You're right, we devs usually keep away from content mixing in with OpenMW as a project. We however do know that Zini has his own pet Ultima project and I've been working on something else, so the line is blended. I do not believe that OpenMW itself will ever deal with mods directly.Tinker wrote:Generally devs here have stayed away from content as much as possible, the OpenMW team provide the engine and tools modders provide the content.
If their intention is to continue this way, which seems to work, then mods would come under a separate organisation.
I can foresee some problems, like modders who want to keep their stuff on their own sites and modders who have moved on and abandoned their mods but the idea of a central repository for OpenMW mods does sound appealing.
We can though offer suggestions for people who want to start something up themselves. I'm the owner of the OpenMW github organization, so I can say with some authority that it is trivial to start up an organization and create teams to handle different repos/mods.
That being said, the real problem comes with people curating the mods... that takes time and patience.
I'm still hopeful that places like nexusmods will add OpenMW to their list.
