TOOL: LOTRO AutoAssetCreator

started a small project too (inspired )

95% complete to v1.0 (will finish tomorrow prolly)

Discription of what the app does.

Application allows you to make "new Assets".

You get to choose the "AssetType" and to give your asset a name.

AssetType is a list of all known ArtAssetID's (E.G ArtAssetID="bag1")

The application then allows you then to press a button (create) and the application will create the TGA file (to the correct size), the xml file with the xml already written to include the name of your new asset.


E.G

i created an asset type of "Bag1" called my asset name "test" and this is my xml file from it.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<opt>
<SkinName Name="bag1_test"></SkinName>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1" FileName="bag1_test.tga"></Mapping>
</opt>


simple small application, prolly do other things with it at a later stage and upon requests.

Cavets: You need .net 2.0 installed.

Program Size : < 1MB

Well to V1.0 its 100%.

Looking to add more functionality to it.

Will add a browser function that will show the asset.
Will expand the create single asset to create project where you can add assets to a project file (for asset themes)

Will be a viewer of all assets done in c#

Will include Asset preview, so you can preview the default asset as you make your new assets.

Hopefully will include all required functionality to add / delete / edit / view and stop shy of being able to edit the images in the application.

That type functionality would be included in v3.0 and would probably involve hicks' idea of being able to show a mockup UI

(my main reason for coding this is to get myself familiar with new technologies im sorry if im copying anyone elses ideas)

I've heard, that Microsoft has the patent on this tool since 1988 and they will accuse you

Well, sounds like a useful tool
Will add a "export to photoshop"-button?

Mainly you need a text editor (text editor with color coding is better though) to edit SkinDefinition.xml and Photoshop (or Gimp or something similar) to edit .tga pictures

Gimp
Notepad++

There were some nice tutorials on this site too. Try:

Here's a good tutorial how to handle TGA files:

You will also need the files which you can then edit:
