Create/Port modding tools for Linux

Recommended Posts

q4a

I would like to create/port GTA V modding tools for Linux or may be add support for export-import support to cross-platform formats of Blender/Godot.
I am C++ programmer with some experience porting games from Windows to Linux, but not a modder.


Some things, that was found:
https://github.com/ahmed605/SparkIV - resource viewer/editor for GTA IV.
https://github.com/rwengine/openrw - re-creation RenderWare engine. Has open source viewer for GTA III files, but nothing for GTA IV or V.
http://gtamodding.ru/wiki/ (russian) - there is a small description of the file format, but no more.
https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Category:File_Formats - same as above, but in english.

I will be grateful if you provide links to the description of the GTA IV or V file formats or open source modding tools for GTA.

PS I know that Linux marketshare  is 1-2 % and nobody cares, but I just want to learn something new and test my coding skills.

Hi. Yes, I have: q4a#3114
I started to learn Godot: I think to start with simple plugin which import GTA IV data.
https://github.com/q4a/opengri
There is some similar  plugin, that import Quake maps (.map):
https://github.com/Shfty/qodot-plugin


So, there will be cross platform tool-plugin and not so hard to do 😃
