The Intern's Story, is a game set in the classic Call of Cthulhu setting of 1920s New England as described by the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft.
The third chapter of the period story proposes to build a great looking set that is a fitting place to finalise the story from the fist two episodes that were built by myself with some excellent input from a small group of talented individuals.

Overdue update

3 weeks ago News 4 comments

I really can;t believe so much time has passed since the last update and for this I apologise. Be assured though that work on the mod has continued when time and inspiration have converged.

Some welcome news for TIS 3 is that I have come to an arrangement with the outer gods of time and dimensional accounting and by sacrificing a portion of my sanity, I have managed to increase my weekend by a whole day! I have not given an official name to this new day yet but I plan to use it as a TIS 3 dev day. So far these extra days have proven very productive and I feel that the final episode has moved significantly closer to completion.

So what is new if anything?

I have reintroduced a Sanity loss element to the mod that was proving difficult to implement in the very early design and had dropped. It still needs a bit of polish but I think it should provide an interesting route for the storyline.
I have managed to find a limit cap to the entity level I can use in a particularly large map that was causing problems on a random basis. That entity limit is 180% of the maximum recommended by Hammer, btw. This has forced me to remove some areas and discover a really useful builder tool called the 'func occluder'.
A lot of time has been spent on the problems that can occur when trying to have a very open multi-path map. Making sure that the logic of one discovery does not conflict with the players future actions has been mind bending.

So, as the tempo of production rises, let's hope it's not as long before the next major update.

Hi everyone, As usual, it has been too long since I posted a progress report. So here is something short and sweet to provide proof of life.

As promised a review update. Having attempted to test all the TIS 3 maps in the new Valve SDK, I have to report a significant failure in compatibility...

So I thought it was to be lost forever, But then as the moon waned in the month of November, I again ventured into the broken dimension of Source SDK...

Much thanks for the interest people are still showing and even though I have nothing from TIS3 to tease you with, there have been a few nice mods I have come accross during recent research into replacement huds and other concepts, that I think are worth sharing.

You should get some influence from Skyrim's Apocrypha.

Awesome stuff Quinjet, just played the mod again a day ago, very stmospheric and immersive. You've done great justice to the works of Lovecraft.
Still looking forward to the part 3 conclusion!

Thanks again required then. :)
As it happens this week I am unburdened by the chaotic forces of my employer and intend to put in a good shift on TiS3. If it goes well enough there may even be an update.
No promises though.

Thanks for being so patient everyone, it really is just real world demands that are holding this back at the moment. Oh to have a simple 9-5 again. :(

Will keep you posted of any major progress but atm it's just some redecorating here and there when I get the time.

All the best,

Happy Mythmas to you all.
Work continues but only sparodically due to the need to earn money to eat and fight off tentacled foes.

Cool mod with nice ambiance, it's worth the play.
EDIT : Part 2 is even cooler, this mod is a really nice piece of work, I was really pleased to play this, and can't wait for part 3 :D
