Re: First ever MW playthrough-advice

For vanilla experience with OpenMW, and if you don't want to start with a long list of mods, I heavily recommend the Morrowind Patch Project . Despite the name, it's just one single mod. While OpenMW takes care of all the issues the original engine had, it intentionally stays away from game content ...

Re: Spellmaking and Enchanting: factor harmful effects as negative

As I understand it, the issues you all raise shouldn't be a problem necessarily. If, for example, I were to create a spell that heals and blinds, then if the healing effect is more powerful than the blind effect, it would be thoroughly ineffectual as a blind spell used on opponents. If, on the othe...

Re: Spellmaking and Enchanting: factor harmful effects as negative

Maybe I don't understand the question then. I think this can happen already: if you create a spell with both a hostile and non hostile effect, the game must make a decision, which of the two your new spell is (and which school it belongs to). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the game decides bas...

Re: Spellmaking and Enchanting: factor harmful effects as negative

Not really. It's sufficient to have every effect belong to exactly one of two categories, for which the hostile/non-hostile flag should be sufficient. The cost is then based on whichever of the two categories produces the larger total cost, minus some factor, like .5, times the total cost of the eff...

Spellmaking and Enchanting: factor harmful effects as negative

It is no secret that Morrowind has more than enough exploits already. But anyway: Many spells or enchantments in Morrowind, and RPGs in general, follow the idea that a strong positive effect must be counterbalanced by a negative one, e.g. Boots of Blinding Speed or Mantle of Woe. I think, it would b...

Re: OpenMW Nightly builds

So the question is, do we split up OpenMW and OpenMW-CS, or do we delay 1.0 until the CS has caught up? I strongly suggest to split as it should remain in connection with the whole project. Important psychological level. This would make the job on 1.0+ run better. It's meaned as advice. Feels like ...

Re: Performance issues on modern hardware (latest OpenMW Nightly)

How many FPS do you get? And what are your distant land loading settings? At least on my machine (which has a weaker GPU, but comparable CPU), those settings are key. With not too many cells to load and quite aggressive small object culling, it's still quite playable, rarely dropping below 40 FPS.

Re: Please bring back Fall Function

EDIT: Maybe a version of Fall in reverse, that tells the engine not to process physics on an actor, would work for everyone's purposes? Implementing a flag is typically not very hard, but I guess making it easily accessible may be. Like, do you want that flag on every single object? Then you'd have...

Re: Is OpenMW playable?

I don't think anything hacky needs to be done to allow a different animation for levitation. That's kind of the point of rewriting the engine ;) I agree though, that I would not prefer the swimming animation. But something like the WoW one, maybe. Though even there's none for movement, just standing...

Re: Is OpenMW playable?

In vanilla, the levitation animation is the same with walking, not running. Same in OpenMW, as far as I've experienced. You can toggle collision by opening the console and typing 'tcl' (without quotes) and hitting return. Swimming still has the correct animation when collision is off, so that's not ...
