  1. Heyho, yesterday Skarn told me about the little conversation that some of you had about paying developers and stuff like that. In my opinion it isn't like that we (read as: developers) aren't motivated because we want to get money for our stuff. Many people actually want to create useful tools for the modding and/or emulation scene, but just don't have good ideas or the needed experience for projects they could do. But that's a point where you could bring your ideas in! Tell us which software would make your life much easier. It doesn't matter if you would like to see a launcher, a renaming tool, a tool which will automate a process or a CASC editor. Just tell us what you need. I'll list every requested software in this post. Let's hope that some developer out there can fulfill your wish. Edit: I'm not as active as i'm used to be, that's why probably some ideas are missing and/or not linked. Our requests: .db2 editor (cata-legion) (requested by Skarn) CASC editor (requested by Skarn) M2 plugin for 3D Software (e.g. Blender) supporting animations (in developement by Koward) (requested by Skarn) Zone light editor (requested by Skarn) Continent creator (requested by Skarn) Visual DBC editor (e.g. placing POI on map, talent trees and so on) (requested by Skarn) Visual editor for editing login screen and character creation (requested by Poisonleaf) DBC to SQL and SQL to DBC tool (requested by sshroud) Spell editor (cata) (requested by Смердокрыл) WMO editor (requested by Смердокрыл) All-in-one-texture tool for armors (requested by Alastor Strix'Efuartus) Advanced MySQL editor (requested by Amaroth) ADT, M2 & WMO Legion to WoD (requested by MrXJKz) WBD5 format (DB2) (from Legion or WoD) to CSV (with structures) (requested by MrXJKz) Automatic downgrade Itemdisplayinfo, TextureFileData, Filedata from Legion to WoD and WotLk (requested by MrXJKz) Texture searcher for M2, WMO, etc. (requested by MrXJKz) HoTS and Overwatch Blender Add-on (requested by MrXJKz) .phys enabler from Legion to WoD (requested by MrXJKz) Visual Database Editor like Truice (requested by Amaroth)   (I obviously don't list something like "a good, working map editor", because that's something that everyone wants to have.. )
  2. WoD Modding: General Tutorial

    Hello guys, I don't like to do some introduction so will will be going into it right now ! (I'm french so there might be some  mistakes in my spelling). Tools to do things faster: - 010 Editor v5+ for my scripts to work ( The scripts that fix animations is from Alastor.!OUQz2Cya!I1XLE9iOlDgh2VjzRqIddu2NktyAObZyz2lrkVGM7jE ) All the basic templates like M2Template and SkinTemplate etc... - MyDBCEditor - CascExplore (off course !) - Your Compiled Wod Server with a working database. - HeidiSQL or another software to edit your Database. - A cracked launcher that load your root folders like DBFilesClient.   ALL MODIFIED DBC FILE MUST BE COPIED AND PASTED IN BOTH GAME FOLDER AND SERVER FOLDER !     I - Adding Custom Legion NPC to DB and Creating Them   So, open your Cascexplorer and find your creature from legion that you want ! Good. Now open the folder and drag you "Creature" folder to your WoD Root and go inside it then. Now open your m2 file with 010 Editor and use the script LegiontoWod. It will automatically suppress the MD21 format and version from 12 to 10 for WoD compatibility. Use the M2Template on it and run the Script03 from Alastor to fix some possible issues on the animation (it puts all playbackspeed to 150). You can save and close your m2.   For those that couldn't get a full 010 Editor 5+ or just used their 30 free days on it you can do that in previous version of 010 by deleting all the Bytes before "MD20" and overwriting "12" to "10" on the first line.   Now the go to your DBFilesClient and search for "Filedata", CreatureModelData" and "CreatureDisplayInfo" don't forget to make a backup of the files you are editing just in case ! Open your Filedata.dbc and add a new line to the end (remember the ID that will be shown in hexa !) in the second column write the name of your creature m2 file (example: warden.m2), in the third one just write the access path (example: Creature\warden\) DON'T FORGET THE BACKSLASH AT THE END. Just save. Open CreatureModelData.dbc and add a new line by copying one line and write an big entry like 1000000. Use Wowdev to see if you have everything good. In the third column write the entryid of your mod (el in "Filedata" Open CreatureDisplayInfo.db2, yes an awful db2 file ! But ! You can edit it with what i learned from all the forums ! drag the file to 010 Editor and use my script CreatureDisplayInfoDB2TODBC to convert it and save, now you can open it and add a new line. Don't make the entryid at the end of the file (for me it doesn't work right in game) find a vacant place in previous id order and make a new one, put the creaturemodeldata id (1000000 for example) in the second column and in the 8 to 10 column you can now write your blp access as a string (or maybe only two for 6.2.3). Write their name without the ".Blp" at the end. Use Wowdev as well to check if everything's cool. Save and now go to 010 reload the file and use the script version DBCTODB2 and save.   For previous version of 010, you have to delete the Bytes starting from pos 20 to pos 47 included (14h to 2Fh included).and you have to copy those bytes and after modifying the db2 file, you reload it in 010 and go to edit -> insert/Overwrite -> insert Bytes. Choose start from 14 and add 30 in hex. now you can paste the previous bytes at offset 14h and save.   To forge them, use the general tutorials using creature_Model_Info and creature_template. You can find tutorials on trinity website.     II - Adding and forge items from legion   The process is quite similar to the creature. Just get your weapon and drag the item folder to your wow root and repeat the process from creature with the m2 file until the dbc editing.   Find "Filedata", "TextureFileData" and "ItemDisplayInfo" In Filedata add a new line and remember the entry ID and write the name of your blp this time like: "sword_2h_artifactashringer_d_01_red.blp" and in the last column the path: "item\objectcomponents\weapon\"   Now open TextureFileData with 010 Editor and  edit it like creature display info but manually without the script like explained in the first part of the tutorial. Open your file with you dbceditor and add a line not at the end but prior. Found a place and add your id that follow the order. in the column 2 write your custom texture id that followsthe order and use wowdev for a better knowledge of what you're doing. In column 3 write the number that refers to what items you are adding. In the last one just put the filedata entryid of your texture. Save and convert it back to db2 with the manual 010 edit from the firt part.   Open Itemdisplayinfo and add a new line. In column 2 write your weapon m2 name "sword_2h_artifactashbringer_d_01.m2" et ensuite suivant les indications de wowdev you write the ID of your texture id from TextureFileData. Save and you done with the pre-forge. To forge the item IG use this really cool tutorial that will explained everything better than me ! To forge the item in game follow this great tutorial i found, everything will be explained better than me:   To be continued.
