Everyone thinks their own native language is better that others, mainly due to subjective reasons: people are better at speaking their own language and it feels familiar. Other languages are complex, weird, full of inconsistencies and illogical.

 

Finnish for instance is a very nice flexible language, which is pronounced as it is written. You don't need to bother to think about word order and you do not have to remember articles for nouns (der, das, die). However, it is difficult language to a non-native talker learn it fluently due to it's complex grammar.

 

Maybe everyone should learn esperanto, since it is probably on of the most logical and easy-to-learn languages around.... :laugh:

That's not always true; I studied both Latin and Ancient Greek and found them both enjoyable to learn, since they are extremely logical and fairly flexible (Ancient Greek being far more flexible than Latin). On the other hand I never liked French, since it is difficult to pronounce and so full of redundant silent letters than you wonder how anybody can understand it when spoken aloud.

Yes, it's apparently very easy to learn but unfortunately you are unlikely to get much opportunity to speak it with anyone else.

Depends whether you want to hang out with language nerds, sci-fi language nerds, or fantasy language nerds...

 

The degree of choice is overwhelming!

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.

      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      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported.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!
