Dual Wielding plus logic

This idea is directly related to the shield bashing one. I am good at logic(and had to do some programming for school, but dont have tons of experience), so I will simply layout how code could possibly work in this instance. At its simplest, you would basically have each hand available for an action...

Re: Shield Like Oblivion?

In regards to the weapon hitting like in Oblivion, there is at least one mod already(probably more than one) that makes it so you cant miss.
In regards to shield bashing, I will make a thread.

Re: Mapping: Bump, Glow, Normal, etc

People call em "fake" bump maps but they actually use normal maps. Multiple textures are specified in the .nif itself, the regular one(base) plus mapping. I believe I may have seen more than one way to do this, but one way uses a NiTextureEffect for "glare" or the kind of shinyness that will come fr...

Re: Random Quest (post 1.0 scripting improvement)

And in incredably complicated.

I would be all for this, but making it from scratch would be a project in itself.

Mapping: Bump, Glow, Normal, etc

This is likely a post 1.0 feature and this post is more of a question I guess. How is this being handled? With Oblivion, as far as I can tell, the texture maps are not actually part of the model and are only applied during rendering. The name of a map texture is a copy of whatever texture the map is...

Re: Do you need help with English localization?

Re: Fan Art/ Mod Showcase Loading Screens

The point is that the authors did not feel flattered. It is a long and boring discussion about freedom (in both senses) that I would like to avoid. If we have to ask, then I think it is better using vanilla. If the project will have half of the success it deserves artists will ask openmw to use the...

Re: Fan Art/ Mod Showcase Loading Screens

You mean tha project where the guy didnt bother asking for permission from anyone?

As long as people are notified and agree to have their art used, its completely fine.

Re: Construction Set ideas

So a ray cast from the object the "drop here" command was run on, going downwards a short bit until it hits another object and then moves there. I myself would want to see a good 3D snap-to-grid function, maybe even (way past 1.0) something that would make fitting pieces of corridors and such snap ...

Re: Lightgem (definitely post 1.0)

Well, for this, all you have to do is figure out how much light is hitting the player versus the surroundings. Perhaps you could compare pixel shading of the PC compared to the surroundings. The darker something is in relation to dark surroundings, the more lkely it blends in. I mean if you have the...
