Description

Back in TES:CS, there was a checkbox in the spell making panel that allowed the CS to automatically calculate the magicka cost of a spell. In openmw-cs, there is an "Auto Calc" dropdown, but it seems like it's used to determine if some NPCs have/sell/use the spell.

In short, I have two goals with this request:

  • Auto-calculating the cost of a spell is hugely useful, and not having it greatly reduces the usability of the openmw-cs spell editor. Can a checkbox or button be added that fulfills the same purpose as the one in TES:CS? (personally, a checkbox would be more useful if it automatically adjusted the cost after changes to the effects, whereas a button would require another click to update the cost).
  • Could the current Auto Calc be relabeled (like "NPC Availability"), in order to avoid confusion with the cost auto-calc ("Auto Calculate Cost")?

(On a side note, switching all of the boolean dropdowns to checkboxes would be a large improvement in usability.)
