I’ll throw my hat in the ring! It’d be delightful to create a mission to celebrate TDM’s anniversary, especially after how kindly I was received here. I’m excited to see what creative missions will be produced for the contest with the freedom we’ve been allotted.

The Poll on this is to demonstrate the intended design used in the mission release threads.

On an offtopic note: I always liked those, also in non-contest missions. Wished every FM author would add them to their mission release threads.

Good motivation for me to finally try to make a mission.

 

Excellent! Happy mapping and I look forward to playing it :)

Bikerdude has been coaxed ( nagged? ) into joining the contest.

He'll be using an abandoned old version of The Elixir that doesn't resemble the current mission at all as a base for his entry.

I can take the red pill...

Make a mission. Having some possible features:

  • multiple mission starter points
  • some sort of automap
  • teleportation between areas (why not?)
  • conversation / monologues  (yes: including subtitles)
  • x-ray screen(s)

Or,

I can take the blue pill...

I just wait for all the wonderful missions created and know I could be one of them, but I choose not to...

Okay, you fellow taffers.

I'm not promising anything amazing, but I'll give it a try. 🙂

I'd prefer to leave the Corbin-focused missions to Springheel and the rest of the main Corbin FM authors.

I'll use the contest as an excuse to work on that FM I was preparing for my Partners in Crime series.

@SpringheelSpeaking of Springheel - I wonder if he will manage to join the contest. I pretty much liked his first map back in the day. I am curious to see what he could do now with all his cool model asset modules.

When is the last day to turn it in? I just got started with Dark Radiant again, so I don't know how long it would take me. But I'm happy to Beta-test them :)

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
