Re: The new MWSE-Lua interface

Insist on sandboxing, sure, fine. According to the initial discussion in this thread, isn't sandboxing the reason NullCascade did not develop OpenMW-Lua alongside MWSE-Lua? I'm here to expand what modders can do, not tie their hands. I'm a Linux user who's becoming half inclined to run the original...

Re: The new MWSE-Lua interface

Seems quite a bit of this stuff is already part of OpenMW. Overall we do not strive for parity with MWSE, but if we happen to see some interesting ideas there, there is nothing that stops a developer with a bit of free time to implement them; at least as long as these idea fit into our overall desi...

We just do not have volunteers to implement it.
I volunteered to do the work and concurrently work on both OpenMW-Lua/MWSE-Lua at the same time to make a compatible API. You had the volunteers, but the OpenMW project wants a different direction.

Re: Recent Negativity Regarding OpenMW

Devs mostly on Linux, so it often impact on Windows-specific bug fixing. But this situation was improved for now. OpenMW survived full C++ rewrite in 2010, switching to OSG in 2015 and leaving of core developers (Nicolay Korslund, Scrawl). And it's alive, although it definitely needs more active de...

Re: Additem does not mimic vanilla behavior

I think this is related to the bug with the ordinator armor. OpenMW doesn't edit base records. The vanilla engine has instances and base objects for containers, NPCs, and creatures. These base objects have their own inventory. When one of these is cloned, it is copied from the base inventory. Simila...

Re: Recent Negativity Regarding OpenMW

Maybe better to expand an open source engine than closed source? Post-1.0 doc is not the final version. MWSE is wonderful project, but it may have own limitations, because Morrowind engine. Well, I hope that both sides will come to a compromise and we'll see a bright future of Morrowind modding. 8-...

Re: Recent Negativity Regarding OpenMW

I think it is more about fear. The redundancy of MWSE mods is directly proportional to the advancement of OpenMW. Drop in and actually hear the concerns and disappointments modders have about OpenMW. More OpenMW developers should communicate with mod developers. The redundancy of MWSE mods is direc...

Re: Poisons mechanics in OpenMW

I personally think there should be a more flexible way to define poisons, besides having just all-negative effects. The idea of poisons that includes minor positive effects (similar to potions that include minor negative effects) would be nice, for instance. Greatness7's Poison Crafting MWSE-lua mo...

Re: Recent Negativity Regarding OpenMW

I think a lot of the negativity comes from some different experiences and comments on Reddit/Nexus. The first thing any new mod gets asked on those platforms is "Is this Rebirth compatible?" followed by "Is this OpenMW compatible?" I think this creates some animosity towards them, even though they'r...

Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

Go for it. If you want to be creative, but you can't write, paint or play any instruments, programming is a great way to still create something beautiful. Start out with something dirt easy like Python. Write small scripts that automate tasks on your PC. Dip your toes into some web development. Wri...
