LBA2 island models
Hello there, I don't know if there is still people here interested in this.

Years ago I got some island models in 3DS format, from a project called LBANET. That project seems dead and I lost the copy I had downloaded.

I found a program called lba2extviewer that can render all the 3d islands and it looks awesome. But there is no way to convert the models to a modern format.

I'd love to get the islands models to test an engine I'm programming in C, or at least some info about the islands format to try and convert them myself.

It would also be awesome to have lba2extviewer source.

Hey Mills,

You can find it here:

Use the Island Viewer in to help you visualise all pieces.

Thank you very much xesf :). The remake looks awesome.

I don't understand JavaScript very well, is the program loading the islands from the original game files?

Thanks ;)

Yes, the remake is using the original files.
Go to the index.ts file and locate loadIslandScenery. You can see there the resource loading and if you follow this function you will see how the island is created.

I think I can do something with that.

Thanks again.

LBA island viewer
Hi, I saw your LBA island viewer. But it has no export. Can you please tell me how can I export the island as a 3d model? Or tell me where I can find a description of the island format and objects on it.
