Increddible asset of modding tools

Recommended Posts

While I was seeking for some info about the Road.Bin editor, I came accros the modding tools page on www.mafiapub.com

 

and oh man, stuff is awesome!

I'll go trough a few.

 

All following are released and to be found here:

http://www.mafiapub.com/programs.php

 

Facial animations editor, or "MED" as it's called.

This tool has been announced on MP's front page, it will give the modder ability to modify facial animations using keyframes.

 

Check.Bin Editor or "CHE"

An ingame Check.Bin editor.

I can't read any of the texts, but as far as I can tell the modder has the ability to modify paths ingame for cars, pedestrians, and also enemy waypoints.

 

A smaller though complicated tool can be downloaded here on Mafiascene.

Lightmap Editor

A tool created by Mr F which allows the modder trough a process of some steps to create lightmaps.

A detailed english discription can be found here:

http://www.mafiapub.com/forum/lofiversi ... t2608.html

 

5ds converter

No screenshot, but this tool can convert 3ds max animations into mafia .5DS files.

This is something that can become increddibly usefull for the Titanic mod... in fact, all of these tools.

 

Effects.Bin editor

No screenshot, An editor that allows to edit ingame effects. Such as smoke for example.

 

Road.Bin editor

A tool developed to set paths for Cars & Pedestrians.

 

Only thing... It's all written and programmed in Russian language, Can anyone translate these tools?

Me and probably many other modders will highly appreciate it!

 

I think it's a shame only Russian speaking people can understand these tools.. I mean, they are so advanced and got such great potential! The whole mafia modding community should be able to create amazing mods from this. Currently they are only used by I guess only a few individuals from only one website which is MafiaPub itself. Other than there, there's no trace of any of these tools to be found. No one knows nor speaks about it. Big shame!

 

One other tool that I'm increddibly looking foreward to, but is still being made, is the more advanced Road.Bin Editor:

Like a dream come true (note the lightmaps in the testing course BTW.)

Thanks to Samo for informing me about the road.bin editors, according to him, he heard that one is making a tutorial for this tool.

 

 

If anyone got any other interesting and rare tool, please share!

 

And if someone speaks Russian, I beg you for help! ;)

For example I don't have azbuka charset so I see various strange characters instead of azbuka characters. Can you please donwload 4Ds manager and make screenshot of it with translated texts?

Very well!

 

Could you please translate the tools I mentioned above?

All except the CHE editor, as one is working on that already.

I downloaded your translated version and I decided to play with the faces ;) But I don't really know which file should I open to change the faces. One more thing - can I modify every face or Tommy's only ?

Did someone try MED? I tried and I am able to create face animation, but I'm not able to set anything :( I set face, click apply, save it and it don't have any effect, animation is still the same.
