So either we let him join and run the risk of him possibly disappearing, or... we don't let him join and make it certain that he disappears. Hmm, let me think about that one... :rolleyes:

 

I'm sure it is frustrating seeing people disappear, but nothing ventured nothing gained.

 

The more skilled beta mappers the better, and I think the screenshots show that he meets the "skilled" criterion.

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

Hi Guys,

 

I'm Venus - real name Chris.

 

Wow, cool... Thanks... certainly didn't expect that result lol

 

Ok, a few things about some of the things you said first. As for the name, well its pretty simple, Venus is a hellish planet, not only a goddess lol... So I chose it because of the metaphor of the planet. lol..

 

As for disappearing, yes I did... it was cause of finances, I lost the net for 10 mths... a matter of financial priorities. As for disappearing volantarily, not gonna happen. Mapping for a thief game is what I've always wanted to do. So I don't think I'm about to bolt lol..

 

I'm a male, yes lol... from australia, as for age, well lets just say I've been around the block a 'few' times. lol I have heaps of free time, so I spend it on art alot... or games, mapping, reading abot nature of reality etc..

 

I started mapping about 2 years ago, n the great guys from map-centre.com were the best teachers... Some great mappers there.

 

So thats me..

 

Glad you like some of the stuff I did... can't wait to get into doing some mapping. :)

 

Venus..

Oh, and another thing about disappearance. I think the fact I came back as soon as I got the net back speaks volumes about my intentions ;)

Always. :)

 

lol.. I don't know if any of you saw the stuff I sent to Horizon. So I'll assume u didn't.

 

This was part of a pass the map I was involved in over at Map-Centre.com

 

The first is the entry I did for my section. The other two, are two views of the room inside that entry.

 

It was inspired by the work of the spanish architect, Guadi. A truly amazing artist.

Ahh! I was wondering what happened! Good to see you back then, you have my vote of full confidence :)

 

Actually, those shots were from a couple of maps I was doing for Return to Castle Wolfenstien.

 

Dram, havn't I played with you in Thievery a few times?

Venus

 

:D Yep, and I told you about Darkmod etc hehe.

 

Oh, and another thing about disappearance. I think the fact I came back as soon as I got the net back speaks volumes about my intentions ;)

 

Venus

 

Yep, so you have my vote :)

 

 

 

I think it's safe to say we can set him up as a beta mapper?

BTW, do you know of a good 'free' no strings web hosting service? Or file hosting, that I can use to

put up screenies for u guys?

 

Also, I want to get started on a TDM map (regardless if u guys accept me or not lol) , so I was wondering,

what is the dimensions of the player in map coords? Also, if u've got a preference for a type of map

you are looking for.

No problem, glad to see your interest :)

 

You can use www.imageshack.us to upload screenies. It's permanaent too, so yeah, try that one.

 

As a reference, just use char_hazmat from the right-click list. We're in the process of changing the AI sizes (some are too big etc) so yeah, they'll be about that big.

 

As for minimum hallway width for ai to fit, 32x32 will be what we use in the future, but for now the ai use 48x48 (way too big).

 

As for map preference, just something like Thief - go wild! As far as I'm concerned though, those screenies (and the previous one we saw those months ago) are enough imo to get you Beta Mapper.

 

 

I'd say set him up if noone has objections.

Thanks mate... cool, that site worked great :)

 

ok, got all that... sounds cool... ok now I got the site, here's those screenies I mentioned.

 

This was part of a pass the map I was involved in over at Map-Centre.com

 

The first is the entry I did for my section. The other two, are two views of the room inside that entry. The last image is the outside of the large mansion interior above GTK view.

 

It was inspired by the work of the spanish architect, Guadi. A truly amazing artist.

Nice :)

 

Guys, so are we going to set him up as beta mapper?

 

Thanks Dram. YES!!! lol..

 

Another question. What is the height of the mantle limit, and will he be able to jump mantle? If so, whats

that height? Also, whats his jump height?

 

A suggestion also. Firstly for TDM. Is the rope arrow been coded yet? Would it be possible to allow the player to swing on a rope arrow? Or, jump out, grab it and swing to ledge etc.

 

Secondly, for Dark Radiant. Could you add the ability to use a bounding box to select verts in patches? That entry above would not be possible without that feature (it was done in GTK 1.4). I'm sure you can see the advantages. In the same vien, a wish would be, that I could toggle off the verts on the far side (half) in cam view so it makes it easier to manipulate without accidently altering those on the other side. Also, could you please give it the ability to select faces akin to GTK 1.4. In 1.5, it takes twice as many clicks to texture multiple faces as it did in 1.4. More clicks=more time. Be cool if the first n last of those suggestions were added. :)

 

Thanks

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
