NFS Modding Toolkit #2


All projects have been cancelled but it is not a bad news because I decided to create a all-in-one tool called NFS Modding Toolkit. The tool will have a user friendly interface that allows to load various files (.obj, .z3d (v1 only), .bin (textures, geometry)). Right now supported games are:
  • Need For Speed Underground 2 (read only)
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted (read only)
  • Need For Speed Carbon (read only)
  • Need For Speed ProStreet (read only)
  • Need For Speed Undercover (read  / export)

I will keep you posted.

NFS: Undercover ModTools - update 2

I am still working on the tools for Need For Speed Undercover. I made huge progress. Geometry Compiler, Texture Compiler and Geometry Viewer have been replaced by single tool called NFS Modding Toolkit. More detailed information about this tool will be posted soon.

The current version of the first car that is fully supported by the game. This car was created by Robin'7t4.



2013/04/05

NFS Geometry Viewer has been completed. Currently there are two supported games: NFS ProStreet and NFS Undercover. In future other NFS games will be added. Viewer can open geometry files that contain cars, traffics and parts like spoilers. Integrated hash resolving module provides full names so part/texture/material name will not be trimmed. Additional functionality is ability to preview .obj and .z3d (zmodeler v1.0x) files.
