Question on Morrowind File Structure

Recommended Posts

This is strictly about ESP/ESM files.

 

It is my understanding that the elements in the files appear in a linear manner as opposed to the nested structure of the later games. Is this correct?

Not sure what you mean, deaths_soul. The Enchanted Editor certainly presents the records and subrecords in a nicely nested way (not the best screenshot available but you get the drift I hope).

DS is referring to how the records are arranged or stored in the ESP or ESM. I think he's correct, they are linear. I will confirm with Jimi when he gets home.

 

DS, we already have routines for reading the files, if you want to take a look.

In the later games, you can have groups within groups and so forth. I think Morrowind is pretty much a straight line without all of the branching.

 

If true, I think I just need to enclose my existing reading code within an if-statement to add Morrowind reading support. :)

 

Andalay, you have it as private so I've stayed out of it. Sure you don't mind if I have a looksie?
