Structure[edit]

The OpenMW project is made up of three distinct subsystems:

We have a strict Policy about dependencies between these subsystems.

World Model [edit]

Rendering[edit]

GUI[edit]

Additional Libraries[edit]

File Formats[edit]

ESM/ESP[edit]

Up to version 1.0 we will use the original esm/esp formats nearly unchanged. Currently OpenMW ignores any pre-compiled scripts and does JIT-compiling instead. The new CS will not generate pre-compiled scripts either.

A documentation of the original format can be found here:

Please note, that this documentation is not fully complete and in some cases not fully correct either.
