, gameplay, and visuals )
    • Thief 1 mission interpretations. Make missions inspired by Thief 1 missions but obviously alter the story, setting, and geometry to avoid IP issues.
    • Horror Contest. TDM started in October so it is fitting to have a horror theme to celebrate both the anniversary and Halloween

This poll is closed to new votes

I always loved the "connections" theme and I think it is very fitting to celebrate TDM. It's a shame we can't have 4 polls per thread because then my proposal would be to have free-for-all with a "connections"-rating added that evaluates how well the mission integrates into or expands upon the existing lore.

I wouldn't be in favor of that because adding bonus points would basically make it mandatory, and would defeat the purpose of "do literally anything you want" if that option wins the poll.

My missions:           Stand-alone                                                      Duncan Lynch series                              

                                      Down and Out on Newford Road              the Factory Heist

                                                                                                  A House Call

                                                                                                  The House of deLisle

Looks like "Free for All" is the clear winner.

Unless any potential participants object, I will close the poll this evening and prepare the contest rules and announcement.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
