    Hey, I have a question.
    Is there a Wind Waker HD map editor or anything like that?
    It would be very cool to edit maps and enemies.
    I didnt found on google, just a Wind Waker editor for the gamecube.

    Hell
    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it's not possible to do it atm

    EDIT: I just remembered mods being available for SM4SH, so maybe editing WWHD maps could also be possible

    I'm guessing you mean this?

    It's a WIP, and the devs update on Twitter,

    Yeah, it's for the GameCube version, but that one looks better anyway IMO. Somebody even got the Swift Sail working I believe.

    The file format is bfres when you extract via the szs file.

    Use this to extact szs files
    https://github.com/jam1garner/WiiUZip/releases/tag/v0.7

    And for bfres you can do two things.
    Texture editing
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-bfres-texture-injector.422580/

    Vertex edting
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/alpha-bfres-vertex-tool-aka-most-nintendo-models.443529/

    A nice WIP viewer (SMB made the branch, tool developed by Jam, Ploaj, and Y2K)
    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/203588032467566594/250236529270718464/Release.zip

    Git repo of said tool
    https://github.com/jam1garner/Smash-Forge

    No model importing exists yet but hopefully soon.
    This format is used in may games such as

    (List by RTB)
    Animal Crossing Plaza
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Game & Wario
    Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

    Exactly. LordNed and Sage of Mirrors' WindEditor is designed to render BDL model files, and the last game to use them was Super Mario Galaxy 2, back in 2010 on the Wii. It would have to be rewritten from the ground up to work with BFRES. Whether the rest of the files and filesystem is the same, I do not know, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    hmm i think will wait a couple years until someone made an editor..
    It would be nice to edit enemies or add more enemies.

    as of now you can replace actors (objects, NPCs, enemies, ...) on any map and define their properties. There're even some unused properties. But a lot of research has to be done tho...
    But huge model editing is yet not possible

    Any pointers on texture editing? Specifically Link's texture location if anyone knows...
