Can't get FM missions to load

First off - really excited about this and want to support this effort - props to the team and thanks.

 

I feel totally ignorant but cannot figure out how to get the 3 FM missions to show up. The training mission is working fine but there are no others to load. I've downloaded the three FM missions and extracted them into the doom3\darkmod\fms directory. It's weird but nowhere in the .zip files are an actual PK4 file and the extraction process doesnt create a folder with the mission name and a pk4 file inside it like the training mission.

 

What am I missing? any help is appreciated.

First of all, congratulations to the Dark Mod Team, the Dark Mod is very impressive. Thank you!

 

I downloaded Dark Mod 1.00 and played the "The Dark Mod Training Mission" without any problems. I then downloaded and played "The Chalice of Kings", "The Crown of Penitence", and "The Outpost" again, without any problems.

 

After that I downloaded "Thiefs Den", "Closemouthed Shadows", and "Saint Lucia". I copied their "pk.4" files and inserted them into my "fms" folder so I could play those missions but they didn't work, the game didn't load the pk.4 files.

 

Is there any way I can play "Thiefs Den", "Closemouthed Shadows", and "Saint Lucia" with Dark Mod 1.00?

 

Thanks!

I understand. Although I think it's a shame that those other missions will eventually be lost and forgotten because they aren't compatible with Dark Mod 1.00.

 

Some good news:

besides 'Tears of St. Lucia' having been ported a while back already,

Fidcal took care of converting 'Thiefs Den' to TDM just yesterday, too. Ready for download !

 

I wonder if someone could contact Lord Savage to do the same for 'Closemouthed Shadows' ?

Don't think I've heard of that. Was that an FM made with Den assets?

see First Unofficial FM From non team member

 

I haven't played it yet, but given the fact it was the very first FM (sept. 2008)

I would say it deserves a place in the Hall of Fame.

Would be a shame if it disappeared into oblivion.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
