The Dark Mod team is very happy to announce that we will be releasing a Pre-Beta Demo relatively soon. Members of the team have been quietly working on preparing a Pre-Beta Demo mission for public consumption for some time now. The tentative release date is January 15th, 2008. Please keep in mind that this date could change if we do not deem the release 'stable'.

Several months ago, TTLG's Fidcal began working on a small mission, called The
Thief's Den. We found that it was playable as a real mission. We were
so pleased with his work, that we asked him to begin readying it as a
playable pre-beta demo. We thought we might release it for Christmas,
but as things usually go...this wasn't really attainable...as we wanted
to release the best demo we possibly could.
You will need doom 3 installed to play the demo.
The demo includes all the files needed to run this TDM map on your doom 3
installation. This means that the download will be a bit hefty,
300megs...but that's actually kind of small for a demo these days.
It is PRE-BETA, so please don't expect a fully polished game. While the map is fully
playable, lots of things in it are placeholders (the voices, many
animations, etc) or WIP (like AI behaviour). It is likely that there
will be all kinds of forseen and unforseen bugs as well.
That said, the map is chock-full of atmosphere and is a great taste of what TDM will be capable of.
For anyone who cries out....FILE SIZE UNACCEPTABLE!!!! Future Fan Missions
will be much smaller when the mod is released, since players will
already have the full mod resources installed on their systems.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Dark Mod. We love games like Doom III that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
