Hope this problems can be solved, it's amazing that you already got until this point of progress.
Good luck


BTW. any idea how to open textures?
Speaking of textures, I'll repeat this in case it helps:

The game seems to read or treat the .swatchbin files like .png files. For example a fake filepath like "UI\textures\thumbnail.swatchbin" is referred to as "UI\textures\thumbnail.png". Simply renaming swatchbins to PNGs of course doesn't work.

Would you show an example for textures ?

The UV map is not like before, in F4 they used one texture for body...... now they have separate maps as you see in scene folder .... So now the UV map is divided in 13 parts at least!!! You have on texture for each part alone!!!!

The only issue i see right now to have usable 3D models is the fact that some mesh names have more then 1 lod, in fact they have all lods together and it´s impossible to work and separate them in a good and fashion way.... You need to do the work manually and that will take big amount of your time doing it!

On the AST_DB11 for instance body_a_4 has all body lods packed together on same name, if it was a way to make the extraction with separate lods it would make more sense.....
To use blender or 3ds max is the same thing, some names have the lods all packed together on same name item.

An example of what i´m talking about, made some tests on FORZA 6 APEX model and what is happening:

File comes with 5 LOD´S packed all together

Image

After some work detaching parts and reassemble them in order to fit properly i found those 5 lods

Image

Same happens on bumpers front and rear, bodys, wheels, calipers, rotors, doors, fenders etc, all the big ones with more then 3000/4000 faces are meshes with several lod meshes all together.

Hope you or someone find the solution for this.
So you mean they are grouped with same name inside each other?

oh that is not good i think. So should I import one part by one?

must be some way so fix that. you guys are brilliant here

I hope so...... hopefully someone will fix that, not me since i´m a noob on reversed engineering and need to relie on others....

So physically is only way to separate them? Or are they partly detached?

that's a known problem I've met with Forza Horizon (didn't care for MS 6).

So far it can only be done manually -
AST_DB11_body_a_4-divided.JPG
you might have a look at this zipped obj file of AST_DB11-body_a to understand the problem better:
AST_DB11-body_a.zip

(Maybe there's some kind of magic table in the modelbin files where the "borders" of the lods are defined?)

so, finally I've come to a point where I'm a little bit stuck.
As you may know there's some submeshes (groups) which contain two or more submeshes.

There's up to 5 uv regions (blocksizes from 12 to 36 in modulo 4 steps) per object (*.modelbin) but that's not enough.
(I've detected an identical amout of uv regions with the same vt count (or about 100 vts less in some cases)
with a block size of 16 bytes but couldn't get them displayed properly, so it might be normals.)

Many autocreated groups are superfluous, means 4 to 6 of them should build ONE group only
but from the picture you can see that the triangles' FI NUMBERS are quite a mess partially
so it's hard to decide programmatically where the groups to start/end.

This list maybe contains the bounding boxes of the lods of AST_DB11, but didn't help either:

Code: Select all
