Re: Config/Launcher discussion (or: One guy wants some thing

The plugin=archive solution inherits all of the problems of Skyrim's Steam Workshop, which a huge proportion of Skyrim modders completely ignore as it causes a lot of problems. Not only is it harder to control different optional components if an individual mod, it's also harder to create compatibili...

Re: Config/Launcher discussion (or: One guy wants some thing

It's also a pain if you want to mod a mod - I've got several Skyrim mods which I've not liked the implementation of, but have liked the idea, so have assembled bits and pieces of other mods and my own work to make the mod I wanted to use. if everything used archives instead of loose files, it would ...

Re: Release process changes

It might not be of any use to this discussion, but another open-source project whose primary user group is gamers and handles things pretty well is Dolphin Emulator. While their releases are few and far between, and users are recommended to use development builds, there's never really an issue of br...

Re: Release process changes

I think part of the problem here is that people are expecting the RCs to do different things. AFAICT: raevol thinks the RC builds only exist so we don't do something silly, like have a release build with a missing DLL or a broken installer. As long as nothing's gone horribly wrong, for example, with...

Re: Config/Launcher discussion (or: One guy wants some thing

Much like that of Mod Organizer or Nexus Mod Manager: Capture.PNG Untitled.png Note how both have lists of things with a defined priority, but some are checked and some are unchecked. Also, the esp list has two priority columns, one with numbers which MO uses, and one with hexadecimal values which t...

Re: Config/Launcher discussion (or: One guy wants some thing

The biggest problem with using backslash as an escape character is that it's the default path separator on Windows. It would remove the ability for Windows users to copy and paste data directory paths straight out of explorer and into the config file. This will remain an issue until we have a nice G...

Re: Lysol's normal mapped texture packs

I'm not 100% sure the wood grain is all in the correct direction in the door texture here. It looks to me more like it's supposed to be built up from bars and panels, more like in this quick mockup I made in SketchUp:

Config/Launcher discussion (or: One guy wants some things)

There are a few things that I think need discussing about the launcher and config files before 1.0 happens and we have to worry about 'breaking changes'. Some are some worries I have, while others are probably legitimate bugs, and some more things are feature requests. Some or all of this might alre...

Re: Content Number Issues

I only learned when it was mentioned in passing when I was learning Spanish - that language has separate verb forms depending on which version of 'you' you're using.

Re: Content Number Issues

I'm going to have to nitpick here. You called him 'thou' and then immediately said you understand 'your' worries and hear 'your' cry, but 'your' is derived from 'you', which (in Shakespeare's era, which I think is what you're going for) is the formal version of 'thou', and you can't mix and match 'y...
