PK3 Creator 0.2.2 is ready for download!
Automatic Texture & Model import added!
Changes from v0.11 to v0.2.0:
- Added Automatic Texture & Model importing.
- Visual updates, texture/shader/model etc lists now show icons and column headers.
- Texture/shaders/models etc lists now show if a file is Standard (exists in pakx.pk3) or not.
- Fixed a few minor bugs
Changes from v0.2.0 to v0.2.2:
- For some people the exported PK3 files cannot be read by W:ET. I added an 'Export to Folder' feature so that you can copy the files that belong in your PK3 to a folder. You can select which folder to export them to, after which you can just zip them up with whatever method you are comfortable with.
What is PK3 Creator?
PK3 Creator is a small application that can help you create your PK3 map file.
It uses a simple user interface that allows you to quickly locate and select all the
required files. The user interface makes it nearly impossible to forget files!
You don't even need to remember in which directory certain files should
be located; PK3 Creator handles everything for you. You simply press the button of
the required file, and you are brought immediately to the correct directory where your
file will be waiting for you.
In addition, PK3 Creator can automatically find and add up to 95% of all required files,
if they are available, after selecting the BSP file. It automatically finds the following files
based simply on the name of the BSP file:
• the Lightmap Directory,
• the Tracemap tga file,
• the Script file,
• the Objective Data (objdata) file,
• the Arena file,
• the Sounds file,
• the SPS file,
• the Loading Image,
• the Commandmap Image,
• the Locations (_loc.dat) file.
It also reads the BSP file itself and finds every Texture, Shader and Model you may have used.
In conclusion: if you have organized all the above files properly in your W:ET mapping installation,
all you need to do is select your BSP file and choose "Export To PK3" and you're done!

Download (Version 0.2.2)
Please make sure to uninstall the old version (0.1 or 0.11) before installing the new (0.2) version!
In addition, I decided to post the entire source code so far.
Note also that you need Visual Studio 2008 or possibly Visual Studio Express 2008 (free) to open the source. Please read the Readme.rtf file published in the source zip file for further information.
The source is written in Visual Basic 9 (VB.NET 2008) which I know many people are not familiar with... But hey, can't have everything in life
Note: the source is for version 0.2.0. The changes to 0.2.2 are too minor to update the source...
