About this mod

xEdit plugin by zilav that allows you to open a nif from a static's file path

Permissions and credits
Thank you Zilav for your mad coding skills!

I'm very proud to present this xEdit Plugin by Zilav for your use!


Now OPEN ANY records assets in any game supported by xEdit! 

  • Selection window is shown when several assets found in a record. 
  • Works for nif, dds, wav and xwm files. Also opens facegeometry mesh if applied to NPC_ record. 
  • Notifications are shown in status bar (file being opened or if missing).

See version 2.0 

What does it do?
Allows you to open a .nif file  ANY FILE (same as if you 2x clicked on the hard drive) from the statics ANY category by pressing ctrl + o (not zero)

How does it work?
1. IF the file already exists in your game directory it will open the previously extracted file for editing

and this is the best part... 
2. IF the file does NOT exist, it will automagically find it in the BA2 archives, extract it to a temporary directory, and Open it

Why should I care?
This allows you to quickly see the nif.
Quick editing of extracted assets.
Allows you to keep from pulling your hair out looking for files on the drive.
Uses real magic.

Drop this .pas file into your xEdit "Scripts" folder 
Requires Nifskope 2.0 alpha 4+ (then right click a .nif / choose open with... / navigate to your Nifskope.exe / choose always open with check box / face punch OK)
press ctrl + o to run thats "o" NOT zero ;)
