Re: OpenMW 0.47.0

Don't have any dae files on hand, so no idea if it'll work or not, but the plugin at least seems to load without throwing any error. I get an error when trying to load the Template with RC3 on windows. It says there's no loader for dae files. I believe Atahualpa had a similar problem when he was te...

Re: Ceramic bowl is tiny in game

You're not providing enough information to figure out where the scaling of the ceramic bowl is happening. Especially with a large number of mods, the cause could be anywhere. The best approach would be to test one mod at a time and see where it happens. In addition, checking the .nif model of the ce...

Re: Replacing Animated Models?

Here's a video back from February showing a player character, animations and interchangeable body parts. Models and animations are using .dae format.

Re: Replacing Animated Models?

I think in order to get OpenMW to work with a more modern pipeline, it's imperative to make it easy to make art for it. Having to make guess about stuff that was hard-coded into the game 20 years ago is as hard for the artist as it is for the OpenMW devs! I hope it doesn't seem like I am complainin...

Re: Replacing Animated Models?

Oh, also! The instructions don't mention that you need to get the `patch11_2020` branch of the Better Collada addon. Good find, will document it properly. Or even better, see whether the COLLADA exporter can be in a repository under OpenMW and just link that. It's something we mentioned some time a...

Re: Making a race with only one playable sex?

There's no such option as far as I'm aware, a lot of the stuff is still tied to how Morrowind handles its entities. Having more freedom with this and other fundamental mechanics would be nice to have though. An important step for dehardcoding the base mechanics will be Lua scripting in 0.48.

Re: Replacing Animated Models?

OpenMW has hardcoded animations that it calls by name (the CharacterController class has several cases where it searches for specific, hard-coded strings). .Nif files contain text notes that describe when these animations begin and end. Collada files must use a .txt file to achieve this purpose. So...

Re: Roman Outpost Game Idea

I'm wondering, does anyone have any FOSS tools for taking photos and creating 3d meshes out of them? I'm familiar with Meshroom which has a decent enough workflow. https://github.com/alicevision/meshroom. As josephbburg mentions, quality source material (photos) is essential. The resulting mesh als...
