Broken Glass Studios is proud to announce the first public beta release of The Dark Mod, a medieval steampunk stealth game inspired by the Thief series.
The Dark Mod team started work on the project in September of 2004. Their goal was to take id Software's Doom 3 (id Tech 4) engine and completely transform the sci-fi / horror shooter into a medieval, steampunk, stealth experience.
With the release of The Dark Mod: Beta 1.00, we are offering the modding community a powerful, easy-to-use editing suite for creating stealth missions. All the assets and resources necessary to build playable missions are included, plus a customized editor called DarkRadiant. A branch of GTKRadiant, DarkRadiant has been designed specifically to cater to the needs of Dark Mod mapping.
In addition to the editing tools, the release also includes four playable missions (including a Training Mission) to help demonstrate the full potential of the mapping kit.
The Dark Mod is in a beta release stage at this time, which means that some minor bugs and incomplete features are to be expected.
To see screenshots, or to download The Dark Mod, please visit http://www.thedarkmod.com/ . Or visit our forums at http://www.modetwo.net/darkmod/ .
We hope you enjoy it!
Just when I started to think the countdown was a trick.
EDIT: Feels like the download speed gets slower and slower...

Take a bow, you maniacs!
Hahah. I still have so much FMs to play. But if time comes, I'll give this thing a shot.
Thank You Thank you Thank You
I have Doom3 on my big PC that I never connect to the net for sec reasons.
Internet is handled by a weak atom driven linux surfbox.
So I cannot download with your TDM updater - I would prefer some kind of a more usual
While I understand your updater is in place to handle the first storm of traffic, I would like to ask if there may be a more direct/usual way of download in a couple of days ?
On one hand, this sounds exciting. On the other hand, I have no idea what to do with it. Is there anything for me to play? Or can I only try to make my own missions? Does it come with a tutorial? Sample missions?
Amazing, well done all!
Wish my computer was good enough to run Doom 3 properly. Or even Thief 3 properly, the game I bought this thing to play.
Maybe I should try Doom 3 again. Just because it didn't work properly on my computer five years ago doesn't mean it won't work now, does it!
Anyone has a list of the files and their sizes? Just so I know what to expect. I'm currently at the tdm_models2.pk4 and it's taking ages to download. Any other large file like that?
Excellent! Getting it down now.
Time for you to sit back and for us to enjoy.
(Got to be next weekend to download though,
My brand new satellite broadband running of truck batteries and inverters way too slooowwww.)
Eh... the Dark Mod released? WoW...
Now some negative comments. The updater is AWFUL!!! It's slow, slow, slow, slow... Insead of giving us a gigabyte chunk, we have this... what about redistribution then?
Is the Dark Mod really free
1.4 GB? My God... And still downloading with this updater instead of going through the T2X way...
