So here are my thoughts, and please give me your thoughts as well, as to the purpose of the Example Suite. We can later compile them together to get a more concrete list.Greendogo wrote:What is it?
The purpose of the OpenMW Example Suite Project is to create a fully functional demo using completely free or original content in order to demonstrate the features and improvements that the OpenMW engine brings over the vanilla Morrowind engine used by Bethesda.
1. Potential game developers can test out the engine without ever having to buy and play Morrowind.
2. Show engine features, including ones that Morrowind uses and ones that it does not.
3. Make game development easier for potential game developers and modders by giving ingame examples of how to write code, how to use features, how things work in general.
4. Provide CC-BY-SA assets that can be easily used to prototype game ideas.
Is it worth it to make a demo for these things? Should we have different goals? Or is this all pointless and we should just scrap the project? What do OpenMW devs think about the purpose of this demo?
