As most other fans of Evolve, I was sad to hear the game was shutting down. However, before it went completely offline, I was hoping that the dev’s could release an extractor or compiler for the game’s .pak files; or another way to provide players with access to the game’s character and model assets for modding purposes?
I was hoping that I could mod some of the textures on the monsters. Specifically, I wanted to add map-specific camouflage textures to the monsters to make them harder to spot. (I feel it would add more of a challenge to the game when playing on a VPN LAN with legacy edition when the game finally goes offline.) However, the game assets are all compressed in .pak files that I cannot access. (I think they are encrypted.)
Other’s have managed to rip the game assets and port them over to SFM already, however I cannot seem to find out how they opened the files, let alone how to put in new texture files in the .pak assets.
Does anyone know a working .pak extractor/compiler? Can the Devs’ release the game assets for modding?
