OpenCS looks great to be honest. Will be much less time consuming to complete a lot of tasks. However I do have one suggestion. Without changing any variable in say "wrath of odos", it will still be listed as "modified" (in vanilla you have to press save). I can see this being potentially problematic as this would cause a LOT of conflicts. What if it things only were listed as "modified" if you actually changed something? Keep up the good work!

I put your post on our forums because I was not 100 % sure this was already discussed:https://forum.openmw.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1938&p=20462#p20462

There should be an answer very soon.

Well I can't register cause I have no other e-mail adress but hotmail lol. However with that said I wish to reply to "Zini" somehow.

I'm aware that there's no "save button" in OpenCS and I don't think "explicitly modify" as true in this case. Lets say I do the following:

1. I select the spell window.
2. I double click the "cost" field for "wrath of odos", but without changing the variable, then I move on to check another spell.
3. It's now listed as modified even though I didn't actually change something.

This is why I see it as troublesome. Sometimes you just click the wrong field, then it will forever be listed as modified. Sure it's great with a tool that will make it easy to remove records that you don't want to be edited, however it can get nasty if you're dealing with hundreds of spells.

What do you mean by "other patches" ?
OpenMW is a completely new game engine, not a mod. MGE and such will not work. But since OpenMW is a free software, one could integrate such effects directly into the engine.
