Re: Guy on youtube starts a let's play with OpenMW...

Anyways, back to the topic... I used to watch his videos. Pomopus is an adequate description. His knowledge of the lore is admireable, his dismissal of lore evolution and a strong "purist" stance - not so much. Also, his videos on why certain games suck and what would be the perfect TES VI...ugh. :r...

Re: OpenMW 0.39.0

Those are custom/mod trees. Taking a peek inside the nifs should show what`s different from vanilla trees (ie shader settings or custom maps).

I`d definitely recommend you give curves adjustment layer (in PS) a try, as it handles both values and colors. ;)

Re: Vivec retexture to show off/test shaders

IIRC, texture artist usually take the diffuse map and fiddle with contrast/curves/levels to get a spec map out of it. Also noticed they tint it blueish, probably for a good reason. Thought I`d mention, just in case you haven`t tried that. ;) As for PBR - yeah, it is a great step forward in modernisi...

Re: Smoother cell transitions

NiStencilProperty is very important tho (and highly underused, TBH) as it tells the engine to render meshes on both sides, w/o backface culling, allowing us to cut mesh polygon count in half. I use it always for my hairs mod. If it could be implemented ASAP, that would be great. And I am interested ...

All I`m saying is - we can do things quickly. Or good. I`m just saying this from my professional POV (I`ve been doing textures for games for years now).

Anyways, all of this is still a long time comming, so there`s no reason to bother with it just now.

Re: Updating original assets to Ogre3D

Fourth, there are many many very good texture replacers out there. No, not all of them much the original style but many are quite good. This may be a long shot idea, but if someone could find and persuade connary to release his texture compendium to us, that would basically finish most of the textu...

Re: Updating original assets to Ogre3D

I have no experience with FUSE, just MakeHuman, but if FUSE is better, I'm okay with that. Making all the stuff from scratch ourselves is a nice idea, but I don't think we have enough dedicated and skilled manpower and free time for that. That's why I think we should get help from any middleware we...

Re: Updating original assets to Ogre3D

I would personally prefer if we could build or make as much as we can ourselves, w/o relying on other features and programs (except those that are really needed, ofc). Just to keep everything as "original" as possible, not worrying about copyright and crediting and such. If it can be avoided, let`s ...
