is it possible to recoded OpenMW so it can read the tes4 files (Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout 3/Fallout New Vegas data files)?
Since the first thing the engine would have to do would be read the .esm file, you would need to go back to square one. since this engine also lacks various elements like manual blocking and such, it wouldnt be any harder to just start from scratch. But to answer your question, i dont know if the current .esm reader could be modified to read the second gen esm files from the latter games or not. I would think if it could be done easily it would have given the amount involved.

cc9cii has been doing a lot of work here.
TES4 and TES5 reading is already being worked on cc9cii's OpenMW branch... I mean, there are videos of his work showing OpenMW and OpenMW-CS running around Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout3
