Reviews

“It’s a tremendous achievement – a detailed tribute to the Thief series….  Projects like The Dark Mod are a way for those fans to say “if you won’t make it, we will” – to deftly lift what was good and meaningful about the games that inspired us years ago and run away with it.”
PC Gamer  “Mod of the year: The Dark Mod”

“this is splendid….it’s basically Thief…but in Doom 3. Even now, there’s a good couple of hours of classic immersive sim action here, and I recommend it strongly.”
– Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The Dark Mod has long been one of the most famous PC mods around. … It was great. Now it’s even better, because it doesn’t need Doom 3 anymore.”
– Kotaku

The Dark Mod releases version 2.02!

TDM 2.02 is now available!

This version includes a number of new features and bugfixes for The Dark Mod. Several exploits have been dealt with, such as a fix for the bunny-hop exploit by SteveL, and new behaviour that allows AI to notice if you blatantly grab onto a door they’re in the process of closing, by grayman.

A fix of a sound bug that was causing sound to drop off too quickly in large spaces (resulting in AI frequently ignoring noise arrows and calls for help) has also been fixed by grayman, and a new AI Hearing slider has been added to the main menu.

New Horizon has adjusted our blackjacking detection so that players are less likely to fail by being too close to an AI.

AI may notice that they’ve been pickpocketed, and will add that to their evidence of an intruder if you cause a mild alert while snatching something from their belt.

In addition, Springheel has added a new AI and vocal set (acted by Goldwell) for mappers to play with: The Moors.

For a more detailed look at the changes and improvements, see here: Changelog

To get the new update, simply run tdm_update.exe.

Note: Saved games from previous versions will not work under 2.02!
