Hello Contributors,

Hello Contributors,

i'm a german native speaker and i'd really like to translate the things you created in german language, if that is in any way possible. I really like your work and your ideas, and i wanna be conducive to the project. But my problem is, that i can't design/program/shape anything. It would be really nice, if i could accomplish this work for you.

Sincerely, Adrian

I'm not sure translating English to German will be needed, because Oblivion already has German voices, subtitles and menus.

But send a PM to Zilav and ask if he needs your translating services.

Thanks! Would really want to "close" this part of development, especially now when NPCs will have original armors (and maybe clothes) for a finished look.

You'll have to wait for them

You'll have to wait for them to release it, there is no release date. I do know that they'll probably need a lot of help with navmesh.

The problem with navmeshing

The problem with navmeshing is they are hard to merge together, and can be done reliably only using version control in CK (which also has it's own set of quirks). Interior navmeshes should probably wait for exterior one first because they link to particular triangles in exterior worldspace navmesh and vice versa.

And exterior worldspaces are total $%^*@# to make. The problem is finalization process in CK that could renumber navmesh triangles and break links to other navmeshes, especially when several people are navmeshing the same worldspace and the same time. This means that if someone wants to sign doing navmeshes, they must

1) Do worldspace exterior navmesh first

2) Do it alone, navmesh the whole worldspace by himself!!!

3) Merge it into master file

4) Only then others can start making interiors and link exterior/interior navmeshes together on doors

Doing it in reverse order (interiors first, then exterior worldspace) will require later to update interior navmeshes again and set proper links to exterior navmesh. Considering there are 1800 interiors in Skyblivion, that's a huge extra work prone to a lot of errors. That's why the optimal way is how I described it.

If there are brave people around, I can recommend to start with a simple case - navmesh smaller worldspace first and it's interiors in a separate plugin per worldspace, since navmeshes between worldspaces usually don't have links. The obvious candidates are: Oblivion realms, Pale Pass, Camoran's paradise, Painted world, etc. (not cities since they link to parent worldspace).

I planed this process after 0.3 public release, but if someone wants to try that now...

We could have one person do each towns navmesh? Would make things faster.

And by "could renumber navmesh triangles and break links to other navmeshes" does it always do this?

I have an idea to try, say if two people are navmeshing an area and the two areas are about to meet. What if they both place a gap between them to that they aren't technically joined? Then you could join them later. Would the CK still mess it up?

I don't know really, just

I don't know really, just read a lot of unpleasant posts on forums regarding navmeshing and CK renumbering triangles everywhere even after slight changes. I've never navmeshed myself.

The other problem is navmesh size, they occupy quite a lot of space in plugins. Skyblivion is 250MB now, I'm afraid that if that size will increase by a lot (like another 100MB), CK won't be able to load and process it anymore. But that is only my speculation, maybe it can handle even 500MB plugins just fine.

But to be safe, navmeshes should be optimized and have as less triangles and separate isles as possible to reduce the overall size, just in case.

I feel like a trello can

I feel like a trello can still be beneficial , will just have to change the format. It sounds like the best way to do things is what yazza said to have one person do the navmeshes for a town.

I'll start with Bruma, and see if I can figure things out.

Edit: Started out, exteriors are pretty annoying to do.

Yes, exteriors are the

Yes, exteriors are the biggest problem. Two huge worldspaces (Tamriel and SI) plus dozens of smaller ones (cities, oblivions, etc.). And then additional navmeshing job on top of that setting preferred pathing, water triangles, ledges, covers, everything that is managed by navmesh system in Skyrim's engine.

If you are serious about doing some navmeshing now, then try to keep more free not navmeshed space around trees. Some of the new tree replacement meshes are bigger than vanilla ones.

When you finish that navmesh (Bruma), could you release it? Wouldn't mind trying it out.

I think you need to leave

I think you need to leave some empty border around obstacles and walls to avoid NPCs getting stuck. I've read about if on official forum, and this also had been discussed in Skywind navmeshing thread some time ago.

We need lots of navmeshing done, so if you can do that it would be very helpful. Might have to wait for the next release though.

Progress Update: about 75% done with Bruma interiors, should be done by end of next week.

I'm loving the culture contrast in those armors @yazza2014, keep going, it looks beautiful, try and make cyrodil's inhabitants as interesting as possible, as imho, i found the game's armor and setting a tiny bit bland.

Sorry for going MIA for all

Sorry for going MIA for all this time, I've been kept busy with real life stuff.  Plus there's also the matter of Eskom with their load shedding (I can't even see when our power will go off).

While I'd like to get back to helping, I'm not sure if or when that'll be realistically possible.  I also don't want to commit myself to helping just to have the same thing happen as last time.

If there's something that you people think I can do though, feel free to discuss it with me.  Maybe you can think of something that I can do.

It depends on what you want and can actually do.

CK work? Navmehsing, lighting overhaul of interiors probably to add more shadowcasters and fix flickering lights.

Modeling? Armours are converted, and party clothing. Need to finish it and convert jewelry.

I don't have any experience with Navmeshing, and since it needs to be heavily optimized I'd rather not do that.

What needs to be done on the interiors?  I might be able to help with that.
