Step 0: get entities list
Wildlands_list.exe <forge file>
This will output entities list to console. To save it, use this command for example:
Wildlands_list.exe dataPC.forge > entities.txt
Step 1: correct forge.ini file to set which forge files to use and their location.
On the first run, Wildlands_list.exe tool will create a list of assets in all these files. If you change INI, or game will update, you need to delete generated file assets.dat so it will be regenerated.
Note: tool loads FORGE files in order they are listed in INI file, so you have to be sure to put PATCHES FIRST or tool may crash or give incorrect results.
One of DLC files is not compatible with current version, don't add it:DataPC_20_dlc.forge
Step 2: get table tree for some entity (or additionally, create part sets)
Wildlands.exe <entity id>
Wildlands.exe <entity id> <N>
Wildlands.exe <entity id> all
Example: Wildlands.exe 040123B873C > nina.txt
This will output all tables for Nina Flores. For explanation about these tables, see below. You should learn the table tree carefully before trying to export it.
"N" option will generate N random part sets.
"all" option will generate a set big enough to contain every possible part
Step 3: make a .TXT file with what you want to export
After you study the tables, you have to select what you want. You can make comments or change the file as you want. The tool will only use "objects" and "skeletons", all other lines will be ignored.
You can leave ONE option for each part, or many, but be careful. If you try combining the uncombinable, the result is unpredictable.
The order of skeletons is important. You have to list them in order of the table tree, they will be connected in this order. Like vest connected to main body, then some attach point connected to that vest. Wrong order MAY break them.
The order of "objects" is not important.
Example file for non-censored version of Nina:
Code: Select all
040123B89A3 Main skeleton 044F5D0A89F --> 1e Skeleton GR_UNP_Nina_Head ======= row 100% ======= 040123B8A70 ======== 044F5D0ABB5 --> 3 Object UNP_Nina_Body_02 044F5D0AC6C --> e Object UNP_NinaFlores_Shoes 0402FACC80C --> 19 Object UNP_NinaFlores_Eyelashes_LOD0 044F5D0AC04 --> 1 Object UNP_Nina_Head_Chest 04075D34428 --> 12 Object UNP_NinaFlores_Jewelry 044F5D0AC55 --> 2 Object UNP_NinaFlores_Clothes 044F5D0ABE7 --> 13 Object UNP_Nina_EyeTeeth 07C33CC2006 --> 20 Object UNP_Nina_Hair
Drag .TXT file onto the tool, or run the command above.
This will generate ASCII file with all parts combined. Additional skeletons will be in separate files:
small ASCII will have anim skeleton, SMD will have both animation & mesh skeletons, so applying this as animation you can transform the model to place eyes/teeth/other parts correctly (as shown on these videos https://youtu.be/IOsBCDMpjXc , https://youtu.be/hztnjbD07ok). Don't apply animation to HEAD model, because in most cases it will distort it. Apply only to body/eyes/teeh/weapons.
The fixing process is similar to frostbite face fixing - https://sta.sh/029zqoqijxmo (tutorial by Crofty)
You need all skeleton parts and combine them in right order. For example, this one needs 3: main skeleton, head skeleton, and boobs skeleton to work together.
And this combined skeleton is actually working with the model:
