Re: Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

Don't forget the time and effort put into tracking down the authors of various mods who released their work under CC-BY licenses as a result of OpenMW. https://github.com/OpenMW/UIX-R This is great, thank you! I'd personally prefer to release everything under CC0, just because when you're managing ...

Re: Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

Sure, I'm aware of all this, I'm just testing the waters, it would indeed be a years-long project. However, I see this possible, considering the community's been already able to recreate the engine and that there are free assets available to get started with (BlendSwap, OpenGameArt, Wikimedia Common...

Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

Hello, I've been just thinking (has anyone already suggested this? or does it already exist?) - how about making free assets and a complete game in the style of Morrowind for OpenMW, but under Creative Commons? Something you can just download and play, mod, reuse and redistribute however you like. I...

Re: NPC Jumping - How would someone do that?

I've never dealt with this, just thinking aloud: You can either try to make a clever if-then-else algorithm whose behavior will probably be easily guessable and exploitable as imec mentioned and you'd be dealing with all the special cases manually. or You can apply some general state-space-search al...

Re: Application: x1ph0z

Hello, nice to meet you :) My workflow was usually this: go to the bug tracker , find a nice looking bug, try to reproduce, try to find the source, make a new branch, try to fix, make a pull request if successful (or even if only partially successful, it's good to make PRs early so that people give ...

Re: Ambient Occlusion in Morrowind

I've been looking at the SSAO methods and apparently there's a whole bunch of them. Two interesting ones: SSDO - Improvement of SSAO such that approximates the global illumination, i.e. light bouncing off of objects onto other objects, kind of a holy grail of CG. That would be getting us closer to t...

Re: (Post 1.0) Kicking butts

Improved and ragdoll physics including dead bodies definitely a want by me too. From putting buckets on NPCs' heads to playing basketball with cabbage, it adds a ton of fun and potential for self-imposed goals, which I always appreciate greatly in games.

Re: Ambient Occlusion in Morrowind

It's supposed to have a falloff as the depth difference between regions increases exactly to avoid the problems shown in those Far Cry 3 screenshots. I know it was over the top in Far Cry, I meant to show clearly what it looks like when it fails. However even with falloff the problem is still there...
