[PATCH] Show stolen items in inventory

Post by CyberShadow » 04 Mar 2019, 21:50

Makes stolen items in inventory/containers show up like owned items (before they are stolen), if highlighting owned items is enabled.

It didn't make sense to me that the player character doesn't know which items they pilfered, yet the guards did.
But, I don't think the original game had this either, so I don't know about submitting this for inclusion.

There might be a performance issue (due to an O(n) lookup) in saves where many items have been stolen.

Likewise, this is a pretty cool idea as well.

It does not make much sense since there is no "Stolen" flag for item references.
I did a patch a long time ago which adds a "stolen" flag to the CellRef, but it is unclear how to handle merchant confiscation:

May be a good idea for Lua mod instead of patch.

I think it makes sense insofar as previewing which items the guards would confiscate. But, I agree that, as is, such a feature would probably cause a lot of bug reports due to users being confused by the unintuitive way the game keeps track of what is considered "stolen".

That's great! But I didn't want to change any game mechanics, just provide some info to the player.

Awesome, thanks for thinking about this and realising it! Does it need a specific version of the game to work?

Is there any reason why this shouldn't be merged?

Not being able to know which items you stole is a bug in the vanilla engine in my opinion, because it doesn't make sense that guards knows while you don't have any clue about it. I hoped that OpenMW could one day fix it, but since not everybody seems to share the same enthusiasm I would like to know why they don't think this should be implemented.

The whole Morrowind's owners system is a huge mess and this patch does not solve any issues with this system.
A more proper solution would be to track stolen items on a per-instance basis, but it requires a savegame format change and I doubt that it can be implemented as a togglable option, so more likely we will have either use or not to use it.
Since almost every time when we try to fix a some kind of vanilla bug some people complain and demand to leave this bug, I see no reason to change the current system right now.

At least the half of Morrowind's game mechanics can be considered as bugs, but generally we do not change them since the main goal is to recreate the Morrowind with its game mechanics. We can not have an option just for every case to please everyone.

It is not the intention of the patch posted here to change any game mechanics.

If you believe that the only way to address this topic is a change in game mechanics, respectfully, that is your opinion. I only wanted to improve the UI while preserving the original mechanics.
