Frosty Tool Suite

The frosty tool suite is a suite of tools for editing games that run on the Frostbite engine. Currently the tool suite consists of an editor for creating the mods that change the game and a mod manager for launching game with said mods.

________________________

The current list of supported Frostbite games is as follows:

  • Mass Effect: Andromeda
  • Mirrors Edge: Catalyst
  • Star Wars: Battlefront
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Need for Speed
  • FIFA 17


________________________

The following features are available from the Editor:

  • Texture previewing/import/export
  • Mesh previewing/export to fbx, dae, obj (fbx, dae support skinning)
  • Sound previewing/export to wav
  • Full asset editing capabilities through a property grid, including new class instantation. New asset creation is not available at this time
  • Launching from the editor to be able to quickly preview your mod ingame
  • Bookmarking frequently accessed assets
  • Searching/filtering by name and type of asset (hint: the following keywords are supported - type, contains, startswith, endswith. Searches can be concatenated via AND/OR eg. contains: cora AND type: TextureAsset would return all TextureAsset assets with cora in the name)


________________________

The following features are available from the Mod Manager:

  • Multiple profiles
  • Install mods directly from rar, zip, 7z (7z can be a little problematic, if it crashes the tool, just extract the files and install thru the normal process)
  • Additional command line arguments can be passed thru to the executing game
  • Mod Manager can be launched via a shortcut or command line to execute a given profile and then shutdown (setup a shortcut with the following: FrostyModManager.exe -profile <ProfileName>)
