Can't managed to extract files from ARK SE mod
« on: June 01, 2024, 00:23 »

I am trying to extract the textures of the dragon from this mod https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1652120435 but it just doesn't work. The files won't even load on UModel once I run it. Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong?

@DinoDude2000: If I remember correctly, some mods from the game are using compressed assets (*.uasset.z), which are not supported directly. You need to decompress them first, for example with attached quickbms script. Also make sure that you don't try to open server assets (only client ones), as they don't contain any graphics, but can be recognized by umodel.

Example of batch usage of the script: quickbms.exe -F "{}.z" script.bms "input folder (with mod)" "output folder"

Hmmm, I don't know how to do that. Whatever, Atlas is pretty cheap now, I'll just buy it and extract the textures directly from there.
