Does true and false nullary expressions have any practical use case?

Temporarily disabling a part of a filter without having to erase that part. Also, true for a complete view of everything (an empty filter string works for that too, though).

I think that the next thing to describe are our files and directories. But i'm not quite sure if this thing should belong to the wiki or manual. Besides: i must admit that It is not quite clear to me what directories we are using on all systems. Do we have wiki page listing it or it is somwhere on the forums?

The user does not need to bother with things like installation directories. He obviously should know about the user directory. And then there is the list of default data directories that also might be worth mentioning.

I do not think we have a per-operating system list of these.

Ok, now about files: is there any difference between omwaddon.project and omwaddon? What actually project file contains?

There is no omwaddon.project file type. The file type is project. omwaddon is part of the project name (so you can have both x.omwgame and x.omwaddon, if you desire so).

The project file follows the general structure we use for content files and saved game files (the stuff we inherited from esx). For the time being the project file is nothing more than a container for filter records with project scope.

Referenceable potions have an "Auto-Calc" attribute set to false. That makes sense as these are preset and only self-made potions are automatically calculated when you make them. Why then is there a "true" option in Referenceables?

Skill books have an "Attribute" attribute but no "Skill" attribute. 36 Lessons of Vivec, Sermon 16 has Personality tied to it, but in Morrowind it raises your Axe skill. How does that work?

Interesting. When setting up the tables I did that based on our ESM record data structures. There is an auto calc field for potions, but it is not used anywhere in OpenMW (and it is probably not a flag either). Even for self-made potions we are not making use of it (no point since all effects are fixed at potion creation).

At this point I have actually no idea what this field is for. We need to figure that out and then adjust the record structs/OpenMW/OpenCS accordingly.

Bug.
