*sticky this plz*

 

 

Share your ideas and plans for your campaign here.

 

 

I plan to make a sort of Hammer style keeper thing. somthing crazy. with amazing detail. like a 6 mission campaign. but i dont have the time to work on it all by my self so ill have to join a team of thief fans and start out on a campaign. i hope to have the tool set soon. :)

 

 

What are the beta mappers working on. just using the tool set as it is now or are they testing stuff out but also building campaigns so that we have some thing to play while we wait for more?

Well they have the toolset and pretty much make their own maps etc. Gleeful is making a 3 mission cmpaign afaik. Anyways, Beta mappers pretty much just make their own maps etc and give us feedback on the mod (what's stuffed etc).

I plan to ride on a flying pig to the end of the rainbow and dig up a pot of gold.

 

Health Warning: It might be nice to daydream about campaigns but unless you're planning to put in years of work, cope with endless frustrations and end up with roughly 50% of the grand vision you started off with don't bother.

Keep jumping on (instead of supporting) everyone who wants to make something with TDM and I'm sure that will do wonders for our toolset's popularity.

 

I wouldn't be so bitter about it ... to me they were just joking around, and even then mostly about Slash's free use of the term "official", not really about anything he was going to make per se.

 

Also, I think TDM's quality will largely be able to speak for itself ... It's not like the team is going to be policing what can and can't be made with it. Dromed never got a wiff of LGS support and the Editor's Guild is notorious for attacking the latest mega-projects; doesn't seem to make T2 FM-making any less popular. And even if some guys do appear to attack some projects with a roll of their eyes, sometimes mega-visions should be chastized a little to force the creators to defend them or at least think realistically about them. If Slash thinks what they said was unfair, he can try to convince them otherwise.

 

Anyway, this thread looks exactly like the one in the Off Topic forum, so my answer will be the same: http://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?s=&sh...indpost&p=61672

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

If a campaign can't survive a light barrage of sarcastic barbs from a few jaded old grumps it will never survive 4 years of development time. The Gauntlet of Grumps simply serves to seperate the proper campaign ideas from the half-baked plans of a 13-year-old hooked up to a intravenous supply of extra-sugar Sunny D.

If it is a serious project you are right. If somebody just assume the role of 'official' spokesman, even though he didn't even bother to ask us, then I think it is ok to step down on him.

 

The Grudge Mod never forgives. :)

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
