Hello everyone :)!

 

For the past few months, I have been looking through Island Xtreme Stunts' files. My main goal was to figure out all the characters that you could play as by swapping textures and models. I think I have found almost all of the character textures, but could possibly have missed a few. Here are screenshots for all the character textures in each folder:

After you have created the copy, you can see the files and start modding. Important files are in the cdc folder. Here are all of the subfolders that I have figured out so far:

 

EDITOR - This folder controls all the NPC paths/movements and sets up vehicles on the main Island

 

FE - This folder seems to have to do with the fonts used in the game

 

Z00DEF - Contains all of the following:

  • Gnarly Bones' model and texture (CHAR000.MBK/.BMB)
  • Bricksterbot model and texture (CHAR001.MBK/.BMB)
  • Standard minifig model (CHAR002.MBK)
  • Belinda Blink's texture (CHAR002.BMB)
  • Pepper's hat model and texture (CHAR003.MBK/.BMB)
  • Pepper's model and texture (CHAR004.MBK/.BMB)

This folder also contains the model and texture for the clapboard that pops up on the screen and claps whenever you enter or exit a minigame as well as some other files that I haven't figured out yet.

Z00INT - Contains files used for the intro cutscene
 
Z01LGI - This folder seems to have to do with the brickimals
 
Z01SPP - Contains all files used on Lego Island, including every character's texture (aside from those mentioned in Z00DEF).
 
Z05KST - Contains files used in the Motorbike Mayhem minigame.
 
Z06CAR - Contains files for the Freeway Frenzy minigame
 
Z07JSK - Contains files used in the Wave Catcher minigame.
 
Z14WWH - Contains files used in the Trouble in Store minigames.
 
Z14WPO - Also contains files that Trouble in Store uses.
 
Z15PHF - Contains all files used in the Puzzle Fit minigame.
 
Z20BTR - Contains files used in the Brickster's tower minigame.
 
Z77BLU - Contains files used in the studio and movie theater that appears in the end of the game.
 
Z96PLN - Contains files used in the Air Chase minigame.
 
Z98PSH - Contains files used in  the Ripcord Rescue minigame.

 

The other important thing you should know about the purpose of different kinds of files. Here are all the file formats that have been figured out so far:

 

.BMB files - Texture files*

.MBK files - Models*

.BHF files - Located in the EDITOR folder, these files seems to control the movements of NPC's and set up vehicles around the main island.

 
I haven't found any models/textures for other hats yet, but It seems that the TOYS.TDF files located in the Z##XXX folders have to do with the hats, plants, and vehicles. I opened the file in Notepad++ to see if I could find anything interesting, but a lot of the text was just junk. There were some interesting phrases, though. Here is what I found in the TOYS.TDF located in Z01SPP:

In case you don't know why I underlined "CHIN" and "DJAB", that is because Shugu's beta name was Chin and DJ Jackitt's was DJ Ablebody.

 

After we have figured the files and if it turns out to be possible to create custom textures (And models if we're lucky), I have the following goals:

  • Extend the game's soundtrack
  • Create Lego accurate textures for all of the characters
  • Improve Pepper's face and appearance to make him look like his physical counterpart
  • Possibly increase the number of changeable hats, plants, and color choices for vehicles and maybe even make higher-poly hats

If you have any questions, post them here and I will try my best to answer them ;) .

 

*Credit goes to Acepilot90/IcePlanetAstro for figuring out the purpose of these files

I've got a mostly complete table of character models and textures somewhere on my old laptop, I'll dig it out sometime in the next few days and post it if needed, as figuring everything out yourself can be a bit of a hassle (though there are often character names visible somewhere in plain text which can speed the process up, no need to keep re-loading the game).

Z??WWH (I forgot what numbers are in this folders title) - I am assuming that this folder contains everything that the Trouble In Store minigame at Jack O'trades' shop uses. Z??WPO (I forgot the numbers for this one too 8S ) - This one probably has files used in Maggie Post's version of Trouble In Store

 
They are Z14WPO and Z14WWH, respectively. ;)

I got this list so far for textures in the Z01SSP folder (might have to be gone over to see if 100% correctness, because I found a few mistakes I did once or twice), 000 to 012 are untested.

The characters in Z00DEF folder, I was wondering where they were!

However, the actual levels for Maggie's Trouble in Store minigame are stored in Z14WWH, with Jack's in Z14WWH\LEVELS. Z14WPO could contain the models for Maggie's, /but I'm unsure what the level files go to (see my research into the minigame levels

Thanks! I was pretty sure that the numbers were between 13 and 15, but I couldn't remember if both folders used the same numbers.

Alright, I've got some pictures ready. Here are all of the prisoners with swapped textures:

 

char018.bmb_reskin.png

 

This is CHAR018 with textures from one of the ripcord rescue passengers. This character is seen around the police station and sometimes stops at the construction yard

 

char019.bmb_reskin.png

 

Here is CHAR019 with an unused texture located in Z77BLU (CHAR008.BMB). This character helps Technician Bob at his lab.

 

char020.bmb_reskin.png

 

Here is CHAR020 with another Ripcord Rescue passenger's textures. This character Walks around locations near the pizzeria and sometimes stops at one of the tables.

 

char021.bmb_reskin.png

 

And here is CHAR021 with another passenger's textures. This character sweeps around the studio.

I also have found a higher detailed version of the standard minifig model. Here is the standard minifig model used in Z00DEF (CHAR002.MBK):

As you can see, the new model can be seen better from a longer distance,  has more detailed legs, and fixes texturing glitches that the prisoner and hologram textures had.

Yeah... They do have other facial expressions (I swapped Papa Brickolini's texture with one of the passenger's earlier to see if the textures had different faces), but their default face is their sad/scared face. I'm hoping to later figure out how to change their expressions.

Oooh, that higher poly model is actually in the game. Nice! I knew they had made one...

6150505439_03dd6f7d76_o.jpg

But I didn't know they had left it in the assets.

Though, I'm not sure the hologram's appearance on the standard model is glitched - I assumed it was meant to be like that, without legs and such, so the Infomaniac would appear projected from the compass hologram thing seen in beta screenshots and videos:

... To go along with the blue info bars that show up to tell you what's filming and where. It's just a theory, but I don't see why they would make one texture like that when all the others are normal.

Why do they only model the bottom holes on the legs?
