  1. Still working on this I see!
  2. No idea how my mind does it really. Never really thought about it. I do write down quite a lot of things though. That does help for sure. That said, it is getting confusing at times, especially when having to keep up with changes in TRNG and/or plugins. Like for example I am now using the Classic Ring Inventory plugin. Which is awesome because you can turn whatever item into an examine item. But installing it meant I had to expand my script with lots of extra stuff and I had to test all items to see if they looked good in the inventory. I also had to make sure that items that are shared between levels look the same in each level. And I'm currently going through the script again, this time to make sure all Diary pages that contain info on the secrets are re-added to the Diary after a ResetHub leveljump. I recently found out that ResetHub deletes diary pages... As for keeping up with the plot, well, that's okay since I had already written out the story before I started these levels. Some minor things have been changed here and there but the big picture is still the same: Coastal levels, go inside caves, get back out to coastal levels, leave with dingy, dive to remnants of Atlantis, explore Atlantean caves and ruins to find Avalon boat, release boat and use it to go to Avalon, explore Avalon and it's caves to find Stone of Omphalys (basically the heart and soul of Avalon). Lara comes across some bad guys along the way, Gideon Barrett being the leader of the bunch and he is following her on several occasions. They are having a bit of a cat and mouse game going.
  3. Haven't been here in ages... Doesn't mean I haven't been working on these levels. Progress is slow, with all the covid related stuff going on at work and all that, but there is progress nonetheless. Nothing new to show though... All levels have basically been made and are done apart from cutscenes, some scripting here and there, dotting the i's and crossing the t's. Then there's Meta2TR work to be done (for more details and more textures as the wads are really getting stuffed...) and the endcutscene with credits. Sounds like it will be finished this year when I say it like that, but that won't happen. All these things will take me a lot of time to do unfortunately. I have 17 playable levelfiles by now...

    Landscapes

    Awesome picture! I love the colours! That would make a great painting really...

    Look at him go!
  6. No new screens, but I have been making some progress. Going slow these days due to studying AND working. Schools are currently closed over here, but I do have to provide my classes with online lessons. Which for some reason take more time to prepare then regular lessons... And uni is still going as well. Also with online sessions instead of lectures at the school itself. Even had an exam the other week, which I managed to pass in one go. Not a very high grade, but still, got that one in the pocket.

    Awesome pictures George!
  8. Looking very good, George! I like the big "finger" plants in this last screen.

    That thing crawling out of the sea, was it a crab? One of those crabs that collect all kinds of junk to make a sort of shell for themselves? Loving all the pics!

    The Garden

    That looks like rosemary there in the first picture. (on the left and right) Is it? Or rather, was it? If you like plants in your garden (which will also attract birds), may I suggest the "prairie" garden? You first plant grasses and plants, then put a 10cm thick layer of little lava stones (porous ones) around. Cats won't use it as a litterbox, plants grow like crazy, but seeds from weeds won't get through so it is low in maintenance. All it needs is a complete trim in later winter, when the bulb plants start to grow (snowdrops, daffodils, crocus) and show their leafs coming through the lava stones (if you put those in as well that is...) It's really lush!
  11. I hope he'll show himself if he's okay and now that his game has been released.
  12. Happy New Year to you as well! DJ-Full told people he has died... Has TC14 been in touch with Jon? Btw, DJ just asked me if this rumour has been confirmed. He thought you had taken up the project because of Jon passing away. But that is not the case I see.

    Birds

    I meant at our coasts. Plenty of coastline here. Including the islands. Although the northern Wadden Islands wouldn't be suitable anyway. Very shallow around them, at least at their southern shores. Apart from the canals (right word?) used by ferries to go to and from the islands, you can often walk from one island to the next or to the mainland at low tide. Mudflat walking it is called in English I think. Not that you will manage to stay dry when doing so, and you risk losing your shoes if you are not careful, but there are places where you can walk. Well, wade...

    Birds

    Learned something new today. I knew about the female-like appearance and becoming flightless but didn't know it was called that. I wonder if there's a Dutch word for it as well. Our ducks always looked dreadful when going through this phase. "Amputated" wings, only a couple of tail feathers left, shabby. One of the ducks we've had once started moulting in December, right when it started to freeze. Poor thing was shivering she we kept her inside for a while! She died the next summer. A duck going into eclipse in the middle of winter is not a good sign... something is not right then.
