Why is OpenMW not listed in uesp.net mods page?

Post by djgs11 » 22 Apr 2021, 02:16

The uesp.net is probably the best Morrowind wiki around today.

It has plenty of other open source engines such as OpenTESArena and DaggerXL Listed.

I am curious as to the reason OpenMW is not on there. Did no1 bother to list it? Or is there a Reason I dont know about?

By all means I didnt realy research so its possible it is allready known.

Interesting. One could argue that OpenMW is not a mod but an engine recreation -- but, as you mentioned, the mod main page also lists similar projects for Arena and Daggerfall. It looks like nobody has bothered to add OpenMW.

Curiously, there already exists an OpenMW page which is linked to the Morrowind mod main page -- but OpenMW isn't mentioned there either.

Having dealt with the UESP folks to get the Daggerfall Unity pages set up there, they will not accept that OpenMW is an engine recreation (even though it is) - they would likely add space for it under Mods, as they did with DFU. But I agree it should be there - not sure why that existing OpenMW page Atahualpa found isn't linked there, or apparently in any other logical location on the site.

EDIT: I just fixed it. The OpenMW page is now correctly linked on https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Mod:Main_Page, under the Morrowind Mods category.

Any reasoning as to why they refuse to accept that?

Not that I understood. They seemed pretty adamant about it - pretty strange.
