I am presently helping out over at the official Witcher wiki witcher.gamepedia.com tracking the new quests etc. for the recent DLC Blood and Wine.


Trying to export the in-game map markers

As it turns out the map marker icons have been expanded for several new types of locations:

  • vineyard infestation
  • vintner's contract
  • vintner

to only name those I have found so far. But how do you get the original in-game icons for them? Preferably as svg (if possible) or png.


What I have tried so far

I downloaded and installed the latest Modkit update (v1.1) and that let me uncook the <gamedir>\content and <gamedir>\DLC folders without any problems via:


wcc_lite uncook -indir="D:\Games\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\content" -outdir=D:\Uncooked -imgfmt=png


wcc_lite uncook -indir="D:\Games\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\DLC" -outdir=D:\Uncooked_DLC -imgfmt=png


But as it turns out quite a few of the unpacked xbm files, especially those under engine\ just cannot be exported to png or tga. I.e. the huge "uncooking" fails to do so, and manual exporting on a per file basis fails as well.



So, if anyone knows how to export the new map marker icons, the help would be appreciated.


Thanks, AEon

You have to use Sarcen Mod Editor to extract worldmap swf file and Sothlink SWF Decompiler to dump all icons from that swf :smile:
Grab icons here.
