Re: MWSE, Lua and OpenMW compatibility

What is this nonsense about competition? The theoretical guy who had a mod idea and was forced to fork to implement it is not trying to actively compete with the entirety of openMW... I get it though, people here have bigger plans than just Morrowind and so sandboxing is important. I'm not a fan, bu...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

Not an OpenMW contributer, but I'd also vote for Lua. Morrowind-script itself can barely be considered a language at all, it is literally just the most basic of basics (if/else/while) - to try and expand it into something modern would be essentially writing your own scripting language from scratch. ...

Re: Post 1.0 Planning Update

Is there anyone out there who actually likes MWScript? Does it have *any* redeemable features? The last time it was tried to extend MWScript we ended up with Papyrus... nobody liked the result of that either. Moving to a "real" scripting language ala LUA seems like a no-brainer. Existing modders wou...
