Strange way to set flags considering there's at least 13 of them. It also looks like original LS3D editor could handle a lot of different inputs as there's inconsistency in dummy properties naming.

I could imagine the designers were given a simple text box to edit 4ds object tags. In this case specifying flags with a string is a compact and fairly straight forward way I'd say; certainly more so than having to specify a numeric value (like you have to in MWE Sarcastic).

What does it do?

It parses cache.bins and prints the contents in a human readable way.

I have found the dumper and created a dump of the vanilla freeride cache.bin but I don't recognize any patterns I'm afraid. The output can be downloaded from here if anybody is interested: http://www.ccgm.de/Mafia/frcachedump.7z.

*-full.txt is the full dump which also includes dumps of the instances per base block while *-base.txt only lists the base blocks.

This won't help :/ Maybe if it could also dump from game memory to compare them, but that probably wouldn't help either since they show up after going away and back. Have you seen what I wrote earlier? - That vanilla cache.bin bases are ordered in reverse to the order of links in vanilla tree.klz. Maybe that could lead to something.

Are you sure? Sticking out tongue "VOLB,0x13,NFT" flag from @zidle01.4ds Sticking out tongue (56 flag).

I was hoping that some patterns would emerge, like blocks being arranged as scanlines or something, but it doesn't look like it. Sad

From the looks of it I'd say this is coincidental. For example:
Code:

00022460   4F 62 6A 65 63 74 36 36  00 20 20 20 01 00 00 00  4D 65 73 68 31 39 00 20  01 00 00 00 62 61 73 65   Object66.   ....Mesh19. ....base

In the first dump the order of the links is identical to the order of the base block definitions in cache.bin while it is reversed in the second dump.

I'd argue that once you get a grip on what flags the letters correspond to NFT is easier to digest than 56.

Well, was worth a try.

After looking at RCF topic I gave shader water a go today at last. It looks awesome







Still, there's some kind of gap which has to be fixed.
