[TOOL][WIP] OIV Package Assistant for OpenIV



  • Hello my modding Friends,
    today I would like to show you what I am currently working on.

    We all know the struggle of huge mods that take ages to install , like if you have to replace hundreds of texture files.
    Neither the modder nor the user want's to create an automatic installable OIV package because it's frustrating and takes pretty long aswell.

    Well, I am pleased to tell you that these scenarios are over soon. This tool will be mostly designed for modders to create OIV packages that they can upload.

    Modders will be able to create OIV files without even touching the underlying XML, you can edit all information within the application and can import complete folder structures and files. (Folder structures have to be the same as the GTA archives)

    Already implemented Features

    • Create new OIV
    • Edit all sorts of metadata whithin the OIV
    • Load existing OIV files
    • Export OIV files
    • Import folder structures and files
    • Visible preview

    Stuff that needs to be implemented until release

    • Convenient XML Editor
    • Templates (like car mods)
    • Auto application update

    So, where is this tool then?! i wanted to edit an existing OIV, and, to my surprise, found no OIV packager at all, except for a real old one that open with a warning saying saying it's extremely unstable, and that we'll see a new version tomorrow... and that was like 2 years ago.

    @meimeiriver You can get the tool here: https://www.gta5-mods.com/tools/openiv-package-creator

    Thank you!

    For the time being, I used an existing OIV file structure, and realized it's really just a renamed ZIP file. :)
