Hello everyone! My name is Jacob, I loved playing Morrowind on the original Xbox & PC and using the creation kit for all ES games. I have been a Software Engineer for about 7 years now, doing a mix of both web (.NET core, html/css/js frameworks ect!) and desktop development (.NET WPF, winforms). I originally started with C++ but fell off of it in favor of C#/Java/Frontend webstack. I have been looking into Qt development for a bit now, and getting back into C++.

My friend recently told me about this project and I was blown away, amazing progress! I would love to pitch in where I can, even if its just bug fixing! I will want to start with any outstanding beginner issues to get my bearings.

I have been looking at https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/-/issues/5800 as it seemed like a straightforward repeatable issue, with a helpful comments already!

After a few bug fixes I was thinking about leaning into the CS side of things.

If the project is full up already, no problem!

Hope everyone is doing well, and thank you for any help!
-Jacob

Welcome aboard!

Just have a look at the wiki to have a feel for a developer setup and what you need to get setup.

Have a deep dive in the code and poke around. Feel free to ask questions here or join us on discord.

If you would like discuss the code you're working on, throw it up as a merge request on Gitlab, label it draft and we can go over it.

Have fun!

Ahoy!

Any improvements to OpenMW are welcome and improving the CS even more so. Not many people are currently working on it so any contribution is that much more valuable. The editor is still missing some basic functionality and could use various usability improvements. You can check https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/-/issu ... %5D=Editor for an assortment of tasks to pick from.
