Industrial Park (level editor)

From Heavy Iron Modding

Industrial Park is a tool made by community member igorseabra4 in C# using SharpDX. It is an editor capable of opening a number of HIP/HOP files and display the level, with models and textures for level and objects, as well as edit some of the asset types in Battle For Bikini Bottom, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Scooby-Doo: Night of 100 Frights, The Incredibles and The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer for all platforms (except the point-and-click PC versions of the SpongeBob games).

This tool is based off from, and shares a lot of its source code with another one of the creator's tools: Heroes Power Plant, a tool to edit levels in Sonic Heroes. Being also based on the RenderWare engine, both games share their model format. It also gave Industrial Park the convention of being named after a level in the game. Industrial Park uses TxdGen for converting textures and vgmstream for previewing sounds.

The program is still under development, so features are still planned, and it is possible that functions of the tool don't work as expected.

Asset Types[edit]

The following table shows the current status of each asset type for Industrial Park. Some are editable, some can be used only for display, and some must be edited externally.

Asset Status Info
ALST Edit
ANIM Edit
ATBL Edit
BOUL Edit, Display from model See Boulders for more information.
BSP, JSP Edit, Display BSP and JSP models will be displayed in the world. Industrial Park's BSP/JSP editor allows you to:
  • Edit individual mesh colors, material names and atomic flags (JSP only).
  • Edit individual sections and settings in JSPINFO asset.
  • Use the Export function to export the model to one of the Assimp formats. OBJ or DAE are recommended. This might not work on all models; it has a higher change of working on Xbox files. It can also be exported as a raw BSP (BSP assets) or DFF (JSP assets).
  • Import function grayed out as it hasn't been implemented yet.

MODL Edit, Display Assets with references to MINF or MODL will be displayed as that model in the world. Industrial Park's MODL editor is similar to the BSP/JSP editor and allows you to:
  • Edit individual mesh colors, material names and atomic flags.
  • Use the Export function to export the model to one of the Assimp formats. OBJ or DAE are recommended. This might not work on all models; it has a higher change of working on Xbox files. It can also be exported as a raw BSP (BSP assets) or DFF (JSP assets).
  • Use the Import function to select a model file to import. Industrial Park uses Assimp for model importing, so DFFs will be imported as they are, while other formats will be converted to DFF - using either OBJ or FBX is recommended. This does not work with rigged models and any rigging present in the files will be discarded during the conversion.

  • Import the sound's data as it is. This will not mess with the SNDI asset.

The SND/SNDS editor also includes a function to import external JAW data and automatically send it to the JAW asset. The SND/SNDS editor can play sounds in GameCube (Scooby or BFBB) and Xbox (all games) archives.

Research/Advanced[edit]

This is a tab in Industrial Park with tools that don't fit elsewhere in the program. It's recommended to only use these tools without any Archive Editor window open.

Asset ID Generator[edit]

On this window, each line typed into the top text box will be run through the BKRD hash algorithm and an asset ID will be generated from it in the bottom text box.

Event Search[edit]

Use Choose Root Directory to pick a folder; all HIP/HOP files in the folder and any subfolders will be included in the event search. Click Perform Search and all events which match the set filters found in any of the files will be logged. You can filter the asset types of the sender and reciever assets (Null allows for any) and the events which are recieved and sent in each link (Unknown allows for any). For example: if you leave sender asset as TRIG, target asset as Null, recieve event as Unknown and target event as Enable, you will be returned all links which are sent from TRIGs to any assets which have Enable as the event being sent in any HIP/HOPs in the folder you choose.

DYNA Search[edit]

Use Choose Root Directory to pick a folder; all HIP/HOP files in the folder and any subfolders will be included in the DYNA search. Click Perform Search and all DYNAS found in any of the files will be logged.
