Development Update

So after a week of patching, I feel we're now comfortably stable enough to let us proceed with some development... starting with new other worldly locations.

Where is this?
The above planet is something a lot of people won't necessarily be expecting to make an appearance. You get a big rack of Whovian points if you can pinpoint the location down by name specifically.

Over the coming week, I'll be gradually releasing snippets of info on the next big update, which should follow sooner than I was expecting.

There'll be a few more bug patches (Controls being unselectable is one of such issues, and the possible TARDIS Recall mode not always resetting is another), but until then, keep playing and enjoy!

Great to hear, can't wait.

Is that planet having something to do with the Silence? I saw a sound file for them :)?.

*world

Mister Master said...

is it Telos

Kris said...

No correct guesses so far, although Telos MAY be making an appearance...

Tarminuus said...

You mod is one of the best and most professional I've ever played. I haven't had this much fun or put as much time into a video game in months. Thank you for all that you and your team have achieved.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the picture is of the Death Zone on Gallifrey. I remember there being lots of mountains around it (as ziplining off of them is how the Third Doctor enters the Tower) and I imagine the structure at the top of the picture is the Dark Tower. Although due to the blue colouring I'm guessing it's somewhere colder?

Kris said...

You're very close. Ignore the colouring, as this relates to the heightmap editing in the worldspace generator of the New Vegas editor.

The Advisor said...

Tarminuus, i think the blue colour is just because it's an untextured model. I thought gallifrey at first because of the mountains and how closed it is. I think the death zone could be interesting, a good opportunity to mix multiple monsters in.

Kris said...

Stay tuned in the coming week for the answer.

Tarminuus said...

Speaking of the Death Zone, would it be possible to save the appearances of your past incarnations and have them show up randomly as NPCs (*SPOILERS* sort of like the intro to the Blue Box quest)? If so, you could arrange a Five Doctors random event.

On the theme of multi-Doctor stories, that image does seem similar to Omega's anti-matter universe from Three Doctors. Don't know the name of it though.

RedBird138 said...

The Matrix? Semi-wild-educated guess :)

Kris said...

Hi Tarminuus. This has all been accounted for, we have a very, very big update coming that will give you a lot of fun around this area...

Will the Neon console be featured in the next update?

Mister Master said...

is it altha Minor

Tarminuus said...

Awesome! I can't wait :P

Mister Master said...

is it alpha Minor From the Caves of Adrozanni

rhy6222 said...

What is at the Abandoned House?

HamTheBacon said...

I would like to know about that as well, I can't figure it out for the life of me what that house does.

RedBird138 said...

It was apparently an unfinished easter egg. I have my bets on it being something to do with the silence, since to me it looks like you experience some sort of amnesia...

Anonymous said...

Is it the diamond planet Midnight?

Kris said...

Nope...

Felix Mackle said...

For some reason Mars jumps to mind... Just thinking of the Ice Warriors.

Although, if I were to think again... I'm thinking somewhere on Gallifrey.

Mister Master said...

is it Peladon

echris56 said...

My guess is somewhere on Gallifrey. The Citadel? Between the Mountains of Solace and Solitude? Either that or the Town of Christmas on Trenzalore comes to mind. This is all assuming that there will be buildings in that valley that simply have yet to be added.

Twilson said...

is it Mondas?

Anonymous said...

Barcelona?

BVar said...

Metebelis Three?

Fabio Gonçalves said...

i think its trenzalore

Anonymous said...

Demeggy,

What about the bug that causes the console room to glitch out, caused by Nevada Skies?

Is it fixed? Or is it possible to be fixed?

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

Maybe Midnight?
Or it's just blue cause it's not finished yet.
I think it's the latter...

The Monitor said...

Hi guys, one more annoying update from the Monitor!

I've found the 11th hypercube plays the exact same sound clip as the 10th. The "don't blink" thing that Ten says.

I actually noticed this one awhile ago but I keep forgetting to bring up.

Sean Barry said...

Like Twilson, I'm pretty sure it's Mondas.

Cody James said...

I would like be a voice actor, if you guys need any.

I know, it's a gravel quarry! Like the many many gravel quarries that classic who took place in.

John Smith said...

just a couple things I noticed in the mod so far the first might just be something wrong with my comp but some daleks invaded my ship and when I tried attacking them aka committing suicide the game crashed. I have the nvse and the most recent patch installed so I hope some one can help. The other seems like it probably wasn't intentional if you put something in the extractor to increase biochem that isn't one of the 3 base ingredients (protein alkali, or acid)and extract it, it will stay the same item but still give you biochem exp it will not level you but you can go up to the required exp to lvl then toss in a carrot and level up. hope to see a solution to my dalek problem soon and thanks for the mod.

Scott Davidson said...

Reminds me of the Gusev Crater on Mars (Bowie Base One)

Anonymous said...

One thing I hope you add, the ability to cheat levels in for people who don't have enough time to farm xD I want to use my sonic screwdriver!

John Smith said...

well when you fly the tardis u can encounter ships if right after you destroy it you quick save you can basically choose your reward so that's a boost to exp if you want to do it that way I found the daleks only broke the game when i threw a spear of the sevateam at them but now when I try to enter the interior it crashes it was invaded by an alien that wasn't dalek or cyber men but I cant remember the name I thought it was probably just that alien that either is defenseless or has a tri beam laser but I can't find out.

Joshua Merrick said...

Something nobody expects...Clom? Who'd want Clom...

Novabeam23 said...

It would be kind of cool to see places after the story line of the show like a destroyed Bowie Base One and shiz nipz

basil burke said...

calufrax i think please correct my spelling on that

Mister Master said...

Alzarious in E-Space where the 4th doctor met adric

Anonymous said...

You're all thinking way too specifically. One person has almost nailed it.

Demeggy

Tarminuus said...

Based on the fact you said the Death Zone was close, could it possibly be the Eye of Orion, due to the Five Doctors connection? :P

BVar said...

Who was the person who almost nailed?

Mister Master said...

Time lord prison planet shada

John Smith said...

so fixed freezing interior by loading a previous save but noticed a couple more things the medical thing in the med bay is gone not sure if that was intentional or not but the annoying one is the bottle in the swimming pool some how glitched into the pipe so with out clip mode (which causes all kinds of problems if used in the tardis) I can't get it.

Aaron Fryer said...

Looks like the Death Zone from the Five Doctors episode. Would be pretty cool fighting other monsters in the zone.

Anonymous said...

Hello, may you please add a way to gain more regenerations??? but like its not going to be easy to gain these regenerations. Also everytime i go to skaro the daleks dont seem to be respawning so may you please check that? Oh and are there gonna be new tardis interiors?

Anonymous said...

SO SO SO in love with the mod :P the only thing i would like to see added (obvs as well as all your up and coming plans for the mod :P) is something,either a console room or outer shell that makes it more like the masters tardis, since we have the option to be bad it be nice to have a couple master styled console rooms :) but really it just be a bonus to see that on top of all the incredible work you guys are doing with this :)

Noah Watters said...

Hi Guys, I love this version of the mod so much more than the previous one! However, I have another bug for you, when manually flying in any of the control rooms (I have done 10 flights in each) I get the beeping noise as if I'm about to be attacked and a message comes up as if I need to prime a control or something but then nothing more gets highlighted and nothing blows up the result being as if autopilot has been activated but the screen still shakes. Also the beeping doesn't stop unless I switch the desktop theme. Keep up the good work!

Justin Steele said...

Raxacoricofallapatorius... I know that isn't right but boy was it fun to type.

TheWorriedWarrior said...

Like Cody James said, He's casting his voice up for acting, I'm doing so as well, heck, I'd do it for free, just uh, message me on the forum or something, I dunno. Thanks.

Leo said...

Also Getting a bug with no other mods on than this where I crash upon entering skaro, however I was able to enter it before

Twilson said...

I would gladly do voice acting aswell, again just message me over in the forums :D

Leo said...

Also The space time throttle no longer works on my save in the Coral and nautical themes

Anonymous said...

Where do you find daleks

Justin Steele said...

I too, as well as a great deal of us I'm sure, would be willing to voice act just to be a part of such a fantastic mod.

Anonymous said...

Gallifrey?.. Hopefully! :D

Leo said...

@anon you find daleks on skaro or through ship battles by taking the T.A.R.D.I.S. out of autopilot

Anonymous said...

Will the Classic theme be getting a control to set the time of day when landing in the tardis???

Cleveland said...

The sky trenches or the capital of gallifrey

Kris said...

Spent the past couple of days trying to get the grass that right shade of red. In other news, I start my new job tomorrow and Spyduck is exceptionally busy at work, so we won't be updating until Monday at the earliest.

Keep enjoying though guys, there's lots of fantastic content enroute.

O.m.g there is something with the Tardis that I'm sure not many people have noticed...! Very subtle yet effective to confuse me!

Demeggy is evil.

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

You mean the corridors?
Hmm, obviously not.
Maybe the bigger-on-the-inside?
Of course not!
What about the....
Crap ran out of ideas

Anonymous said...

Are you talking about the Master's TARDIS that kind of looks like it was gutted and turned into a paradox machine?

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

"SPOILERS"
lol

Alex said...

(?) SPOILERS (?)

Yes the corridors. They are not "linear" and some even teleport you to other floors (i think). Maybe I overreacted but it felt good figuring out why I got lost so often! :P
