PTS Datamining – 1/30/2017 (4.1 spoilers)
10 days later, another patch! PTS now has Tarjulia up and running on Tartaric Depths, alongside many updates to the zone’s texture. Of course, the patched game files have more interesting things to offer, such as a first look at the T1 raid gear!
imathrowback’s contributions to The Ghar Station’s datamining toolset has proven to be invaluable, allowing a complete rewrite of our main asset extraction script, allowing us to focus entirely on newly patched files. This has allowed us to obtain some exciting new things, and apply textures FAR more easily to game models!
- T1 Raid gear – Cloth & Plate
- Updated texturing for Tartaric Depths ruins
- New icons! Carli set + Usukel Set
- New mount icon + New misc icons
T1 Raid gear – Cloth & Plate
You will notice that two of these have a weird color to them. This is a “specular” highlight, indicating some level of reflectivity on the material.
Updated texturing for Tartaric Depths ruins
I thought this one was a cool example of the new texture extraction method.
New icons! Carli set + Usukel Set
First up, the new Carli set. I reached out to the dev team, and found out that this will not be available at the launch of 4.1, but it is coming… eventually.
Next, the Usukel set. Who will wear it better, a male dwarf or a male bahmi? The order here is helm, “male” body, “female” body, gloves, “male” “pants”, “female” “pants”, and foot.
New mount icon + New misc icons
Finally a new icon that I think is a mount, but could very well turn out to be a piece of eternal gear, followed by 2 new icons.
That’s it for this patch! Cool new stuff for 4.1, and some interesting glimpses into the future.
Ghar Station, signing off!
