Hi... I was wondering what we were planning on for fonts. Are fonts going to be specifically created for TDM, or are we going to use free fonts?


If it's the latter, I've just browsed through http://www.1001freefonts.com/ and picked out several fonts that I thought might be useful for TDM. I was mostly looking for handwriting, calligraphy, victorian, art deco and typewriter fonts. Anyway, I figured we could discuss which fonts we tend to like/dislike...


Here are some of the candidates that I thought might work.


I particularly liked the following:

I like Treasure Map, but am not incredibly fond of Parchment for some reason. I'd like to see Treasure Map added, but could go either way with Parchment. Just my two cents, of course, as the decision is not mine to make...


I see Treasure Map working (aside from the obvious -- Treasure Maps) for headers on outside posters, bulletins and the such.

Oh my!! That is a TDS font isn't it!??! It does look like the one they used in the menus, I think? LOL!! I totally didn't realize until now. Now it all makes sense :D


Oh yes! That is THE font they used. Check it out in the game files of TDS. Papyrus is written everywhere. It was a horrid choice. I don't know why the TDS team felt the need to change so many parts of Thief. All of these little details added up.

Avoid TDS like the plague!!! :laugh: I have nightmares about the parchment font.

And goddamn but if I don't see that font EVERYWHERE all of a sudden. Everything from the cover of a new book to commercials for local companies to actual store signs. I don't know if it's just because now I recognize it, or they just licensed the most popular crap they could find for T3.

I know it! It's just crazy to think about all the poor decisions that were made. You've lived and breathed TDS for years now with your minimalist project due to their mistakes! Not fun. I remember seeing those mission menus, the big font used, AND (now that you remind me) the 'totally NON-Thief' font style chosen and thinking to myself... WTF??

Strange, they no longer seem to work for me either... I wonder if 1001freefonts could have detected that they were being accessed remotely?


Edit: I've noticed that if you right click on each image, and choose "view image", it'll load the image just fine... I'm really starting to suspect that 1001freefonts has something in place to not send the image if the web-browser says it's for another website. Anybody know of a good way to bypass that?

      Hello, Since this track is originally from TDM,i think it's better to ask here than TTLG. Do you guys have the full version of this ambient track?

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
