A Descent 3 easter egg?
« on: July 17, 2022, 10:50:19 PM »
From working on InjectD3, I have discovered a strange easter egg in Descent 3. The conditions to trigger it are obscure. In order to trigger it, you need to spend more than 4 hours on a single level and have the fast headlight enabled and turned on. At this point, if you look at a surface using the game's water effects, an eyeball graphic (freakyeye.ogf) will emerge from the fluid, as seen in the following screenshot:

I have some questions about this whole thing though... Descent 3 has been out for over 2 decades, and has had a fair bit of spelunking done on it, to say nothing of fan and official patches done after the fact. I have never seen any information about this easter egg though, but surely, within those years, someone must have discovered it and the conditions for it? Maybe it's lost in some obscure thread on the original PlanetDescent, or a long lost IRC conversation, or maybe I just suck at searching the few remaining extant forums...
