I'm giving the communty ONE screenshot early before that big update the team website has planned.


07-14-2005, 05:44 AM
Now, I HAVE to go download your map now.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!! It pays to be on the DF Mod team!

07-14-2005, 01:13 PM
Must, Stop, Blue Lazer!

07-14-2005, 01:17 PM
Actually that shot reminds me of the movie Tron.

07-14-2005, 02:49 PM
Other than the, uh, "Blue Lazer," (which I assume is WIP), that looks amazing. I'd say that you got the ambiance of the exterior just right--between the darkness and those lights on the buildings, it has just the right flavor of prison-ish-ness.

Oh, and if the blue thing implies that the random floating platform that takes you to the prison now has a track (as I assume it does), I'm all for it, although if it's walkable it would kinda negate the security benefits of a chasm right in front of the front door. Good work! Can't wait to see more.

You are correct sir, a tram runs on the blue light beam, it looks much better in the game than it does in that screenshot.

The light beam also turns on and off when you activate the tram.

07-15-2005, 10:47 AM
Great screenshot, Fatspider!!!

I guess we can even improve the blue beam by some nice shader effects... :-D

07-15-2005, 01:22 PM
Man nobody mentioned the blue beam looked funny in the last update I posted on our FTP server.

Its the exact same one RavenSoft used in that train level.

07-15-2005, 01:29 PM
well, actually it does'n't look like a beam but rather like a blue bar.

I'll check again in game...

07-15-2005, 04:56 PM
You know I might have the texture set to "fit" and not "natural" that might be why it looks funny. I'll check when I get home.

07-15-2005, 05:08 PM
Another screenshot anyone?

07-15-2005, 07:11 PM
Holy hell! That's beautiful! And I won't get to play it for months, consarn it.

That... Is... Awesome...

What is it supposed to be? Some kind of mountain transportation system?

07-18-2005, 01:38 AM
I decided to make a new account, someone obvisouly already had my name, what I fool I was ;)
Anyways, anyone want to see a testbase screenshot?

07-18-2005, 10:06 AM
Pardon me, my drool seared a hole through the previous posts on this site...


07-18-2005, 05:59 PM
In reply to Cheech Marin, yes.

Tesla if you want to showcase something go ahead and start your own thread, they're fun!

I'll have another pic up by... Wednesday? I've got the next two days off from work that I'll be spending on the mod so look for another update around then.

The Mod team should post stuff like this a little more often, we need to support our commuity and show we are working on this stuff daily, up front. The major site updates are too far from each other and people stop looking.

WTF?!? Where have you been hiding all these screens?!? What hole did you pull this one out of?

SHWEET. I love it. Last time I saw a screen for the detention level, it resembled the original dark forces, sadly it still got me excited... actually, I'd rather not mention that last revision, especially after seeing what's become of it now. Either way... this just blew my mind away. What I like most is the dark feel that you THE TEAM has added to the level design. it just makes everything that much better.

I check the site evry 1 or 2 months, and have been somewhat bored, but now... I think evryone's still anxious to see this new update. we will find some way to get through the waiting process. episode 3 helped.

great job evryone, and kudos to you for the screenshot. you don't have to post any more screens... not unless you really want to.... in fact, I DARE you to post more screenshots.

here's my two cents. bye.

07-29-2005, 02:10 PM
I would love more screens but then I'm a screenshot junkie. Looking good so far, FatSpider. It definitely has that dark, mysterious feeling that the original level did just way cooler! Given these screens and the work we've already seen on the Sewers (awesome level, by the way) I have nothing but confidence it's going to be great!!!!

07-30-2005, 03:37 AM
Hmmmm. Looks like after 3 months I finally got my account activation email. Guess changing email addresses did the trick... Oh well, mod is looking awesome so far, looking forward to more dtention screenies.

Sorry this took to darn long, work has put me into overtime. Five people on my team left all at once so I've been busy with that junk for a while. I did manage to get around to fixing up this new shot for everone, and I'm afraid it might be the last one until our big old site update happens.




oh and the cell shading is tempoary, I was just messing around with it. Sorry if it got your hopes up. I don't think the team is going to approve.

08-07-2005, 05:15 AM
Nice screenshot, Fatspider!

Lol, about cell shading... DEFINITELY NOT!!!
It totally destroys the reality and the mood we try to establish in the levels.

We might rethink it at the end, perhaps for a DF Comic Special Edition ;)

08-07-2005, 08:47 AM
but release the mod before doing that special edition!!! :p

08-07-2005, 11:15 AM
Wow how did you manage the cell-shading though?

08-07-2005, 11:20 AM
The latest build of q3maq2 has the shader file you can use to make your levels look cell shaded.

If your interested I can give you a tutorial over IM.

08-07-2005, 11:52 AM
Totally shnazzy. The cell shading is awesome but I wouldn't want it as a permanent feature, maybe a something special. Awesome work, as always! What part of the level is this, by the way? It doesn't look familiar.

08-07-2005, 12:40 PM
That I'm afraid I wont tell you. Its not in the orginal per-say.

08-07-2005, 03:01 PM
Oh, phooy. :(

08-08-2005, 12:00 AM
If your interested I can give you a tutorial over IM.
I gotta install it, I'll catch up with you there..thanks

08-13-2005, 09:09 PM
I guess I'm going to post up ANOTHER, screenshot in about a week, next Wednesday sounds about right. Anyone on the team got a problem with that?

Salv I know you've been working on some nice showcase stuff.

08-23-2005, 12:12 PM
Are you telling me, you put a cel shader on around 30 textures, just for one screenshot ^_^

08-23-2005, 04:11 PM
I have no problem at all with you posting screenshots of your progress, that will certainly make happy our followers and raise the team's morale =D.
