[Jurassic World Evolution] Barbasol modding tool
#1
3D Modelling 
Hey there VGResource!

Last month I finished up on several weeks of personal research into Jurassic World Evolution's file format, and that resulted in a modding tool for the resource (OVL) files. It doesn't just read data from the archive, it's also possible to inject data and then resave the archive (though that's pretty experimental). Unfortunately I can't promise any further updates, but here you go! Big Grin
   
*DISCLAIMER* I've decided to provide this software and source as-is, it's still pretty rough, and as such I cannot be held responsible for anything that happens when using the program, like if it breaks your computer or if it steals your wife or something.

I've also spent quite a bit of time researching the tex and ms2/mdl2 header data formats, it's nowhere near done yet, but I've left that code in for those who are interested. Enjoy and hope you all have a great day!

This is a great start! Is there anywhere where one could keep up-to-date with this, or even help developing it?

Afraid I don't have any plans to continue development at the moment, due to other projects taking up all my time, but maybe in a few months! Thanks for the reply, appreciate it Smile

Your Tool could be stunning and the best tool what exist for this game
Please don't stop this amazing work

Btw... can your tool later export the right skin plate position too ?

that's what i miss mostly on the JurassicWE tool... it exports the textures... but dosn't support the skin plates and scales what frontier used in their game !!!!

This is just what I have been looking for, thank you so much!

Is there a way of doing anything with this without access to Visual Studio? I'm wondering if it would work for OVLs from a different game.

I managed to compile an exe version for personal use that doesn't require visual if this helps

Although from my sluthing, it seems that different games use the format differently

Thank you for sharing a compiled version. It doesn't seem to do anything with a Dog's Life OVL, so I guess that means the file's internals are different. And now I've realised Jurassic World Evolution's release date makes those games 15 years apart and they likely share nothing in common. So yeah, it was a bit far-fetched. Still worth a shot though.
