How to make Intelligence appealing to non-mages?

In my recently released mod, Natural Character Growth and Decay , I gave a small incentive for non-mages to stack up some Willpower in the form of a small Health boost (also the fatigue boost that was already present). I've been trying to think of a way to make Intelligence more appealing, though. O...

Re: Natural Character Growth and Decay - An OpenMW Leveling

Alright, it's done, version 1.1 is live. I'm still not totally happy with the skill-attribute relations, but I have to work with the skills and attributes the game gives me. It might be interesting to look into "re-purposing" a skill via scripts, adding some entirely new mechanic to the game while s...

Re: Natural Character Growth and Decay - An OpenMW Leveling

I don't know why I didn't do this before, but last night before bed I looked up the Oblivion skill list, and some of the connections between attributes and skills make more sense than the ones I used. For example, I wouldn't have thought to make Acrobatics have Speed as a primary attribute (I believ...

Natural Character Growth and Decay - An OpenMW Leveling Mod

Whew, finally finished it. It only took me a week. Here's the Natural Grow leveling mod we've always wanted. (Maybe.) I know a lot of people loved Galsiah's Character Development, and so did I. Since GCD didn't work quite the way it was supposed to, I set about to create my own similar mod. And here...

Is there a way to add an ability more than once?

So I'm making great progress with my leveling mod, I have it all scripted so that attributes are influenced by skills and can go over 100. Now I'm working on making skills go over 100. At the moment, the best I've been able to come up with is to check when a skill's base value is greater than or equ...

Re: Bringing back drain-intelligence glitch

Try this instead: Buy Frost Salts from Nalcarya (in the Balmora alchemy shop, just West of the Temple), and Comberries from Ajira (Balmora Mages' Guild). These two vendors restock these ingredients, so they will never run out. Mix them together to make a Restore Magicka potion. Frost Salts are a bit...

Get/Mod/SetStat, Fortify/Drain Stat, and Leveling Mods

TL;DR at the end. I just did a round of testing, and the deeper I went the more interesting things got. This may also speak to why GCD doesn't seem to allow your attributes to grow beyond 95, as Galsiah may have been exploiting bugs that have been fixed in OpenMW. I started my investigation with For...

Re: OpenMW 0.42.0

I didn't say it was a good idea. Of course, I didn't think it would be quite that bad.

In that case, my vote is on waiting for the videos. I'll be looking forward to them.

Re: Data File paths and Capitalization

Yeah, it's actually turned out to be quite a bit easier than I expected. Lots of copy and paste, though. Removing a mod is as simple as commenting out that line in the openmw.cfg file, and reinstalling a mod you didn't set up properly also much easier (I currently have bright purple kwama foragers a...
