In 12 years of Morrowind modding the community made only 1 body replacer. Creating anything else or editing existing model is considered not worth it due to amount of time it would take to create fitting clothing. No way to customize anything. BodySlide and perhaps OutfitStudio functionality added into OpenCS would drastically improve modding efficiency. Maybe even it could be a first step to something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kvoausvOL8A small program for Skyrim mods that allows custom meshes to be customizable by users.
Uses the .nif file format for input and output.
Designer input involves creating a .nif file containing a base shape and a number of additional shapes. The program calculates the difference between each shape and the base, and outputs a series of vector offet data files.
An xml format definition allows the creator to define a set of sliders that operate on the delta files. A user of the program is presented with a seres of sliders thaallows the final shape to be customized. a single button click then creates the customized mesh and installs it to a directory defined by the app.
for configuration xml processng, utilizs the TinyXML library.
This tool is a google code project, required to be open source, under an MIT license. Not sure if v2 is the same branch, but here is the source from google code page: http://code.google.com/p/bodyslide/source/checkout
Any chance for similar functionality added into OpenMW at some point?
