Re: Better grass support

To be fair here, with the increasing popularity of raytracing and path tracers as full or near-full replacements to traditional raster bases, this may not be so true in the future. Ray tracing really is an embarrassingly parallel rendering process, even given it's sequential aspects. Throwing more ...

Re: Distant Lands and OpenMW

It is worth nothing that while MGE's method has flaws, people in general absolutely love it because relative to the original game it is still a tremendous visual improvement. Basically, if people here aim for too much perfection in the system right off the bat, it'll never end up getting done, wher...

Re: The value of gold.

How would you change the value of gold? What would the value of a gold coin be if not one gold coin? Just think of it in terms of the Gold Standard. One gold coin is worth one gold coin, and any other item is worth some percentage or multiple of a gold coin. So if I buy something that's worth 10 gol...

That's the trouble. Aptitude wants me to remove 66 packages, including xserver ones. I'm worried my system will break if I do this. Is it safe to proceed with this?
Probably not. Have you configured apt for multiarch support, to get both 64-bit and 32-bit packages?

Re: WINE help

For nVidia on Debian, you'll want to install the 'nvidia-driver' and 'nvidia-driver-libs-i386:i386' packages (as well as 'nvidia-vulkan-icd:i386' if you want Vulkan support and have a card that supports it). For other distros, you'll need to search for how to install 32-bit OpenGL libs on a 64-bit s...

Re: WINE help

If you're running a 32-bit app, you also need the 32-bit GL drivers. The package for that depends on your hardware. It would also be a good idea to install (32-bit and 64-bit) Vulkan drivers, if your hardware is capable.

Re: Is it okay to update a mod during gameplay?

Depends on the mod and exactly what's changed. More complex mods can end up broken if preexisting state gets carried over while newly added state is left at the default. The breakage can be minor or severe, readily apparent or not realized until much later. It would be good to ask the mod creator if...

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

How similar are the Boost and STL filesystem APIs? Would it be possible to selectively alias one so it uses STL on supported systems and Boost as a fallback? e.g. namespace omw { #if __cplusplus >= 201703L using filesystem = std::filesystem; #else using filesystem = Boost::filesystem; #endif } // na...

Re: Need to rerun Wizard every time due to changing file location

Sounds like something is pretty messed up with Steam. On Linux, Steam should install files into ~/.steam/steam/SteamApps/common/Morrowind/Data Files, rather than the process's current working directory. Are you overriding Steam's config/data path? How did you install and how are you running Steam?

Re: Head bobbing

I'd definitely go with the latter option, a cfg setting that mods can't override. IMO, it should also only apply when the actor the camera is attached to is on the ground (i.e. not swimming, levitating, or no-clipping).
