Resource tool

Postby DPblH » Wed Jun 14, 2017 5:14 am

Greetings, hearthlings!

I want to release simple resource tool for Haven. Just run, select local or remote resource (for remote resource it should be like 'gfx/terobjs/cupboard') and edit everything you want (and can be edited).

You can easily change text, toolips, images, textures (for example), etc. You can also remove some layers from resources: annoying sounds (audio2), mesh animations like bees on beehives (manim), totally remove bees from beehives (mesh), remove texture rotation animation from fireplaces (texrot sublayer of mat2), remove skeleton animation of animals or dreamcatchers (skan). Save resource and place into your client, usually it is like '%CLIENT_FOLDER%/res/gfx/terobjs/cupboard.res'.
Note: for code layer you need java to be in you PATH.

You can also edit 3D models, but it is a bit tricky and have several restrictions. First of all, I cannot understand this BEST CODE I HAD SEEN EVER, and I'm also not good in 3D.

Here are restrictions:
  • resource must have exactly 1 mesh layer, even with the mesh layers with same id, I don't know how to load them back properly. Maybe some day loftar will explain how this magic works;
  • vbuf2 layer must have exactly 3 sublayers: nrm, pos, tex. I don't know how to properly export other sublayers into OBJ format, or they not supported by OBJ.

Editing 3D model:
  • open resource and go to vbuf2 layer
  • press 'Export to obj' button, model will be saved into 'obj' folder of this tool
  • if resource contains tex layer, go to tex layer and save resource texture
  • open Blender and import model from obj wavefront format
  • apply texture on model if any
  • change something
  • export into OGRE format (you must have export plugin for this)
  • save texture separately if any
  • open resource tool, press 'Import from XML' button and select OGRE XML changed model
  • go to tex layer and change texture if any
  • dont forget to save resource
Time to fix chicken helm!

At the very least you could just drag and drop files to hafen-res.jar or something, that might prevent the client from fetching the stuff from the server.

This is because such objects (houses, boats, etc) are using dynamic textures and don't contains any info about textures themselves. You can go to trees objects and find material with texture which apllied to objects ingame dynamically, extract and use it in another software.

As I understand it, simple editing of resources is only suitable for objects with fixed textures. For example "tarkiln" you can easily modify the meshes from which it is created. But when I try to change objects that use textures of different resources, the client does not use them, downloading the default ones. I tried to change "trallis" just by removing mesh, and also simplifying their geometry in a blender (for performance), but the client does not want to use them.
Maybe you will show an example of modifying such resources (with not fixed textures), it would be great.
