DOTA2 MOD Helper
Hello, I am totally new in this forum since I spend my projects at shady mod forums, but I just want to share something that might help you modding dota2. I created a automation tool that will help everyone to generate mods automatically without the use of internet. I call it DOTA2 MOD Master
I know that majority of all has internet all the time. But there will always be consequences, server breakdown, downloaded mods from the internet are outdated/broken inside the game. But this tool can generated over 5000+ cosmetic items extracted from your “pak01_dir.vpk” for just 5 minutes(depending on your computer).
The mission of this tool is everytime you make a mod, it makes sure that when you finally construct a mod, all files will be fresh and updated from the time you generated them.
Its always exhausting to open gcfscape and open pak01_dir.vpk in order to extract the files you need. So dont worry. Let DOTA2 MOD Master do the work for you
But basically, every tool has their limitations: - can only generate .vmdl_c and .vcpf_c files - still does not support generating .vmat_c files -This tool is “items_game.txt” dependent. Any references that does not exist on the items_game.txt will not be detected(that ‘s the reason why “material” files are not supported yet) -models that dont have default alternate item slot(eg morphling’s helmet) will not be extracted -models that have alternate/dynamic animations(commonly arcana heroes that have alternate animations when arcana mode) will not function properly
But even though all those limitations, this tool becomes a great help to me generating my mods, custom sets. Ect. Not just that, this tool Has many features too, like external files, Migration System, custom database lists,ect.
