Now we're derailing this topic quickly :D
No this definitely falls under the umbrella of "Principles and Vision"! :lol:

I like Exterminators but I think the devs actually closing the bugs are the real exterminators here...

I cannot believe people have missed the obvious reference: parliament of bugs.

Sooo I hadn't heard of this before but google is telling me it's something from House Telvanni. Do you have a source I can do some reading on?

Little update: I am starting to write down stuff about the general de-hardcoding (cell/worldspace related de-hardcoding got its own section). At 21 pages now.

This thread has been an interesting read.

Here is my perspective on what's going on: OpenMW is open source. If someone wants to add a feature, they can add it with their own fork, and if they don't want to get anyones approval they can swap over to their own repo and release their own spins on the engine.

Now, I'm not going to say this isn't cool, but I sometimes worry about a future where someone who wants to play OpenMW has to choose between like 3 or 4 different popular repos of it.

I'm starting to think it isn't in OpenMW's best interest to start adding features, but instead it should be about opening up the engine for more modability. What I mean is, make it so more can be done without having to touch the source code. As soon as OpenMW starts hard coding features people will start clamoring for different hard coded features, and start looking for other binaries, that can fracture the community.

Now I will stop here, no one wants to hear a noob rant for too long.

People sometimes calls post 1.0 of OpenMW the time for "the great de-hardcoding". Guess why... ;) So don't worry.

Ah, I have heard that, I wasn't sure how official that goal was. Thanks for sharing.
