Wanted: Pictures!

We could have a few perspectives:

Our classes - purely ours, originating from their earliest (latest?) library object they are derived from.

The GUI pic - from our classes to the MYGUI member they are derived from.

Rendering -
from our actors to OGRE,
from our cells to OGRE.,
from our mwclasses to OGRE

Stuff like that. Any ideas for more pictures?

Doxygen can automatically create various class diagrams (if set up correctly). The inheritance diagrams won't be very fancy, because we have very flat hierarchies in OpenMW. The collaboration diagrams might be more interesting.

Huh. I forgot it was even there and what it was about. I'd like to see that in action. Things change so much that the documentation generator probably doesn't get to be used much, right?

Example:
<!-- ia0 -->classMWWorld_1_1Action__inherit__graph.png<!-- ia0 -->
Star-Demon wrote: Yeah, pretty much like that. Showing is better than telling, and pictures are just the thing. :)

That Nullaction class sticks out from the others, shouldn't it be ActionNull? :P

Hmmm...what other pics would be helpful?

Anything describing the traveling from data through Functions/Methods to being realized to the user. Not sure how important that one would be, though.

The collaboration diagram is usually pretty interesting ;)
<!-- ia0 -->classOMW_1_1Engine__coll__graph.png<!-- ia0 -->

@pic: oooo.
best regards,
