Dink Goes Boating

The man in red worked for months to create a huge piece of paper containing scribbles in a weird language, but his left ankle told him to do it, so he did.

I told my self I would never review a dmod. But after playing Dink Goes boating I was left feeling like someone needed to stand up and tell the world that this Mod KICKS ASS. They say that someone can only teach others a subject once they have mastered it themselves, and SimonK proves this theroy true.

Dink Goes boating is an Interactive educational enviroment, dubbed as a TMOD. It usess redinks new engine thingie or whatever and displays the powers of that as well as the old dink engine. It has a built in tutorial function to explain how and why stuff is doing what it is and too show the user how to do it themselves.

The Tmod also has a bit of playability in it. A short quest to get a boat and explore the islands, and then to help the king and other familiar cohorts out with a infestation problem.

The only complaint I have about Dink Goes Boating is that the explantions of how the scripts work were going a bit too fast for me. However it comes with all the source code which can be reviwed at any time.

I've been playing dink and making crappy mods since it came out in 98 and this dmod even thought me some tricks. I think it would be great for starting players.
