Pffftt. I was always taught that it was because the cost of real estate was based only on the extents of the ground floor area, so they "cheated" the system by bulging out the upper floors.
That Verywell Could Be The Case Nowadays.
The answers change across history of course.
you come to a tall black (runic/metal?) spikey tower in deep chasm, later you go in and fight in semi-open dome, not dm4jam_breezeep, not dm4jam_bloodshot, not unforgiven

Really black structures in dark backgrounds doesn't look good without bumpmapping. Some kind of lighting is needed to make its shape recognizable.
What's The Status On Https?

It was quite easy to set it up on my server...
System Shock 1 Source Code RELEASED (MAC)
For those interested, the source code for the original System Shock (1994) has been released. Please refer to here for all future mod/code-delving discussions:
Synopsis: MAC version only, but all game logic is present. Night Dive Studios to release a mofied version of the source code at a later date for free to anyone who owns the System Shock Enhanced edition. This will bring much needed features into the game directly in NDS's port for PC.
I for one, will enjoy using this to help with my fan remake to help replicate a few details in the game: http://www.indiedb.com/games/citadel

P.S. Citadel is my other project I work on when not mapping for Quake or updating my Keep mod. Go map! ;)
no https because someone MiTM-ing your func account and using it to shitpost will be the hilarious af
hilarious af rn frfr famalam

Gor-Tiger Detected At 83m, Idle
Should Work On XP+
both System Shocks and first two Thieves a lot some 15 years ago (and both Ultima Underworld games before)
Remember Maddox, that angry internet guy with hilarious rants from the last decade and a half? He's an absolute joke now.
if you refer to me, remember that I have never had a bad word about a purple ox
Madfox > Maddox
Maddox is an interesting example of the "arc" internet celebrities seem to go through, from getting an audience by rebelling against the bullshit of their day and thus fulfilling a public demand for common sense, to letting it go to their head, becoming out of touch, condescending to their own audience, and lashing out like fools (there are so many examples).
Madfox on the other hand, just consistently kicks ass. He brings Dr. Seuss to Quake. Btw Madfox I played your last map and loved it (lol the swarms of flies were awesome, layout was good too, atmosphere very retro), but I haven't had a chance to do any new reviews since the AD one.
I decided to a bit of spamming.
Not SleepWalker/TrenchBroom 1.0 release spamming, but rather Baker "slightly bored level" spamming.
While conducting some "I can't think of anything on Netflix" level boredom spamming, I post at ESReality and get flagged as spammer.
So I email, and who replies? Sujoy!!!
The Quakeworld rocket jumped out of lava guy!!
/Lame story ... perhaps ... but better than the nothingburgers the rest of you twats aren't posting.
/Oh yeah, fuck you. Figuratively. Like I figure that is the right thing to say. Because ... like seriously ... why is it dead silent here.
(Attempt UK impressionist post. Probably failed. Whatever ...)
Oh wow! I asked Sujoy to fix broken image links and he did!
/Better than you arseclowns! Take that, mankrip! Why single out mankrip you might ask? Well, if I said 'Take that Shambler! there is a chance he might ban me. So yeah, that's why!!!
like seriously ... why is it dead silent here.
Judging from the DM4Jam release, they're mapping. There's a lot of good momentum thanks to TrenchBroom and dumptruck's video series.
Kind of crazy that Sujoy is still involved with that site/community.
Fun to hear the old names... makes me want to go sit in the Stanford CS building basement playing 3wave CTF all night again.
I GOT THE FLAG!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not really old school -- I'm faux old school like a pretender that values the old school culture, but yeah --- wasn't there.
That being said, I did a double homage in the QuakeDroid thread:
This pic ...
1) Screams FitzQuake metslime.
2) I GOT THE FLAG!!!!!!!
I couldn't resist the CTF reference.
**** I GOT THE FLAG!!!! ****
@sock that looks tedious. I tend to func_detail and plan my brushes for detail as I go but to each his own.
I Agree... It's Quiet
I think it's because #tf Discord channel is so popular. i.e. ~95% of the conversations re: DM4Jam happened there.
rabble rabble discord ruins every community it touches etc
I love func and assume it's not going to change much (for good reason) but Discord makes it very easy to share images, links and embedded streams etc. it's really enticing compared to a simple forum. It's a different experience to be sure and func cannot be beat for archival information and its vast knowledge base.
Silence The Discord!
Wait wrong game reference.
