Quick and dirty Bloodlines Tools version 3.9a build 210205-0055

---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

Features :

-----------

Current features are :

* VPK data extraction (001-009 and 101+103 contain data)

* Texture conversion :

* TTZ->VTF, TTZ->TGA

* VTF->TTZ, VTF->TGA

* DDS->VTF, DDS->TTZ

Conversion to TGA currently supports these pixel formats :

* DXT1 (no alpha)

* DXT3 with explicit alpha

* DXT5

* RGBA8888 and BGRA8888

* BGR888

* Texture header modification

* Rudimentary (=useless at the moment) model information

* Model texture path and texture name changing!

(Ugly hack, don't overuse)

* Map entity editor! (Extremely rudimentary, no interface)

* Savegame unpacker (nothing useful as of yet)

* Savegame trimmer (warning, *only* use for mod creation testing)

Notes :

-------

* When converting textures to TTZ, the TTH file is needed

in the same directory. This file is *also* edited, so don't

forget to copy the new TTH too, if you're working in a

different directory.

* The texture path/name changing is a really ugly hack, so don't

overuse it. Don't forget to COMMIT any changes you made when

you're done. Don't commit UNTIL you're done changing either tho,

unless you want the file to be bloated with useless dead info ;)

* The savegame trimmer removes all savegame information except

for the current map information. This means your inventory, quests

and stats are saved, as well as some location specific data, and that

modified map info is reloaded from the BSP files so you can check

out your mods. However, ALL the other information for other places

will have been stripped, meaning that for example in the SM Hub,

you can see Mercurio drag himself back into the appartments, and

talking to Bertram takes you back to the Sabbat Warehouse.

You've been warned ;)
