TXDP = TXD Parent

not sure if the use is known
there was a post recently (by Steve M I think) which mentioned them
but can't find it at the moment

anim = animated map objects
same as the objs section, except for an additional .ifp name after the .txd name, so:

ID, dffname, txdname, ifpname, drawdist, flags

txdp = txd parent, to extend texture packages with generic textures

txdname, txdparentname

If a texture for an object isn't found in the assigned txd, and there is a parent txd specified, the game looks there for the texture. Might even work hierarchical, haven't tested yet (parent of parent of txd).

Also to note is that there were 760 txdp's in PS2 data files and only 23 in PC version. So I guess it was working as some kind of resource optimization for PS2. PC version obviously can handle the game without hierarchical txd structure.
