Yeah, site got suspended for some reason so wasn't available and then lately you ended up all over the place. Weird, since it should have just taken you back to the free hosting company's main webpage.

Anyway we're now sorted with a new paid hosting site so hopefully won't have these sudden loss of the forum problems in future.

Thank you so much for keeping us in the loop and setting those things straight.

It's been four m@$%* days I was trying to welcome mountainblade in the "Introduction Section" but the boards were friggin' unavailable. Good God I'll do it right away...

Also I can see I don't have to repost my Avenger Faq (I would have re-done it glady honestly) so big thanks for preserving the Community posts. Seriously I could kiss you right now.

Well, well, just found out something I never knew about the game. We're discussing the turtles and squirrels that appear all over the place in TQIT over on the new forum and someone mentioned that the squirrels were used as a timing mechanism for quest events. Did the usual google thing and here's what I found, quite a recent comment from Medierra (November 2017).

"Without a doubt the hackiest thing I remember from Titan Quest is how we managed the event scripting. The quest / event tech had a major weakness in that there was no way to delay an action once it was triggered. So if you wanted something to happen 5 seconds after a player ran through some bounding volume, there was no way to set a delay. It would always be instant.

We were nearing the end of production, so it was hard to request additional features, as engineers were slammed just trying to meet their milestone deliverables. One of the QA testers had started helping out with scripting work, and figured out that there was in fact a way to delay an action from triggering based on the length of an animation.

He ended up using these squirrels we had as ambient creatures as the animation timer, and they became the default timing mechanism. He created an invisible version of the squirrel, which he would place in the levels where he needed them, then would time everything based on the duration of their idle animation. Because of his creative problem solving, he was promoted to designer on the next project."

And my guess, comparing the design teams of TQ and IT, is it was Dave Kondor. In the TQ manual he's credited as being Q/A - Design Implementation, but in the IT one he's part of the design team.

Wasn't me exactly Malgardian. It was Endymion over on TQF who mentioned it. I just googled and found the article he was referring to.

Interesting. So that's why there are quest related frogs in Lilith map, some frogs drop keys upon attack.
