WoW.export public beta

A complete rewrite of WoW Export Tools now available for public beta testing

About

The old exporter was hard to maintain and rather unstable when doing certain things (e.g, baking terrain textures). After being repeatedly frustrated by modifying things in that exporter, Kruithne set out to build a modern, more maintainable/future-proof and generally better alternative to the currently available version of WoW Export Tools.

Features

All the features you know and love from the old exporter are present, new features include:

  • New look based on WoW.tools
  • Built-in updater
  • Modelviewer with better controls
  • Better sound/music player
Features from the old exporter still in development:
  • Terrain foliage exports
  • Unnamed models/textures in file list

Beta

We feel that this version is now feature-complete enough to start testing it publicly. Please report issues on the issue tracker or Discord.

Important
- When setting up, please use a NEW export folder rather than one you used for WoW Export Tools (or other tools) so that in the case of bugs, we're not getting mixed up data.
- Reinstall the Blender plugin if you have the previous version installed

Download

First time installs only, the application has a built-in updater that notifies you when a new version is available.

Changelog

0.1.9 (13-01-2020)
- 'Enable Shared Textures' now exports textures to their full path, rather than a unified directory.

- Fixed issue that prevented exported WMOs with empty groups.
- Fixed issue that prevented some files from being available in remote mode.
- Fixed issue in Blender plugin that slowed down imports significantly.
- Fixed issue in Blender plugin where it would crash on models without materials.
