Ambient Database

From The DarkMod Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This article serves as an overview of all the Ambients (sound loops, ambient sound effects, ambient music, etc.) available for mission building in The Dark Mod, via the DarkRadiant editor. Note that the editor itself doesn't house these crucial assets, it relies on the assets available in the base game.

Only the Ambients that are currently a part of core TDM (the base game) are listed in this database. Custom additions to Fan Missions, made by individual authors for individual missions, will not be listed here, unless they become accepted and integrated into the core game.

All of the entities listed in this database are current for TDM 2.05. Feel free to update the full overview to version 2.06 and higher whenever you'll have the time to do so.

Due to the length of the table overviews in this article, they are hidden by default, to make browsing easier. Click on the "Show" and "Hide" buttons of each table to either show or hide a particular table. You can show or hide as many tables at once as you like, depending on your needs.
