Re: Desire to Learn Coding to Help

I was encouraged by Zini to just bash straight into OpenMW, by taking a small "beginner" task first, to get better in C++ and just to have a startpoint in OpenMW. Before I took any task, I tried to make small changes to the code here and there, doing tests in private builds before taking part in the...

Re: Ideal magic system

I've understood that OpenMW already has a pretty good support for Morrowind mods, so I wonder if there are some good magic overhaul mods out there? Has anyone tested them on OpenMW? Having real-time control on spells would require some features that are not in Vanilla. Any idea how would the AoE or ...

Re: Ideal magic system

If we are fantasizing of future OpenMW, it would be great for code to allow some customization of magic system too, to be able to expand from simple mana-based spell system into effect based system, or perhaps dynamically changing spell magnitude or effect, but it's a bit tough to create an all-arou...

Re: Ideal magic system

Creating a good magic system is both a game design task and research of mythology. Former part has to take in account things like media (eg. tabletop game vs computer rpg), flow, ui, gaming psychology etc. while latter is more focused on what the world view of the current fiction is. It's a matter o...

Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

That document is really nice, and sets great post 1.0 goals. These goals help to push the engine towards my hopes. I think the coolest thing about OpenMW, even better than being able to play Morrowind, or developing Morrowind-like rpg's, is that the code is open source and can be further developed i...

Re: Beginners' questions: Understanding OpenMW/OpenCS code

Well, I'm kind of in a deadend with osg-code with my level of understanding. There's also some fundamental value in learning osg, so it wouldn't hurt to actually get some skills regarding that. I didn't write the code in the PR for osg, my skills regarding osg are still below that. The fix you menti...

Re: Beginners' questions: Understanding OpenMW/OpenCS code

Fixing https://github.com/OpenMW/openmw/pull/1769 requires some osg skills, so, any guidelines? Where to start? What do I need to know? Where's all the rendering code for OpenCS (or OpenMW)?

I've browsed through some osg code, and played a bit with osg examples, but that's all.

Re: Terrain Editing

Here's an early PR for terrain texture selection. It's mostly Plutonicoverkills code, but I built it to work with recent versions of OpenCS, and did some small improvements regarding coordinates calculations to get the feature working.

Re: Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

I used the template for the starters of a project like this, and I can say it technically works, but it seems that there still was some Morrowind-related there, like some menu layout graphics etc, hud graphics etc. I wonder how it would work without Morrowind installed... Anyway, it seems it's still...
