Re: Improved File Format for omwaddon files

Sorry for the confusion: I'm using the phrase "simple file-tree copy procedure" as a description of what happens when two completely independent repositories are merged, whether it is by a "git merge" procedure or by a manual filesystem copy.... I will elaborate on this as well in a few days using ...

Re: Improved File Format for omwaddon files

Currently, each record is stored individually with filenames based on their TES4 FormID... I think this is mostly a problem with the fact that, if I understand correctly, you are more using this system for tracking changes and you aren't modifying the json directly. Modifying the editor to produce ...

Re: Improved File Format for omwaddon files

I'm going to respond to ponyrider0 in a separate post, as this is already quite long. Shooting from the hip here so feel free to ignore, but why not think of the game data as a database and an esp as a series of SQL statements? That is an interesting idea, particularly since it would likely be quite...

Re: Improved File Format for omwaddon files

Almost every time I do a bit of modding I think it'd be nice to be able to use git to create the ESP. And in the context of TR and PT, I'd like claims to be mergeable using PRs/MRs. Now I only did a bit of thinking and never implemented anything, but these were the steps/features I had in mind. Cre...

Re: Improved File Format for omwaddon files

I've thrown together an implementation of this, which can be found here: https://gitlab.com/bmwinger/espmarkup. An example of the output can be found here: https://gitlab.com/bmwinger/ncgd I considered working from within the OpenMW tree to start with, but decided against it for now. A brief look th...

Re: BSA tool in rust

All you had to do was ask man... I guess I'll make a point of it that 0.46, nightlies and rest all ship with it. . Thanks, that sounds great. I get distracted easily, and find communication difficult, so I just kept putting it off in favour of working on other things. I don't suppose it would be po...

Re: BSA tool in rust

Brilliant, that actually resolves an issue in one of my projects (https://gitlab.com/portmod/portmod/-/issues/108). I'll let you know if I find any bugs. It was mildly problematic that bsatool was, to my knowledge, the only cli tool that could handle bsa files, but isn't distributed with all the rel...

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

You're welcome! The main thing that requires little or even no programming experience would be adding mods to the repository. Creating pybuild files to add mods to the repository does require some programming knowledge, but for most mods it should be minimal as it's mainly just copying information i...

Improved File Format for omwaddon files

I don't know what the current plans for the future of the omwaddon file format are, but I had an idea for a new file format to make mod creation/interaction simpler. Now, I'm not as familiar with how esps/omwaddons work as I'd like to be, but current esp/omwaddon files cause a number of problems whe...

Re: Nightlies on Arch Linux AUR

It's already in the package name, in that every '-git' package in the AUR behaves like this (as well as '-svn', '-hg' etc.). It's also addressed on the AUR page of the wiki here and here . Could it be clearer? Probably, but the AUR isn't supported out of the box anyway, and you're expected to read t...
