Re: Openmwcs-merge

It seems we are using different terminology and different abbreviations, which would explain why half of your post didn't make any sense to me on the first read. First, what about "Asset": Is that your name for a record? Race, Activator, Cell and so on? As our assets are kept in the Tamriel_Data.esm...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Can we keep the discussion in this thread, please? Splitting it across two forums would be kinda bothersome. I am not entirely clear about the workflow you described. Will have to read through it again, once I am not so much in a hurry anymore. Probably will have to ask for a couple of clarification...

Re: Terrain Editing

There is a user settings option for that: Edit -> Preferences -> 3D Scene Editing -> Handle land edit outside of visible cells. Available options are "Show cell and edit" and "Discard".

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Surely the conflicts still exist between C2 and B' and can, therefore, be detected? No, they can't. Conflict means both C1 and C2 modify the same record. With B' the original state of records in B (that got overwritten by C1) are lost. Therefore the conflict doesn't exist anymore and C2 would simpl...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Can't do that, because after the merge B isn't B anymore. It is a new content file (B'). To do it in order, you would have to port C2 to B' first. There are no benefits to this approach, especially since you lose the ability to aromatically detect conflicts.

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Oh great, now that I am thinking about it I feel an almost irresistible urge to get on with coding that thing. As if I weren't busy enough :(

Re: Openmwcs-merge

A plugin isn't really an option. We would require an extensive API, way more than I expect to have ready in the early post-1.0 phase. Considering that a better merge tool is essential for projects like TR, I really want this to be ready for 1.0 or at least not far after 1.0. Besides if we do integra...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

I pretty much abandoned this approach. I think the whole problem needs a complete rethink. I was trying to force the merge function on the existing OpenMW-CS data structure. It would have worked, but it was also becoming increasingly clear that this is a suboptimal way of doing it. Anyway, the code ...

Re: My thoughts on the design document (post 1.0)

That's the ref variable type. Mentioned in the description off oldscript+. Will make it into the specs of newscript, one way or another.
