Tools

Legendary Explorer has a large set of tools to help you accomplish what you need.

Package Editor

Package Editor is the main editor that developers use to edit the toolset.

The main editor tool for the series, Package Editor lets you modify textures, meshes, sound, properties, and more all within a single window, with the file shown in its logical heirarchy.

With multiple subtools to get the job done, Package Editor is the premiere tool to use for modding.

Asset Database

In order to create mods, you need to typically edit existing content, and Asset Database is the best tool for quickly finding what you need.

Specialized Editors

In addition to Package Editor, Legendary Explorer has multiple tools dedicated to specific workflows.

Sequence Editor

Modify kismet sequences to create your own flow of the game, from conversations to combat. Trace kismet execution with the Kismet Logger ASI to help debug issues.
