I see that everything in the Mod is based on the Windows .dds. Would anyone mind overmuch if I attempt to port this mod to Mac. Does anyone know a good .dds to .png convert of Mac OSX… XD
Wow, that actually went way faster then I had though. The key was GraphicConverter (for OSX) by Lemke Software GmbH. This let me batch convert all the .dds images in the DATA folder in one go.
The next step was a bit tricker because of all the files referencing the .dds images. I didn’t want to encode all of it by hand and all that really needed to be changed was the extension from .dds to .png in the text files. I ended up using a combination of Automator and AppleScript to do a mass find and replace on all the text files. I’ll see about getting the workflows and scripts posted for those interested in creating Mac versions of mods.
I guess the same can be done for Mac users who make mods on their machines and then want to port to Windows.
