  1. My plan is not to publish a copy of the IESDP. My plan is to use the information of the IESDP as a base to develop the wiki. Ideally that would lead to articles that build on the information of the IESDP to create articles with detailed descriptions. You can see examples of what I mean here and here. As you can see, those example mini articles build on the IESDP, but are definitely not a duplication of it.
  2. Actually, several people showed interest in a wiki. Anyway, that was ten years ago. I don't think it says much about the current situation. Regarding the duplication, the purpose of this wiki is not to duplicate the IESDP. It's to compile all the information available about IE modding, including the WeiDU language, the internals of the IE engine, IE modding tips and tutorials, etc.
  3. I'm resurrecting this thread because I have created a wiki about Infinity Engine modding. Its very ambitious purpose is to compile all the information available about IE modding, including the WeiDU language, the internals of the IE engine, IE modding tips and tutorials, etc. For now it's almost empty, but hopefully that will change soon. I'd like to request permission to import the information in the IESDP into this wiki.
  4. Actually, I have created an Infinity Engine modding wiki already. For now it's almost empty, but I hope it becomes a useful resource over time.
  5. Which seems quite confusing. I've requested this to be fixed here. Since NI is the de facto standard to browse these data, would it be a good idea to explain this in the IESDP?
  6. With my level of knowledge pulling a request for a change without previously having discussed it in the forum might be counterproductive. It's very likely that my requests would be pointless because I would be mistaken about what to change or even about the need to make a change at all.
  7. As I said, what is obvious to you is not necessarily obvious to others.
  8. There is plenty of information there that cannot possibly be obvious to anybody, like the way this parameter works for opcodes 177 and 146. Apart from that, what seems obvious for a veteran modder is not obvious for a more inexperienced one.
  9. There's very little information about this topic in that page. Most of the information I mentioned is missing.
  10. In my installation Remove effects by resource appears in NI as the penultimate effect in the list. The only effect that comes later is THAC0 bonus. So following this idea it looks like only THAC0 bonus should apply, the other effects should be removed. But I believe that's not what actually happens.
  11. Thank you, @K4thos. Should that info be added to the IESDP?
  12. I was looking for a general description of parameters of effects in the IESDP and couldn't find anything. The description of each effect mentions the main parameters the effect uses, but that's all I've seen about this. Some parameters seem to work in a complex way and a full description would be quite useful. An example would be the Dispel/Resistance parameter. I learned all of this about it in a recent discussion. Is this information in the IESDP? If not, should it be added?
  13. I'm in the process of creating my first mod, Corrected spell descriptions, and it looks like the IESDP can be very handy to find useful information. It looks like many of the original spell descriptions miss information about whether each spell is dispellable and whether it bypasses magic resistance, so I'm using NI and IESDP to find this information. With some spells a quick look at NI is enough, but sometimes it's trickier. Right now I'm checking Aura of Despair (SPCL103). Most of its effects are Dispel/Not bypass resistance, so that's easy. However, the effect "Remove effects by resource" is Natural/Nonmagical. The funny thing is that it looks like this effect would cancel the whole spell, because it removes Aura of Despair itself, but that doesn't seem to make sense. So what does this effect do? And does it affect the "dispellability" and the MR bypassing of the spell?
